Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֶכֶף m. a load, a burden, and metaph. weight, authority, dignity, like ·כָּבוֹד Job 33:7, וְאַכְפִּי עָלֶיךָ לֹא יִכְבַּד “and my burden (dignity) shall not be heavy upon thee.” So Ch., Syr., while LXX. ἡ χείρ μου, and so Kimchi, regarding אֶכֶף as i.q. בַּף in a similar place, 13:21. The former explanation is however preferable.
