Headword: *)/ahma
Adler number: alpha,655
Translated headword: blast
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the breath of the wind.[1]
"The dreadful blast of winds puts the roaring sea to bed; almighty sleep binds and releases, he does not hold forever. Can we not learn to grow wise? For I am newly aware that an enemy is to be hated by us only as much as one who will become a friend again; and I wish to give to a friend only so much service as to one who will not always remain [a friend]. For the haven of companionship is faithless to many men."[2]

[1] Same glossing, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon. The headword, a neuter noun, is probably (though not demonstrably) extracted from the quotation given.
