    Definitions for Joshua 17:9

    Sea - Large basin.

    Clarke's Commentary on Joshua 17:9

    Unto the river Kanah - Literally, the river or valley of the reeds, translated by the Vulgate, vallis arundintei. The tribe of Manasseh appears to have been bounded on the north by this torrent or valley, and on the south by the Mediterranean Sea.

    Barnes' Notes on Joshua 17:9

    These cities ... - The text is possibly corrupt. The intention seems to be to state that the cities lying south of the river, though within the limits of Manasseh, were in fact made over to Ephraim, and were among the "separate cities" Joshua 16:9. On the contrary, the north bank of the river, both land and towns, belonged to Manasseh exclusively.

    Wesley's Notes on Joshua 17:9

    17:9 Three cities - Tappuah, and the cities upon the coast descending to the river, and c. last mentioned. Among the cities of Manasseh - That is, are intermixed with their cities, which was not strange nor unfit, these two being linked together by a nearer alliance than the rest.
