1 When all the kings of the Amorites living to westward across the Jordan, and all the kings of the Canaanites living on the seaboard, heard that Yahweh had dried up the waters of the Jordan before the Israelites until they had crossed, their hearts failed and they lost all courage to resist the Israelites.
Num 13:29 1Kgs 10:5 Josh 2:9-11 1Sam 25:37 2Sam 21:2 Amos 2:9 Dan 5:6
2 At this time Yahweh said to Joshua, 'Make flint knives and circumcise the Israelites again (a second time).
Exod 4:25 Col 2:11 Deut 10:16 Deut 30:6 Gen 17:10-14 Rom 2:29 Rom 4:11
3 Joshua made flint knives and circumcised the Israelites on the Hill of Foreskins.
Gen 17:23-27 Matt 16:24
4 The reason why Joshua circumcised them was this. All the males of the people who had come out of Egypt of age to bear arms had died in the desert on their journey after leaving Egypt.
1Cor 10:5 Deut 2:16 Num 26:64-65 Deut 2:14 Heb 3:17-19 Num 14:22
5 Now, all the people who came out had been circumcised; but none of those born in the desert, during the journey, after leaving Egypt, had been circumcised;
1Cor 7:19 Deut 12:8-9 Gal 5:6 Gal 6:15 Hos 6:6-7 Matt 12:7 Rom 2:26
6 for the Israelites walked the desert for forty years, until the whole nation had died out, that is, the men who had come out of Egypt of age to bear arms; they had not obeyed the voice of Yahweh, and Yahweh had sworn to them never to let them see the land which he had sworn to their ancestors that he would give us a land flowing with milk and honey.
Deut 2:7 Deut 2:14 Exod 3:8 Num 14:23 Deut 1:3 Deut 8:4 Heb 3:11
7 But in place of these he set their sons, and these were the ones whom Joshua circumcised: they were uncircumcised because they had not been circumcised during the journey.
Deut 1:39 Num 14:31
8 When the circumcising of the whole nation was finished, they stayed resting in the camp till they were well again.
9 Yahweh then said to Joshua, 'Today I have taken the shame of Egypt away from you.' Hence, the place has been called Gilgal ever since.
Gen 34:14 Josh 4:19 Lev 24:14 1Sam 14:6 1Sam 17:26 1Sam 17:36 Eph 2:11-12
10 The Israelites pitched their camp at Gilgal and kept the Passover there on the fourteenth day of the month, at evening, in the plain of Jericho.
Exod 12:6 Ezek 12:3 Ezek 12:6-16 Num 9:1-5
11 On the very next day after the Passover, they ate what the land produced, unleavened bread and roasted ears of corn.
Lev 23:14 Exod 12:18-20 Exod 13:6-7 Lev 23:6
12 The manna stopped the day after they had eaten the produce of the land. The Israelites from that year onwards ate the produce of Canaan and had no more manna.
Exod 16:35 Deut 6:10-11 Isa 65:13-14 Neh 9:20-21 Rev 7:16-17 Prov 13:22 John 4:38
13 Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him, grasping a naked sword. Joshua walked towards him and said to him, 'Are you on our side or on that of our enemies?'
Gen 18:2 Num 22:23 1Chr 21:30 Dan 10:5 Acts 1:10 Num 22:31 Exod 23:23
14 He replied, 'On neither side. I have come now as the captain of the army of Yahweh.' Joshua fell on his face to the ground, worshipping him, and said, 'What has my Lord to say to his servant?'
Gen 17:3 Acts 10:25-26 Dan 12:1 Isa 55:4 Dan 10:13 Dan 10:21 Isa 6:8
15 The captain of the army of Yahweh answered Joshua, 'Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy.' And Joshua did so.
