- Keil & Delitzsch, Commentary on the Old Testament, , Jos 10:16-19 The five kings fled and hid themselves in the cave that was a Makkedah. When they were discovered there, Joshua ordered large stones to be rolled before the entrance to the cave, and men to be placed there to watch, whilst the others pursued the enemy without ceasing, and smote their rear (vid., Deu_25:18), and prevented their entering into their cities. He himself remained at Makkedah (Jos_10:21).
