Joshua 13:27

Joshua 13:27

And in the valley, Betharam
The same with Bethharan, (See Gill on Numbers 32:36):

and Bethnimrah;
sometimes called Nimrah, ( Numbers 32:3 Numbers 32:36 ) ; near to which were some waters, called the waters of Nimrim, ( Isaiah 15:6 ) ; It was in Jerom's F16 time a large village; it seems to have its name from leopards, which perhaps had their haunts hereabout:

and Succoth:
the place where Jacob pitched his tent after he had passed over Jabbok; it is called in the Jerusalem Talmud F17 Thaarabah:

and Zaphon;
which in the same Talmud is Amatho or Amathus, which Jerom says F18 is a village beyond Jordan, twenty one miles from Pella to the south, though he places it in the tribe of Reuben:

the rest of the kingdom of Sihon king of Heshbon;
which was not given to the tribe of Reuben, ( Joshua 13:21 ) ;

Jordan and [his] border;
that is, the cities which were near it, as Kimchi; or that were upon the bank of it, as Jarchi;

[even] unto the edge of the sea of Chinnereth;
the same with the lake of Gennesaret, ( Luke 5:1 ) ;

on the other side Jordan eastward;
the other from that in which the inheritance of Gad lay, which was beyond Jordan, from the land of Canaan.
