The chief city of the Midianites. (See Numbers 22:1-41) The name is derived from Niddin, judgment There were several persons called Midian in Scripture. And it is thought by some, that the Midianites were descendants of Midian, Abraham's son. (Genesis 25:2) Supposing this to be well founded, we may learn from hence, what evils spring out of illicit connections. Abraham's concubine, Keturah, brings forth, a son, whose descendants shall vex Abraham's lawful heirs to great afflictions. (See Numbers 25:16-18) And are not all the affections and lusts of our fallen nature, like illicit connections, continually harassing our spiritual joys!
