2 Kings 3:5 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Was a sheepmaster - The original is נקד naked, of which the Septuagint could make nothing, and therefore retained the Hebrew word νωκηδ: but the Chaldee has מרי גיתי marey githey, "a sheepmaster;" Aquila has ποιμνιοτροφος; and Symmachus, τρεφων βοσκηματα; all to the same sense.

A hundred thousand lambs - The Chaldee and Arabic have a hundred thousand fat oxen.
