Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Joshua 24:3

_ _ I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan — It was an irresistible impulse of divine grace which led the patriarch to leave his country and relatives, to migrate to Canaan, and live a “stranger and pilgrim” in that land.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Joshua 24:1-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joshua 24:3

I took — I snatched him out of that idolatrous place, and took him into acquaintance and covenant with myself, which was the highest honour and happiness he was capable of. And led — That is I brought him after his father's death into Canaan, Genesis 12:1, and I conducted and preserved him in all his travels through the several parts of Canaan. And multiplied — That is, gave him a numerous posterity, not only by Hagar and Keturah, but even by Sarah and by Isaac. Gave Isaac — By my special power and grace to be heir of my covenant, and all my promises, and the seed in or by which all the nations were to be blessed.
