Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

סָלָה i.q. סָלָא and סָלַל to lift up. Whence

(1) To suspend a balance, to weigh, see Pual.

(2) Like the Latin elevavit, i.e. contemsit, to despise (as light things are of small importance and value, heavy things of much), Psalms 119:118. (Chald. and Syr. id.)

Piel, i.q. Kal No. 2, Lamentations 1:15.

Pual, pass. of Kal No. 1, Job 28:16 used of wisdom, לֹא תְסֻלֶּה בְּכֶתֶם אוֹפִיר “it cannot be weighed with gold of Ophir,” it cannot be bought with gold.

II. סָלָה perhaps i.q. שָׁלָה (ס and שׁ being interchanged), to be quiet, to be silent. Hence
