New International Version
3 So Joshua made flint knives and circumcised the Israelites at Gibeath Haaraloth.[a]
4 Now this is why he did so: All those who came out of Egypt—all the men of military age(A)—died in the wilderness on the way after leaving Egypt.(B) 5 All the people that came out had been circumcised, but all the people born in the wilderness during the journey from Egypt had not.
- Joshua 5:3 Gibeath Haaraloth means the hill of foreskins.
