Joshua 6:5

5. So Joshua the son of Nun went to the priests 6. and he spoke to them, saying, "Command the people to go around and surround the city, and let the men of war pass on armed before the Lord.

(I include verse 6 because the study note refers to both verses.)

Note: Israel, which prefigures the Church, has been made ready. Now the people must act in faith and obedience. The Lord Himself will bring down the walls, which speak of sin and death. He will destroy the enemies and lead the faithful to safely inhabit a world once held captive by darkness.


Plus, you get a bonus, 'phrase of the day': "I'm not saying that you're lying, I'm just saying that I don't believe you." - me to H2


  1. Great bonus phrase! :-)

    Thanks for including the study note. I really liked it.

    Since Joshua 4 doesn't have 30 verses, I'll just post the last one:

    24 He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the LORD is powerful and so that you might always fear the LORD your God.


  2. Susanne,

    I thought you'd like it. :)

    Oooh...I like your (runner up) verse better.
