Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition


(1) i.q. צָהַר, זָהַר (see at the root צָחַח ), to shine, see Hiphil. It is applied

(2) to an acute and clear voice; hence to neigh as a horse, (Arab. صهل compare הָלַל and צָלַל), Jeremiah 5:8 to shout for joy, to cry out (for joy), used of persons, Isaiah 12:6, 54:1 followed by בְּ because of anything, Isaiah 24:14.

Piel, causat. of Kal No. 2, but in a bad sense, used of a cry from fear or terror. Isaiah 10:30, צַהֲלִי קוֹלֵךְ “make thy voice shrill,” i.e. cry with a loud voice.

Hiphil, causat. of Kal No. 1, to cause to shine, Psalms 104:15.
