All; the chief men, chap. xxv. 18. Ezechiel and Mardocheus were in the number. Engraver. The first term means a workman in wood, stone; the latter seems to designate a mason, smith, or garrison-soldier; (Calmet) or one expert in making camps; (Sa) an engineer. (Tirinus) St. Jerome explains it of one who enchases jewels in gold. (Menochius) Hecateus and Demetrius (ap. Jos. and Clement of Alexandria) mention this transportation. (Du Hamel)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
