The Hebrew Words
Pekudei is a conjugation of the Hebrew word pekudim (Strong's #6491). It is a Hebrew word which means "to number" or "count" something. It comes from the root word pakad (Strong's #6485) which means "to attend to", "visit", "muster", or "appoint". Pekudim is used once in the whole of the Tanakh.
