Bethel is not mentioned in the Greek version, and some, with
Houbigant and Pilkington, think it was not originally in the
Hebrew; because, had the men of Bethel pursued, as well as
those of Ai, it would have been said that they left the
cities, and not the city, open. The principal strength of
Bethel might have been previously taken into Ai, as the
strongest place to make a stand in; Bethel being but about
three miles westward from Ai.
