SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:12 Tomad, pues, ahora doce hombres de las tribus de Israel, de cada tribu uno.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joshua 3:12 Verse 12. Take you twelve men] See the note on chap. iv. 2.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 12. Now therefore take ye twelve men , etc.] For what end and purpose is not mentioned. Abarbinel is of opinion, that they were chosen and appointed, that every man might pitch upon and take a place for his tribe to encamp in, when they came on the other side Jordan: whether this was Joshua’s view or no is not certain; however, the use he made of these, thus provided by divine direction, is related ( Joshua 4:2-4); and these were to be taken out of the tribes of Israel, out of every tribe a man ; Levi not reckoned, having no part in the land; and so we find that tribe left out in other accounts, when there was a choice of twelve men out of each of the tribes, ( Numbers 13:4 34:19).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-13 - The waters of Jordan shall be cut off. This must be done in such a wa as never was done, but in the dividing of the Red sea. That miracle i here repeated; God has the same power to finish the salvation of his people, as to begin it; the WORD of the Lord was as truly with Joshu as with Moses. God's appearances for his people ought to encourag faith and hope. God's work is perfect, he will keep his people Jordan's flood cannot keep out Israel, Canaan's force cannot turn the out again.
