Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מִצְרַיִם pr.n. dual, Egypt, Genesis 46:34, 50:11 often more fully, אֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם the land of Egypt, fem., Genesis 45:20, 47:6, 13 Genesis 47:13 also the Egyptians; commonly in prose writers with a pl. (Genesis 45:2, 47:15, 20 Genesis 47:20, 50:3 Exodus 1:14), rarely with a sing. masc., 14:25, 31 Exodus 14:31 poet. with sing. masc., Isaiah 19:16, 25 Isaiah 19:25; Jeremiah 46:8 and f., Hosea 9:6. Singular מָצוֹר (which see), lower Egypt; both this and the upper, (called by its particular name פַּתָרוֹס), seem to have been denoted by zeugma, by the dual מִצְרַיִם; like the two Sicilies used for Sicily and Naples; although this origin being afterwards neglected, the dual מִצְרַיִם is also found when it does not include Pathros (Isaiah 11:11; Jeremiah 44:15). Others refer the dual form to the land being divided in two by the Nile. [But this country had its name from Mizraim a son of Ham.] (In Arab. there is the sing. مِصْرُ Egypt, pr. boundary; in Syriac, however, there is the dual, although of very rare occurrence in that language ܡܶܨܪܝܶܢ). The Gent. noun is מִצְרִי Genesis 39:1 f. ־ִית 16:1 plur. m. מִצְרִים Genesis 12:12, 14 Genesis 12:14 f. ־ִיּוֹת Exodus 1:19.
