Strong's Hebrew 341: Hating, an adversary
(13) Under their hand.--Or, at their side, meaning, under their command.

An army.--See margin. An armed force, or, warlike host (chel c?b?'); an expression only found besides in 1Chronicles 20:1.

Three hundred thousand . . . five hundred.--This fairly agrees with the statement respecting the total of Amaziah's army (300,000) in 2Chronicles 25:5.

That made war with mighty power.--Literally, a doer of battle with strength of might (sturdy strength, k?ach chayil, a unique phrase). Each chief was thus at the head of about a hundred and twenty men, who formed his troop (gedd, 2Chronicles 26:11). (Comp. the expression, "captains of hundreds.") The actual number in each century may have varied, as in the Roman army.

Verse 13. - An army; Hebrew, חֵיל צָבָא. "A force of host" would render this expression, though by an ambiguous use of the word חֵיל construct state of חַיִל. This verse gives the number of the body of the army proper, which shows it seven thousand five hundred more than that of Amaziah in the foregoing chapter (ver. 5). 26:1-15 As long as Uzziah sought the Lord, and minded religion, God made him to prosper. Those only prosper whom God makes to prosper; for prosperity is his gift. Many have owned, that as long as they sought the Lord, and kept close to their duty, they prospered; but when they forsook God, every thing went cross. God never continues either to bless the indolent or to withhold his blessing from the diligent. He will never suffer any to seek his face in vain. Uzziah's name was famed throughout all the neighbouring countries. A name with God and good people makes truly honourable. He did not delight in war, nor addict himself to sports, but delighted in husbandry.
