Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition


(1) fut. יַחֲלשׁ to prostrate, to vanquish, Exodus 17:13 followed by עַל Isaiah 14:12 like the Germ. fiegen über. (Arab. حَلَسَ to prostrate, حَلسُِ manful, brave). Hence חֲלוּשָׁה.

(2) fut. יֶחֱלַשׁ intrans. to be weak, to waste away, to be frail, properly to be prostrated; Job 14:10. (Syr. Ethpael, to be weakened, ܚܰܠܳܫܐܳ weak.)
