Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 [בָּלַק] verb waste, lay waste (Assyrian balâ‡u, Pi`el destroy, Lyon Sargon 61; compare Arabic a desert) —

Po`el Participle without מ, suffix בּוֺלְקָהּ Isaiah 24:1 ("" בּוֺקֵק, subject ׳י, object הארץ); — on form (which might also be Qal Participle) compare Ol§ 254 Lag Genesis 1882,403; also בקק Po. Jeremiah 51:2, and intensive use of Infinitive absolute Niph`al Isaiah 24:3; further Punic (i.e. intensive) Participle Nahum 2:11 (this however perhaps largely influenced by assonance).

Pu`al Participle מְבֻלָּקָ֑ה Nahum 2:11 (׳בּוּקָה וּמְבוּקָה ומב), devastated, or as substantive a devastated city.
