And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to the camp, to Gilgal.
The camp is the common desire of the Israelites whose intention is aimed only at correction, only at altruistic connections. They exist together in these desires, and therefore, they cannot settle in the captured cities or be among all the nations enslaved by their desires.
Comment: When cities are seized, the conquerors usually settle in them.
My Response: The fact is that a city embodies a certain egoistic desire, but this is not the case here.
Only in certain cities like Jerusalem that symbolize fundamental desires of nature that you are obliged to conquer and subdue can you dwell.
