(11) Brought--i.e., continually. Such is the force of the participle.

Presents.--An offering, i.e., tribute (minchah;. 2Chronicles 17:5).

And tribute silver.--Rather, and silver, a load, or burden, i.e., a great quantity (mass?'), 2Chronicles 20:25. As if, "silver as much as they could carry"--a natural hyperbole. Not all the five states of the Philistines were subject to Jehoshaphat. (Comp. 2Samuel 8:1.)

The Arabians.--'Arbi'im, here only equivalent to 'Arbiyim (2Chronicles 26:7), and 'Arbim (2Chronicles 21:16). They are in each case grouped with the Philistines. The nomad Bedawin conquered by Asa (2Chronicles 14:15) appear to be meant here; or else some tribes which recognised the overlordship of Jehoshaphat after his reduction of Edom (2Chronicles 20:22, sqq.). . . .

Verse 11. - The presents were probably enough in the nature of tribute, the "fixed rate" of which is sometimes alluded to (1 Kings 4:21; 1 Kings 10:25; 2 Samuel 8:2), but it is doubtful whether the word מַשָּׂא purports to say this. The word means "bearing" or "carrying," and then "a burden, load, or weight." The expression (2 Chronicles 20:25), "more than they could carry away," where this word is used, favours the idea that the meaning here is "silver of great weight." Probably the moral significance and historical interest, whether of this statement respecting the Philistines, or the following respecting the Arabians, lies in the fact that both of them brought, without more ado, their payments, and did not seek to slip out of their engagements with Judah and Judah's king. Note, for confirmation of this view, 2 Kings 3:4, 5.
