Holy Ground ✡ "Remove Your Sandals From Your Feet" - Israel365

The captain of Hashem’s host answered Yehoshua, “Remove your sandals from your feet, for the place where you stand is holy.” AndYehoshua did so
Joshua 5:15 (The Israel Bible™)

וַיֹּאמֶר שַׂר־צְבָא יְהוָה אֶל־יְהוֹשֻׁעַ שַׁל־נַעַלְךָ מֵעַל רַגְלֶךָ כִּי הַמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר אַתָּה עֹמֵד עָלָיו קֹדֶשׁ הוּא וַיַּעַשׂ יְהוֹשֻׁעַ כֵּן

Holy Ground

Upon entering the Land of Israel, Yehoshua (Joshua) is told to remove his shoes because the place where he is standing is holy. This is reminiscent of the similar command given to Moshe (Moses) while standing at the burning bush on the mountain of God, Mount Sinai. But there is a critical difference. Unlike Sinai, which attained  temporary holiness, the place upon which Yehoshua stood is eternally sacred for it was the ground of the Land of Israel.
