Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

The progenitor of the Anakim was Arba "the father of Anak" Joshua 15:13, from whom the city of Hebron took its name of Kirjath-Arba. Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai were probably not individual warriors, but names of three tribes of the Anakim.

The Hyksos fortified and garrisoned Zoan as a defense of their Eastern frontier.

Take the first scene. A prophet, who knows God and His will, is standing on the mountain top, and as he looks down over the valley beneath him, with its acacia-trees and swift river, there spread the tents of Israel. He sees them, and knows that they are 'a people whom the Lord hath blessed.' Brought there
