    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Chronicles 12:9

    Took away the treasures - Such a booty as never had before, nor has since, come into the hand of man.

    The shields of gold - These shields were the mark of the king's body-guard: it was in imitation of this Eastern magnificence that Alexander constituted his Argyraspides, adorned with the spoils taken from Darius. See Quintus Curtius, lib. viii., c. 5, et alibi.
