    Definitions for Joshua 24:32

    Became - Was exactly suited for; was fitting.

    Clarke's Commentary on Joshua 24:32

    And the bones of Joseph - See the note on Genesis 50:25, and on Exodus 13:19. This burying of the bones of Joseph probably took place when the conquest of the land was completed, and each tribe had received its inheritance; for it is not likely that this was deferred till after the death of Joshua.
