Joshua 14

Chapter 14

14:3 For Moses had given the inheritance of a two tribes and an half tribe on the other side Jordan: but unto the Levites he gave none inheritance among them.


(a) As Reuben and Gad and half the tribe of Manasseh, ( Numbers 32:33 ).
14:4 For the children of Joseph were b two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim: therefore they gave no part unto the Levites in the land, save cities to dwell [in], with their suburbs for their cattle and for their substance.
(b) So though Levi lacked, yet were there still twelve tribes by this means.
14:6 Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said unto him, Thou knowest the thing that the LORD said unto Moses the man of God concerning me and c thee in Kadeshbarnea.

(c) Which was that only those two should enter into the land, ( Numbers 14:24 ).
14:8 Nevertheless my d brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God.
(d) Which were the ten other spies.
14:12 Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims [were] there, and [that] the cities [were] great [and] fenced: e if so be the LORD [will be] with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said.
(e) This he spoke out of modesty, and not from doubting.
14:15 And the name of Hebron before [was] Kirjatharba; [which Arba was] a f great man among the Anakims. And the land had rest from war.
(f) Either for his power or person.
