John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joshua 5:5

Them — Either their parents, or the rulers of Israel, by Divine permission and indulgence; because they were now on a journey, in which case the passover also might be neglected, Numbers 9:10, Numbers 9:13. Rather, it was a continued token of God's displeasure against them, for their unbelief and murmuring: a token that they should never have the benefit of that promise, whereof circumcision was the seal.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Joshua 5:5

Now all the people that came out were circumcised: but all the people [that were] born in the wilderness by the way as they came forth out of Egypt, [them] they had (d) not circumcised.

(d) For they looked daily to move at the Lord's command, which they who were newly circumcised could not do without great danger.
