Joshua 12

Peake's Commentary on the BiblePeake's Commentary

Verses 1-24

Joshua 12. List of the Conquered Kings.— The whole of this chapter, which is a detailed expansion of Joshua 11:16, “ So Joshua took all that land,” is a late composition of the Deuteronomic school; of which it can only be said that the first six verses are probably less removed from historical verity than the last eighteen. The statement ( Joshua 12:6, that Moses had given the half tribe of Manasseh land on the east of the Jordan is unhistorical (ch. 17*). Joshua 12:10 ( cf. Judges 1:7) mentions the king of Jerusalem, but cf. Joshua 15:63 and Judges 1:21.
