Or, in which F26, by manuring and cultivating it, by dunging, and ploughing, and sowing:

and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them;
neither built the houses in them, nor the walls and fortifications about them; in which now they dwelt safely, and at ease, and which had been promised them as well as what follows; see ( Deuteronomy 6:10 Deuteronomy 6:11 ) ,

of the vineyards and oliveyards, which ye planted not, do ye eat;
thus far an account is given of the many mercies they had been and were favoured with, and thus far are the words of the Lord by Joshua; next follow the use and improvement Joshua made of them.
