Appended to a verb, it expresses, in early Hebrew, a real emphasis, as Judges 8:23 לֹא אֶמְשֹׁל אֲנִי בָּכֶם I will not rule over you, 2 Samuel 12:28 lest I take the city, 2 Samuel 17:15 thus and thus did Ahitophel counsel, and thus and thus יָעַצְתִּי אָ֫נִי did I counsel; but in later Hebrew It is sometimes pelonastc, Ecclesiastes 2:11,15,18,20 +. In response to a question, אָ֫נִי alone = I Amos , It is I, Genesis 27:24; Judges 13:11; 1 Kings 18:8 +. With הֲֶהַאֲנִי Isaiah 66:9. (Synonym אָנֹכִּי, q. v.)
