Bible Commentary for Joshua 6:15

Wesley's Notes for Joshua 6:15


6:16 Shout - To testify your faith in God's promise, and thankfulness for this glorious mercy; to encourage yourselves and brethren, and to strike a terror into your enemies. Given you the city - It is given to them, to be devoted to God, as the first, and perhaps the worst of all the cities of Canaan.

6:17 Accursed - That is, devoted to utter destruction. This he speaks by direction from God, as is evident from #1Kings 16:34|. To the Lord - Partly because the first - fruits were appropriated to God; partly lest the soldiers being glutted with the spoil of the rich city, should grow sluggish in their work; and partly to strike the greater terror into the rest of their enemies.
