Joshua 3 Text (WEB)
  1. Joshua rose up early in the morning; and they moved from Shittim, and came to the Jordan, he and all the children of Israel. They lodged there before they passed over.
  2. It happened after three days, that the officers went through the midst of the camp;
  3. and they commanded the people, saying, "When you see the ark of the covenant of Yahweh your God, and the priests the Levites bearing it, then you shall move from your place, and follow it.
  4. Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure. Don't come near to it, that you may know the way by which you must go; for you have not passed this way before."
  5. Joshua said to the people, "Sanctify yourselves; for tomorrow Yahweh will do wonders among you."
  6. Joshua spoke to the priests, saying, "Take up the ark of the covenant, and pass over before the people." They took up the ark of the covenant, and went before the people.
  7. Yahweh said to Joshua, "Today I will begin to magnify you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that as I was with Moses, so I will be with you.
  8. You shall command the priests who bear the ark of the covenant, saying, 'When you come to the brink of the waters of the Jordan, you shall stand still in the Jordan.'"
  9. Joshua said to the children of Israel, "Come here, and hear the words of Yahweh your God."
  10. Joshua said, "Hereby you shall know that the living God is among you, and that he will without fail drive the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Hivite, and the Perizzite, and the Girgashite, and the Amorite, and the Jebusite out from before you.
  11. Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth passes over before you into the Jordan.
  12. Now therefore take twelve men out of the tribes of Israel, for every tribe a man.
  13. It shall come to pass, when the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of Yahweh, the Lord of all the earth, rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the waters of the Jordan will be cut off, even the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand in one heap."
  14. It happened, when the people moved from their tents to pass over the Jordan, the priests who bore the ark of the covenant being before the people,
  15. and when those who bore the ark had come to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark had dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks all the time of harvest),
  16. that the waters which came down from above stood, and rose up in one heap, a great way off, at Adam, the city that is beside Zarethan; and those that went down toward the sea of the Arabah, even the Salt Sea, were wholly cut off. Then the people passed over right against Jericho.
  17. The priests who bore the ark of the covenant of Yahweh stood firm on dry ground in the middle of the Jordan; and all Israel passed over on dry ground, until all the nation had passed completely over the Jordan.
Joshua 3 Text (Hebrew)
  1. וישכם יהושע בבקר ויסעו מהשטים ויבאו עד־הירדן הוא וכל־בני ישראל וילנו שם טרם יעברו׃
  2. ויהי מקצה שלשת ימים ויעברו השטרים בקרב המחנה׃
  3. ויצוו את־העם לאמר כראותכם את ארון ברית־יהוה אלהיכם והכהנים הלוים נשאים אתו ואתם תסעו ממקוםכם והלכתם אחריו׃
  4. אך רחוק יהיה ביניכם כאלפים אמה במדה אל־תקרבו אליו למען אשר־תדעו את־הדרך אשר תלכו־בה כי לא עברתם בדרך מתמול שלשום׃ ס
  5. ויאמר יהושע אל־העם התקדשו כי מחר יעשה יהוה בקרבכם נפלאות׃
  6. ויאמר יהושע אל־הכהנים לאמר שאו את־ארון הברית ועברו לפני העם וישאו את־ארון הברית וילכו לפני העם׃ ס
  7. ויאמר יהוה אל־יהושע היום הזה אחל גדלך בעיני כל־ישראל אשר ידעון כי כאשר הייתי עם־משה אהיה עמך׃
  8. ואתה תצוה את־הכהנים נשאי ארון־הברית לאמר כבאכם עד־קצה מי הירדן בירדן תעמדו׃ ף
  9. ויאמר יהושע אל־בני ישראל גשו הנה ושמעו את־דברי יהוה אלהיכם׃
  10. ויאמר יהושע בזאת תדעון כי אל חי בקרבכם והורש יוריש מפניכם את־הכנעני ואת־החתי ואת־החוי ואת־הפרזי ואת־הגרגשי והאמרי והיבוסי׃
  11. הנה ארון הברית אדון כל־הארץ עבר לפניכם בירדן׃
  12. ועתה קחו לכם שני עשר איש משבטי ישראל איש־אחד איש־אחד לשבט׃
  13. והיה כנוח כפות רגלי הכהנים נשאי ארון יהוה אדון כל־הארץ במי הירדן מי הירדן יכרתון המים הירדים מלמעלה ויעמדו נד אחד׃
  14. ויהי בנסע העם מאהליהם לעבר את־הירדן והכהנים נשאי הארון הברית לפני העם׃
  15. וכבוא נשאי הארון עד־הירדן ורגלי הכהנים נשאי הארון נטבלו בקצה המים והירדן מלא על־כל־גדותיו כל ימי קציר׃
  16. ויעמדו המים הירדים מלמעלה קמו נד־אחד הרחק מאד העיר אשר מצד צרתן והירדים על ים הערבה ים־המלח תמו נכרתו והעם עברו נגד יריחו׃
  17. ויעמדו הכהנים נשאי הארון ברית־יהוה בחרבה בתוך הירדן הכן וכל־ישראל עברים בחרבה עד אשר־תמו כל־הגוי לעבר את־הירדן׃
Joshua 3 Text (Greek)
  1. και ωρθρισεν ιησους το πρωι και απηραν εκ σαττιν και ηλθοσαν εως του ιορδανου και κατελυσαν εκει προ του
  2. και εγενετο μετα τρεις ημερας διηλθον οι γραμματεις δια της
  3. και ενετειλαντο τω λαω λεγοντες οταν ιδητε την κιβωτον της διαθηκης κυριου του θεου ημων και τους ιερεις ημων και τους λευιτας αιροντας αυτην απαρειτε απο των τοπων υμων και πορευεσθε οπισω
  4. αλλα μακραν εστω ανα μεσον υμων και εκεινης οσον δισχιλιους πηχεις στησεσθε μη προσεγγισητε αυτη ιν' επιστησθε την οδον ην πορευεσθε αυτην ου γαρ πεπορευσθε την οδον απ' εχθες και τριτης
  5. και ειπεν ιησους τω λαω αγνισασθε εις αυριον οτι αυριον ποιησει εν υμιν κυριος
  6. και ειπεν ιησους τοις ιερευσιν αρατε την κιβωτον της διαθηκης κυριου και προπορευεσθε του λαου και ηραν οι ιερεις την κιβωτον της διαθηκης κυριου και επορευοντο εμπροσθεν του
  7. και ειπεν κυριος προς ιησουν εν τη ημερα ταυτη αρχομαι υψωσαι σε κατενωπιον παντων υιων ισραηλ ινα γνωσιν καθοτι ημην μετα μωυση ουτως εσομαι και μετα
  8. και νυν εντειλαι τοις ιερευσιν τοις αιρουσιν την κιβωτον της διαθηκης λεγων ως αν εισελθητε επι μερους του υδατος του ιορδανου και εν τω ιορδανη
  9. και ειπεν ιησους τοις υιοις ισραηλ προσαγαγετε ωδε και ακουσατε το ρημα κυριου του θεου
  10. εν τουτω γνωσεσθε οτι θεος ζων εν υμιν και ολεθρευων ολεθρευσει απο προσωπου ημων τον χαναναιον και τον χετταιον και τον φερεζαιον και τον ευαιον και τον αμορραιον και τον γεργεσαιον και τον
  11. ιδου η κιβωτος διαθηκης κυριου πασης της γης διαβαινει τον
  12. προχειρισασθε υμιν δωδεκα ανδρας απο των υιων ισραηλ ενα αφ' εκαστης
  13. και εσται ως αν καταπαυσωσιν οι ποδες των ιερεων των αιροντων την κιβωτον της διαθηκης κυριου πασης της γης εν τω υδατι του ιορδανου το υδωρ του ιορδανου εκλειψει το δε υδωρ το καταβαινον
  14. και απηρεν ο λαος εκ των σκηνωματων αυτων διαβηναι τον ιορδανην οι δε ιερεις ηροσαν την κιβωτον της διαθηκης κυριου προτεροι του
  15. ως δε εισεπορευοντο οι ιερεις οι αιροντες την κιβωτον της διαθηκης επι τον ιορδανην και οι ποδες των ιερεων των αιροντων την κιβωτον της διαθηκης κυριου εβαφησαν εις μερος του υδατος του ιορδανου ο δε ιορδανης επληρου καθ' ολην την κρηπιδα αυτου ωσει ημεραι θερισμου
  16. και εστη τα υδατα τα καταβαινοντα ανωθεν εστη πηγμα εν αφεστηκος μακραν σφοδρα σφοδρως εως μερους καριαθιαριμ το δε καταβαινον κατεβη εις την θαλασσαν αραβα θαλασσαν αλος εως εις το τελος εξελιπεν και ο λαος ειστηκει απεναντι
  17. και εστησαν οι ιερεις οι αιροντες την κιβωτον της διαθηκης κυριου επι ξηρας εν μεσω του ιορδανου και παντες οι υιοι ισραηλ διεβαινον δια ξηρας εως συνετελεσεν πας ο λαος διαβαινων τον
Joshua 3 Text (Latin)
  1. Igitur Josue de nocte consurgens movit castra : egredientesque de Setim, venerunt ad Jordanem ipse et omnes filii Israël, et morati sunt ibi tres dies.
  2. Quibus evolutis transierunt præcones per castrorum medium,
  3. et clamare cœperunt : Quando videritis arcam fœderis Domini Dei vestri, et sacerdotes stirpis Leviticæ portantes eam, vos quoque consurgite, et sequimini præcedentes :
  4. sitque inter vos et arcam spatium cubitorum duum millium : ut procul videre possitis, et nosse per quam viam ingrediamini : quia prius non ambulastis per eam : et cavete ne appropinquetis ad arcam.
  5. Dixitque Josue ad populum : Sanctificamini : cras enim faciet Dominus inter vos mirabilia.
  6. Et ait ad sacerdotes : Tollite arcam fœderis, et præcedite populum. Qui jussa complentes, tulerunt, et ambulaverunt ante eos.
  7. Dixitque Dominus ad Josue : Hodie incipiam exaltare te coram omni Israël : ut sciant quod sicut cum Moyse fui, ita et tecum sim.
  8. Tu autem præcipe sacerdotibus, qui portant arcam fœderis, et dic eis : Cum ingressi fueritis partem aquæ Jordanis, state in ea.
  9. Dixitque Josue ad filios Israël : Accedite huc, et audite verbum Domini Dei vestri.
  10. Et rursum : In hoc, inquit, scietis quod Dominus Deus vivens in medio vestri est, et disperdet in conspectu vestro Chananæum et Hethæum, Hevæum et Pherezæum, Gergesæum quoque et Jebusæum, et Amorrhæum.
  11. Ecce arca fœderis Domini omnis terræ antecedet vos per Jordanem.
  12. Parate duodecim viros de tribubus Israël, singulos per singulas tribus.
  13. Et cum posuerint vestigia pedum suorum sacerdotes qui portant arcam Domini Dei universæ terræ in aquis Jordanis, aquæ quæ inferiores sunt, decurrent atque deficient : quæ autem desuper veniunt, in una mole consistent.
  14. Igitur egressus est populus de tabernaculis suis, ut transiret Jordanem : et sacerdotes, qui portabant arcam fœderis, pergebant ante eum.
  15. Ingressisque eis Jordanem, et pedibus eorum in parte aquæ tinctis (Jordanis autem ripas alvei sui tempore messis impleverat),
  16. steterunt aquæ descendentes in loco uno, et ad instar montis intumescentes apparebant procul, ab urbe quæ vocatur Adom usque ad locum Sarthan : quæ autem inferiores erant, in mare Solitudinis (quod nunc vocatur Mortuum) descenderunt, usquequo omnino deficerent.
  17. Populus autem incedebat contra Jericho : et sacerdotes, qui portabant arcam fœderis Domini, stabant super siccam humum in medio Jordanis accincti, omnisque populus per arentem alveum transibat.
Joshua 3 Text (KJV)
  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.
  2. And it came to pass after three days, that the officers went through the host;
  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.
  4. 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.
  5. And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for to morrow the LORD will do wonders among you.
  6. And Joshua spake 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, Come hither, and hear the words of the LORD your God.
  10. 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.
  11. Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth passeth over before you into Jordan.
  12. Now therefore take you twelve men out of the tribes of Israel, out of every tribe a man.
  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 upon an heap.
  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;
  15. And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the water, (for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest,)
  16. That the waters which came down from above stood and rose up upon an 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.
  17. And the priests that bare 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.
