Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 10:5

_ _ the isles of the Gentiles — a phrase by which the Hebrews described all countries which were accessible by sea (Isaiah 11:11; Isaiah 20:6; Jeremiah 25:22). Such in relation to them were the countries of Europe, the peninsula of Lesser Asia, and the region lying on the east of the Euxine. Accordingly, it was in these quarters the early descendants of Japheth had their settlements.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 10:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 10:5

The posterity of Japheth were allotted to the isles of the Gentiles, which were solemnly, by lot, after a survey, divided among them, and probably this island of ours among the rest. All places beyond the sea, from Judea, are called isles, Jeremiah 25:22, and this directs us to understand that promise, Isaiah 42:4, the isles shall wait for his law, of the conversion of the Gentiles to the faith of Christ.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 10:5

By these were the (c) isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

(c) So do the Jews call all countries which are separated from them by sea, as Greece, Italy etc, which were given to the children of Japheth, of whom came the Gentiles.
