Wesley's Notes for Joshua 22:12


22:12 The children of Israel - Not in their own persons, not by their elders, who used to transact all affairs of this kind in the name of all the people. Against them - As apostates from God, according to God's command in that case, #Deut 13:13|. &c.

    Verse 30-before attacking in war the Israelites living on the western side of the Jordan investigated the report they heard about the Israelites living on the eastern side. This kept them from acting hastily.

    whew! - this was a close call - a good lesson here is to not be too quick to mistrust people's intentions. Both sides harbored mistrust of one another - one thought the other was abandoning god - the other thought they were going to be cast off by their brethren

    The long and short of it all is to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all His ways, and to keep His commandments, and to cleave unto Him, and to serve Him with all our heart and with all our soul.

    Joshua 22 is the perfect witness to Isa. 1:18: Come now, let us REASON together (instead of war).
  • Brianna
    Joshua 22:5 - I appreciate this verse at it shows that we should do our utmost to obey God's law. Today, people have disregarded God's laws b disobeying them, and then saying it's okay to do so because God loves you. NOT SO! This scripture encourages us to give our best to Jehovah God. We must worship with ALL our heart and ALL our soul.
