15“西布伦地、拿弗他利地,沿海之路,约旦河外,外族人的加利利啊!
15The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;
15 Verse 15. Galilee of the Gentiles] Or of the nations. So

called, because it was inhabited by Egyptians, Arabians, and

Phoenicians, according to the testimony of Strabo and others. The

Hebrew goyim, and the Greek εθνων, signify nations; and,

in the Old and New Testaments, mean those people who were not

descendants of any of the twelve tribes. The word Gentiles, from

gens, a nation, signifies the same. It is worthy of remark, that

it was a regular tradition among the ancient Jews, that the

Messiah should begin his ministry in Galilee. See the proofs in

Schoetgen.
