Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֲנָךְ m., Lat. plumbum, lead, i.q. עֹפֶרֶת; hence, for a plumb line; Amos 7:7, חוֹמַת אֲנָךְ “a wall of a plumb line,” i.e. erected perfectly true; verse, “I will set a plumb line to my people Israel,” i.e. I will destroy all things as if by rule and line; compare Isaiah 34:11; 2 Kings 21:13. This word seems to be primitive, or at least the Arab. verb أَنُكَ to be thick, troublesome, slow; fchwerfällig fehn, seems to be denom. from lead, prop. to be leaden. To this answers the Arab. آنُكُ, Syr. ܐܳܢܟܐܳ, Ethiop. transp. ናእክ፡ and even the Armen. աՆաԳ anak, all of which comprehend both black and white lead.
