Bible Commentary for Joshua 22:26

Wesley's Notes for Joshua 22:26


22:24 With the Lord - You have no relation to him, nor interest in him, or his worship.

22:25 A border - To shut you out of the land of promise, and consequently from the covenant made between God and our fathers. No part - Nothing to do with him; no right to serve him or expect favour from him. Cease from fearing the Lord - For they that are cut off from public ordinances, usually by degrees lose all religion. It is true, the form and profession of godliness, may be kept without the life and power of it. But the life and power will not long be kept, without the form and profession of it.

22:27 Before him - That we and ours may have and hold our privilege of serving and worshiping God, not upon this altar, but in the place of God's presence, in your tabernacle, and upon your altar.

22:28 The pattern - An exact representation and resemblance. A witness - That we both serve one God, and approve and make use of one and the same altar.
