Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שָׁיָה an uncertain root, to which apparently may be referred fut. apoc. תֶּ֑שִׁי (of the form וַיֶּהִ֑ר), Deuteronomy 32:18. LXX. ἐγκατέλιπες. Vulg. dereliquisti; in the other hemistich וַתִּשְׁכַּח (hast forgotten). Apparently שָׁיָה signifies the same as שָׁהָה, سها to forget, to neglect; whence سَهْوُ want of care, ה between two vowels being changed into י, as is often done, compare צָהָה and צָיָה, פָּהָה and פָּיָה, זָהָה and زَيَّى to adorn, نهأ and نيأ to be raw (flesh); also יְיֵטִיב for יְהֵיטִיב; and also compare the same change of the letter א in דָּאָה, דַּיָּה (vulture), ܩܳܐܡܶ, ܩܳܝܡܐܳ; unless תֶּשִׁי be rather taken from the verb שָׁהָה itself, as if contracted from תֶּשְׁהִי (for תִּשְׁהֶה, compare תֶּמְחִי Jeremiah 18:23, for תִּמְחֶה), compare זִו for זְהִיו. Others have less appropriately compared Arab. سوى IV. to omit (prop. to lay aside, ben Seite legen); for the root سوى answers to the Heb. שָׁוָה, שִׁוָּה.
