Today’s word, mad•hin, amazing, is one of the two most common words that are used by the younger generation in Israel to expresses amazement and admiration. Admittedly, the overuse of this word somewhat dilutes its magnitude.
Although mad•him sounds like an informal, ultra-modern expression, it is a formal Hebrew word, and its verb in past tense even appears in the Bible:
“Why should you be like a man astonished, like a mighty man who cannot save? yet you, O Lord, are in the midst of us, and we are called by your name; leave us not”
You may use this name to describe nouns or people. Just take a note that not only people, but also nouns in Hebrew are pre-determined to be either masculine or feminine. With today’s word, we describe masculine nouns with ‘mad•him,’ and feminine nouns with ‘mad•hi•ma.’ The same thing applies to people, respectively.
