Joshua 18:17 MEANING

Joshua 18:17
Verse 17. - Geliloth (see Joshua 15:7).

18:11-28 The boundaries of each portion were distinctly drawn, and the inheritance of each tribe settled. All contests and selfish claims were prevented by the wise appointment of God, who allotted the hill and the valley, the corn and pasture, the brooks and rivers, the towns and cities. Is the lot of any servant of Christ cast in affliction and sorrow? It is the Lord; let him do what seemeth him good. Are we in prosperity and peace? It is from above. Be humbled when you compare the gift with your own unworthiness. Forget not Him that gave the good, and always be ready to resign it at his command.And was drawn from the north,.... Turning northward, and looking that way from the west to the east:

and went forth to Enshemesh; or the fountain of the sun, see Joshua 15:7,

and went forth toward Geliloth; called Gilgal, Joshua 15:7,

which is over against the going up to Adummim; a place between Jerusalem and Jericho, see Joshua 15:7,

and descended to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben; see Joshua 15:6.
