STRONGS H1768: Abbreviations

Biblical Aramaic

דִּי particle of relation, who, which, that, used also as mark of genitive and conjunction that, because (Aramaic of Nineveh, Babylonian, Zinjirli, Nerab, Cilicia, Têma, Egypt, ןי (Lzb267. 446 RES361 S-CPap. A 2 +); Nabataean, Palmyrene די; Targum דְּ (except in compounds, as דִּילִי mine, דִּילֵיהּ his); Samaritan D; Syriac D; Ethiopic ዘ፡ za: of same origin as Arabic ذُو possessor of [compare below Biblical Hebrew זֶה]. Properly a demonstrative that [compare זֶה; in Ethiopic ze is 'this', za 'which']; but this being referred by usage to something preceding becomes equivalent to the relative who, which, used, however, more widely than Hebrew אֲשֶׁר); —
1. as relative who, which (construed like אֲשֶׁר):
a. Jeremiah 10:11; Daniel 2:11 דִּי מְדָֽרְהוֺן whose dwelling, Daniel 2:24 דִּי מַנִּי מַלְבָּא whom the king had appointed, Daniel 2:26 דִּי שְׁמֵהּ בּ׳ whose name was B., Daniel 4:5; Daniel 5:12, 23, etc.; = that which Daniel 2:23; = him that Ezra 7:25; Ezra 6:15; Daniel 7:17 דִּת אִנוּן אַרְבַּע which are four (see אִנּוּן). Following pronoun of 2nd person (compare אֲשֶׁר 3), Daniel 2:37 thou, O king..., יְהַב לָח⬩⬩⬩דִּי to whom... hath given, Daniel 4:19; Daniel 4:6 as to whom I know, etc. (compare אֲשֶׁר 4d end). Sq. תַּמָּה = where Ezra 6:1, so דִּי alone Ezra 6:3; Daniel 2:38; of time, בְּעִדָּנָא דִּי at the time when, etc., Daniel 3:5, 15. With the predicate an infinitive with לְ, Daniel 6:9 כְּתָבָא דִּי לָא לְהַשְׁנָיָה which is not to be changed, Ezra 6:8; a place- or other determination, Daniel 3:20 valiant men בְחֵילֵהּ that were in his army, Daniel 5:2 הֵיכְלָא דִּי בִירוּשְׁלֵב, Daniel 7:20; Ezra 4:24; Ezra 5:6; Ezra 6:2, 6; compare Daniel 2:25; Daniel 5:13; Daniel 7:7; Ezra 7:23. דִּי לָא = without, Ezra 6:9; Ezra 7:22 (so דְּלָא Targum Genesis 15:2; Exodus 21:11); compare Daniel 2:34, 45.
b. מָן דִּי, מָה דִּי (compare in late Hebrew מַה־שֶּׁ׳, מַה 1e b) whoever, whatever, so † Daniel 3:6, 11 מָֽן־דִּי־לָא יִפֵּל whoever does not fall down, Daniel 4:14 לְמָן דִּי יִצְבֵּא to whomsoever he willeth, Daniel 4:22; Daniel 4:29; Daniel 5:21; מָה דִי whatever (or simply what), † Daniel 2:28 מָה דִּי לֶהֱוֵא what will be, Daniel 2:29; Daniel 2:29; Daniel 2:45; Ezra 6:8; Ezra 7:18. — compare K§ 103.
2. as mark of the genitive, Daniel 2:15 שׁליטא די מלכא properly the captain, that of the king = the king's captain (a genuine Aramaic idiom: so Targum דְּ, Syriac D constantly), Daniel 2:19; Daniel 2:25; Daniel 2:49 + often: the substantive in such cases may be either in the emphatic state (determined), as ll. cc. Ezra 4:15; Ezra 5:2, etc., or in the absolute state (undetermined), Daniel 5:5; Daniel 7:4, 9, 10 נְהַר דִּי נוּר; or it may have a pleonastic suffix, Daniel 2:20 שְׁמֵהּ דִּי אֱלָהָא literally his name, that of God = God's name, Daniel 2:44; Daniel 3:8, 25, 26; Daniel 4:23, etc. (so also Targum Syriac). To circumscribe an adjective, especially in specification of the material: Daniel 2:38 thou art רֵאשָׁה דִּי דַהֲבָא the head of gold, Daniel 2:39; Daniel 3:1; Daniel 5:7, 16; Ezra 5:14; Ezra 6:4 +; as predicate Daniel 2:32 רֵאשֵׁהּ דִּי־דְב טָב his head (was) of fine gold, Daniel 2:33; Daniel 7:19; with a pronoun Daniel 2:20 wisdom and might דּי־לֵהּ הִיא are his; compare Daniel 6:27 וּמַלְכוּתֵהּ דִּי־לָא תִתְחַבַּל his kingdom (is one) which shall not be destroyed, Daniel 7:14. — See further K§ 81.
3. as conjunction (compare אֲשֶׁר 8):
a. that (quod), after verbs of knowing, Daniel 2:8, 9, seeing Daniel 2:45; Daniel 3:27, hearing Daniel 5:14, etc.; introducing the subject of a sentence,... דִּיspan...יְדִיצַ Daniel 3:18; Ezra 4:13; Daniel 2:47 ⬩⬩⬩מִן־קְשֹׁט דִּי True is it that... (compare אָמְנָם כִּי Job 12:2).
b. = in that, inasmuch as, whereas: Daniel 2:41 and whereas (דִּי) thou sawest, etc.... it shall be a divided kingdom, Daniel 2:43; Daniel 4:20; Daniel 4:23; as a connecting link = seeing that, because, for (compare אֲשֶׁר 8c) Daniel 2:9, 20b; Daniel 2:23b; Daniel 2:47b; Daniel 4:15; Daniel 6:24b.
c. that (ut), after verbs of asking Daniel 2:16, commanding Daniel 3:10, 29, expressing a purpose Daniel 4:3; Daniel 5:15; Ezra 4:15; Ezra 6:10 +; דִּי לָא that not (ne) Daniel 2:18; Daniel 3:28; Daniel 6:18 (on דִּי לְמָה lest Ezra 7:23, see מה).
d. prefixed to direct narr. (like כִּי 1b, and sometimes אֲשֶׁר 8a γ, and ὅτι recitativum), Daniel 2:25 and said thus unto him דִּיהַֿשְׁכַּחַת (that) I have found, etc., Daniel 5:7; Daniel 6:6; Daniel 6:14.
4. with prepositions and other prefixes:
a. כּֽדִי (like Hebrew כַּאֲשֶׁר; so Egyptian Aramaic כזי, Palmyrene, Nabataean כדי, Lzb293 SACG1 62, 63 Cooke369b RES:361; Targum כַּד, Syriac Db);
a. according as, Daniel 2:43;
b. so soon as, when, Daniel 3:7; Daniel 5:20; Daniel 6:11; Daniel 6:15.
b. מִןדִּֿי :
a. because that, Daniel 3:22; Ezra 5:12 (compare מֵאֲשֶׁר Isaiah 43:4);
b. from (the time) that, after (ex quo), Daniel 4:23; Ezra 4:23.
c. עַד דִּי until, Daniel 2:9, 34; Daniel 4:30; Daniel 7:22; = ere that Daniel 6:25.
d. עַל דִּי Daniel 3:19 is not a conjunction, but means above that which...
e. for עַל דִּבְרַת דִּי and כָּל־קְָבֵל דִּי see [דִּבְרָה] and קֳבֵל.
