Notes: May 31, 2008 – Joshua 15

Caleb’s conquest is mentioned again in Joshua 15:13-19. When Othniel accepts the challenge to fight and to receive Caleb’s daughter for his wife, the bride-to-be asks her father for well-watered land, too. Daughters often know how to manipulate their fathers. Remember Pharaoh’s daughter who took a contraband Hebrew baby, and Rachel who successfully stole her father’s idols.

The following map will provide a general idea of where the various Israelite tribes settled.
