1 تَبڤ3َ [تَبَّ, aor. تَبِ3َ , inf. n. تَبٌّ, and perhaps ↓ تَبَبٌ and ↓ تَبَابٌ and ↓ تَبِيبٌ , He, or it, suffered loss, or diminution; or became lost: and perished, or died: as also ↓ تبّب , inf. n. تَتْبِيبٌ: and app. تُبَّ also.] تَبٌّ (M, A, K) and ↓ تَتْبِيبٌ (M, K) [as inf. ns.] signify The suffering loss, or diminution; or being lost: and perishing, or dying: or [used as substs.] loss, or diminution; or the state of being lost: and perdition, or death: (M, * A, K: *) and so ↓ تَبَابٌ , (T, S, A, Msb, K,) [said to be] a subst. from تَبَّبَهُ, with teshdeed, (Msb,) and ↓ تَبَبٌ and ↓ تَبِيبٌ : (K:) or the last three signify [simply] perdition, or death: (M:) and ↓ تَتْبِيبٌ is explained as signifying loss, or diminution, that brings, or leads, to perdition or death; (IAth, TA;) and so ↓ تَبَابٌ ; (Bd in cxi. 1;) and the causing to perish. (T, TA.) Hence you say, ↓ تَبَّ تَبَابًا [meaning, in an emphatic manner, May he suffer loss, or be lost, or perish]. (S.) And تَبًّا لَهُ May God decree to him loss, or perdition; or cause loss, or perdition, to cleave to him: (S, M, * Msb, * K: *) تَبًّا being in the accus. case as an inf. n. governed by a verb understood. (S.) And ↓ تَبًّا تَبِيبًا , [in the CK تَتْبِيبًا,] meaning the same in an intensive, or emphatic, manner: (M, K:) and ↓ تَبًّا تَبَابًا . (TA.) And تَبَّتْ يَدَاهُ, (T, S, M, K,) and تَبَّتْ يَدُهُ, aor. تَبِ3َ , (Msb,) inf. n. تَبٌّ and ↓ تَبَابٌ , but IDrd says that the former of these seems to be the inf. n., and the latter the simple subst., (M,) May his arms, or hands, and his arm, or hand, suffer loss, or be lost, or perish: (T, M, Msb, K, and Bd in cxi. 1:) or (tropical:) may he himself suffer loss, &c., (Msb, * and Bd ubi suprà,) i. e., (tropical:) his whole person: (Jel in cxi. 1:) or (tropical:) his good in the present life and that in the life to come. (Bd ubi suprà.) ― -b2- [Hence,] تَبَّ (A, TA) and ↓ تَبْتَبَ (T, K) (tropical:) He became an old man: (T, A, K:) the loss of youth being likened to تَبَابَ. (TA.) -A2- تَبَّ, [aor., accord. to rule, تَبُ3َ ,] He cut, or cut off, a thing. (K.) And تُبَّ It was cut, or cut off. (TA.) 2 تبّب تبب , inf. n. تَتْبِيبٌ: see 1, in three places. -A2- , تبّبهُ (inf. n. as above, S,) [He caused him to suffer loss, or to become lost: or] he destroyed him, or killed him. (S, K.) ― -b2- He said to him تَبًّا: (M, K: *) [i. e.] he imprecated loss, or perdition, or death, upon him. (A.) 4 اتبّ ا@للّٰهُ قُوَّتَهُ ذ (tropical:) God weakened, or impaired, or may God weaken, or impair, his strength. (K, TA.) 10 استتبّ أستتب استتب ٱستتاب ٱستتب (tropical:) It (a road) became beaten, or trodden, and rendered even, or easy to walk or ride upon, or easy and direct. (A.) ― -b2- (tropical:) It (an affair) was, or became, rightly disposed or arranged; in a right state: (S, M, A, Msb:) or it followed a regular, or right, course; was in a right state; and clear, or plain: from مُسْتَتِبٌّ applied to a road, explained below: (T, TA:) or it became complete, and in a right state: lit. it demanded loss, or diminution, or destruction; because these sometimes follow completeness: (Har p. 35:) or the ب may be a substitute for م; the meaning being استتمّ. (TA.) R. Q. 1 تَبْتَبَ تبتب : see 1. تِبَّةٌ بهي تب تبه تبة A difficult, or distressing, state or condition.

(K.) -A2- [It is also said in the K to signify What the ribs infold: but I think it probable that this meaning has been assigned to it from its having been found erroneously written for تَبُوتٌ, a dial. var. of تَابُوتٌ.] تَابٌّ أبى تأب تاب (tropical:) An old man; (AZ, T, M, A, K;) fem. with ة: (AZ, T, M, A:) and (assumed tropical:) weak: pl. أَتْبَابٌ: of the dial. of Hudheyl; and extr.
