Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

כָּלָא

(1)  to close, to shut up, Jeremiah 32:2, Jeremiah 32:3 Psal. 88:9. Intrans. to be closed, Haggai 1:10.

(2) to restrain, to hold in, Numbers 11:28; Ecclesiastes 8:8 Psal. 40:10 followed by מִן from doing anything, 1 Samuel 25:33; Psalms 119:101 followed by מִן of pers. to withhold something from some one, to prohibit in respect to anything, Genesis 23:6; Psalms 40:12 comp. Haggai 1:10. (Ch., Syr. כְּלָא ܟܠܳ, Eth. ከልእ፡ to prohibit, Arab. كأا to guard, II. to prohibit, to restrain. This root is also very widely extended in the western languages, in the signification of shutting up: κλείω, κλείς, κλήϊς, κλαΐς, clavis, claudo; in the signification of prohibiting: κωλύω, κολούω, κολάζω, Compare also celo, occulo.)

Niphal, to be shut up, restrained, Genesis 8:2; Exodus 36:6.

The forms are often borrowed from the cognate verb כָּלָה, which see; as כְּלִתִנִי 1 Samuel 25:33, כָּלוּ 1 Samuel 6:10, יִכְלֶה Genesis 23:6, and כָּלִאתִי Psalms 119:101. On the other hand, כַּלֵּא Daniel 9:24, inf. Piel is for כַּלֵּה or כַּלּוֹת (Lehrg. page 418).
