Bible Commentary for Joshua 7:16

Wesley's Notes for Joshua 7:16


7:14 The Lord taketh - Which shall be declared guilty by the lot, which is disposed by the Lord, #Prov 16:33|, and which was to be cast in the Lord's presence before the ark. Of such use of lots, see #1Sam 14:41|,42 Jon 1:7 Acts 1:26.

7:15 Shall be burnt with fire - As persons and things accursed were to be. All that he hath - His children and goods, as is noted, ver.#24|, according to the law, #Deut 13:16|. Wrought folly - So sin is often called in scripture, in opposition to the idle opinion of sinners, who commonly esteem it to be their wisdom. In Israel - That is, among the church and people of God who had such excellent laws to direct them, and such an all - sufficient and gracious God to provide for them, without any such unworthy practices. It was sacrilege, it was invading God's rights, and converting to a private use that which was devoted to his glory, which was to be thus severely punished, for a warning to all people in all ages, to take heed how they rob God.

7:17 The family - Either, the tribe or people, as the word family sometimes signifies, or, the families, as ver. #14|, the singular number for the plural, the chief of each of their five families, #Numb 26:20|,21. Man by man - Not every individual person, as is evident from #Jos 7:18|, but every head of the several houses, or lesser families of that greater family of the Zarhites, of which see #1Chron 2:6|.
