נָסַס i.q. מָסַס to pine away, to be sick (Syr. ܢܣܰ Ethpa. id. ܢܣܺܣܐܳ sick. Compare Hebr. נוּשׁ, אָנַשׁ). Isaiah 10:18, כִּמְסֹס נֹסֵס “as a sick man pines away” [But a very good sense is given in English version, in which it is taken as from the following].
II. נָסַס not used in Kal, i.q. נָשָׂא [“Arabic نَصَّ”] prop. to lift up, to exalt; whence נֵס.
Hithpael, Zechariah 9:16, “they shall be (as) אַבְנֵי נֵזֶר מִתְנוֹסְסוֹת עַל־אדְמָתוֹ the stones of a diadem lifting themselves up in his land.” But הִתְנוֹסֵס Psalms 60:6, is from the root נוּס.
