Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

כְּנָת unused in sing.; plur. כְּנָווֹת Ezra 4:7 prop. cognomen (from the root כָּנָה, which see); meton. one who bears the same cognomen as another, i.e. performs the same function, is subject to the same king; σύνδουλος, colleague, associate in office. The form כְּנָת is for כְּנָאת, כְּנָאֶת, and the plural is formed in the same manner as מְנָאוֹת, מְנָיוֹת from מְנָת; see Lehrg. p. 607. To this answers Syriac ܟܢܳܬܳܐ, plur. ܟܰܢܘܳܬܐܳ i.e. σύνδουλος, σύνδουλοι. As to the feminine form of nouns of office, see Lehrg. p. 468.

כְּנָת Ch. id.; plur. כְּנָוָן const. and with suff. כְּנָוָת Ezra 4:9, 17 Ezra 4:17, 23 Ezra 4:23, 5:3, Ezra 5:6, 6:6, 13 Ezra 6:13.
