(a) to support with the arm, to carry a child, Numbers 11:12; Lamentations 4:5.

Compare סָמוּךְ Isaiah 26:3. Arab. أَمُنَ to be faithful; أَمَنَ is to lean and confide on any one; أَمِنَ to trust, to be secure.


(1) to support, to bear in the arms, as children, Isaiah 60:4. Compare Kal No. 1.

(2) to be founded, firm, stable, e.g. of a house, 1 Samuel 2:35, 25:28 2 Samuel 7:16; 1 Kings 11:38 of a firm place where a nail is driven in, Isaiah 22:23, 25 Isaiah 22:25 of a firm and stable condition, Isaiah 7:9.

(4) metaph. to be faithful, trustworthy, sure, such that any one can lean upon (auf den man bauen kann); of a servant, 1 Samuel 22:14; Numbers 12:7 a messenger, Proverbs 25:13 a witness, Jeremiah 42:5; Isaiah 8:2 of God, Deuteronomy 7:9; Isaiah 49:7; Hosea 12:1.- Psalms 78:8, לֹא נֶאֶמְנָה אֶת־אֵל רוּחוֹ “their spirit was not faithful with God.” Part. נֶאֱמָן upright. Proverbs 11:13, 27:6, נֶאֱמָנִים פִּצְעֵי אֹהֵב “upright are the wounds of a friend,” i.e. proceeding from sincerity of mind, ehr=lich=gutgemeint. Wounds are here used for severe rebukes.

(1) to lean upon, to build upon (auf etwas bauen), prop. Isaiah 28:16, “he that leaneth thereon [believeth in him] shall not flee away.” Generally

(2) figuratively to trust, to confide in (like the Arab. آمَنَ with ب).

(4) perhaps intrans. to stand firm, still, Job 39:24, “she does not stand still where the sound of the trumpet is heard.” Comp. Virg. Georg. iii. 83. From the common use of language it might be rendered, “he so longs for the battle that he hardly believes his own ears for joy.” Compare Job 9:16, 29:24.

[Deriv. אָמָן-אֻמְנָם, אָמוֹן, אֵמוּן, אֱמוּנָה, אֱמֶת, הֵימָן.]
