(18) The people.--The tribute-bearers, headed by Ehud, would carry their offerings in long and pompous array, according to the fashion of the East, which always aims at making a present seem as large as possible (see Genesis 32:16). "Fifty persons often bear what one man could easily carry" (Chardin, iii. 217).
