( Genesis 33:19 , RSV, marg., a Hebrew word, rendered, A.V., pl. "pieces of money," marg., "lambs;" Joshua 24:32 , "pieces of silver;" Job 42:11 , "piece of money"). The kesitah was probably a piece of money of a particular weight, cast in the form of a lamb. The monuments of Egypt show that such weights were used. (See PIECES .)
