Joshua 15:54 Meaning and Commentary

Joshua 15:54

And Humtah
Of Humtah we nowhere else read;

and Kirjatharba, which [is] Hebron;
of Kirjatharba we read frequently; (See Gill on Joshua 14:15);

and Zior;
Jerom says F15, that in his time there was a village shown by the name of Sihor, between Aelia (or Jerusalem) and Eleutheropolis, in the tribe of Judah:

nine cities with their villages;
which is exactly their number, as expressed; here ends the second division, or of the cities in the hill country of Judea; a third follows.
