They have set her bed in the midst of the slain, with all her
The grave is called a bed, ( Isaiah 57:2 ) , whereon is put the sepulchral chest or coffin, in which the body is laid, and rests as on a bed. It may here design a stately sepulchre or coffin in it, with a magnificent monument over it for the king of Elam, with his army, and the generals of it slain in battle, placed all around him, in less stately beds, coffins, and graves, as explained in the next clause: her graves are round about him;
the king of Persia and his grave, surrounded with the graves of his soldiers and officers: all of them uncircumcised, slain by the sword: though their terror was
caused in the land of the living, yet have they borne their shame with
them that go down to the pit;
which is repeated for the confirmation of it: he is put in the midst of them that be slain;
the king of Elam or Persia; he is laid among the slain, having fallen with them, and his grave is placed in the midst of them.
