Chapter 5

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 to Yeshua, Make ya'll sharp knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time.
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 to whom the LORD sware that he would not show them the land, which the LORD sware to 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 were whole.
5:9 And the LORD said to Yeshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal to 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 of Jericho.
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 selfsame day.

Manna ceases

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 to him, and said to him, [Are] you for us, or for our adversaries ?
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 to him, What says my lord to his servant ?
5:15 And the captain of the LORD'S host said to Yeshua, Loose your shoe from off your foot ; for the place whereon you stand [is] holy. And Yeshua did so.
