<b>The literal understanding of metaphoric language in Joshua 10 : 12-14</b> <br>In this article the well-known passage in Joshua 10 : 12-14 is critically investigated within the context of the pericope of Joshua 10. A literary critical investigation shows, inter alia, that the oldest version of the pericope probably was a heroic saga of Joshua's campaign, with the miraculous intervention of YHWH having been "written into" the narrative at a later stage. During the latter process a poetic fragment, the original of which is lost to us, was interpreted literally, thus creating a miracle account. This miracle account serves the main focus of the pericope : YHWH alone makes possible the impossible for his people.
