סָמַךְ fut. יִסְמֹךְ

(1)  to place, or lay something upon any thing, so that it may rest upon, and be supported by it. סָמַךְ יָד עַל to lay the hand on any thing (die Hand worauf ftufüßen), so as to lean upon the hand, Exodus 29:10, 15 Exodus 29:15, 19 Exodus 29:19; Leviticus 1:4, 3:2 8:14, etc. Amos 5:19, וְסָמַךְ יָדוֹ עַל־הַקִּיר “and leaneth his hand upon the wall.” Intr. to rest upon any thing. Psalms 88:8, עָלַי סָֽמְכָה חֲמָתֶךָ “thy wrath resteth upon me.”

(2) to uphold, to sustain, to aid (Eth. ሰመከ፡) followed by an acc. Psalms 37:17, 24 Psalms 37:24, 54:6.
