2255     שִׂיַח (śı̂aḥ) I, meditate, muse, commune, speak, complain. Denominative verb.

Parent Noun

2255a     שִׂיַח (śı̂aḥ) meditation, complaint.

2255b     שִׂיחָה (śı̂ḥb) meditation, prayer.

2255c     שֵַׂח (śēaḥ) thought (Amos 4:13).

The basic meaning of this verb seems to be rehearse, repent, or go over a matter in ones mind. This meditation or contemplation may be done either inwardly or outwardly. Since English differentiates these two notions, the word is usually rendered meditate, or talk.

In the first instance it is used of silent reflection on Gods works (Ps 77:8 [H 7]; 9:12 [H 11]), and Gods word (Ps 119:15, 23, 27, 48, 78, 148). In the second instance it is used of rehearsing aloud Gods works (I Chr 16:9; Ps 105:2; 145:15). If the subject, however, is painful, it is translated to complain (Ps 53:17 [H 18]; Job 7:11). One can talk disparagingly (Ps 69:12 [H 13]).

The word functions as the key word in Ps 77. Here the Psalmist transfers his complaint (v. 3 [H 4]) based on a contemplation (v. 6 [H 7]) of Gods absence in contrast to his past deeds precisely by meditating or talking of Gods deeds.

In Prov 6:22 the son who has bound his fathers teaching to his heart will find that the teaching, in turn, will talk with him.

שִׂיַח (śı̂aḥ). Meditation, complaint, communication, talking, prayer, babbling. This noun appears fourteen times in the ot. It is derived from the verb with essentially the same meanings, namely, meditation (Ps 104:34; I Kgs 18:27, marg.); complaint (I Sam 1:16; Job 7:13); talking (I Kgs 18:27); communication (II Kgs 9:11); prayer (Ps 64:1 [H 2]); and babbling (Prov 23:29). Proverbs 23:29, Who hath babbling? may also be translated, Who hath troublesome-meditations? The idea of the translation of the KJV, babbling, is cause-for-continual-outward-complaining.

סִיחָה (sı̂ḥb). Meditation, prayer, devotion. This word appears only three times in the ot. Each time it represents pious meditation, e.g. in Ps l 19:97 the Psalmist exults in his love for Gods Law and declares, It is my meditation all the day!
