3. The leaf of a book. So deleth in Jer.36.23 kjv.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

lef, levz: Used in three different senses, with reference:

(1) To trees (`aleh, "a coming up"), Ge 3:7; 8:11; Le 26:36 (Tereph); Eze 17:9; phullon. Figuratively

(a) of spiritual blessings (Eze 47:12; compare Re 22:2) and prosperity (Ps 1:3);

(b) of moral decay (Isa 64:6), and

(c) of a formal, empty profession (Mt 21:19).

(2) To a book (deleth), Jer 36:23 (margin "columns"; see 36:2); as the parchment was gradually unfolded the successive columns could be read.

(3) To doors (tsela`, "side," qela`,"a screen," "hanging"), 1Ki 6:34. The door of the Holy Place consisted of two halves, but each half had two leaves (compare Eze 41:24).
