1 صَارَ كَذَا ذ , (T, S, Msb,) aor. يَصِيرُ, (S,) inf. n. صَيْرُورَةٌ (S, Msb) and صَيْرٌ, (S,) He, or it, attained to the state, or condition, of such a thing; (T;) became such a thing; (T, Msb;) in which sense the verb is like كَانَ [in meaning, when the latter is non-attributive, and in having its subject in the nom. case and its predicate in the accus.]. (T.) You say, صَارَ زَيْدٌ رَجُلًا Zeyd became a man; or attained to the state, or condition, of a man. (TA.) And صَارَ زَيْدٌ غَنِيًّا Zeyd became rich, not having been so. (Msb.) And صَارَ العَصِيرُ خَمْرًا The expressed juice became wine. (Msb.) [And صَارَ لَا شَىْءَ عِنْدَهُ He became in a state, or condition, in which there was not anything in his possession. And صَارَ يَفْعَلُ كَذَا He became in the state, or condition, of doing such a thing; i. e. he became occupied, or engaged, in doing such a thing; or he set about, began, commenced, took to, or betook himself to, doing such a thing; like جَعَلَ. And صَارَ لَا يَفْعَلُ شَيْئًا He became in the state, or condition, of not doing anything; or he became unoccupied in doing anything. And صَارَ لَا يَتَكَلَّمُ He became in the state of not speaking; he became speechless. And صَارَ يَتَفَكَّرُ فِى كَذَا He became in a state of reflection upon such a thing; he began to reflect upon such a thing.] ― -b2- One says also, صَارَ الأَمْرُ إِِلَى كَذَا, (M, A, Msb, K,) aor. as above, (TA,) inf. n. مَصِيرٌ, (S, M, A, Msb, K,) which is anomalous, being regularly مَصَارٌ, like مَعَاشٌ, (S,) and صَيْرٌ and صَيْرُورَةٌ, (M, A, K,) i. e. رَجَعَ إِِلَيْهِ: (Msb:) [but this is a loose explanation; the meaning being, The thing, or affair, or case, came eventually (see صِيرٌ) to such a state, or condition:] the difference between مَصِيرٌ and مَرْجِعٌ is, that the former word necessarily implies a difference [of the latter state or condition] from the former state or condition; but the latter word does not. (Bd in iii. 156.) [In this case, the ulterior state or condition is likened to a place: for] ― -b3- صَارَ also signifies He, or it, attained in respect of place: so in the saying, صَارَ زَيْدٌ إِِلَى عَمْرٍو [Zeyd came, or went, or pursued a course that brought him, to 'Amr]. (TA.) صِرْتُ إِِلَى فُلَانٍ [I came, &c., to such a one] is similar to the phrase in the Kur [iii. 27] وَإِِلَى ا@للّٰهِ ا@لْمَصِيرُ [And to God, as the ultimate object, is the transition, or course, of every human being]. (S.) [Hence, أًلَا إِِلَى ا@للّٰهِ تَصِيرُ ا@لْأُمُورُ, in the Kur xlii. last verse, which Bd explains by adding the words بِا@رْتِفَاعِ الوَسَائِطِ وَالتَّعَلُّقَاتِ; the meaning being, Verily to God are things, or events, referrible, mediately and dependently: in the Expos. of the Jel expl. as meaning تَرْجِعُ.] ― -b4- [And in like manner one says, صَارَ لَهُ كَذَا Such a thing came to, betided, or befell, him, or it: and hence, he, or it, came to have, or became possessed of, such a thing.] ― -b5- And صَارَ فِى أَرْضِ فَلَاةٍ [He became, or came to be, meaning he found himself, in a desert, or waterless, land]; i. q. وَقَعَ فِيهَا. (Msb in art. وقع.) And صَارَ فِى الرَّبِيعِ [He entered, lit. became in, the season called ربيع]; i. q. أَرْبَعَ [which is expl. in the S as signifying دَخَلَ فِى الرَّبِيعِ]. (K in art. ربع.) -A2- صَيْرٌ signifies also The returning of seekers after herbage to the watering-places. (O, K.) And one says, صَارَ الرَّجُلُ, aor. يَصِيرُ, [inf. n. صَيْرٌ,] The man stayed, or abode, at the water. (TA.) And صَارَ النَّاسُ المَآءَ The people stayed, or abode, at the water. (M, K, TA.) -A3- صَارَهُ, (S,) first pers. صِرْتُهُ, (M,) aor. as above, (S,) inf. n. صَيْرٌ, (K,) a dial. var. of صَارَهُ having for its aor. يَصُورُهُ, [q. v.,] (S,) He cut it; (S, M, K;) and clave it, or split it. (M.) ― -b2- And in like manner, [i. e. as a dial. var. of صَارَهُ having for its aor. يَصُورُهُ,] He made it to incline, or lean. (S.) You say, صَارَ وَجْهَهُ, aor. يَصِيرُ, (M,) as also يَصُورُ, (M and K in art. صور,) He turned his face towards a person or thing. (M.) And صِرْتُ عُنُقَهُ I twisted his neck. (M.) [Respecting the phrase فَصِرْهُنَّ إِِلَيْكَ in the Kur ii. 262, accord. to one reading, see 1 in art. صور.] ― -b3- صَارَهُ, aor. يَصِيرُ, inf. n. صَيْرٌ, signifies also حَبَسَهُ [He confined, restricted, &c., him, or it]. (Msb.)
