Scripture Reference:

Scripture Reference: Joshua 5:1-3, 8; I Kings 17:1-9

Joshua 5:1-3 1And it came to pass,
when all the kings of the Amorites, which were on the side of Jordan westward,
and all the kings of the Canaanites, which were by the sea, heard that the LORD
had dried up the waters of Jordan from before the children of Israel, until we
were passed over, that their heart melted, neither was there spirit in them any
more, because of the children of Israel.
2At that time the LORD
said unto Joshua, Make thee sharp knives, and circumcise again the children of
Israel the second time.
3And Joshua made him
sharp knives, and circumcised the children of Israel at the hill of the
foreskins.

Joshua 5:8 8And 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.

1 Kings 17:1-9 1And Elijah the
Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God
of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these
years, but according to my word.
2And
the word of the LORD came unto him, saying,
3Get thee hence, and
turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before
Jordan.
4And it shall be, that
thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee
there.
5So he went and did
according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook
Cherith, that is before Jordan.
6And
the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in
the evening; and he drank of the brook.
7And
it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been
no rain in the land.
8And
the word of the LORD came unto him, saying,
9Arise, get thee to
Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded
a widow woman there to sustain thee.
