دَلَجَ, (Ṣ, L, Ḳ,) aor. ـُ (Ṣ, L) and ـِ, (L,) inf. n. دُلُوجٌ, He transferred the bucket from the mouth of the well to the watering-trough, to empty it therein: (Ṣ, Ḳ:) or he took the bucket, when it came forth, and went with it whithersoever he pleased. (TA.) One says also, هُوَ يَدْلُجُ بِالدَّلْوِ and يَدْجُلُ بِهَا: the latter verb being formed by transposition. (Fr, TA in art. دجل.)
And He transferred the milk, when the camels had been milked, to the [large bowls called] جِفَان. (Ḳ.)
ادلج, (inf. n. إِدْلَاجٌ, Mṣb, TA,) He journeyed from the beginning of the night: andاِدَّلَجَ↓ he journeyed from the latter part of the night: (Th, Ṣ, Ḳ:) or the former signifies he journeyed all the night: and↓ the latter, he journeyed in the latter part of the night: (A, Mṣb, TA:) or the former, he journeyed in the night, at any hour from the beginning to the end thereof: (Th, from Aboo-Suleymán El-Aarábee:) or, accord. to El-Fárisee,↓ both these verbs are syn., and each bears the first and second of the significations given above: IDrst contends against the assertions of those who make a difference between them, and affirms them to be syn., and to signify he journeyed in the night, at any time, in the beginning or middle or end thereof: therefore, he says, their signification is restricted, in several examples, by the context; and hence, he adds, the appellation مُدْلِجٌ given to a hedgehog: (TA:) [agreeably with this explanation,] ʼAlee says,
* اِصْبِرْ عَلَى السَّيْرِ وَالإِدْلَاجِ فِى السَّحَرِ *
[Endure thou with patience travelling, and journeying in the night, in the period a little before daybreak]. (MF.) [See another ex. voce أَصْبَحَ.]
