Bible Commentary for Joshua 24:5

Wesley's Notes for Joshua 24:5


24:3 I took - I snatched him out of that idolatrous place, and took him into acquaintance and covenant with myself, which was the highest honour and happiness he was capable of. And led - That is I brought him after his father's death into Canaan, #Gen 12:1|, and I conducted and preserved him in all his travels through the several parts of Canaan. And multiplied - That is, gave him a numerous posterity, not only by Hagar and Keturah, but even by Sarah and by Isaac. Gave Isaac - By my special power and grace to be heir of my covenant, and all my promises, and the seed in or by which all the nations were to be blessed.

24:4 Mount Seir - That he might leave Canaan entire to his brother Jacob and his posterity, #Gen 36:7|,8. Into Egypt - Where they long lived in grievous bondage; which God having delivered us from, I shall now pass it over.

24:7 Your eyes - He speaketh this to the elders, ver.#1|, who were so, not only by power and dignity, but many of them by age; and there being now not sixty years past since those Egyptian plagues, it is very probable that a considerable number of those present, had seen those things in Egypt, and being not twenty years old, were exempted from that dreadful sentence passed upon all who were older, #Numb 14:29|.
