    Clarke's Commentary on Joshua 12:1

    From the river Arnon unto Mount Hermon - Arnon was the boundary of all the southern coast of the land occupied by the Israelites beyond Jordan; and the mountains of Hermon were the boundaries on the north. Arnon takes its rise in the mountains of Gilead, and having run a long way from north to south falls into the Dead Sea, near the same place into which Jordan discharges itself.

    And all the plain on the east - All the land from the plains of Moab to Mount Hermon.

    Barnes' Notes on Joshua 12:1

    All the plain on the east - i. e. the Arabah or depressed tract along the east bank of Jordan, the modern El-Ghor (see Numbers 22:1).

    Wesley's Notes on Joshua 12:1

    12:1 Plain on the east - On the east of Jordan, called the plain, Deut 1:1.
