Joshua 3

3:1 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.
3:2 And it came to pass after three days, that the officers went
 through the host;
3:3 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.
3:4 Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two
 thousand cubits by measure: come not near to it, that ye may
 know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed [this]
 way heretofore.
3:5 And Joshua said to the people, Sanctify yourselves: for
 to-morrow the LORD will do wonders among you.
3:6 And Joshua spoke to 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.
3:7 And the LORD said to 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.
3:8 And thou shalt command the priests that bear the ark of the
 covenant, saying, When ye have come to the brink of the water
 of Jordan, ye shall stand still in Jordan.
3:9 And Joshua said to the children of Israel, Come hither, and
 hear the words of the LORD your God.
3:10 And Joshua said, By this 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.
3:11 Behold, the ark of the covenant of the LORD of all the
 earth passeth over before you into Jordan.
3:12 Now therefore take you twelve men out of the tribes of
 Israel, out of every tribe a man.
3:13 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 in a heap.
3:14 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;
3:15 And as they that bore the ark had come to Jordan, and the
 feet of the priests that bore the ark were dipped in the brim
 of the water, (for Jordan overfloweth all its banks all the
 time of harvest,)
3:16 That the waters which came down from above stood [and] rose
 up in a heap very far from the city Adam, that [is] beside
 Zaretan; and those that came down towards the sea of the plain,
 [even] the salt sea, failed, [and] were cut off: and the people
 passed over right against Jericho.
3:17 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
 had passed quite over Jordan.
