STRONGS H8474:
Hithp. ... The following forms are somewhat dubious: Imperfect 2nd person masculine singular אֵיךְ תְּתַחֲרֶה אֶתהַֿסּוּסִים Jeremiah 12:5 how canst thou hotly contend (in a race) with the horses ? Participle כִּי אַתָּה מְתַחֲרֶה בָאָ֑רֶז Jeremiah 22:15 because thou strivest eagerly (to excel) in cedar; explained as Tiph'ēl by Thes Ges§ 55, 5 Ew§ 122 a Ol§ 255 a Sta§ 159 bi. p. 557 and others, and regarded by most as a rare causative stem; but against existence of Tiph'ēl see BaNB § 180 a; ZMG 1894, 20; Ba regards the form as denominative (from a noun formed by ת preform., compare Aramaic aXTvuroTf  contention); SS would point as Hithp. [compare Syriac ycroTAe  contend with, Nxyreo contention], although meaning of Hithp. is different, see H2734.
