Targum Yonasan: This Pasuk is referring to someone who has no father to perform the Bris Milah, in which case the obligation falls on the Beis-Din (as representatives of the community at large).
QUESTIONS ON RASHI
Rashi writes: "[The word] 'Himol' [is in the infinitive] - meaning, 'to circumcise' (l'Himol)." What is Rashi explaining?
Gur Aryeh: It cannot be a verb in the form of a command, "circumcise for yourselves," because that would require the plural verb "Himolu."Rather, the verb is in the infinitive, "to circumcise."
