Qal Perfect 3 masculine singular לְךָ בְשָׂרִי׳כ Psalm 63:2 faint (with longing) for thee ("" צָֽמְאָה לְךָ נַפְשִׁי).
כָּמַהּ to pine with longing for any thing, it once occurs, Psalms 63:2. Arab. كَمِةَ to become dark, used of the eye, a colour, the mind. According to Firuzabadi (see Kamûs, p. 1832, Calcutta), specially used of a man whose colour is changed or fails; pr. therefore to become pale, which is applied to longing; comp. כָּסַף. With this accords Sanscr. kam, to desire; Pers. كام desire; comp. also the Greek κάμω, κάμνω.
Derivative, pr.n. כִּמְהָם.
