These were thy merchants in all sorts of things
Either all before mentioned throughout the chapter, or rather those only in the preceding verse; also these were merchants in various things after mentioned, and which were the best and most perfect of the kind, as the word F4 used signifies: in blue cloths, and broidered work;
these the Assyrians took of them, a colour in which they much delighted; see ( Ezekiel 23:6 ) : and in chests of rich apparel bound with cords, and made of cedar,
among thy merchandise;
rich apparel, such as scarlet cloaks, as the Targum, and blue cloths as before; these were well packed up in chests made of "cedar", which they had from Lebanon, and so fit to be put on board a ship, and carried into any part of the world. The Targum adds,
``and sealed with a signet;''as things well packed up and bound sometimes are, being of worth and value. Some render it, "in chains"; or, "chains were among thy merchandise" F5; such as chains of gold, wore about the neck; and take the word to be of the sam meaning with that in ( Song of Solomon 1:10 ) .
