Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 I. [אָנַשׁ] verb be weak, sick (Assyrian anâšu Zim BP 56,70; Wetzst in De Psalmen, ed. 4,882 derive from II. אנשׁ per antiphrasin; Dl Proverbs 160 identified with III. אנשׁ; see also De Psalmen, ed. 4,904; so Lag BN 60, who compare , weichliches d.h. stumpfes Schwert. It seems safer at present to keep the three distinct).

Qal Passive participle אָנוּשׁ Job 34:6 +; אֲנוּשָׁה Jeremiah 15:18; Micah 1:9 & so read Psalm 69:21 (Bi Che) etc.; as adjective incurable, of wound, but metaphor (מַכָּה) Micah 1:9; Jeremiah 15:18; compare Job 34:6 (חֵץ), Jeremiah 30:12 שֵׁבֶר; "" נַחְלָה מַכָּה); so כְּאֵב אָנוּשׁ Isaiah 17:11; compare Jeremiah 30:15 (מַכְאֹב); compare יוֺם אָנוּשׁ Isaiah 17:16; also in phrase עָקֹב הַלֵּב מִכֹּל וְאָנֻשׁ הוּא Jeremiah 17:9

Niph`al Imperfect וַיֵּאָנַ֯שׁ֑ 2 Samuel 12:15 be sick, of child.

II. אנשׁ (compare Arabic be inclined to, friendly, social, which however Nö ZMG 1886,739 thinks denominative, compare collective men, people; see on the other hand Wetzst l.c. Zim BP 20, see also Lag BN 68; — hence אֲנָשִׁים plural of אִישּׁ; see also below אישׁ).
