Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

עָלַע a root of very doubtful authority, which has been regarded as the same as לוּעַ to swallow down, to suck in; and hence has been derived fut. Piel יְעַלְעוּ they trill suck in, Job 39:30. But I suspect the true reading may be לעלעו (י being changed into ל, a letter of the same form only larger), i.e. לַעְלְעוּ (or לֶעִלְעוּ) they sip up eagerly, pret. Pilel (a form frequently used to indicate rapid motion).
