&c.] For the space of fourteen years, which is the commonly received
notion of the Jews F6; seven years according to them the land was

but have kept the charge of the commandment of the Lord your God;
what both Moses and Joshua commanded them was from the mouth of the
Lord; so that, in obeying them, they obeyed him.
