In the Priestly blessing (במדבר ו:כד-כה), for the word וישם, is the the root שים or is the root ישם?

ישם -'Implement', https://pealim.com/dict/864-leyasem
שים - 'Put', https://www.pealim.com/dict/45-lasim/


I'm not personally familiar with the root ישׂמ in biblical Hebrew (though maybe it exists). This is שׂימ (or equivalently שׂומ or שׂמ), to put or give. Roots with ו (or י or nothing) as the second of their three letters will look like this in the jussive, q.v.
