to take it out of one's hide

Hey there,

what is the meaning of the above phrase? - Is it the same as in ‘to take it out on somebody’?

Thank you,

Hello Steve, and welcome.

The phrase, putting it mildly, is to beat someone up, or do them physical harm for their failing to do something they promised to do, or, ie; repay a debt.

ah I see.
Thank you very much!
