Joshua 12

A list of the kings defeated (and people’s slaughtered, it seems) by Moses and Joshua to take the promised land.

I counted them, then it gave me the number at the end anyway.  33 in all, Moses 2, Joshua 31.

This is the only memorial they have. What a person Joshua must have been (there is some dispute he may not be literally one person but a hybrid, mind you).

But whoever it was, it’s something. Dispassionately doing this work of the lord, not from hatred or for gain (as in personal wealth anyway). The means of god’s judgement.

I’m not going anywhere with this. It’s a list. It’s done.

I don’t think I fully understand it, so I could apologise for it. OK with trusting tho.
