Happy July 4th!!! Instead of fireworks, we’re going to take a deep look at Joshua 14. I know, so much more fun than fireworks! 🙂
“Their inheritances were assigned by lot to the nine and a half tribes, as the Lord had commanded through Moses.” – Joshua 14:2
Just in case anyone thinks the Israelites are acting of their own accord, this verse states otherwise. The killing of children and babies and clearing of the land of the native population was directly the word of God.
Basically there’s very little worth mentioning in this chapter. Caleb argues with Joshua for a bit about some land and eventually Joshua gives it to him. The chapter ends with:
“Then the land had rest from war.” – Joshua 14:15
LOL! For how long? Is the Bible nothing but peace from here on out? Spoiler Alert! NOPE!!!
Coming Soon: Joshua – Chapter 15: Allotment for Judah
