The answer to this is very simple: LOOK AT THE OT TEXT (as written!)  
and you will see right away how "exactly" it is used.

As to the question of what is its composition, here it is:

WA = BA, 'come, be', a variant of HAWA, and HAYA, possible forerunners
of HU and HIY. Hence, WAYIGA$ = בא-היא-גש BA-HIY-GA$, with HIY
referring to the performer of the act GA$. Otherwise, the quibbles on  
the
WAYIQTOL appear to me to be but a מהומה על מאומה
