His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.









(32) Provided the king of sustenance.--An old use of the preposition "of," meaning with. The word is the same here as that translated in the next verse "feed thee," and there is an especial fitness in the use of the same word in both cases which is lost in the English Version. It is translated "nourish" in Genesis 45:11; Genesis 47:12; Genesis 1:21, &c., and "sustain" in 1Kings 17:9, Nehemiah 9:21, &c. The king proposes to return Barzillai's service in kind, but multiplied manifold.
