Joshua 3:2

2 After three days the officers went through the camp

Joshua 3:2 Meaning and Commentary

Joshua 3:2

And it came to pass after three days
At the end of the three days they were bid to prepare food for their expedition, and to go over Jordan, ( Joshua 1:11 ) ;

that the officers went through the host;
the camp of Israel; very probably the same as in ( Joshua 1:10 ) ; this was, no doubt, by the order of Joshua, and who was directed to it by the Lord.

Joshua 3:2 In-Context

1 Joshua started early the next morning and left Acacia Grove with all the Israelites. They went as far as the Jordan and stayed there before crossing.
2 After three days the officers went through the camp
3 and commanded the people: "When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God carried by the Levitical priests, you must break camp and follow it.
4 But keep a distance of about 1,000 yards between yourselves and the ark. Don't go near it, so that you can see the way to go, for you haven't traveled this way before."
5 Joshua told the people, "Consecrate yourselves, because the Lord will do wonders among you tomorrow."
