נָמַל a root of doubtful authority as a verb; of which, all the forms that occur, may be referred (I might almost say ought to be referred) to the roots מָלַל and מוּל. From the root מָלַל No. II, to cut off, to be cast off, is the fut. יִמַּל, יִמָּלוּ, see this root, p. 479, A and to the Niph. of the same, perhaps we should refer נְמַלְתֶּם (for נְמַלֹּתֶם) “ye shall be cut off,” i.e. circumcised, Genesis 17:11 (which is commonly taken for Pret. Kal, of the root נָמַל to be circumcised). To the root מוּל undoubtedly belongs pret. Niph. נִמּוֹל i.q. נָמוֹל to be circumcised, Genesis 17:26, 27 Genesis 17:27 part. נִמֹּלִים 24:22. Compare מִשּׁוֹט and מָשׁוֹט, מַשֻּׁאוֹת for מְשֻׁאוֹת and the observations on that word. From this root, however, there is the noun
