Aphek.This is probably the Aphek spoken of in 1 Ki 20:26. 2 Ki 13:18, as the capital of the kings of Syria; and the same as is mentioned by Sozomen, Eusebius, and Theophanes, as situated near the river Adonis (now Nahr Ibrahim,) between Heliopolis and Byblos, and celebrated for the infamous temple of Venus the Aphacite. The village Afka, situated in the bottom of a valley, and hour and three quarters from Akoura, and three hours' distance from Lake Liemoun, is supposed to occupy its site. Burckhardt, however, could not hear of any remains of antiquity in it neighbourhood. 19:30; 1Sa 4:1the Amorites.Jud 1:34-36 Giblites.Probably the inhabitants of the country, around Gebal, (Eze 27:9,) or Byblos, as the LXX. render, a city of Phoenicia, situated on the Mediterranean, between Sidon and Tripoli, on the north of the river Adonis. It is now called Gibyle, of Djebail, situated about a day's journey south of Tripoli. Its walls are about a mile in circumference, with square towers about every forty yards' distance. Anciently it must have been a place of no mean extent and of considerable beauty, from the ruins still visible. 1Ki 5:18; *marg:Ps 83:7; Eze 27:9Lebanon.De 1:7; 3:25Baal-gad.12:7under mount.11:17unto the.Nu 34:8; Isa 10:9; Am 6:2 Misrephoth-maim.11:8them.23:13; Ge 15:18-21; Ex 23:30,31; Jud 2:21-23only divide.14:1,2 Nu 26:53-56; 33:54; 32:2-14; Eze 47:13-23; 48:23-29 Moses gave.4:12; 22:4; Nu 32:33-42; De 3:12-17 Aroer.16; 12:2; De 3:12,16all the plain.Nu 21:30; Isa 15:2; Jer 48:18,22 Nu 21:24-26 12:2-5; De 4:47,48; 1Ch 2:23 Og.12:4; De 3:10,11these did.14:3,4; Nu 21:23-35 expelled.11; 23:12,13; Nu 33:55; Jud 2:1-3; 2Sa 3:3; 13:37,38 See the Note on verse 33.14:3,4; Nu 18:20-24; De 10:9; 12:12,19; 18:2 15 9; 12:2; Nu 21:28-30; 32:33-38; De 3:12; Isa 15:1,2,4; 16:7-9Jer 48:21-24 Dibon.Eusebius says the city was situated in the plain of Arnon.

Nu 18:20. If they had been appointed to a lot entire by themselves, Moses would have served them first, not because it was his own tribe, but because it was God's, but they must be provided for in another manner; their habitation must be scattered in all the tribes, and their maintenance brought out of all the tribes, and God himself was the portion both of their inheritance and of their cup. 18:7; De 10:9; 18:1,2
