About 砝 fǎ

Hi! I would like to know the meaning of these sentences, taken from the Kangxi Zidian, about the character 砝 fǎ:

《廣韻》居怯切《集韻》訖業切,????音劫。硬也。又居盍切,音????。石聲。

???? should be the ancient form of 竝 bìng, I suppose: but I don't know what is: ???? .

Thanks to everybody.
Bye!

Additional Details:

I'm interested in understanding the etymology of the character, particularly where the component 去 is coming from.

Additional Details:

These are the two missing characters:

1°)
大大
一一

2°)
去力
