    Clarke's Commentary on Joshua 19:15

    Shimron - See on Joshua 12:20 (note).

    Beth-lehem - The house of bread; a different place from that in which our Lord was born.

    Barnes' Notes on Joshua 19:15

    Twelve cities - Only five have been mentioned, and the names in the verses preceding are apparently not names of Zebulonite cities, but merely of points in or near the boundary line. It would therefore appear that seven names have disappeared from the text, and perhaps also the definition of the western frontier.

    Wesley's Notes on Joshua 19:15

    19:15 Beth - lehem - Not that where Christ was born, which was in Judah, but another. Twelve cities - There are more numbered here, but the rest either were not cities properly so called, or were not within this tribe, but only bordering upon it, and belonging to other tribes.
