3) figuratively: a plague
The Hebrew word “makkah” refers to any physical blow or strike, often used in legal texts to describe assault or injury. It can also metaphorically reference plagues, as Divine punishment in response to disobedience or sin. These plagues go beyond the physical affliction, as they are often a warning against moral and spiritual decay, serving as a call to realign with God’s will.
