Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 1:16

_ _ the children of the Kenite, Moses’ father-in-law, went up out of the city of palm trees with the children of Judah — called “the Kenite,” as probably descended from the people of that name (Numbers 24:21, Numbers 24:22). If he might not himself, his posterity did accept the invitation of Moses (Numbers 10:32) to accompany the Israelites to Canaan. Their first encampment was in the “city of palm trees” — not Jericho, of course, which was utterly destroyed, but the surrounding district, perhaps En-gedi, in early times called Hazezon-tamar (Genesis 14:7), from the palm-grove which sheltered it. Thence they removed for some unknown cause, and associating themselves with Judah, joined in an expedition against Arad, in the southern part of Canaan (Numbers 21:1). On the conquest of that district, some of this pastoral people pitched their tents there, while others migrated to the north (Judges 4:17).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 1:9-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 1:16

Moses's father — in — law — That is, of Jethro, so called from the people whom he descended, Numbers 24:21-22. And, whatsoever he did, it is evident, that his posterity came into Canaan with the Israelites, and were there seated with them, see Judges 4:11, Judges 4:17, Judges 5:24; 1 Samuel 15:6; 1Ch. 2:1-55. City of palm — trees — That is, from Jericho, so called, Deuteronomy 34:3, not the city which was destroyed, but the territory belonging to it, where it seems they were seated, in a most pleasant, and fruitful, and safe place, according to the promise made by Moses to their father, Numbers 10:29-32, and whence they might remove, either to avoid the neighboring Canaanites; or out of love to the children of Judah. South of Arad — In the southern part of the land of Canaan, where Arad was, Numbers 21:1. They went — That is some of them, for others of them dwelt in a contrary quarter, in the most northern part of the land. Among the people — Heb. that people, namely, those children of Judah that lived there.
