Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חָמוֹץ m. a violent man, an oppressor, i.q. חֹמֵץ. Isai. 1:17 from the root חָמַץ No. 3, a. According to others, one who has suffered violence or wrong; LXX. ἀδικούμενος, Vulg. oppressus; nor do I object to its being thus taken, as the intransitive form (חָמוֹץ) may assume a passive signification.
