chaliyl , "to bore." Representing wind instruments, as the harp represents "stringed instruments". The pipe single or double, the flute; one of the simplest and oldest of musical instruments, the accompaniment of festivity (1 Kings 1:40; Luke 7:32; Isaiah 5:12), religious services (1 Samuel 10:5), and processions (Isaiah 30:29). Also suited by its plaintive softness to mourning (Matthew 9:23; Jeremiah 48:36). The "shawm " of which the clarionet is an improvement, may be from chaliyl through the French chalumeau , German schalmeie .
