It is not a verb. Two pieces of evidence for this:
1) This is not the correct form for a verb with a feminine subject,
which would be /harata(h)/ as in Genesis 16:4,5, contrast Psalm 7:15
(7:14 in English) where the subject is masculine.
2) The regular construction after /hinne(h)/ is a verbless clause with
an adjective or participle. I note that the verb HRH does not seem to
have a regular participle, but the adjective /hara(h)/ (feminine form
only attested) seems to function as its participle.
