John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Chronicles 5:23

And the children of the half tribe of Manasseh dwelt in the
land
Not in the land of the Hagarites, but in the land of Gilead and Bashan beyond Jordan, given them by Moses. The writer, having reckoned the genealogies of some of the principal men of Reuben and Gad, proceeds to give a short account of some principal men in this half tribe:

they increased from Bashan;
where they first settled, and extended their possessions:

unto Baalhermon and Senir, and unto Mount Hermon;
mountains which lay to the north of the land of Canaan, and are what geographers call Antilibanus.
