{Genesis 19:11} And they smote 5221 z8689 the men y582 x376 that x834 [were] at the door 6607 of the house 1004 with blindness, 5575 both small 6996 x4480 and great: 1419 so that they wearied y3811 z8799 themselves x3811 to find 4672 z8800 the door. 6607
with blindness:

And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha." {2Kg 6:18}, is supposed to denote dazzlings, deceptions, or confusions of sight from excessive light; being derived by Schultens, who is followed by Parkhurst, from the Arabic sana, to pour forth, diffuse, and nor, light.

And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand." {Act 13:11}
that they:
"The labour of the foolish wearieth every one of them, because he knoweth not how to go to the city." {Ecc 10:15} + "Thou art wearied in the greatness of thy way; [yet] saidst thou not, There is no hope: thou hast found the life of thine hand; therefore thou wast not grieved." {Isa 57:10} + "Why gaddest thou about so much to change thy way? thou also shalt be ashamed of Egypt, as thou wast ashamed of Assyria." {Jer 2:36}
