Gary H. Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures
Joshua 21



Verses 1-45

Joshua 21:3 And the children of Israel gave unto the Levites out of their inheritance, at the commandment of the LORD, these cities and their suburbs.

Joshua 21:3Comments- The giving up of these towns and suburbs to the Levites was a form of tithing unto the Lord.

Joshua 21:43-45 — Summary of Conquest and Possession of the Promised Land - Joshua 21:43-45 summarizes the conquest and settlement of the Promised Land. This passage of Scripture mentions twice that God fulfilled His promises that he swore unto the fathers of this generation of Israelites, which promises go back to the time of Abraham. God is a God who works from generation to generation in order to fulfil His promises and accomplish His plan of redemption for mankind.

Joshua 21:45 There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.

Joshua 21:45Comments- The promise that Israel would possess the land was a "good" promise. Yet, it cost the lives of thousands of Canaanites, men, women and children, and their livestock. Our natural response is to ask how these deaths can be "good."
