And the children of Israel carried captive of their brethren
two hundred thousand women, sons and daughters
Which was a very large and unusual number to be carried captive; but having made such a slaughter of the men, and the rest being intimidated thereby, it was the more easily done:
and took away also much spoil from them;
wealth and riches out of their cities, and even from Jerusalem; for by the preceding verse it seems as if they came thither:
and brought the spoils to Samaria;
or rather "towards Samaria" F11, as some render the word; for they were not as yet come to it, nor did they bring it and their captives thither, see ( 2 Chronicles 9:15 ) .
