Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מִסְפָּר m. (from the root סָפַר)

(1)  narration (compare the verb in Pi.) Judges 7:15.

(2) number, Numbers 1:2, 9:20 and so frequently. Sometimes in the acc. it is put adverbially for according to the number. Exodus 16:16, מִסְפַּר נַפְשֹׁתֵיכֶם “according to the number of your souls.” Job 1:5. Elsewhere (as the Gr. ἀριθυῷ, ἀριθμόν) it is added pleonastically to numerals. 2 Samuel 21:20, עֶשְׂרִים וְאַרְבַּע מִסְפָּר “twenty-four in number” (24 an der Zahl).-אֵין מִסְפָּר Genesis 41:49 לְאֵין מִסְפָּר 1 Chronicles 22:4, and עַד־אֵין מִסְפָּר Job 5:9, 9:10 without number, i.e. innumerable. On the contrary מְתֵי מִסְפָּר, אַנְשֵׁי מִסְפָּר men of number, are a few, such as can be easily numbered, Genesis 34:30; Deuteronomy 4:27; Psalms 105:12; Jeremiah 44:28; 1 Chronicles 16:19 and in apposit. יָמִים מִסְפָר the days, which are a number, i.e. can be numbered, a few, Numbers 9:20. (Similarly معدودات ايّام numbered days, i.e. a few, Koran ii. 180; but see the interpreters.) In Deuteronomy 33:6, in the words וִיהִי מְתָיו מִסְפָּר the particle of negation must be repeated from what has preceded, and the rendering is, “and let (not) his men be a number,” i.e. let them be many, innumerable.

(3) [Mispar], pr.n. m. Ezra 2:2 for which there is מִסְפֶּרֶת Nehemiah 7:7.
