Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

עָמַק to be deep, metaph. to be unsearchable, Psalms 92:6 compare Greek βαθύφρων, βάθοςσοφίας καὶ γνώσεως Θεοῦ, Romans 11:33. (Arab. عَمُقَ, more rarely with the letters transposed هعق, Aram. ܥܡܩܰ, Eth. ዐመቀ፡ id.)

Hiphil, to make deep, to deepen, often followed by a finite verb. Isaiah 7:11, הַעֲמֵק שְׁאָֽלָה “deepen, ask,” i.e. ask that a miracle may be performed from the deep; and followed by a gerund, in such a manner that it almost becomes an adverb, Jerem. 49:8, 30 Jeremiah 49:30, הֶעֱמִיקוּ לָשֶׁבֶת “make deep your habitations,” dwell in the depths of the earth. Hosea 9:9. Isaiah 29:15, הַמַּעֲמִיקִים לַסְתִּיר “those who hide deeply.” Things are also called deep which extend to a great length before the eye of the beholder, like the Gr. βαθὺς τόπος, a long extended region, βαθεία αὐλή, Il. v. 142; just as we call the space from the front to the back of a house, the depth (die Tiefe des Haufes), comp. עֵמֶק. Isaiah 30:33, הֶעֱמִיק הִרְחִיב מְדֻרָתָה “he hath made the burning pile long and broad;” and metaph. הֶעֱמִיקוּ סָרָה “they have gone far aside,” fie entfernen fich weit, Isaiah 31:6; Hosea 5:2.

Derived nouns, עֹמֵקעָמֵק, and also עֲמִיק, מַעֲמַקִּים, pr.n. עָמוֹק.
