2 Chronicles 14:7

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

The land is yet before us - i. e., “unoccupied by an enemy” - “the land is open to us to go where we please.” Compare Genesis 13:9. The fortification of the strongholds would be an act of rebellion against Egypt, and it might be expected that the Egyptians would endeavor to put a stop to it.
