Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 13:3

_ _ went on his journeys — His progress would be by slow marches and frequent encampments as Abram had to regulate his movements by the prospect of water and pasturage.

_ _ unto the place ... between Beth-el and Hai — “a conspicuous hill — its topmost summit resting on the rocky slopes below, and distinguished by its olive groves — offering a natural base for the altar and a fitting shade for the tent of the patriarch” [Stanely].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 13:1-4.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 13:3

He went on to Bethel — Thither he went, not only because he was willing to go among his old acquaintance; but because there he had formerly had his altar. and though the altar was gone, probably he himself having taking it down when he left the place, lest it should be polluted by the idolatrous Canaanites; yet he came to the place of the altar, either to revive the remembrance of the sweet communion he had had with God at that place, or, perhaps, to pay the vows he had there made to God when he undertook his journey into Egypt.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 13:3

And he went on his journeys from the south even to (b) Bethel, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Hai;

(b) He calls the place by the name which was later given to it, (Genesis 23:19).
