angry.

1 Samuel 30:6
And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.

2 Samuel 17:8
For, said Hushai, thou knowest thy father and his men, that they be mighty men, and they be chafed in their minds, as a bear robbed of her whelps in the field: and thy father is a man of war, and will not lodge with the people.

Job 3:5
Let darkness and the shadow of death stain it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it.









(25) Lest angry fellows run upon thee.--Literally, lest men bitter of soul fall upon thee. (Comp. Judges 8:21; Judges 15:12; 2Samuel 17:8, "chafed in their minds.")

Thou lose thy life.--Literally, thou gather thy life, as in Psalm 26:9.

Verse 25. - Run upon thee. Rather, run, or fall, upon you; it is the plural pronoun, comprehending the whole party. The argument of the Danites was the argument of the stronger.
