Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 24:5-7

_ _ How goodly are thy tents, ... O Israel! — a fine burst of admiration, expressed in highly poetical strains. All travellers describe the beauty which the circular area of Bedouin tents impart to the desert. How impressive, then, must have been the view, as seen from the heights of Abarim, of the immense camp of Israel extended over the subjacent plains.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
