1. Exposition

Where does 1:10-15 originate from?

Judges 1:10–15 (ESV)

10 And Judah went against the Canaanites who lived in Hebron (now the name of Hebron was formerly Kiriath-arba), and they defeated Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai.

Judges 1:10–15 is a story that is actually taken right out of the middle of Joshua 15:15–19. There, Joshua is alive, yet Judges 1:1 indicates he is dead. This is further evidence that the book of Judges is not organized from a strictly chronological perspective.
