1 a certain quantity of wheat, barley, etc. = ten omers (עֹמֶר) Exodus 16:36 (compare in measure of offerings Leviticus 5:11; Leviticus 6:13; Numbers 5:15; Numbers 28:5, all ׳עֲשִׂירִית הָא; = 1/10 chomer (חֹמֶר) Ezekiel 45:11 (= bath, בַּת, liquid measure q. v.) compare Isaiah 5:10; chiefly of offerings, see above & 1 Samuel 1:24; Ezekiel 45:13 (twice in verse); Ezekiel 45:24 (3t. in verse); Ezekiel 46:5 (twice in verse); Ezekiel 46:7 (3t. in verse); Ezekiel 46:11 (3t. in verse); Ezekiel 46:14; compare Judges 6:19, but also of food 1 Samuel 17:17 compare Ruth 2:17 & Isaiah 5:10 above

אֵיפֹה see below אַי. P.33

אישׁ, אושׁ (Stem assumed in Thes for אִישׁ; existence & meaning somewhat dubious Thes (Add) & most derive אִישׁ from [אִנְשְׁ] √ אנשׁ (q. v.) In favour are plural אֲנָשִׁים, feminine אִשָּׁה = [אִנְשָׁה], lack of proven √ אישׁ, & lack of clear parallels for אישׁ in cognate languages. Against the derivation of אִישׁ from inš is the vocalization (ִ  י, and that fully written, not ֵ), maintained even with suffixes, the (rare) plural אִישִׁים, the impossibility of deriving אִישׁ & אִשָּׁה from same √ (אִשָּׁה from ), the existence of אֱנוֺשׁ as parallel form, and the (exceptional) parallel Aramaic איש (Inscription of Carpentras), also Arabic (compare Frey) "" ; Micah , Sirach , Phoenician אש are not decisive; Sabean has both אסם & אנסם; the former apparently = אִישׁ, the latter אֱנוֺשׁ; but on former compare DHM ZK 1884,360 & SabDenkm37. On the whole, probability seems to favour √ אישׁ; Thes gave meaning be strong; Dl HA 9, Proverbs 161 compare Assyrian išanu, strong (compare Dl w. p. 244), & proper name יְהוֺאָשׁ; compare also Prät LOPh Feb. 1884; otherwise DHM l. e. & ZMG 1883,330 & especially Nö ZMG 1886,739 Lag BN 68; compare also Wetzst in De Psalmen, ed. 4, p. 888 and others see also אנשׁ, אֱנוֺשׁ).
