Joshua 19:18 Meaning and Commentary

Joshua 19:18

And their border was towards Jezreel
Which was a royal seat in the time of Ahab, ( 1 Kings 21:1 ) ; and according to Jerom was near to Maximianopolis; (See Gill on Hosea 1:5); and the same writer F21 says in his day a large village of this name was shown in the great plain between Scythopolis and Legion (he means the plain of Jezreel), and it was the border of Issachar:

and Chesulloth
was different from the Chislothtabor, ( Joshua 19:12 ) ; that, as Masius observes, was to the north, this to the south of Mount Tabor;

and Shunem
is a place well known for being the dwelling place of a certain woman in the times of Elisha, whose son the prophet raised from the dead, ( 2 Kings 4:8 ) ; Jerom calls it Sonam, where was the Shunammite woman; but this city here seems to be what he calls Salem, in the tribe of Issachar; and he adds, that there was shown in his day a village by this name, five miles from Mount Tabor to the south F23: according to Bunting F24, it was forty eight miles from Jerusalem to the north, not far from Nain.
