Therefore shall all hands be faint
Or hang down; that is, the hands of all the Babylonians, the city
being taken suddenly and at once, so that they should not be able
to lift them up to lay hold on a weapon, and defend themselves:
and every man's heart shall melt;
like wax before the fire; be dispirited, and lose all their
valour and courage, have neither power nor heart to resist their
enemies, and attempt to save themselves.
