Selah: a word intended to note as a pause to reflect. It’s a verb- something that requires action from the reader. It’s quite interesting to note where the author uses this word throughout the Psalms (also found in Habakkuk). Also to note, the Psalms were not only meant to be read, but sung and Selah indicates a place of pause of rest. Reading aside, how much do we need to practice the art of Selah? Pausing, resting, meditating. It’s a "life" verb we need to use more often.
Disclaimer- the NIV version does not use Selah within the actual text but in the footnotes.
Also a quick tip, if you want something to stick out of your Bible, like the top of my fern here, but don’t want it messed up, cover the edges with packing tape! No more worries!
