    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:1

    ¶ Pero Jericó estaba cerrada, bien cerrada, a causa de los hijos de Israel; nadie entraba, ni salía.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joshua 6:1

    Verse 1. Now
    Jericho was straitly shut up] The king of Jericho, finding that the spies had escaped, though the city was always kept shut by night, took the most proper precaution to prevent every thing of the kind in future, by keeping the city shut both day and night, having, no doubt, laid in a sufficiency of provisions to stand a siege, being determined to defend himself to the uttermost.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. Now
    Jericho was straitly shut up, because of the children of Israel , etc.] Or “it shut up”, or “was shutting, and was shut up” f81 ; that is, the king and the inhabitants shut it up within; the Targum says with iron doors, and bars of brass, and it was blocked up without by the children of Israel: none went out and none came in ; none of their forces went out to make a sally on the Israelites, or to seek to make peace with them; nor any of their neighbours went in to them, to carry them any provision, or to assist them, or to be sheltered by them, not being able to do it because of the camp of Israel.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-5 -
    Jericho resolves Israel shall not be its master. It shut itself up being strongly fortified both by art and nature. Thus were the foolish, and their hearts hardened to their destruction; the miserabl case of all that strengthen themselves against the Almighty. God resolves Israel shall be its master, and that quickly. No warlik preparations were to be made. By the uncommon method of besieging the city, the Lord honoured the ark, as the symbol of his presence, an showed that all the victories were from him. The faith and patience of the people were proved and increased.
