[ לֹא or לוֺא adverb not (Arabic , Aramaic לָא, , Sabean לא, Ass. ; not in Ethiopic: compare Kö ii. 1. 236 Walker AJSL 1896,237 ff.) — לוֺא, according to Masora (Fr MM 248), 35t., besides בְּלוֺא6t., and הֲלוֺא, the orthography of which varies much ( ib. p. 251), e.g. in Samuel always הֲלוֺא, in Chronicles always הֲלֹא, on the whole הֲלוֺא141t., הֲלֹא128t.; twice, according to Masora, written לו (Qr לֹא), 1 Samuel 2:16; 1 Samuel 20:2, once לה Deuteronomy 3:11 Kt: — not — denying objectively, like οὐ (not μὴ = אַל): —
