Joshua 19:46 Meaning and Commentary

Joshua 19:46

And Mejarkon, and Rakkon
Of the two first of these we read no where else.

with the border before Japho;
Japho is the same with Joppa, now called at this day Jaffa, a port in the Mediterranean sea, famous for being the place where Jonah took shipping, (See Gill on Jonah 1:3); and where the Apostle Peter resided some time, (See Gill on Acts 9:36); and (See Gill on Acts 9:38). It is not certain whether Joppa itself was in the tribe of Dan, or only on the borders of it; the coast of Dan reached "over against" it, as it may be rendered, and included the villages and little cities that were near it; for such there were, as Josephus F2 testifies.
