Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Joshua 9:18-27.


Joshua 9:27

_ _ hewers of wood and drawers of water — The menials who performed the lowest offices and drudgery in the sanctuary; whence they were called Nethinims (1 Chronicles 9:2; Ezra 2:43; Ezra 8:20); that is, given, appropriated. Their chastisement thus brought them into the possession of great religious privileges (Psalms 84:10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary
