The Dictionary of Classical Hebrew lists four homonymn (homograph)
verbs with the form HLL. The word MHLL in Isa 53:5 is from the HLL
that means "be pierced." It is attested at a number of verses, and
the form in Isa 53:5 is a POAL form, which is a passive conjugation
similar to the Pual. It is a masculine singular participle.
>Perhaps anyone would care to discuss the word "pierced" in Isaiah 53?
>Let's talk about the difference between halal, mehulal and meholal,
>and perhaps between "killed" and "pierced."
>Pure grammar, no ideology.
