Magicians, the title which in our version is applied to the 'wise men' of Egypt (;;;;; ), and of Babylon (; ) The Hebrew word properly denotes 'wise men,' as they called themselves and were called by others; but, as we should call them, 'men eminent in learning and science,' their exclusive possession of which in their several countries enabled them occasionally to produce effects which were accounted supernatural by the people.
