they sat:
"The posts went out, being hastened by the king's commandment, and the decree was given in Shushan the palace. And the king and Haman sat down to drink; but the city Shushan was perplexed." {Est 3:15} + "Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people [as] they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD." {Psa 14:4} + "Such [is] the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness." {Prv 30:20} + "That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph." {Ams 6:6}
Ishmeelites:
"Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty [pieces] of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt." {Gen 37:28} + "And the Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh's, [and] captain of the guard." {Gen 37:36} + "And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou [art] with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. ... And he will be a wild man; his hand [will be] against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren." {Gen 16:11-12} + "Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name [was] Keturah. ... And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these [were] the children of Keturah." {Gen 25:1-4} + "These [are] the sons of Ishmael, and these [are] their names, by their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their nations. ... And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur, that [is] before Egypt, as thou goest toward Assyria: [and] he died in the presence of all his brethren." {Gen 25:16-18} + "And he took his brethren with him, and pursued after him seven days' journey; and they overtook him in the mount Gilead." {Gen 31:23} + "The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;" {Psa 83:6}

"So he fled with all that he had; and he rose up, and passed over the river, and set his face [toward] the mount Gilead." {Gen 31:21} + "And their father Israel said unto them, If [it must be] so now, do this; take of the best fruits in the land in your vessels, and carry down the man a present, a little balm, and a little honey, spices, and myrrh, nuts, and almonds:" {Gen 43:11} + "[Is there] no balm in Gilead; [is there] no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?" {Jer 8:22}
spicery:
Nechoth, is rendered by the LXX "incense;" Syriac, "resin;" Samaritan, "balsam;" Acquila, "storax;" which is followed by Bochart. This drug is abundant in Syria, and here Moses joins with it resin, honey, and myrrh; which agrees with the nature of the storax, which is the resin of a tree of the same name, of a reddish colour, and peculiarly pleasant fragrance.
balm:
Tzeri, which in Arabic, as a verb, is to flow, seems to be a common name, as balm or balsam with us, for many of those oily, resinous substances, which flow spontaneously, or by incision, from various trees or plants; accordingly the ancients have generally interpreted it resin.
myrrh:
Lot, is probably, as Junius, Deut. Dieu, Celsius, and Ursinus contend, the same as the Arabic ladan, Greek λαδανον, and Latin ladanum.
