SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:26 Y el hombre se fue a la tierra de los heteos, y edificó una ciudad, a la cual llamó Luz; y éste es su nombre hasta hoy.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Judges 1:26 Verse 26. The land of the Hittites] Probably some place beyond the land of Canaan, in Arabia, whither this people emigrated when expelled by Joshua. The man himself appears to have been a Hittite, and to perpetuate the name of his city he called the new one which he now founded Luz, this being the ancient name of Beth-el.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 26. And the man went into the land of the Hittites , etc.] With his family; Kimchi says this was not one of the seven nations of Canaan; and it is very clear from this narrative, that the land this man went to was not in the land of Canaan; though it is certain a people of this name formerly dwelt there, ( Genesis 15:20 23:3 26:34); and the land of Canaan is called the land of the Hittites, ( Joshua 1:4); these either might flee to another country upon Joshua’s entry into the land of Canaan, or a colony of them from thence might settle elsewhere, to which this man chose to go, who might be originally of them: and built a city ; his family was numerous, and he a man of wealth, and was allowed to carry all his substance with him: and called the name of it Luz ; in memory of the place he left, and had long lived in. There is a city called Loussa, among the cities which Josephus says were taken by the Jews from the Arabians; and which is very probably the Lysa of Ptolemy f19 , which he places in Arabia Petraea, and might be the same with this Luz; and, if so, this shows the land this man went into was in Edom, which is not unlikely; there is another Luza, which Jerom says fell to the lot of the sons of Joseph, near Sichem, three miles from Neapolis: which [is] the name thereof unto this day : the time of the writing of this book; (see Gill on “ Judges 1:21”).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 21-36 - The people of Israel were very careless of their duty and interest Owing to slothfulness and cowardice, they would not be at the pains to complete their conquests. It was also owing to their covetousness: the were willing to let the Canaanites live among them, that they migh make advantage of them. They had not the dread and detestation of idolatry they ought to have had. The same unbelief that kept their fathers forty years out of Canaan, kept them now out of the ful possession of it. Distrust of the power and promise of God deprive them of advantages, and brought them into troubles. Thus many believer who begins well is hindered. His graces languish, his lust revive, Satan plies him with suitable temptations, the world recover its hold; he brings guilt into his conscience, anguish into his heart discredit on his character, and reproach on the gospel. Though he ma have sharp rebukes, and be so recovered that he does not perish, yet he will have deeply to lament his folly through his remaining days; an upon his dying bed to mourn over the opportunities of glorifying God and serving the church he has lost. We can have no fellowship with the enemies of God within us or around us, but to our hurt; therefore ou only wisdom is to maintain unceasing war against them __________________________________________________________________
