Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Joshua 10:16-27

_ _ Joshua 10:16-27. The five kings hanged.

_ _ these five kings ... hid themselves in a caveHebrew, “the cave.”

_ _ at Makkedah — The pursuit was continued, without interruption, to Makkedah at the foot of the western mountains, where Joshua seems to have halted with the main body of his troops while a detachment was sent forward to scour the country in pursuit of the remaining stragglers, a few of whom succeeded in reaching the neighboring cities. The last act, probably the next day, was the disposal of the prisoners, among whom the five kings were consigned to the infamous doom of being slain (Deuteronomy 20:16, Deuteronomy 20:17); and then their corpses were suspended on five trees till the evening.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Joshua 10:15-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joshua 10:16

A cave — A place of the greatest secrecy; but there is no escaping the eye or hand of God. At Makkedah — Heb. in Makkedah, not in the city, for that was not yet taken; but in the territory of it.
