So the people shouted, and the priests blew the shofars. And it came to pass when the people heard the sound of the shofar that the people shouted with a great shout and the wall fell underneath itself so that the people went up into the city, every man straight in front of him, and they captured the city. Bible

“So the people shouted, and the priests blew the shofars.” This first sentence is a summary; then the verse continues with more particulars on the situation.

“the wall fell underneath itself so that the people went up into the city.” See commentary on Joshua 6:5.

“every man straight in front of him.” Every soldier climbed the collapsed wall ramp and ran straight into the city (see commentary on Josh. 6:5).
