Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

כְּסוּת f.

(1)  covering, a cover, Exodus 21:10, 22:26 Job 24:7, 26:6 31:19. Metaph. כְּסוּת עֵינַיִם covering of the eyes is, i.q. a gift of appeasing given to any one that he may shut his eyes (with regard to something deserving reprehension), i.e. that he may connive at it (das Auge zudrücken), or a present given in order to obtain pardon, a mulct. So is the passage to be understood, which has a good deal troubled interpreters, Genesis 20:16, הִנֵּה הוּא לָךְ כְּסוּת עֵינַיִם לְכֹר אֲשֶׁר אִתָּךְ וְאֵת כֹּל “behold this (the gift of a thousand shekels) is to thee a mulct for all things, which have happened to thee, and before all men.” The LXX. which has either been neglected by interpreters, or else has been misunderstood, gives the meaning correctly; τιμὴ, i.e. a mulct, a price (Il. i. 159), i.q. elsewhere τίμημα. Several interpreters have taken a covering of the eyes to be a vail; and have thus rendered the whole passage, arbitrarily enough, behold this is to thee a vail of the eyes, i.e. with these thousand shekels (no little price indeed!) buy a vail for thyself, for all who are with thee, and altogether for all, i.e. that it may be manifest to all that thou art a married woman. They add that married women only wore vails, and that virgins did not; but this is altogether opposed to Eastern manners, and it cannot be proved.

(2) a garment, Deuteronomy 22:12.
