and command ye them, saying, Lift··up for yourselves from this place, from the midst of the Jordan, from the place which the feet of the priests stood··over, twelve stones prepared, and you shall cause them to cross··over with you, and place▫ them in the lodging··place in which you shall lodge* tonight.
And Joshua said to them, Cross· ye ·over before the ark of Jehovah your God, to▵ the midst of the Jordan, and lift··up◦ for yourselves each man◦ one stone on his shoulder, according··to the number of the tribes◦ of the sons of Israel,
And you shall say to them, Because the waters of the Jordan were cut··off from before the ark of the covenant of Jehovah; when it crossed··over into the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut··off; and these stones shall be for a memorial to the sons of Israel even··to eternity.
And the sons of Israel did so as◦ Joshua had commanded, and they took··up twelve stones out··of the midst of the Jordan, as◦ Jehovah had spoken to▵ Joshua, according··to▵ the number of the tribes◦ of the sons of Israel; and they brought· them ·across with them to▵ their place··to··pass··the··night, and placed them there.
And Joshua raised··up twelve stones in the midst of the Jordan, beneath the place which the feet of the priests carrying the ark of the covenant stood··over; and they are there even··to this day.
And the priests that bore the ark stood in the midst of the Jordan, until every word was finished that Jehovah commanded Joshua to speak to▵ the people, according··to all that Moses commanded Joshua; and the people hastened and crossed··over.
And it was, when the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of Jehovah had come··up out··of the midst of the Jordan, and the soles of the feet of the priests had been pulled··out onto▵ the dry◦ ground, that the waters of the Jordan returned to their place, and went over all its banks as from yesterday and the day before*.
As◦ Jehovah your God dried··up the waters of the Jordan from before you until you had crossed··over, as◦ Jehovah your God did to the Suph Sea*, which He dried··up from before us until we had crossed··over,
