(keh ssee' tah) Transliteration of Hebrew meaning, “part, measure, piece of money.” Jacob paid 100 kesitahs for land near Shechem (Genesis 33:19 ; compare Joshua 24:32 ). The earliest Greek translation translated kesitah as “lamb.” (Compare REB.) After God restored his fortunes, Job received a kesitah from each of his friends (Job 42:11 ).
