Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חָסַם to stop up, to muzzle the mouth, Deuteronomy 25:4 the nostrils, Ezekiel 39:11, וְחֹסֶמֶת הִיא אֶת־הָעֹבְרִים “(this valley) shall stop (the nostrils) of those who pass through;” that is, because of the stench; unless the sense adopted in the Syriac version be preferred, “by reason of the multitude of corpses it will stop up the way against passers by.” [“Kindred to חָטַם, which see.”] Hence מַחְסֹם.
