Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מַסְוֶה m. a covering, a vail (for the face), -Exod. 34:3335. So all the versions, the context almost demanding it. But this cannot be explained on philological grounds. Yarchi indeed observes that this word is used in the Gemara in speaking of vailing the face, but this was no doubt taken from this passage. Arab. سَِويَّةُ, which I formerly compared, signifies rather a coverlet than a vail. Possibly we ought to read מסוכה (מְסוּכָּה, מְסֻכָּה), a covering, a vail.
