Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֱמֶת for אֲמֵנֶת f. with suff. אֲמִתִּי, אֲמִתּוֹ.

(1) firmness, stability, perpetuity. Isaiah 39:8, שָׁלוֹם וֶאֱמֶת “peace and stability,” i.e. firm and stable peace, by ἓν διὰ δυοῖν, compare No. 2; also security. Joshua 2:12, אוֹת אֱמֶת “a token of security,” i.e. secure or certain.

(2) faithfulness, fidelity, in which any one is consistent and performs promises (Treue und Glauben). Applied to a people, Isaiah 59:14, 15 Isaiah 59:15 to a king, Psal. 45:5 to God, Psalms 30:10, 71:22 91:4. Very often joined with חֶסֶר Psalms 25:10, 40:11 57:4, 11 Psalms 57:11, 108:5 138:2 and by ἓν διὰ δυοῖν the constant and perpetual favour of God is to be understood. עָשָׂה חֶסֶד וֶאֱמֶת עִם “to shew sincere good will to any one,” Genesis 24:49, 47:29 Joshua 2:14; 2 Samuel 2:6, 15:20.

(3) probity, uprightness, integrity of mind. Exodus 18:21, אַנְשֵׁי אֱמֶת שׂנְאֵי בֶצַע “upright men, hating covetousness.” Nehemiah 7:2; Judges 9:16, 19 Judges 9:19. Opp. to רֶשַׁע Proverbs 8:7. Specially it is integrity (of a judge), justice. Psalms 19:10, “the judgments of God are upright, just;” Isaiah 16:5; Proverbs 29:14 also sincerity opp. to dissimulation, Joshua 24:14; 1 Samuel 12:24; 1 Kings 2:4; Isaiah 10:20.

(4) truth, opp. to falsehood, Genesis 42:16; Deuteronomy 22:20; 2 Samuel 7:28 אֲמָרִים אֱמֶת “words (which are) truth,” Proverbs 22:21. Applied to the word of God, Psalms 119:142 to prophecies, Jeremiah 26:15 to a servant of God, Isaiah 42:3. Hence אֱמֶת יְהֹוָה “the truth of the Lord,” often used for his true doctrine and worship, Psalms 25:5, 26:3 86:11.
