kount (caphar, manah; psephizo):

Used of arithmetical computation "to number" (Psalms 139:18; Numbers 23:10); also for kathabh, "to reckon," to indicate classification among or identification with, "count for a stranger" (Job 19:15); "count for his enemy" (Job 33:10). In the New Testament the arithmetical computation is less prominent, except in the sense of "calculate," psephizo, sumpsephizo, "to reckon with pebbles," each pebble representing a unit (Luke 14:28; Acts 19:19); of moral estimate, hegeomai and logizomai (Philippians 3:7,13). The noun, from Hebrew kacath, "a count of" (Exodus 12:4), namely, in the arithmetical sense.
