The term “selah” is found 18 times in 9 psalms of our study. We don’t exactly know what it means, but it includes the concepts of pausing to praise, or waiting, or reflecting, or quieting yourself in God’s presence.
For Bible Quizzing purposes, the question is most often whether it is pronounced “SEE-lah” or “SAY-lah.” Either pronunciation will be accepted.
As you quote this year, I encourage you not to just say the word, “selah,” but to obey it’s command. Pause, reflect, quiet yourself in His presence. In those moments, let the richness of the Word settle a little deeper, and you’ll experience it the way David intended.
