    1 The borders of the lot Judah. 13 Caleb's portion and conquest. 16 Othniel, for his valour, hath Achsah, Caleb's daughter, to wife. 18 She obtains a blessing of her father. 21 The cities of Judah. 63 The Jebusites unconquered. VERSE 1 - A.M. 2561. B.C. 1443. An. Ex. Is. 48. This then was the lot. The geography of the sacred writings presents many difficulties, occasioned by the changes which Canaan has undergone, especially for the last 2,000 years. Many of the ancient towns and villages have had their names so totally changed that their former appellations are no longer discernible; several lie buried under their own ruins, and others have been so long destroyed that not a vestige of them remains. On these accounts it is very difficult to ascertain the precise situation of many places mentioned in these chapters; but this cannot in any measure affect the truth of the narrative. * Jos 14:2 Nu 26:55,56 - even to the. * Nu 33:36,37; 34:3-5 Eze 47:19 VERSE 2 - the salt sea. * Jos 3:16 Ge 14:3 Nu 34:3 Eze 47:8,18 - bay.

Eusebius mentions two cities, called Adatha, one towards Gaza, and the other east of Lydda. - and Gede-rothaim. or, or. fourteen cities.

Josephus says it was 300 stadia from Jerusalem, and not far from the lake Asphaltites; and consequently it could not have been far from Jericho and the mouth of the Jordan. It was celebrated for the abundance of its palm-trees. * 1Sa 23:29 2Ch 20:2 VERSE 63 * Jud 1:8,21 2Sa 5:6-9 1Ch 11:4-8 Ro 7:14-21 GOTO NEXT CHAPTER - TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE INDEX
