It was not heathen;  formארץ  וותים טהורה רמקררתיה רמדררתיה ושביליה טהררין  The land of Samaria is reckoned clean, and the gathering together of its waters clean, and its dwellings clean, and its paths clean:  which the Jewish curiosity would by no means pronounce of a heathen land. But as to many other things, they made no difference between them and the Gentiles. The Jewish doctors do, indeed, particularly apply that division of the three countries in the place alleged, to the tradition and canon concerning ביעור ; but yet they do every where retain the same, wheresoever they treat of the divi-sion of the land of Israel. What ביעור means, you may learn from the authors of the gloss upon the place. Briefly it was this: — In the seventh year they might eat of the fruits laid up in their storehouses, so long as some fruit of that kind hung upon the tree in that country: but when they could no more find them upon the trees, they were to cast out those which they had gathered, and laid up at home, and not to eat of them, as they did before.
