And Jehoiakim gave the silver and gold to Pharaoh
The one hundred talents of silver and the talent of gold, which he imposed as a tribute upon the land:
but he taxed the land to give the money according to the commandment of
he did not take it out of his own treasures nor the treasures of the house of the Lord, which perhaps might be exhausted, but levied it of the people of the land:
he exacted the silver and gold of the people of the land,
required them to pay it in:
of everyone according to his taxation, to give it unto Pharaohnechoh:
everyone was taxed according to his abilities, in proportion to what he was worth, or to the estate he was possessed of.
