John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 20:25

Jewels — Which they brought with them to corrupt any of Jehoshaphat's officers as they saw occasion: to procure necessaries for their vast army from time to time: and because they came as to triumph rather than to fight, being confident of the victory because of their numbers, and especially because they thought to surprize Jehoshaphat ere he could make any considerable preparations against them; God also permitting them to be puffed up to their own destruction.

dead bodies:
Instead of pegarim, "dead bodies," eight manuscripts and several ancient editions read begadim, "garments."
