Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Joshua 9:16-17

_ _ at the end of three days ... they heard that they were their neighbours, and that they dwelt among them — This information was obtained in their further progress through the country; for as Joshua 9:17 should be rendered, “when the children of Israel journeyed, they came to their cities.” Gibeon was about eighteen or twenty miles from Gilgal.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Joshua 9:15-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joshua 9:16

Three days — That is, at the last of them, or upon the third day, as it is said, Joshua 9:17.
