      For an explanation of the words {tzori, nechoth,} and {lot,}
      here rendered respectively balm, spices, and myrrh, see on
      ch. 25 37:25.  {Devash,} honey, is supposed by some not to have
      been that produced by bees, but a syrup produced from ripe
      dates.  The Jewish doctors observe, that the word in 2 Ch
      5 31:5 signifies dates; and the Arabians, at this day, call the
      choicest dates preserved with butter, {dabous,} and the honey
      obtained from them, {dibs,} or {dabs.}  {Benanim,} nuts
      signifies pistachio nuts, the finest thing found in Syria;
      but, according to the others, a small nut, the produce of a
      species of the turpentine tree.  {Shekaidim} is certainly
      almonds.

      The Chaldee Paraphrast renders this clause, "Because the
      Hebrews eat the cattle which the Egyptians worship."  But, as
      we learn from ver. 16, compared with this verse, that the
      provision for the entertainment of the Egyptians themselves
      was animal food, this reason cannot be just.  The true reason
      seems to be that assigned by the LXX., [
                                           :] "For every shepherd
      is an abomination to the Egyptians."

     - messes.
       * 2Sa 11:8
    - was five times.
      Sir John Chardin observes, that "in Persia, Arabia, and the
      Indies, there are some houses where they place several plates
      in large salvers, and set one of these before each person, or
      before two or three, according to the magnificence of each
      house.  The great men of the state are always served by
      themselves, in the feasts that are made for them; and with
      great profusion, their part of each kind of provision being
      always double, treble, or a larger proportion of each kind of
      meat."
    
       * Ge 45:22 1Sa 1:5; 9:22-24
    - were merry.  Heb. drank largely.
       * Pr 31:6 Ec 9:7; 10:19 So 5:1 Hab 1:6 Mt 11:19 Joh 2:10
