The variant translations in LXX are "exekopsan" and "exoryxan"--"cut OUT," "dug OUT." Jerome has "eruerunt"--"drew OUT," "rooted OUT." I would wager that Junius-Tremellius gives "eruerunt." Why would M have differed from earlier interpreters in imagining the Philistine attack as meticulously surgical rather than brutal?
