VERSE 13 - Therefore. * Ge 32:13-20 2Ch 32:2-8 Ps 112:5 Mt 10:16 1Co 14:20 - in the lower places.

This is no unusual thing in Palestine, even at the present day; people sowing their seed are often attended by armed men, to prevent the Arabs from robbing them of it. - habergeons. {Habergeon,} from the Teutonic {hals,} the neck, and {bergen,} to cover, defend, may be considered as signifying a breast-plate, though the Franco-Gallic {hautbergon} signifies a coat of mail; the original {shiryon,} we have already seen, denotes a corslet. VERSE 17 - bare burdens. * :10 - every one. That is, he had his arms at hand; and was as fully prepared to fight as to work. The builders could not possibly have made any progress, if they had literally held a weapon in one of their hands; but the expression is evidently figurative, implying that every man was a much a soldier as a builder. - with one. * Da 9:25 1Co 9:12; 16:9,13 2Co 6:7 Eph 6:11-20 Php 1:28 2Ti 2:3 * 2Ti 4:7 VERSE 18 - by his side.

It is wholly omitted by the LXX.; and one of De Rossi's MSS. reads, {meshallachah l hammayim,} "in order to send them to the water." GOTO NEXT CHAPTER - TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE INDEX
