Now therefore when I come to thy servant my father, and the lad be not with us; seeing his life is bound up in the lad’s life; It shall come to pass, when he seeth that the lad is not with us, that he will die: and thy servants shall bring down the gray hairs of thy servant our father with sorrow to the grave . . .

They saw and heard and heard again of Israel’s passage through the river Jordan. What could they do against power like that?
