1Καὶ ἐπεὶ συνετέλεσεν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς διαβαίνων τὸν Ιορδάνην, καὶ εἶπεν κύριος τῷ Ἰησοῖ λέγων And when the people had completely passed over Jordan, the Lord spoke to Joshua, saying,  When all the nation had finished passing over the Jordan, the LORD said to Joshua, וַיְהִי כַּאֲשֶׁר־תַּמּוּ כָל־הַגֹּוי לַעֲבֹור אֶת־הַיַּרְדֵּן ף וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל־יְהֹושֻׁעַ לֵאמֹר׃ 1
2Παραλαβὼν ἄνδρας ἀπὸ τοῦ λαοῦ, ἕνα ἀφ' ἑκάστης φυλῆς, Take men from the people, one of each tribe,  "Take twelve men from the people, from each tribe a man, קְחוּ לָכֶם מִן־הָעָם שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר אֲנָשִׁים אִישׁ־אֶחָד אִישׁ־אֶחָד מִשָּׁבֶט׃ 2
3σύνταξον αὐτοῖς λέγων Ἀνέλεσθε ἐκ μέσου τοῦ Ιορδάνου ἑτοίμους δώδεκα λίθους καὶ τούτους διακομίσαντες ἅμα ὑμῖν αὐτοῖς θέτε αὐτοὺς ἐν τῇ στρατοπεδείᾳ ὑμῶν, οὗ ἐὰν παρεμβάλητε ἐκεῖ τὴν νύκτα. and charge them; and you shall take out of the midst of Jordan twelve fit stones, and having carried them across together with yourselves, place them in your camp, where you shall encamp for the night.  and command them, 'Take twelve stones from here out of the midst of the Jordan, from the very place where the priests' feet stood, and carry them over with you, and lay them down in the place where you lodge tonight.'" וְצַוּוּ אֹותָם לֵאמֹר שְׂאוּ־לָכֶם מִזֶּה מִתֹּוךְ הַיַּרְדֵּן מִמַּצַּב רַגְלֵי הַכֹּהֲנִים הָכִין שְׁתֵּים־עֶשְׂרֵה אֲבָנִים וְהַעֲבַרְתֶּם אֹותָם עִםָּכֶם וְהִנַּחְתֶּם אֹותָם בַּמָּלֹון אֲשֶׁר־תָּלִינוּ בֹו הַלָּיְלָה׃ ס 3
4καὶ ἀνακαλεσάμενος Ἰησοῦς δώδεκα ἄνδρας τῶν ἐνδόξων ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ, ἕνα ἀφ' ἑκάστης φυλῆς, and Joshua having called twelve men of distinction among the children of Israel, one of each tribe,  Then Joshua called the twelve men from the people of Israel, whom he had appointed, a man from each tribe; וַיִּקְרָא יְהֹושֻׁעַ אֶל־שְׁנֵים הֶעָשָׂר אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר הֵכִין מִבְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל אִישׁ־אֶחָד אִישׁ־אֶחָד מִשָּׁבֶט׃ 4
5εἶπεν αὐτοῖς Προσαγάγετε ἔμπροσθέν μου πρὸ προσώπου κυρίου εἰς μέσον τοῦ Ιορδάνου, καὶ ἀνελόμενος ἐκεῖθεν ἕκαστος λίθον ἀράτω ἐπὶ τῶν ὤμων αὐτοῦ κατὰ τὸν ἀριθμὸν τῶν δώδεκα φυλῶν τοῦ Ισραηλ, said to them, Advance before me in the presence of the Lord into the midst of Jordan, and each having taken up a stone from thence, let him carry it on his shoulders, according to the number of the twelve tribes of Israel:  and Joshua said to them, "Pass on before the ark of the LORD your God into the midst of the Jordan, and take up each of you a stone upon his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the people of Israel, וַיֹּאמֶר לָהֶם יְהֹושֻׁעַ עִבְרוּ לִפְנֵי אֲרֹון יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם אֶל־תֹּוךְ הַיַּרְדֵּן וְהָרִימוּ לָכֶם אִישׁ אֶבֶן אַחַת עַל־שִׁכְמֹו לְמִסְפַּר שִׁבְטֵי בְנֵי־יִשְׂרָאֵל׃ 5
6ἵνα ὑπάρχωσιν ὑμῖν οὗτοι εἰς σημεῖον κείμενον διὰ παντός, ἵνα ὅταν ἐρωτᾷ σε ὁ υἱός σου αὔριον λέγων Τί εἰσιν οἱ λίθοι οὗτοι ὑμῖν; that these may be to you continually for an appointed sign, that when your son asks you in future, saying, What are these stones to us?  that this may be a sign among you, when your children ask in time to come, 'What do those stones mean to you?' לְמַעַן תִּהְיֶה זֹאת אֹות בְּקִרְבְּכֶם כִּי־יִשְׁאָלוּן בְּנֵיכֶם מָחָר לֵאמֹר מָה הָאֲבָנִים הָאֵלֶּה לָכֶם׃ 6
7καὶ σὺ δηλώσεις τῷ υἱῷ σου λέγων Ὅτι ἐξέλιπεν ὁ Ιορδάνης ποταμὸς ἀπὸ προσώπου κιβωτοῦ διαθήκης κυρίου πάσης τῆς γῆς, ὡς διέβαινεν αὐτόν· καὶ ἔσονται οἱ λίθοι οὗτοι ὑμῖν μνημόσυνον τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ ἕως τοῦ αἰῶνος. then you may explain to your son, saying, The river Jordan was dried up from before the ark of the covenant of the Lord of the whole earth, when it passed it: and these stones shall be for a memorial for you for the children of Israel for ever.  Then you shall tell them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it passed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. So these stones shall be to the people of Israel a memorial for ever." וַאֲמַרְתֶּם לָהֶם אֲשֶׁר נִכְרְתוּ מֵימֵי הַיַּרְדֵּן מִפְּנֵי אֲרֹון בְּרִית־יְהוָה בְּעָבְרֹו בַּיַּרְדֵּן נִכְרְתוּ מֵי הַיַּרְדֵּן וְהָיוּ הָאֲבָנִים הָאֵלֶּה לְזִכָּרֹון לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל עַד־עֹולָם׃ 7
8καὶ ἐποίησαν οὕτως οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ, καθότι ἐνετείλατο κύριος τῷ Ἰησοῖ, καὶ λαβόντες δώδεκα λίθους ἐκ μέσου τοῦ Ιορδάνου, καθάπερ συνέταξεν κύριος τῷ Ἰησοῖ ἐν τῇ συντελείᾳ τῆς διαβάσεως τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ, καὶ διεκόμισαν ἅμα ἑαυτοῖς εἰς τὴν παρεμβολὴν καὶ ἀπέθηκαν ἐκεῖ. And the children of Israel did so, as the Lord commanded Joshua; and they took up twelve stones out of the midst of Jordan, (as the Lord commanded Joshua, when the children of Israel had completely passed over,) and carried these stones with them into the camp, and laid them down there.  And the men of Israel did as Joshua commanded, and took up twelve stones out of the midst of the Jordan, according to the number of the tribes of the people of Israel, as the LORD told Joshua; and they carried them over with them to the place where they lodged, and laid them down there. וַיַּעֲשׂוּ־כֵן בְּנֵי־יִשְׂרָאֵל כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהֹושֻׁעַ וַיִּשְׂאוּ שְׁתֵּי־עֶשְׂרֵה אֲבָנִים מִתֹּוךְ הַיַּרְדֵּן כַּאֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר יְהוָה אֶל־יְהֹושֻׁעַ לְמִסְפַּר שִׁבְטֵי בְנֵי־יִשְׂרָאֵל וַיַּעֲבִרוּם עִםָּם אֶל־הַמָּלֹון וַיַּנִּחוּם שָׁם׃ 8
9ἔστησεν δὲ Ἰησοῦς καὶ ἄλλους δώδεκα λίθους ἐν αὐτῷ τῷ Ιορδάνῃ ἐν τῷ γενομένῳ τόπῳ ὑπὸ τοὺς πόδας τῶν ἱερέων τῶν αἰρόντων τὴν κιβωτὸν τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου, καί εἰσιν ἐκεῖ ἕως τῆς σήμερον ἡμέρας. And Joshua set also other twelve stones in Jordan itself, in the place that was under the feet of the priests that bore the ark of the covenant of the Lord; and there they are to this day.  And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of the Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests bearing the ark of the covenant had stood; and they are there to this day. וּשְׁתֵּים עֶשְׂרֵה אֲבָנִים הֵקִים יְהֹושֻׁעַ בְּתֹוךְ הַיַּרְדֵּן תַּחַת מַצַּב רַגְלֵי הַכֹּהֲנִים נֹשְׂאֵי אֲרֹון הַבְּרִית וַיִּהְיוּ שָׁם עַד הַיֹּום הַזֶּה׃ 9
10εἱστήκεισαν δὲ οἱ ἱερεῖς οἱ αἴροντες τὴν κιβωτὸν τῆς διαθήκης ἐν τῷ Ιορδάνῃ, ἕως οὗ συνετέλεσεν Ἰησοῦς πάντα, ἃ ἐνετείλατο κύριος ἀναγγεῖλαι τῷ λαῷ, καὶ ἔσπευσεν ὁ λαὸς καὶ διέβησαν. And the priests that bore the ark of the covenant stood in Jordan, until Joshua [had finished all that the Lord commanded him to report to the people; and the people hasted and passed over.  For the priests who bore the ark stood in the midst of the Jordan, until everything was finished that the LORD commanded Joshua to tell the people, according to all that Moses had commanded Joshua.

The people passed over in haste;

וְהַכֹּהֲנִים נֹשְׂאֵי הָאָרֹון עֹמְדִים בְּתֹוךְ הַיַּרְדֵּן עַד תֹּם כָּל־הַדָּבָר אֲשֶׁר־צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־יְהֹושֻׁעַ לְדַבֵּר אֶל־הָעָם כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר־צִוָּה מֹשֶׁה אֶת־יְהֹושֻׁעַ וַיְמַהֲרוּ הָעָם וַיַּעֲבֹרוּ׃ 10
11καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς συνετέλεσεν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς διαβῆναι, καὶ διέβη ἡ κιβωτὸς τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου, καὶ οἱ λίθοι ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῶν. And it came to pass when all the people had passed over, that the ark of the covenant of the Lord passed over, and the stones before them.  and when all the people had finished passing over, the ark of the LORD and the priests passed over before the people. וַיְהִי כַּאֲשֶׁר־תַּם כָּל־הָעָם לַעֲבֹור וַיַּעֲבֹר אֲרֹון־יְהוָה וְהַכֹּהֲנִים לִפְנֵי הָעָם׃ 11
12καὶ διέβησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ρουβην καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Γαδ καὶ οἱ ἡμίσεις φυλῆς Μανασση διεσκευασμένοι ἔμπροσθεν τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ, καθάπερ ἐνετείλατο αὐτοῖς Μωϋσῆς. And the sons of Ruben, and the sons of Gad, and the half tribe of Manasse passed over armed before the children of Israel, as Moses commanded them.  The sons of Reuben and the sons of Gad and the half-tribe of Manas'seh passed over armed before the people of Israel, as Moses had bidden them; וַיַּעַבְרוּ בְּנֵי־רְאוּבֵן וּבְנֵי־גָד וַחֲצִי שֵׁבֶט הַמְנַשֶּׁה חֲמֻשִׁים לִפְנֵי בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל כַּאֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר אֲלֵיהֶם מֹשֶׁה׃ 12
13τετρακισμύριοι εὔζωνοι εἰς μάχην διέβησαν ἐναντίον κυρίου εἰς πόλεμον πρὸς τὴν Ιεριχω πόλιν. Forty thousand armed for battle went over before the Lord to war, to the city of Jericho.  about forty thousand ready armed for war passed over before the LORD for battle, to the plains of Jericho. כְּאַרְבָּעִים אֶלֶף חֲלוּצֵי הַצָּבָא עָבְרוּ לִפְנֵי יְהוָה לַמִּלְחָמָה אֶל עַרְבֹות יְרִיחֹו׃ ס 13
14ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ηὔξησεν κύριος τὸν Ἰησοῦν ἐναντίον παντὸς τοῦ γένους Ισραηλ, καὶ ἐφοβοῦντο αὐτὸν ὥσπερ Μωυσῆν, ὅσον χρόνον ἔζη. In that day the Lord magnified Joshua before all the people of Israel; and they feared him, as [they did Moses, as long as he lived.  On that day the LORD exalted Joshua in the sight of all Israel; and they stood in awe of him, as they had stood in awe of Moses, all the days of his life. בַּיֹּום הַהוּא גִּדַּל יְהוָה אֶת־יְהֹושֻׁעַ בְּעֵינֵי כָּל־יִשְׂרָאֵל וַיִּרְאוּ אֹתֹו כַּאֲשֶׁר יָרְאוּ אֶת־מֹשֶׁה כָּל־יְמֵי חַיָּיו׃ ף 14
15Καὶ εἶπεν κύριος τῷ Ἰησοῖ λέγων And the Lord spoke to Joshua, saying,  And the LORD said to Joshua, וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל־יְהֹושֻׁעַ לֵאמֹר׃ 15
16Ἔντειλαι τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν τοῖς αἴρουσιν τὴν κιβωτὸν τῆς διαθήκης τοῦ μαρτυρίου κυρίου ἐκβῆναι ἐκ τοῦ Ιορδάνου. Charge the priests that bear the ark of the covenant of the testimony of the Lord, to go up out of Jordan.  "Command the priests who bear the ark of the testimony to come up out of the Jordan." צַוֵּה אֶת־הַכֹּהֲנִים נֹשְׂאֵי אֲרֹון הָעֵדוּת וְיַעֲלוּ מִן־הַיַּרְדֵּן׃ 16
17καὶ ἐνετείλατο Ἰησοῦς τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν λέγων Ἔκβητε ἐκ τοῦ Ιορδάνου. And Joshua charged the priests, saying, Go up out of Jordan.  JOSHUA therefore commanded the priests, "Come up out of the Jordan." וַיְצַו יְהֹושֻׁעַ אֶת־הַכֹּהֲנִים לֵאמֹר עֲלוּ מִן־הַיַּרְדֵּן׃ 17
18καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἐξέβησαν οἱ ἱερεῖς οἱ αἴροντες τὴν κιβωτὸν τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου ἐκ τοῦ Ιορδάνου καὶ ἔθηκαν τοὺς πόδας ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ὥρμησεν τὸ ὕδωρ τοῦ Ιορδάνου κατὰ χώραν καὶ ἐπορεύετο καθὰ ἐχθὲς καὶ τρίτην ἡμέραν δι' ὅλης τῆς κρηπῖδος. And it came to pass when the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the Lord were gone up out of Jordan, and set their feet upon the land, [that the water of Jordan returned impetuously to its place, and went as before over all its banks.  And when the priests bearing the ark of the covenant of the LORD came up from the midst of the Jordan, and the soles of the priests' feet were lifted up on dry ground, the waters of the Jordan returned to their place and overflowed all its banks, as before. וַיְהִי {כ= בַּעֲלֹות} {ק= כַּעֲלֹות} הַכֹּהֲנִים נֹשְׂאֵי אֲרֹון בְּרִית־יְהוָה מִתֹּוךְ הַיַּרְדֵּן נִתְּקוּ כַּפֹּות רַגְלֵי הַכֹּהֲנִים אֶל הֶחָרָבָה וַיָּשֻׁבוּ מֵי־הַיַּרְדֵּן לִמְקֹוםָם וַיֵּלְכוּ כִתְמֹול־שִׁלְשֹׁום עַל־כָּל־גְּדֹותָיו׃ 18
19καὶ ὁ λαὸς ἀνέβη ἐκ τοῦ Ιορδάνου δεκάτῃ τοῦ μηνὸς τοῦ πρώτου· καὶ κατεστρατοπέδευσαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἐν Γαλγαλοις κατὰ μέρος τὸ πρὸς ἡλίου ἀνατολὰς ἀπὸ τῆς Ιεριχω. And the people went up out of Jordan on the tenth day of the first month; and the children of Israel encamped in Galgala in the region eastward from Jericho.  The people came up out of the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month, and they encamped in Gilgal on the east border of Jericho. וְהָעָם עָלוּ מִן־הַיַּרְדֵּן בֶּעָשֹׂור לַחֹדֶשׁ הָרִאשֹׁון וַיַּחֲנוּ בַּגִּלְגָּל בִּקְצֵה מִזְרַח יְרִיחֹו׃ 19
20καὶ τοὺς δώδεκα λίθους τούτους, οὓς ἔλαβεν ἐκ τοῦ Ιορδάνου, ἔστησεν Ἰησοῦς ἐν Γαλγαλοις And Joshua set these twelve stones which he took out of Jordan, in Galgala,  And those twelve stones, which they took out of the Jordan, Joshua set up in Gilgal. וְאֵת שְׁתֵּים עֶשְׂרֵה הָאֲבָנִים הָאֵלֶּה אֲשֶׁר לָקְחוּ מִן־הַיַּרְדֵּן הֵקִים יְהֹושֻׁעַ בַּגִּלְגָּל׃ 20
21λέγων Ὅταν ἐρωτῶσιν ὑμᾶς οἱ υἱοὶ ὑμῶν λέγοντες Τί εἰσιν οἱ λίθοι οὗτοι; saying, When your sons ask you, saying, What are these stones?  And he said to the people of Israel, "When your children ask their fathers in time to come, 'What do these stones mean?' וַיֹּאמֶר אֶל־בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לֵאמֹר אֲשֶׁר יִשְׁאָלוּן בְּנֵיכֶם מָחָר אֶת־אֲבֹותָם לֵאמֹר מָה הָאֲבָנִים הָאֵלֶּה׃ 21
22ἀναγγείλατε τοῖς υἱοῖς ὑμῶν ὅτι Ἑπὶ ξηρᾶς διέβη Ισραηλ τὸν Ιορδάνην Tell your sons, that Israel went over this Jordan on dry land,  then you shall let your children know, 'Israel passed over this Jordan on dry ground.' וְהֹודַעְתֶּם אֶת־בְּנֵיכֶם לֵאמֹר בַּיַּבָּשָׁה עָבַר יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶת־הַיַּרְדֵּן הַזֶּה׃ 22
23ἀποξηράναντος κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ἡμῶν τὸ ὕδωρ τοῦ Ιορδάνου ἐκ τοῦ ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῶν μέχρι οὗ διέβησαν, καθάπερ ἐποίησεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν τὴν ἐρυθρὰν θάλασσαν, ἣν ἀπεξήρανεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν ἔμπροσθεν ἡμῶν ἕως παρήλθομεν, when the Lord our God had dried up the water of Jordan from before them, until they had passed over; as the Lord our God did to the Red Sea, which the Lord our God dried up from before us, until we passed over.  For the LORD your God dried up the waters of the Jordan for you until you passed over, as the LORD your God did to the Red Sea, which he dried up for us until we passed over, אֲשֶׁר־הֹובִישׁ יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם אֶת־מֵי הַיַּרְדֵּן מִפְּנֵיכֶם עַד־עָבְרְכֶם כַּאֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם לְיַם־סוּף אֲשֶׁר־הֹובִישׁ מִפָּנֵינוּ עַד־עָבְרֵנוּ׃ 23
24ὅπως γνῶσιν πάντα τὰ ἔθνη τῆς γῆς ὅτι ἡ δύναμις τοῦ κυρίου ἰσχυρά ἐστιν, καὶ ἵνα ὑμεῖς σέβησθε κύριον τὸν θεὸν ὑμῶν ἐν παντὶ χρόνῳ. That all the nations of the earth might know, that the power of the Lord is mighty, and that you might worship the Lord our God in every work.  so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of the LORD is mighty; that you may fear the LORD your God for ever." לְמַעַן דַּעַת כָּל־עַמֵּי הָאָרֶץ אֶת־יַד יְהוָה כִּי חֲזָקָה הִיא לְמַעַן יְרָאתֶם אֶת־יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם כָּל־הַיָּמִים׃ ס 24
