And Joshua set uptwelvestones in the midst of Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests which bare the ark of the covenantstood: and they are there unto this day.10
For the priests which bare the arkstood in the midst of Jordan, until every thing was finished that the LORDcommandedJoshua to speak unto the people, according to all that MosescommandedJoshua: and the peoplehasted and passed over .
And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed over , that the ark of the LORD passed over , and the priests, in the presence of the people.12
And the children of Reuben, and the children of Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh, passed overarmedbefore the children of Israel, as Mosesspake unto them:
About fortythousandprepareda for war passed overbefore the LORD unto battle, to the plains of Jericho.14
On that day the LORDmagnifiedJoshua in the sight of all Israel; and they feared him, as they fearedMoses, all the days of his life.15
And the LORDspake unto Joshua,saying ,
16Command the priests that bear the ark of the testimony, that they come up out of Jordan.17Joshua therefore commanded the priests,saying , Come ye up out of Jordan.18
And it came to pass, when the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD were come up out of the midst of Jordan, and the soles of the priests'feet were lifted up unto the dry land, that the waters of Jordanreturned unto their place, and flowed over all his banks,as they did before.19
And the people came up out of Jordan on the tenth day of the firstmonth, and encamped in Gilgal, in the eastborder of Jericho.
