יָעַל unused in Kal

(1)  to ascend on high, to rise above; kindred to עָלָה. (Arab. وَعَلَ to rise above. V. to ascend a mountain, to stand on the summit, وَعْلُ a noble, a prince.) Hence יָעֵל ibex.

(2) to excel, to be useful, compare יַעַל in the compound word בְּלִיַּעַל.

Hiphil הוֹעִיל

Followed by dat. of pers. Isaiah 30:5; Jeremiah 23:32 or of the thing. Job 30:13, לְהַיָּתִי יֹעִילוּ “they help my fall;” with suff. יוֹעִילוּךְ Isaiah 57:12.

(2) intrans. to be benefitted, to receive help from any thing. Job 21:15, מַה־נּוֹעִיל “what should we be benefitted (in this thing)?” 15:3, “words לֹא יוֹעִיל בָּם in which there is no profit;” 35:3 Isaiah 47:12, 48:17. Hence
