αμα

Abarim Publications' online Biblical Greek Dictionary

αμα

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

Our word occurs 10 times on its own in the New Testament, see full concordance, is part of an extensive list of compound words, and comes with a few direct derivations:

  • The verb αμαω (amao), meaning to gather or collect (James 5:4 only).
  • Together with the adjective πας (pas), meaning all or whole: the adjective απας (hapas), meaning the whole together; all of it considered universally. This word occurs 39 times; see full concordance.
