STRONGS H3966:
מְאֹד noun masculine muchness, force, abundance, exceedingly (compare Assyrian mu'du, abundance, HomZMG 1878, 711 ('treasures ana mu'di, in abundance') DlHWB 399): —
1. force, might, Deuteronomy 6:5 וּבְכָלמְֿאֹדֶ֑ךָ and with all thy might; hence 2 Kings 23:25.
2. in different idioms (298 times) to express the idea of exceedingly, greatly, very (whether of magnitude or degree):
a. (so mostly) as adverb accusative, qualifying both adjectives and obs., Genesis 1:31 טוֺב מְאֹד good exceedingly, Genesis 4:5 וַיִּחַד לְקַיִן מְאֹד and Cain was wroth exceedingly, Genesis 7:18 מְאֹד וַיִּרְבּוּ הַמַּיִם וַיִּגְבְּרוּ, Genesis 12:14; Genesis 13:2 בַּמִּקְנֶה מְאֹד כָּבֵד וְאַבְרָם, Genesis 13:13 מאד חַטָּאִים לי׳, Genesis 18:20; Genesis 19:3, 9; Genesis 21:11; Genesis 24:16, 35, + often, Psalm 46:2 נִמְצָא מְאֹד עֶזְרָה בְצָרוֺת as a help in troubles, to be found (= present) exceedingly; with an infinitive Isaiah 47:9 בְּעָצְמַת חֲבָרַיִח מְאֹד despite of thy spells being very numerous, Joshua 9:13 מֵרֹב הַדֶּרֶךְ מְאֹד, 1 Kings 7:47; הַרְבֵּה מְאֹד Genesis 15:1; Genesis 41:49; Deuteronomy 3:5 +, for which in the later language is found לָרֹב מְאֹד Zechariah 14:14; 2 Chronicles 4:18; 9:9 (in 1 Kings 10:10 הַרְבֵּה מְאֹד); 2 Chronicles 24:24; 30:13, and even לְהַרְבֵּה מְאֹד 2 Chronicles 11:12; 16:8. מְאֹד is not usually separated from the word it qualifies by more than one or two words (as Genesis 20:8 האנשׁים מאד וייראו, Numbers 11:10 מאד ויחר אף י׳); see, however, Deuteronomy 30:14; Judges 12:2; 2 Samuel 12:5; 1 Kings 11:19; Psalm 31:12.
