ALL TO BREAK . This phrase ( Judges 9:53 ) means altogether broke . The ‘all’ is used for altogether , as in 1 Kings 14:10 ‘till it be all gone’; and the ‘to’ is not the sign of the infin., but an adverb like Germ. zer , meaning thoroughly . Thus, ‘His brest to-broken with his sadil bowe’ Chaucer, Knight’s Tale , 2759. The correct spelling (as in the original ed. of AV [Note: Authorized Version.] ) is ‘all to brake.’
