The meaning of Selah in the psalms

*

Selah is an untranslated Hebrew word of uncertain meaning found in the Psalms.

My impression is that Selah means something like "Reflect on this" - or more prosaically "Think about it!".

This would fit with the notion that the chanting of the psalm may have been interrupted at this point by a 'harp' stroke.

Any other bright ideas what it means?
