The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJoshua 22:20
Did not Achan the son of Zerah…
One that descended from
Zerah the son of Judah, (Joshua 7:18) ;
commit a trespass in the accursed thing;
in taking what was devoted to
and wrath fell on all the congregation of Israel?
and which was what
was feared now; and this instance is brought to show that such fears
were not groundless:
and that man perished not alone in his iniquity:
which seems to confirm
the notion of those who think that his children suffered with him;
though it may be observed, that it was through his sin that thirty six
men were slain by the men of Ai, (Joshua 7:5) .
