The fear among the western Jordan population (Josh 5:1-5:1)

“When all the kings of the Amorites beyond the Jordan to the west, and all the kings of the Canaanites by the sea, heard that Yahweh had dried up the waters of the Jordan for the Israelites until they had crossed over, their hearts melted. There was no longer any spirit in them, because of the Israelites.”

Fear struck the Amorites and the Canaanites because the Israelites had dried up the Jordan River to pass over it.
