Peter Pett's Commentary on the Bible

So Joshua sent the people away, every man to his inheritance.’

The covenant having been confirmed and sealed Joshua sent the people home. The last phrase is significant. Each man had an inheritance to go back to. All could look to YHWH with gratitude for the land that they owned. Their entry into Canaan had been a huge success.
