Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

זָמַם pret. זָמַמְתִּי and זַמּוֹתִי, fut. יָזֹם pl. יָֽזְמוּ for יָוֹמּוּ (see Gr. § 57, note 11 [§ 66, note 11]; Lehrg. p. 372; for the root יָזַם, which some propose, is altogether fictitious). [In Ges. add. “to meditate, to have in mind, to purpose; Arab. سَمَّ id. It seems to come from the idea of murmuring or muttering, i.e. the low voice of persons talking to themselves or meditating; comp. זַמְזַם to murmur, also הָמָה, הָגָה.” This new definition of this root of course influences the synopsis of meanings, as well as it entirely supersedes the following remark.] Properly to tie, to bind, i.q. the kindred צָמַם, and Arab. زَمَّ to bind, to tie together, whence زِمَامُ a cord. Hence tropically

(1) to lie in wait, to plot, followed by לְ, Psalms 37:12 to purpose, or meditate evil, Proverbs 30:32 followed by a gerund, Psalms 31:14. Hence

(2) as a verb of medial signification, to meditate something, to propose to oneself, followed by an accusative, Genesis 11:6; Lamentations 2:17. Proverbs 31:16, זָֽמְמָה שָׂדֶה וַתִּקָּחֵהוּ “she proposed to herself (to possess) a field, (she considers a field,) and she obtains it.” followed by a gerund, Zechariah 1:6.

With regard to the original signification above proposed [but see the added note], it is sufficient to remark, that verbs signifying binding or weaving are very often applied to counsels, especially in a bad sense, of which examples may be seen under the root אָרַב. Allusion is made to this origin in Job 17:11, זִמּוֹתַי נִתְּקוּ “my purposes are broken off,” that is, like a cord; since the Orientals compare a counsel formed to something woven or wreathed. Vit. Tim. t. i. p. 90: شدّ حزام الحزم he firmly twined the cord of his purpose. In Arabic the figurative idea is found in the verb سَمَّ to purpose to himself, to intend.
