SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:4 Desde el desierto y este Líbano hasta el gran río Eufrates, toda la tierra de los heteos hasta el gran mar del poniente del sol, será vuestro término.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joshua 1:4 Verse 4. From the wilderness and this Lebanon] Joshua appears to be standing with his face towards the promised land, and pointing out the different places, or their situation, with his hand, THIS Lebanon, &c. The utmost of their limits should be from the desert of Arabia Petraea on the SOUTH to Lebanon on the NORTH: and from the Euphrates on the EAST to the Mediterranean Sea on the WEST. The Israelites did not possess the full extent of this grant till the days of David. See 2 Samuel viii. 3, &c., and 2 Chron. ix. 26.
Land of the Hittites] These are generally reputed to have been the most hardy and warlike of all the Canaanitish nations; and as they occupied the mountainous countries on the south of the land of Canaan, it is natural to suppose that they would be the most difficult to subdue, and on this account, it is supposed, God particularly specifies these: "Ye shall subdue and possess even all the land of the Hittites," but it is probable that under this one term all the other nations are included, as it is certain they are in other places under the term Amorites. Great sea: The Mediterranean, called great in respect of the lakes in the land of Judea, such as the sea of Gennesareth, or the sea of Tiberias, and the Dead Sea, which were comparatively small lakes; but the Hebrews gave the name of sea, µy yam, to every large collection of waters.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 4. From the wilderness , etc.] The wilderness of Kadesh and Sin, on the border of Edom; in the southeast corner, as Jarchi says, (see Numbers 34:3); and this Lebanon ; which though on the other side Jordan, and at a considerable distance, being the northern border of the land towards Syria, might be seen afar off; or it is expressed, because it was a well known place, as Kimchi remarks: even unto the great river, the river Euphrates ; which was the eastern border of the land, and to which it reached in the times of Solomon, whose dominion extended thither, ( 1 Kings 4:21); according to Jarchi, this was its breadth from south to north: all the land of the Hittites : who, though only one of the seven nations of Canaan, are put for the rest, and the rather mentioned, because, as their name signifies, they were very formidable and terrible; among them dwelt the Anakim, and they themselves were very warlike and populous; or they are taken notice of particularly here, because they dwelt in the western part of the land described by them, so Kimchi thinks; according to Jarchi, this was its length from east to west: and unto the great sea : the Mediterranean sea, which was the western border of the land of Canaan, called great, in comparison of the sea of Tiberias, and the salt sea, which were in it: toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast ; the western coast, (see Gill on “ Deuteronomy 11:24”); this will be more fully verified in Christ, when his kingdom is from sea to sea, ( Psalm 72:8).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-4 - Joshua had attended upon Moses. He who was called to honour, had bee long used to business. Our Lord Jesus took upon him the form of servant. Joshua was trained up under command. Those are fittest to rule, who have learned to obey. The removal of useful men shoul quicken survivors to be the more diligent in doing good. Arise, go ove Jordan. At this place and at this time the banks were overflowed Joshua had no bridge or boats, and yet he must believe that God, havin ordered the people over, would open a way.
