2 Chronicles 20:25  (King James Version)
And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much.
 


they found
Exodus 12:35 Exodus 12:36 ; 1 Samuel 30:19 1 Samuel 30:20 ; 2 Kings 7:9-16 ; Psalms 68:12 ; Romans 8:37

dead bodies
Instead of {pegarim,} "dead bodies," eight MSS. and several ancient editions read {begadim,} "garments." None of the ancient versions, except the Chaldee, have dead bodies: garments would therefore appear to be the true reading; and the succeeding clause should be rendered, "which they seized for themselves."

precious jewels
Exodus 3:22 ; Numbers 31:15 ; Judges 8:24-26 ; Proverbs 3:15

it was so much
