Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 מֶּןֿ133 (always with Makkeph ** except Genesis 38:23; Genesis 44:34; Deuteronomy 7:25; Deuteronomy 32:27 [not Gi], Isaiah 27:3; Proverbs 25:8: MandelkernConc. under the word.)

conjunction (averting, or deprecating), lest (origin dubious: Thes Kö ii. 334 from מָּנָה, properly substantive construct in accusative for the aversion of; but פָנָה is intransitive: Nö M. 474 compares the enclitic particle מּוֺן in ᵑ7, then ἄν, 'etwa,' thinking that a particle with the meaning 'es möchte etwa,' spoken in a tone of alarm, might readily acquire a deprecatory force); — lest:

1 with imperfect Genesis 3:3 ye shall not eat thereof . . . מֶּןתְּֿמֻתוּן lest ye die, Genesis 11:4 let us build a city מֶּןנָֿפוּץ lest we be scattered, Genesis 19:15,17,19; Genesis 38:23; Genesis 45: Exodus 1:10; Exodus 23:29; Exodus 23:33 etc., 2 Kings 10:23 (followed by יֵשׁ), Isaiah 6:10; Isaiah 27:3; Isaiah 28:22; Isaiah 48:5,7; Psalm 2:12; Psalm 7:3 etc.; often after הִשָׁמֶרלְֿךָ take heed to thyself Genesis 24:6; Genesis 31:24, and especially in Deuteronomy , as Deuteronomy 4:9,23; Deuteronomy 6:12; Deuteronomy 8:11 and elsewhere; after a verb of fearing Genesis 32:12, and once, even, of swearing Judges 15:12; deprecating pathetically, Genesis 44:34 how shall I go up, etc.? lest I look upon the evil that will befal my father. Once, unusually, preceding the principal clause, Proverbs 5:6 אֹרַח חַיִּים מֶּןתְּֿפַלֵּס lest she should make level the path of life, her ways are unstable, etc. (Ew Be Now; see also Toy). Note especially

a. the idiomכִּי אָמַר (אָמַרְתִּי) מֶּןֿ for he ( I) said, Lest..., implying always that some precaution has been taken to avert the dreaded contingency, Genesis 26:9 for I said, Lest I die on account of her (to obviate which, Isaac had called Rebecca his sister), Genesis 31:31; Genesis 38:11; Genesis 42:4; Exodus 13:17; Numbers 16:34; 1 Samuel 13:19; 1 Samuel 27:11 (לֵאמֹר), Psalm 38:17; with כי אמר implied Genesis 26:7; compare, with an aposiop., Genesis 3:22 and now, lest he put forth his hand, etc. (implying that measures are taken to prevent this, see Genesis 3:23): compare Tobit 8:9.

b.מֶּןֿ at the beginning of a sentence, with a dissuasive force, (Beware) lest: + Isaiah 36:18 מֶּןיַֿסִּיתאֶתְכֶם חזקיהו (beware) lest Hezekiah deceive you, Deuteronomy 29:17 (twice in verse) (followed by יֵשׁ), Jeremiah 51:46; Job 32:13; Job 36:18.

2 with Perfect, the result feared being conceived as having possibly already taken place; 2 Samuel 20:6 pursue after him, מֶּןמָֿצָא לוֺ ֗֗֗ וְהִצִּיל lest he have found him fenced cities, etc. (but the tense of והציל makes יִמְצָא probably, Dr sm Bu Kö iii. 486), 2 Kings 2:16 ׳וַיַּשְׁלִכֵהוּ וגו׳מֶּןנְֿשָׂאוֺ רוּחַ י.
