CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
That also was accounted a land of giants - That was accounted the land or territory of the Rephaim.
Zamzummims - Supposed to be the same as the Zuzim, Genesis 14:5. Of these ancient people we know very little; they were probably inconsiderable tribes or clans, "pursuing and pursued, each other's prey," till at length a stronger totally destroyed or subdued them, and their name became either extinct or absorbed in that of their conquerors. From the 10th to the 12th, and from the 20th to the 23d verse inclusive (Deuteronomy 2:10-12, Deuteronomy 2:20-23), we have certain historical remarks introduced which do not seem to have been made by Moses, but rather by Joshua or Ezra.

That they could not have made a part of the speech of Moses originally, needs little proof.

This country, that was excluded, was something barren. The Talmudists speak thus …

"Let us pass through your country. We will stay on the main road; we will not turn aside to the right or to the left.
