אַי ʼay, ah'ee; perhaps from H370; where? hence how?:—how, what, whence, where, whether, which (way).
STRONGS H335:
[אַי] (أَىًّ, አይ፡ in Syriac in compounds as NfkyAf how ? WSG 120-2; compare Assyrian aiu, who? what?).
† 1. interrogative adverb where?
a. so with suffix אַיֶּ֫כָּה [a verbal form, see Sta§ 355 b. 3] Genesis 3:9; אַיּוֺ Exodus 2:20, poetry where is he? = he is nowhere Job 14:10; Job 20:7 (Jeremiah 37:19 read Qr אַיֵּה); אַיָּם Nahum 3:17 (in indirect question) and the place thereof is not known, אַיָּם where they are. Idiomatically, with the suffix anticipating the noun to which it refers (Ew§ 309 c, compare DrSm. i. 21, 14) 2 Kings 19:13 אַיּוֺ מֶלֶח־חֲמָת where is he, the king of Hamath? (|| Isaiah 37:13 אַיֵּה) Isaiah 19:12; Micah 7:10. When used alone, or with other adverbs (see below), it is contracted to אֵי Genesis 4:9; Deuteronomy 32:37; 1 Samuel 26:16; Proverbs 31:4 Qr. (The more usual form is אַיֵּה.)
b. strengthened by the enclitic זֶה (see זֶה, 4 אֵי־זֶה 15 where, then ? (never of a person, except Esther 7:5 (late), & only once 1 Kings 22:24 [but see 2 Chronicles 18:23] with a verb) Isaiah 50:1; Isaiah 66:1 (twice in verse); Jeremiah 6:16, in indirect question 1 Samuel 9:18; in the phrase ⬩⬩⬩אֵי־זֶה הַדֶּרֶח where is the way (that)... ? † 1 Kings 13:12; 2 Kings 3:8; 2 Chronicles 18:23; Job 38:19a Job 38:24.
2. prefixed to other adverbs or pronouns, אֵי imparts to them an interrogative force: thus
a. אֵי־זֶה which (of two or more)? only Ecclesiastes 2:3; Ecclesiastes 11:6 (late), in indirect question
b.אֵי־מִזֶּה whence ? (מִזֶּה = hence; see below זֶה) Genesis 16:8 אֵי־מִזֶּה בָאתְ 1 Samuel 30:13; 2 Samuel 1:3, 13; Job 2:2; in indirect question Judges 13:6; 1 Samuel 25:11; with substantive annexed 2 Samuel 15:2 אֵי־מִזֶּה עִיר אַתָּה literally whence, as regards city, art thou ? Jonah 1:8.
c.אֵי־לָזֹאת Jeremiah 5:7 upon what ground ? (Vulgate super quo? how? With other adverbs, אֵי coalesces into one word, see אֵיכָה, אֵיכָכָה, אֵיפֹה.
