Joshua 12:23 Meaning and Commentary

Joshua 12:23

The king of Dor, in the coast of Dor, one
Of which see ( Joshua 11:2 ) ; it fell to the lot of Manasseh, but never was possessed by them, as were not Taanach and Megiddo, before mentioned, ( Joshua 17:11 ) ( Judges 1:27 ) ;

the king of the nations of Gilgal, one;
not the place where Joshua encamped after he had passed Jordan, for that was then no city; the Septuagint version renders it the land of Galilee; and Dr. Lightfoot


FOOTNOTES:

F19 is of opinion that Galilee is meant, and in the Apocrypha:

``Who went forth by the way that leadeth to Galgala, and pitched their tents before Masaloth, which is in Arbela, and after they had won it, they slew much people.'' (1 Maccabees 9:2)

Galgala is spoken of as near to Arbel, a city in Galilee: Jerom F20 takes this to be the same with Glagulis, which in his time was a village six miles from Antipatris to the north.
