Hi I am would like to know everything about this word. I had a discussion about Song of Solomon 5:16 (( חִכּוֹ, מַמְתַקִּים, וְכֻלּוֹ, מַחֲמַדִּים; זֶה דוֹדִי וְזֶה רֵעִי, בְּנוֹת יְרוּשָׁלִָם )) and I don't want to bring up religion (ironic, I know) but I want to know if מַחֲמַדִּים can refer to a name of a person.. Or as the majority of translations have it, does it mean something "precious"? Can you tell me the root of this word is, what part of speech it is (and if it's a noun, how would you say noun in Hebrew?) , singular and plural forms and as extensive of a definition as you can? Maybe how it would be used in modern speech? Thank you all, I love to read and I would like as much detail as possible.
