STRONGS H2489:
חֵֽלְכָה read חַלְכֶּה, חֶלְכֶּה, or חָלְכֶּה, adjective helpless, unfortunate, only as substantive hapless, luckless one(s)לְֵֽֽֽחלְכָה Psalm 10:8, Greek Version of the LXX εἰς τὸν πένητα, Syriac Version Targum; חֵלֶ֑כָה Psalm 10:14 Greek Version of the LXX ὁ πτωχός; חלכאים Psalm 10:10 Kt, read plural חַלְכָּאִים (חֶל׳, חָל׳); Qr חֵל כָּאִים Greek Version of the LXX τῶν πενήτων. In all text and meaning dubious (MT 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 O1 Hup De Bae Che, and critical note)

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