G0281


  #0281 ἀμήν amen {am-ane'}

 of Hebrew origin H0543; TDNT - 1:335,53; particle indeclinable

—Greek Word Study (Transliteration-Pronunciation Etymology & Grammar)


 1) firm
    1a) metaph. faithful
 2) verily, amen
   2a) at the beginning of a discourse - surely, truly, of a
       truth
   2b) at the end - so it is, so be it, may it be fulfilled. It was a
       custom, which passed over from the synagogues to the Christian
       assemblies, that when he who had read or discoursed, had
       offered up solemn prayer to God, the others responded Amen, and
       thus made the substance of what was uttered their own.

 ++++
 The word "amen" is a most remarkable word. It was transliterated
 directly from the Hebrew into the Greek of the New Testament, then
 into Latin and into English and many other languages, so that it is
 practically a universal word. It has been called the best known word
 in human speech. The word is directly related -- in fact, almost
 identical -- to the Hebrew word for "believe" (amam), or faithful.
 Thus, it came to mean "sure" or "truly", an expression of absolute
 trust and confidence.  --  HMM

—Thayer's (New Testament Greek-English Lexicon)
