STRONGS H3644: Abbreviations
כְּמוֺ adverb and
conjunction like, as, when (literally the like of what (namely)..., a pleonastic form of כְּ (see מוֺ), and, like it, properly a substantive: compare Aramaic כְּמָא like Psalm 78:68 Levy, usually כְּמָא דְּ like as; Axm$bAf (i.e. Axm $ KAf) like what, like, usually followed by D like as; Samaritan EMK; Arabic كَمَا Ethiopic ከመ፡ kama, like as, Di Gr§ 63 a Sabean כמו ZMG 1883, 394) — used
1. (56 times) as an independent word (except Genesis 19:15; Nehemiah 9:11, only in poetry);
2. as an equivalent for כְּ before suffixes, always before light ones, and occasionally before heavy ones (see כְּ at the beginning): —
a. adverb, as poetic synonym of כְּ, like, as, Exodus 15:5 they went down כמואֿבן like a stone (hence in prose Nehemiah 9:11), Nehemiah 9:8 (Psalm 78:13), Isaiah 30:22; Isaiah 51:6 (see כֵּן), Isaiah 26:17 כְּמוֺ חָרָח תַּקְרִיב לָלֶרֶת (see כְּ 1c (2), on the construct: so Isaiah 41:25; Psalm 58:5,8a,9), Isaiah 26:18 we have brought forth the like of, as it were, wind, Jeremiah 13:21; Jeremiah 15:18; Jeremiah 50:26; Ezekiel 16:57 (כמו עת as at the time of: see כְּ Note), Hosea 7:4; Hosea 8:12; Hosea 13:7; Habakkuk 3:14 (as it were), Zechariah 9:15; Zechariah 10:2,7 (as with wine: see ib.) Elsewhere chiefly in Psalms (19 times) and Job (11 times), as Psalm 29:6; Psalm 61:7; Psalm 63:6; Psalm 78:69; Psalm 79:5; Psalm 88:6; Psalm 90:9; Job 6:15; Job 10:22 (twice in verse); Job 12:3 כמו אלה the like of these things, Job 14:9; Songs 6:10; Songs 7:2; Lamentations 4:6 כמו רגע (in prose כרגע). Repeated, like כְּ⬩⬩⬩כְּ, Psalm 58:10; and answered by כֵּן Isaiah 26:17. — Psalm 58:8b כמו יתמוללו, as it were is against usage of כמו (with a verb), and yields a lame sense: read perhaps ית׳ [חָצִיר] כמו (Lag Che); Psalm 73:15 if I said, אֲסַמְּרָה כְמ֑וֺ, the text is untranslateable, the rendering thus for כמו being indefensible: probably הֵנָּה has dropped out before the following ׃הִנֵּה for כְּמוֺ הֵנָּה the like of these things, compare Job 23:14 כָּהֵנָּה, and Job 12:3 above
b. conjunction = כַּאֲשֶׁר:
(α) of time, once, Genesis 19:15 כְּמוֺ עָלָה הַשַּׁחַר when the dawn arose;
(β) of mode, according as, Zechariah 10:8 וְרָבוּ כְּמוֺ רָבוּ Proverbs 23:7 (answered by כֵּן). — For
2. (before suffixes), see עכּ.
