Joshua 6:4  (King James Version)
And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets.
 


trumpets of rams'
The words {shopheroth hyyovelim,} should rather be rendered jubilee, trumpets, i
e., such as were used on the jubilee, which were probably made of horn or silver: for the entrance of the Israelites into Canaan was indeed a jubilee to them (See Note on Leviticus 25:11 ): instead of the dreadful trumpet of
war, they were ordered to sound the trumpet of joy, as already conquerors. Leviticus 25:9 ; Numbers 10:1-10 ; Judges 7:7 Judges 7:8 Judges 7:15-22 ; 2 Chronicles 13:12 ; 2 Chronicles 20:17 2 Chronicles 20:19 2 Chronicles 20:21
