Bible Commentary for Joshua 10:17

Wesley's Notes for Joshua 10:17


10:15 Joshua returned - Not upon the same day, but after he had dispatched the matter which here follows; as appears by ver.#43|, where the very same words are repeated. And they are put here to close the general discourse of the fight which begun ver.#10|, and ends here; which being done he particularly describes some remarkable passages, and closeth them with the same words.

10:16 A cave - A place of the greatest secrecy; but there is no escaping the eye or hand of God. At Makkedah - Heb. in Makkedah, not in the city, for that was not yet taken; but in the territory of it.

10:19 Enter their cities - Whereby they will recover their strength, and renew the war. God hath delivered them - Your work will be easy, God hath already done the work to your hands.
