(1) It came to pass after this also.--Rather, And it came to pass afterwards, i.e., after the battle of Ramoth-Gilead, and Jehoshaphat's reformation of law and religion.

And the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites.--This is an attempt to get a reasonable sense out of a corrupted text. What the Heb. says is: And the sons of Ammon, and with them some of the Ammonites. So the Vulg., "et filii Ammon et cum eis de Ammonitis." Transpose a single Hebrew letter, and there results the intelligible reading: And the sons of Ammon, and with them the Maonites (Heb., Me'-nim. See on 1Chronicles 4:41-42.) The Maonites are mentioned again (2Chronicles 26:7) in company with Arabs. They appear to have been a tribe, whose chief seat was Maon, on the eastern slopes of the chain of Mount Seir, after which they are called "sons," or "inhabitants of Mount Seir" in 2Chronicles 20:10; 2Chronicles 20:22-23. Accordingly Josephus (Ant. ix. 1, ? 2) calls them a multitude of Arabs. [The LXX. reads: "And with them some of the Minaioi," a name which possibly represents the me'inim of the Heb. text of 1Chronicles 4:41. Syriac, "and with them men of war;" Arabic, "brave men." Perhaps the expression rendered and with them--we'immahem--is a relic of an original reading, and the Maonites; and the some of the Ammonites (m?h?'ammonim) which follows, is merely a gloss on an obscure name by some transcriber]. . . .

Verse 1. - The children of Moab. In 2 Kings 3:5-27 we read of a rebellion on the part of Moab, and of the victory of Israel's king Joram, together with Jehoshaphat and the King of Edom, over Moab, now probably in quest of revenge. Beside the Ammonites. The reading of our Authorized Version here cannot stand. The Septuagint gives us some guidance in the name "the Minoei." By the mere transposing of one Hebrew character in the name Ammonites, we obtain the name Maonites (read מֲעונִים for עַמּונִים), i.e. the people of Maon, a town near Petra, no doubt Edomitish (see vers. 10, 22, 23), and possibly the same with the Septuagint Minoei (see also 2 Chronicles 26:7).
