SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:1 Â¶ La segunda suerte salió por Simeón, por la tribu de los hijos de Simeón conforme a sus familias; y su heredad fue entre la heredad de los hijos de Judá.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joshua 19:1 Verse 1. The second lot came forth to Simeon] In this appointment the providence of God may be especially remarked. For the iniquitous conduct of Simeon and Levi, in the massacre of the innocent Shechemites, Gen. xxxiv. 25-31, Jacob, in the spirit of prophecy, foretold that they should be divided in Jacob, and scattered in Israel, Gen. xlix. 7. And this was most literally fulfilled in the manner in which God disposed of both these tribes afterwards. Levi was scattered through all Palestine, not having received any inheritance, only cities to dwell in, in different parts of the land; and Simeon was dispersed in Judah, with what could scarcely be said to be their own, or a peculiar lot. See the note on Gen. xlix. 7.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And the second lot came forth to Simeon , etc.] That is, the second of the seven lots, of which Benjamin’s was the first; otherwise there were the two lots of Judah and Joseph, which preceded both these: [even] for the tribe of the children of Simeon, according to their families ; for though many of their cities had been given by lot to the tribe of Judah, yet it seems as if there were others they had by a special lot cast for them, as many as were sufficient for their families: and their inheritance was within the inheritance of the children of Judah ; which was done partly because this was but a small tribe, and particularly because the lot put up, which fell to the tribe of Judah, was too large for it, more than they could occupy, too much being put to this lot by the first measurers of the land; and partly to fulfil the prophecy of Jacob, that the Simeonites should be scattered in Jacob, and divided in Israel, ( Genesis 49:7); and hence it is that the lots of these two tribes lying together, and being so intermixed, that the tribe of Judah called upon that of Simeon to join them in fighting against the Canaanites, and taking out of their hands the cities that belonged to them, ( Judges 1:3).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-9 - The men of Judah did not oppose taking away the cities within their border, when convinced that they had more than was right. If a tru believer has obtained an unintended and improper advantage in an thing, he will give it up without murmuring. Love seeketh not her own and doth not behave unseemly; it will induce those in whom it richl dwells, to part with their own to supply what is lacking to their brethren.
