JEWISH PRESENCE IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL OF YESTERYEAR
By IsraelNationalNews Staff


   ".....The name Amichai [MyPeople Lives]..." 

   Actually when the term "(am"  -- Am with an 'Ayin  -- appears in theophric Semitic names it refers to the deity  as "kinsman", derived with a word meaning "uncle". A name like 'Amnichai meant " the deity is alive".
 
.

".... The words “for the king”..."

     The original is LMLK  and means "belonging  to the King". As attested by quite a few jar handles from that period. Compare this to "Mizmor L'David" in the HB.
