Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 21:2-3

_ _ Israel vowed a vow unto the Lord — Made to feel their own weakness, they implored the aid of Heaven, and, in anticipation of it, devoted the cities of this king to future destruction. The nature and consequence of such anathemas are described (Leviticus 27:1-34; Deuteronomy 13:1-18). This vow of extermination against Arad [Numbers 21:2] gave name to the place Hormah (slaughter and destruction) though it was not accomplished till after the passage of the Jordan. Others think Hormah the name of a town mentioned (Joshua 12:14).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 21:1-3.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 21:2

I will utterly destroy them — I will reserve no person or thing for my own use, but devote them all to total destruction.
