Joshua 15:52 MEANING

Joshua 15:52
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.Arab,.... Arab is the same Jerom (i) calls Ereb, and was in his time a village in the south, and was called Heromith:

and Dumah; Duma, Jerom says (k), was a large village in the south, also on the borders of Eleutheropolis, seventeen miles from it:

and Eshean, of which we have no account.

(i) De loc. Heb. fol. 91. B. (k) Ibid. fol. 90. K.
