Gesenius: יָם (H3220 in 44 WLC links below)

const. יָֽם־ more rarely יַם־; with suff. יַמָּהּ Jer 51:36 with ה parag. יָ֫מָּה; pl. יַמִּים m.-

(1) the sea (Arab. يَمُ, Syr. ܝܰܡܐܳ and ܝܡܰܬܐܳ but the latter word is generally used for a lake; Ægypt. ⲟⲙ id. A derivation is scarcely to be sought; however it may be conjectured that it properly denotes, the boiling, foaming of the sea; compare יֹום and יֵמִים; [referred in Thes. to the unused root יָמַם]). Used either of the ocean or any of its parts, or of inland lakes ( Job 14:11, Syr. ܝܰܡܬܳܐ) So יָֽם־כִּנֶּרֶת the lake of Tiberius, Num 34:11 יָֽם־הַמֶּלַח Gen 14:3 (the salt sea), יָם הָֽעֲרָבָה (sea of the desert) Deu 4:49, יָם קַדְמֹנִי (eastern sea) Joe 2:20 Zec 14:8, lacus Asphaltites, or the Dead Sea; יַם־סוּף (the weedy sea, see סוּף ) and יַם־מִצְרַיִם Isa 11:15, the Red Sea; הַיָּם הַגָּדֹול the great sea, Num 34:6, Num 34:7, and הַיָּם הָֽאַחֲרֹון the hinder, i.e. the western sea, Deu 11:24, for the Mediterranean sea; הַיָּם with art. used (as shown by the context) of the Mediterranean sea, Jos 15:47 the sea of Galilee, Isa 8:23 the Red Sea, Isa 10:26 the Dead Sea, Isa 16:8 הֲמֹון יָם wealth of the sea, is the wealth of maritime and trans-marine nations (הָאִיִּים) procured by sea voyages; Isa 60:5, i.q. שֶׁפַע יַמִּים Deu 33:19 Job 7:12, הֲיָם אֲנִי אִם תַּנִּין כִּי וגו׳ “am I a sea, or a seamonster, that,” etc., i.e. am I untamed like the sea? Lam 2:13, גָּדֹול כַּיָּם שִׁבְרֵךְ “thy ruin is great like the sea.” Plur. יַמִּים seas, poet. for the sing., e.g. for the prose חֹול הַיָּם Gen 32:13 Gen 41:49 poet. is said חֹול יַמִּים Gen 49:13 Job 6:3 Jdg 5:17 Psa 78:27. Figuratively and hyperbolically יָם־הַנְּחשֶׁת the sea of brass was the name of the great laver in the inner court of Solomon’s temple, 2Ki 25:13 1Ch 18:8. The name of sea is also applied to-

(2) a great river, as the Nile, Isa 19:5 Nah 3:8 the Euphrates, Isa 27:1 Jer 51:36 pl. of the arms of the Nile, Eze 32:2. (So Arab. يَمُّ and بَحْرُ compare Diod. i. 12, 96. More instances have been given on Isa 19:5.)

(3) the west, the western quarter, from the Mediterranean sea being situated to the west of Palestine; רוּחַ יָם the west wind, Exo 10:19 פְּאַת־יָם the west side, Exo 27:12 Exo 38:12 יָמָּה westward, Gen 28:14 Exo 26:22 (also to the sea, Exo 10:19, for which there is more frequently הַיָּמָּה); מִיָּם from the west, Gen 12:8 מִיָּם לְ on the west of any place, Jos 8:9, 12 Jos 8:12, 13 Jos 8:13. Twice ( Psa 107:3 Isa 49:12) יָם is joined with the north (צָפֹון); and on this account some suppose it, at least in these places, to signify the south; but elsewhere, also quarters which are not opposite but near together are spoken of in the same connexion; compare Amo 8:12 Deu 33:23.
