1 خَصْفٌ خصف [inf. n. of خَصَفَ] signifies The act of adjoining, and putting together. (TA.) ― -b2- Hence, (TA,) خَصَفَ, (S, Msb, K, TA,) aor. خَصِفَ , (Msb, K,) inf. n. خَصْفٌ, (Msb,) He sewed a sole (S, K, TA) [so as to make it double], covering, or facing, one piece with another: (TA:) or he patched a sole; mended it by sewing on another piece. (Msb.) And He made anything double, putting one piece upon another; he faced it. (TA.) ― -b3- And [hence,] خَصَفَ عَلَى نَفْسِهِ, (JK,) or خَصَفَ الوَرَقَ عَلَى بَدَنِهِ, (S, * K,) aor. as above, (S, TA,) and so the inf. n.; (TA;) and ↓ اختصف ; (S, K;) and ↓ اخصف ; (K;) and ↓ خصّف , inf. n. تَخْصِيفٌ; (TA;) (tropical:) He stuck [or sewed] the leaves together, one to another, (S, K, * TA,) and covered his person with them, leaf by leaf, (K,) to conceal therewith his pudenda: (S, TA:) or the first phrase, (JK,) as also ↓ اختصف , (Lth, JK,) signifies he (a naked man) put upon his pudenda wide leaves, (Lth, JK,) or the like: (Lth:) you say, بِكَذَااختصف [he covered his pudenda with such a thing].

(tropical:) [When any one of you enters the bath,] let him take the waist-wrapper, and not put his hand upon his pudendum: and like this in meaning is تخصّفه [app. a mistranscription for ↓ يَتَخَصَّفُ , or ↓ يَخِصِّفُ or the like, for يَخْتَصِفُ: if not, it must be ↓ تَخَصَّفَهُ , meaning he put his hand upon it].
