Joshua 10:21

Context
10:21 Then the whole army safely returned to Joshua at the camp in Makkedah. 1  No one 2  dared threaten the Israelites. 3 

1 tn Heb “all the people returned to the camp, to Joshua [at] Makkedah [in] peace.”

2 tc Heb “No man.” The lamed (ל) prefixed to אִישׁ (’ish, “man”) is probably dittographic (note the immediately preceding יִשְׂרָאֵל [israel] which ends in lamed, ל); cf. the LXX.

3 tn Heb “no man sharpened [or perhaps, “pointed”] his tongue against the sons of Israel.” Cf. NEB “not a man of the Israelites suffered so much as a scratch on his tongue,” which understands “sharpened” as “scratched” (referring to a minor wound). Most modern translations understand the Hebrew expression “sharpened his tongue” figuratively for opposition or threats against the Israelites.
