STRONGS H2088: Abbreviations
זֶה demonstrative pronoun and adverb; feminine H2063 זֹאת, once זֹאתָה, Jeremiah 26:6 Kt (also זֹה and זוֺ, which see); common זוּ (which see): this, here (the element ז = ذ = D is widely diffused in the Semitic languages, as a demonstrative particle, often acquiring, like English that, German der, die, das, the force of a relative. Thus
a. Phoenician זֶ this (e.g. קבר ז this grave), also sometimes זן, feminine זא, comm. אז (see CIS I. i. 1:4; 1:5; 1:6; 1:12; 44:1; 88:2 etc.); Aramaic of Nineveh, Babylon, Têma, Egypt, זי as mark of the genitive [literally that of] (CIS II. i. 1, 2, 3, 4, etc., 65, 69-71, 113, 114, 141, 142, etc.), זנה this (ib. 113:22; 145 C2), feminine זא 113:15; 145 B5; Aramaic of Zinjirli ז, זן, זנה this, זי which (DHMSendsch. 56); Ethiopic ዝ፡ ze, this, feminine ዛ፡ , ዘ፡ za, who (masculine), also (like זִי, and דִּי, דְּ [see below]) in common use as a mark of the genitive;
b. Arabic ذَا this, feminine ذِی, ذُو (genitive ذِی, accusative ذَا, feminine ذَاتُ), possessor of (literally that of..., i.e. one who owns), or in the Tayyite dialect, who, which: from ذَا, with ھَا lo! prefixed, ھَاذَا this, feminine ھَذِہِ, with the pronominal element -k affixed, ذَاكَ = this: with 'al (= the article) + a demonstrative element la prefixed, اَلٌذِى who, which (in origin = Hebrew הַלָּזֶה this, which see); Sabean דֿן this, feminine דֿת, דֿ who, which, feminine דֿת (PräZMG. 1872, 419, DHMZMG. 1883, 338 f., alsoEpigr.

Alike in Hebrew and the other dialects, the corresponding plural is derived from a different source: Hebrew אֵלָּה, Phoenician אל, Ethiopic 'ellū, 'ellā, these, 'ella, who, Arabic أُولَى, these, أُولُوا, أُولِى owners of, Sabean אלן these, אל, אלי who, which, Aramaic אִלֵּין, with הא lo! prefixed, Nyelxh, Samaritan NJLA, Mandean עלין. Only the Arabic آلَّذِى forms its own plural اَلَّذِينَ. V. further WSG 107 ff.) —
1. standing alone:
a. this one, sometimes contemptuously (especially with אֵת), [H2063 Genesis 2:23] לָזֹאת יִקָּרֵא אִשָּׁה כִּי מֵאִישׁ לֻקֳּחָהזּֿאֹת, Genesis 5:29 זֶה יְנַחֲמֵנוּ ֗֗֗, [H2063 Genesis 12:12]; Genesis 38:28; Exodus 10:7 עַד מָתַי יִהְיֶה זֶה לָנוּ לְמוֺקֵשׁ, 1 Samuel 10:27 מַה יּוֺשִׁיעֵנוּ זֶה how shall this man save us ? 1 Samuel 16:8, 9; 1 Samuel 21:16 that ye have brought אֶתזֶֿה this fellow to play the madman against me ? 1 Samuel 25:21 in vain have I kept אֶתכָּֿלאֲֿשֶׁר לָזֶה all that this fellow hath etc. [H2063 2 Samuel 13:17] אֶתזֹֿאת, 1 Kings 22:27 אֶתזֶֿה, Micah 5:4 [Micah 5:5]; Isaiah 66:2; as a genitive, [H2063 Genesis 29:27, 28]; 1 Kings 21:2; with a collective force Leviticus 11:4, 9 (= Deuteronomy 14:7, 9), Leviticus 11:21; Leviticus 11:29; Judges 20:16, 17 (כָּלזֶֿה), Job 19:19 (with a plural verb). In a purely neuter sense (of an act, event, announcement, etc.) זאת is most common, as with עשׂה to do this
[H2063 Genesis 3:14; 20:5, 6; 45:19] and often, שׁמעו זאת [H2063 Amos 8:4; Isaiah 47:8; 48:1, 16; 51:21] and elsewhere; [H2063 Genesis 41:39; Exodus 17:14; Deuteronomy 32:6; Judges 7:14; 21:3] הָֽיְתָה זֹאת⬩⬩⬩לָמָה (compare Job 1:13; Psalm 118:23) [H2063 1 Kings 11:39; 2 Samuel 7:19; 2 Kings 3:18] +; אֵין זֹאת [H2063 1 Samuel 20:2b] compare [H2063 Amos 2:11] rarely so with אֶתֿ [H2063 Joshua 22:24; Jeremiah 9:11 [Jeremiah 9:12]; Psalm 92:7 [Psalm 92:6]]; as an accusative of limitation, as regards this, in this, [H2063 Ezekiel 20:27; 36:37; Job 19:26] (si vera lectio), [H2063 Job 33:12] in this thou art not just; (late) אַחֲרֵי זֹאת † [H2063 Job 42:16; Ezra 9:10], כלזֿאת א׳ [H2063 2 Chronicles 21:18; 35:20]; pointing forward to a following clause, [H2063 Genesis 42:18; 43:11; Numbers 8:24; 14:35; Isaiah 56:2; Job 10:13] etc.; [H2063 Exodus 9:16; 1 Samuel 25:31; Isaiah 1:12] מִי דִקֵּשׁ זאת מִיֶּדְכֶם רְמֹס חֲצֵרָֽי׃; to one introduced by כִּי [H2063 2 Samuel 19:22 [2 Samuel 19:21]; Psalm 102:19 [Psalm 102:18]; Psalm 119:50, 56]
(see also בְּזֹאת 6 b β): but זֶה also sometimes occurs similarly Exodus 13:8; Proverbs 24:12; Job 15:17; Nehemiah 2:2; Ecclesiastes 1:17; Ecclesiastes 2:15 גם זה הבל (so Ecclesiastes 2:19; Ecclesiastes 2:21; Ecclesiastes 2:23 +), Ecclesiastes 7:18 (twice in verse); of a concrete object, Exodus 30:31; 2 Kings 4:43 מָה אֶתֵּן זֶה לִפְנֵי מֵאָה אִישׁ : in late Hebrew, Nehemiah 13:6 בְּכָלזֶֿה during all this, 2 Chronicles 32:9 אַחַר זֶה; pointing forwards Lamentations 5:17f, to כִּי Psalm 56:10 [Psalm 56:9]; Jeremiah 22:21. (See also below, 6 g.)
b. repeated זֶה ֗֗֗ זֶה, this... that, the one... the other or (if indefinite) another, [H2063 Genesis 29:27] (זֹאת), Exodus 14:20 וְלֹא קָרַב זֶה אֶל זֶה, 1 Kings 3:23; 1 Kings 22:20; Isaiah 6:3; Isaiah 44:5 (3 times), Psalm 75:8 יָרִים וְזֶה יַשְׁפִּיל זֶה, Job 1:16-18; Job 21:23, 25 +.
2. In apposition to a substantive:
a. preceding it (rare) Exodus 32:1, 23 זֶה משֶׁה, Judges 5:5 (= Psalm 68:9 [Psalm 68:8]) זֶה סִינַי this Sinai, Joshua 9:12 זֶה לַחְמֵנוּ this our bread, 1 Kings 14:14; [H2063 2 Kings 6:33]; Isaiah 23:13 זֶה הָעָם, Psalm 34:7 [Psalm 34:6]; Psalm 49:14 [Psalm 49:13]; Psalm 104:25 זה הים גדול וג׳ this sea there is great and broad, Psalm 118:20; [H2063 Cant 7:8 [Cant 7:7]]; Ezra 3:12. (compare זוּ [H2098 Habakkuk 1:11].)
b. following it: —
(α) when the substantive is determined by a pronominal affix, [H2063 Genesis 24:8] שְׁבוּעָתִי זֹאת, this my oath, Deuteronomy 5:16 [Deuteronomy 5:29] O that לְבָבָם זֶה this their heart (their present temper) might continue always! Deuteronomy 21:20; Joshua 2:14, 20 דְּבָרֵנוּ זֶה, Judges 6:14 go בְּכֹחֲךָ זֶה in this thy strength, Daniel 10:17; [H2063 2 Chronicles 24:18]. (compare אֵלֶּה, a.) Rarely when it is undetermined, 2 Kings 1:2 חֳלִי זֶה (so 2 Kings 8:8, 2 Kings 8:9), [H2063 Psalm 80:15 [Psalm 80:14]]
(β) with the article, הַזֶּה, הַזּאֹת, after a substantive determined also by the article, Genesis 7:1 בַּדּוֺר הַזֶּה, Genesis 7:13 הַיּוֺם הַזֶּה, [H2063 Genesis 12:7] הָאָרֶץ הַזּאֹת, [H2063 Genesis 15:7]; Genesis 17:21, 23; Deuteronomy 4:6 הגוי הגדול הזה, and continually. Not however after a proper name, except such as are construed with the article, as הַיַּרְדֵּן הַזֶּה Genesis 32:11 [Genesis 32:10]; Deuteronomy 3:27; Deuteronomy 31:2; Joshua 1:2, 11; Joshua 4:22, הַלְּבָנוֺן הַזֶּה Joshua 1:4, compare Numbers 27:12 = Deuteronomy 32:49 (2 Kings 5:20 הַזֶּה belongs to הָאֲרַמִּי): and hardly ever (2 Chronicles 1:10 after a noun with a pronominal affix (Joshua 2:17 מִשְּׁבֻעָתֵךְ הַזֶּה the gender of הזה shews that the text is in error: see Dr§ 209 Obs.).
3. More often as predicate, as 1 Samuel 24:17 [1 Samuel 24:16] הֲקוֺלְךָ זֶה, 2 Kings 3:23 דָּם זֶה this is blood, [H2063 2 Kings 9:37] אִיזָֽבֶל׃ זֹאת, [H2063 Ezekiel 5:5] etc.; הֲזֶה Isaiah 14:16, הֲזֹאת [H2063 Isaiah 23:7; Lamentations 2:15]; often at the beginning or close of enumerations (especially P), descriptions, injunctions, etc., as Genesis 5:1 זה ספר this is the book..., [H2063 Genesis 9:12] זֹאת אוֺת הַבְּרִית, [H2063 Genesis 17:10]; Genesis 20:13 זֶה חַסְדֵּךְ אֲשֶׁר תַּעֲשִׂי עִמָּדִי, [H2063 Leviticus 6:2 [Leviticus 6:9]]; Leviticus 6:13 [Leviticus 6:20]; [H2063 Leviticus 6:18 [Leviticus 6:25]; Leviticus 7:1, 11; Deuteronomy 6:1; 33:1; Joshua 13:2]; Job 27:13; Isaiah 58:6 etc.; זה הדבר אשׁר ֗֗֗ Exodus 16:16; Exodus 35:4; Joshua 5:4; Judges 20:9; Judges 21:11; Isaiah 27:22; Jeremiah 38:21 +, compare זה אשׁר ֗֗֗ this is what (or how)... Genesis 6:15; Exodus 29:38; Jeremiah 33:16; זֶה לְךָ הָאוֺת Exodus 3:12; 1 Samuel 2:34 +; at the end, [H2063 Leviticus 7:37; 11:46; 13:50 [13:59]; Numbers 5:21 [5:29]]; Numbers 7:17, 23 etc., [H2063 Joshua 19:8, 16, 23 etc., Isaiah 14:26; 16:13] (זֶה הַדָּבָר אֲשֶׁר ֗֗֗), Isaiah 17:14; [H2063 Isaiah 54:17]; Jeremiah 13:25; [H2063 Psalm 109:20]; Songs 5:16 (twice in verse); [H2063 Job 5:27], in the latter case sometimes with the force of such (i.e. such as has been described), Job 18:21; Job 20:29 (compare אֵלֶּה [H428 Psalm 73:12]), Psalm 24:6; Psalm 48:15 such (= such a one) is God, our God, for ever (Hi De) [H2063 Zephaniah 2:15]; compare Job 14:3 אַףעַֿלזֶֿה upon one such as this (Job 14:1-2) dost thou open thy eyes?
4. It is attached enclitically, almost as an adverb, to certain words, especially interrogative pronouns, to impart, in a manner often not reproducible in English idiom, directness and force, bringing the question or statement made into close relation with the speaker. (Contrast from this point of view מי זה and מי הוא : see הוא 4b. Thus
a. אֵיזֶֿה 15 where, then ? Job 28:12 אֵיזֶֿה מְקוֺם בִּינָה, Job 28:20; Job 38:19b (see other examples below אַי 1b).
b. מִיזֶֿה, 1 Samuel 17:55, 56 בֶּןמִֿיזֶֿ֖ה הָעָֽלֶם׃ the son of whom, here, is the lad ? Jeremiah 49:19 (= Jeremiah 50:44) וּמִי זֶה רֹעֶה אֲשֶׁר וג׳ and who (emphatic) is the shepherd that etc., Lamentations 3:37; Psalm 24:8 Who is the king of glory ? (for which in Psalm 24:10 the stronger מִי הוּא זֶה is said: so Jeremiah 30:21; Esther 7:5), Psalm 25:12. Elsewhere, the rendering Who is this... is admissible: Isaiah 63:1; Jeremiah 46:7; Job 38:2; Job 42:3; compare מִיזֹֿאת [H2063 Songs 3:6; 6:10; 8:5].
c. מַהזֶֿה how, now ? Genesis 27:20; Judges 18:24 וּמַהזֶּֿה תּאֹמְרוּ אֵלַי and how, now, do ye say to me... ? 1 Kings 21:5; 2 Kings 1:5; what, now ? (τίποτε;) 1 Samuel 10:11 מַהזֶּֿה הָיָה לְבֶןקִֿישׁ; עַלמַֿהאזֶּה for what ? Nehemiah 2:4: contracted into מַזֶּה Exodus 4:2. (compare Aramaic מָדֵין why ? Nyedxm used as a conjunction therefore, e.g. 2 Samuel 18:22 Syriac Version, PS2013: both formed similarly.)
d. מַהזּֿאֹת in the phrase (עֲשִׂיתֶם, עָשִׂית) מַהזּֿאֹת עָשִׂיתָ [H2063 Genesis 3:13; 12:18; 26:10; 29:25; 42:28; Exodus 14:11; Judges 2:2; 15:11] +. Either What, now, hast thou (have ye) done ? (Fl De) or what is this (that) thou hast (ye have) done ? (The Arabic grammarians dispute on the precise construction of the corresponding phrase in Arabic هَا ذَا مَنَعْتَ; De[H2063 Genesis 3:13] (ed. 4), and especially FlKl Schr. i. 356 Lanep. 948.)
e. לָמֳּה־זֶּה wherefore, now ? Genesis 18:13; Genesis 25:22; Genesis 32:30 [Genesis 32:29]; Exodus 5:22; Numbers 11:20 plus often Arabic لِمَا ذَا.
f. הַאַתָּה זֶה2 Samuel 2:20 האתה זה עשׂהאל Art thou Asahel ? 1 Kings 18:7, 17, without הֲ Genesis 27:24; in an indirect question Genesis 27:21.
g. הִנֵּה זֶה behold, here...1 Kings 19:5 (in narrative), Isaiah 21:9; Songs 2:8, 9. compare Numbers 13:17 (unusual) עֲלוּ זֶה בַּנֶּגֶבּ go up here in the South.
h. עַתָּה זֶה, † 1 Kings 17:24 עַתָּה זֶה יָדַעְתִּי now I know that..., 2 Kings 5:22 just now. Also
i. prefixed to expressions denoting a period of time: Genesis 27:36 he hath supplanted me זֶה פַעֲמַיִם now two times (so Genesis 43:10), Genesis 31:38 now, already twenty years, Genesis 31:41 (זֶהלִּֿי ֗֗֗, Genesis 45:6; Numbers 14:22 now ten times, Numbers 22:28, 32 זֶה שָׁלשׁ רְגָלִים, Deuteronomy 8:2, 4; Joshua 22:3 זֶה יָמִים רַבִּים, 2 Samuel 14:2 +; Zechariah 7:3 זֶה כַּמָּה שָׁנִים already how many years! compare Ruth 2:7.
5. In poetry, as a relative pronoun (rare: but see also זוֺ, זוּ): Psalm 74:2 the hill of Zion זה שׁכנת בּוֺ wherein thou dwellest, Psalm 78:54; Psalm 104:8 אלמְֿקום זה to the place (stative construct Ges§ 130. 3) which... Psalm 104:26; Proverbs 23:22; Isaiah 25:9; = that which Job 15:17, those who Job 19:19 (so once, Exodus 13:8, even in prose). In some of the passages cited the punctuators, by coupling זה with the preceding substantive, and separating it from what follows by a disj. accent (as הַר־וֶ֫ה), appear not to have recognised its relative sense, but to have construed, 'this mountain, (which) thy right hand,' etc.
6. With prefixes (in special senses): —
a. בָּזֶה 15 in this (place), here, Genesis 38:21, 22; Exodus 24:14; Numbers 23:1 (twice in verse); 1 Samuel 1:26; 1 Samuel 9:11 +; of time, then, † Esther 2:13. Once בַּזֶה 1 Samuel 21:10 [1 Samuel 21:9].
b. בְּזֹאת
(α) with this = on these conditions, [H2063 Genesis 34:15, 22; 1 Samuel 11:2; Isaiah 27:9]; = herewith, thus provided [H2063 Leviticus 16:3].
(β) by or through this (especially with יָדַע), [H2063 Genesis 42:15, 33; Exodus 7:17; Numbers 16:28; Joshua 3:10; Psalm 41:12 [Psalm 41:11]]; so בָּזֹאת [H2063 Malachi 3:10].
(γ) in spite of this, [H2063 Leviticus 26:27; Psalm 27:3], for which the fuller בְּכָלזֹֿאת occurs, [H2063 Isaiah 5:25; 9:11 [9:12]; 9:16 [9:17]; 9:20 [9:21]; 10:4; Psalm 78:32; Jeremiah 3:10; Hosea 7:10].
(δ) בָּזֹאת for this cause (late style) [H2063 1 Chronicles 27:24; 2 Chronicles 19:2]; in this matter [H2063 2 Chronicles 20:17];
c. כָּזֶה
(α) † Genesis 41:38 הֲנִמְצָא כָזֶה אִישׁ אשׁר ֗֗֗, Isaiah 56:12; Isaiah 58:5; Jeremiah 5:9 גּוֺי אֲשֶׁר כָּזֶה (so Jeremiah 5:29; Jeremiah 9:8 [Jeremiah 9:9]).
(β) כָּזֹה וְכָזֶה thus and thus, † Judges 18:4; 2 Samuel 11:25; 1 Kings 14:5.
d. כְּזֹאת the like of this = as follows, † [H2063 Genesis 45:23]; כָּזֹאת the like of this = things such as these [H2063 Judges 13:23] (with השׁמיע), [H2063 Judges 15:7; 19:30] לא נראתה כָּזֹאת, [H2063 1 Samuel 4:7 (compare Jeremiah 2:10; 2 Chronicles 30:26), 2 Samuel 14:13] (with חשׁב), [H2063 Isaiah 66:8] (with שׁמע), [H2063 Ezra 7:27]; = accordingly, to that effect (with דִּבֶּר) [H2063 2 Chronicles 34:22; = in like manner Judges 8:8; = thus (as has been described) 1 Kings 7:37; 1 Chronicles 29:14; 2 Chronicles 31:20; 32:15]: כָּזֹאת וְכָזֹאת thus and thus † [H2063 Joshua 7:20; 2 Samuel 17:15 (twice in verse); 2 Kings 5:4; 9:12].
e. מִזֶּה from here, hence Genesis 37:17; Genesis 42:15; Genesis 50:25; Exodus 11:1 (twice in verse); Exodus 13:3; Deuteronomy 9:12 + often: מִוֶּה ֗֗֗ מִוֶּה on one side... on the other side Exodus 17:12 מזה אחד ומזה אחד, Exodus 25:19; Exodus 26:13; Exodus 32:15 מזה ומזה הם כתובים, Numbers 22:24; 1 Samuel 14:4; 1 Kings 10:19, 20; Zechariah 5:3 +; מִוֶּה וּמִזֶּה לְ on one side and on the other side of... Exodus 38:15; Joshua 8:33; Ezekiel 45:7; Ezekiel 48:21.
f. עַל זֶה on this account (rare), Lamentations 5:17 (pointing forwards), Esther 6:3. So עַל זֹאת [H2063 Amos 8:8; Micah 1:8; Jeremiah 2:12 (Job 17:8) Jeremiah 4:8, 28; Psalm 32:6]; in late prose [H2063 Ezra 8:23; 9:15; 10:2; Nehemiah 13:14; 2 Chronicles 16:9, 10; 29:9; 32:20].
g. עִם זֶה in spite of thisNehemiah 5:18. — On אֵי זֶה which ? אֵי מִזֶּה whence ? אֵי לָזֹאת how ? see below אַי 2; and on הַלָּז, הַלָּזֶה, הַלֵּזוּ.
Note.זֶה in [H7716 1 Samuel 17:34] (in many editions) is a typographical error (not a Kt) of Jacob b. Chayim's Rabbinic Bible of 1525 for שׂה sheep, which has been perpetuated hence in other subsequent editions. The reading of MSS. and of the best ancient editions is שֶׂה (compare de RossiVar. Lect. ii. 151).
