Roots

MAGAZINE (a store or a storage area for bullets or essays) is an official borrowing from Arabic makhzan (storehouse).

מחסן MaK[H]$aN (storage area) is an extension of words like מחסה   MaK[H]a$eH ("pavilion" in Isaiah4:6) and חסה  K[H]aSaH ("to take shelter" in Judges9:15).


Branches

MiKHa$eH is a covering (“in durable clothing” Harkavy – Isaiah 23:18). A long lost relative might be the MOCCASIN (mohkussin, shoe or foot covering of the Massachusetts, Natick and Narragansett American Indians) .  A Mem-Het-Samekh shoe word is more probable because in Hungarian the first element of “boot” is magas. More on the KH-S root at ENCASE and HOUSE and the S-K root of SHOE at SACK.


Bible Verses

Isaiah 4:6 וסכה תהיה לצל־יומם מחרב ולמחסה ולמסתור מזרם וממטר׃

“And there shall be a pavilion for a shadow in the day-time from the heat, and for a refuge and for a covert from storm and from rain.”
