Joshua 5


5:1 And it came to pass, when all the kings of the Amorites who
 [were] on the side of Jordan westward, and all the kings of the
 Canaanites who [were] by the sea, heard that the LORD had dried
 up the waters of Jordan from before the children of Israel,
 until we had 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 Joshua, Make thee sharp
 knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second
 time.
5:3 And Joshua made him sharp knives, and circumcised the
 children of Israel at the hill of the foreskins.
5:4 And this [is] the cause why Joshua 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 from 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 who came
 out of Egypt were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice
 of the LORD: to whom the LORD swore that he would not show them
 the land which the LORD swore to their fathers that he would
 give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey.
5:7 And their children, [whom] he raised up in their stead, them
 Joshua 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 Joshua, 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 evening in the
 plains of Jericho.
5:11 And they ate of the old corn of the land on the morrow
 after the passover, unleavened cakes, and parched [corn] in the
 same day.
5:12 And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of
 the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel
 manna any more; but they ate of the fruit of the land of Canaan
 that year.
5:13 And it came to pass when Joshua 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 Joshua
 went to him, and said to him, [Art] thou for us, or for our
 adversaries?
5:14 And he said, No; but [as] captain of the host of the LORD
 am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and
 worshiped, and said to him, What saith my lord to his servant?
5:15 And the captain of the LORD'S host said to Joshua, Loose
 thy shoe from off thy foot, for the place on which thou
 standest is holy: and Joshua did so.
