Joshua 3

ECB(i) 1
SONS OF YISRA EL PASS OVER YARDEN And Yah Shua starts early in the morning; and they pull stakes from Shittim and come to Yarden - he and all the sons of Yisra El; and stay there overnight ere they pass over. 2 And so be it, at the end of three days, the officers pass over midst the camp; 3 and they misvah the people, saying, When you see the ark of the covenant of Yah Veh your Elohim, and the priests the Leviym bearing it, then pull stakes from your place, and go after it; 4 there being a distance between you and it - about two thousand cubits by measure: approach not to it so that you know the way to go: for you passed not this way three yesters ago. 5 And Yah Shua says to the people, Hallow yourselves: for tomorrow Yah Veh works marvels among you. 6 And Yah Shua says to the priests, saying, Lift the ark of the covenant and pass over at the face of the people. - and they lift the ark of the covenant, and come at the face of the people. 7 And Yah Veh says to Yah Shua, This day I begin to greaten you in the eyes of all Yisra El, so that they know, as I became with Mosheh, thus I become with you; 8 misvah the priests bearing the ark of the covenant, saying, When you come to the edge of the water of Yarden, stand still in Yarden. 9 And Yah Shua says to the sons of Yisra El, Come near, hear the words of Yah Veh your Elohim! 10 And Yah Shua says, Hereby you know that the living El is among you; and in dispossessing, he dispossesses from your face the Kenaaniy and the Hethiy and the Hivviy and the Perizziy and the Girgashiy and the Emoriy and the Yebusiy. 11 Behold, the ark of the covenant of Adonay of all the earth passes at your face into Yarden: 12 and now, take twelve men of the scions of Yisra El - one man - one man per scion: 13 and so be it, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of Yah Veh - the Adonay of all the earth rest in the waters of Yarden, the waters of Yarden - the waters descending from above cut off and stand - one heap. 14 And so be it, when the people pull stakes from their tents to pass over Yarden; and the priests bear the ark of the covenant at the face of the people; 15 as they who bear the ark come to Yarden; and the feet of the priests who bear the ark dip in the edge of the water - for Yarden overflows its banks all the days of harvest; 16 the waters coming from above stand and rise - one heap - mighty far removed from Adam City beside Sarethan: and they who descend toward the sea of the plain, the salt sea, are consummated and cut off: and the people pass over right against Yericho: 17 and the priests bearing the ark of the covenant of Yah Veh stand established on a parched area midst Yarden, and all the Yisra Eliy pass over on a parched area, until all the goyim finish passing over Yarden.
