noun [masculine], meaning dubious; either gnat, gnats, gnat-swarm (so ᵐ5ᵑ9 <TOPIC:Philo Judaeus> Philo Vita Mos. i, p. 97, <TOPIC:Origen>Origen Hom. 4,6 in Ex., and most moderns), or [louse,] lice (so ᵑ6ᵑ7 Jos Ant. ii. 14. 13Boch Hieroz. II, ii, 572f., as Late Hebrew כִּנָּה, plural כִּנִּים = maggots, and especially lice) — absolute perhaps כֵּן Isaiah 51:6 (see below); plural כִּנִּים Exodus 8:13; Exodus 8:14; Psalm 105:31, כִּנִּם Exodus 8:12; Exodus 8:13; Exodus 8:14 has, also, כִּנָּם probably a mere Masoretic device for כִּנִּם (compare Di), on account of preceding וַתְּהִי (on which see Ges§ 145. 4Da Synt. § 116); ⅏ has כנים throughout: — of Egyptian plague Exodus 8:12; Exodus 8:13 (twice in verse); Exodus 8:14 (twice in verse) (all P), hence Psalm 105:31; כְּמוֺכֵֿן יְמוּתוּן Isaiah 51:6 like a gnatswarm (?) shall they die (compare Di Du; Weir Che read כנים, compare Buhl p. 355; > Brd De like this).
Note. — Nö M 54 Ba NB § 15, Esther 53 Buhl Ges HWB ed. 12 connect this word etymologically with Aramaic כלמתא vermin, Ba and Buhl also with Assyrian kalmatu, id. [Dl HWB 333], and even with Aramaic קלמתא, , Arabic , etc., Ethiopic louse; but these connections, as well as that with Late Hebrew כְּנִימָה, all involving radical מ, are most improbable
