אזל

The Hebrew verb אזל (azal) means to go away or to go about. Although this verb denotes a single action, it covers a broad pallet of English verbs. It is used as a simple going on with business or going one's way (Proverbs 20:14). Sometimes it means to be exhausted (Deuteronomy 32:36); sometimes it denotes water evaporating (Job 14:11), supplies thinning (1 Samuel 9:7) or a shifting from ally to ally (Jeremiah 2:36). This verb has no extant derivatives (other than the below names).
