CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
5:17 Gilead - Sometimes taken strictly for that part of the land beyond Jordan which fell to the half - tribe of Manasseh, and sometimes both for that part of Manasseh's, and for Gad's portion, as Josh 13:24 - 25,29 - 31, and so it seems to be understood here; and the land Gilead is here put for the people or inhabitants of it, Gad and Manasseh. Beyond Jordan - In their own portions, and did not come over Jordan to the help of the Lord, and of his people, as they ought to have done.

His breaches - Either in the creeks of the sea, or, in their broken and craggy rocks and caves.

You will be led out through the ruins of the wall; you will be thrown from your fortresses," says the LORD.
