&c.] Whose original was from Scythia, or Cathaia in Tartary, that lies to the north of China; and who will bring with him many people from the Euxine and Caspian seas, and from the northern parts of lesser Asia; and the Turk is, by many interpreters, thought to be the king of the north, in ( Daniel 11:44 ) as before observed: thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses;
the Turkish armies consisting chiefly of horse, as has been observed on ( Ezekiel 38:4 ) : a great company, and a mighty army;
for quantity many, for quality strong and mighty. The Targum is, ``many armies, and much people;'' the Turks usually have large armies; (See Gill on Ezekiel 38:4).
