Topics Definition of Hebrew Names

Lamech

By Jeff A. Benner

This is one of the names in the Bible that is very difficult to translate as the root of this word, למך, is not used anywhere in the Biblical text and therefore the meaning of this root/word/name is impossible to determine with any degree of accuracy. One possible interpretation is that this name is the verb מוך (mok, Strong's #4134) meaning "low" and prefixed by the letter ל meaning "to" – "to be low." Other suggested meanings for this root/word/name are powerful, robust and priest.
