"Listen to how Joshua and Caleb describe the inhabitants of Canaan—the 
people who rightfully possess the land the Israelites want to 
seize: "Have no fear then of the people of the country, for they are 
our prey" (my italics). "Prey"—that's a breathtaking and sinister 
word! Again we're reminded that the Torah is not aspiring to be a book 
for everyone. It is not preaching universal truth for all men. It is 
the work of a single tribe at war with everyone around it. Their 
enemies were not human: They were prey."
