    Douay-Rheims - Joshua 22:26

    And said: Let us build us an altar, not for holocausts, nor to offer victims,

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Original Hebrew

    ונאמר
    559 נעשׂה 6213 נא 4994 לנו  לבנות 1129  את 853  המזבח 4196  לא 3808  לעולה 5930  ולא 3808  לזבח׃ 2077  

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:26

    Por esto dijimos: Hagamos ahora por edificarnos un altar, no para holocausto ni para sacrificio,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joshua 22:26

    Verse 26. An
    altar, not for burnt-offering, nor for sacrifice] Because this would have been in flat opposition to the law, Lev. xvii. 8, 9; Deut. xii. 4-6, 10, 11, 13, 14, which most positively forbade any sacrifice or offering to be made in any other place than that one which the Lord should choose. Therefore the altar built by the Reubenites, &c., was for no religious purpose, but merely to serve as a testimony that they were one people with those on the west of Jordan, having the same religious and civil constitution, and bound by the same interests to keep that constitution inviolate.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 26. Therefore we said , etc.] One to another, in order to prevent the
    apostasy of our children from God, their departure from his worship, and going into idolatry: let us now prepare to build us an altar ; get materials ready, and set about it instantly, without any delay, while the thing dwells upon our minds: not for burnt offering, nor for sacrifice ; not for offerings of any kind required by the law, neither for sin offerings nor trespass offerings, nor any other not named.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 21-29 - The
    tribes took the reproofs of their brethren in good part. With solemnity and meekness they proceeded to give all the satisfaction in their power. Reverence of God is expressed in the form of their appeal This brief confession of faith would remove their brethren's suspicio that they intended to worship other gods. Let us always speak of God with seriousness, and mention his name with a solemn pause. Those wh make appeals to Heaven with a careless "God knows," take his name in vain: it is very unlike this. They express great confidence of their own uprightness in the matter of their appeal. "God knows it," for he is perfectly acquainted with the thoughts and intents of the heart. In every thing we do in religion, it highly concerns us to approv ourselves to God, remembering that he knows the heart. And if ou sincerity be known to God, we should study likewise to let others know it by its fruits, especially those who, though they mistake us, sho zeal for the glory of God. They disdained the design of which they wer suspected to be guilty, and fully explained their true intent in building this altar. Those who have found the comfort and benefit of God's ordinances, cannot but desire to preserve them to their seed, an to use all possible care that their children may be looked upon a having a part in him. Christ is the great Altar that sanctifies ever gift; the best evidence of our interest in him is the work of his Spirit in our hearts.
