Gary Hampton Commentary on Selected Books
Joshua 21



Verses 1-42

Joshua 21:1-42 tells the cities that were given to the Levites so they would have a place to keep their cattle (compare Numbers 35:1-8). Verses 43-45 tell us God gave Israel all the land he had promised to the fathers (Genesis 12:7; Genesis 15:18). He gave them rest and no enemy was able to stand against them. In fact, their enemies had been given into their hands and they could easily have driven the rest out if they had have been so minded. So, God kept every part of his promise, though Israel did not take advantage of it through simple obedience (Exodus 33:14; Deuteronomy 12:9-10).
