Exodus 14:25

καὶ συνέδησεν τοὺς ἄξονας τῶν ἁρμάτων αὐτῶν καὶ ἤγαγεν αὐτοὺς μετὰ βίας. καὶ εἶπαν οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι· Φύγωμεν ἀπὸ προσώπου Ἰσραήλ· ὁ γὰρ Κύριος πολεμεῖ περὶ αὐτῶν τοὺς Αἰγυπτίους.

and bound together the axles of their chariots and led them with violence. And the Egyptians said, “Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the LORD fights the Egyptians for them.”

ויסר את אפן מרכבתיו וינהגהו בכבדת ויאמר מצרים אנוסה מפני ישׂראל כי יהוה נלחם להם במצרים׃


*   bound together the axles (i.e. the wheels, making the chariots immobile)
*   violence OR difficulty OR forcefully
