    Definitions for 2 Chronicles 20:25

    Spoil - Booty; prey.

    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Chronicles 20:25

    Both riches with the dead bodies - For פגרים peparim, dead bodies, בגדים begadim, garments, is the reading of eight MSS. in the collections of Kennicott and De Rossi, and in several ancient editions. None of the versions have dead bodies except the Chaldee. The words might be easily mistaken for each other, as the פ pe, if a little faint in the under dot might easily pass for a ב beth; and we know that the ר resh and ד daleth, are frequently interchanged and mistaken for each other, both in Hebrew and Syriac. I believe garments to be the true reading; and as to the clause which they stripped off for themselves, it should be understood thus: Which they seized for themselves, etc.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 20:25

    Riches with the dead bodies - Several manuscripts give another reading: "riches, and garments."
