Question
Hi what does Aramaic word Elah mean in the books of David and Ezra?

Thanks and hope to hear from you

Alex

Answer
Dear Alex,
There is no Old Testament book called David. The book of Ezra was written in Hebrew.
Elah can mean 'but', 'however', 'except' and possibly other things - - I would need context to answer your question fully. Feel free to clarify your question or ask another one.
Have a great day,
Sheva

Experience

I am an orthodox Jewish woman, but I have had my questions, and always seek answers, so I have a lot of experience in all areas. If I don't know the answer, I'll ask someone who does.
