SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:17 Y fue dicho a Josué que los cinco reyes habían sido hallados en una cueva en Maceda.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 17. And it was told Joshua , etc.] Either by some of his own people, or by some of the inhabitants of the land in his interest, who had observed it: saying, the five kings are found hid in a cave at Makkedah : this seems to make it appear that they were others, and not Joshua’s soldiers, that found them; for had they, no doubt they would have seized them, and brought them before him, or slain them, unless they chose first to know his will concerning them, next expressed.
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.
