לוט

The root-verb לוט (lut) means to wrap closely or to envelop. This verb occurs just a few times. Sometimes it simply denotes the wrapping of an object — the sword of Goliath, whose name, strikingly, comes from a verb meaning to uncover (1 Samuel 21:9). Sometimes it serves to indicate gloom or suppression (Isaiah 25:7).

The verb לוט (lut) yields two derivatives:

  • The masculine noun לט (lat), also spelled לאט (la't), means secrecy (1 Samuel 18:22, Judges 4:21).
  • The masculine noun לוט (lot) means covering. Besides as the name Lot, this noun occurs only in Isaiah 25:7-8.
