Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
אֶפֶס ʼepheç, eh'-fes; from H656; (sometimes like H6466) cessation, i.e. an end (especially of the earth); often used adverb, no further; also the ankle (in the dual), as being the extremity of the leg or foot:—ankle, but (only), end, howbeit, less than nothing, nevertheless (where), no, none (beside), not (any, -withstanding), thing of nought, save(-ing), there, uttermost part, want, without (cause).
STRONGS H657:
אָ֑פֶס אֶ֫פֶס noun masculine properly ceasing, hence
1. end, extremity, only in the poetic phrase אַפְסֵי אֶרֶץ (Psalm 59:14 הארץ א׳) ends, extreme limits, of the earth, used especially hyperbolically: Deuteronomy 33:17; 1 Samuel 2:10; Micah 5:3; Jeremiah 16:19; Psalm 2:8; Psalm 59:14; Psalm 72:8 (= Zechariah 9:10); + כָּל־ Isaiah 45:22; Isaiah 52:10b (= Psalm 98:3b) Psalm 22:28; Psalm 67:8; Proverbs 30:4.
2. Expressing non-existence:
a. as substantive. (mostly a rare poetic synonym of אַיִן): Isaiah 34:12 and all his princes יִהְיוּ אָ֑פֶס shall become nought, (Isaiah 41:29, 12 יִהְיוּ כְאַיִן וּכְאֶפֶס; Isaiah 40:17 מֵאֶפֶס וָתֹהוּ (|| כְּאַיִן) as made of nought and worthlessness are they accounted by him, [H659 Isaiah 41:24] (read פָּעָלְכָם מֵאָ֑פֶס, || מֵאַיִן see אֶפַע); Isaiah 52:4 and Asshur oppressed him בְּאֶפֶס for nought.
b. as particle of negation, prop. cessation of...! (compare ⬩⬩⬩אֵין nought of...), very rare in prose (2 Samuel 9:3), chiefly a poetic synonym of ׃אֵין Isaiah 5:8 עַד אֶפֶס מָקוֺם till there is an end of place = till there is no place (compare עַָד אֵין Psalm 40:13), Amos 6:10 (compare אָֽיִן Judges 4:20), Deuteronomy 32:36 (hence, in prose, 2 Kings 14:26), Isaiah 45:6 (compare אָין Isaiah 43:11) Isaiah 43:14; Isaiah 46:9; Isaiah 54:15; אֲנִי וְאַפְסִי עוֺד Zephaniah 2:15; Isaiah 47:8, 10 is probably to be rendered, 'I am, and there is none besides (so Ges Ew Di etc.), the י being 'paragogic' as in זוּלָתי etc. (Ges§ 90, 3 a Ew§ 211 b), compare וְאֵין עוֺד Isaiah 45:5, 6, 18, 21; but according to De the י is suffix of 1st person singular 'I am, and I am nought besides' (i.e. and I am nought besides my all-sufficient self). — בְּאֶפֶס (like בְּאֵין, which see) without: Proverbs 14:28; Proverbs 26:20; Job 7:6; Daniel 8:25.
c. as adverb of limitation:
(a) only: Numbers 22:35 (compare אַח Numbers 22:20) Numbers 23:13.
(b) אֶפֶס כִּי save that, howbeit (qualifying a preceding statement): Numbers 13:28; Deuteronomy 1:5; Judges 4:9; Amos 9:8 (+ 1 Samuel 1:5 Greek Version of the LXX We Sta Dr). So אֶפֶס alone 2 Samuel 12:14 (the following כִּי signifying because).

† [אֹ֫פֶס] noun [masculine] only in the dual אָפְסָ֑ים (not א׳; see Baer), literally the two extremities, i.e. either the soles of the feet (so AW Ges; compare Aramaic פִּיסְּתָא, aXtsfp, or the ankles (so Syriac Version Targum Vulgate, & most): only Ezekiel 47:2 מֵי א׳ water of (i.e. reaching to) the soles (or ankles); compare Ezekiel 47:4 מֵי מָתְנָ֑יִם water reaching to the loins.
