גִּיל Strong’s #1523 giyl

That I may show forth all thy praise. In the gates of the daughter of Zion I will rejoice in thy salvation.

Psalm 9:14

A very common song from the book of Psalms is This is the day which the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it (118:24). “Rejoice” is an abstract word, a Greek form of thought. The Hebrew word giyl, translated as “rejoice” in the above verse, is related to other Hebrew words like galgal (Strongs #1534) meaning “a wheel,” galal (Strongs #1556) meaning “to roll” and galiyl (Strongs #1550) meaning “a turning.” Each of these words is related to “going around in a circle.” From a Hebraic concrete perspective “rejoicing,” giyl, means “to spin around in circles.”
