Comments for SELAH:

Pronounced Sea-La.

It is pronounced Say-la. It is a Christian musical group, but in the book of Psalms it is meant to be an indicator for the reader to stop and weigh what was just said and think on it. Pause and reflect. I've never heard it described anywhere as an American Indian name (and I've done some research on this since this is my daughters name). This beautiful name gives an instant indicator as to how versed a person is. It also gives an awesome opportunity to evangalize your faith. I get really irritated when people pronounce it SEE-la.

According to the Webster's Dictionary and Dictionary.com, it's pronounced SEE-lah.

The Hebrew (that is, the original) pronunciation is seh-lah. SAY-lah and SEE-lah are both more recent Christian pronunciations.

My name is Selah and I pronounce it Sell-uh, as is the original Hebrew way.

Alright this conversation was interesting me, But my name is Selah. I pronounce it SEE-lah. I did a lot of research on it when my dad told me it was in the bible. It says the definition of it is "Amen" or "the ending to a passage or prayer".
