SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:15 Â¶ Y Josué, y todo el pueblo con él, volvió al campamento en Gilgal.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joshua 10:15 Verse 15. And Joshua returned-unto the camp to Gilgal.] That the Israelitish army did not return to the camp at Gilgal till after the hanging of the five kings and the destruction of their cities, is sufficiently evident from the subsequent parts of this chapter. When all this business was done, and not before, they returned unto the camp to Gilgal; see ver. 43. This verse is omitted by the Septuagint and by the Anglo- Saxon; and it does not appear to have existed in the ancient hexaplar versions; it stands in its proper place in ver. 43, and is not only useless where it is, but appears to be an encumbrance to the narrative. Should it be considered as genuine and in its proper place, I would propose that hdqm makkedah should be read instead of hlglg gilgalah, for we find from ver. 21 that Joshua had a temporary camp there. Then Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, unto the camp to MAKKEDAH; after which we may suppose that Joshua having secured the cave, sent some detachments to scour the country and cut off all the remaining straggling Canaanites; when this was done they also returned to the camp at Makkedah, as is related ver. 21, and when the business was completed they struck the camp at Makkedah, and all returned to their fortified camp at Gilgal, ver. 43.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 15. And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, unto the camp to Gilgal .] That is, he thought to have returned, had determined upon it, and prepared for it, but was prevented by hearing that the five kings had hid themselves in a cave at Makkedah; which he ordered to be stopped up till the people had finished the pursuit of their enemies, when he destroyed Makkedah, and which led him on to the conquest of other places before he returned; or else this verse stands not in its proper place, or is superfluous, since the same is expressed ( Joshua 10:43); after all the above mentioned was done; the Septuagint version leaves it out.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 15-27 - None moved his tongue against any of the children of Israel. This show their perfect safety. The kings were called to an account, as rebel against the Israel of God. Refuges of lies will but secure for God' judgment. God punished the abominable wickedness of these kings, the measure of whose iniquity was now full. And by this public act of justice, done upon these ringleaders of the Canaanites in sin, he woul possess his people with the greater dread and detestation of the sin of the nations that God cast out from before them. Here is a type an figure of Christ's victories over the powers of darkness, and of believers' victories through him. In our spiritual conflicts we mus not be satisfied with obtaining some important victory. We must pursu our scattered enemies, searching out the remains of sin as they rise u in our hearts, and thus pursue the conquest. In so doing, the Lord wil afford light until the warfare be accomplished.
