Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מֶכֶס m. (from the root כָּסַס, like מֶמֶר from מָרַר), pr. number, price (see fem.), then tribute, Numbers 31:28, -3741. Aram. ܡܰܟܣܳܐ, Arab. مَكْسُ census, toll, whence is formed a new verb مَكَّسَ to collect tribute, also a denominative noun ܡܳܟܣܐܳ, مَاكِسُ a publican, tax-gatherer. The Armenians have also adopted this noun; and they write it մաՔս. Contracted from this is מַס, fem. [מִסָּה].
