Treasury of Scripture

But the Amorites would dwell in mount Heres in Aijalon, and in Shaalbim: yet the hand of the house of Joseph prevailed, so that they became tributaries.

Aijalon

Judges 12:12
And Elon the Zebulonite died, and was buried in Aijalon in the country of Zebulun.

Joshua 10:12
Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.

Shaalbim

Joshua 19:42
And Shaalabbin, and Ajalon, and Jethlah,

1 Kings 4:9
The son of Dekar, in Makaz, and in Shaalbim, and Bethshemesh, and Elonbethhanan:

prevailed.









(35) Mount Heres.--(See Judges 1:33.) Cheres is used for the sun in Job 9:7. The Vatican Codex of the LXX. has the strange rendering, "in the mountains of potsherds" (comp. the Monte Testacclo at Rome), and Jerome follows them in reading ????? for ?????. The Alexandrian Codex renders it, "the mountain of the myrtle-grove," reading Haras.

Aijalon.--The name means "gazelles," and is still preserved in the name Yalo, a village on the south side of the beautiful valley, Merj Ibn Omeir. It is mentioned in the story of the battle of Beth-horon (Joshua 10:12), and as a scene of the defeat of the Philistines by Saul (1Samuel 14:31). It was a Levitical town (Joshua 21:24).

Shaalbim.--The name means "jackals" (comp. Judges 15:4; and Hazar-shual, Joshua 15:28; and Shalim, 1Samuel 9:4). The LXX. render this and Aijalon by "where the bears and foxes are." Not far off is Zeboim, i.e. "Hyaenas."

Yet the hand of the house of Joseph prevailed.--This may imply that when Dan was unable to dislodge the Amorites they were effectually aided by the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh. Hence the LXX. render it, "The hand of the house of Joseph was heavy on the Amorites." (Comp. 1Samuel 5:6; Psalm 32:6.)

Tributaries.--Not to Dan, but to their conquerors, the Ephraimites; so that the assistance rendered by the house of Joseph to their weak brother was, at the best, somewhat selfish, although it enabled Dan to hold the sea-coast (Judges 1:17).
