* enlarge. or, persuade. Japheth.
Japheth denotes enlargement, and how wonderfully have his
boundaries been enlarged; for not only Europe, but Asia Minor,
part of Armenia, Iberia, the whole of the vast regions of Asia
north of Taurus, and probably America, fell to the share of
* he shall dwell.
These words may mean either that God or that Japheth shall
dwell in the tents of Shem. In either sense the prophecy has
been literally fulfilled.
