Judges 5:6 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

"So God subdued at that time Jabin the king of Canaan before the children of Israel; and the hand of the Israelites became heavier and heavier in its pressure upon him, until they had destroyed him." וקשׁה הלוך ... יד ותּלך, "the hand ... increased more and more, becoming heavy." הלך, used to denote the progress or continual increase of an affair, as in Genesis 8:3, etc., is connected with the infinitive absolute, and with the participle of the action concerned. קשׁה is the feminine participle of קשׁה, like גּדל in Genesis 26:13 (see Ges. 131, 3, Anm. 3). The overthrow of Jabin and his rule did not involve the extermination of the Canaanites generally.
