Roots

PLOUGH and PLOW are traced to Late Anglo-Saxon ploh, which is "akin to German pflug ... probably a borrowing from non-Indo-European." Arabic   פלח PaLaK[H]  is a farmer or PLOWBOY."  PHaLK[H]aH is agriculture. Hebrew פלח PaLaK[H] is to "cleave" (the earth) in Psalm141:7. In IIKings4:39 it is rendered to "slice." The dictionary defines this verb as to till or split. As ploughing was agrarian Man’s principle work,  פלח PeLaKH came to mean worshiping as well as tilling. Similarly, PooLKHaN meant spiritual service.

This PLK word (bilabial-liquid-guttural) may  be a better etymon for PRAYER (see above), than Latin precari, to entreat (AHD).  Secularists can only see a self-serving entreaty when one PRAYS, but not any unselfish “service” that includes more praise than pleas.

 A synonym by metahesis is  פעל Pa’GHahL (to do, work, make – Numbers 23:23. The guttural Ayin/GH of  פעל Pa’GHahL  matches the Het of פלח PeLaKH.

Back-breaking labor in the Egyptian slavery is called PHaReKH (Exodus 1:13).

Branches

The PELICAN ( Spanish pelicano), from פלח   PaLaK[H], appears to be “ploughing” the surface of the water as it skims the surface for fish. The animals that actually plough are named for the other Edenic ploghing word – see HORSE.

Reverse פלח Pey-Lamed-Het to get K[H]aLaPH (to pierce).  K[H]aReBH is the blade (of a plow).  QaLaPH is to remove a surface. PooLK[H]aN is service or worship; PaGHaL (swap KH and L) is to act or do – see FACULTY.  WORK and PLUG (work doggedly) are distantly related.

Work, toil in Polish is prac-a; prace is labor, job, and work in Czech. The IE “root” prak (to make do) links the English cognates  PRACTICAL, PRACTICE, PRAGMATIC and PRAXIS.
