זַמָּה f. i.q. זִמָּה No. 1. Pl. זַמּוֹתִי for זַמּוֹתַי (comp. Gr. § 79, note 2 [§ 88, note 1]), my counsels or purposes, Psalms 17:3. According to the accents it is certainly to be thus taken, for the word זַמֹּתִי is Milrâ With the accent changed זַמּוֹ֫תִי is, I have purposed, and the sentence runs more smoothly if rendered, “(that which) I purposed (my mouth) shall not transgress.” [Qu. Is not this inf. of זָמַם?]
