Thine hands upon thine head.--The outward sign of depression and despair (2Samuel 13:19).

Thy confidences.--i.e., the grounds or objects of thy confidence.

Verse 37. - From him; i.e. from Egypt, personified as a man (so whenever a people is referred to; a laud is represented as a woman).

As a matter of fact, "the King of Egypt came not again any more out of his laud" after Necho's crushing defeat at Carehemish (2 Kings 24:7; comp. Jeremiah 37:5).
