Coffman Commentaries on the Bible

"And Joshua rose up early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of Jehovah. And the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of Jehovah went on continually, and blew the trumpets; and the armed men went before them; and the rearward came after the ark of Jehovah, the priests blowing the trumpets as they went. And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned into the camp: so they did six days."

Certainly it must be accepted that this procedure, day after day, without any VISIBLE results of what they were doing must have been a severe "test of the discipline and faith of the Hebrews."[25]

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And Joshua rose early in the morning,.... Of the second day; to take care of, direct, and prepare everything for another procession on that day; so active and diligent was he to do the will and work of God, exactly and punctually:

and the priests took up the ark of the Lord; and carried it about as they had done the day before.

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible - Unabridged

And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the LORD.

Joshua rose early in the morning. The second day's procession seems to have taken place in the morning. In all other respects, down even to the small details, the arrangements of the first day continued to be the rule followed on the other six.
