Bible Commentary for Joshua 18:13

Wesley's Notes for Joshua 18:13


18:11 And the children of Joseph - Wherein we see the wisdom of Divine Providence, this being the only place in which that prophecy, #Deut 33:12|, could have been accomplished. Providence cast Benjamin next to Joseph on the one hand, because Benjamin was own and only brother to Joseph, and next to Judah on the other hand, that this tribe might hereafter unite with Judah, in an adherence to the throne of David, and the temple at Jerusalem.

18:14 Kirjath - jearim - The Israelites changed the name, to blot out the remembrance of Baal.
