אוּת a root not used in Kal.
Niphal נָאוֹת 1 pl. fut. נֵאוֹת, 3 pl. יִאִוֹתוּ to consent, 2 Kings 12:9 with a dat. of pers. to consent to any one, Genesis 34:15, 22 Genesis 34:22, 23 Genesis 34:23. In Arabic this power belongs to أَتَى i.q. אָתָה to come, Conj. III. ااتى Heb. אוֹתָה, whence a new root אוֹת appears to have arisen; unless it be better, by changing the points, instead of נֵאוֹת, יֵאוֹתוּ to read נְאוֹת, יְאוֹתוּ, which forms may be referred to Poël of the root אָתָה.
