Joshua 3

Joshua cometh to Jordan.

Joshua 3:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Joshua rose early in the morning; and they removed from Shittim, and came to Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and lodged there before they passed over.

The officers instruct the people for the passage.

Joshua 3:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And it came to pass after three days, that the officers went through the host; Joshua 3:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And they commanded the people, saying, When ye see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests the Levites bearing it, then ye shall remove from your place, and go after it. Joshua 3:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed [this] way heretofore. Joshua 3:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you. Joshua 3:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Joshua spoke unto the priests, saying, Take up the ark of the covenant, and pass over before the people. And they took up the ark of the covenant, and went before the people.

The LORD encourageth Joshua.

Joshua 3:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to magnify thee in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, [so] I will be with thee. Joshua 3:8 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And thou shalt command the priests that bear the ark of the covenant, saying, When ye are come to the brink of the water of Jordan, ye shall stand still in Jordan.

Joshua encourageth the people.

Joshua 3:9 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, Come hither, and hear the words of the LORD your God. Joshua 3:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Joshua said, Hereby ye shall know that the living God [is] among you, and [that] he will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites. Joshua 3:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth passeth over before you into Jordan. Joshua 3:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Now therefore take you twelve men out of the tribes of Israel, out of every tribe a man. Joshua 3:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, [that] the waters of Jordan shall be cut off [from] the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon a heap.

The waters of Jordan are divided.

Joshua 3:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And it came to pass, when the people removed from their tents, to pass over Jordan, and the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people; Joshua 3:15 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And as they that bore the ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that bore the ark were dipped in the brim of the water, (for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest,) Joshua 3:16 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} That the waters which came down from above stood [and] rose up upon a heap very far from the city Adam, that [is] beside Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain, [even] the salt sea, failed, [and] were cut off: and the people passed over right against Jericho. Joshua 3:17 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the priests that bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed clean over Jordan.
