Phassur. This name signifies, increase and principality; and therefore is here changed to Magor-Missabib, or "fear on every side "to denote the evils that should come upon him in punishment of his opposing the word of God. (Challoner) Aquila renders Posseur, "a stranger "and St. Jerome, "blackness of visage. "(Haydock) It may also mean, "one who causes paleness. "(Calmet) Mogur may signify "fear or distress. "Septuagint and Syriac, "an exile. "(Haydock) He deserved to be thus treated, ver. 6. (Calmet) He would be terrified by many enemies. (Worthington)

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