The Israelites Make A Memorial

1 And it came to pass, when all the nation had made an end of passing over the Jordan, that Yahweh slake unto Joshua, saying: 2 Take unto you, from among the people, twelve men, one man severally from each tribe; 3 and command ye them, saying, Take you up from hence, out of the midst of the Jordan, from the place where stood the feet of the priests with firm footing, twelve stones; - and carry them over with you, and lay them down in the lodging-place where ye shall lodge, tonight.
