Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joshua 12:23 Verse 23. The king of Dor] The city of this name fell to the lot of the children of Manasseh, chap. xvii. 11. Bochart observes that it was one of the oldest royal cities in Phoenicia. The Canaanites held it, Judg. i. 27.
Antiochus Sydetes besieged it in aftertimes, but could not make himself master of it. See Bochart, Canaan, lib. i., c. 28, and Dodd.
The king of the nations of Gilgal] This is supposed to mean the higher Galilee, surnamed Galilee of the Gentiles or, nations, as the Hebrew word µywg goyim means. On this ground it should be read king of Galilee of the nations. Others suppose it is the same country with that of which Tidal was king, see Gen. xiv. 1. The place is very uncertain, and commentators have rendered it more so by their conjectures.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 23. The king of Dor, in the coast of Dor, one , etc.] Of which (see Joshua 11:2); it fell to the lot of Manasseh, but never was possessed by them, as were not Taanach and Megiddo, before mentioned, ( Joshua 17:11) ( Judges 1:27); the king of the nations of Gilgal, one ; not the place where Joshua encamped after he had passed Jordan, for that was then no city; the Septuagint version renders it the land of Galilee; and Dr. Lightfoot is of opinion that Galilee is meant, and in the Apocrypha: ``Who went forth by the way that leadeth to Galgala, and pitched their tents before Masaloth, which is in Arbela, and after they had won it, they slew much people.” (1 Maccabees 9:2) Galgala is spoken of as near to Arbel, a city in Galilee: Jerom takes this to be the same with Glagulis, which in his time was a village six miles from Antipatris to the north.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-24 - We have here the limits of the country Joshua conquered. A list is given of the kings subdued by Israel: thirty-one in all. This shows ho fruitful Canaan then was, in which so many chose to throng together This was the land God appointed for Israel; yet in our day it is one of the most barren and unprofitable countries in the world. Such is the effect of the curse it lies under, since its possessors rejected Chris and his gospel, as was foretold by Moses, De 29:23. The vengeance of righteous God, inflicted on all these kings and their subjects, for their wickedness, should make us dread and hate sin. The fruitful lan bestowed on his chosen people, should fill our hearts with hope an confidence in his mercy, and with humble gratitude __________________________________________________________________
