A second circumcision
5:1 And it came to pass, when all the kings of
the Amorites, which [were] on the side of Jordan westward, and
all the kings of the Canaanites, which [were] by the sea, heard
that the LORD had dried up the waters of Jordan from before the
children of Israel, until we were passed over, that their heart
melted, neither was there spirit in them any more, because of the
children of Israel.
5:2 At that time the LORD said unto Yeshua, Make ya'll sharp
knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second
5:3 And Yeshua made him sharp knives, and circumcised the
children of Israel at the hill of the foreskins.
5:4 And this [is] the cause why Yeshua did circumcise All the
people that came out of Egypt, [that were] males, [even] all the
men of war, died in the wilderness by the way, after they came
out of Egypt.
5:5 Now all the people that came out were circumcised but all the
people [that were] born in the wilderness by the way as they came
forth out of Egypt, [them] they had not circumcised.
5:6 For the children of Israel walked forty years in the
wilderness, till all the people [that were] men of war, which
came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the
voice of the LORD unto whom the LORD sware that he would not show
them the land, which the LORD sware unto their fathers that he
would give us, a land that flows with milk and honey.
5:7 And their children, [whom] he raised up in their stead, them
Yeshua circumcised for they were uncircumcised, because they had
not circumcised them by the way.
5:8 And it came to pass, when they had done circumcising all the
people, that they abode in their places in the camp, till they
5:9 And the LORD said unto Yeshua, This day have I rolled away
the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the
place is called Gilgal unto this day.
5:10 And the children of Israel encamped in Gilgal, and kept the
passover on the fourteenth day of the month at even in the plains
5:11 And they did eat of the old corn of the land the next day
after the passover, unleavened cakes, and parched [corn] in the
5:12 And the manna ceased the next day after they had eaten of
the old corn of the land ; neither had the children of Israel
manna any more ; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of
Canaan that year.
5:13 And it came to pass, when Yeshua was by Jericho, that he
lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man
over against him with his sword drawn in his hand and Yeshua went
unto him, and said unto him, [Are] you for us, or for our
5:14 And he said, Nay ; but [as] captain of the host of the LORD
am I now come. And Yeshua fell on his face to the earth, and did
worship, and said unto him, What says my lord unto his servant ?
5:15 And the captain of the LORD'S host said unto Yeshua, Loose
your shoe from off your foot ; for the place whereon you stand
[is] holy. And Yeshua did so.
