Judges 19:17: A Gracious Inquiry

Verse 17:[1] And when he had lifted up his eyes, he saw a wayfaring man in the street of the city: and the old man said, Whither goest thou? and whence comest thou?

[The old man saw him sitting, הָאֹרֵחַ[2]] One making a journey (Septuagint, Montanus); a traveler (Syriac, Jonathan, Vatablus, Arabic, Munster); one walking about (Pagnine); who had come from the way (Tigurinus).

[1] Hebrew: וַיִּשָּׂ֣א עֵינָ֗יו וַיַּ֛רְא אֶת־הָאִ֥ישׁ הָאֹרֵ֖חַ בִּרְחֹ֣ב הָעִ֑יר וַיֹּ֙אמֶר הָאִ֧ישׁ הַזָּקֵ֛ן אָ֥נָה תֵלֵ֖ךְ וּמֵאַ֥יִן תָּבֽוֹא׃

[2] אָרַח signifies to go, to wander, to journey.
