כָּפַשׁ prob. i.q. כָּבַשׁ, كَبِسَ I., IV., to cover over with any thing.
Hiphil, Lamentations 3:16, הִכְפִּישַׁנִי בָּאֵפֶר “he has covered me over with ashes.” Used by the Talmudists of a heaped measure, also of the Jewish church bowed down amongst ashes, or covered over with ashes (מיכשׁפת באפר Ber. Rabba, § 75). Ch. he hath humbled me in ashes; LXX. indeed and Vulg. ἐψώμισέ με σποδό́ν, cibavit me cinere, a sense gathered from the context because verbs of food have preceded.
