Topics Definition of Hebrew Words

By Jeff A. Benner
אֶחָד ehhad
The word ehhad (noun) comes from the verbal root ahhad meaning "to unite." Ehhad is best translated with the word "unit," something that is part of the whole, a unit within a community. In the Hebrew mind everything is, or should be, a part of a unity. There is not one tree but a tree composed of units within the unity-roots, trunk, branches and leaves. A tree is also in unity with the other trees-the forest. A son is a unit within the brotherhood and the family.

Strong's: #259
