דֳּלִי m. id. Numbers 24:7, יִזַּל מַיִם מִדָּֽלְיָו “water shall flow from his buckets,” i.e. his posterity shall be numerous; metaphora ab aquâ de situlâ destillante, ad semen virile translata, ex nostro sensu obscœna, sed Orientalibus familiari; compare שָׁגַל, سجل and Isai 48:1. In the other hemistich זַרְעוֹ בְּמַיִם רַבִּים. דָּֽלְיָו (dǒl-yגv) is from the dual דָּֽלְיַיִם (as buckets for drawing were made in pairs), but with Metheg retained in the penultima.
