Wesley's Notes for Joshua 1:4


1:4 This Lebanon - Emphatically, as being the most eminent mountain in Syria, and the northern border of the land: or this which is within thy view. Hittites - Of the Canaanites, who elsewhere are all called Amorites; (#Gen 15:16|) and here Hittites, the Hittites being the most considerable and formidable of all. The greater - The midland sea, great in itself, and especially compared with those lesser collections of waters, which the Jews called seas. But the Israelites never possessed all this land. I answer: That was from their own sloth and cowardice, and disobedience to God, and breach of those conditions upon which this promise was suspended: Though their possessions extended not to Euphrates, yet their dominion did, and all those lands were tributary to them in David's and Solomon's time.


Discussion for Joshua 1

    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.
