Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֱנוֹשׁ m.

(1)  a man (see below אֵנֶשׁ ), i.q. אָדָם, but only in poetic language. It is rarely used as a singular in sense, Psalms 55:14; Job 5:17 generally coll. of the whole human race, Job 7:17, 15:14 Psal. 8:5. [This latter passage applies to Christ solely; see Hebrews 2:6.] The same is בֶּן־אֱנוֹשׁ Psalms 144:3. Specially it is

(a) a multitude, the common people; hence Isaiah 8:1, בְּחֶרֶט אֱנוֹשׁ “with common writing,” i.e. with common letters, not those artificially formed, so as to be easily read by the illiterate. Comp. my Comm. on the passage, Revelation 13:18, 21:17, and κατὰ ἄνθρωπον, Galatians 3:15. [This is no illustration at all, the apostle opposes God to man].

(b) wicked men, Psalms 9:20, 56:2 66:12. Comp. אָדָם No. 1.

(2) pr.n., [Enos], Enosh, the son of Seth, the grandson of Adam, Genesis 4:26, 5:6,.
