13后又 离开 拿撒勒 ,往迦百农 去 ,就住 在那里 。那 地方靠海 ,在西布伦 和 拿弗他利 的边界 上 。
13 And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:
13 Verse 13. And leaving Nazareth] Or, entirely leaving Nazareth,

καικαταλιπωντηνναζαρετ, from κατα, intensive, and δειπω,

I leave. It seems that, from this time, our blessed Lord made

Capernaum his ordinary place of residence; and utterly forsook

Nazareth, because they had wholly rejected his word, and even

attempted to take away his life. See Lu 4:29.



Galilee was bounded by mount Lebanon on the north, by the river

Jordan and the sea of Galilee on the east, by Chison on the south,

and by the Mediterranean on the west.



Nazareth, a little city in the tribe of Zebulon, in lower

Galilee, with Tabor on the east, and Ptolemais on the west. It is

supposed that this city was the usual residence of our Lord for

the first thirty years of his life. It was here he became

incarnate, lived in subjection to Joseph and Mary, and from which

he took the name of a Nazorean.



Capernaum, a city famous in the New Testament, but never

mentioned in the Old. Probably it was one of those cities which

the Jews built after their return from Babylon. It stood on the

sea-coast of Galilee, on the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim, as

mentioned in the text. This was called his own city, Mt 9:1,

&c., and here, as a citizen, he paid the half shekel, Mt 17:24.

Among the Jews, if a man became a resident in any city for twelve

months, he thereby became a citizen, and paid his proportion of

dues and taxes. See Lightfoot. Capernaum is well known to have

been the principal scene of our Lord's miracles during the three

years of his public ministry.



Zabulon, the country of this tribe, in which Nazareth and

Capernaum were situated, bordered on the lake of Gennesareth,

stretching to the frontiers of Sidon, Ge 49:13. Nephthalim was

contiguous to it, and both were on the east side of Jordan,

Jos 19:34.
