אֻמָּה (from the root אָמַם) f. people, Arab. أُمَّةُ Aram. אֻמְּתָא, ܐܘܽܡܬܐܳ id. Only found in pl. אֻמֹּות Genesis 25:16; Numbers 25:15, and אֻמִּים Psalms 117:1. Syr. ܐܶܡ̈ܘܳܬܳܐ

אֻמָּה Ch. f. id., Daniel 3:29. Pl. אֻמִּין emphat. אֻמַּיָא Daniel 3:4, 5:19 7:14 Ezra 4:10.

I. אָמוֹן m.

(1)  workman, architect, i.q. אָמָן, Proverbs 8:30, used of the hypostatic wisdom of God, the maker of the world. This word does not appear to have admitted the feminine form, any more than Lat. artifex, opifex, whence Plin. ii. 1, Artifex omnium natura. Quinct. ii. 15, rhetorica persuadendi opifex. Others understand son, or foster-child (from אָמַן No. 1) [which is a better rendering].

(2) [Amon], pr.n.

(a) of a son of Manasseh, king of Judah, 644-642 B.C. -2 Ki. 21:1826 ; 2 Chronicles 33:20, seq.

(b) 1 Kings 22:26.

(c) Nehemiah 7:59, called in Ezra 2:57, אָמִי.

II. אָמוֹן i.q. הָמוֹן multitude, crowd, Jeremiah 52:15. Root הָמָה.

III. אָמוֹן Amon, pr.n. of the supreme deity of the Egyptians, worshipped at Thebes with much devotion (see אָמוֹן נאֹ ), Jeremiah 46:25, called Ἄμμων by the Greeks, and compared by them with Jupiter (comp. Herod. ii. 42; Diod. i. 13). On the Egyptian monuments he is generally drawn with a human form and a ram’s head. The name is there written Amn; more fully, Amn-Re, i.e. Amon the sun; see the citations in Thes. p. 115. See also Kosegarten, De Scriptura Vett. Ægyptiorum, p. 29, seq. [“Wilkinson’s Manners and Customs of the Anc. Egyptians, second ser. i. p. 243, seq.”]
