And that’s what happened. As soon as the feet of the priests touched the water, the water stopped and piled up for many miles backward and the people didn't have to swim or take boats across the river. They walked across the river on dry ground. The priest stood still in the middle of the river on dry ground until all the people had crossed over the Jordan River.
Joshua put the 12 stones from the Jordan River in the camp that night and said to the people, When your children ask, What do these stone mean? Tell them: The Lord your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before us like He dried up the waters of the Red Sea until we were across so that all the people of the world will know how strong our God is and honor Him forever.
