Isaiah 10:30

Isaiah 10:30

Lift up that voice, O daughter of Gallim
In a mournful and lamentable manner, and yet with such a clear loud voice, as to be heard afar off: the word is sometimes used for making a joyful sound, and of the neighing of horses. The inhabitants of Gallim are meant by its daughter; of this place was Phalti, who married Michal, Saul's daughter; very probably it was in the tribe of Benjamin. Jerom


FOOTNOTES:

F6 makes mention of Accaron, a village, which was called Gallim.

Cause it to be heard unto Laish;
if this was the place the Danites took, and called it Dan, it was on the northern border of Judea, in the furthermost part of the land; hence the phrase, from Dan to Beersheba; it was near to Caesarea or Paneas, from whence the river Jordan took its rise; and was a great way off, either of Gallim or Anathoth, for the voice of them to be heard.

O poor Anathoth!
this was a city in the tribe of Benjamin, ( Joshua 21:18 ) it was the native place of the Prophet Jeremiah, ( Jeremiah 1:1 ) according to Josephus F7, it was twenty furlongs from Jerusalem; and, according to Jerom F8, three miles: it is called "poor", because it was but a poor mean village; or because it would now become so, through the ravages of the Assyrian army.
