Joshua 22:4 Meaning and Commentary

Joshua 22:4

And now the Lord your God hath given rest unto your brethren,
as he promised them
As in ( Joshua 21:44 ) ; see ( Deuteronomy 12:9 Deuteronomy 12:10 ) ;

therefore now return ye, and get ye unto your tents;
not their military tents in the army, from which they now came to Joshua, but their houses, as the Greek version, and their cities, as the Targum; they having been so long used to tents in the wilderness, and during the wars in Canaan, this was a familiar word for their dwellings:

[and] unto the land of your possession, which Moses the servant of the
Lord gave you, on the other side Jordan;
before his death, on condition of doing what they now had done; even the land of Gilead and Bashan, beyond Jordan.

Joshua 22:4 In-Context

2 And said unto them, Ye have kept all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, and have obeyed my voice in all that I commanded you:
3 Ye have not left your brethren these many days unto this day, but have kept the charge of the commandment of the LORD your God.
4 And now the LORD your God hath given rest unto your brethren, as he promised them: therefore now return ye, and get you unto your tents, and unto the land of your possession, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you on the other side Jordan.
5 But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law, which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to cleave unto him, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.
6 So Joshua blessed them, and sent them away: and they went unto their tents.
