        This word occurs only in Eze 27:11 A variety of explanations of the term have been offered.
        1. One class renders it "pygmies."
        2. A second treats it as a geographical or local term.
        3. A third gives a more general sense to the word "brave warriors." Hitzig suggests "deserters." After all, the rendering in the LXX. --"guards"-- furnishes the simplest explanation.
