Joshua Chapter 3

Joshua 3:1
3:1 And Joshua rose early in the morning; and they removed from
    Shittim, and came to {a} Jordan, he and all the children of
    Israel, and lodged there before they passed over.

    (a) Which according to the Hebrews was in March, about 40
        days after Moses' death.

Joshua 3:2
3:2 And it came to pass after {b} three days, that the officers
    went through the host;

    (b) Which was given to prepare food Joshua 1:11.

Joshua 3:8
3:8 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 {c} in Jordan.

    (c) Even in the channel where the stream had run,

Joshua 3:10
3:10 And Joshua said, {d} Hereby ye shall know that the living
     God [is] among you, and [that] he will without fail drive

     (e) Who would set up twelve stones in remembrance of the

Joshua 3:15
3:15 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 {f}
     banks all the time of harvest,)

     (f) Because the river was accustomed at this time to be
         full, the miracle is so much greater.

Joshua 3:17
3:17 And the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the
     LORD stood {g} 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.

     (g) Either tarrying till the people were past, or as some
         read, sure, as though they had been on dry land.
