morning therefore ye shall be brought according to your tribes: and it shall be, that the tribe which the LORD taketh shall come according to the families thereof; and the family which the LORD shall take shall come by households; and the household which the LORD shall take shall come man by man.
New Defender's Study Bible Notes
7:11 dissembled. A somewhat archaic term meaning “acted deceptively.”
7:16 was taken. The account does not say explicitly how the Lord identified the guilty man. Possibly it was by casting lots or, more likely, it was by means of the priestly use of the Urim and Thummim (see note on Exodus 28:30).
7:24 and his daughters. Such a large amount of forbidden booty (Joshua 7:21) could hardly have been carried and hidden by Achan alone, unaided by and unknown to his family. They may even have urged him to carry out the crime.
