Joshua 9:9

_ _ From a very far country thy servants are come because of the name of the Lord thy God — They pretended to be actuated by religious motives in seeking to be allied with His people.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joshua 9:9

Name of the Lord — Being moved thereunto by the report of his great and glorious nature and works; so they gave them hopes that they would embrace their religion. In Egypt — They cunningly mention those things only which were done some time ago, and say nothing of dividing Jordan, or the destruction of Jericho and Ai, as if they lived so far off that the fame of those things had not yet reached them.
