Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֲשִׁימָא [Ashima], 2 Kings 17:30, a domestic divinity of the men of Hamath, of doubtful origin. It seems probable to me that we should compare the Pers. اسمان asuman, heaven, Zend. açmânô. As to what I formerly compared (on Is. ii. 348), Achuma, i.e. the planet Jupiter, rests on an error of Kleuker, the German translator of the Zendavesta; for this planet is not called Achuma but Anhuma (Zendavesta, Paris, ii. p. 356). I am sorry that this error has been adopted and increased by Winer, page 97, who writes it Aschiana.
