Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מָשִׁיחַ m.

(1) adj. verbal pass. (from the root מָשַׁה), χριστός, anointed (used of a shield), 2 Samuel 1:21 מָשִׁיחַ נָגִיד the anointed prince [Messiah the prince], Daniel 9:25 הַכֹּחֵן הַמָּשִׁיחַ the anointed priest, i.e. the high priest, Leviticus 4:3,, 16.

(2) subst. Χριστός, Anointed, i.e. prince (consecrated by anointing), Daniel 9:26 more fully מְשִׁיחַ יְיָ the anointed of Jehovah (LXX. ὁ Χριστὸς Κυρίου), a title of honour given to the kings of Israel as being consecrated to God by anointing, and, therefore, holy, 1 Samuel 2:10, 35 1 Samuel 2:35, 12:3, 1 Samuel 12:5, 16:6 24:7, 11 1 Samuel 24:11, 26:9, 11 1 Samuel 26:11, 23 1 Samuel 26:23; 2 Samuel 1:14, 16 2 Samuel 1:16, 19:22 23:1 Psalms 2:2, 18:51 20:7 28:8. Once used of Cyrus, king of Persia, Isaiah 45:1 never of the future Messiah (although some refer Psalms 2:2 to him). [This is an awfully false statement, many of these passages (as well as Psalms 2:2) refer to Christ only.] Plur. the anointed of Jehovah, of the Patriarchs, Psalms 105:15; 1 Chronicles 16:22.
