RF JOS 4:1 But when all the forces had finished passing the Jordan, then the EVER-LIVING said to Joshua;
RF JOS 4:2 "Select for yourself from the People twelve men, a man from each Tribe,
RF JOS 4:3 and order them to take from the bed of the Jordan, from where the feet of the priests stand, twelve stones, and carry them over with you, and place them at the lodgment where you will lodge to-night."
RF JOS 4:4 Twelve Stones taken from the Bed of the Jordan for a monument.
Joshua consequently summoned twelve men, men whom he appointed from the sons of Israel, a man from every tribe, and Joshua said to them;
RF JOS 4:5 "Pass after the Ark of your EVER-LIVING GOD to the middle of the Jordan, and let each man lift a stone upon his shoulder, as a record to the Tribes of the sons of Israel,
RF JOS 4:6 so that they may be an evidence in the midst of you when your children shall ask you in the future, 'What are these stones to us?'
RF JOS 4:7 that you can say, 'The waters of the Jordan were divided before the Ark of the Covenant of the EVER-LIVING. When it passed into the torrent, the waters of the Jordan were divided, and these stones are as a memorial to the children of Israel for ever."
RF JOS 4:8 The children of Israel, therefore, did as Joshua commanded, and carried twelve stones from the middle of the Jordan as the EVER-LIVING commanded to Joshua, to the number of the Tribes of the sons of Israel, and they carried them to the lodgment, and fixed them there.
RF JOS 4:9 And Joshua set up the twelve stones from the middle of the Jordan, where the feet of the priests had stood who carried the Ark of the Covenant.1
RF JOS 4:10 But the priests who carried the Ark stood still in the middle of the Jordan until the accomplishment of all the things that the EVER-LIVING commanded Joshua to instruct the people to do, exactly as Moses had commanded Joshua. Then the forces hastened and passed over.
RF JOS 4:11 When, however, the whole of the forces had finished crossing, then the Ark of the EVER-LIVING and the priests passed in the presence of the forces.
RF JOS 4:12 But the heroes of the sons of Reuben, and the sons of Gad, and the half tribe of Manasseh, preceded the children of Israel, as GOD had commanded Moses.
RF JOS 4:13 Their army of forty thousand armed men passed before the EVER-LIVING to the war, by the fords of Jeriko.
RF JOS 4:14 On that day the EVER-LIVING made Joshua great in the eyes of all Israel, and they feared him, as they had feared Moses all his life.
RF JOS 4:15 Then the EVER-LIVING spoke to Joshua, saying;
RF JOS 4:16 "Order the priests who carried the Ark into the ford to come up from the Jordan."
RF JOS 4:17 So Joshua ordered the priests; "Come up from the Jordan."
RF JOS 4:18 And when the priests who carried the Ark of the Covenant of the EVER-LIVING ascended from the middle of the Jordanwhen the soles of the feet of the priests touched the dry land,—then the waters of the torrent returned from above and went as formerly over all its banks!
RF JOS 4:19 (B.C. 1451.) Thus the forces ascended from the Jordan on the tenth of the first month, and encamped in Gilgal to the east of Jeriko;
RF JOS 4:20 and the twelve stones that were taken from the Jordan Joshua erected in Gilgal,
RF JOS 4:21 and spoke to the sons of Israel saying; "When your children ask you hereafter enquiring, 'What are these stones?'
RF JOS 4:22 you shall inform your children that they are a memorial that the Jordan was dried up at the passage of the sons of Israel,
RF JOS 4:23 when our EVER-LIVING GOD caused the water of the torrent to dry before us until we crossed, as our EVER-LIVING GOD did to the Red Sea, which He caused to dry up before us until we had crossed over,
RF JOS 4:24 so that all the Peoples of the country might learn how strong the hand of the LORD is; so that they might fear our EVER-LIVING God at all times."
V 9 "And they are there to this day "is an editor's note, probably by Ezra.—F.F.


AKJV ROM 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
