And it came to pass at the seventh time
Of their going round the city on the seventh day: and at the seventh time,
when the priests blew with the trumpets;
as they did every time they compassed the city:
Joshua said unto the people, shout;
both those that were armed, and those that were not; they were to make one grand and general shout at once, as when victory is obtained, or is sure, and so it follows:
for the Lord hath given you the city;
intimating that it would be presently delivered into their hands, and in such manner, that it would plainly show it was of the Lord, and no other.
