Verse 21

Ar.; "cum braccis suis", V. L. or breeches are meant:

their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments : their turbants on their heads, which were usually wore in those countries; and their stockings and shoes, and other under garments, as waistcoats and shirts; which through haste or negligence, or with design, were kept on them, to make their torment the greater; but were intended by the Lord to make the miracle the more conspicuous.

and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace ; in the manner and circumstances before related.
