נָסַק fut. יִסַּק, once found Psalms 139:8, to ascend. This root, if it can be so called, is of frequent use in Syriac and Chald., but only in the fut. imp. and inf. Kal (ܢܣܩ, ܣܩ, ܡܣܩ), and in Conj. Aph. (ܐܣܩ); in the other forms, pret. and part. Pe., and Conj. Ethp. they use the verb ܣܠܶܩ, so that the first radical Nun never appears. And, indeed, such a root פ֞ן seems never to have existed; and it may have been rightly remarked by Castell (who has been undeservedly blamed for it by J. D. Michaëlis, Lex. Syr. p. 600), that יִסַּק, ܢܶܣܰܩ and אַסֵּק, ܐܣܩ are contraced from יִסְלַק, אַסְלֵק. Other instances of words so contracted that the former of two consonants is doubled, are מַתַּתְיָה, מַתַּתָּה; قدر commonly قدّ see Caussin, p. 12, etc. Properly, therefore, this root נָסַק should be excluded from Lexicons.
