Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Joshua 16:1

_ _ Joshua 16:1-4. The general borders of the sons of Joseph.

_ _ the lot of the children of Joseph fellHebrew, “went forth,” referring either to the lot as drawn out of the urn, or to the tract of land thereby assigned. The first four verses describe the territory allotted to the family of Joseph in the rich domains of central Palestine. It was drawn in one lot, that the brethren might be contiguously situated; but it was afterwards divided. The southern boundary only is described here; that on the north being irregular and less defined (Joshua 17:10, Joshua 17:11), is not mentioned.

_ _ water of Jericho — (2 Kings 2:19), at the joint of its junction with the Jordan.

_ _ mount Beth-el — the ridge south of Beth-el. Having described the position of Joseph’s family generally the historian proceeds to define the territory; first, that of Ephraim.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Joshua 16:1-4

_ _ Though Joseph was one of the younger sons of Jacob, yet he was his eldest by his most just and best beloved wife Rachel, was himself his best beloved son, and had been the greatest ornament and support of his family, kept it from perishing in a time of famine, and had been the shepherd and stone of Israel, and therefore his posterity were very much favoured by the lot. Their portion lay in the very heart of the land of Canaan. It extended from Jordan in the east (Joshua 16:1) to the sea, the Mediterranean Sea, in the west, so that it took up the whole breadth of Canaan from side to side; and no question the fruitfulness of the soil answered the blessings both of Jacob and Moses, Genesis 49:25, Genesis 49:26, and Deuteronomy 33:13, etc. The portions allotted to Ephraim and Manasseh are not so particularly described as those of the other tribes; we have only the limits and boundaries of them, not the particular cities in them, as before we had the cities of Judah and afterwards those of the other tribes. For this no reason can be assigned, unless we may suppose that Joshua being himself of the children of Joseph they referred it to him alone to distribute among them the several cities that lay within their lot, and therefore did not bring in the names of their cities to the great council of their princes who sat upon this affair, by which means it came to pass that they were not inserted with the rest in the books.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joshua 16:1

Children of Joseph — That is, of Ephraim, and the half tribe of Manasseh, which are here put together in one; because in these first verses he speaks of them in common; and then of their several portions.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
