Book of Joshua

The Book of Joshua (Hebrew: ספר יהושע‎‎ Sefer Yĕhôshúa) is the 6th book in the Hebrew Bible aka the Old Testament and the main book of the Deuteronomistic history, the account of Israel from the victory of Canaan to the Babylonian outcast.

It recounts the crusades of the Israelite’s in focal, southern and northern Canaan, the pulverisation of their foes, and the division of the land among the twelve tribes, encircled by two set-piece talks, the first by Yahweh charging the triumph of the land, and, toward the end, the last by Joshua cautioning of the requirement for unwavering recognition of the Law (torah) uncovered to Moses.

The soonest parts of the book are potentially sections 2–11, the narrative of the triumph; these parts were later joined into an early type of Joshua composed late in the rule of lord Josiah (ruled 640–609 BCE), yet the book was not finished until after the fall of Jerusalem to the Neo-Babylonian Empire in 586 BCE, and conceivably not until after the arrival from the Babylonian outcast in 539 BCE.
