And they smote all the cities round about Gerar
The cities of the Philistines, who were auxiliaries and confederates with these Ethiopians, and colonies from them, according to Theodoret, and who says, about Eleutheropolis was a place, called, in his time, Geraron Saton:
for the fear of the Lord came upon them;
so that they had no power to defend themselves, and oppose the men of Judah:
and they spoiled all the cities;
of the goods and substance that were in them:
for there was exceeding much spoil in them;
great wealth and riches of one kind or another.
