Joshua 14:14 Meaning and Commentary

Joshua 14:14

Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of
Jephunneh the Kenezite unto this day
The time of the writing of this book:

because he wholly followed the Lord God of Israel;
as in ( Joshua 14:8 Joshua 14:9 ) ; Hebron signifies fellowship or communion; and this in a spiritual sense is very desirable by all the people of God, as Hebron was by Caleb, even communion with God, Father, Son and Spirit, with angels and saints, both now and hereafter; and they are willing to engage with their spiritual enemies in the name and strength of Christ, though ever so potent, may they but enjoy this blessing, and which is more or less granted, to all the hearty, sincere, and faithful followers of Christ; see ( John 14:21-23 ) ( 1 John 1:3 1 John 1:7 ) .
