Joshua 11:13 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

With this to inspirit them, the Israelites fell upon the enemy and smote them, chasing them towards the north-west to Sidon, and westwards as far as Misrephothmaim, and into the plain of Mizpah on the east. Sidon is called the great (as in Joshua 19:28), because at that time it was the metropolis of Phoenicia; whereas even by the time of David it had lost its ancient splendour, and was outstripped by its daughter city Tyre. It is still to be seen in the town of Saida, a town of five or six thousand inhabitants, with many large and well-built houses (see Rob. Pal. iii. p. 415, and Movers, Phnizier, ii. 1, pp. 86ff.). Misrephothmaim (mentioned also at Joshua 13:6), which the Greek translators have taken as a proper name, though the Rabbins and some Christian commentators render it in different ways, such as salt-pits, smelting-huts, or glass-huts (see Ges. Thes. p. 1341), is a collection of springs, called Ain Mesherfi, at the foot of the promontory to which with its steep pass the name of Ras el Nakhra is given, the scala Tyriorum or Passepoulain of the Crusaders (see V. de Velde, Mem. p. 335, and Ritter, Erdk. xvi. p. 807). מצפּה בּקעת (Eng. Ver. "the valley of Mizpeh") is probably the basin of the Huleh lake and of Nahr Hasbany, on the western side of which lay the land of Mizpah (Joshua 11:3).

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

in their [heb] on their heap The Vulgate, Syriac, Onkelos and Weterland render {al tillom}, `on their hills.' As the cities of the plain might be easily attacked and carried, Joshua destroyed; but as those on mountains, hills, or other eminences, might be retained by him with little trouble, prudence would dictate their preservation

Jeremiah 30:18 Thus said the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob's tents, and have mercy on his dwelling places...
