Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

טָמָה i.q. טָמֵא; at least some of the forms of this verb follow the analogy of verbs לה֞. So

Niphal נִטְמֵתֶם Leviticus 11:43, and Job 18:3, נִטְמִינוּ בְּעֵינֵכֶם “we are unclean in your eyes,” i.e. impious, compare Job 14:4. Some, however, of the Hebrew interpreters, without violence to the parallelism, take טָמָה to be the same as טְמַם, אָטַם to be stopped up, i.e. to be stupid. Vulg. sorduimus.
