And King Rehoboam made in their stead brazen shields
For the king of Egypt had so stripped him of his gold, that he was not able to replace golden ones:
and committed them into the hands of the chief of the guard;
or "runners" F16, that went before the king, or attended him as his bodyguard when he went abroad:
which kept the door of the king's house;
which kept guard night and day in their turns.
