And, when they came into the circles of the Jordan, which were in the land of Canaan, - then did the sons of Reuben and the sons of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh build there an altar by the Jordan, an altar of large dimensions,
So Jacob rose early in the morning, and took the stone which he halt lint for his pillow, and put it for a pillar, - and poured out oil upon the top thereof;
Then said Jacob to his brethren - Gather stones. And they took stones and made a heap, - and they did eat there, by the heap.
and Joshua said unto them: Pass ye over, before the ark of Yahweh your God, into the midst of the Jordan, - and lift ye up, each man one stone upon his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Israel:
seeing that, a boundary, hath Yahweh put between us and you, ye sons of Reuben and ye sons of Gad - even the Jordan, ye have no portion in Yahweh, - so might your sons cause our sons, to cease from revering Yahweh.
And Joshua wrote these words in the scroll of the law of God, - and took a great stone, and set it up there, under the oak that was by the sanctuary of Yahweh.
