John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joshua 7:7

Over Jordan — This and the following clause, tho' well intended, yet favour of human infirmity, and fall short of that reverence and modesty, and submission, which he owed to God; and are mentioned as instances that the holy men of God were subject to like passions and infirmities with other men.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Joshua 7:7

And Joshua said, Alas, O Lord GOD, wherefore hast thou at all brought this people over Jordan, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us? would to God we had been content, and dwelt on the (d) other side Jordan!

(d) This infirmity of his faith shows how we are inclined by nature to distrust.
