Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Deuteronomy 8:9

_ _ a land whose stones are iron — The abundance of this metal in Palestine, especially among the mountains of Lebanon, those of Kesraoun, and elsewhere, is attested not only by Josephus, but by Volney, Buckingham, and other travelers.

_ _ brass — not the alloy brass, but the ore of copper. Although the mines may now be exhausted or neglected, they yielded plenty of those metals anciently (1 Chronicles 22:3; 1 Chronicles 29:2-7; Isaiah 60:17).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 8:1-9.
