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

“Then Joshua called the twelve 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 Joshua 4:16.

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