Cities or countries which the Geshurites and Aramaeans, or Syrians, before inhabited; and which he took from them, together with other towns, which, being taken by him, were called after his name; the Targum is, the Geshurites and Aramaeans took the villages of Jair from them; that is, from the sons of Jair in later times; see ( Joshua 12:5 ) ( 13:13 )
with Kenath, and the towns thereof;
which Jair took by Nobah his general, and called it after his name, ( Numbers 32:42 ) , even sixty cities; see ( Deuteronomy 3:4-14 ) ( Joshua 13:30 )
all these belonged to the sons of Machir the father of Gilead:
being given him by Moses, ( Numbers 32:40 ) ( Deuteronomy 3:15 ) .
