      to prevent the Arabs from robbing them of it.
    
    - habergeons.
      {Habergeon,} from the Teutonic {hals,} the neck, and {bergen,}
      to cover, defend, may be considered as signifying a
      breast-plate, though the Franco-Gallic {hautbergon} signifies
      a coat of mail; the original {shiryon,} we have already seen,
      denotes a corslet.
    
    
    VERSE 17 
     - bare burdens.
       * :10
    - every one.
      That is, he had his arms at hand; and was as fully prepared to
      fight as to work.  The builders could not possibly have made
      any progress, if they had literally held a weapon in one of
      their hands; but the expression is evidently figurative,
      implying that every man was a much a soldier as a builder.
    
    - with one.
       * Da 9:25 1Co 9:12; 16:9,13 2Co 6:7 Eph 6:11-20 Php 1:28 2Ti 2:3

     - I said.
       * :14; 5:7; 7:5
    
    
    VERSE 20 
     - our God.
       * Ex 14:14,25 De 1:30; 3:22; 20:4 Jos 23:10 Zec 14:3
    
    
    VERSE 21 
     - So we.
       * 1Co 15:10,58 Ga 6:9 Col 1:29
    
    
    VERSE 22 
     - every one.
       * Ne 11:1,2

       * Jud 5:11
      The original of this obscure clause is {ish shilcho hammayim,}
      which is rendered by Montanus, {vir missile suum aquas,} "a
      man his dart to the waters," of which it is difficult to make
      sense.  It is wholly omitted by the LXX.; and one of De
      Rossi's MSS. reads, {meshallachah l hammayim,} "in order to
      send them to the water."
