Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

קָסַם fut. יִקְסֹם to divine, to practise divination, as a verb used always of the false prophets of the Hebrews, Deuteronomy 18:10, 14 Deuteronomy 18:14; 2 Kings 17:17; Micah 3:6, Micah 3:7, 11 Micah 3:11; Isaiah 3:2 of evokers of the dead, 1 Samuel 28:8 and of the prophets of strange nations, as of the Philistines, 1 Samuel 6:2 of Balaam, Joshua 13:22. (To this answers the Syr. ܩܨܰܡ to divine. The primary idea appears to be that of cutting; compare قسم, גָּזַם, a notion which is applied to divination, compare גְּזַר No. 2.)
