Halt

“Lame on the feet (Gen. 32:31; Ps. 38:17). To “halt between two” “opinions” (1 Kings 18:21) is supposed by some to be an” “expression used in “allusion to birds, which hop from spray to” “spray, forwards and backwards.” The LXX. render the expression” How long go ye lame on both knees? The Hebrew verb rendered “halt is used of the irregular dance (“leaped upon”) around the” “altar (ver. 26). It indicates a lame, uncertain gait, going now” “in one direction, now in another, in the frenzy of wild leaping.”
