ומלת חשוקיהם. דבוקיהם. כי הווים ידבקו אל העמודים. כי ותדבק נפשו. כמו חשקה נפשו: [AND THEIR FILLETS.] The meaning of chashukehem (their fillets) is their attachments, the hooks being attached to the pillars.38The fillets, like the hooks, were attached to the pillars. See Rashi: “The pillars were encompassed by threads of silver round about.” Va-tidbak nafsho (and his soul did cleave) (Gen. 34:3) means the same as chashekah nafsho (his soul longeth) (Gen. 34:8).39The Bible first says va-tidbak nafsho. It then repeats the same account. However, in the latter it employs chashekah nafsho in place of va-tidbak nafsho. We thus see that davak and chashak have the same meaning.
