Bible: Joshua 3:1-4

Israel Crosses the Jordan

3:1 Bright and early the next morning Joshua and the Israelites left Shittim and came to the Jordan. 1  They camped there before crossing the river. 2  3:2 After three days the leaders went through the camp 3:3 and commanded the people: “When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God 3  being carried by the Levitical priests, you must leave here 4  and walk 5  behind it. 3:4 But stay about three thousand feet behind it. 6  Keep your distance 7  so you can see 8  which way you should go, for you have not traveled this way before.”
