    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Samuel 24:7

    The strong hold of Tyre - This must have been the old city of Tyre, which was built on the main land: the new city was built on a rock in the sea.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Samuel 24:7

    The strong hold of Tyre - "The fenced city," as it is generally rendered throughout the historical books.

    The cities of the Hivites - Gibeon, Chephirah, Beeroth, and Kirjath-jearim, and perhaps Shechem, besides those at the foot of Hermon and Lebanon, of which we do not know the names. This continuance of distinct communities of Hivites so late as the end of David's reign is remarkable.
