Series: Above ALL
Hebrews 5:11-6:1 (NKJV) 11 of whom we have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. 12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. 14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. 1 Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God,

    The Word of God
    Series: Above ALL
    Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV) 12  For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

    A Savior That Cares
    Series: Above ALL
    Hebrews 2:6-10 (NKJV) 6  But one testified in a certain place, saying: "What is man that You are mindful of him, Or the son of man that You take care of him? 7  You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor, And set him over the works of Your hands. 8  You have put all things in subjection under his feet." For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him. 9  But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone. 10  For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

    Who Is This Jesus
    Series: Above ALL
    Hebrews 1:1-8 (KJV) 1  God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2  Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3  Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 4  Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 5  For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? 6  And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. 7  And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. 8  But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

    Victory in Jesus
    1 Peter 3:18-22 (NKJV) 18  For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit, 19  by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison, 20  who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water. 21  There is also an antitype which now saves us--baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 22  who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.

    Acts 17:16-18 (NKJV) 16  Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was provoked within him when he saw that the city was given over to idols. 17  Therefore he reasoned in the synagogue with the Jews and with the Gentile worshipers, and in the marketplace daily with those who happened to be there. 18  Then certain Epicurean and Stoic philosophers encountered him. And some said, "What does this babbler want to say?" Others said, "He seems to be a proclaimer of foreign gods," because he preached to them Jesus and the resurrection.

    Powerful Prayer
    Acts 12:1-11 (NKJV) 1  Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. 2  Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3  And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also. Now it was during the Days of Unleavened Bread. 4  So when he had arrested him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four squads of soldiers to keep him, intending to bring him before the people after Passover. 5  Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church. 6  And when Herod was about to bring him out, that night Peter was sleeping, bound with two chains between two soldiers; and the guards before the door were keeping the prison. 7  Now behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shone in the prison; and he struck Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, "Arise quickly!" And his chains fell off his hands. 8  Then the angel said to him, "Gird yourself and tie on your sandals"; and so he did. And he said to him, "Put on your garment and follow me." 9  So he went out and followed him, and did not know that what was done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision. 10  When they were past the first and the second guard posts, they came to the iron gate that leads to the city, which opened to them of its own accord; and they went out and went down one street, and immediately the angel departed from him. 11  And when Peter had come to himself, he said, "Now I know for certain that the Lord has sent His angel, and has delivered me from the hand of Herod and from all the expectation of the Jewish people."

    You Can Be Certain of Christ
    Acts 10:36-48 (NKJV) 36  The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ--He is Lord of all-- 37  that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: 38  how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. 39  And we are witnesses of all things which He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they killed by hanging on a tree. 40  Him God raised up on the third day, and showed Him openly, 41  not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before by God, even to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead. 42  And He commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is He who was ordained by God to be Judge of the living and the dead. 43  To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins." 44  While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. 45  And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. 46  For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God. Then Peter answered, 47  "Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?" 48  And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then they asked him to stay a few days.

    Acts 9:17-22 (NKJV) 17  And Ananias went his way and entered the house; and laying his hands on him he said, "Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit." 18  Immediately there fell from his eyes something like scales, and he received his sight at once; and he arose and was baptized. 19  So when he had received food, he was strengthened. Then Saul spent some days with the disciples at Damascus. 20  Immediately he preached the Christ in the synagogues, that He is the Son of God. 21  Then all who heard were amazed, and said, "Is this not he who destroyed those who called on this name in Jerusalem, and has come here for that purpose, so that he might bring them bound to the chief priests?" 22  But Saul increased all the more in strength, and confounded the Jews who dwelt in Damascus, proving that this Jesus is the Christ.

    Acts 9:1-6 (NKJV) 1  Then Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest 2  and asked letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. 3  As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. 4  Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?" 5  And he said, "Who are You, Lord?" Then the Lord said, "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads." 6  So he, trembling and astonished, said, "Lord, what do You want me to do?" Then the Lord said to him, "Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do."

    Acts 8:26-40 (NKJV) 26  Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, "Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza." This is desert. 27  So he arose and went. And behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge of all her treasury, and had come to Jerusalem to worship, 28  was returning. And sitting in his chariot, he was reading Isaiah the prophet. 29  Then the Spirit said to Philip, "Go near and overtake this chariot." 30  So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, "Do you understand what you are reading?" 31  And he said, "How can I, unless someone guides me?" And he asked Philip to come up and sit with him. 32  The place in the Scripture which he read was this: "He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; And as a lamb before its shearer is silent, So He opened not His mouth. 33  In His humiliation His justice was taken away, And who will declare His generation? For His life is taken from the earth." 34  So the eunuch answered Philip and said, "I ask you, of whom does the prophet say this, of himself or of some other man?" 35  Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him. 36  Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, "See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?" 37  Then Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may." And he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God." 38  So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him. 39  Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing. 40  But Philip was found at Azotus. And passing through, he preached in all the cities till he came to Caesarea.

I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!" 57  Then they cried out with a loud voice, stopped their ears, and ran at him with one accord; 58  and they cast him out of the city and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul. 59  And they stoned Stephen as he was calling on God and saying, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." 60  Then he knelt down and cried out with a loud voice, "Lord, do not charge them with this sin." And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

    John 20:1-31 (NKJV) 1  Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. 2  Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, "They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him." 3  Peter therefore went out, and the other disciple, and were going to the tomb. 4  So they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb first. 5  And he, stooping down and looking in, saw the linen cloths lying there; yet he did not go in. 6  Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there, 7  and the handkerchief that had been around His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded together in a place by itself. 8  Then the other disciple, who came to the tomb first, went in also; and he saw and believed. 9  For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead. 10  Then the disciples went away again to their own homes. 11  But Mary stood outside by the tomb weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the tomb. 12  And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 13  Then they said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She said to them, "Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him." 14  Now when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. 15  Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?" She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, "Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away." 16  Jesus said to her, "Mary!" She turned and said to Him, "Rabboni!" (which is to say, Teacher). 17  Jesus said to her, "Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, 'I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.' " 18  Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that He had spoken these things to her. 19  Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, "Peace be with you." 20  When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21  So Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you." 22  And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. 23  If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained." 24  Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25  The other disciples therefore said to him, "We have seen the Lord." So he said to them, "Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe." 26  And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, "Peace to you!" 27  Then He said to Thomas, "Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing." 28  And Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!" 29  Jesus said to him, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." 30  And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; 31  but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.

And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!" 30  Then they spat on Him, and took the reed and struck Him on the head. 31  And when they had mocked Him, they took the robe off Him, put His own clothes on Him, and led Him away to be crucified.

    Acts 6:1-7 (NKJV) 1  Now in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplying, there arose a complaint against the Hebrews by the Hellenists, because their widows were neglected in the daily distribution. 2  Then the twelve summoned the multitude of the disciples and said, "It is not desirable that we should leave the word of God and serve tables. 3  Therefore, brethren, seek out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business; 4  but we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word." 5  And the saying pleased the whole multitude. And they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch, 6  whom they set before the apostles; and when they had prayed, they laid hands on them. 7  Then the word of God spread, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests were obedient to the faith.

And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God." 5  Then Ananias, hearing these words, fell down and breathed his last. So great fear came upon all those who heard these things. 6  And the young men arose and wrapped him up, carried him out, and buried him. 7  Now it was about three hours later when his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. 8  And Peter answered her, "Tell me whether you sold the land for so much?" She said, "Yes, for so much." 9  Then Peter said to her, "How is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out." 10  Then immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. And the young men came in and found her dead, and carrying her out, buried her by her husband. 11  So great fear came upon all the church and upon all who heard these things.

For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him." 3  When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4  And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. 5  So they said to him, "In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet: 6  'But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel.' " 7  Then Herod, when he had secretly called the wise men, determined from them what time the star appeared. 8  And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and search carefully for the young Child, and when you have found Him, bring back word to me, that I may come and worship Him also." 9  When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. 10  When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. 11  And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 12  Then, being divinely warned in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed for their own country another way.

Then the slayer may return and come to his own city and his own house, to the city from which he fled.' " 7  So they appointed Kedesh in Galilee, in the mountains of Naphtali, Shechem in the mountains of Ephraim, and Kirjath Arba (which is Hebron) in the mountains of Judah. 8  And on the other side of the Jordan, by Jericho eastward, they assigned Bezer in the wilderness on the plain, from the tribe of Reuben, Ramoth in Gilead, from the tribe of Gad, and Golan in Bashan, from the tribe of Manasseh. 9  These were the cities appointed for all the children of Israel and for the stranger who dwelt among them, that whoever killed a person accidentally might flee there, and not die by the hand of the avenger of blood until he stood before the congregation.

Then you shall shout." 11  So he had the ark of the LORD circle the city, going around it once. Then they came into the camp and lodged in the camp. 12  And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the LORD. 13  Then seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD went on continually and blew with the trumpets. And the armed men went before them. But the rear guard came after the ark of the LORD, while the priests continued blowing the trumpets. 14  And the second day they marched around the city once and returned to the camp. So they did six days. 15  But it came to pass on the seventh day that they rose early, about the dawning of the day, and marched around the city seven times in the same manner. On that day only they marched around the city seven times. 16  And the seventh time it happened, when the priests blew the trumpets, that Joshua said to the people: "Shout, for the LORD has given you the city! 17  Now the city shall be doomed by the LORD to destruction, it and all who are in it. Only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all who are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent. 18  And you, by all means abstain from the accursed things, lest you become accursed when you take of the accursed things, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it. 19  But all the silver and gold, and vessels of bronze and iron, are consecrated to the LORD; they shall come into the treasury of the LORD." 20  So the people shouted when the priests blew the trumpets. And it happened when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat. Then the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city. 21  And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, ox and sheep and donkey, with the edge of the sword.

    Proverbs 31:10-31 (NKJV) 10  Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. 11  The heart of her husband safely trusts her; So he will have no lack of gain. 12  She does him good and not evil All the days of her life. 13  She seeks wool and flax, And willingly works with her hands. 14  She is like the merchant ships, She brings her food from afar. 15  She also rises while it is yet night, And provides food for her household, And a portion for her maidservants. 16  She considers a field and buys it; From her profits she plants a vineyard. 17  She girds herself with strength, And strengthens her arms. 18  She perceives that her merchandise is good, And her lamp does not go out by night. 19  She stretches out her hands to the distaff, And her hand holds the spindle. 20  She extends her hand to the poor, Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy. 21  She is not afraid of snow for her household, For all her household is clothed with scarlet. 22  She makes tapestry for herself; Her clothing is fine linen and purple. 23  Her husband is known in the gates, When he sits among the elders of the land. 24  She makes linen garments and sells them, And supplies sashes for the merchants. 25  Strength and honor are her clothing; She shall rejoice in time to come. 26  She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness. 27  She watches over the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness. 28  Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her: 29  "Many daughters have done well, But you excel them all." 30  Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. 31  Give her of the fruit of her hands, And let her own works praise her in the gates.

    Joshua 6:1-3 (NKJV) 1  Now Jericho was securely shut up because of the children of Israel; none went out, and none came in. 2  And the LORD said to Joshua: "See! I have given Jericho into your hand, its king, and the mighty men of valor. 3  You shall march around the city, all you men of war; you shall go all around the city once. This you shall do six days.

    1 Timothy 3:1-16  1  This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work. 2  A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach; 3  not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous; 4  one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence 5  (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?); 6  not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. 7  Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. 8  Likewise deacons must be reverent, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy for money, 9  holding the mystery of the faith with a pure conscience. 10  But let these also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons, being found blameless. 11  Likewise their wives must be reverent, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things. 12  Let deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. 13  For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a good standing and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus. 14  These things I write to you, though I hope to come to you shortly; 15  but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. 16  And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.

    Luke 24:1-12  1 Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. 2 But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. 3 Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 And it happened, as they were greatly perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. 5 Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, "Why do you seek the living among the dead? 6 He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, 7 saying, 'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.' " 8 And they remembered His words. 9 Then they returned from the tomb and told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. 10 It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them, who told these things to the apostles. 11 And their words seemed to them like idle tales, and they did not believe them. 12 But Peter arose and ran to the tomb; and stooping down, he saw the linen cloths lying by themselves; and he departed, marveling to himself at what had happened.

    Luke 19:37-48 (NKJV) 37  Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, 38  saying: "'Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the LORD!' Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" 39  And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, "Teacher, rebuke Your disciples." 40  But He answered and said to them, "I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out." 41  Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it, 42  saying, "If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43  For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, 44  and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation." 45  Then He went into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in it, 46  saying to them, "It is written, 'My house is a house of prayer,' but you have made it a 'den of thieves.' " 47  And He was teaching daily in the temple. But the chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people sought to destroy Him, 48  and were unable to do anything; for all the people were very attentive to hear Him.

    Joshua 5:13-15 (NKJV) 13  And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, "Are You for us or for our adversaries?" 14  So He said, "No, but as Commander of the army of the LORD I have now come." And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, "What does my Lord say to His servant?" 15  Then the Commander of the LORD'S army said to Joshua, "Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is holy." And Joshua did so.

    Joshua 5:1-9 (NKJV) 1  So it was, when all the kings of the Amorites who were on the west side of the Jordan, and all the kings of the Canaanites who were by the sea, heard that the LORD had dried up the waters of the Jordan from before the children of Israel until we had crossed over, that their heart melted; and there was no spirit in them any longer because of the children of Israel. 2  At that time the LORD said to Joshua, "Make flint knives for yourself, and circumcise the sons of Israel again the second time." 3  So Joshua made flint knives for himself, and circumcised the sons of Israel at the hill of the foreskins. 4  And this is the reason why Joshua circumcised them: All the people who came out of Egypt who were males, all the men of war, had died in the wilderness on the way, after they had come out of Egypt. 5  For all the people who came out had been circumcised, but all the people born in the wilderness, on the way as they came out of Egypt, had not been circumcised. 6  For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people who were men of war, who came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they did not obey the voice of the LORD--to whom the LORD swore that He would not show them the land which the LORD had sworn to their fathers that He would give us, "a land flowing with milk and honey." 7  Then Joshua circumcised their sons whom He raised up in their place; for they were uncircumcised, because they had not been circumcised on the way. 8  So it was, when they had finished circumcising all the people, that they stayed in their places in the camp till they were healed. 9  Then the LORD said to Joshua, "This day I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you." Therefore the name of the place is called Gilgal to this day.
