Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גַּם prop. subst. addition, accumulation; hence part. indicating accession, like אַף (which see).

(1)  also, Genesis 3:6, 22 7:3 19:21, 35 Genesis 19:35, 30:15 35:17, etc. It is prefixed to the words to which it refers, like the Lat. etiam; but when words are repeated for the sake of emphasis, it is put between them; as with pronouns, הִיא גַּם הִיא she herself also, Genesis 20:5 בְּפִיו גַּם הוּא in his mouth also, 2 Samuel 17:5; Proverbs 23:15; Genesis 27:34 (comp. Gram. § 92, 1; [119, 4]; Lehrg. § 191); used with verbs, Genesis 46:4, וְאָנֹכִי אַעַלְךָ גַם עָלֹה “and I will also come up with thee.” Genesis 31:15; 1 Samuel 1:6. It is sometimes put at the beginning of a sentence, referring not to the nearest word, but to one more remote. Genesis 16:13, הֲגַם הֲלֹם רָאִיתִי אַחֲרֵי רֹאִי “do I here see (i.e. live) also after the vision (of God)?” Proverbs 19:2, 20:11 Isaiah 30:33. (Observe the same thing of the part. אַךְ Isaiah 34:14 רַק Isaiah 28:19.) Poet. used sometimes for the simple וְ (compare Dan. og and); Joel 1:12; Judges 5:4; Psalms 137:1. גַּםגַּם also … also, both, and, Genesis 24:25, 43:8 Exodus 12:31 that … so, Jeremiah 51:12 and even put three times, Isaiah 48:8 גַּםוְגַם Genesis 24:44.

(2) Not unfrequently it is used as an intensitive, even (see אַף No. 1 ). Proverbs 14:20, 17:26 Joel 3:2 with a particle of negation, not even, Psal. 14:3 53:4 2 Samuel 17:12, 13 2 Samuel 17:13(comp. עַד No. 3, a).

(3) It often only serves to make a sentence emphatic, and sometimes may be rendered yea, indeed, truly, or else it shews that the next word takes a considerable emphasis. Job 18:5, גַּם אוֹר רְשָׁעִים יִדְעָךְ “yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out.” 1 Samuel 24:12, רְאֵה גַּם רְאֵה see, yea, see (fiehe, fiehe doch!). Genesis 29:30, “and he loved Rachel more than Leah.” Job 2:10, “shall we receive good from the Lord, and shall we not,” etc. Hosea 9:12, “for woe to them!” Genesis 42:22; Job 13:16, 16:19 Isaiah 66:4. So גַּם שְׁנַיִם alle bende, both together, Genesis 27:45; Proverbs 17:15, 20:10, 12 Proverbs 20:12; 1 Samuel 4:17, גַּם כֹּל all together, alle zufammen; 2 Samuel 19:31; Psalms 25:3. גַּם עַתָּה Germ. nun gut, Genesis 44:10.

(4) גַּם־כִּי even if, followed by a fut. Isaiah 1:15; Hosea 8:10, 9:16 and without כִּי Isaiah 49:15; Psalms 95:9. There also occurs כִּי גַם Ecclesiastes 4:14, 8:12.

(5) advers. however, but, chiefly followed by a negative part. Psalms 129:2; Ecclesiastes 4:16; Ezekiel 16:28.
