Joshua 9:17 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
9:17 And Kirjath - jearim - Which cities were subject to Gibeon, the royal city, chap.10:2.
But when the people of Gibeon heard what Joshua had done to Jericho and Ai,
They answered, "Your servants have come from a very distant country. We have heard of the might of the LORD your God and of all he did in Egypt.
Three days after making the treaty, they learned that these people actually lived nearby!
But the Israelites did not attack the towns, for the Israelite leaders had made a vow to them in the name of the LORD, the God of Israel. The people of Israel grumbled against their leaders because of the treaty.
From there the boundary extended from the top of the mountain to the spring at the waters of Nephtoah, and from there to the towns on Mount Ephron. Then it turned toward Baalah (that is, Kiriath-jearim).
There were also Kiriath-baal (that is, Kiriath-jearim) and Rabbah--two towns with their surrounding villages.
The boundary then made a turn and swung south along the western edge of the hill facing Beth-horon, ending at the village of Kiriath-baal (that is, Kiriath-jearim), a town belonging to the tribe of Judah. This was the western boundary.
