    VERSE 1
    - Shiloh.
      Shiloh was situated on a hill in the tribe of Ephraim, though
      near the borders of Benjamin, about fifteen miles north of
      Jerusalem, and, according to Eusebius, twelve, or according to
      Jerome, ten miles (south) from Shechem or Nablous.  It was but
      a little north from Bethel or Ai, and near the road from
      Shechem to Jerusalem.  (Jud 21:19.)  In Jerome's time, Shiloh
      was ruined; and nothing remarkable was extant, but the
      foundations of the altar of burnt offerings which had been
      erected when the tabernacle stood there.

    VERSE 9 
     - described.
      The surveyors seem to have formed some kind of map of the
      country, as well as a description of it in writing.  The
      Egyptians, from the situation of their fields, as annually
      overflowed by the Nile, acquired great skill in mensuration
      and land surveying; and some of the Israelites had, no doubt,
      learned these from them, without a knowledge of which they
      could not properly have divided the land.  This is probably
      the first act of surveying on record.

       * :28; 15:63 Jud 1:8,21; 19:10
    - En-rogel.
       * Jos 15:7 2Sa 17:17 1Ki 1:9

     - En-shemesh.
      The fountain of the Sun; whether a town, or simply a fountain,
      is uncertain.
    
    - Geliloth.
      Geliloth is probably the same as Gilgal; though as the word
      may signify border or limits, some think that it is probably
      not the proper name of a place:  "And went forth towards the
      borders which are over against the ascent to Adummim."  Others
      render Geliloth circuits or roundings, or the hills about
      Jordan, {tumuli Jordanis.}  Vulgate:  {pertransit usque ad
      tumulos.}

       * Jos 3:16; 12:3 Ge 14:3; 19:25 Nu 34:3 De 3:17
    - this was the.
      The borders of this tribe on the north were the same as those
      of Ephraim on the south, and his southern boundaries the same
      as the northern borders of Judah; but drawn from west to east,
      instead of from east to west (ch. 1 15:1-12; ch. 16.)  As the
      inheritance of Benjamin did not extend to the Mediterranean
      sea, and no other sea or lake is known to have been in those
      parts, perhaps this depression, "compassed the corner of the
      sea southward," (ver. 14,) should be rendered, "made a circuit
      on the side next the sea towards the south;" for it seems to
      connect the northern border, in the preceding verses, with the
      southern which follows.
    
    VERSE 20
    
    
    VERSE 21

       * 1Sa 13:17
    
    
    VERSE 24 
     - Ophni.
      Probably the same as Gophna (['Ayin] being often pronounced as
      G); which, according to Josephus, was about fifteen miles from
      Jerusalem, towards Shechem, says Eusebius, (Onom. in [pharaux
      botrous.])
    
    - Gaba.
      Gaba or Geba, according to Josephus, was not far from Rama,
      forty stadia from Jerusalem, and, according to Eusebius, five
      miles from Gophna, towards Shechem.

    - Ramathaim-zophim.
       * Jos 7:17; 15:34 Jer 31:15 Mt 27:57
    - Arimathea.  Beeroth.
      Eusebius says Beeroth was seven miles from Jerusalem, towards
      Nicopolis or Emmaus.  Jerome, however, reads Neapolis or
      Shechem; but Reland prefers the former.
    
    
    VERSE 26 
     - Mizpeh.
      Situated not far from Rama, forty stadia from Jerusalem.
    
       * Jud 10:17
