Reading: Joshua 9
Key Verse: Joshua 9:14
The Israelites sampled their provisions but did not enquire of the Lord.
The people of the land realised that what the God of Israel has said He can accomplished, as proven to them at Jericho and Ai. They are aware that God has told His people to annihilate all the people in the land. They know that judgement is coming and rightly fear for their lives. They know they cannot win in battle and so employ deceit in order to survive.
The leaders of Israel are taken in by the deception when they do not consult God. However being leaders of integrity they keep their word even to their own hurt.
