Current usage of the word Amen originates etymologically from the Semitic Hebrew “אמן” (a-m-n) which translates loosely as “Truth!”, “Agreed!” or “Yes!”. It also overlaps with the Kemetic (Egyptian) word that translates as “Hidden One” or “Invisible” and was the name of one of the primordial Kemetic Gods of Creation known as Amun or “the Father” in the Theban Triad.

When used at the end of a prayer the meaning changes to “so be it”, “so mote it be” or in the famous words of Jean-Luc Picard… “make it so”.
