פָּלַשׁ an unused root; pr. (as rightly given by Simonis in edit. 1-3, and Kimchi, התגלגל), to roll, to revolve (wälzen); like the kindred roots פָּלַס, פָּלַל (פּוֹל). Hence
Hithpael, to roll oneself, i.e. to wallow in ashes (בָּאֵפֶר), Jeremiah 6:26; Ezekiel 27:30 in dust (עָפָר), Micah 1:10. Absol. id. Jeremiah 25:34.-In former editions I followed the LXX. and Vulg. in giving this root the signification of sprinkling, which has been assented to by Rosenm. and Winer (in Lex. page 776); but I prefer the former, as springing from the internal nature of the root.
פָּלַשׁ (prob. kindred to the verbs פָּלַט, פָּלַת), Æhiop. ፈለሰ፡ to wander, to emigrate, ተፈለሰ፡to wander without any certain abode, ፊላሲ፡a stranger, wanderer. Hence
