CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
From Beer-sheba to Mount Ephraim - Before the separation of the ten tribes, in speaking of the extent of the land it was said, From Dan to Beer-sheba; but since that event, the kingdom of Judah was bounded on the south by Beer-sheba, and on the north by the mountains of Ephraim.

'And Jehoshaphat the king of Judah returned to his house in peace to Jerusalem. 2.

Do not show partiality in judging; hear both small and great alike. Do not be afraid of anyone, for judgment belongs to God. Bring me any case too hard for you, and I will hear it."
Appoint judges and officials for each of your tribes in every town the LORD your God is giving you, and they shall judge the people fairly.
