And Yahweh said to Joshua, “Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you.” Therefore the name of that place was called Gilgal to this day. Bible

“reproach.” The Hebrew refers to reproach, scorn, mocking, taunt. Jacob and his descendants were the people of Yahweh, the creator of the heavens and earth, but they were slaves to the Egyptians, and this certainly was a cause of reproach, scorn, and mocking.

“Gilgal.” “Gilgal” means “rolled away.”
