My response above was to Rooster’s question as to why I was asking for input from our LSC members.
Again, here is his question:
"Perhaps Wendell had another reason for asking though?"
No, there is no other reason than the one I have given in the above posting.
I do value clarity before agreement or disagreement.
Selah is a word of unknown meaning - used to close a message.
Answer: The word selah is found in two books of the Bible, but is most prevalent in the Psalms, where it appears 71 times. It also appears three times in the third chapter of the minor prophet Habakkuk.
Selah is also thought to be rendered from two Hebrew words: s_lah, “to praise”; and s_lal, “to lift up.” Another commentator believes it comes from salah, “to pause.”
