“Selah” found ONLY in OT of the Holy Bible (KJV)


SelahSelah (/ˈsiːlə(h)/; Hebrew: סֶלָה, also transliterated as selāh) is a word used 74 times in the Hebrew Bible—seventy-one times in the Psalms and three times in the Book of Habakkuk. … Alternatively, selah may mean “forever,” as it does in some places in the liturgy (notably the second to last blessing of the Amidah).
Selah may indicate a break in the song whose purpose is similar to that of amen  . . . . . .
