John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 41. Then Moses severed three cities , etc.] To be cities of refuge, according to the command of God, ( Numbers 35:14) this he did when he had conquered the two kingdoms of the Amorites, that God had given them for an inheritance to the tribes of Reuben and Gad, and the half tribe of Manasseh, ( Deuteronomy 4:38) though Jarchi says, and so other Jewish writers, that persons were not received into them until the three cities appointed in the land of Canaan were separated for the like use; (see Gill on “ Numbers 35:14”) and these were, on this side Jordan, toward the rising sun ; on that side of the river on which the plains of Moab lay, and the kingdoms of the Amorites, and to the east of Jordan: so Jarchi remarks, “on that side which is on the east of Jordan;” (see Joshua 20:8).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 41-49 - Here is the introduction to another discourse, or sermon, Mose preached to Israel, which we have in the following chapters. He set the law before them, as the rule they were to work by, the way the were to walk in. He sets it before them, as the glass in which the were to see their natural face, that, looking into this perfect law of liberty, they might continue therein. These are the laws, given when Israel was newly come out of Egypt; and they were now repeated. Mose gave these laws in charge, while they encamped over against Beth-peor an idol place of the Moabites. Their present triumphs were a powerfu argument for obedience. And we should understand our own situation a sinners, and the nature of that gracious covenant to which we ar invited. Therein greater things are shown to us than ever Israel saw from mount Sinai; greater mercies are given to us than they experience in the wilderness, or in Canaan. One speaks to us, who is of infinitel greater dignity than Moses; who bare our sins upon the cross; an pleads with us by His dying love __________________________________________________________________
