Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אִין unused roots, but widely extended; having prop. the signification of nothing, and negation. [“Like נוּא and its cognate forms, as نهنه نأَنأَ to hinder, מָנַע, מָאַן,” Ges. add.] This, in very many languages is expressed by the letter n; comp. Sanscr. na, no, an, and a privative; Pers. نه, نا; Zend and Copt. an; Gr. νη in νήπιος, νημερτής, and ἄνευ; Lat. ne, nemo, non; also in, privative, prefixed to adjectives; Germ. nie, nein, and vulgar ne; also ohne and un, privative, prefixed to adjectives; Eng. no; also the Phœnicio-Shemitic and Greek verbs מָאַן, מָנַע, نهنه [given above, and Gr.] ἀναίνομαι; somewhat more rarely by the cognate letters M (Sansc. ma, Gr. μή) and L (לֹא, לָא, לֵא, לֵי, אַל לַי, אָלַל). Hence אַיִן, אֵין nothing, not, אָוֶן emptiness. The idea of nothing is applied

(1) to vanity, hence to falsehood and wickedness; see אָוֶן No. 2, 3 it is said in Germ. es ift nichts daran, nichts an ihm; compare Lat. homo nequam.

(2) to lightness (comp. הוּן) and easiness;

(3) these are applied to living at ease (Arab. أَوْنُ ease, rest, آنَ to live easily, smoothly), riches, wealth (see אוֹן, הוֹן ), and on the other hand a troublesome life is called gravis, heavy (befchwerlich; comp. גַּלְמוּר, קָשָׁה); also

(4) to ease, ability of doing anything; see אוֹן No. 2.

[Also (5), “to be deficient in strength, debilitated, exhausted. Arab. آنَ med. Ye, to be weak, exhausted; أَيْنُ weariness, trouble, sorrow. Hence אָוֶן No. 4, תְּאֻנִים labours,” Ges. add.]

אִין 1 Samuel 21:9, i.q. אֵין, but interrogatively for הֲאֵין.
