Roots

The alledged Indo-European “root” of PAUSE (stop) is paus. Latin pausa is a stopping.

אפס EPHe$ (end, extremity– see   PHASE OUT) is a cessation in space, not time.  So we reverse the Samech-Phey to get   סוף $OAPH – an end, or to cease (Ecclesiastes 3:11).


Branches

Pah$ is a physical end or extremty, the hand in Daniel 5:5.  PS/SP  connects to  Latin pes (foot) , Greek pous (foot, Hindi paisa (foot), etc., so that bodily extremities ad temporal ones meet in the end – see PACE.     The listed cognates are COMPOSE, DIAPAUSE, PESADE and REPOSE. A Polish pause is a  pauza.

German Zipf el ( tip, point, end) is a non-reversed   סוף   $OAPH, with a mild fricative shift. Similarly. Cantonese sivfai means “tip,” and Proto Polynesian sope means “last” and “by and by” (in the end, סוף סוף   or לבסוף ).


Bible Verses

Ecclesiastes 3:11 את־הכל עשׂה יפה בעתו גם את־העלם נתן בלבם מבלי אשׁר לא־ימצא האדם את־המעשׂה אשׁר־עשׂה האלהים מראשׁ ועד־סוף׃

“He hath made everything beautiful in its time; also He hath set the world in their heart, yet so that man cannot find out the work that God hath done from the beginning even to the end.”
