Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גָּלָה fut. יִגְלֶה with Vav convers. וַיִּגֶל prop. to be naked, and trans. to make naked (kindred to the root גָּלַח to be naked; hence, to be bald, whence, by a softer pronunciation, גָּלַהּ, גָּלָה); especially used of the ear by taking away the hair, of the face by taking away a veil (Arab. جل ا to cast away a garment, to cast away a vail and make bare a woman’s face; metaph. to uncover anything). In the usage of the Hebrew language

(1) to make naked; hence, to disclose, reveal, to uncover; especially in the phrase גָּלָה אֹזֶן פ׳ to make bare, to uncover any one’s ear by taking away the hair, as done by those who are about to disclose some secret thing; hence to certify of anything, to disclose a matter; 1 Samuel 20:2, “my father will not do anything וְלֹא יִגְלֶהאֶת־אָזְנִי but he will disclose it to me,” verses 12 1 Samuel 20:12, 13 1 Samuel 20:13, 9:15 22:8, 17 1 Samuel 20:17. Elsewhere used, in a sense a little different, of God, Job 36:10, “he opens their ears to instruction;” verse 15 Job 36:15, 33:16. Hence it is applied גָּלָה סוֹד to reveal a secret, Amos 3:7; Proverbs 20:19. It is also said, גָּלָה סֵפֶר to disclose, to unfold a book, ein Buch auffchlagen, Jeremiah 32:11, 14 Jeremiah 32:14.

(2) to make a land naked of inhabitants, i.e. to emigrate (Arabic جل ا and جلى id.), and that whether willingly, 2 Samuel 15:19 or unwillingly, i.e. to be led into exile, 2 Kings 17:23, 24:14 25:21 Amos 1:5, 6:7, etc; used of inanimate things, Isaiah 24:11, “the joy of the land is gone away,” is exiled; Job 20:28; Proverbs 27:25.

Niphal.
