Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

נָלָה a root of uncertain authority, which is supposed to signify the same as the Arab. نال Med. Ye, to finish, to procure (see Schult. Opp. Min. page 276, 277). Hence then is deduced

Hiphil, Isaiah 33:1, כַּנְלֹתְךָ (Dag. f. euphon.) for כְּהַנְלֹתְךָ (which Cod. Kenn. 4. gives as a gloss), when thou shalt finish or make an end, i.e. leave off. Another trace of this root is supposed to be found in the form מִנְלָם Job 15:29 which, however, is not less uncertain (see מִנְלֶה ); especially as in the Phœnicio-Shemitic languages there exists no root beginning with the letters נל (which, in Arabic, are incompatible. My own opinion is, that we ought to read with Lud. Capellus ככלתך = כְּכַלּוֹתְךָ when thou shalt make an end [let it be remembered that this is only a conjecture]; compare the synonyms הָתֵם and כִּלָּה standing in near connection, Daniel 9:24.
