The verb הות (hut) means to shout at, assail or even break into. It also exists in Arabic with the meaning of to shout at or threaten. This verb is part of a small group of verbs that lend themselves to a certain form in which the root's final consonant is duplicated. Our verb occurs only once in the Bible and in this funny form, namely in Psalm 62:4, where our word has become תהותתו (thwttw).
