Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 ֵ˜חלְכָה read חַלְכֶּה, חֶלְכֶּה, or חָלְכֶּה,

adjective helpless, unfortunate, only as substantive hapless, luckless one(s)לְֵ˜חלְכָה Psalm 10:8, ᵐ5 εἰς τὸν πένητα, ᵑ6ᵑ7; חֵלֶ֑כָה Psalm 10:14 ᵐ5 ὁ πτωχός; חלכאים Psalm 10:10 Kt, read plural חַלְכָּאִים (׳חֶל, ׳חָל); Qr חֵל כָּאִיםᵐ5 τῶν πενήτων. In all text and meaning dubious (ᵑ0 reads חֵלְכָה = חֵילְךָ thine army; and חֵל כָּאִים Psalm 10:10 army of dejected ones, but this against usage of חֵל, and no such figurative sense of חַיִל, see O1Hup De Bae Che, and critical note)

[כָּאֶה] adjective cowed, Psalm 10:10 Qr חֵל כָּאִים; host of cowed ones, but read Kt חלכאים.
