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 ) .

Joshua 14:14 In-Context

12 So give me the hill country that the LORD promised me. You will remember that as scouts we found the descendants of Anak living there in great, walled towns. But if the LORD is with me, I will drive them out of the land, just as the LORD said.”
13 So Joshua blessed Caleb son of Jephunneh and gave Hebron to him as his portion of land.
14 Hebron still belongs to the descendants of Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite because he wholeheartedly followed the LORD, the God of Israel.
15 (Previously Hebron had been called Kiriath-arba. It had been named after Arba, a great hero of the descendants of Anak.) And the land had rest from war.
