    Get on your belly

    If an officer says "Get on your belly", what does it mean?

    Thanks.

    It means to lie face down.

    You probably mean "Lie on your stomach".
    "Lie down!" intransitive. lie/lay/lain.
    "Lay down your weapons!" transitive. lay/laid/laid. (They are different verbs)
    "When the officer told me to 'hit the ground' I lay on my stomach (past tense). 'hit the ground' means the same thing.
