Chapter Summary

The textual unit of Joshua 9:1-13:7 is a central part of the Book of Joshua as is demonstrated by the contents of these chapters. It is important to study the text's literary artistry and use of genre conventions before a hypothesis concerning its possible antiquarian intent is formulated. The person of Joshua also turns the attention to the theme of obedience to the law in general, which plays a significant role in the Joshua narratives. This chapter also provides the key themes discussed in the other chapter so this book. In agreement with the methodological remarks at the end of section 1.2, Joshua 9:1-13:7 deserves a careful reading of the text in its present form and context. The chapter also presents a translation of MT according to a syntactical and interpretative arrangement in the colometric presentation of Joshua 9:1-13:7.
