Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

לַחַשׁ m.

(1) pr. a whispering, i.e. prayers uttered in a low voice, Isaiah 26:16.

(2) incantation, magic, Isaiah 3:3 [“specially charming serpents;”] Jeremiah 8:17; Ecclesiastes 10:11. Compare אִמִּים.

(3) pl. לְחָשִׁים Isaiah 3:20, amulets, or superstitious ornaments, commonly gems and precious stones, or plates of gold and silver, on which magical formulæ were inscribed, such as women in the East were accustomed to hang round their necks, or put into their ears; according to Kimchi and Luther, earrings, (compare Genesis 35:4, and see the versions of that passage, and Syr. ܘܕܳܫܐܳ). Prop. charms against enchantment; nor ought it be deemed strange that the same word should both denote this and also enchantment itself (comp. رقية enchantment, also an amulet), since it was by the same thing, namely a magical song, that they both enchanted and sought to avert the effects of enchantment.
