KESITAH is given in RVm [Note: Revised Version margin.] as the Heb. word rendered ‘ piece of money ’ in the three passages Genesis 33:19 , Joshua 24:32 , and Job 42:11 . No clue has yet been found to the weight, and therefore the value, of the kesitah ; but that it was an ingot of precious metal of a recognized value is more probable than the tradition represented by several ancient versions, which render it by ‘ lamb.
