He said to the Israelites, "In the future when your descendants ask their fathers, 'What do these stones mean?'122
tell them, 'Israel crossed the Jordan on dry ground.'223
For the LORD your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. The LORD your God did to the Jordan just what he had done to the Red Seaa when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over.324
He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know4 that the hand of the LORD is powerful5 and so that you might always fear the LORD your God.6"
