Joshua 14

Introduction

Overview

Joshua 14:1, The nine tribes and a half are to have their inheritance by lot; Joshua 14:6, Caleb by privilege obtains Hebron.

Verse 1

which Eleazar: Numbers 34:17-Joel :

Reciprocal: Genesis 10:19 - And the Exodus 6:14 - the heads Numbers 26:53 - General Numbers 34:13 - This is the land Numbers 36:2 - The Lord commanded Joshua 11:23 - according to their Joshua 13:6 - only divide Joshua 17:4 - Eleazar Joshua 18:8 - that I may here Joshua 19:51 - These are Joshua 21:1 - Eleazar Joshua 22:4 - get Joshua 24:33 - Eleazar Ezra 7:5 - Eleazar Acts 13:19 - he divided

Verse 2

lot: Though God had sufficiently pointed out by the predictions of Jacob and Moses what portions he designed for each tribe, yet we readily discern an admirable proof of His wisdom, in the orders he gave to decide them by lot. By this means the false interpretations which might have been given to the words of Jacob and Moses were prevented; and by striking at the root of whatever might occasion jealousies and disputes among the tribes, he evidently secured the honesty of those appointed to distribute the conquered lands of Canaan. Besides, the success of this method gave a fresh proof of the divinity of the Jewish religion, and the truth of its oracles. Each tribe finding itself placed by lot exactly in the spot where Jacob and Moses foretold, it was evident that Providence had equally directed both the predictions and that lot; and it would be the greatest folly and presumption not to acknowledge the inspiration of God in the words of Jacob and Moses; the direction of his hand in the lot, and his providence in the event. Numbers 26:55, Numbers 26:56, Numbers 33:54, Numbers 34:13, Psalms 16:5, Psalms 16:6, Proverbs 16:33, Proverbs 18:18, Matthew 25:34
