Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אִיתַי Ch. i.q. Heb. יֵשׁ there is, from which it is formed. (Arab. أَيْسَ, only in a few phrases, Syr. ܐܺܝܬ, in Targg. אִית, Talmud. איתא) Daniel 5:11, אִיתַי גְּבַר בְּמַלְכוּתָךְ “there is a certain man in thy kingdom;” 2:28, 30 3:25. With a negative particle לָא אִיתַי Daniel 2:10, 11 3:29. Followed by a pl. 3:12. When the various persons of the verb substantive are expressed, the pronouns are suffixed, mostly in the pl. אִיחוֹתִי “he is,” Daniel 2:11 אִיתָנָא “we are,” 3:18 אִיחָיךְ “thou art,” 2:26 אִיתֵיבוֹן “ye are,” 3:14. And these forms, with a participle, serve as a periphrasis for the finite verb. Daniel 3:18, לָא אִיתָנָא פָלְחִין “we are not worshipping,” i.e. we do not worship. When used absolutely, it should generally be rendered there exists, there is, il y a; Daniel 2:10, 11. אִיתַי לְ “there is to any one,” he has, Ezra 4:16.

אִיתַי pr.n. see אִתַּי.
