no references listed for this verse









(23) With thee will I break in pieces captains and rulers.--The exhausting of all sorts and conditions of men culminates in the ruling caste. The Hebrew word for "captain" (Pekha) is interesting as connected with the Arabic, with which we are now familiar in the form Pacha (Frst, Lex.).

Verse 23. - Captains; rather, governors. It is the Hebraized form (pekhah) of the official name of an Assyrian or Babylonian governor (pahhat). Rulers; rather, viceroys; Hebrew, segamin (plural). The singular, sagan, is Hebraized from the Assyrian sakun, Babylonian sagun.
