CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
20:37 Drew along - Or, extended themselves; whereas before they lay close and contracted into a narrow compass, now they spread themselves, and marched in rank and file as armies do.
So they stationed the main army north of the town and the ambush west of the town. Joshua himself spent that night in the valley.
As soon as Joshua gave this signal, all the men in ambush jumped up from their position and poured into the town. They quickly captured it and set it on fire.
