SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:10 Â¶ Y los hijos de Israel asentaron el campoamento en Gilgal, y celebraron la pascua a los catorce días del mes, por la tarde, en los llanos de Jericó.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joshua 5:10 Verse 10. Kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the month] If the ceremony of circumcision was performed on the eleventh day of the month, as many think; and if the sore was at the worst on the thirteenth, and the passover was celebrated on the fourteenth, the people being then quite recovered; it must have been rather a miraculous than a natural healing. We have already seen from the account of Sir J. Chardin, that it required about three weeks to restore to soundness adults who had submitted to circumcision: if any thing like this took place in the case of the Israelites at Gilgal, they could not have celebrated the passover on the third or fourth day after their circumcision. The apparent impossibility of this led Mr. Harmer to suppose that they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the second month, the preceding time having been employed in the business of the circumcision. See his Observations, vol. iv., p. 427, &c.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 10. And the children of Israel encamped in Gilgal , etc.] Not after their circumcision, but before, and where they continued encamped during that, and until the passover had been kept by them; this was little more than a mile from Jericho, (see Gill on “ Joshua 4:19”); and kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the month at even ; exactly as it was ordered to be observed, and was observed when first kept, ( Exodus 12:6); in the plains of Jericho : a proper place both for their encampment, and the celebration of the passover, and where very likely they met with lambs enough for their purpose, which belonged to the inhabitants of Jericho; or however being now got into the good land, they needed not, and were under no temptation of sparing their own: historians agree, as Strabo f75 , Josephus f76 , and others, that Jericho was seated in a plain.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 10-12 - A solemn passover was kept, at the time appointed by the law, in the plains of Jericho, in defiance of the Canaanites round about them. It was a performance of the promise, that when they went up to keep the feasts, their land should be under the special protection of the Divin providence, Ex 34:24. Notice is taken of the ceasing of the manna a soon as they had eaten the old corn of the land. For as it came jus when they needed, so it continued as long as they needed it. Thi teaches us not to expect supplies by miracles, when they may be had in a common way. The word and ordinances of God are spiritual manna, with which God nourishes his people in this wilderness. Though ofte forfeited, yet they are continued while we are here; but when we com to the heavenly Canaan, this manna will cease, for we shall no longe need it.
