And upon Kerioth
Which once belonged to the tribe of Judah, ( Joshua 15:25 ) ; from this place Judas Iscariot is by some thought to have his name; as if it was "Ish Kerioth", "a man of Kerioth". Grotius takes it to be the Goiratha of Ptolemy: and upon Bozrah;
not in Idumea, but in Moab; the same with Bezer, ( Joshua 21:36 ) ; and upon all the cities of the land of Moab, for and near;
all the rest of the cities not named, whether nearer or farther off from Aroer.
