Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

פָּלַס not used in Kal.


(1) to make level, even, i.e. to prepare away, Isaiah 26:7; Proverbs 4:26, 5:6. Psalms 78:50, “he prepared a way for his anger,” i.e. he let his anger loose. (The primary power appears to be that of rolling, a sense which lies in the syllable פל, compare פּוֹל, פֶּלֶג, פָּלַךְ; hence to level by rolling a cylinder up and down, gerade walzen. It is kindred to the root פָּלַל, as the Germ. walzen comes from wallen, wellen.)

(2) to weigh (which is done by holding the balance level), to weigh out, metaph. Psalms 58:3 also, to weigh, to consider accurately, Proverbs 5:21.
