Abstract Why has the Aramaic translator rendered the mysterious «sound of subdued silence» (hqd hmmd lwq) in 1 Kgs 19:12 by «the sound of those (= the angels) praising quietly»? It can be that, with the root דמם «to be silent, quiet» in front of him, the meturguman has thought of the synonym I שׁבח «to calm» and from there has «skipped» to the (mainly Aramaic) homonym II שׁבח «to praise». This connection between Mmd and I שׁבח + II שׁבח would thus explain the Aramaic translation, which in its own peculiar way stays quite close to its Hebrew model.
