Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 21:16

_ _ from thence they went to Beer — that is, a “well.” The name was probably given to it afterwards [see Judges 9:21], as it is not mentioned (Numbers 33:1-56).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 21:10-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 21:16

Beer — This place and Mattanah, Nahaliel, and Bamoth named here, Numbers 21:19, are not mentioned among those places where they pitched or encamped, Num. 33:1-49. Probably they did not pitch or encamp in these places, but only pass by or through them. I will give them water — In a miraculous manner. Before they prayed, God granted, and prevented them with the blessings of goodness. And as the brasen serpent was the figure of Christ, so is this well a figure of the spirit, who is poured forth for our comfort, and from him flow rivers of living waters.
