Joshua 6:19

Joshua 6:19

But all the silver and gold, and vessels of brass and iron,
[are] consecrated to the Lord
Or rather, "for all the silver", &c. as the particle here used sometimes signifies, and is so rendered {d}: each of these metals, and whatsoever were made of them, were set apart for the Lord, and dedicated to sacred uses, and might not be converted to any other, unless what were upon their idols, which were to be burnt with fire, ( Deuteronomy 7:25 ) ;

they shall come into the treasury of the Lord;
be brought into the tabernacle, as Kimchi and Abarbinel interpret it, into some apartment there destined for such service, and which is clear from ( Joshua 6:24 ) ; the same where the offering of the officers was brought after the battle with Midian, ( Numbers 31:54 ) .
