Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אָמָה pl. אֲמָהוֹת (by insertion of the letter ה, comp. Ch. אֲבָהָן and Lehrg. p. 530), f. a handmaid, female slave; אֲמָֽתְךָ thy handmaid (for I), used even by a free woman when speaking to her superiors, Judges 19:9; 1 Samuel 1:11, 16 1 Samuel 1:16, 25:24, seq.; 2 Samuel 14:15 (comp. אָדֹון). בֶּן־אָמָה “son of a handmaid,” i.e. a slave, Exodus 23:12; Psalms 116:16. (Hence is derived the Arab. verb أَمَا to be a handmaid. Utterly unworthy of attention is the idea that אָמָה handmaid, is derived from the root אָמַהּ, أَمَهَ inito pacto indixit.)
