Author: David RothIf you are seeking to learn more about the Bible, looking for tools to increase your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, or simply need material for your Sunday School lessons or sermons, I hope this website will be a blessing to you. You can find my Daily Bible Studies in the column to the right.

My old website crashed and I could not move the Bible Study files from the old data base to this one. Therefore, I am having to copy them over one at a time. The Books of Genesis,  Exodus, Leviticus, Romans and James are now complete. I am working on Matthew and Joshua. Click on the Bible Study Library link in the right column and then choose. Eventually I will have over 3,000 daily studies when the work is done and I am still writing. God bless you for visiting this page.

Rolling Away the Reproach

Joshua 5:2-9

2  At that time the LORD said unto Joshua, Make thee sharp knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time. 3  And Joshua made him sharp knives, and circumcised the children of Israel at the hill of the foreskins. 4  And this [is] the cause why Joshua did circumcise: All the people that came out of Egypt, [that were] males, [even] all the men of war, died in the wilderness by the way, after they came out of Egypt. 5  Now all the people that came out were circumcised: but all the people [that were] born in the wilderness by the way as they came forth out of Egypt, [them] they had not circumcised. 6  For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people [that were] men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD: unto whom the LORD sware that he would not shew them the land, which the LORD sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey. 7  And their children, [whom] he raised up in their stead, them Joshua circumcised: for they were uncircumcised, because they had not circumcised them by the way. 8  And it came to pass, when they had done circumcising all the people, that they abode in their places in the camp, till they were whole. 9  And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day.


Joshua was told by God to, "Make thee sharp knives,"  (charboth tsurim), knives of rock, stone, or flint, "and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time." Adam Clarke wrote that Pliny "...says, when they amputate certain parts they do it with a sharp stone, because nothing else could be employed without danger." (Adam Clarke's Commentary) So, while there were metal instruments available, there was less chance of infection when using sharpened stones.   Read More
