Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 33:17

_ _ Jacob journeyed to Succoth — that is, “booths,” that being the first station at which Jacob halted on his arrival in Canaan. His posterity, when dwelling in houses of stone, built a city there and called it Succoth, to commemorate the fact that their ancestor, “a Syrian ready to perish” [Deuteronomy 26:5], was glad to dwell in booths.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
