Biblical Aramaic

הָא demonstrative particle lo! behold! (Biblical Hebrew H1887 הֵא (twice); Egyptian Aramaic and Têma הא (Cooke193, 198); Targum הָא; Syriac axh; Mandean הא (NöM 81); Arabic هَا in Aramaic also often prefixed to pronoun, 3rd person, for greater definiteness, as Targum הָהוּא, vfh (for hā-hū), see NöM 89 f. WCG 106 f.), Daniel 3:25.
