Verse 11
And their border went up toward the sea, and Maralah, and reached to Dabbasheth, and reached to the river that is before Jokneam;

22; Judges 4:6,12; Psalms 89:12
Daberath
Josephus, who calls this town Dabaritta, or Darabitta, places it in the plain of Jezreel, or Esdraelon, on the confines of Samaria and Galilee. It is probably the Dabira which Jerome place towards amount Tabor, in the district of Diocęsarea; and the Debora or Daboura, mentioned by travellers as a village at the foot of mount Tabor.

Jezreel
1 Kings 21:1,15,16; 2 Kings 8:29; 9:15,30; Hosea 1:4,5
Chesulloth
Probably the same as Chisloth-tabor.
Shunem
1 Samuel 28:4; 1 Kings 1:3; 2:17,21; 2 Kings 4:8,12

And Hapharaim, and Shion, and Anaharath,

And their border was Helkath, and Hali, and Beten, and Achshaph,
Helkath
2 Samuel 2:16
Beten
Probably the same as Bebeten or Batnai, mentioned by Eusebius, eight miles east from Ptolemais; and perhaps the Ecbatana which Pliny places not far from Ptolemais.
Achshaph
11:1; 12:20

Verse 26
And Alammelech, and Amad, and Misheal; and reacheth to Carmel westward, and to Shihorlibnath;

Situated, according to Eusebius, near mount Carmel, on the sea coast.

1 Kings 9:13

Verse 28
And Hebron, and Rehob, and Hammon, and Kanah, even unto great Zidon;
Rehob
Kanah
This seems a different Cana from that in Lower Galilee; and to be that which is placed in some maps east of Tyre, between Libanus and Antilibanus, and south of the river Cassimer, or Leitani.
John 2:1,11; 4:46
Cana
great.

Tyre
Heb. Tzor.
2 Samuel 5:11; Isaiah 23:1-18; Ezekiel 26:1-28
Achzib
Genesis 38:5; Judges 1:31; Micah 1:14

Verse 30

Aphek
12:18; 13:4; 1 Samuel 4:1; 1 Kings 20:30
Rehob
28; 21:31; Numbers 13:11

Verse 31

Genesis 49:20; Deuteronomy 33:24,25

Judges 4:11
Zaanaim

Verse 34

turneth
Deuteronomy 33:23
Aznoth-tabor
Apparently the same as Azanoth, which Eusebius places in the plain not far from Diocęsarea or Sephoris.
12,22
Judah
As it is certain that the tribe of Naphtali did not border upon that of Judah, there being several tribes between, we should probably omit Judah, with the Septuagint; though it may have been a town so called.

Verse 35
And the fenced cities are Ziddim, Zer, and Hammath, Rakkath, and Chinnereth,
Hammath
Genesis 10:18; Numbers 13:21; 34:8; 34:8; 1 Kings 8:65

12:22; 20:7

Verse 38
And Iron, and Migdalel, Horem, and Bethanath, and Bethshemesh; nineteen cities with their villages.
Beth-anath
Eusebius mentions a town of the name of [Batanaian] fifteen miles from Cęsarea. (Diocęsarea or Sephoris probably.)
Beth-shemesh

Verse 41
And the coast of their inheritance was Zorah, and Eshtaol, and Irshemesh,
Zorah
Situated on the frontiers of Dan and Judah, tens miles north from Eleutheropolis, towards Nicoplis, according to Eusebius, not far from Caphar Sorek.
15:33
Zoreah
Judges 13:2,25; 16:31; 18:2; 1 Chronicles 2:53; 2 Chronicles 11:10
Irshemesh
Supposed by some to be the same as Beth-shemesh in the tribe of Judah; but this latter city is evidently distinguished from it by being assigned by the tribe of Judah to the Levites. (ch. 21:16.) Ir-shemesh rendered [polis Sammaus] by the LXX., seems to be the same as Emmaus or Nicopolis, 22 miles south-east from Lydda, according to the Old Jerusalem Itinerary.

Verse 42
And Shaalabbin, and Ajalon, and Jethlah,
Shaalabbin
Eusebius calls it [Salaba] and places it in Samaria: and Jerome calls it Salebi, (Eze 48,) and joins it to Ajalon and Emmaus.
Judges 1:35
Shaalbim
Ajalon. This appears to be the Ajalon which Jerome places two miles from Nicopolis or Emmaus, in the road to Jerusalem.
10:12; 21:24; 1 Samuel 14:31

Verse 43
And Elon, and Thimnathah, and Ekron,
Thimnathah
Genesis 38:12; Judges 14:1,2
Timnath
Ekron. Ekron is placed by Eusebius between Ashdod and Jamnia, eastward; and probably the ruined village of Tookrair, mentioned by Dr. Richarson, situated on the top of a hill, and which he says seems to have been a place of considerable consequence, occupies its site.
15:45; 1 Samuel 5:10; Amos 1:8

Verse 44
And Eltekeh, and Gibbethon, and Baalath,
Gibbethon
21:23; 1 Kings 15:27; 16:15
Baalath
1 Kings 9:18

Verse 45
And Jehud, and Beneberak, and Gathrimmon,
Gath-rimmon
21:24

Verse 46
And Mejarkon, and Rakkon, with the border before Japho.
before
or, over against. Japho. or, Joppa.
Jonah 1:3; Acts 9:36,43; 10:8

Verse 47
And the coast of the children of Dan went out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their father.
the coast
Judges 1:34,35; 18:1-29
called Leshem
Judges 18:7,27,29
Laish

Verse 49
When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them:
gave
Ezekiel 45:7,8

Verse 50
According to the word of the LORD they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.
Timnath-serah
24:30; Judges 2:9
Timnath-heres
1 Chronicles 7:24

Verse 51
These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the LORD, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. So they made an end of dividing the country.
