This in the mount from whence the Lord commanded Joshua to bless the people; while mount Ebal was the mount appointed for the proclamation of the curses. (See Deuteronomy 27:1-26, throughout; Joshua 8:30-35) Both those mountains were near Shechem in Ephraim, a province of Samaria. It should seem, that Gerizim was very near to Shechem; for Jotham, the son of Gideon, addressed the people of that city from it. (See Judges 9:7) The Samaritans had a high veneration for this mountain; witness the words of the adulteress at Jacob's well to Christ. "Our fathers (said she) worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship." (John 4:20)
