Wesley's Notes for Joshua 1:16


1:16 And they answered - Not the two tribes and an half only, but the officers of all the people, in their name, concurring with the divine appointment, by which Joshua was set over them. Thus must we swear allegiance to our Lord Jesus, as the captain of our salvation.

    The "book of the law", vs. 8, was handwritten by Moses as instructed by God after God gave him the Ten Commandments. It contained extra counsel and instructions that the Israelites needed, based upon the Ten Commandments. This book was not the Ten Commandments and was kept in the side of the Ark of the Covenant.

    THIS was the law that was nailed to the cross, not the Ten Commandments.
