Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אַךְ (shortened from אָבֵן, from the root כּוּן; comp. Ch. הָכֵין, הָכֵי and בְּ, which is taken from the fuller כֵּן: [Derivation given in Ges. corr.: “kindred are כִּי, כֵּן, אָכֵן, see Hupfeld in Zeitschr. f. d. Morgenl. ii. 143.”]).

(1) affirmative part. surely, certainly, no doubt. Genesis 44:28, אַךְ טָרֹף טֹרַף “no doubt he is torn;” Judges 3:24; 1 Kings 22:32; 2 Kings 24:3 Ps. 58:12 Job 18:21. Hence

(2) adv. of limitation, only. Exodus 10:17, אַךְ הַפַּעַם “only this once;” Leviticus 11:21, אַךְ אֶת־זֶה תֹּאכְלוּ “only these ye may eat;” Psalms 37:8, “be not angry, (for this is) only for doing evil,” i.e. anger is often the cause of crime; Proverbs 14:23, “vain words אַךְ לְמַחְסוֹר only (lead) to want;” Proverbs 11:24, 21:5. Specially it is used

(a) before adjectives, where only is i.q. quite, altogether. Deuteronomy 16:15, וְהָיִיתָ אַךְ שָׂמֵחַ “and thou shalt be only joyful,” i.e. altogether joyful. Isaiah 16:7, אַךְ נְכָאִים “altogether contrite;” Isaiah 19:11.

(b) before substantives, nothing but, which may often be rendered solus, merus, Germ. lauter; Engl. merely. Psalms 139:11, אַךְ חשֶׁךְ “nothing but darkness,” i.e. merely darkness. Psalms 39:12, אַךְ הֶבֶל “nothing but vanity,” i.e. mere vanity.

(c) before adverbs and verbs, quite, altogether. Psalms 73:13, אַךְ רִיק “altogether in vain.” 1 Samuel 25:21; Job 19:13, יֹדְעַי אַךְ זָרוּ מִמֶּנִּי “my acquaintances are quite alienated from me.” Judges 20:39; Job 23:6. Comp. Exodus 12:15, אַךְ בַּיּוֹם הָרִאשׁוֹן “altogether in the first day,” is, on the first day itself, nur gleich am erften Tage.

(3) an adv. of exception, only, but. Genesis 20:12, אַךְ לֹא בַת אִמּי “but not (μονονουχὶ) the daughter of my mother.” Leviticus 11:4; Numbers 26:55; Deuteronomy 18:20; Joshua 3:4.

(4) an adverb of time, only now, for just now, scarcely. Genesis 27:30, אַךְ יָצֹא יָצָא יַעֲקֹבוְעֵשָׂו אָחִיו בָּא “Jacob was but scarcely gone out.… when Esau his brother came in.” Judges 7:19. Comp. Cic. ad Fam. viii. 23, “tantum quod ex Arpinati veneram, cum mihi a te litterœ redditœ sint;” Vellej. ii. 117.
