Man.

Man. [N] [T] [E]

Four Hebrew terms are rendered "man" in the Authorized Version:

  1. Adam, the name of the man created in the image of God. It appears to be derived from adam , "he or it was red or ruddy," like Edom. This was the generic term for the human race.
  2. Ish , "man," as distinguished from woman, husband.
  3. Geber , "a man," from gabar , "to be strong," generally with reference to his strength.
  4. Methim , "men," always masculine. Perhaps it may be derived from the root muth , "he died."
