 [שָׁכַךְ] verb decrease, abate (Late Hebrew שְׁכִיכָה is allaying of anger; שִׁכֵּךְ אֹזֶן soothe, satisfy the ear (so apparently Dalm), i.e. allow it to hear and understand, compare Levy NHWB (and Arabic be narrow have small ears, be deaf, Frä90); — Arabic see humble oneself, Wahrm humiliate); —

Qal Imperfect 3 masculine plural וַיָּשֹׁכוּ Genesis 8:1 the waters abated; Infinitive construct כְּשֹׁךְ Esther 2:1 when abated the king's wrath, so Perfect 3 feminine singular שָׁכָ֑כָה Esther 7:10. — כְּשַׁךְ יְקוּשִׁים Jeremiah 5:26 usually like the bending, crouching, of fowlers (this meaning for שַׁךְ dubious; Dr כְּשֻׁר Du strike out ישׁור כשׁ, then reads יִלְכֹּדוּ׃׳מוֺקְשִׁים הִצִּיבוּ בַּשַּׁחַת א).

Hiph`il Perfect 1 singular consecutive וַהֲשִׁכֹּתִ֫י מֵעָלַי Numbers 17:20 I will allay from upon me the murmurings (accusative), etc.
