Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Nehemiah 9:6-38.


Nehemiah 9:22

_ _ Moreover thou gavest them kingdoms and nations — that is, put them in possession of a rich country, of an extensive territory, which had been once occupied by a variety of princes and people.

_ _ and didst divide them into corners — that is, into tribes. The propriety of the expression arose from the various districts touching at points or angles on each other.

_ _ the land of Sihon, and the land of the king of Heshbon — Heshbon being the capital city, the passage should run thus: “the land of Sihon or the land of the king of Heshbon.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Nehemiah 9:4-38.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Nehemiah 9:22

Divide — The Heathen nations, whom God in a great measure destroyed, and the remainders of them he dispersed into corners; that whereas before the Israelites came, they had large habitations, now they were cooped up, some in one town, and some in another, in the several corners of their land, while the Israelites dwelt in a large place, and had the possession of their whole land, some few and small parcels excepted.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Nehemiah 9:22

Moreover thou gavest them kingdoms and nations, and didst (d) divide them into corners: so they possessed the land of Sihon, and the land of the king of Heshbon, and the land of Og king of Bashan.

(d) Meaning, the heathen whom he drove out.
