Joshua 10:29 Meaning and Commentary

Joshua 10:29

And Joshua passed from Makkedah
After he had taken it, and destroyed its inhabitants, and its king:

and all Israel with him;
that is, all the men of war he took with him from the camp at Gilgal, from whence he went to the relief of Gibeon:

unto Libnah, and fought against Libnah;
a city that fell to the tribe of Judah, ( Joshua 15:42 ) . Jerom F18 says, in his time it was a village, in the region of Eleutheropolis, and was called Libnah; according to Bunting F19 it was but two miles from Makkedah.
