Clarke's Commentary on Judges 5 :30

Barnes's Commentary on Judges 5 :30

Render the latter part of the verse "a booty of dyed garments for Sisera, a booty of dyed garments and of party-colored cloth, a dyed garment and two party-colored clothes for the necks of the booty," the spoil or booty being either captive damsels, or captive cattle on whose necks these clothes are to be placed (either as ornament or as a burden; compare Judges 8:21, Judges 8:26). But possibly "the necks of the booty" may mean the backs or shoulders (of men or beasts) laden with booty.
