Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גֹּלֶם [with suffix גָּלְמִי], m. prop. something rolled together; hence, rude and unformed matter, not yet wrought, the parts of which are not yet unfolded and developed. Thus of an embryo, Psalms 139:16. [Rather, of the mystical body of Christ.] (It is often used in the Talmud of anything not yet wrought and developed, see Chelim xii. § 6; and it is applied to an ignorant man, Pirke Aboth v. § 7.)
