      1  The two and forty journeys of the Israelites.
    50  The Canaanites are to be destroyed.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - with their armies.
       * Ex 12:37,51; 13:18
    - under the hand.
       * Jos 24:5 1Sa 12:8 Ps 77:20 Mic 6:4
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - journeys.
       * Nu 9:17-23; 10:6,13 De 1:2; 10:11
    
    
    VERSE 3 
     - they departed.
       * Ge 47:11 Ex 1:11; 12:37
    - in the first.
       * Ex 12:2; 13:4
    - with an high.
       * Ex 14:8 Ps 105:38 Isa 52:12 Mic 2:13
    
    
    VERSE 4 
     - buried.
       * Ex 12:29,30 Ps 105:36
    - upon their gods.
       * Ex 12:12; 18:11 Isa 19:1 Zep 2:11 Re 12:7-9
    
    
    VERSE 5 
     - removed.
       * Ex 12:37
    - Rameses.
      This appears to have been the capital of the land of Goshen,
      and the rendezvous of the Israelites.  It is placed by Jerome
      in the extremity of Egypt, in the Arsenoitic nome.
    
    
    VERSE 6 
     - departed.
       * Ex 13:20
    - Succoth.
      Supposed to be the Such' mentioned by Pliny and the Scenas
      Mandrorum, in the Antonine Itinerary.  The Editor of Calmet
      places it at Birket el Hadji, or "the Pilgrims' pool," a few
      miles east of Cairo.
    
    - Etham.
      This was evidently situated towards the north point of the Red
      sea.  Calmet supposes it to be the same as Buthus or Butham,
      mentioned by Herodotus, who places it in Arabia, on the
      frontiers of Egypt.
    
    
    VERSE 7 
     - they removed.
       * :8 Ex 14:2,9
    - Baal-zephon.
      Calmet supposes this to be the Clysma of the Greeks, and the
      Kolzum of the Arabians.  His learned Editor thinks the true
      situation of Baal-zephon was some miles more northerly than
      the present Suez.
    
    
    VERSE 8 
     - departed.
       * Ex 14:21,22-31; 15:22-26
    - Etham.
      Called Shur in Exodus; but Dr. Shaw says that Shur is a
      particular district of the wilderness of Etham.
    
    VERSE 9
        * Ex 15:27
    
    
    VERSE 10 
     - Elim.
       * Ex 16:1; 17:1
    
    VERSE 11
        * :11
    
    VERSE 12
        * :12
    
    VERSE 13
    
    
    VERSE 14 
     - Rephidim.
       * Ex 17:1-8; 19:2
    
    VERSE 15
        * Ex 16:1; 19:1,2
    
    
    VERSE 16 
     - they removed.
       * Nu 10:11-13,33 De 1:6
    - Kibroth-hattaavah.
      That is, the graves of lust.
    
       * Nu 11:4,34
    
    VERSE 17
        * Nu 11:35
    
    
    VERSE 18 
     - they departed.
       * Nu 12:16
    - Rithmah.
      Rithmah was a place in the wilderness of Paran, near Kadesh
      Barnea; probably so called from the great number of juniper
      trees, as the name signifies, growing in that district.
    
    
    VERSE 19 
     - Rimmon-parez.
      Probably the same as Rimmon, a city of Judah and Simeon,
      Jos 15:32, 7 19:7.
    
       * :19
    
    VERSE 20
    
    
    VERSE 21 
     - Libnah.
       * De 1:1
    - Laban.  Rissah.
      This is supposed, apparently with good reason, by the Editor
      of Calmet, to be the same with the present El Arish, a village
      three quarters of a league from the Mediterranean, and the
      last stage in Syria, on the road to Egypt.
    
    VERSE 22
        * :22
    
    VERSE 23
    
    
    VERSE 24 
     - Shapher.
      The Editor of Calmet, who supposes the Israelites to be now in
      the regular track from Gaza to Egypt, is of opinion that mount
      Shapher is the ancient name of mount Cassius, Catjeh, or
      Cati‚, a huge mole of sand, almost surrounded by the
      Mediterranean, on which was built a temple to Jupiter Cassius.
      Thevenot states, that at the village of Cati‚ there is a well
      of water unpleasant for drinking; but two miles off, another
      whose water is good after standing a little.
    
       * :24
    
    VERSE 25
        * :25
    
    VERSE 26
        * :26
    
    VERSE 27
        * :27
    
    VERSE 28
        * :28
    
    VERSE 29
    
    
    VERSE 30 
     - Moseroth.
      This is supposed by Mr. C. Taylor, to be Ain el Mousa,
      (probably a corruption of Moseroth) or fountains of Moses, at
      the head of the western gulf of the Red sea, about seven or
      eight miles east from Suez, seven or eight days' journey from
      Gaza, and five or six from Sinai.
    
       * De 10:5
    - Mosera.
    
    
    VERSE 31 
     - Bene-jaakan.
       * Ge 36:27 De 10:6 1Ch 1:43
    
    
    VERSE 32 
     - Hor-hagid-gad.
       * De 10:7
    - Gudgodah.
    
    
    VERSE 33 
     - Jotbathah.
      Mr. Taylor, who imagines the Israelites to be now in the track
      of the Mecca pilgrims, supposes Jotbathah, which is described
      as "a land of brooks of water," to be Callah Nahar, a torrent,
      said to be good water by Dr. Shaw.
    
       * De 10:7
    - Jotbath.
    
    
    VERSE 34 
     - Ebronah.
      Probably at Abiah Ailana, or Sat el Acaba, stations nearer
      Accaba.
    
       * :34
    
    
    VERSE 35 
     - Ezion-gaber.
      Dr. Shaw places this port on the western shore of the Elanitic
      gulf of the Red Sea.  He says it is now called Meenah el
      Dsahab, or the golden port, by the Arabs; because it was from
      this place that Solomon sent his ships to Ophir.  He supposes
      it to be about sixty miles from Sinai; and it is probable that
      it was near the present Accaba, i.e., the end (of the sea).
    
       * Nu 14:25 De 2:8 1Ki 9:26; 22:48
    - Ezion-geber.
       * 2Ch 20:36
    
    
    VERSE 36 
     - the wilderness of Zin.
       * Nu 13:21; 20:1; 27:14 De 32:51
    
    
    VERSE 37 
     - Kadesh.
       * Nu 20:22,23; 21:4
    
    VERSE 38
        * Nu 20:24-28 De 10:6; 32:50
    
    VERSE 39
    
    
    VERSE 40 
     - See on ch.
       * Nu 21:1-3,4-9
    
    VERSE 41
        * Nu 21:4
    
    
    VERSE 42 
     - Punon.
      Called Phainon by Eusebius, who places it between Petra and
      Zoar.  Perhaps it is the present Tafyle, mentioned by
      Burckhardt.
    
       * :42
    
    
    VERSE 43 
     - pitched in Oboth.
       * Nu 21:10
    
    
    VERSE 44 
     - Ije-abarim.  or, heaps of Abarim.
       * Nu 21:11
    
    VERSE 45
    
    
    VERSE 46 
     - Dibon-gad.
       * Nu 32:34 Isa 15:2 Jer 48:18
    - Almon-diblathaim.
       * Jer 48:22
    - Beth-diblathaim.
       * Eze 6:14
    - Diblath.
    
    
    VERSE 47 
     - the mountains.
      These mountains were a ridge of rugged hills east of Jordan,
      and north and west of the Arnon.  Nebo, Pisgah, and Peor, were
      but different names of the hills of which they were composed.
      Eusebius and Jerome inform us, that some part of them, as one
      went up to Heshbon, retained the old name of Abarim in their
      time; and that the part called Nebo was opposite Jericho, not
      far from the Jordan, six miles west from Heshbon, and seven
      east from Livias.  Dr. Shaw describes them as "an exceeding
      high ridge of desolate mountains, no otherwise diversified
      than by a succession of naked rocks and precipices; rendered
      in some places the more frightful by a multiplicity of
      torrents, which fall on each side of them.  This ridge is
      continued all along the eastern coast of the Dead sea."  Mount
      Nebo is now called Djebel Attarous; and is described as a
      barren mountain, the highest point in the neighborhood, with
      an uneven plain on the top.  Burckhardt, Travels, pp. 369,
      370.
    
       * Nu 21:20 De 32:49; 34:1
    
    
    VERSE 48 
     - in the plains.  See on ch.
       * Nu 22:1
    
    
    VERSE 49 
     - Beth-jesimoth.
      Probably the place called Bethsimath by Eusebius, east of
      Jordan, and about ten miles south of Jericho.
    
       * Jos 13:20 Eze 25:9
    - Abel-shittim.  or, the plains of Shittim.
      This place, according to Josephus, (Ant. 1. iv. c. 7,   1.
      Bell.  1. v. c. 3,) who calls it Abela, was 60 furlongs east
      of Jordan.

       * Nu 26:53-56
    - give the more inheritance.  Heb. multiply his inheritance.
       * Nu 26:54
    - give the less inheritance.  Heb. diminish his inheritance in
      the place.
