Joshua Chapter 4
4:1 And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed over
Jordan, that the LORD spake unto Joshua, saying,
4:2 Take you twelve men out of the people, out of every tribe a man,
4:3 And command ye them, saying, Take you hence out of the midst of
Jordan, out of the place where the priests' feet stood firm, twelve
stones, and ye shall carry them over with you, and leave them in the
lodging place, where ye shall lodge this night.
4:4 Then Joshua called the twelve men, whom he had prepared of the
children of Israel, out of every tribe a man:
4:5 And Joshua said unto them, Pass over before the ark of the LORD your
God into the midst of Jordan, and take you up every man of you a stone
upon his shoulder, according unto the number of the tribes of the
children of Israel:
4:6 That this may be a sign among you, that when your children ask their
fathers in time to come, saying, What mean ye by these stones?
4:7 Then ye shall answer them, That the waters of Jordan were cut off
before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it passed over Jordan,
the waters of Jordan were cut off: and these stones shall be for a
memorial unto the children of Israel for ever.
4:8 And the children of Israel did so as Joshua commanded, and took up
twelve stones out of the midst of Jordan, as the LORD spake unto Joshua,
according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, and
carried them over with them unto the place where they lodged, and laid
them down there.
4:9 And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of Jordan, in the place
where the feet of the priests which bare the ark of the covenant stood:
and they are there unto this day.
4:10 For the priests which bare the ark stood in the midst of Jordan,
until everything was finished that the LORD commanded Joshua to speak
unto the people, according to all that Moses commanded Joshua: and the
people hasted and passed over.
4:11 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.
4:12 And the children of Reuben, and the children of Gad, and half the
tribe of Manasseh, passed over armed before the children of Israel, as
Moses spake unto them:
4:13 About forty thousand prepared for war passed over before the LORD
unto battle, to the plains of Jericho.
4:14 On that day the LORD magnified Joshua in the sight of all Israel;
and they feared him, as they feared Moses, all the days of his life.
4:15 And the LORD spake unto Joshua, saying,
4:16 Command the priests that bear the ark of the testimony, that they
come up out of Jordan.
4:17 Joshua therefore commanded the priests, saying, Come ye up out of
4:18 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 Jordan returned unto their place, and flowed over all his
banks, as they did before.
4:19 And the people came up out of Jordan on the tenth day of the first
month, and encamped in Gilgal, in the east border of Jericho.
4:20 And those twelve stones, which they took out of Jordan, did Joshua
pitch in Gilgal.
4:21 And he spake unto the children of Israel, saying, When your
children shall ask their fathers in time to come, saying, What mean
4:22 Then ye shall let your children know, saying, Israel came over this
Jordan on dry land.
4:23 For the LORD your God dried up the waters of Jordan from before
you, until ye were passed over, as the LORD your God did to the Red sea,
which he dried up from before us, until we were gone over:
4:24 That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the LORD,
that it is mighty: that ye might fear the LORD your God for ever.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
