Judges 2:9

Judges 2:9

And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in
Timnathheres
In ( Joshua 24:30 ) ; it is called Timnathserah, the letters of "serah" being here inverted, make "heres", which sometimes is used for the sun, ( Job 9:7 ) ; and therefore some observe, that the whole name signifies the figure of the sun, which the Jews say was put on his monument, in commemoration of the miracle of the sun standing still at his request, and had this inscription on it,

``this is he that caused the sun to stand still;''

but this is not very probable, since it might have had a tendency to idolatry, the sun being what was the first object of idolatrous worship among the Heathens, and had the greatest show of reason for it:

in the mount of Ephraim, on the north side of the hill Gaash;
(See Gill on Joshua 24:30).
