Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

יָהַד a secondary verb, denom. from יְהוּד.

Hithpael, הִתְיַהֵד pr. to make one’s self a Jew, i.e. to embrace the Jewish religion, Esther 8:17. The letter Yod, which, in the noun is a servile, becomes a radical; as in קֶשֶׁת from קוֹשׁ, and from this again is formed ܘܰܫܛܶ; بسمل from بسم الله; see more instances of this kind in Reisk ad Abulf., Ann. ii. 510.

[“So Arab. هَادَ to become a Jew, from هُودُ for يَهوُدُ Kor. ii. 59; lxii. 6; Conj. II. to make a Jew.” Thes.]
