Then Joshua called the 12 men whom he had appointed from the children of Israel, one man from each tribe. Bible

“Then Joshua called the 12 men.” One of the themes in Joshua is Joshua’s obedience to God. We see it here in Joshua 4:3-4. God says, and Joshua obeys. See commentary on Josh. 4:16.

“one man from each tribe.” The Hebrew is idiomatic: “one man, one man from a tribe.”
