Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 34:7-9

_ _ north border — The principal difficulty in understanding the description here arises from what our translators have called mount Hor. The Hebrew words, however, Hor-ha-Hor, properly signify “the mountain of the mountain,” or “the high double mountain,” which, from the situation, can mean nothing else than the mountain Amana (Song of Songs 4:8), a member of the great Lebanon range (Joshua 13:5).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 34:1-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 34:7

Hor — Not that Hor where Aaron died, which was southward, and bordering upon Edom, but another mountain, and, as it is conceived, the mountain of Libanus, which is elsewhere mentioned as the northern border of the land, and which, in regard of divers parts, or by divers people, is called by divers names, and here Hor, which signifies a mountain, by way of eminency.

Numbers 34:7

And this shall be your north border: from the great sea ye shall point out for you mount (d) Hor:

(d) Which is a mountain near Tyre and Sidon, and not that Hor in the wilderness where Aaron died.
