 אֲרוּ interjection lo (of uncertain derivation: only Biblical Aramaic (? Nabataean, see CIS ii. 186); אֲלוּ, and Late Hebrew הֲרֵי see! Here! Ab Daniel 3:4 and elsewhere, are perhaps allied), וַאֲרוּ Daniel 7:2 חָוֵי הֲוֵית ֗֗֗ וַאֲרוּ, Daniel 7:5; Daniel 7:6; Daniel 7:7; Daniel 7:13, always in description of a vision (compare אֲלוּ).

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֲרוּ Ch. lo! behold! or rather, see ye, Daniel 7:6,, 13 and with the roughness of the letter ר softened, אֲלוּ (which see), in the Talmud הֲרִי. Several take this word from the Arabic imperative أَرُوا (of the form أُغْزُوا); but they should attend to this, which is of much importance in the matter, that the Arabic imperative of the verb راى is رَوْا. I prefer, therefore, regarding אֲרוּ as being with the letters transposed for רְאוּ. [“Not found in other Chaldee books; but cognate with it are in Ch. and Talmud. הֲרֵי lo! אֲרֵי lo! then for, because (like Ch. הֵן lo! if), and אֲרוּם because; also, Samar. Act 7:1-60 Act 8:1-40 lo! then for, because. This demonstrative force exists elsewhere likewise, both in the syllables אל, הל (see הַל, אֵל, אֵלֶּה, הָלָא, הָלְאָה Arab. ال), and also in אר, הר (compare ܗܳܪܟܳܐ, הַלְכָה, הָכָה here in this place); so that it is hard to say which form is the more ancient and primitive.” Ges. add.]
