The analysis above refers to the 49th verse of chapter 3 (sūrat āl ʿim'rān):

Sahih International: And [make him] a messenger to the Children of Israel, [who will say], 'Indeed I have come to you with a sign from your Lord in that I design for you from clay [that which is] like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird by permission of Allah. And I cure the blind and the leper, and I give life to the dead - by permission of Allah. And I inform you of what you eat and what you store in your houses. Indeed in that is a sign for you, if you are believers.

Question (not by me): Is "تَدَّخِرُ " root (ذ خ ر)?

Yes, the root is (ذ خ ر). For Form VIII (افتعل) verbs, where the ف letter is a ذ , the ت becomes a د . From this اذدخر , the letter ذ is assimilated (idgham) into the following letter د to become ادّخر [with a tashdeed over the letter د] A similar occurrence is the word ادّكر from the root [ذ ك ر].
