    Clarke's Commentary on Joshua 6:25

    And she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day - This is one proof that the book was written in the time to which it is commonly referred; and certainly might have been done by the hand of Joshua himself, though doubtless many marginal notes may have since crept into the text, which, to superficial observers, give it the appearance of having been written after the days of Joshua. See the preface to this book.

    Barnes' Notes on Joshua 6:25

    Even unto this day - These words are rightly noted as implying that the narrative was written not long after the occurrences which it records.

    Wesley's Notes on Joshua 6:25

    6:25 The harlot olive - For that general command of rooting out the Canaanites seems to have had some exception, in case any of them had sincerely and seasonably cast off their wickedness, and submitted to the Israelites.
