Joshua Chapter 16: What did the Tribes of Joseph Get?


Synopsis:

The 3 tribes of Joseph get their land. Each gets a section. They don’t bother to drive out the Canaanites. They allow them to live there under tribute.

In other words:

This is another land survey.

Typical Quote:

(Joshua 16:2) “And goeth out from Bethel to Luz and passeth along unto the borders of Archi to Ataroth.”

What I liked:

They didn’t kill the people in the towns they took over. That was a nice change from the previous massacres. (Joshua 16: 10)

Moral Lesson:

It isn’t necessary to kill everyone to rule over them.
