What is the meaning of "Im Temei'ah Eretz Achuzaschem"?


Rashi: Hashem did not choose to rest His Shechinah there.


Radak: If you consider it Tamei because the Mishkan is not there.


Ramban (Bamidbar 21:21): It is not proper for the Beis ha'Mikdash or for the Shechinah to dwell there.


Malbim: If you will say that you built the Mizbe'ach west of the Yarden to offer to Hashem, because is not proper to offer in your land, also this is a rebellion (a) against Hashem, who commanded not to offer on a Bamah, only in the Mishkan, and (b) against Yisrael, for it divides their unity. It is proper that all of Yisrael serve Hashem in one house!
