Joshua Chapter 5
1 And 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.
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.
12 And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.
13 And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?

Now the battle for conquering Canaan is about to begin and the Lord is preparing His people (Israelites) to take the land He promised their forefathers. An angel who is one of the captains of the hosts of heaven has appeared (last verse) to lead the battle. He is a covenant-keeping God and One that fights our battles for us. We will win only if we obey His commandments and love Him wholeheartedly.

To Bekezela Dube on Pro. 6:16 says (KJV) - seven ARE an abomination unto Him .....; the word 'are' is inclusive, meaning ALL 7 are abomination unto Him. The word 'hate' here is the same meaning as abomination. The word abomination used at the end stresses the reality of the hate. God wants to make sure they understand that He's serious.
