Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מִכְתָּם m. i.q. מִכְתָּב No. 2, b [a very bold conjecture], (b in common usage has gradually been changed to m, compare page 96, A ), something written, specially a poem. It only occurs in the headings of Psa 16:1-11, -5660, compare Isaiah 38:9. Others very unsuitably render מִכְתָּם (as from כֶּתֶם gold) a golden or most precious poem. [This meaning, however unsuitable it might seem to Gesenius, requires at least no rash conjecture.]
