And David went up from thence
From the wilderness of Maon, having had a narrow escape for his life:
and dwelt in strong holds in Engedi;
another place in the tribe of Judah, and which lay in the wilderness of Judah, and from whence that is called the wilderness of Engedi; and here Dr. Lightfoot F23 thinks he penned the sixty third psalm, ( Psalms 63:1-11 ) , the wilderness about Engedi being the most desert of all other places, that being upon the borders of the dead sea; of this place, (See Gill on Joshua 15:62).
