John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

Let me pass through thy land,.... Through some part of it, which would have been a shorter way to the river Jordan, over which Israel was to pass into the land of Canaan; the terms proposed, or things to be observed in their passage, which they would bind themselves strictly to, are the same that were made to the king of Edom. See Gill on Numbers 20:17.

Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Let me pass through thy land: we will not turn into the fields, or into the vineyards; we will not drink of the waters of the well: but we will go along by the king's high way, until we be past thy borders.

Let me pass — They spoke what they seriously intended and would have done, if he had given them quiet passage.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

They spoke what they seriously intended and would have done, if he had given them quiet passage; but withal they knew that Sihon would not do it, and that he would withstand them, and that they should subdue him and take his land, as God had told them before they sent this message, as appears from Deuteronomy 2:21,26,27; and accordingly God hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, for this end, that he might deliver him into Israel’s hand there, Numbers 21:31. And no wonder, for he and his people were Amorites, and therefore devoted to destruction, as all that people were.
