🔼The name Peullethai in the Bible
🔼Etymology of the name Peullethai
The name Peullethai consists of two elements. The base of our name comes from the verb פעל (pa'al), meaning to do, and, more specifically, is probably a variant of the noun פעלה (pe'ulla), meaning either work or deed:
The letter י (yod) upon which our name ends, may either create an adjective (Effortful), a possessive form (my Deed/Reward), or may be a remnant of יה (Yah), which is short for יהוה, which is the name YHWH, or Yahweh.
For a meaning of the name Peullethai, both NOBSE Study Bible Name List and Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names go with the final yod as remnant of the name YHWH. NOBSE translates our name with Reward Of Yahweh and Jones reads Wages Of The Lord. BDB Theological Dictionary does not offer an explanation of our name but does list it under the verb פעל (pa'al), meaning to do.
