Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שָׁלַב not used in Kal.-Arab. ثلب is i.q. ثلم to break (a vessel, a sword), so as to make notches (Scharten) on the edge and margin; Chald. שְׁלַב Pael, to join together, to connect; whence שַׁלְבִּין, שְׁלִיבִין steps or rounds of a ladder, so called from joining together (die Spalen). In Hebrew this verb appears to have meant, to join planks by tenons (ineinanderzapfen), from tenons resembling teeth or notches (compare architect. term, Berzahnung).

Pual, part. Exodus 26:17, “two tenons (Zapfen) (there shall be) to each board מְשֻׁלָּבוֹת אִשָּׁה אֶל־אֲחוֹתָהּ joined to one another” (perhaps by transverse pieces of wood under the sockets). But LXX. ἀντιπίπτοντας ἕτερον τῷ ἑτέρῳ, opposite one to another. Hence
