The word ַר ֲח ִמיםis used abstractly for “compassion” or “pity,” and thus most versions take this line as “he destroyed his pity,” understanding that to mean that he showed no compassion. However, as Shalom Paul states, such an interpretation “is a makeshift one and is totally unattested” (Paul 1991, 64). Various interpretations for ַר ֲח ִמיםhere have been proposed, including the unconvincing notion that it refers to treaty partners (see Fishbane 1970 and 1972; Coote 1971; Barré 1985).
