1 καὶ ἐπεὶ συνετέλεσεν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς διαβαίνων τὸν Ιορδάνην καὶ εἶπεν κύριος τῷ Ἰησοῖ λέγων 2 παραλαβὼν ἄνδρας ἀπὸ τοῦ λαοῦ ἕνα ἀ{F'} ἑκάστης φυλῆς 3 σύνταξον 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 4 καὶ ἀνακαλεσάμενος Ἰησοῦς δώδεκα ἄνδρας τῶν ἐνδόξων ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἕνα ἀ{F'} ἑκάστης φυλῆς 5 εἶπεν 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 6 ἵνα ὑπάρχωσιν ὑμῖν οὗτοι εἰς σημεῖον κείμενον διὰ παντός ἵνα ὅταν ἐρωτᾷ σε ὁ υἱός σου αὔριον λέγων τί εἰσιν οἱ λίθοι οὗτοι ὑμῖν 7 καὶ 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 8 καὶ 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 9 ἔστησεν 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 1 And when they had crossed over, the Lord bade Josue 2 choose out twelve men, one from each tribe; 3 each was to pick out a solid stone from the river-bed, where the feet of the priests had stood, and these must be set up to mark the place where they encamped that night. 4 So Josue summoned twelve men, whom he had chosen out to represent the twelve tribes of Israel; 5 Go half-way across Jordan, he told them, to where the ark of the Lord your God stands, and bring me thence on your shoulders one stone each of you, one for each of the tribes of Israel. 6 They are to serve you for a monument; your children, before long, will be asking you, What is the meaning of these stones? 7 And you will be able to answer, When the ark that bears record of the Lord’s covenant went across the Jordan, the waters dried up at its coming; that is why these stones have been set up here, to remind Israel of that crossing for all time. 8 The Israelites did as Josue bade them; carried the twelve stones from the river-bed, one for each tribe, as the Lord had commanded, and set them down in the camp. 9 Josue also marked the place, full in the bed of Jordan, where the priests and the ark had halted; here, too, he set up twelve stones, which are there to this day. 1 Quibus transgressis, dixit Dominus ad Josue: 2 Elige duodecim viros singulos per singulas tribus: 3 et præcipe eis ut tollant de medio Jordanis alveo, ubi steterunt pedes sacerdotum, duodecim durissimos lapides, quos ponetis in loco castrorum, ubi fixeritis hac nocte tentoria. 4 Vocavitque Josue duodecim viros, quos elegerat de filiis Israël, singulos de singulis tribubus, 5 et ait ad eos: Ite ante arcam Domini Dei vestri ad Jordanis medium, et portate inde singuli singulos lapides in humeris vestris, juxta numerum filiorum Israël, 6 ut sit signum inter vos: et quando interrogaverint vos filii vestri cras, dicentes: Quid sibi volunt isti lapides? 7 respondebitis eis: Defecerunt aquæ Jordanis ante arcam fœderis Domini, cum transiret eum: idcirco positi sunt lapides isti in monimentum filiorum Israël usque in æternum. 8 Fecerunt ergo filii Israël sicut præcepit eis Josue, portantes de medio Jordanis alveo duodecim lapides, ut Dominus ei imperarat, juxta numerum filiorum Israël, usque ad locum in quo castrametati sunt, ibique posuerunt eos. 9 Alios quoque duodecim lapides posuit Josue in medio Jordanis alveo, ubi steterunt sacerdotes qui portabant arcam fœderis: et sunt ibi usque in præsentem diem.
10 εἱστήκεισαν 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 11 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς συνετέλεσεν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς διαβῆναι καὶ διέβη ἡ κιβωτὸς τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου καὶ οἱ λίθοι ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῶν 12 καὶ διέβησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ρουβην καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Γαδ καὶ οἱ ἡμίσεις φυλῆς Μανασση διεσκευασμένοι ἔμπροσθεν τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ καθάπερ ἐνετείλατο αὐτοῖς Μωυσῆς 13 τετρακισμύριοι εὔζωνοι εἰς μάχην διέβησαν ἐναντίον κυρίου εἰς πόλεμον πρὸς τὴν Ιεριχω πόλιν 14 ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ηὔξησεν κύριος τὸν Ἰησοῦν ἐναντίον παντὸς τοῦ γένους Ισραηλ καὶ ἐφοβοῦντο αὐτὸν ὥσπερ Μωυσῆν ὅσον χρόνον ἔζη 15 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος τῷ Ἰησοῖ λέγων 16 ἔντειλαι τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν τοῖς αἴρουσιν τὴν κιβωτὸν τῆς διαθήκης τοῦ μαρτυρίου κυρίου ἐκβῆναι ἐκ τοῦ Ιορδάνου 17 καὶ ἐνετείλατο Ἰησοῦς τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν λέγων ἔκβητε ἐκ τοῦ Ιορδάνου 18 καὶ 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 δ{I'} ὅλης τῆς κρηπῖδος 10 Meanwhile, such was the divine command Josue had received through Moses, the priests must stand there in the river-bed till all was over.[1] So the people marched on speedily enough; 11 not till all had reached the other side could the ark of the Lord cross, and the priests take their place at the head of the people. 12 Ruben and Gad and half Manasses must send their warriors in the van of Israel, as Moses bade them; 13 company after company, file after file, these in their turn went past, forty thousand fighting men, into the level plain that lies before the city of Jericho. 14 That day, the Lord would win renown for Josue for all Israel to see; he was to be feared as Moses was feared in life. 15 And now the Lord had a fresh command for him, 16 Bid the priests that are carrying the ark come out of the Jordan. 17 The word was given, and they came up, carrying the ark with them; 18 and no sooner had they set foot on dry ground than the stream filled its bed again, flowing past as before. 10 Sacerdotes autem qui portabant arcam, stabant in Jordanis medio, donec omnia complerentur, quæ Josue, ut loqueretur ad populum, præceperat Dominus, et dixerat ei Moyses. Festinavitque populus, et transiit. 11 Cumque transissent omnes, transivit et arca Domini, sacerdotesque pergebant ante populum. 12 Filii quoque Ruben, et Gad, et dimidia tribus Manasse, armati præcedebant filios Israël, sicut eis præceperat Moyses: 13 et quadraginta pugnatorum millia per turmas, et cuneos, incedebant per plana atque campestria urbis Jericho. 14 In die illo magnificavit Dominus Josue coram omni Israël, ut timerent eum, sicut timuerant Moysen, dum adviveret. 15 Dixitque ad eum: 16 Præcipe sacerdotibus, qui portant arcam fœderis, ut ascendant de Jordane. 17 Qui præcepit eis, dicens: Ascendite de Jordane. 18 Cumque ascendissent portantes arcam fœderis Domini, et siccam humum calcare cœpissent, reversæ sunt aquæ in alveum suum, et fluebant sicut ante consueverant.
19 καὶ 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 20 καὶ τοὺς δώδεκα λίθους τούτους οὓς ἔλαβεν ἐκ τοῦ Ιορδάνου ἔστησεν Ἰησοῦς ἐν Γαλγαλοις 21 λέγων ὅταν ἐρωτῶσιν ὑμᾶς οἱ υἱοὶ ὑμῶν λέγοντες τί εἰσιν οἱ λίθοι οὗτοι 22 ἀναγγείλατε τοῖς υἱοῖς ὑμῶν ὅτι ἐπὶ ξηρᾶς διέβη Ισραηλ τὸν Ιορδάνην 23 ἀποξηράναντος 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 25 ὅπως γνῶσιν πάντα τὰ ἔθνη τῆς γῆς ὅτι ἡ δύναμις τοῦ κυρίου ἰσχυρά ἐστιν καὶ ἵνα ὑμεῖς σέβησθε κύριον τὸν θεὸν ὑμῶν ἐν παντὶ χρόνῳ 19 On the tenth day of the first month the people left Jordan behind them, and encamped at Galgal, east of the city of Jericho. 20 Here, at Galgal, Josue set up the twelve stones they had taken out of the river-bed. 21 And he said to the Israelites, It will not be long before sons are asking their fathers the question, What is the meaning of these stones? 22 And you will hand on the lesson to them: Israel once crossed over Jordan yonder dry-shod. 23 The Lord your God dried up its waters in full view of Israel, to let them pass over, 24 just as in earlier times he dried up the Red Sea, when it lay in our path. 25 So all the nations of the world were to learn how strong the power of the Lord is, and you too should fear the Lord your God continually. 19 Populus autem ascendit de Jordane decimo die mensis primi, et castrametati sunt in Galgalis contra orientalem plagam urbis Jericho. 20 Duodecim quoque lapides, quos de Jordanis alveo sumpserant, posuit Josue in Galgalis, 21 et dixit ad filios Israël: Quando interrogaverint filii vestri cras patres suos, et dixerint eis: Quid sibi volunt lapides isti? 22 docebitis eos, atque dicetis: Per arentem alveum transivit Israël Jordanem istum, 23 siccante Domino Deo vestro aquas ejus in conspectu vestro, donec transiretis, sicut fecerat prius in mari Rubro, quod siccavit donec transiremus: 25 ut discant omnes terrarum populi fortissimam Domini manum, ut et vos timeatis Dominum Deum vestrum omni tempore.
