σιωπή, a moment of absolute stillness, after the wails had subsided. Job iv. 15 “"Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair of my flesh stood up. It stood still, but I could not discern the appearance thereof; a form was before mine eyes: there was silence, and I heard a voice."


πρὶν δή τις ἀδύτων ἐκ μέσων ἐφθέγξατο
δεινόν τι καὶ φρικῶδες
