From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Charmer
    one who practises serpent-charming (Ps. 58:5; Jer. 8:17; Eccl.
    10:11). It was an early and universal opinion that the most
    venomous reptiles could be made harmless by certain charms or by
    sweet sounds. It is well known that there are jugglers in India
    and in other Eastern lands who practise this art at the present
    day.
      In Isa. 19:3 the word "charmers" is the rendering of the
    Hebrew _'ittim_, meaning, properly, necromancers (R.V. marg.,
    "whisperers"). In Deut. 18:11 the word "charmer" means a dealer
    in spells, especially one who, by binding certain knots, was
    supposed thereby to bind a curse or a blessing on its object. In
    Isa. 3:3 the words "eloquent orator" should be, as in the
    Revised Version, "skilful enchanter."
