(33) Neither did Naphtali.--See Joshua 19:32-38. Beth-shemesh.--The name means "house of the sun," and the place was probably a great centre of Baal-worship; but this Beth-shemesh in Naphtali is not the same as Ir-shemesh ("city of the sun") in Joshua 15:10, which was on the borders of Judah. It is the "mount of the sun" (Har-cheres) in Judges 1:35. In Isaiah 19:18, alluding to another "city of the sun" (On, i.e., Heliopolis), the prophet calls it not Is-ha-Cheres, "the city of the sun," but Ir-ha-Heres, "the city of overthrow," with one of those scornful plays on words of which the Jews were fond.

Beth-anath.--Nothing is known of this town. The name perhaps means "house of echo," and some identify it with Baneas or Paneas, a place at which the echo was famous.

Nevertheless.--The tribe of Naphtali was in the same unhappy condition as that of Asher, living in the midst of a Canaanite population of superior strength to themselves. They had, however, so far succeeded as to reduce the two chief towns (out of nineteen--Joshua 19:38) to a tributary condition.

1:21-36 The people of Israel were very careless of their duty and interest. Owing to slothfulness and cowardice, they would not be at the pains to complete their conquests. It was also owing to their covetousness: they were willing to let the Canaanites live among them, that they might make advantage of them. They had not the dread and detestation of idolatry they ought to have had. The same unbelief that kept their fathers forty years out of Canaan, kept them now out of the full possession of it. Distrust of the power and promise of God deprived them of advantages, and brought them into troubles. Thus many a believer who begins well is hindered. His graces languish, his lusts revive, Satan plies him with suitable temptations, the world recovers its hold; he brings guilt into his conscience, anguish into his heart, discredit on his character, and reproach on the gospel. Though he may have sharp rebukes, and be so recovered that he does not perish, yet he will have deeply to lament his folly through his remaining days; and upon his dying bed to mourn over the opportunities of glorifying God and serving the church he has lost. We can have no fellowship with the enemies of God within us or around us, but to our hurt; therefore our only wisdom is to maintain unceasing war against them.
