They're knocked around from pillar to post, beaten to within an inch of their lives. They're trapped in a house of horrors,
He is pulling it out, and it comes out of his back; and its shining point comes out of his side; he is overcome by fears.

1 tn The MT has “he draws out [or as a passive, “it is drawn out/forth”] and comes [or goes] out of his back.” For the first verb שָׁלַף (shalaf, “pull, draw”), many commentators follow the LXX and use שֶׁלַח (shelakh, “a spear”). It then reads “and a shaft comes out of his back,” a sword flash comes out of his liver.” But the verse could also be a continuation of the preceding.
2 tn Possibly a reference to lightnings.
