Aleph-kaph-mem when googled led me to the definition 'Angel'...
Actual Hebrew letters in original. mem and tet are transposed, kaph and vav look just like resh. * = final forms.p. 52, note "54".
In the latter expression the word for "hand," kaph, signifies "the palm of the hand," consequently, not even hidden uncleanness within the hand, -- therefore complete innocency.
On the basis of "like" = the famous kaph veritatis, and the well-known principle, post hoc ergo hoc
A: Well, there’s been a lot of confusion over consonants like he, waw, heh, yod, kaph, mem, and zayin . . .
 - except for letters א aleph and ע ayin, which are silent. vav nail, tent peg hand kaph palm of hand
