Joshua 15:51 MEANING

Joshua 15:51
(51) Goshen is thought by some to give a name to the land of Goshen in Joshua 10:41, but the place is insignificant, and not identified; and to take the land of Goshen as frontier or border land seems a very much more reasonable interpretation.

Giloh--the home of Ahithophel the Gilonite, David's and Absalom's counsellor (2 Samuel 15:12, &c).

Verse 51. - Giloh. Perhaps the city of Ahithophel.

15:20-63 Here is a list of the cities of Judah. But we do not here find Bethlehem, afterwards the city of David, and ennobled by the birth of our Lord Jesus in it. That city, which, at the best, was but little among the thousands of Judah, Mic 5:2, except that it was thus honoured, was now so little as not to be accounted one of the cities.And Goshen,.... Of Goshen in the land of Canaan; see Gill on Joshua 10:41,

and Holon, of which there is no other mention:

and Giloh was the city of Ahitophel, 2 Samuel 15:12,

eleven cities with their villages; the number agrees; this is the first division of cities in the mountains; a second follows.
