Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 21:17-18

_ _ Then Israel sang — This beautiful little song was in accordance with the wants and feelings of travelling caravans in the East, where water is an occasion both of prayer and thanksgiving. From the princes using their official rods only, and not spades, it seems probable that this well was concealed by the brushwood or the sand, as is the case with many wells in Idumea still. The discovery of it was seasonable, and owing to the special interposition of God.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 21:10-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Spring up — Heb. ascend, that is, let thy waters, which now lie hid below in the earth, ascend for our use. It is either a prediction that it should spring up, or a prayer that it might.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Numbers 21:17

Then Israel sang this song, Spring up, O well; (f) sing ye unto it:

(f) You that receive the convenience of it, give praise for it.
