Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Joshua 8:32

_ _ he wrote there upon the stones a copy of the law of Moses — (See on Deuteronomy 27:2, Deuteronomy 27:3, Deuteronomy 27:5); that is, the blessings and curses of the law. Some think that the stones which contained this inscription were the stones of the altar: but this verse seems rather to indicate that a number of stone pillars were erected alongside of the altar, and on which, after they were plastered, this duplicate of the law was inscribed.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Joshua 8:30-35.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joshua 8:32

Upon the stones — Not upon the stones of the altar, which were to be rough and unpolished, Joshua 8:31, but upon other stones, smooth and plaistered, as is manifest from Deuteronomy 27:2. The law of Moses — Not certainly the whole five books of Moses, for what stones and time would have sufficed for this, but the most weighty parts of the law, and especially the law of the ten commandments.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Joshua 8:32

And he wrote there upon the stones a (n) copy of the law of Moses, which he wrote in the presence of the children of Israel.

(n) Meaning, the ten commandments, which are the sum of the whole Law.
