The Tiphil is an extremely rare stem formation that is similar to the Hiphil and expresses causative action in active voice.
The Tiphil stem (sometimes called: Tiphal, Tiphel, or Taphel) expresses causative action in active voice, similar to the more common Hiphil stem formation. It differs from the Hiphil by using a ת prefix before the 1st radical instead of a ה prefix. It is an extremely rare stem formation in Biblical Hebrew.
It is recommended to always check a dictionary or lexicon for the meaning of a specific verb, because this stem may express many different kinds of action in different contexts.
