Niph`al Imperfect 2 masculine singular suffix תִּנָּשֵׁנִי Isaiah 44:21 thou shalt not be forgotten of me, but dubious; Ges§ 117* תִּנְשֵׁנִי (Qal); Che Hpt תִּטְּשֵׁנִי (compare Deuteronomy 32:15).

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

נָשָׁה to forget a thing, Lamentations 3:17 a person, i.e. to desert, to neglect him, Jeremiah 23:39. (Arab. نَسِىَ Eth. quadril. ናሕሰየ፡ with the insertion of ח id.)

Niphal, to be forgotten, Isaiah 44:21, לֹא תִנָּשֵׁנִי “thou shalt not be forgotten by me,” for תִּנָּשֶׁה לִי. Kimchi, תִּנָּשֶׁה מִמֶּנִּי. But the Targ. and Yarchi would make Niphal to be the same as Kal, and thus would render “lest thou shouldest forget me;” had this been the meaning it would probably have been אַל תּ׳, not לֹא.

Piel, to cause to forget, followed by two acc., Genesis 41:51.

Hiphil, הִשָּׁה i.q. Piel, Job 39:17, “God has made it (the ostrich) to forget wisdom.” Job 11:6, “know כִּייַשֶּׁה לְךָ אֱוֹהַּ מֵעֲוֹנֶךָ that God has caused to forget for thee a part of thy iniquity;” i.e. has remitted to thee part of thy iniquity.

(2) to lend to any one, an iemanden leihen.

(a) followed by בְּ of pers.
