John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 49:23

The archer have sorely grieved him — Tho' he now lived at ease and in honour, Jacob minds him of the difficulties he had formerly waded through. He had many enemies here called archers, being skilful to do mischief; they hated him, they shot their poisonous darts at him. His brethren were spiteful towards him, mocked him, stripped him, sold him, thought they had been the death of him. His mistress sorely grieved him, and shot at him, when she solicited his chastity; and then shot at him by her false accusations.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 49:23

(r) The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot [at him], and hated him:
