The men who have been mentioned by name rose up and took the captives, and then
took the spoil and clothed all who were naked among them—dressed them—and
gave them sandals, and gave them something to eat and to drink, anointed them, carried all the feeble of them on donkeys and brought them to Jericho, the City of Date Palms trees, back to their brothers. Then they returned to Samaria.
“City of Date Palms.” The palm trees in Israel were date palms, not coconut palms.
