Mostly confined to particular phrases: thus
a. with different forms of אמר, כה תאמר thus shalt thou say Exodus 3:14,15; Exodus 19:3; Exodus 20:22 etc.; especially כה אמר יי֞ thus saith (or said) ׳י Exodus 4:22; Exodus 5:1; Exodus 7:17; Exodus 7:26; Exodus 8:16 etc.; and continually in the prophets, as Isaiah 7:7; Isaiah 8:11; Isaiah 18:4 etc.; Jeremiah 2:2,5; Jeremiah 4:27; Jeremiah 6:16 etc.; also in the idiomatic formula אִם כֹּה יאֹמַר if he say (or used to say) (the words spoken following) Genesis 31:8; 1 Samuel 14:9,10; 1 Samuel 20:7; 2 Samuel 15:26.
b. with עשׂה to do thus, Exodus 5:15; Deuteronomy 7:5; pointing back, Numbers 22:30; Joshua 6:14; 1 Samuel 27:11 and elsewhere; especially in the phrase כה יעשׂה אלהים וכה יוסיף (with variations), 1 Samuel 3:17 + (see יסף), in which כֹּה points to an imprecation understood but not expressed. With בְּ prefixed 1 Kings 22:20 ויאמר זה בְּכֹה וזה אמר בְּכֹה and one spake in this wise, and another spake in that wise ("" 2 Chronicles 18:19 כָכָהכָּ֗֗֗כָה; probably rightly).

also, here, hitherto, like, on the other side, so and much, such, on that manner
