Roots

Latin noxa (injury, hurt, damage) is traced to Indo-European “root” nek (death).

NaKHaH is the root of הכה HeeKaH., "to kill" (II, Samuel11:15), as well as to defeat, beat or strike.  The smitting of crops by plagues in Egypt uses the Noon-Kaf verb in Exodus chapter 9, verses 31 and 32.  NeeG[A]h is to strike, afflict or infect.


Branches

Cognates include INNOCENT (see below), INNOCUOUS, INTERNECINE, NECRO-, NECROMANCY, NECTAR, NECTARINE, NOYADE, NUISANCE, OBNOXIOUS and PERNICIOUS.

NaKAh is smitten or afflicted; NaG(aF) is to smite, injure or plague; NeG(eF) is a stumbling block; and NaG[A]h is to strike or afflict. These Hebrew terms better match up to Latin nocere (to injure, hurt) than does the given IE “root”.

Part of the Noon-Kaf involves medical harm, and Chinese gan (typically reversed) is an element in several diseases.      See NICK.

The NC in INNOCENCE and the NK (reversed as usual) in the Japanese word for innocent, adokenai, might reflect NaQeeY (innocent – Exodus 23:7).
