Resource Toolbox

hāl : Interjection, found only in the Gospels as the translation of χαῖρε , chaı́re , χαίρετε , chaı́rete , imp. of χαίρω , chaı́rō , "to rejoice," is used as a greeting or salutation. The word "Hail" is Old English and was formerly an adjective, used with the verb to be, meaning "well," "sound," "hale," e.g. "Hale be thou." Wycliff has "heil" without the verb, followed by other English VSS , except that the Geneva has "God save thee," in Matthew 26:49 ; Matthew 28:9 . The word occurs in Matthew 26:49 ; Matthew 27:29 ; Matthew 28:9 , "all hail"; Mark 15:18 ; Luke 1:28 ; John 19:3 . See GODSPEED ; GREETING .
