Joshua 11:9 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

"Namely, with the Canaanites on the east and west, the Amorites" and other tribes dwelling upon the mountains (vid., Joshua 3:10), and "the Hivites under the Hermon in the land of Mizpah," i.e., the country below Hasbeya, between Nahr Hasbany on the east, and Merj. Ayn on the west, with the village of Mutulleh or Mtelleh, at present inhabited by Druses, which stands upon a hill more than 200 feet high, and from which there is a splendid prospect over the Huleh basin. It is from this that it has derived its name, which signifies prospect, specula, answering to the Hebrew Mizpah (see Robinson, Bibl. Res. p. 372).
