Instead of {pegarim,} "dead bodies," eight MSS. and several ancient editions read {begadim,} "garments."

Having previously sought deliverance by fasting and prayer, and received the assurance of it with grateful joy, Jehoshaphat and his army returned immediate and fervent thanks and praise to the Lord, who had in so wonderful a manner performed his promise. Scott, who quotes the following from Bp. Patrick: "They did not return every man to his own home; but first went back to Jerusalem, to bless the Lord again for hearing their prayer and making good his promises." - blessed. * Ex 15:1-19 2Sa 22:1 Ps 103:1,2; 107:21,22 Lu 1:68 Re 19:1-6 - the name. * Ge 28:19; 32:20 Ex 17:15 1Sa 7:12 Isa 62:4 Ac 1:19 - unto this day. * 2Ch 5:9 VERSE 27 - forefront.

Instead of celebrating his own heroism or the valour of his troops on this memorable occasion, this excellent prince sung with his whole army the praises of Jehovah, the God of hosts, who disposes of the victory according to his pleasure. This conduct was becoming the descendant and successor of David, the man after God's own heart, and of a religious people, the peculiar inheritance of Jehovah. * 2Sa 6:5 1Ch 13:8; 23:5; 25:6 Ps 57:8; 92:3; 149:3; 150:3-5 * Re 14:2,3 VERSE 29 - the fear. * 2Ch 17:10 Ge 35:5 Ex 23:27 Jos 5:1 2Ki 7:6 - they had heard. * Ex 15:14-16 Jos 2:9-11; 9:9-11 VERSE 30 - his God. * 2Ch 14:6,7; 15:15 Jos 23:1 2Sa 7:1 Job 34:29 Pr 16:7 Joh 14:27 VERSE 31 - A.M. 3090-3115.
