Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 מַכְשֵׁלָה noun feminine 1. overthrown mass.

2 stumbling-block; —

1 figurative of kingdom Isaiah 3:6.

2 plural הַמַּכְשֵׁלוֺת Zephaniah 1:3 stumbling-blocks = idols (compare מִכְשׁוֺל 2 c), but rather dubious; We thinks a gloss. Schw ZAW x. (1890), 169 reads וְכִשַּׁלְתִּי and I will cause the wicked to stumble.

I. כשׁף (√ of following; compare Arabic cut off, cut up, Syriac to pray (literally probably to cut oneself, see 1 Kings 18:28): so Rs J Phil. xiv. 125,126 ZMG 1886,723; according to RS כֶּשֶׁף is properly herbs etc. shredded into a magic brew).
