Joshua 5:13-15 (NASB)
“Now it came about when Joshua was by Jericho, he raised his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing opposite him with his sword drawn in his hand, and Joshua went to him and said to him,
“Are you for us or for our enemies?”
He said, “No; rather I have come now as captain of the army of the Lord.”
And Joshua fell on his face to the ground, and bowed down, and said to him,
“What has my lord to say to his servant?”
And the captain of the Lord’s army said to Joshua,
“Remove your sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy.”
And Joshua did so.”
