Does anyone know a Jewish interpretation of "selah" in the psalms? Literally it seems to mean something about basket or hanging, but I don't know how this works into psalms.
Jewish sites say it may mean "forever", or "certainly" or even that it is a non-sense word like "Yahoo" or "Yeehah". Non-Jewish sites have it meaning musical direction. Thanks to anyone with insights or answers.
Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, z'tl, made a case for the psalms being primarily meditative exercises. Could Selah be some sort of Kabbalistic device?
