Ancient Hebrew had a form known as "Qal passive" or "G passive".
In Hebrew, this took the form of qut(t)al and yuqtal.  For example:
yullad in Gen 4:26, gunnav in Ex 22,6, yuttan in Lev 11:38.  This is
not a participle but a complete archaic verb form.  The verb LQX is
not generally used in the Piel, so we may suspect that in this case
we have a Qal passive, but perhaps revocalized as a Pual.
