Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 14:25

_ _ (Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites dwelt in the valley) — that is, on the other side of the Idumean mountain, at whose base they were then encamped. Those nomad tribes had at that time occupied it with a determination to oppose the further progress of the Hebrew people. Hence God gave the command that they seek a safe and timely retreat into the desert, to escape the pursuit of those resolute enemies, to whom, with their wives and children, they would fall a helpless prey because they had forfeited the presence and protection of God. This verse forms an important part of the narrative and should be freed from the parenthetical form which our English translators have given it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 14:20-35.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 14:25

In the valley — Beyond the mountain, at the foot whereof they now were, Numbers 14:40. And this clause is added, either As an aggravation of Israel's misery and punishment, that being now ready to enter and take possession of the land, they are forced to go back into the wilderness or As an argument to oblige them more willingly to obey the following command of returning into the wilderness, because their enemies were very near them, and severed from them only by that Idumean mountain, and, if they did not speedily depart, their enemies would fall upon them, and so the evil which before they causelessly feared would come upon them; they, their wives and their children, would become a prey to the Amalekites and Canaanites, because God would not assist nor defend them. By the way of the Red — sea — That leadeth to the Red — sea, and to Egypt, the place whither you desire to return.
