Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Joshua 18:3

_ _ How long are ye slack to go to possess the land, which the Lord God of your fathers hath given you — This reproof conveys an impression that the seven tribes were dilatory to a criminal extent.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Joshua 18:2-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joshua 18:3

How long are you slack — This slackness is supposed to arise from an opinion of the impossibility of making any regular distribution of the parts, 'till the whole were more exactly surveyed, which accordingly is here done. Likewise, being weary of war, and having sufficient plenty of all things, they were unwilling to run into new hazards.
