Joshua 5:10 – 6:13

 5:10   And the children of Israel camped in Gilgal; and they held the Passover on the fourteenth day of the month in the evening on the plains of Jericho.

 5:11   And on the day after the Passover, on that very day, they ate of the produce of the land, unleavened cakes and parched grain.

 5:12   And the manna ceased on that day, when they ate of the produce of the land; and there was no longer manna for the children of Israel, but they ate of the yield of the land of Canaan that year.

 5:13   Now once, when Joshua was by Jericho, he lifted up his eyes and looked; and behold, there was a man standing opposite him, and His sword was drawn in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, Are You for us or for our adversaries?

 5:14   And He said, Neither, but as the Captain of Jehovah’s army have I now come. Then Joshua fell to the ground upon his face and worshipped. And he said to Him, What does my Lord speak to His servant?

 5:15   And the Captain of Jehovah’s army said to Joshua, Remove your sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy. And Joshua did so.

 6:1   Now Jericho was shut up so tight because of the children of Israel that no one went out and no one went in.

 6:2   And Jehovah said to Joshua, See, I have given Jericho and its king and the mighty men of valor into your hand.

 6:3   And you shall circle the city, all the men of valor, going around the city one time. Thus shall you do for six days.

 6:4   And seven priests shall carry seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the Ark. Then on the seventh day you shall circle the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets.

 6:5   And when they give off the blast of the ram’s horn and you hear the trumpet sound, all the people shall shout with a great shout. And the wall of the city will fall down flat, and the people shall go up, each straight ahead.

 6:6   So Joshua the son of Nun called the priests and said to them, Take up the Ark of the Covenant, and let seven priests carry seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the Ark of Jehovah.

 6:7   And he said to the people, Pass on and circle the city, and let the armed men pass on before the Ark of Jehovah.

 6:8   Then when Joshua had spoken to the people, the seven priests carrying the seven trumpets of rams’ horns before Jehovah passed on and blew the trumpets; and the Ark of the Covenant of Jehovah went after them.

 6:9   And the armed men went before the priests who blew the trumpets; and the rearguard went after the Ark, the trumpets continually blowing.

 6:10   And Joshua commanded the people, saying, You shall not shout, nor let your voice be heard, nor let a word go forth from your mouth, until the day I say to you, Shout! Then you shall shout.

 6:11   So he had the Ark of Jehovah circle the city, going around it one time. And they came into the camp and lodged in the camp.

 6:12   And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the Ark of Jehovah.

 6:13   And the seven priests carrying the seven trumpets of rams’ horns went before the Ark of Jehovah, continually blowing the trumpets; and the armed men went before them, and the rearguard went after the Ark of Jehovah, the trumpets continually blowing.
