Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

תָּם m. תַּמָּה f. adj. (from the root תָּמַם) whole, upright, always in a moral sense, Job 1:1, 8:20 9:20, 21 Job 9:21, 22 Job 9:22. A peculiar use is, Genesis 25:27, וְיַעֲקֹב אִישׁ תָּם ישֵׁב אֹהָלִים “Jacob was an upright man, dwelling in tents,” where תָּם appears to indicate the milder and placid disposition of Jacob, as opposed to the more ferocious character of Esau. Neutr. abstr. integrity, Psalms 37:37.-Fem. תַּמָּתִי my perfect one, an endearing term for a beloved female, Song of Solomon 6:9.

תָּם Ch. adv. i.q. Hebr. שָׁם there, always with the addition of ה local, תַּמָּה Ezra 5:17, 6:6, 12 Ezra 6:12.
