SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:13 Y enviaron los hijos de Israel a los hijos de Rubén y a los hijos de Gad y a la media tribu de Manasés en la tierra de Galaad, a Finees hijo de Eleazar sacerdote,
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 13. And the children of Israel , etc.] In the land of Canaan: sent unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, unto the land of Gilead ; they were possessed of, and had now returned unto and dwelt in; hither they sent an embassy to them, to inquire into the truth of what they had heard, and the reason of it, before they went to war with them, or proclaimed it, or took any further steps towards it; and which they were obliged to do by the above law, when there was any suspicion of idolatry, and any good ground and reason for it, ( Deuteronomy 13:14); and at the head of this deputation was Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest ; a man zealous for the Lord of hosts, and his glory, of which there is an instance in ( Numbers 25:7,11,13); and so a fit person to be employed in this affair, who would be faithful, bold, and zealous, as well as capable of giving advice and counsel to both parties, if needful.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 10-20 - Here is the care of the separated tribes to keep their hold of Canaan' religion. At first sight it seemed a design to set up an altar agains the altar at Shiloh. God is jealous for his own institutions; we shoul be so too, and afraid of every thing that looks like, or leads to idolatry. Corruptions in religion are best dealt with at first. But their prudence in following up this zealous resolution is no les commendable. Many an unhappy strife would be prevented, or soon mad up, by inquiries into the matter of the offence. The remembrance of great sins committed formerly, should engage us to stand on our guar against the beginnings of sin; for the way of sin is down-hill. We ar all concerned to reprove our neighbour when he does amiss, lest we suffer sin upon him, Le 19:17. The offer made that they should be welcome to come to the land where the Lord's tabernacle was, and settl there, was in the spirit of true Israelites.
