International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)


In the Revised Version (British and American) shalal is generally translated "spoil" (Jud 5:30; 8:24,25; Isa 10:2, etc.), while, conversely, "prey" (noun and verb) is occasionally substituted for "spoil," "booty" (Nu 31:32, ere).

See Booty; Spoil.
