And سَبَتَتِ اليَهُودُ, (Ṣ, * A, Ḳ,) aor. سَبِتَ (Ṣ, Ḳ) and سَبُتَ, (Ḳ,) inf. n. سَبْتٌ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) The Jews kept, or performed, the ordinances of their سَبْت [or sabbath]: (Ṣ, Ḳ: *) or سَبَتُوا, aor. سَبِتَ (M, Mṣb) and سَبُتَ, (M,) inf. n. سَبْتٌ; (Mṣb;) and
↓اسبتوا; (Ṣ, M, Mṣb;) they entered upon the سَبْت [or sabbath]: (Ṣ, M:) or they (the Jews) ceased from seeking the means of subsistence, and the labouring to acquire gain. (Mṣb.) It is said in the Ḳur [vii. 163], وَيَوْمَ لَا يَسْبِتُونَ And on the day when they were not keeping the ordinances of their سَبْت: (Ṣ:) where some read
↓لا يُسْبِتُونَ, from أَسْبَتَ; and some,

↓سَبَّتَتْهُ, i. q. قَطَعَتْهُ [i. e. The morsel, or gobbet, obstructed, or stopped, my fauces]: but the verb without teshdeed is the more usual. (M, TA.)

[It became cut off, interrupted, put a stop to, or put an end to, or it ceased: meanings indicated in this art. in the M and TA.
] It became extended: (Ḳ:) or long and extended, together with softness. (TA.) It is said in a description of the countenance of the Prophet, (TA,) كَانَ فِى وَجْهِهِ ٱنْسِبَاتٌ There was, in his face, length, and extension. (Ḳ, * TA.)

Ibn Ahmar says,
[And we were, with them, like the night and the day that parted asunder alike, then became one going towards Nejd and one going towards Tihámeh]
* وَكُنَّا وَهُمْ كَٱبْنَىْ سُبَاتٍ تَفَرَّقَا *
* سِوًى ثُمَّ كَانَا مُنْجِدًا وَتَهَامِيَا *
: (Ṣ, Ḳ:)
such, they say, is the meaning: (Ṣ:)
or, as IB says, on the authority of Aboo-Jaạfar Moḥammad Ibn-Habeeb, ابنا سبات

The hides, or skins, of oxen; (M, Ḳ;) whether tanned or not tanned: so some say: (M:) or (so accord. to the M, in the Ḳ and TA “ and, ” but the و is omitted in the CK,) any tanned hide; (Aṣ, AA, M, Ḳ;) said to be so called [because the tanning removes the hair,] from السَّبْتُ, “ the act of shaving: ” (AA, TA:) or such. as is tanned with قَرَظ [q. v.]: (M, Ḳ:) or only ox-hides tanned: so says AḤn on the authority of As and AZ: (TA:) or ox-hides tanned with قَرَظ, (Ṣ, Mgh,) whereof are made [the sandals called]
↓نِعَالٌ سِبْتيَّةٌ: (Ṣ) these are hence thus called: (Mgh:) they are sandals having no hair upon them: (M, Mṣb:) or sandals tanned with قرَظ: (AA, TA:) accord. to Az, they are thus called because their hair has been shaven off (سُبِتَ, i. e. حُلِقَ,) and removed by a wellknown process in tanning, (Mgh, * TA,) so that they are soft; and they are of the sandals of people that lead a life of ease and softness: (Mgh:) IAạr says that they are thus called because of their having become soft by the tanning: accord. to this, they should be called
↓سَبْتِيَّة; and so accord. to a saying of EdDáwoodee, that they are called in relation to سُوقُ السَّبْتِ [“ the Market of the Sabbath ”]: it is also said that they are called in relation to the
↓سُبْت, with damm, which is a plant used for tanning therewith; so that they should be called
↓سُبْتِيَّة, unless the appellation be an instance of a rel. n. deviating from its source of derivation [or unless this plant be also termed سِبْتٌ, as it is accord. to a copy of the M]: (TA:) see سُبْتٌ. It is related of the Prophet, that he saw a man walking among the graves wearing his sandals, and said, يَا صَاحِبَ السِّبْتَينِ اِخْلَعْ سِبْتَيْكَ [meaning (tropical:) O wearer of the pair of sandals of سِبْت, pull off thy pair of sandals of سِبْت]: (Ṣ, * TA:) and accord. to the A, they are thus termed tropically: it is like the saying “ Such a one wears wool, and cotton, and silk; ” meaning “ garments made thereof; ” as is said in the Nh: but, as some relate it, what he said was,
↓يَا صَاحِبَ السِّبْتِيَّيْنِ, the last of these words being a rel. n.; and thus it is found in the handwriting of Az, in his book. (TA.)

(El-Jawáleeḳee, TA.)

, with kesr, Foolish, stupid, or of little sense; (Ḳ, TA;) confounded, or perplexed, and unable to see his right course; without understanding. (TA.)
primarily signifies Rest [like سَبْتٌ]: (Ṣ, Mṣb:) and hence, sleep: (Ṣ, Ḳ:) or heavy sleep: (Mṣb:) or sleep that is hardly perceptible (خَفِىّ, M, Ḳ, [in some copies of the Ḳ, as mentioned by Freytag, خَفِيف, i. e. light,]), like a swoon: (M:) or the commencement of sleep in the head [and its continuance] until it reaches the heart: (Th, M, Ḳ:) or the sleep of one who is sick; i. e. light sleep: (TA:) and
↓سَبْتٌ signifies the same as سُبَاتٌ. (T, TA.) Hence, in the Ḳur [lxxviii. 9, and in like manner the word is used in xxv. 49], وَجَعَلْنَا نَوْمَكُمْ سُبَاتًا; (Ṣ;) i. e. قَطْعًا; as though a man, when he slept, were cut off from [the rest of] mankind: (IAạr, TA:) or سبات is when one is cut off, or ceases, from motion, while the soul still remains in the body; i. e., the text means, And we have made your sleep to be rest unto you: (Zj, TA:) or we have made your sleep to be a cutting off from sensation and motion, for rest to the animal forces, and for causing their weariness to cease: or, to be death: (Bḍ:) or, to be rest unto your bodies by the interruption of labour, or work. (Jel.)

, (Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) as also سَبَنْدًى, (Ṣ,) Bold, or daring; (Ṣ, M, Ḳ;) as an epithet applied to anything [i. e. man or brute]: the ى is added to render it quasi-coordinate to the class of quinqueliteral-radical words, not to denote the fem. gender, for it receives ة as a termination [to denote the fem.], becoming سَبَنْتَاةٌ; (Ṣ;) and has tenween. (TA.) A poet applies the fem. epithet to a she-camel. (Ṣ.)
Also The leopard; (Ṣ, M, Ḳ;) so too with ة; (AHeyth, L in art. سبد;) and so سَبَنْدًى: probably thus called because of his boldness, or daringness: (Ṣ:) or, as some ay, the lion: fem. with ة: or the fem, signifies a bold, or daring, lioness: or a she-camel of bold, or daring, breast; but this last is not of valid authority: (M:) and a beast of prey [absolutely]: (L in art. سيد:) pl. سَبَانِتُ; (Ḳ, TA;) and some of the Arabs make سَبَاتِى [or rather سَبَاتٍ] to be its pl. (TA.)
The fem. also, applied to a woman, signifies Sharp in tongue; or clamorous; or clamorous and foul-tongued; or long-tongued and vehemently clamorous. (TA.)
