αμα

The adverb and preposition αμα (hama) means together, together with, and mostly expresses simultaneity: at the same time. It often parallels one event with another (they went as he did; it happened at dawn).

Our word is part of an extensive list of compound words, but it also comes with a few direct derivations:

  • The verb αμαω (amao), meaning to gather or collect (James 5:4 only).
  • Together with πας (pas), meaning all or whole: the adjective απας (hapas), meaning the whole together; all of it considered universally (Matthew 6:32, Acts 2:11, Timothy 1:16).
