one who pretends to prognosticate future events. Baalam is so called (Josh 13:22; Heb. kosem, a "diviner," as rendered 1Sam 6:2; rendered "prudent," Isa 3:2). In Isa 2:6 and Mic 5:12 (Heb. yonenim, i.e., "diviners of the clouds") the word is used of the Chaldean diviners who studied the clouds. In Dan 2:27; 5:7 the word is the rendering of the Chaldee gazrin, i.e., "deciders" or "determiners", here applied to Chaldean astrologers, "who, by casting nativities from the place of the stars at one's birth, and by various arts of computing and divining, foretold the fortunes and destinies of individuals.", Gesenius, Lex. Heb. (See SORCERER.)
