Joshua 6:16 Meaning and Commentary

Joshua 6:16

And it came to pass at the seventh time
Of their going round the city on the seventh day: and at the seventh time,

when the priests blew with the trumpets;
as they did every time they compassed the city:

Joshua said unto the people, shout;
both those that were armed, and those that were not; they were to make one grand and general shout at once, as when victory is obtained, or is sure, and so it follows:

for the Lord hath given you the city;
intimating that it would be presently delivered into their hands, and in such manner, that it would plainly show it was of the Lord, and no other.

Joshua 6:16 In-Context

14 So on the second day they marched around the city once and returned to the camp. They did this for six days.
15 On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city seven times.
16 The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet blast, Joshua commanded the army, “Shout! For the LORD has given you the city!
17 The city and all that is in it are to be devoted to the LORD. Only Rahab the prostitute and all who are with her in her house shall be spared, because she hid the spies we sent.
18 But keep away from the devoted things, so that you will not bring about your own destruction by taking any of them. Otherwise you will make the camp of Israel liable to destruction and bring trouble on it.
