Joshua 19:34

34 And then the coast turneth westward to Aznothtabor, and goeth out from thence to Hukkok, and reacheth to Zebulun on the south side, and reacheth to Asher on the west side, and to Judah upon Jordan toward the sunrising*.

Joshua 19:34 Meaning and Commentary

Joshua 19:34

And [then] the coast turneth westward to Aznothtabor
This was the southern border, reaching from east to west; it began at Aznothtabor, which Jerom F7 says was a village in his time belonging to the country of Diocaesarea, in the plains; there is another place called Chislothtabor, on the borders of Zebulun, ( Joshua 19:12 ) ;

and goeth out from thence to Hukkok:
there the southern border ended, which was in the border of Asher, and is the same with Helkath, ( Joshua 19:25 ) ; with which compare ( 1 Chronicles 6:75 ) ;

and reacheth to Zebulun on the south side, and reacheth to Asher on
the west side and to Judah upon Jordan towards the sunrising;
so that as it was bounded by Lebanon, on the north, near to which some of the cities were, mentioned in ( Joshua 19:33 ) , it had Zebulun on the south, Asher on the west, and Jordan to the east; for by Judah is not meant the tribe of Judah, from which Naphtali was at a great distance, but a city so called, as Fuller F8 seems rightly to conjecture.
