Bible Commentary for Joshua 13:7

Wesley's Notes for Joshua 13:7


13:6 Will I drive out - Whatever becomes of us, however we may be laid aside as broken vessels, God will do his work in his own time. I will do it by my word; so the Chaldee here, as in many other places: by the eternal word, the captain of my host. But the promise of driving them out from before the children of Israel, supposes that the Israelites must use their own endeavours, must go up against them. If Israel, thro' sloth or cowardice let them alone, they are not likely to be driven out. We must go forth on our Christian warfare, and then God will go before us.

13:8 Which Moses gave them - By my command, and therefore do not thou disturb them in their possessions, but proceed to divide the other possessions to the rest.

13:9 Medeba unto Dibon - Two cities anciently belonging to the Moabites, and taken from them by the Amorites, #Numb 21:30|, and from them by the Israelites; and after the Israelites were gone into captivity, recovered by the first possessors, the Moabites.
