Dictionary Mode: easton:Captive
Captive @ one taken in war. Captives were often treated with great cruelty and indignity (kjvKings:20:32; Joshua:10:24; Judges:1:7; 2Samuel:4:12; Judges:8:7; 2Samuel:12:31; 1Chronicles:20:3). When a city was taken by assault, all the men were slain, and the women and children carried away captive and sold as slaves Isaiah:20; 47:3; 2Chronicals:28:9-15; Psalms:44:12; Joel:3:3), and exposed to the most cruel treatment Nahum:3:10; Zechariah:14:2; Esther:3:13; 2Kings:8:12; Isaiah:13:16-18). Captives were sometimes carried away into foreign countries, as was the case with the Jews Jeremiah:20:5 Jeremiah:39:9-10 Jeremiah:40:7 ).
