Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אַבְרָהָם Abraham, pr.n., the founder and father of the Jewish nation; the son of Terah, born in Mesopotamia, which he left [as called of God], and sojourned in the land of Canaan with his flocks, in a kind of nomadic life, see -Gen. 1225. In the book of Genesis until 17:5, he is always called אַבְרָם, i.e. “father of elevation;” Gr. Ἀβράμ [Abram]. But in that passage in which a numerous progeny is promised to spring from him, he is called by a slight alteration of his name אַבְרָהָם, i.e. “father of a multitude,” (comp. Arab. رُهَامُ a large number), or as the context itself explains it, אַב הֲמוֹן גּוֹיִם.-אֱלֹהֵי אַבְרָהָם “the God of Abraham,” for “Jehovah,” 2 Chronicles 30:6 Ps. 47:10 זֶרַע אַבְרָהָם “the seed of Abraham,” of the Israelites, Psalms 105:6; Isaiah 41:8. In the same signification there is simply used אַבְרָהָם, Micah 7:20.
