(1) i.q. דָּלַל to hang down, to be pendulous, compare Arabic دلى Conj. V used of branches hanging down, and Eth. ደሰወ፡ to wave, to hang down, see דָּלִית.

(2) to make to hang down, i.e. to let down, a bucket into a well, to draw water. (Arab. دَلَا and دَلَى, Syr. ܕܠܳ, id. Hence Gr. τλάω, and the compound ἀν-τλάω, Lat. antlare) Exodus 2:16, 19. Metaph. Proverbs 20:5, “counsel in the heart of a man is as deep water, וְאִישׁ תְּבוּנָה יִדְלֶנָּה but a man of understanding will draw it out.”

Piel, to draw, to take out (from a well), metaph. to set free, Psalms 30:2, אֲרוֹמִמְךָ כִּי דִלִּיתָנִי “I will extol thee, for thou hast set me free.” As to the form דַּלְיוּ Proverbs 26:7, see דָּלַל.

Hence דַּל No I, דָּלָה, דֶּלֶת, דְּלִי, דֳּלִי, דָּלִית and the pr.n. דְּלָיָה, דְּלָיָהוּ.

דָּלָה i.q דֶּלֶת a door, see דַּל No. I, Isaiah 26:20 קרי, [דְּלָֽתְךָ], whence dual דְּלָתַיִם, see the word דֶּלֶת.
