Joshua 8:2 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Joshua sent two messengers directly to Achan's tent to fetch the things, and when they were brought he had them laid down before Jehovah, i.e., before the tabernacle, where the whole affair had taken place. הצּיק, here and in 2 Samuel 15:24, signifies to lay down (synonymous with הצּיג), whilst the Hiphil form is used for pouring out.
