Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אָחוֹת f. (for אֲתֹוֶת, from the masc. אֲחוּ, which in Arab. and Chald. is the same as אֲחִי), pl. with suff. אֲחוֹתַיִךְ Ezekiel 16:55 (sing. אָחָה), and אַחְיוֹחֵךְ Ezekiel 16:52 (sing. אַחְיָה, which is from the masc. אֲחִי), comp. Lehrg. p. 602.

A sister (Arab. أُخْتُ, Syr. ܚܳܬܳܐ for ܐ̱ܚܳܬܳܐ, Ch. אֲחָת id.). It properly signifies an own sister, born of the same parents, but (where accuracy of expression is not important) used also of a sister, ὁμοπατρία, Genesis 20:12; 2 Samuel 13:2, 2 Samuel 13:5, or ὁμομητρία, uterine, Leviticus 18:9, 11 Leviticus 18:11, 20:17. The Hebrews also called sister

(1) a female relative, kinswoman, Job 42:11; Genesis 24:60, where the mother and brother say to Rebecca, אֲחוֹחֵנוּ אַתְּ “thou art our sister.”

(2) one of the same tribe or people, Numbers 25:18.

(3) an ally, a confederate city or state, Ezekiel 16:46, 23:31.

(4) after אִשָּׁה, one … another; used also of inanimate things of the feminine gender, Exodus 26:3, “five curtains shall be joined אִשָּׁה אֶל אֲחוֹתָהּ one to another;” verses Exodus 26:5, Exodus 26:6, 17 Exodus 26:17; Ezekiel 1:9, 3:13.

(5) metaph. sister is used of anything very closely connected with us; Proverbs 7:4, “say to wisdom: thou art my sister;” Job 17:14. Compare the rest of the words which bear the signification of propinquity, especially אָב No. 6, אָח No. 7.

(6) a spouse is lovingly so called, Song of Solomon 4:9, seq. Compare Tibull. iii. 1, 26.
