Commentaries For Joshua 15

  • Chapter 16

    The sons of Joseph.

    - This and the following chapter should not be separated. They give the lots of Ephraim and Manasseh, the children of Joseph, who, next to Judah, were to have the post of honour, and therefore had the first and best portion in the northern part of Canaan, as Judah in the southern part. God's people now, as of old, suffer his enemies to remain. Blessed Lord, when will all ( 1 Corinthians. 15:26 ) thou alone canst do it. These settled boundaries may remind us, that our situation and provision in this life, as well as our future inheritance, are appointed by the only wise and righteous God, and we should be content with our portion, since he knows what is best for us, and all we have is more than we deserve.

  • CHAPTER 16

    Joshua 16:1-4 . THE GENERAL BORDERS OF THE SONS OF JOSEPH.

    1. the lot of the children of Joseph fell--Hebrew, "went forth," referring either to the lot as drawn out of the urn, or to the tract of land thereby assigned. The first four verses describe the territory allotted to the family of Joseph in the rich domains of central Palestine. It was drawn in one lot, that the brethren might be contiguously situated; but it was afterwards divided. The southern boundary only is described here; that on the north being irregular and less defined ( Joshua 17:10 Joshua 17:11 ), is not mentioned.
    water of Jericho--( 2 Kings 2:19 ), at the joint of its junction with the Jordan.
    mount Beth-el--the ridge south of Beth-el. Having described the position of Joseph's family generally the historian proceeds to define the territory; first, that of Ephraim.

    Joshua 16:5-9 . THE BORDERS OF THE INHERITANCE OF EPHRAIM.

    5-9. the border of their inheritance . . . was Ataroth-addar--Ataroth-addar (now Atara), four miles south of Jetta [ROBINSON], is fixed on as a center, through which a line is drawn from Upper Beth-horon to Michmethah, showing the western limit of their actual possessions. The tract beyond that to the sea was still unconquered.

    6, 7. Michmethah on the north side--The northern boundary is traced from this point eastward to the Jordan.

    8. from Tappuah westward unto the river Kanah--It is retraced from east to west, to describe the prospective and intended boundary, which was to reach to the sea. Kanah ("reedy") flows into the Mediterranean.

    9. separate cities for the children of Ephraim were among the inheritance of Manasseh--( Joshua 17:9 ), because it was found that the tract allotted to Ephraim was too small in proportion to its population and power.

    10. they drave not out the Canaanites . . . but the Canaanites dwell among the Ephraimites unto this day, and serve under tribute--This is the first mention of the fatal policy of the Israelites, in neglecting the divine command ( Deuteronomy 20:16 ) to exterminate the idolaters.
