Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Joshua 1:11


1:11 Prepare you victuals - For although Manna was given them to supply their want of ordinary provisions in the wilderness; yet they were allowed, when they had opportunity, to purchase other provisions, and did so, #Deut 2:6|,28. And now having been some time in the land of the Amorites, and together with Manna used themselves to other food, which that country plentifully supplied them with; they are warned to furnish themselves therewith for their approaching march. Three days - These words, though placed here, seem not to have been delivered by Joshua 'till after the return of the spies; such transpositions being frequent in scripture. And hence it comes, that these three days mentioned here below, after the history of the spies, are again repeated #Josh 3:2|.

    My dad's name was Joshua. He was an amazing man. I read this book each time I think of him. It gives me some kind of Joy and peace. I am probably going to name my son Joshua too.

    I particularly love Chapter 1 verse 3. I have great confidence because of that promise. There is power is that word.

    I was a young woman of of 17 when I read the book of Joshua. As I read of this leader/trogon, he reminder me of my grandfather. I told him if I had a son I would name him- first name Joshua and second name after him because I could see Joshua in my grandfather, who's name was Slavone (French). Thus, Joshua Slavone. Family tells me he is so much like him. He was an officer and now a lawyer.
