SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:5 y la tierra de los giblitas, y todo el Líbano hacia donde sale el sol, desde Baal-gad a las raíces del monte de Hermón, hasta entrar en Hamat.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joshua 13:5 Verse 5. The land of the Giblites] This people dwelt beyond the precincts of the land of Canaan, on the east of Tyre and Sidon. See Ezek. xxvii. 9; Psa. lxxxiii. 7; their capital was named Gebal. See Dodd.
All Lebanon] See on chap. xi. 17.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 5. And the land of the Giblites , etc.] This was another country that remained unconquered; the Greeks call it Byblus, and near to which Pliny speaks of a place called Gabale, and is now called Gibyle; it is said to be “pleasantly situated by the seaside, and at present it contains but a little extent of ground, but yet more than enough for the small number of its inhabitants:” it was in greater splendour, and its inhabitants of more fame, in the times of Ezekiel, ( Ezekiel 27:9); and all Lebanon toward the sunrising ; or east of the land; all that inhabited that mountain remained unconquered, though the conquest was carried as far as the borders thereof: from Baalgad, under Mount Hermon ; of which (see Joshua 11:17); unto the entering into Hamath : which was the north border of the land; (see Numbers 34:8).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-6 - At this chapter begins the account of the dividing of the land of Canaan among the tribes of Israel by lot; a narrative showing the performance of the promise made to the fathers, that this land shoul be given to the seed of Jacob. We are not to pass over these chapter of hard names as useless. Where God has a mouth to speak, and a hand to write, we should find an ear to hear, and an eye to read; and may God give us a heart to profit! Joshua is supposed to have been about on hundred years old at this time. It is good for those who are old an stricken in years to be put in remembrance of their being so. God considers the frame of his people, and would not have them burdene with work above their strength. And all people, especially old people should set to do that quickly which must be done before they die, les death prevent them, Ec 9:10. God promise that he would make the Israelites masters of all the countries yet unsubdued, through Joshu was old, and not able to do it; old, and not likely to live to see it done. Whatever becomes of us, and however we may be laid aside a despised, broken vessels, God will do his own work in his own time. We must work out our salvation, then God will work in us, and work with us; we must resist our spiritual enemies, then God will tread the under our feet; we must go forth to our Christian work and warfare then God will go forth before us.
