Joshua 22:1  (King James Version)
Then Joshua called the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh,
 


Joshua
Numbers 32:18-33 ; Deuteronomy 29:7 Deuteronomy 29:8

Reubenites
We have already seen, that a detachment of Joshua 22:40 Joshua 22:000 ; men, of the tribes of Reuben and Gad, and the half tribe of Manasseh, had passed over Jordan armed, with their brethren, according to their agreement with Moses. The war being now concluded, the land divided, and their brethren settled, Joshua assembles these warriors; and with commendations for their services and fidelity, he dismisses them, having fist given them the most pious and suitable instructions. They had now been about seven years absent from their respective families; and though there was only the river Jordan between the camp of Gilgal and their own inheritance, yet it does not appear that they had, during that time, ever revisited their home, which they might have done at any time of the year, except the harvest, as the river was at other times easily fordable.
