SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:35 Y quiso el amorreo habitar en el monte de Heres, en Ajalón y en Saalbim; mas cuando la mano de la casa de José tomó fuerzas, los hicieron tributarios.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Judges 1:35 Verse 35. The Amorites would dwell in Mount Heres] They perhaps agreed to dwell in the mountainous country, being unable to maintain themselves on the plain, and yet were so powerful that the Danites could not totally expel them; they were, however, laid under tribute, and thus the house of Joseph had the sovereignty. The Septuagint have sought out a literal meaning for the names of several of these places, and they render the verse thus: "And the Amorites began to dwell in the mount of Tiles, in which there are bears, and in which there are foxes." Thus they translate Heres, Aijalon, and Shaalbim.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 35. But the Amorites would dwell in Mount Heres in Aijalon, and in Shaalbim , etc.] And they would not suffer the Danites to dwell in the valley, a fruitful and delightful part of their country, terrifying them with their iron chariots, which in the vale they could make use of to great advantage; so neither would they let them dwell alone in the mountainous part of their tribe, but would dwell with them, particularly in three places mentioned: where Mount Heres was is not certain; it signifies the “sun”; very probably it had its name from the worship of the sun on it, or from the sun standing still near it; for Aijalon, where that miracle was wrought, is next mentioned. Perhaps it might be near to Timnathheres, which was in Mount Ephraim, ( Judges 2:9); since Ephraim assisted in making these places tributaries; of the two cities, Aijalon and Shaalbim, (see Joshua 19:42); yet the hand of the house of Joseph prevailed, so that they became tributaries ; or “the hand of [it] became heavy” f22 ; by which it does not clearly appear whether the hand of Joseph was made heavy, and to hang down, by the Amorites; or whether it was heavy upon them, and so prevailed over them, as our version; but the Septuagint puts it out of doubt, reading the words, “and the hand of the house of Joseph was heavy upon the Amorites;” the Ephraimites being near to the tribe of Dan, and observing how they were pressed by the Amorites, took up arms in their favour, and obliged the Canaanites of the above places to become tributaries to the Danites.
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 __________________________________________________________________
