דָּדָה to go slowly, a secondary root contracted from the fuller دَأْدَأَ. II. to delay, loiter, to go on slowly, to waver or totter in going. [The comparison with this Arabic root is spoken of doubtfully in Thes.] Ch. and Talmud. דִּדָּה to lead slowly, e. g. a little child.
Hithpael הִדַּדָּה (for הִתְדַּדָּה), Isaiah 38:15, אֶדַּדֶּה כָל־שְׁנוֹתַי “all my years I will go slowly” (i.e. submissively, comp. הָלַךְ אַט 1 Kings 21:27), i.e. I will act modestly and submissively, as if, I would never cease to lament. Hence used of the solemn slowness of a procession, Psalms 42:5, אֶדַּדֵּם עַד בֵּית אֱלֹהִים “I went with them to the house of God.” The suffix ־ֵם is for לָהֶם; and the dative is to be referred to this, that the Poet [Psalmist], as leader of the choir as it were, made way for the people.
