CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
9:8 Thy servants - We desire a league with you upon your own terms; we are ready to accept of any conditions. From whence came ye - For this free and general concession gave Joshua cause to suspect that they were Canaanites.
If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor.
So our elders and all our people instructed us, 'Take supplies for a long journey. Go meet with the people of Israel and tell them, "We are your servants; please make a treaty with us."'
2 Kings 10:5
