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\\.
