And so did he unto them
What was good and right, he showed them favour, and did them justice:
and delivered them out of the hand of the children of Israel, that
they slew them not;
who were so incensed against them for imposing on them in the manner they did, that they were ready many of them to draw their swords and slay them; and would have done it, had it not been for the interposition of Joshua, and the orders he gave to the contrary.
