Selah

Habakkuk 3:3,9,13
A term occurring in Habakkuk 3:3, 9, 13, and many times in the Psalms. There have been various suggestions as to its meaning, but its signification is not really known. The Targum mostly renders the word “forever.” The LXX has διάψαλμα, denoting, as some think, “a pause, a break or rest.” “Pause, consider,” is perhaps its signification.
