חָקָה unused in Kal, i.q. חָקַק pr. to cut into (hacken, hauen), to hack; hence to engrave, to carve (Pual, No. 1); to draw, to paint (Pual, No. 2; see חָקַק, No. 2 ); also, to hack up the ground (aufhacken); see Hithpael.

Pual part. מְחֻקֶּה

(1) something carved, engraved, 1 Kings 6:35.

(2) drawn, painted, Ezekiel 8:10 comp. 23:14.

Hithpael, to dig up, to hack up the ground, aufhacken, einen Graben aufwerfen. I would thus, from the primary signification, explain Job 13:27, עַל־שָׁרְשֵׁי רַגְלַי תִּתְחַקֶּה “around the roots of my feet thou hast dug up (the ground);” or, hast made a trench, so that I cannot go on, i.e. thou hast stopped up my way, compare Job 19:8; Lamentations 3:7. It is commonly interpreted, around the roots of my feet thou hast delineated; i.e. hast marked out to my feet how far they shall go.
