The Ancient Standard For Circumcision

Indigenous Australians who are covenanted by Yeshuwa, not Yahuw’ah who looked after the Yisra’elites, have varying attitudes towards circumcision. Some tribes or peoples do not even circumcise. Others split the shaft underneath and bind it up for procreation.

For those who circumcise this is the practice. A sharp flint knife cuts off the foreskin just in front of the glans penis after it has been fully stretched. The remaining skin retracts, exposing the glans. The wound is then wrapped with healing herbs and packed in clay. The young initiate then goes away for a long time with an elder and learns the ways of tribal men.

This procedure is set out in most part in Joshua, chapter 5. The flint knife is referred to in verse 2. In verse 9 Yahuw'ah said to Yehoshua, “I have rolled away the reproach of Mitsrayim (Egypt) from you”. The foreskins were gone. They could no longer be rolled back.

There was also quite a heap of foreskins to form a hill. In verse 3 Gibeath-ha’aralowth means “hill of the foreskins” (BDB-149). Logically there was no snipping or slitting, but the removal of flesh, each leaving an exposed glans. So Abel, Seth, Enoch, Methuselah, Noach and his sons, Abraham and his household and the Hebrews in Mitsrayim before the Passover were similarly circumcised.

There can be no doubt now about what is meant by circumcision. For safety’s sake have a qualified medical person perform the procedure.
