Th Klo, and they went away.
†4. The infinitive absolute is often used
a. as in other verbs, quite independently (Ges§ 113, 1): הֲגָנֹב֗֗֗ וְהָלֹךְ אַחֲרִי אֱלֹהִים אֲחֵרִים... Jeremiah 7:9 (series of 6 infinitive absolute) (are there) stealing, murdering, and adultery and false swearing and incense-burning to the Baal, and going after other gods...? as object, וְלֹאאָֿבוּ בִדְרָכָיו הָלוֺךְ Isaiah 42:24 and they desired not walking in his ways; as apposition of object, Jeremiah 23:14 I have seen... an abominable thing, committing adultery and walking in lies (נָאוֺף וְהָלוֺךְ בַּשֶּׁקֶר); compare וַיַּעַשׂ כֵּן הָלוֺךְ עָרוֺם וְיָחֵף Isaiah 20:2 and he did so, a walking naked and barefoot, where also two adverbial accusative modifying the infinitive absolute (Ges§ 113, 2).
b. to intensify meaning of finite form of הָלַךְ (Ges§ 118, 3):
(1) before finite verb הָלוֺךְ אֵלֵךְ עִמָּךְ Judges 4:9 I will surely go with thee, compare Jeremiah 37:9; הָלֹךְ הָלַכְתָּ Genesis 31:30 concessive, thou art indeed gone, הָעֵצִים הָּלוֺךְ חָֽלְכוּ Judges 9:8 introductory, the trees went forth on a time to anoint them a king.
(2) after finite verb וַיֵּלֶךְ הָלוֺךְ 2 Samuel 3:24 and he is actually gone! (a grave imprudence to permit it!), י׳ אֶת־פְּנֵי לְחַלּוֹת הָלוֺךְ נֵלְכָה Zechariah 8:21 let us by all means go to seek the favour of י׳
c. most noteworthy is the joining of the infinitive absolute
(1) with a following infinitive absolute denoting a simulaneous action or process, and so emphasizing duration or continuance:
α. both Infinitives preceding the finite verb, הָלוֺךְ וְטָפֹף תֵּלַכְנָה Isaiah 3:16 a going and atripping they go, i.e. they keep tripping as they go; so הָלוֺךְ וּבָכוֺ יֵלֵ֑כוּ Jeremiah 50:4 continually weeping they shall go;
β. one infinitive before, & one after the finite verb הָלוֺךְ יֵלֵךְ וּבָבֹה Psalm 126:6 continually may one go weeping
γ. elsewhere both after finite verb Joshua 6:9 the rearguard was going (הֹלֵךְ) after the ark, continually blowing on the trumpets (הָלוֺךְ וְתָקוֺעַ בַּשּׁוֺפָרוֺת), compare Joshua 6:13 (where הָו֯לֹךְ cf, below; both J E), וַיֵּלֶךְ ֗֗֗ הָלוֺךְ וּבָכוֺ 2 Samuel 3:16, of cows ץָהלְכוּ הָלוֺךְ וְגָעוֺ 1 Samuel 6:12 they went continually lowing, וַיֵּלֶךְ הָלוֺךְ וְאָבֹל Judges 14:9 and he went on, eating as he went; הֹלְכִים הָלוֺךְ וְדַבֵּר 2 Kings 2:11 they were going on, talking as they went; in הֹלֵךְ הָלךְ וּבֹכֶה Jeremiah 41:6, the participle בֹּכֶה is peculiar, read perhaps בָּכֹה, and for הֹלֵךְ read הֹלְכִים Greek Version of the LXX Hi compare Gf.
(2) with a following finite verb with ו consecutive (rare): הֹלְכִים הָלוֺךְ וְֽֽֽתקְעוּ Joshua 6:13 (JE) they were going along continually blowing on the trumpets; וַתַּלֶךְ הָלוֺךְ וְזָעָ֑קָה 2 Samuel 13:19 and she went, crying out as she went; הֹלֵךְ הָ֗֗֗לוֺךְ וִיְקַלֵּל 2 Samuel 16:13 he went along... cursing as he went; so 1 Samuel 19:23 and he went on, prophesying as he went, until he came, etc.
(3) in cases where finite verb is followed by infinitive absolute + adjective denoting progress, advance: וַיֵּלֶךְ חָלוֺךְ וְקָרֵב 2 Samuel 18:25 and he came continually nearer (nearer & nearer); elsewhere with idea of actual motion lost from finite verb: וַיֵּלֶךְ הָלוֺךְ וָרָ֑ב 1 Samuel 14:19 and he tumult kept growing greater and greater; so וְגָדוֺל וַיֵּלֶךְ דָּוִד הָלוֺךְ 2 Samuel 5:10 = [H3212 1 Chronicles 11:9]; compare Judges 4:24 and the hand of the sons of Israel kept growing more and more severe (וַתֵּלָךְ ֗֗֗ הָלוֺךְ וְקָשָׁה) upon Jabin; note especially וַיִּגְּדּל הָאִישׁ וַיֵּלֶךְ הָלוֺךְ וְגָדֵל עַדבִּֿיֿ גָדַל מְאֹד Genesis 26:13 (J) and the man grew great and kept on growing greater and greater until etc. (גָּדֵל particular adjective).
(4) twice, where finite verb is not הלך, but another verb denoting motion: וַיָּשֻׁבוּ הַמַּיִם ֗֗֗ הָלוֺךְ וָשׁוֺב Genesis 8:3 (J) and he waters retired continually more and more; וַיִסַּע אַבְּרָם הָלוֺךְ וְנָסוֺעַ הַנֶּ֫גְבָּה Genesis 12:9 (J) and Abram journeyed on continually further toward the south country.
(5) quite by itself is Genesis 8:5 (P) וְהַמַּיִם הָיוּ הָלוֺךְ וְחָסוֺר and he waters, they continually diminished (were a going and a diminishing; the infinitive absolute being predicate).
(6) + 13 times the infinitive absolute = Imperative & is followed by perfect consecutive (chiefly in Jeremiah): הָלוֺךְ וְדִבַּרְתָּ֫ 2 Samuel 24:12 go and speak, so Jeremiah 35:2; וְאָמַרְתָּ֫ ה׳ go and say, Isaiah 38:5; Jeremiah 28:13; Jeremiah 34:2; Jeremiah 35:13; Jeremiah 39:16; וְקָרָאתָ ה׳ Jeremiah 2:2; Jeremiah 3:12; also וְרָחַצְתָּ֫ ה׳ 2 Kings 5:10 go and wash, וְקָנִיתָ ה׳ Jeremiah 13:1; Jeremiah 19:1 go and buy, וְעָמַדְתָּ֫ ה׳ Jeremiah 17:19 go and stand.
d. akin to the use of infinitive absolute are some instances of Participle הֹלֵךְ + adjective (or participle): וַיֵּלֶךְ הַמְּלִשְׁתִּי הֹלֵךְ וְקָרֵב 1 Samuel 17:41 and the Philistine came continually nearer (compare 2 Samuel 18:25 above); in other cases as predicate, with same idea of growing, increasing: וְדַלִּים הֹלְכִים שָׁאוּל וּבֵית וְחָזֵק הֹלֵךְ וְדָוִד 2 Samuel 3:1 and David was growing stronger and stronger, while the house of Saul were growing weaker and weaker, compare 2 Chronicles 17:12; Esther 9:4 (of individuals), 2 Samuel 15:12 (of people); + 2 adjective וְהַנַּעַד וָטוֺב וְגָדֵל הֹלֵךְ שְׁמוּאֵל 1 Samuel 2:26; compare (with different order) of wind, Ecclesiastes 1:6 goeth (הוֺלֵךְ) toward the south, and turneth about (סוֺבֵב) unto the north, the wind turneth about and about continually (סוֺבֵב סֹבֵב הוֺלֵךְ הָרוּחַ); of sea הַיָּם הוֺלֵךְ וְסֹעֵר Jonah 1:11, 13 the sea was growing more and more stormy; also וַיְהִי קוֺל הַ שֹּׁפָר הוֹלֵךְ וְחָזֵק מְאֹד Exodus 19:19 and the sound of the trumpet kept growing louder and louder; & in metaphor אֹרַח צַדִּיקִים כְּאוֺר נֹ֑גַהּ הוֺלֵךְ וָאוֺר עַדנְֿכוֺן הַיּוֺם Proverbs 4:18 the path of just men is like a shining light, growing lighter and lighter until the full day.
5. In combination with other verbal forms:
a. followed by infinitive of purpose (with לְ) [H3212 Genesis 25:22]; Genesis 31:19; Genesis 37:25 (all J E) Numbers 14:38 (P) Numbers 24:1 (JE), Judges 8:1; Judges 9:8, 9, 11, 13 + often; especially לִקְרַאת הּ׳ go to meet [H3212 Joshua 9:11 (JE), 2 Samuel 19:16 [2 Samuel 19:15]; 1 Kings 18:16 (twice in verse) +; sometimes with hostile sense 1 Samuel 23:28; 1 Kings 20:27; 2 Kings 23:29; also לָּשּׁובּ הּ׳ go to return, Exodus 4:21] (RV go back), compare also שּׁובּ לָּלֶּכֶּתּ return again Ecclesiastes 1:7; [H3212 Ecclesiastes 5:16; לָּבּוֺֿ הּ׳ go to come (enter etc.) Jeremiah 41:17 compare 2 Chronicles 26:8].
b. followed by finite verb go and do so and so: [H3212 Genesis 22:13; 27:14; Exodus 2:8 4:27, 29 (all J E), Deuteronomy 13:6, 13; 17:3]; Deuteronomy 24:2; Isaiah 2:3 = Micah 4:2; Jeremiah 11:12 + often; וַיֵּלֶךְ וַּיָשָּׁבּ [H3212 Exodus 4:18 (E),יֵלֵךְ וְיָשֹׁב Deuteronomy 20:5, 6, 7, 8, וַיֵּלְכוּ וַיָּשׁוּבוּ Judges 21:23 compare Hosea 2:9 [Hosea 2:7]; Hosea 5:15; וַיָּבוֺא ה׳ went & came Numbers 13:26 (P), Ruth 2:3; 1 Samuel 22:5; 2 Samuel 11:22; 2 Kings 4:25; notably וַיֵּלֶךְ וַיִּשְׁלַךְ 2 Kings 3:7] and he went and sent.
c. following other verbs: וַיָּקֻמוּ וַיֵּלְכוּ [H3212 Genesis 22:19 (E) compare Genesis 24:10 (J) Genesis 43:8 (J) Numbers 16:25] (JE) Judges 4:9; נִסְעָה וְנֵלֵ֑כָה [H3212 Genesis 33:12] (J).
d. especially as result of action expressed in preceding verb, such as verb of sending, etc.: וַיְשַׁלַּח אֶתאֶֿחָיו וַיֵּלֵ֑כוּ [H3212 Genesis 45:24 (E) compare Joshua 1:16] (D) 1 Samuel 6:8; [H3212 Job 38:35; also יִשָּׁאֵהוּ קָדִים וְיֵלַ֑ךְ Job 27:21] an east wind shall carry him off, and he shall depart; וַיְ גָָֽרֲשֵׁהוּ וַיֵּלַ֑ךְ Psalm 34:1 (title). (compare depart also of inanimate things 3 above)
e. in longer series: וַיֵּלֶךְ וִיִּבְרַח וַיִּמָּלֵט [H3212 1 Samuel 19:12; וַיִּסַּע וַיֵּלֶךְ וַיָשָׁב֗֗֗ וַיֵּשֶׁב 2 Kings 19:36 = Isaiah 37:37]; compare Numbers 24:25 (JE); וַיָּקָם וַיֵּלֶךְ וַיָּבאֹ [H3212 Judges 19:10; also וַיָּקָם וַיָּבאֹ וַיֵּלֶךְ 2 Kings 10:12].
f. oft; in imperative foll by 2nd imperative or equivalent,
(1) לֵךְ קַחלִֿי [H3212 Genesis 27:13 (J) go, bring me (them), compare Hosea 1:2; לְכוּ רְעוּ Genesis 29:7 (J) go, feed (them), compare Genesis 37:14; 42:19; Exodus 4:19] + (in all approximately + 57 times; only J E D in Hexateuch); but also
(2) weakened to mere introductory word (as also above passim: especially [H3212 2 Kings 3:7 etc.), go to, or come, do (let us do) so; לְכָה נִכְרְתָה בְרִית Genesis 31:44 come, let us make a compact, compare נַשְׁקֶה לְכָה Genesis 19:32 (where subject feminine); לְכוּ וְנֵלְכָה 1 Samuel 9:9 come, and let us go, so 1 Samuel 9:10; 11:14]; Isaiah 2:3 = Micah 4:2, compare Zechariah 6:7 +; even לֵךְ בּאֹ וְאֶשְׁלְחָה [H3212 2 Kings 5:5 go to, come, and let me send, compare Isaiah 22:15; 26:20; Ezekiel 3:4, 11; further Judges 19:11, 13]; 1 Samuel 9:5; [H3212 1 Kings 1:12; Psalm 34:5 [Psalm 34:11]] + (in all approximately + 49 times; only J E in Hexateuch).

II. Figurative; the most common uses follow; in most the origin in a literal meaning is evident:
†1. pass away, die; in phrases denoting or implying death (compare Arabic هَلَكَ perish); וְהִנֵּה אָנֹכִּי הוֺלֵךְ הַיּוֺם בְּדֶרֶךְ בָּלהָֿאָרֶץ Joshua 23:14 (D) lo, I am going to-day the way of all the eath compare 1 Kings 2:2; perhaps also Genesis 15:2 (JE) I pass away childless, but possibly below 2 below; also 2 Samuel 12:23 I am going (אֲנִי הֹלֵךְ) to him 2 Samuel 12:23; so of mankind דּוֺרהֹלֵךְ וְדוֺר בָּא Ecclesiastes 1:4; more explicitly, הַּכֹּל הוֺלֵךְ אֶלמָֿקוֺם אֶחָ֑ד הַכֹּל הָיֶה מִן הֶעָפָר וְהַכֹּל שָׁב אֶלהֶֿעָפָר Ecclesiastes 3:20; compare Ecclesiastes 6:6; also בִּשְׁאוֺל ֲשֶׁר אַתָּה הֹלֵךְ שָׁ֑מָּה Ecclesiastes 9:10, & אֶלבֵּֿית עוֺלָמוֺ הֹלֵךְ הָאָדָם Ecclesiastes 12:5; compare בְּטֶדֶם אֵלֵךְ וְאֵינֶנִּי [H3212 Psa 39:14 [Psalm 39:13] before I depart and be not; so according to some 2 Chronicles 21:20] but compare below 3a (2); once with weaker sense followed by infinitive, חִנֵּה אָנֹכִי הוֺךֵלךְ לָמוּת Genesis 25:32 (J).
2. live ('walk'), in general (compare Pi. Hithp.) (usually in poetry, with modifying words): צַלְמָוֶת כִּיאֵֿלֵךְ בְּנֵיא [H3212 Psalm 23:4 though I walk in a valley of deep darkness; compare Psalm 138:7; אֵ֫לֶךְ השֶׁךְ Job 29:8 [Job 29:3] ; קֹדֵר אֵלֵךְ Psalm 42:10 [Psalm 42:9]]; חֲשֵׁכִים ה׳ Isaiah 50:10, see also [H3212 Ezekiel 3:14]; perhaps also Genesis 15:2 compare 1 above; יֵלְכוּ מֵחַיִל אֶלחָֿ֑יִל [H3212 Psalm 84:8 [Psalm 84:7]] they go from strength to strength; יֵלֶךְ בֶּטַח הוֺלֵךְ בַּתֹּם Proverbs 10:9; especially

a. walk in (בְּ) ways (counsels, statutes, etc.),
(1) in good sense:
