Joshua 15:3 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

"The mountain," according to the context, is the mountainous region of Hebron, where the spies had seen the Anakites (Numbers 13:22, Numbers 13:28). The two clauses, in Joshua 14:12, beginning with כּי are not to be construed as subordinate to one another, but are co-ordinate clauses, and contain two distinct motives in support of his petition: viz., "for thou heardest in that day," sc., what Jehovah said to me then, and also "for (because) the Anakites are there;" ... "perhaps Jehovah is with me (אתי for אתּי, see Ges. 103, 1, anm. 1, and Ewald, 264, b.), and I root them out" (vid., Joshua 15:14). The word "perhaps" does not express a doubt, but a hope or desire, or else, as Masius says, "hope mixed with difficulty; and whilst the difficulty detracts from the value, the hope stimulates the desire for the gift."
