I thought that I would include some additional evidence from Joshua 5: 13-15 regarding the identity of the person to whom Joshua spoke. First of all, the man identified Himself as captain of the Lord’s host . This is very significant and I will wr ite further about this. More importantly, Joshua used the noun “adown” when he addressed the captain as Lord:

And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord (adown) unto his servant?

The Hebrew word Adown is a noun that can be used in reference to men who are masters, superintendents etc. However, it also refers to God. Given the fact that Joshua fell on his face and worshipped, I deduce that this visitor was not human, but God Himself.

Blessings and have a great day!



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?
