Easton's Bible Dictionary

Selah:

a word frequently found in the Book of Psalms, and also in Hab. 3:9, 13, about seventy-four times in all in Scripture. Its meaning is doubtful. Some interpret it as meaning "silence" or "pause;" others, "end," "a louder strain," "piano," etc. The LXX. render the word by daplasma i.e., "a division."

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary

Selah:

the end; a pause

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Selah:

This word, which is found only in the poetical books of the Old Testament, occurs seventy‐one times in the Psalms and three times in Habakkuk. It is probably a term which had a meaning in the musical nomenclature of the Hebrews, though what that meaning may have been is now a matter of pure conjecture (Gesenius and Ewald and others think it has much the same meaning as our interlude,-a pause in the voices singing, while the instruments perform alone.)

CONTENT DISCLAIMER:

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
