Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 32:35-38.


Numbers 32:38

_ _ (their names being changed) — either because it was the general custom of conquerors to do so; or, rather, because from the prohibition to mention the names of other gods (Exodus 23:13), as Nebo and Baal were, it was expedient on the first settlement of the Israelites to obliterate all remembrance of those idols. (See Joshua 13:17-20).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 32:28-42.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 32:38

Their names changed — Either because conquerers of places used to do so: or because the names of other Gods (which Nebo and Baal — meon unquestionably were) were not to be mentioned, Exodus 23:13.
