Dr. Ashley Lyon is a new member of the Israel Bible Center faculty. Today we talk about her work on rare Hebrew word like "selah". This word is often associate with the Psalms, but many Bible translations leave the word untranslated because we do not know exactly what it meant in its original context. Selah may indicate a break in the song, like a musical notation to indicate a pause. Selah may be a word that has the weight of agreement, like saying Amen. This week Dr. Lyon talks about her work to uncover the word's meaning.
