الآية رقم (10) - وَفِرْعَوْنَ ذِي الْأَوْتَادِ

(10) - (And [with] Pharaoh, owner of the stakes. (10))

The stakes are used to fix something in the ground. There are various explanations about it, among them is that it refers to Pharaoh’s soldiers who used to nail the people (up) on pegs. Another explanation is that it indicates the Pyramids which look like the fixed stakes. Or it refers to Pharaoh’s armies who enforced his commands for him, this is why it is used to be said about the person who has power in land: He has fixed stakes in it.
