Joshua 7:16-18

Context

7:16 Bright and early the next morning Joshua made Israel approach in tribal order 1  and the tribe of Judah was selected. 7:17 He then made the clans of Judah approach and the clan of the Zerahites was selected. He made the clan of the Zerahites approach and Zabdi 2  was selected. 3  7:18 He then made Zabdi’s 4  family approach man by man 5  and Achan son of Carmi, son of Zabdi, son of Zerah, from the tribe of Judah, was selected.

1 tn Heb “by tribes.”

2 tn See the note on “Zabdi” in 1 Chr 7:1.

3 tn Heb “and he selected Zabdi.” The Lord is the apparent subject. The LXX supports reading a passive (Niphal) form here, as does the immediate context.

4 tn Heb “his”; the referent (Zabdi) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

5 tn Heb “by men.”
