2 Chronicles 15:5 Commentary - English Annotations on the Holy Bible by Matthew Poole
In those times; when Israel lived in the gross neglect and contempt of God, and his law and worship.
No peace to him that went out, nor to him that came in; men could not go abroad about their private occasions without great danger; as it was in the days of Shamgar, Jdg 5:6, which is a good comment upon this text.
Of the countries, Heb. of these countries, i.e. the divers parts of the land of Israel, both within and without Jordan.

English Annotations on the Holy Bible by Matthew Poole
Matthew Poole (1624–1679) wrote English Annotations on the Holy Bible, completing the chapters as far as Isaiah 58 before his death in 1679. The rest of the Annotations were completed by friends and colleagues among his Nonconformist brethren. The first printing of the completed edition was in 1685, 2 volumes folio, followed by editions in 1688, 1696 (with valuable chapter outlines added by the editors, Samuel Clark and Edward Veale), and the 4th and definitive edition in 1700, the basis of all others.
