Joshua 24:23 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The people responded to this appeal by declaring, with an expression of horror at idolatry, their hearty resolution to serve the Lord, who was their God, and had shown them such great mercies. The words, "that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage," call to mind the words appended to the first commandment (Exodus 20:2; Deuteronomy 5:6), which they hereby promise to observe. With the clause which follows, "who did those great signs in our sight," etc., they declare their assent to all that Joshua had called to their mind in Joshua 24:3-13. "We also" (Joshua 24:18), as well as thou and thy house (Joshua 24:15).
