And بِالرُّمْحِاختلّهُ He transpierced him, or transfixed him, with the spear; (T, M, K, TA;) and so بِالسَّهْمِ with the arrow: (S:) or the former signifies he pierced him with the spear and transfixed his heart: (TA:) accord. to AZ, الاِخْتِلَالُ relates to the heart and the liver.

(Msb) A poet says, “ سَمِعْنَ بِمَوْتِهِ فَظَهَرْنَ نَوْحًا
قِيَامًا مَا يُخَلُّ لَهُنَّ عُودُ
” meaning, لَا يُخَلُّ لَهُنَّ ثَوْبٌ بِعُودٍ [i. e. They (the women) heard of his death, and appeared, wailing, standing; no garment of theirs having its edges fastened together with a pointed piece of wood].

(S.) It (the former) is as though it were taken from تَخَلَّلْتُ القَوْمَ meaning “ I entered amid the breaks, or interspaces, of the people. ” (Msb.) Hence the trad., خَلِّلُوا أَصَابِعَكُمْ لَا تُخَلَّلَهَا نَارٌ قَلِيلٌ بُقْيَاهَا [Make ye the water to flow into the interstices of your fingers or toes, lest fire that shall spare little be made to flow into their interstices].

(TA.) [Accord. to modern usage, the verb signifies He pickled.] 3 خالّهُ 4 , (JK, Mgh, K,) inf. n. مُخَالَّةٌ and خِلَالٌ (JK, S, K) and [quasi-inf. n.] ↓ خُلَّةٌ , (JK,) He acted, or associated, with him as a friend, or as a true, or sincere, friend.

(TA.) 4 أَخَلَّ ذ and أُخِلَّ and أُخِلَّ بِهِ: see 1, near the beginning. ― -b2- أخَلَّ بِهِ He (a man) fell, or stopped, short in it; fell short of accomplishing it; fell short of doing what was requisite, or due, or what he ought to have done, in it, or with respect to it; or flagged, or was remiss, in it; namely, a thing; syn. قَصَّرَ فِيهِ; (Msb;) as, for instance, in belief, and in confession thereof, and in works: (Ksh and Bd in ii. 2:) he left it, neglected it, omitted it; or left it undone: (Har p. 402:) or i. q. أَجْحَفَ بِهِ [app. as meaning he was near to falling short of accomplishing it, or of doing what was requisite in it; or was near to being remiss in it]; namely, a thing. (K.) ― -b3- He failed of fulfilling his compact with him, or his promise to him. (K.) ― -b4- He became absent, or he absented himself, from it; he left, abandoned, or quitted, it; namely, a place &c.

(K.) ― -b2- Hence, اخلّ said of a man signifies (assumed tropical:) أَخَذَ مِنْ قُبُلٍ [i. e. He took frontways]: opposed to أَحْمَضَ [and حَمَّضَ, q. v.], meaning أَخَذَ مِنْ دُبُرٍ.

And تخلّل الاشَّىْءُ The thing [i. e. anything] went, or passed, through. (JK, * S, K.) ― -b2- [Hence, It intervened; said of a time &c.

(Msb.) [You say, اختلّ مِزَاجُهُ His constitution, or temperament, became in a corrupt or disordered state. And اختلّ alone He was, or became, disordered in temper; (see تَحَمَّضَ;) but this seems to be from the same verb said of a camel; (see اختلّت الأِبِلُ, below;) for the camel becomes disordered in his stomach by pasturing long upon خُلَّة, without shifting to حَمْض. And اختلّ عَقْلَهُ His mind, or intellect, was, or became, unsound, or disordered.] And اختلّ أَمْرُهُ [His affair, or state, was, or became, unsound, corrupt, or disordered]; (S, voce اِضْطَرَبَ;) i. e. وَقَعَ فِيهِ الخَلَلُ. (JM.) ― -b3- He was, or became, lean, meagre, or emaciated; (KL;) and so اختلّ جِسْمُهُ. (S.)

(K) that has become acid, or sour: (JK, * Mgh, K:) so called because its sweet flavour has become altered for the worse (اِخْتَلَّ): (Msb:) a genuine Arabic word: (IDrd, K:) the best is that of wine: it is composed of two constituents (K) of subtile natures, (TA,) hot and cold, (K,) the cold being predominant: (TA:) and is good for the stomach; and for the gums, (K,) which it strengthens, when one rinses the mouth with it; (TA;) and for foul ulcers or sores; and for the itch; and for the bite, or sting, of venomous reptiles; and as an antidote for the eating of opium; and for burns; and for toothache; and its hot vapour is good for the dropsy, and for difficulty of hearing, and for ringing in the ears: (K: [various other properties &c. are assigned to it in the TA:]) ↓ خَلَّةٌ signifies somewhat (lit. a portion) thereof; [being the n. un.:] (Aboo-Ziyád, K;) or it may be a dial. var. thereof, like as خَمْرَةٌ is [said by some to be] of خَمْرٌ: (Aboo-Ziyád, TA:) see also خَلَّةٌ: the pl. is خُلُولٌ [meaning sorts, or kinds, of vinegar]. (Msb.) It is said in a trad., نِعْمَ الإِِدَامُ الخَلُّ [Excellent, or most excellent, is the seasoning, vinegar!]. (TA.) ― -b2- [Hence,] أُمُّ الخَلِّ [The mother of vinegar; meaning] wine. (JK, TA.) ― -b3- [Hence also the saying,] مَا فُلَانٌ بِخَلٍّ وَلَا خَمْرٍ, (A'Obeyd, JK, S,) or مَا لَهُ خَلٌّ وَلَا خَمْرٌ, (K,) or مَا عِنْدَ فُلَانٍ خَلٌّ وَلَا خَمْرٌ, (S, in art. خمر,) Such a one, or he, possesses neither good nor evil: (A'Obeyd, JK, S, K:) [or neither evil nor good: for] AA says that some of the Arabs make الخَمْرُ to be good, and الخَلُّ to be evil; [and thus the latter is explained in one place, in this art., in the K;] and some of them make الخمر to be evil, and الخلّ to be good.
