Bible Commentary for Joshua 6:17

Wesley's Notes for Joshua 6:17


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.
