Joshua 11:12 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

On account of this enormous number, and the might of the enemy, who were all the more to be dreaded because of their horses and chariots, the Lord encouraged Joshua again,

(Note: "As there was so much more difficulty connected with the destruction of so populous and well-disciplined an army, it was all the more necessary that he should be inspired with fresh confidence. For this reason God appeared to Joshua, and promised him the same success as He had given him so many times before." - Calvin.)

as in Joshua 8:1, by promising him that on the morrow He would deliver them all up slain before Israel; only Joshua was to lame their horses (Genesis 49:6) and burn their chariots. אנכי before נתן gives emphasis to the sentence: "I will provide for this; by my power, which is immeasurable, as I have shown thee so many times, and by my nod, by which heaven and earth are shaken, shall these things be done" (Masius).
