Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חָתָה fut. יַחְתֶּה to take, to take hold of, to seize (perhaps cogn. to חָתַף, whence by softening the third radical might be formed חתב and חָתַו). It is once applied to a man, Psalms 52:7 elsewhere always, to fire or burning coals. Isaiah 30:14, לַחְתּוֹת אֵשׁ מִיָּקוּד “to take away fire from a hearth.” Proverbs 6:27, 25:22, pregn. const. כִּי גֶחָלִים אַתָּה חֹתֶה עַל־רֹאשׁוֹ “for thou wilt take coals of fire (and heap them) on his head.” See under the word גֶּחָל.-Hence מַחְתָּה fire-pan, censer [and מַחַת].
