And the people came up out of the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month and encamped in Gilgal, on the east side of Jericho. Bible see other translations

“the tenth day of the first month.” The tenth day of the first month, Nisan, is the day that the Passover lamb is selected (Exod. 12:3). That means it had been almost 40 years to the day that Israel left Egypt, because they left on Nisan 15, 40 years before (Exod. 12:29-40).

“on the east side of Jericho.” No evidence for this camp has ever been found.
