Joshua 23:8 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
23:8 Cleave to the Lord - By constant obedience, entire affection, faithful service and worship of him alone. To this day - To wit, since you came in to Canaan; since which time the body of the people (for of them he speaks, not of every particular person) had behaved themselves much better than they did in the wilderness, and had not been guilty of any gross and general apostacy from God, or rebellion against him.
Make sure you do not associate with the other people still remaining in the land. Do not even mention the names of their gods, much less swear by them or serve them or worship them.
"For the LORD has driven out great and powerful nations for you, and no one has yet been able to defeat you.
2 Kings 18:6
