Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Joshua 22:33-34

_ _ the thing pleased the children of Israel — The explanation not only gave perfect satisfaction to the deputies, but elicited from them expressions of unbounded joy and thankfulness. “This day we perceive that the Lord is among us” [Joshua 22:31], that is, by His gracious presence and preventing goodness, which has kept you from falling into the suspected sin and rescued the nation from the calamity of a fratricidal war or providential judgments. This episode reflects honor upon all parties and shows that piety and zeal for the honor and worship of God animated the people that entered Canaan to an extent far beyond what was exemplified in many other periods of the history of Israel.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Joshua 22:30-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joshua 22:33

Destroy the land — As they were by the law of God obliged to do, if they had been guilty and persisted therein; as afterwards they did the tribe of Benjamin for the same reason.
