John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Numbers 32:40

And Moses gave Gilead unto Machir the son of Manasseh
That is, to the children of Machir, who went and took it; though some say, as Aben Ezra observes, that Machir himself was now alive, and that it was given to him, but that is not probable; for, supposing him to be living when the children of Israel came out of Egypt, all that came from thence, who were twenty years old and upwards, died in the wilderness, excepting two, see ( Numbers 32:11 Numbers 32:12 ) ,

and he dwelt therein;
that is, the family of the Macharite; see ( Numbers 26:29 ) .
