Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition


(1) prop. to gather together, to collect, to join together, whence עָם a people, עִם with, by, עֻמָּה conjunction. (Arab. عَمَّ is to be in common, but this root is very widely extended both in the Phœnicio-Shemitic, and the Indo-Germanic languages. In the former, compare גָּמַם to collect, whence גַּם, מְגַמָּה, כּוּם to cumulate, and retaining the guttural, אָמַם, עָמָה, חָם kinsman, father-in-law; amongst the latter, compare Latin cum, con, cumulus, cunctus (from cungo = jungo), Gr. κοινός (κυνός), γάμος, and with the palatal letter either softened into an aspirate, or changed into a sibilant, Sanscr. sam, Persic هم, Gr. ἅμα, ὁμός, ὁμοῦ (with an added third radical d and l, ὅμιλος, ὅμαδος, comp. Hebr. עִמָּד, Lat. simul), σύν, ξυνός, Mœsogoth. sama, saman, Anglo-Sax.samo, with French en semble, Dan. san, Germ. fammt, zufammen, fammeln; comp. also as to the Slavonic languages, Dorn üb. die Verwandtschaft des Persischen und Gr. Lat. Sprachstammes, p. 183.)

(2) to shut, to close, hence to hide, to conceal. Used figuratively, for to surpass, Ezekiel 31:8 and intrans. to be hidden. Ezekiel 28:3, כָּל־סָתוּם לֹא עַמָמוּךָ “no secret is hid from thee.” (Arab. غَمَّ to be hidden, covered with clouds, used of the sky. Syr. ܥܰܡ Ethpe. to be covered, as the sky.)

Hophal, הוּעַם to become dim (used of the brightness of gold), Lamentations 4:1.
