Roots

HOLD sounds like it is about grasping; that which is HELD, as in HELD UP, is what the HOLDING is about.  Old English healdan (to HOLD, retain) and German haltan (to stop, hold back) are linked to Indo-European kel (to drive, set in swift motion. "Hypothetical base of various loosely connected derivatives"), קל    QahL (swift) is a KL etymon  – see  ACCELERATE

Nothing is "loosely connected" in the Hebrew language.  [K]HaDaL is to cease or stop (Genesis18:11) and  [K]HeDeL means cessation or the earth (where mortal man is HELD). The HDL → HLD anagram atop this entry is [K]HeLeD (the span of life, the world). Stopping, containment (HOLDING) and temporality is the issue, as seen in Psalms39:6 -

"You have made my life just handbreaths long;

its span is as nothing in Your sight..."


Branches

HALT, HALTER and HALTING are related. The opposite of HALT or stop is to start. A slight rescrambling of the terms above produces Tahf-Het-Lamed, as in (B[)T[K]HeeYLaH --- which means “in the beginning” in Genesis 13:3. The first phrase of Genesis does NOT mean this.   German standhalden (hold one’s ground)is from the same M132   metathesis of חדל   [K]HaDahL (cease) – but no S-D is needed, as at the HALT entry.

See CLOT.
