Joshua 3:1--4:24

And Joshua
<03091>
rose early
<07925> (8686)
in the morning
<01242>_;
and they removed
<05265> (8799)
from Shittim
<07851>_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to Jordan
<03383>_,
he and all the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and lodged
<03885> (8799)
there before they passed over
<05674> (8799)_.
And it came to pass after
<07097>
three
<07969>
days
<03117>_,
that the officers
<07860> (8802)
went
<05674> (8799)
through
<07130>
the host
<04264>_;
And they commanded
<06680> (8762)
the people
<05971>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
When ye see
<07200> (8800)
the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
of the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_,
and the priests
<03548>
the Levites
<03881>
bearing
<05375> (8802)
it, then ye shall remove
<05265> (8799)
from your place
<04725>_,
and go
<01980> (8804)
after
<0310>
it.
Yet there shall be a space
<07350>
between you and it, about two thousand
<0505>
cubits
<0520>
by measure
<04060>_:
come not near
<07126> (8799)
unto it, that ye may know
<03045> (8799)
the way
<01870>
by which ye must go
<03212> (8799)_:
for ye have not passed
<05674> (8804)
[this] way
<01870>
heretofore
<08543> <08032>_.
{heretofore: Heb. since yesterday, and the third day}
And Joshua
<03091>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the people
<05971>_,
Sanctify
<06942> (8690)
yourselves: for to morrow
<04279>
the LORD
<03068>
will do
<06213> (8799)
wonders
<06381> (8737)
among
<07130>
you.
And Joshua
<03091>
spake
<0559> (8799)
unto the priests
<03548>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Take up
<05375> (8798)
the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>_,
and pass over
<05674> (8798)
before
<06440>
the people
<05971>_.
And they took up
<05375> (8799)
the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
before
<06440>
the people
<05971>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Joshua
<03091>_,
This day
<03117>
will I begin
<02490> (8686)
to magnify
<01431> (8763)
thee in the sight
<05869>
of all Israel
<03478>_,
that they may know
<03045> (8799)
that, as I was with Moses
<04872>_,
[so] I will be with thee.
And thou shalt command
<06680> (8762)
the priests
<03548>
that bear
<05375> (8802)
the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
When ye are come
<0935> (8800)
to the brink
<07097>
of the water
<04325>
of Jordan
<03383>_,
ye shall stand still
<05975> (8799)
in Jordan
<03383>_.
And Joshua
<03091>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
Come hither
<05066> (8798)_,
and hear
<08085> (8798)
the words
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_.
And Joshua
<03091>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Hereby ye shall know
<03045> (8799)
that the living
<02416>
God
<0410>
[is] among
<07130>
you, and [that] he will without fail
<03423> (8687)
drive out
<03423> (8686)
from before
<06440>
you the Canaanites
<03669>_,
and the Hittites
<02850>_,
and the Hivites
<02340>_,
and the Perizzites
<06522>_,
and the Girgashites
<01622>_,
and the Amorites
<0567>_,
and the Jebusites
<02983>_.
Behold, the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
of the Lord
<0113>
of all the earth
<0776>
passeth over
<05674> (8802)
before
<06440>
you into Jordan
<03383>_.
Now therefore take
<03947> (8798)
you twelve
<08147> <06240>
men
<0376>
out of the tribes
<07626>
of Israel
<03478>_,
out of every
<0259>
tribe
<07626>
a man
<0376>_.
And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles
<03709>
of the feet
<07272>
of the priests
<03548>
that bear
<05375> (8802)
the ark
<0727>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
the Lord
<0113>
of all the earth
<0776>_,
shall rest
<05117> (8800)
in the waters
<04325>
of Jordan
<03383>_,
[that] the waters
<04325>
of Jordan
<03383>
shall be cut off
<03772> (8735)
[from] the waters
<04325>
that come down
<03381> (8802)
from above
<04605>_;
and they shall stand
<05975> (8799)
upon an
<0259>
heap
<05067>_.
And it came to pass, when the people
<05971>
removed
<05265> (8800)
from their tents
<0168>_,
to pass over
<05674> (8800)
Jordan
<03383>_,
and the priests
<03548>
bearing
<05375> (8802)
the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
before
<06440>
the people
<05971>_;
And as they that bare
<05375> (8802)
the ark
<0727>
were come
<0935> (8800)
unto Jordan
<03383>_,
and the feet
<07272>
of the priests
<03548>
that bare
<05375> (8802)
the ark
<0727>
were dipped
<02881> (8738)
in the brim
<07097>
of the water
<04325>_,
(for Jordan
<03383>
overfloweth
<04390> (8804)
all his banks
<01415>
all the time
<03117>
of harvest
<07105>,)
That the waters
<04325>
which came down
<03381> (8802)
from above
<04605>
stood
<05975> (8799)
[and] rose up
<06965> (8804)
upon an
<0259>
heap
<05067>
very
<03966>
far
<07368> (8687)
from the city
<05892>
Adam
<0121>_,
that [is] beside
<06654>
Zaretan
<06891>_:
and those that came down
<03381> (8802)
toward the sea
<03220>
of the plain
<06160>_,
[even] the salt
<04417>
sea
<03220>_,
failed
<08552> (8804)_,
[and] were cut off
<03772> (8738)_:
and the people
<05971>
passed over
<05674> (8804)
right against Jericho
<03405>_.
And the priests
<03548>
that bare
<05375> (8802)
the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
of the LORD
<03068>
stood
<05975> (8799)
firm
<03559> (8687)
on dry ground
<02724>
in the midst
<08432>
of Jordan
<03383>_,
and all the Israelites
<03478>
passed over
<05674> (8802)
on dry ground
<02724>_,
until all the people
<01471>
were passed
<05674> (0)
clean
<08552> (8804)
over
<05674> (8800)
Jordan
<03383>_.
And it came to pass, when all the people
<01471>
were clean
<08552> (8804)
passed over
<05674> (8800)
Jordan
<03383>_,
that the LORD
<03068>
spake
<0559> (8799)
unto Joshua
<03091>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Take
<03947> (8798)
you twelve
<08147> <06240>
men
<0582>
out of the people
<05971>_,
out of every
<0259>
tribe
<07626>
a man
<0376>_,
And command
<06680> (8761)
ye them, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Take
<05375> (8798)
you hence out of the midst
<08432>
of Jordan
<03383>_,
out of the place where the priests
<03548>_'
feet
<07272>
stood
<04673>
firm
<03559> (8687)_,
twelve
<08147> <06240>
stones
<068>_,
and ye shall carry them over
<05674> (8689)
with you, and leave
<03240> (8689)
them in the lodging place
<04411>_,
where ye shall lodge
<03885> (8799)
this night
<03915>_.
Then Joshua
<03091>
called
<07121> (8799)
the twelve
<08147> <06240>
men
<0376>_,
whom he had prepared
<03559> (8689)
of the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
out of every
<0259>
tribe
<07626>
a man
<0376>_:
And Joshua
<03091>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Pass over
<05674> (8798)
before
<06440>
the ark
<0727>
of the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>
into the midst
<08432>
of Jordan
<03383>_,
and take ye up
<07311> (8685)
every
<0259>
man
<0376>
of you a stone
<068>
upon his shoulder
<07926>_,
according unto the number
<04557>
of the tribes
<07626>
of the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_:
That this may be a sign
<0226>
among
<07130>
you, [that] when your children
<01121>
ask
<07592> (8799)
[their fathers] in time to come
<04279>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
What [mean] ye by these stones
<068>_?
{in time...: Heb. to morrow}
Then ye shall answer
<0559> (8804)
them, That the waters
<04325>
of Jordan
<03383>
were cut off
<03772> (8738)
before
<06440>
the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
of the LORD
<03068>_;
when it passed over
<05674> (8800)
Jordan
<03383>_,
the waters
<04325>
of Jordan
<03383>
were cut off
<03772> (8738)_:
and these stones
<068>
shall be for a memorial
<02146>
unto the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
for
<05704>
ever
<05769>_.
And the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
did
<06213> (8799)
so as Joshua
<03091>
commanded
<06680> (8765)_,
and took up
<05375> (8799)
twelve
<08147> <06240>
stones
<068>
out of the midst
<08432>
of Jordan
<03383>_,
as the LORD
<03068>
spake
<01696> (8765)
unto Joshua
<03091>_,
according to the number
<04557>
of the tribes
<07626>
of the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and carried them over
<05674> (8686)
with them unto the place where they lodged
<04411>_,
and laid them down
<03240> (8686)
there.
And Joshua
<03091>
set up
<06965> (8689)
twelve
<08147> <06240>
stones
<068>
in the midst
<08432>
of Jordan
<03383>_,
in the place where the feet
<07272>
of the priests
<03548>
which bare
<05375> (8802)
the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
stood
<04673>_:
and they are there unto this day
<03117>_.
For the priests
<03548>
which bare
<05375> (8802)
the ark
<0727>
stood
<05975> (8802)
in the midst
<08432>
of Jordan
<03383>_,
until every thing
<01697>
was finished
<08552> (8800)
that the LORD
<03068>
commanded
<06680> (8765)
Joshua
<03091>
to speak
<01696> (8763)
unto the people
<05971>_,
according to all that Moses
<04872>
commanded
<06680> (8765)
Joshua
<03091>_:
and the people
<05971>
hasted
<04116> (8762)
and passed over
<05674> (8799)_.
And it came to pass, when all the people
<05971>
were clean
<08552> (8804)
passed over
<05674> (8800)_,
that the ark
<0727>
of the LORD
<03068>
passed over
<05674> (8799)_,
and the priests
<03548>_,
in the presence
<06440>
of the people
<05971>_.
And the children
<01121>
of Reuben
<07205>_,
and the children
<01121>
of Gad
<01410>_,
and half
<02677>
the tribe
<07626>
of Manasseh
<04519>_,
passed over
<05674> (8799)
armed
<02571>
before
<06440>
the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
as Moses
<04872>
spake
<01696> (8765)
unto them:
About forty
<0705>
thousand
<0505>
prepared
<02502> (8803)
for war
<06635>
passed over
<05674> (8804)
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>
unto battle
<04421>_,
to the plains
<06160>
of Jericho
<03405>_.
{prepared: or, ready armed}
On that day
<03117>
the LORD
<03068>
magnified
<01431> (8765)
Joshua
<03091>
in the sight
<05869>
of all Israel
<03478>_;
and they feared
<03372> (8799)
him, as they feared
<03372> (8804)
Moses
<04872>_,
all the days
<03117>
of his life
<02416>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
spake
<0559> (8799)
unto Joshua
<03091>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Command
<06680> (8761)
the priests
<03548>
that bear
<05375> (8802)
the ark
<0727>
of the testimony
<05715>_,
that they come up
<05927> (8799)
out of Jordan
<03383>_.
Joshua
<03091>
therefore commanded
<06680> (8762)
the priests
<03548>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Come ye up
<05927> (8798)
out of Jordan
<03383>_.
And it came to pass, when the priests
<03548>
that bare
<05375> (8802)
the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
of the LORD
<03068>
were come up
<05927> (8800)
out of the midst
<08432>
of Jordan
<03383>_,
[and] the soles
<03709>
of the priests
<03548>_'
feet
<07272>
were lifted up
<05423> (8738)
unto the dry land
<02724>_,
that the waters
<04325>
of Jordan
<03383>
returned
<07725> (8799)
unto their place
<04725>_,
and flowed
<03212> (8799)
over all his banks
<01415>_,
as
<08543>
[they did] before
<08032>_.
{lifted...: Heb. plucked up} {flowed: Heb. went}
And the people
<05971>
came up
<05927> (8804)
out of Jordan
<03383>
on the tenth
<06218>
[day] of the first
<07223>
month
<02320>_,
and encamped
<02583> (8799)
in Gilgal
<01537>_,
in the east
<04217>
border
<07097>
of Jericho
<03405>_.
And those twelve
<08147> <06240>
stones
<068>_,
which they took out
<03947> (8804)
of Jordan
<03383>_,
did Joshua
<03091>
pitch
<06965> (8689)
in Gilgal
<01537>_.
And he spake
<0559> (8799)
unto the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
When your children
<01121>
shall ask
<07592> (8799)
their fathers
<01>
in time to come
<04279>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
What [mean] these stones
<068>_?
{in time...: Heb. to morrow}
Then ye shall let your children
<01121>
know
<03045> (8689)_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Israel
<03478>
came over
<05674> (8804)
this Jordan
<03383>
on dry land
<03004>_.
For the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>
dried up
<03001> (8689)
the waters
<04325>
of Jordan
<03383>
from before
<06440>
you, until ye were passed over
<05674> (8800)_,
as the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>
did
<06213> (8804)
to the Red
<05488>
sea
<03220>_,
which he dried up
<03001> (8689)
from before
<06440>
us, until we were gone over
<05674> (8800)_:
That all the people
<05971>
of the earth
<0776>
might know
<03045> (8800)
the hand
<03027>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
that it [is] mighty
<02389>_:
that ye might fear
<03372> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>
for ever
<03117>_.
{for ever: Heb. all days}
