CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
23:4 That remain - Not yet conquered. An inheritance - You shall certainly subdue them, and inherit their hand, as you have done the rest, if you be not wanting to yourselves. All the nations - That is, with the land of those nations; the people put for their land, as we have seen before; and as sometimes on the contrary, the land is put for the people. The great sea - Where the Philistines, your most formidable adversaries yet survive; but them also and their land I have given to you, and you shall undoubtedly destroy them, if you will proceed vigorously in your work.
I will drive them out a little at a time until your population has increased enough to take possession of the land.
"When the LORD your God goes ahead of you and destroys the nations and you drive them out and live in their land,
I will no longer drive out the nations that Joshua left unconquered when he died.
He drove out the nations before them; he gave them their inheritance by lot. He settled the tribes of Israel into their homes.
"I will give you the land of Canaan as your special possession."
