    Definitions for 2 Samuel 10:8

    Array - To put on; to clothe.

    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Samuel 10:8

    At the entering in of the gate - This was the city of Medeba, as we learn from 1 Chronicles 19:7.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Samuel 10:8

    Came out - From their city, Rabbah Deuteronomy 3:11, Deuteronomy 3:15 or 20 miles from Medeba, where 1 Chronicles 19:7 the Syrian army was encamped. Medeba (modern Madeba) was taken from Sihon Numbers 21:30, and fell to Reuben Joshua 13:9, Joshua 13:16; in the reign of Ahaz it seems to have returned to Moab Isaiah 15:2, and in the time of the Maccabees to the Amorites (1 Macc. 9:36, 37). In church history it was a bishop's see.

    In the field - i. e. in the plain below the round rocky hill on which the city stood.
