Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 21:29

_ _ people of Chemosh — the name of the Moabite idol (1 Kings 11:7-33; 2 Kings 23:13; Jeremiah 48:46).

_ _ he — that is, their god, hath surrendered his worshippers to the victorious arms of Sihon.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 21:21-35.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 21:29

People of Chemosh — The worshippers of Chemosh: so the God of the Moabites was called. He, that is, their God, hath delivered up his own people to his and their enemies; nor could he secure even those that had escaped the sword, but suffered them to be carried into captivity. The words of this and the following verse seem to be not a part of that triumphant song made, by some Amoritish poet, which seems to be concluded, Numbers 21:28, but of the Israelites making their observation upon it. And here they scoff at the impotency not only of the Moabites, but of their God also, who could not save his people from the sword of Sihon and the Amorites.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Numbers 21:29

Woe to thee, Moab! thou art undone, O people of (m) Chemosh: he hath given his sons that escaped, and his daughters, into captivity unto Sihon king of the Amorites.

(m) Chemosh was the idol of the Moabites, (1 Kings 11:33) who was not able to defend his worshippers, who took the idol for their father.
