Wesley's Notes for Joshua 7:26


7:26 A great heap of stones - As a monument of the sin and judgment here mentioned, that others might be warned by the example; and as a brand of infamy, as #Josh 8:29 2Sam 18:17|. The valley of Achor - Or, the valley of trouble, from the double trouble expressed, #Jos 7:25|.
