(TA.) It is said that ثُمَّ نَبْتَهِلْ, in the Kur [iii. 54, of which one explanation has been given above, (see 3,)] means (tropical:) Then let us be sincere, or without hypocrisy, in prayer, or supplication; (S, TA;) and let us strive, or be earnest, or energetic: (TA:) or let us humble, or abase, ourselves; &c.; syn. نَتَضَرَّعْ.
