3 reel, in giddiness on the sea Psalm 107:27 (compare חָגָּא Isaiah 19:17); this either points to an earlier meaning of v; or better, the Psalm being late, means reel as from festival excesses ("" וְיָנוּעוּ כַשִּׁכּוֺר).

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חָגַג (kindred to the root חוּג) to go round in a circle, hence

(1) to dance, 1 Samuel 30:16.

(2) to keep a festival, from the idea of leaping, and dancing in sacred dances, Exodus 5:1; Leviticus 23:41 especially of a public assembly, Psal. 42:5. (Syriac ܚܰܓܐܳ, ܚܰܓܝܺ id. Arabic حَجَّ to go to Mecca, as a Hadj or pilgrim, to keep the public festival.)

(3) to reel, to be giddy, used of drunkards, Psalms 107:27 applied to a Person terrified, whence חָגָּא fear. Hence are derived חָג, חָגָּא and the proper names חַגַּי, חַגִּי, חַגִּיָה, חַגִּית.
