\\INTRODUCTION TO JOSHUA 4\\

This chapter relates an order, that is men, should take twelve stones
out of the midst of Jordan, and carry them to the first place they
lodged at as a memorial of their passage over it, \\#Jos 4:1-8\\; and how
Joshua set up twelve other stones in the river itself, \\#Jos 4:9\\; and
how many of the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and Manasseh, went before the
Israelites when they passed over, \\#Jos 4:10-14\\; which being done, the
priests were ordered to come out of Jordan, when the waters returned to
their place, \\#Jos 4:15-18\\; The time when this miracle was wrought is
observed, \\#Jos 4:19\\; and an account is given of Joshua's pitching the
twelve stones taken out of Jordan in Gilgal, and the use they were to
be of in future time, \\#Jos 4:20-24\\.
