 Definition: 
\Cab"a*la\ (k[a^]b"[.a]*l[.a]), n. [LL. See {Cabal}, n.]
1. A kind of occult theosophy or traditional interpretation
   of the Scriptures among Jewish rabbis and certain
   medi[ae]val Christians, which treats of the nature of god
   and the mystery of human existence. It assumes that every
   letter, word, number, and accent of Scripture contains a
   hidden sense; and it teaches the methods of interpretation
   for ascertaining these occult meanings. The cabalists
   pretend even to foretell events by this means.

2. Secret science in general; mystic art; mystery.
