Dear Friends,

  I had a question re: the Aramaic word in Daniel 7:14, 27 (the "son of man" 
passages) that is translated "serve", and also "worship". Unfortunately I do 
not have a Hebrew/Aramaic Lexicon with me at the moment, but I believe the 
word in question is PELACH.This word is associated with rendering divine 
service. My question is as follows: Do any of you know whether PELACH is 
used in any context other than rendering divine service to deities or to the 
Deity? In other words, is this word used in other Aramaic sources such as 
the Targums for rendering service to kings, or dignitaries or is it 
exclusively used in a religious context? Thanks.
