44:1 At Migdol - It seems the Jews that went into Egypt had planted themselves at these four places. Migdol was a city upon the borders of the Red Sea. Noph was a city, which the Greeks and Latines called Memphis; it is thought to be that, which is now called Cairo. Pathros was the province, since called Thebais.
44:14 For none - Only such shall escape, as have been forced into Egypt against their wills; and as did not fall in with the idolatry of the Egyptians.
44:15 All the men - It should seem those that did it were mostly women, and that they did it with some privacy, so that all their husbands did not know of it.
44:26 The Lord liveth - There shall not any be left alive of the Jews that are in Egypt, to swear The Lord God liveth.
44:29 This shall be a sign - Signs are usually antecedent to the thing signified, but the word is taken in a larger notion in this place for that which should attend the thing signified by it.
