SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:22 Â¶ Y partidos de Cades los hijos de Israel, toda aquella congregación, vinieron al monte de Hor.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 22. And the children of Israel, [even] the whole congregation, journeyed from Kadesh , etc.] Not directly, but after they had continued there some time, and had furnished themselves with provisions for their journey, which they bought of the Edomites, (see Judges 11:17), “the whole congregation” is observed to Journey from hence, not one of them being lost by the king of Edom’s coming out against them; these went out complete and perfect, safe and sound: and came unto Mount Hor ; which, according to Bunting f292 , was forty eight miles from Kadesh; this had not its name from the Horim or Horites, nor they from that, their name being written with a different letter, but from Harar, a mountain, for the word itself signifies a mountain; wherefore it may be rendered, “a mountain of the mountain”, which Jarchi interprets a mountain on the top of a mountain. Josephus says, that here stood a city, formerly called Arce, since Petra, surrounded with an high mountain, where Aaron went and died; and Pliny says of Petra, that it is encompassed with inaccessible mountains.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 22-29 - God bids Aaron prepare to die. There is something of displeasure i these orders. Aaron must not enter Canaan, because he had failed in his duty at the waters of strife. There is much of mercy in them. Aaron though he dies for his transgression, dies with ease, and in honour. He is gathered to his people, as one who dies in the arms of Divine grace There is much significancy in these orders. Aaron must not ente Canaan, to show that the Levitical priesthood could make nothin perfect; that must be done by bringing in a better hope. Aaron submits and dies in the method and manner appointed; and, for aught tha appears, with as much cheerfulness as if he had been going to bed. It was a great satisfaction to Aaron to see his son, who was dear to him preferred; and his office preserved and secured: especially, to see in this a figure of Christ's everlasting priesthood. A good man woul desire, if it were the will of God, not to outlive his usefulness. Wh should we covet to continue any longer in this world, than while we ma do some service in it for God and our generation __________________________________________________________________
