1 H1961 And it came H834 to pass, when H3605 all H1471 the people H8552 were clean H5674 passed H5674 over H3383 Jordan, H3068 that the LORD H559 spoke H3091 to Joshua, H559 saying,
2 H3947 Take H8147 you twelve H6240 H582 men H5971 out of the people, H7626 out of every tribe H376 a man,
3 H6680 And command H559 you them, saying, H5375 Take H2088 you hence H8432 out of the middle H3383 of Jordan, H3548 out of the place where the priests’ H7272 feet H4673 stood H3559 firm, H8147 twelve H6240 H68 stones, H5674 and you shall carry H5674 them over H5117 with you, and leave H4411 them in the lodging H834 place, where H3885 you shall lodge H3915 this night.
4 H3091 Then Joshua H7121 called H8147 the twelve H6240 H376 men, H834 whom H3559 he had prepared H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel, H7626 out of every tribe H376 a man:
5 H3091 And Joshua H559 said H5674 to them, Pass H5674 over H6440 before H727 the ark H3068 of the LORD H430 your God H413 into H8432 the middle H3383 of Jordan, H7311 and take H376 you up every man H68 of you a stone H7926 on his shoulder, H4557 according to the number H7626 of the tribes H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel:
6 H2063 That this H226 may be a sign H7130 among H3588 you, that when H1121 your children H7592 ask H4279 their fathers in time H4279 to come, H559 saying, H4100 What H428 mean you by these H68 stones?
7 H559 Then you shall answer H4325 them, That the waters H3383 of Jordan H3772 were cut H6440 off before H727 the ark H1285 of the covenant H3068 of the LORD; H5674 when it passed H5674 over H3383 Jordan, H4325 the waters H3383 of Jordan H3772 were cut H428 off: and these H68 stones H2146 shall be for a memorial H1121 to the children H3478 of Israel H5769 for ever.
8 H1121 And the children H3478 of Israel H6213 did H3651 so H3091 as Joshua H6680 commanded, H5375 and took H8147 up twelve H6240 H68 stones H8432 out of the middle H3383 of Jordan, H3068 as the LORD H1696 spoke H3091 to Joshua, H4557 according to the number H7626 of the tribes H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel, H5674 and carried H5674 them over H413 with them to the place where H4411 they lodged, H3240 and laid H8033 them down there.
9 H3091 And Joshua H6965 set H8147 up twelve H6240 H68 stones H8432 in the middle H3383 of Jordan, H7272 in the place where the feet H3548 of the priests H5375 which bore H727 the ark H1285 of the covenant H4673 stood: H8033 and they are there H2063 to this H3117 day.
10 H3548 For the priests H5375 which bore H727 the ark H5975 stood H8432 in the middle H3383 of Jordan, H5704 until H3605 every H1697 thing H8552 was finished H3068 that the LORD H6680 commanded H3091 Joshua H1696 to speak H5971 to the people, H3605 according to all H4872 that Moses H6680 commanded H3091 Joshua: H5971 and the people H4116 hurried H5674 and passed H5674 over.
11 H1961 And it came H834 to pass, when H3605 all H5971 the people H8552 were clean H5674 passed H5674 over, H727 that the ark H3068 of the LORD H5674 passed H5674 over, H3548 and the priests, H6440 in the presence H5971 of the people.
12 H1121 And the children H7205 of Reuben, H1121 and the children H1410 of Gad, H2677 and half H7626 the tribe H4519 of Manasseh, H5674 passed H5674 over H2571 armed H6440 before H1121 the children H3478 of Israel, H4872 as Moses H1696 spoke to them:
13 H705 About forty H505 thousand H2502 prepared H6635 for war H5674 passed H5674 over H6440 before H3068 the LORD H4421 to battle, H6160 to the plains H3405 of Jericho.
14 H3117 On that day H3068 the LORD H1431 magnified H3091 Joshua H5869 in the sight H3605 of all H3478 Israel; H3372 and they feared H3372 him, as they feared H4872 Moses, H3605 all H3117 the days H2416 of his life.
16 H6680 Command H3548 the priests H5375 that bear H727 the ark H5715 of the testimony, H5927 that they come H3383 up out of Jordan.
17 H3091 Joshua H6680 therefore commanded H3548 the priests, H559 saying, H5927 Come H3383 you up out of Jordan.
18 H1961 And it came H3548 to pass, when the priests H5375 that bore H727 the ark H1285 of the covenant H3068 of the LORD H5927 were come H8432 up out of the middle H3383 of Jordan, H3709 and the soles H3548 of the priests’ H7272 feet H5423 were lifted H2724 up to the dry H4325 land, that the waters H3383 of Jordan H7725 returned H4725 to their place, H3212 and flowed H5921 over H3605 all H1415 his banks, H8543 as they did before. H8032
19 H5971 And the people H5927 came H3383 up out of Jordan H6218 on the tenth H7223 day of the first H2320 month, H2583 and encamped H1537 in Gilgal, H4217 in the east H7097 border H3405 of Jericho.
20 H428 And those H8147 twelve H6240 H68 stones, H834 which H3947 they took H3383 out of Jordan, H3091 did Joshua H6965 pitch H1537 in Gilgal.
21 H559 And he spoke H1121 to the children H3478 of Israel, H559 saying, H834 When H1121 your children H7592 shall ask H1 their fathers H4279 in time H4279 to come, H559 saying, H4100 What H428 mean these H68 stones?
22 H1121 Then you shall let your children H3045 know, H559 saying, H3478 Israel H5674 came H5674 over H2088 this H3383 Jordan H3004 on dry land.
23 H3068 For the LORD H430 your God H3001 dried H4325 up the waters H3383 of Jordan H6440 from before H5704 you, until H5674 you were passed H5674 over, H3068 as the LORD H430 your God H6213 did H5488 to the Red H3220 sea, H834 which H3001 he dried H6440 up from before H5704 us, until H5674 we were gone H5674 over:
