Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גָּלַח unused in Kal, prop. to be smooth; hence to be naked (comp. גָּלָה), specially to be bald. Arab. جَلِحَ to be bald in the head. This root is softened from the harder root קָרַח; transp. it is חָלַק. In the western languages there correspond with this, calvus, Slav. goly, holy, Germ. kahl, also gelu, glacies.

Piel, to shave the head, Numbers 6:9; Deuteronomy 21:12 a person, 1 Chronicles 19:4 to shave off, cut off the hair (see Pual), the beard, 2 Samuel 10:4. Once intrans. to shave oneself (the hair and beard), Genesis 41:14. Metaph. any one is said to shave a land, who devastates it with fire and sword; Isaiah 7:20. (Ch. גַּלַּת to shave, to shear, גַּלָּת bald, used by the Rabbins of the monks, like the Bohem. holy).

Pual, to be shorn, Judges 16:17, 22 Judges 16:22.

Hithpael

(1) to shave oneself, Leviticus 13:33.

(2) to shave, or cut off from oneself (compare Lehrg. p. 284, letter d), with an acc., Numbers 6:19.
