(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Yearly; on the three solemn feasts, in which they used some honest and holy recreations; among which dancing was one, Exo_15:20 1Sa_18:6 2Sa_6:14; and probably it was the feast of tabernacles, which they did celebrate with more than ordinary joy, Deu_16:13-15.

Which is on the north side of Beth-el, Heb. which is on the north of Beth-el. Which doth not relate to

Shiloh, which was so known a place, that it was frivolous to describe it by such circumstances, even by places much less known than itself; but to the

feast, which as to that part or exercise of the feast here especially concerned and mentioned, to wit, the dancing of the virgins, was not celebrated in Shiloh, but in a neighboring place more convenient for that purpose.
