Search The Scriptures —Study 11 — Joshua 15: 13 – 17:18
1. Is your environment as unpromising as the arid, giant-ridden Negeb seemed to Achsah? If so, compare her attitude with Lk. 11:13 and Phil. 4: 19, and be thankful!
2. Whose inheritance is described in today’s section? What attitudes were shown by the tribes and by Joshua? Why were the people of Joseph not praised as Caleb had been (14:13), when they made a particular claim to territory?
3. Using a concordance, study the character of Ephraim. Do you agree with Ellicott’s statement that ‘They were constantly asserting their right to the supremacy in Israel, without exhibiting any qualification for it’?
Note. 15:63, together with 2 Sa. 5:6, 7 shows that this book was written before David’s time.
