CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He shall burn them, and carry them away captives - Some of these gods, such as were of wood, he will burn; those of metal he will carry away. Some of them were of gold. See below.
Shall array himself with the land of Egypt - Shall take all its wealth, and all its grandeur; shall take all its spoils.
