(24) Built an altar.--Altars, like the altar Ed (Joshua 22:34), built by the Transjordanic tribes, were not always intended for purposes of sacrifices, but to witness some great event or Divine appearance (Genesis 31:48, Genesis 26:25; Exodus 17:15).

Jehovah-shalom.--"The Lord is peace." We find similar names in Jehovah-jireh, "the Lord will provide" (Genesis 22:14); Jehovah-nissi, "the Lord my banner" (Exodus 17:15); and Jehovah-tsidkenn, "the Lord our righteousness" (Jeremiah 23:6). (Comp. Ezekiel 48:35.) See Pearson on the Creed, Art. 2. . . .

Verse 24. - For naming altars built in commemoration of particular events see Genesis 22:14; Genesis 31:47-49; Genesis 33:20; Joshua 22:34, etc.
