and they commanded the people, saying, As you are seeing the ark of the covenant of Jehovah your God, and the priests, the Levites, bearing it, then you◦ shall journey from your place, and go◦ after it.
Only▵ it shall be far between you and it about◦ two··thousand cubits by measure; come· not ·near to▵ it, so··that you may know the way by which you must go; for you have not crossed··over by this way from yesterday and the day before*.
And Joshua said, By this you shall know that a living God◦ is among you; and dispossessing you shall dispossess from before you the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Hivite, and the Perizzite, and the Girgashite, and the Amorite and the Jebusite.
And it shall be, as the soles of the feet of the priests bearing the ark of Jehovah, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the waters of the Jordan shall be cut··off, the waters that come··down from above; and they shall stand as one heap◦.
and as those bearing the ark had come even··to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests bearing the ark were dipped in the edge of the waters (and the Jordan fills all its banks all the days of the harvest),
that the waters coming··down from above stood; they rose··up in one heap◦, exceedingly far··away from Adam, the city that is by the side of Zarethan, and the waters coming··down upon the sea of the desert, the Salt sea, were finished, they were cut··off; and the people crossed··over in··front··of Jericho.
And the priests bearing the ark of the covenant of Jehovah stood firm◦ on◦ the dry◦ ground in the midst of the Jordan; and all Israel crossed··over on◦ dry◦ ground, until all the nation had finished crossing··over the Jordan.
