MEMORIAL STONES And so be it, when all the goyim finish passing over Yarden, Yah Veh says to Yah Shua, saying, 2 Take twelve men from the people, one man - one man per scion, 3 and misvah them, saying, Lift twelve stones from midst Yarden whence the feet of the priests stand established and pass them over with you; and leave them in the lodge where you stay overnight this night. 4 Then Yah Shua calls the twelve men of the sons of Yisra El whom he had prepared - one man - one man per scion: 5 and Yah Shua says to them, Pass over at the face of the ark of Yah Veh your Elohim midst Yarden: and every man of you lift one stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the scions of the sons of Yisra El 6 to be a sign among you: so when your sons ask tomorrow, saying, What mean you by these stones? 7 Then you say to them, Because of the waters of Yarden being cut off at the face of the ark of the covenant of Yah Veh; when it passed over Yarden the waters of Yarden being cut off: and these stones become a memorial to the sons of Yisra El eternally. 8 And the sons of Yisra El work as Yah Shua misvahed, and lift twelve stones from midst Yarden as Yah Veh worded to Yah Shua; according to the number of the scions of the sons of Yisra El; and pass them over with them to the place they lodge and set them there: 9 and Yah Shua raises twelve stones midst Yarden, in the place where the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the covenant stand: and there they are to this day. 10 and the priests who bear the ark stand midst Yarden until every word Yah Veh misvahed to Yah Shua to word to the people is finished - according to all Mosheh misvahed Yah Shua: and the people hasten and pass over. 11 And so be it, when all the people finish passing over, the ark of Yah Veh and the priests pass over at the face of the people; 12 and the sons of Reu Ben and the sons of Gad and half the scion of Menash Sheh pass over in ranks of five at the face of the sons of Yisra El - as Mosheh worded them: 13 - about forty thousand equipped for hostility pass over at the face of Yah Veh to the plains of Yericho to war. 14 On that day Yah Veh greatens Yah Shua in the eyes of all Yisra El; and they awe him as they awed Mosheh all the days of his life. 15 And Yah Veh says to Yah Shua, saying, 16 Misvah the priests who bear the ark of the witness to ascend from Yarden. 17 - and Yah Shua misvahs the priests, saying, Ascend from Yarden. 18 And so be it, when the priests who bear the ark of the covenant of Yah Veh ascend from midst Yarden, and the soles of the feet of the priests tear to the parched area, the waters of Yarden return to their place, and go over all its banks as three yesters ago. 19 And the people ascend from Yarden on the tenth of the first month, and encamp in Gilgal by the rising of Yericho: 20 and those twelve stones they took from Yarden, Yah Shua raises in Gilgal. 21 And he says to the sons of Yisra El, saying, When your sons ask their fathers tomorrow, saying, What mean these stones? 22 - then have your sons know, saying, Yisra El passed over this Yarden on dry: 23 for Yah Veh your Elohim withered the waters of Yarden from your face until you passed over - as Yah Veh your Elohim worked to the Reed sea, which he withered from our face, until we passed over: 24 so that all the people of the earth know that the hand of Yah Veh is strong: that you awe Yah Veh your Elohim all days.
