SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:43 A Beser en el desierto, en tierra de la llanura, de los rubenitas; y a Ramot en Galaad, de los gaditas; y a Golán en Basán, de los de Manasés.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 4:43 Verse 43. Bezer in the wilderness] As the cities of refuge are generally understood to be types of the salvation provided by Christ for sinners; so their names have been thought to express some attribute of the Redeemer of mankind. See them explained Josh. xx. 7, 8.
I SUPPOSE the last nine verses of this chapter to have been added by either Joshua or Ezra.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 43. [Namely], Bezer in the wilderness , etc.] In ( Joshua 20:8), it is added “upon the plain”; this perhaps was the wilderness of Moab, in the plains of it, the same with Bozrah, (see Jeremiah 48:24 Deuteronomy 2:8) and in the Apocrypha: “Hereupon Judas and his host turned suddenly by the way of the wilderness unto Bosora; and when he had won the city, he slew all the males with the edge of the sword, and took all their spoils, and burned the city with fire,” (1 Maccabees 5:28) it was in the plain country of the Reubenites , or lay in that part of the country which was allotted to them, and which they gave to the Levites, ( 1 Chronicles 6:78), and Ramoth in Gilead of the Gadites ; it lay in that part of Mount Gilead, and among the cities of it, which fell to the share of the tribe of Gad, and was by them given to the Levites, ( 1 Chronicles 6:80), this city is frequently in Scripture called Ramothgilead; (see 1 Kings 4:13 22:20) and Golan in Bashan, of the Manassites , or “Gaulon”, as the Septuagint, and from hence the country round about was called Gaulanitis; all Bashan, the kingdom of Og, was given to the half tribe of Manasseh, and out of it this city was given by them to the Levites, ( 1 Chronicles 6:71), and appointed a city of refuge: now as these cities were typical of Christ, there may be something observed in the names of them as agreeing with him. “Bezer” signifies “a fortified place”; Christ is the fortress, mountain, and place of defence for his people, and strong hold to which the prisoners of hope turn, the strong tower whither the righteous run and are safe. “Ramoth” signifies “exaltations”; which may point both at the exaltation of Christ in human nature at the right hand of God, and the exaltation of his people by him, who are raised by him from a low estate to sit among princes, and to inherit the throne of glory, and by whom he is exalted in his person, office, and grace. “Golan” signifies “revealed” or” manifested”: so Christ has been manifest in the flesh, and is revealed to sinners, when they are called by his grace; to whom they flee for refuge, and lay hold on him, the hope set before them.
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 __________________________________________________________________
