_ _ he rather, “they.”
_ _ them rather, “it,” that is, the prey.
Your spoil That treasure which you have raked together, by spoiling divers people. Gathered By the Jews at Jerusalem, when you flee away. Like the caterpillar As caterpillars gather and devour the fruits of the earth. As locusts As locusts, especially when they are armed by commission from God, come with great force, and run hither and thither.
And your spoil shall be gathered [like] the gathering of the (h) caterpiller: as the running to and fro of locusts shall (i) he run upon them.
(h) You who as caterpillars destroyed with your number the whole world, will have no strength to resist your enemies the Chaldeans: but will be gathered on a heap and destroyed.
(i) Meaning, the Medes and Persians against the Chaldeans.

So a measure of fine flour was [sold] for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, according to the word of the LORD.
2 Chronicles 14:13 And Asa and the people that [were] with him pursued them unto Gerar: and the Ethiopians were overthrown, that they could not recover themselves; for they were destroyed before the LORD, and before his host; and they carried away very much spoil.
2 Chronicles 20:25 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.
