It's a pleasure to see you here at Daily Bread for our study of the Old Testament stories of the Book of Joshua. At last the land was all divided and there was peace in the land all around, so Joshua commended the men of war of the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half tribe of Manasseh for keeping their word and staying to defend their brethren until the bitter end of conquering the Promised Land.

He then dismissed them with a blessing to go to their land beyond (east of) the Jordan and reunite with their families and possessions there.

It came to pass, that when they came to the Jordan, they built an altar there as a sign of their relationship with the people, their brethren, on the other side of the river.

When the Israelites on the west side of the Jordan heard that they had built an altar, and assuming it was for the worship of strange gods, they armed themselves, as for war, and approached them with an accusation.

The Hebrews from the east side of the Jordan explained their motives for building the altar, that it might be a sign of their unity, and that their children might never say to one another in the future that they don't belong to God.
