Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 17:6

_ _ carried Israel away — that is, the remaining tribes (see on 2 Kings 15:29).

_ _ and placed them, etc. — This passage Gesenius renders thus, omitting the particle by, which is printed in italics to show it is not in the original: “and placed them in Halah, and on the Chabor, a river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes.”

_ _ Halah — the same as Calah (Genesis 10:11, Genesis 10:12), in the region of the Laycus or Zab river, about a day’s journey from the ruins of Nineveh.

_ _ Chabor — is a river, and it is remarkable that there is a river rising in the central highlands of Assyria which retains this name Khabour unchanged to the present day.

_ _ Gozan — (“pasture”) or Zozan, are the highlands of Assyria, which afford pasturage. The region in which the Chabor and the Zab rise, and through which they flow, is peculiarly of this character. The Nestorians repair to it with their numerous flocks, spending the summer on the banks or in the highlands of the Chabor or the Zab. Considering the high authority we possess for regarding Gozan and Zozan as one name, there can be no doubt that this is the Gozan referred to in this passage.

_ _ cities of the Medes — “villages,” according to the Syriac and Vulgate versions, or “mountains,” according to the Septuagint. The Medish inhabitants of Gozan, having revolted, had been destroyed by the kings of Assyria, and nothing was more natural than that they should wish to place in it an industrious people, like the captive Israelites, while it was well suited to their pastoral life [Grant, Nestorians].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 17:6

Carried Israel away, &c. — There, we have reason to think, after some time, they were so mingled with the nations, that they were lost, and the name of Israel was no more in remembrance. They that forgot God, were themselves forgotten, and they that studied to be like the nations, were buried among them. Thus ended Israel as a nation. When we read their entry into Canaan, under Hoshea the son of Nun, who would have thought, that such would be their exit, under Hoshea, the son of Elah? Yet we find St. James writing to the twelve tribes scattered abroad. So that tho' we never read of the return of those that were carried captive, nor have any ground to believe, that they still remain a distinct body in some remote corner of the world, yet a remnant of them did escape, and will remain 'till all Israel shall be saved.
