\\INTRODUCTION TO JOSHUA 5\\

The Canaanites being dispirited on the passage of the children of
Israel through Jordan, \\#Jos 5:1\\; Joshua is ordered to circumcise such
of the people of Israel that were uncircumcised, \\#Jos 5:2-9\\; in order
to their eating of the passover, which was now to be kept, \\#Jos 5:10\\;
and they being now provided with corn sufficient, the manna ceased,
\\#Jos 5:11,12\\; and there appeared to Joshua a divine Person, in an
human form, to encourage and direct him what to do in the conquest of
the land, and particularly Jericho, \\#Jos 5:13-15\\.
