Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

יָלַל an onomatopoetic root, unused in Kal, to yell, to wail. See for similar words under יוֹבֵל page 339, B also Arm. լալ. lal, Germ. lullen, Low Saxon, lilauen.

Hiphil הֵילִיל, fut. יְהֵילִיל (Isaiah 52:5), יְיֵלִיל (Lehrg. p. 389).

(1) to cry out, to lament, to howl, Isaiah 13:6, 15:3 23:1, 14 Isaiah 23:14; Jeremiah 25:34; Amos 8:3, הֵילִילוּ שִׁירוֹת הֵיבָל “the songs of palaces shall howl” (shall become sad, shall be mournful).

(2) Once used of the joyful voices of proud conquerors, Isaiah 52:5 so ܐܝܰܠܶܠ of the sound of war, Barhebr. p. 411, 413, Gr. ὀλολύζειν of a joyful out-cry, Æschyl. Septem ante Theb. 831; Agam. 281; and on the contrary ἀλαλάζειν for lamentation, Eurip. Phœn. 358. Also רָנַן, הֵרִיעַ, מִרְזָח are used for outcry of either kind.-There seems to be a trace of the form הוֹלִיל (compare وَلْوَلَ and the noun תּוֹלָל), Psalms 78:63, where for הוּלָּלוּ the parallelism requires us to read הוֹלִילוּ (are lamented). [Few, I believe, will approve of any such alteration; the passage needs none.]
