Question: how did they get all this names of the cities in chapter 18 n 19 in josue Answer: From the very beginning cities and places have always had names. They were named after people, or events, or their unique characteristics. We are not told exactly how those names were communicated to Israel. Perhaps they had signs just like we do today. Most likely they learned the names from the people who were already living in the area. -PJ
