And Joshua made him sharp knives, and circumcised the children of Israel at the hill of the foreskins.
And this is
the cause why Joshua did circumcise: All the people that came out of Egypt, that were
all the men of war, died in the wilderness by the way, after they came out of Egypt.
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.
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.
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.
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.
