NCV 1 After all the people had finished crossing the Jordan, the Lord said to Joshua, NIV 1 When the whole nation had finished crossing the Jordan, the LORD said to Joshua, NCV 2 "Choose twelve men from among the people, one from each tribe. NIV 2 “Choose twelve men from among the people, one from each tribe, NCV 3 Tell them to get twelve rocks from the middle of the river, from where the priests stood. Carry the rocks and put them down where you stay tonight." NIV 3 and tell them to take up twelve stones from the middle of the Jordan, from right where the priests are standing, and carry them over with you and put them down at the place where you stay tonight.” NCV 4 So Joshua chose one man from each tribe. Then he called the twelve men together NIV 4 So Joshua called together the twelve men he had appointed from the Israelites, one from each tribe, NCV 5 and said to them, "Go out into the river where the Ark of the Lord your God is. Each of you bring back one rock, one for each tribe of Israel, and carry it on your shoulder. NIV 5 and said to them, “Go over before the ark of the LORD your God into the middle of the Jordan. Each of you is to take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the Israelites, NCV 6 They will be a sign among you. In the future your children will ask you, 'What do these rocks mean?' NIV 6 to serve as a sign among you. In the future, when your children ask you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ NCV 7 Tell them the water stopped flowing in the Jordan when the Ark of the Agreement with the Lord crossed the river. These rocks will always remind the Israelites of this." NIV 7 tell them that the flow of the Jordan was cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD. When it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. These stones are to be a memorial to the people of Israel forever.” NCV 8 So the Israelites obeyed Joshua and carried twelve rocks from the middle of the Jordan River, one rock for each of the twelve tribes of Israel, just as the Lord had commanded Joshua. They carried the rocks with them and put them down where they made their camp. NIV 8 So the Israelites did as Joshua commanded them. They took twelve stones from the middle of the Jordan, according to the number of the tribes of the Israelites, as the LORD had told Joshua; and they carried them over with them to their camp, where they put them down. NCV 9 Joshua also put twelve rocks in the middle of the Jordan River where the priests had stood while carrying the Ark of the Agreement. These rocks are still there today. NIV 9 Joshua set up the twelve stones that had been in the middle of the Jordan at the spot where the priests who carried the ark of the covenant had stood. And they are there to this day. NCV 10 The priests carrying the Ark continued standing in the middle of the river until everything was done that the Lord had commanded Joshua to tell the people, just as Moses had told Joshua. The people hurried across the river. NIV 10 Now the priests who carried the ark remained standing in the middle of the Jordan until everything the LORD had commanded Joshua was done by the people, just as Moses had directed Joshua. The people hurried over, NCV 11 After they finished crossing the river, the priests carried the Ark of the Lord to the other side as the people watched. NIV 11 and as soon as all of them had crossed, the ark of the LORD and the priests came to the other side while the people watched. NCV 12 The men from the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and East Manasseh obeyed what Moses had told them. They were dressed for war, and they crossed the river ahead of the other people. NIV 12 The men of Reuben, Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh crossed over, ready for battle, in front of the Israelites, as Moses had directed them. NCV 13 About forty thousand soldiers prepared for war passed before the Lord as they marched across the river, going toward the plains of Jericho. NIV 13 About forty thousand armed for battle crossed over before the LORD to the plains of Jericho for war. NCV 14 That day the Lord made Joshua great in the opinion of all the Israelites. They respected Joshua all his life, just as they had respected Moses. NIV 14 That day the LORD exalted Joshua in the sight of all Israel; and they stood in awe of him all the days of his life, just as they had stood in awe of Moses. NCV 15 Then the Lord said to Joshua, NIV 15 Then the LORD said to Joshua, NCV 16 "Command the priests to bring the Ark of the Agreement out of the river." NIV 16 “Command the priests carrying the ark of the covenant law to come up out of the Jordan.” NCV 17 So Joshua commanded the priests, "Come up out of the Jordan." NIV 17 So Joshua commanded the priests, “Come up out of the Jordan.” NCV 18 Then the priests carried the Ark of the Agreement with the Lord out of the river. As soon as their feet touched dry land, the water began flowing again. The river again overflowed its banks, just as it had before they crossed. NIV 18 And the priests came up out of the river carrying the ark of the covenant of the LORD. No sooner had they set their feet on the dry ground than the waters of the Jordan returned to their place and ran at flood stage as before. NCV 19 The people crossed the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month and camped at Gilgal, east of Jericho. NIV 19 On the tenth day of the first month the people went up from the Jordan and camped at Gilgal on the eastern border of Jericho. NCV 20 They carried with them the twelve rocks taken from the Jordan, and Joshua set them up at Gilgal. NIV 20 And Joshua set up at Gilgal the twelve stones they had taken out of the Jordan. NCV 21 Then he spoke to the Israelites: "In the future your children will ask you, 'What do these rocks mean?' NIV 21 He said to the Israelites, “In the future when your descendants ask their parents, ‘What do these stones mean?’ NCV 22 Tell them, 'Israel crossed the Jordan River on dry land. NIV 22 tell them, ‘Israel crossed the Jordan on dry ground.’ NCV 23 The Lord your God caused the water to stop flowing until you finished crossing it, just as the Lord did to the Red Sea. He stopped the water until we crossed it. NIV 23 For the LORD your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. The LORD your God did to the Jordan what he had done to the Red Sea when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over. NCV 24 The Lord did this so all people would know he has great power and so you would always respect the Lord your God.'" NIV 24 He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the LORD is powerful and so that you might always fear the LORD your God.”
