Psalm 45:3 (b) This expression is used to represent the almighty and active power of GOD in preparing for the judgment of His enemies. As the soldier girds on his sword and is ready for the battle, so the Psalmist asks GOD to prepare for the great day of the revelation of His majestic power.

Ezekiel 21:12 (c) We may use this type to illustrate the rather common practice of striking one's self upon the thigh, or the hip, or the leg, when in anger, or when insisting on some course of action.

Daniel 2:32 (b) Probably this represents the chronology of the kingdoms. The nation of Greece was to be the third after Nebuchadnezzar, even as the head is first, the breast is second, and the thigh is the third in the body.

Revelation 19:16 (b) This is indicative and symbolical of the mighty power and strength of the exalted CHRIST as He comes forth to rule and reign. The thigh, the place of strength and power in the body, is used to describe the strength and power of CHRIST when He comes to reign on the earth.
