Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Deuteronomy 3:9

_ _ Hermon — now Jebel-Es-Sheick — the majestic hill on which the long and elevated range of Anti-Lebanon terminates. Its summit and the ridges on its sides are almost constantly covered with snow. It is not so much one high mountain as a whole cluster of mountain peaks, the highest in Palestine. According to the survey taken by the English Government Engineers in 1840, they were about 9376 feet above the sea. Being a mountain chain, it is no wonder that it should have received different names at different points from the different tribes which lay along the base — all of them designating extraordinary height: Hermon, the lofty peak; “Sirion,” or in an abbreviated form “Sion” (Deuteronomy 4:48), the upraised, glittering; “Shenir,” the glittering breastplate of ice.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 3:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 3:9

Sirion — Elsewhere called Mount Gilead, and Lebanon, and here Shenir, and Sirion, which several names are given to this one mountain partly by several people, and partly in regard of several tops and parts of it.
