Ancient Hebrew Lexicon Definitions

1012) la (אל AL) AC: Yoke CO: Ox AB: Strength: The pictograph a is a picture of an ox head and also represents its strength. The l is a picture of a shepherd staff and also represents the authority of the shepherd. Combined these two pictographs mean "the strong authority" and can be anyone or thing of strong authority. The yoke is understood as a "staff on the shoulders" (see Isaiah 9:4) in order to harness their power for pulling loads such as a wagon or plow. Hence, the two pictographs can also represent "the ox in the yoke". Often two oxen were yoked together. An older, more experienced ox would be teamed up (yoked) with a younger, less experienced ox. The older ox in the yoke is the "strong authority" who, through the yoke, teaches the younger ox. (eng: all; elk; elephant)

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אַיִל m.

(1)  a ram, from its curved and twisted horns; see the root אוּל and אִיל, which properly has the sense of rolling, or twisting, Genesis 15:9 pl. אֵילִים Exodus 25:5, and אֵלִים Job 42:8. Intensive of this is אַיָּל.

(2) a term in architecture, crepido portœ, or the projecting ledge surrounding a door at the top and the two sides, often adorned with columns on each side, with a frieze above, with a projection below, die verzierte Ginfaffung der Thür mit Säulenpfoften, Fries und Sockel. 1 Kings 6:31; Ezekiel 41:3 compare Ezekiel 40:9, 21 Ezekiel 40:21, 24 Ezekiel 40:24, 26 Ezekiel 40:26, 29 Ezekiel 40:29, 33 Ezekiel 40:33, 36 Ezekiel 40:36, 37 Ezekiel 40:37, 48 Ezekiel 40:48, 49 Ezekiel 40:49. In pl. אֵילִים crepidines, or projections in front of a building, commonly ornamented with columns or palm trees, between which are spaces occupied by windows, Ezekiel 41:1, 40:10, 14 Ezekiel 40:14, 16 Ezekiel 40:16, 38 Ezekiel 40:38 comp. verses 26 Ezekiel 40:26, 31 Ezekiel 40:31, 34 Ezekiel 40:34, 37 Ezekiel 40:37. The ancient versions sometimes render it posts, sometimes columns; Aquila κρίωμα, as if ram’s-horn-work, i.e. the volutes of columns, especially those of the Corinthian order, elsewhere called κριός; see the copious remarks in Thes. p.43-45. As to the etymology, it is either prop. a projection, prominence, Borfprung, from the root אוּל No. 3, or else, following Aquila, we must regard אַיִל prop. as denoting the capitals of columns, so called from the volutes resembling ram’s horns; hence applied to the whole post or column. Comp. אֵילָם.
