Then Joshua, and all Israel with him, crossed over from Makkedah to Libnah and fought against Libnah. Bible see other translations

“crossed over from Makkedah to Libnah.” The Hebrew text uses the same verb for “crossed over” that is used when speaking of Joshua and Israel crossing over the Jordan River into the Promised Land, and it uses that verb a number of times in this section. It seems that the verbs are being used purposely to tell people that the process of “crossing over” into full possession of the inheritance, the land, is still in process.
