1 Samuel 31:5 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Hormah in the Negeb (Joshua 15:30) is Zephath, the present Zepta, on the western slope of the Rakhma plateau (see at Joshua 12:14). Cor-ashan, probably the same place as Ashan in the shephelah, upon the border of the Negeb, has not yet been discovered (see at Joshua 15:42). Athach is only mentioned here, and quite unknown. According to Thenius, it is probably a mistaken spelling for Ether in the tribe of Simeon (Joshua 19:7; Joshua 15:43). Hebron, the present el Khulil, Abraham's city (see at Joshua 10:3; Genesis 23:17).
