The Oxford Bible Commentary Line-by-line commentary for the New Revised Standard Version Bible.

Joshua - Introduction

The text on which the commentary is based is the Masoretic Text (MT) in the edition Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia. It is well preserved and probably represents the oldest text form. The Greek version (LXX) of Joshua differs in numerous details from MT. While the differences are frequently attributable to the theological interpretation by the translators, LXX sometimes witnesses to better readings than MT. However, it does not represent an older or better text form. Fragments of Joshua have been recovered from Qumran Cave 4, and may testify to an independent text form.
