Aha - When thou shouldest have pitied, thou didst proudly insult over my people.

Verse 7

The side - That part of his country which was best fortified. Bethjeshimoth - An ancient city; it was a fortress toward the desert, which watched lest any should make an inroad on the country.

Verse 15
It - Israel.

Verse 16
The Cherethim - The bowmen, the strength of Philistia. The remnant - Who had escaped the sword of Samuel, David, Hezekiah, and of Psammetichus king of Egypt.
