Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Joshua 7:24-26.


Joshua 7:26

_ _ they raised over him a great heap of stones — It is customary to raise cairns over the graves of criminals or infamous persons in the East still.

_ _ the name of that place was called, The valley of Achor — (“trouble”),

_ _ unto this day — So painful an episode would give notoriety to the spot, and it is more than once noted by the sacred writers of a later age (Isaiah 65:10; Hosea 2:15).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Joshua 7:16-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joshua 7:26

A great heap of stones — As a monument of the sin and judgment here mentioned, that others might be warned by the example; and as a brand of infamy, as Joshua 8:29; 2 Samuel 18:17. The valley of Achor — Or, the valley of trouble, from the double trouble expressed, Joshua 7:25.
