Enchantments

(1.) The rendering of Hebrew "latim" or "lehatim", which means
"something covered," "muffled up;" secret arts, tricks (Ex.
7:11, 22; 8:7, 18), by which the Egyptian magicians imposed on
the credulity of Pharaoh.

(2.) The rendering of the Hebrew "keshaphim", "muttered
spells" or "incantations," rendered "sorceries" in Isa. 47:9,
12, i.e., the using of certain formulae under the belief that
men could thus be bound.

(3.) Hebrew "lehashim", "charming," as of serpents (Jer. 8:17;
compare Ps. 58:5).

(4.) Hebrew "nehashim", the enchantments or omens used by
Balaam (Num. 24:1); his endeavouring to gain omens favourable to
his design.

(5.) Hebrew "heber" (Isa. 47:9, 12), "magical spells." All
kinds of enchantments were condemned by the Mosaic law (Lev.
19:26; Deut. 18:10-12). (See DIVINATION T0001047.)
