Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament ScripturesGesenius: מָשַׁל (H4910 in 17 WLC links below)
(1) to make like, to assimilate (Arab. مشل Aram. ܡܬܠܰ id.) see Niph. Hiph. and the noun מָשָׁל similitude, parable, etc. hence-(a) to put forth a parable, Eze 24:3.-(b) to use a proverb, Eze 12:23 Eze 17:2 Eze 18:2 , Eze 18:3.-(c) to sing a song of derision, Joe 2:17. Part. משְׁלִים poets, Num 21:27.
(2) to rule, to have dominion, Jos 12:2 Pro 12:24 followed by בְּ of the thing ruled over, Gen 3:16 Gen 4:7 more rarely followed by עַל Pro 28:15 followed by a gerund, to have power of doing anything, Exo 21:8. With a dat. of benefit, Isa 40:10, זְרֹעֹו משְׁלָה לֹו “his arm ruleth for him.” Sometimes i.q. to be over anything, Gen 24:2. Part. משֵׁל lord, ruler, Gen 45:8 plur. lords, rulers, princes, and in a bad sense tyrants, Isa 14:5 Isa 28:14 Isa 49:7 Isa 52:5 compare נְדִיבִים Isa 13:2.
Learned men have made many attempts to reconcile the significations of making like, and ruling; see Schultens on Pro 1:1 Michaëlis on Lowth, De Sacra Poësi, p.41; Simonis in Lex. etc. However I have no doubt but that from the signification of making like, is derived that of judging, forming an opinion (compare דִּמָּה, and Eth. መሰለ፡ to think, to suppose, to think fit), which is nearly allied to the notion of giving sentence, ordering, ruling (compare טַעַם). Another explanation, approved of by Winer in Lex. p. 585, was given in my smaller Lexicon, editt. 2 and 3, but this is decidedly better. This notion of ruling, which is not found in this root in the other Phœnicio-Shemitic languages [except the Phœnician] seems to have passed over to the Greek, in which βασιλεύς, βασιλεύω has no root in that language.
Piel, i.q. Kal No. 1, a, to use parables, Eze 21:5.
(1) to compare, Isa 46:5.
Hithpael, i.q. Niphal, to become like, followed by בְּ Job 30:19.
Derived nouns, מִמְשָׁל, מֶמְשֶׁלֶת, and those which immediately follow.
