Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שֶׁלֶט , only plur. שְׁלָטִים constr. שִׁלְטֵי m. a shield, apparently so called from its hardness (see the signification of the Arabic root, and the n. שַׁלִּיט), 2 Samuel 8:7, שִׁלְטֵי הַזָּהָב “shields of gold;” 2 Kings 11:10; 2 Chronicles 23:9; Song of Solomon 4:4; Ezekiel 27:11 (in which passages, shields are mentioned as hung for ornament on the walls). Jeremiah 51:11, “sharpen the weapons הַשְּׁלָטִים מִלְאוּ fill the shields,” i.e. cover the body with the shield. Interpreters long doubted as to the meaning of this word, some rendered it quivers (as after Jarchi, Jo. Jahn, Archæol., ii. 2, page 428), or darts, compare سِلطُ an arrow. The signification which I have given is that, which, from Kimchi onwards, has been most approved, and it is confirmed by the probable etymology, by the context of the cited passages, and by the authority of ancient versions. Thus the Targum and Syriac often retain the same word as being used in Aramean. The Targum on the Chron. in two places (1 Chronicles 18:7; 2 Chronicles 23:9) render shields, that on Jeremiah (13:23 ) uses the words שִׁלְטֵי רִקְמָתֵיהּ in speaking of the leopard with spots in form resembling a shield. In the later Syriac this word appears to have fallen into disuse, for Bar Bahlûl in Lex. Oxon. MS., under the word ܫܠ̈ܛܙ fluctuates himself between the various opinions of Syriac interpreters (most of whom render it quivers).
