And not only the king but all Israel must have felt this to occasion a great loss, for the tribute annually paid by Moab consisted of not less than an hundred thousand lambs and an hundred thousand rams, with the wool. Such a blow as that was not to be quietly put up with. The loss itself was great, and it is likely the revolt...
