Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֵלֶם m. silence, Psalms 58:2, הַאֻמְנָם אֵלֶם צֶדֶק תְּדַבֵּרוּן “do ye indeed speak out the silence of justice?” i.e. do ye indeed use justice which seems to be silent and mute in your decrees? [“So commonly; but it may be worth inquiry whether אֵלֶם should not be dropped, having sprung perhaps from a careless repetition of אמנם.” This conjecture is wholly needless. (“Maurer gives to אֵלֶם the signification of league, law, from the sense of binding; as عَقْدُ league, from עָקַד to bind.”) Ges. add.] Psalms 56:1, יוֹנַת אֵלֶם רְחֹקִים “the dumb dove among foreigners” (i.e. perhaps the people of Israel in exile, comp. הּוֹד Psalms 74:19), the title of a poem, to the tune of which Psa 56:1-13 was sung. Comp. my remarks on the word אַיֶלֶת.
