Silver, somewhat above a guinea: sicles are not expressed in Hebrew. (Haydock) Belt, the richest part of armour. Jonathan and Ajax made presents of their belts to David and Hector, 1 Kings xviii. 4. (Homer, Iliad H.) See Job xiii. 18. The Romans wore very splendid belts. Balteus et notis fulserunt cingula bullis. (Claud., Proserp. ii.)

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