Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament ScripturesGesenius: אֹות (H226 in 33 WLC links below)
(for אֹות from אָוָה No. III; comp. أَيَةُ or اَيَةُ sign for أَوْيَةُ from اوى), Pl. אֹתֹות m. and f. (comp. sing, Gen 9:12 Exo 4:8, plur. Exo 4:9 Jos 24:17), a sign (Ch. אָת, Syr. ܐܳܬܳܐ pl. ܐܳܬܘ̈ܳܬܳܐ). Exo 12:13 Jos 2:12 Gen 1:14 וְהָיוּ לְאֹתֹות וּלְמֹועֲדִים “and they shall be (the lights of heaven) for signs and times,” i.e. by ἓν διὰ δυοῖν, signs of times. It is-
(1) a military ensign, and specially that of each particular tribe, differing from דֶּגֶל standard, which be-longed to each camp of three tribes, Num 2:2, seq.
(3) a sign of something future, a portent, τύπος τοῦ μέλλοντος [?] ( Rom 5:14), i.q. מֹופֵת. Isa 8:18 “behold, I and the children whom Jehovah hath given me are for signs and wonders in Israel from Jehovah of hosts,” i.e. by the names divinely bestowed upon us, all of which are of good omen (יְשַׁעְיָה “the salvation of God,” עִמָּנוּאֵל “God with us,” Isa 7:14 Isa 8:8 Shear Jashub, 7:3 ); God makes us types of future things as signifying future welfare. [Gesenius does not understand the true reference of the passage; we know, from Heb 2:13, that Christ is speaking of himself and the Church, God’s children given him for redemption, brought into blessing while the nation of Israel continues in unbelief.] Comp. Isa 20:3 Eze 4:3.
(4) the sign of anything which cannot itself be seen, Gen 1:14, ex. gr. “the sign of the covenant,” circumcision, Gen 17:11, of the sabbath, Exo 31:13, hence, token, proof, argument, Kennzeichen, Beweis; comp. Lat. signum, Cic. Invent. 1, 34; Gr. τεκμήριον, σημεῖον, Job 21:29, and hence a miracle, as a sign of the divine power, i.q. מֹופֵת Deu 4:34 Deu 6:22 Deu 7:19 Deu 29:2 Deu 34:11 , see my remarks at length on Isa 7:11 [see Mat 1:23, as to the meaning of the passage]. Of the prophetic sign or [“token of the truth of a prophecy, viz. when God, or the prophet as his interpreter, foretells some minor event, the fulfilment of which serves as a sign or proof of the future fulfilment of the whole prophecy. Exo 3:12 Deu 13:2, Deu 13:3 -1 Sa. 2:2734 ; -10:79 ; 2Ki 19:29 2Ki 20:8 , 2Ki 20:9 -Isa. 7:1114 ; 38:7 , 22 Isa 38:22 Jer 44:29, 30 Jer 44:30, comp. Mar 13:4 Luk 1:18 2:12 .” Ges. add.]
