Joshua 3:1-17
1. And Joshua rose early in the morning; and they removed from Shittim, and came to the Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and lodged there before they passed over.
2. And it came to pass at the end of three days, that the officers went through the camp;
3. and they commanded the people, saying, When ye see the ark of the covenant of Jehovah your God, and the priests the Levites bearing it, then remove from your place, and go after it;
4. yet there shall be a distance between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure. Ye shall not come near it, that ye may know the way by which ye must go; for ye have not passed this way heretofore.
5. And Joshua said to the people, Hallow yourselves; for to-morrow Jehovah will do wonders in your midst.
6. And Joshua spoke to the priests, saying, Take up the ark of the covenant, and go over before the people. And they took up the ark of the covenant, and went before the people.
7. And Jehovah said to 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 will I be with thee.
8. And thou shalt command the priests who bear the ark of the covenant, saying, When ye come to the edge of the waters of the Jordan, stand still in the Jordan.
9. And Joshua said to the children of Israel, Come hither, and hear the words of Jehovah your God.
10. And Joshua said, Hereby shall ye know that the living God is in your midst, and [that] he will without fail dispossess 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 is going over before you into the Jordan.
12. And now take you twelve men out of the tribes of Israel, one man for each tribe.
13. And it shall come to pass, when the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of Jehovah, the Lord of all the earth, rest in the waters of the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan, the waters flowing down from above, shall be cut off, and shall stand up in a heap.
14. And it came to pass when the people removed from their tents, to pass over the Jordan, that the priests bearing the ark of the covenant were before the people;
15. and when they that bore the ark were come to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (and the Jordan is full over all its banks throughout the days of harvest),
16. the waters which flowed down from above stood [and] rose up in a heap, very far, by Adam, the city that is beside Zaretan; and those that flowed down towards the sea of the plain, the salt sea, were completely cut off. And the people went over opposite to Jericho.
17. And the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of Jehovah stood firm on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan. And all Israel went over on dry ground, until all the nation had completely gone over the Jordan.

Joshua 4:1-24
1. And it came to pass when the whole nation had completely gone over the Jordan, that Jehovah spoke to Joshua, saying,
2. Take you twelve men out of the people, one man out of every tribe,
3. and command them, saying, Take up hence out of the midst of the Jordan, from the place where the priests' feet stood firm, twelve stones, and carry them over with you, and lay them down in the lodging-place where ye shall lodge this night.
4. And Joshua called the twelve men, whom he had appointed of the children of Israel, a man out of every tribe;
5. and Joshua said to them, Pass before the ark of Jehovah your God into the midst of the Jordan, and lift up each of you a stone [and put it] upon his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel,
6. that this may be a sign in your midst. When your children ask hereafter, saying, What mean ye by these stones?
7. then ye shall say to them, That the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of Jehovah; when it went through the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. And these stones shall be for a memorial unto the children of Israel for ever.
8. And the children of Israel did so, as Joshua had commanded, and took up twelve stones out of the midst of the Jordan, as Jehovah had spoken to Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel; and they carried them over with them to the lodging-place, and laid them down there.
9. And twelve stones did Joshua set up in the midst of the Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests who bore the ark of the covenant had stood firm; and they are there to this day.
10. And the priests who bore the ark stood in the midst of the Jordan, until everything was finished that Jehovah had commanded Joshua to speak unto the people, according to all that Moses had commanded Joshua. And the people hasted and passed over.
11. And it came to pass, when all the people had completely gone over, that the ark of Jehovah went over, and the priests, in the presence of the people.
12. And the children of Reuben, and the children of Gad, and the half tribe of Manasseh, went over in array before the children of Israel, as Moses had spoken to them.
13. About forty thousand armed for military service passed over before Jehovah to the war, unto the plains of Jericho.
14. On that day Jehovah magnified Joshua in the sight of all Israel; and they feared him, as they had feared Moses, all the days of his life.
15. And Jehovah spoke to Joshua, saying,
16. Command the priests who bear the ark of the testimony, that they come up out of the Jordan.
17. And Joshua commanded the priests, saying, Come up out of the Jordan.
18. And it came to pass when the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of Jehovah had come up out of the midst of the Jordan, [when] the soles of the priests' feet were lifted up on to the dry land, that the waters of the Jordan returned to their place, and they flowed as previously, over all its banks.
19. And the people came up out of the Jordan on the tenth of the first month, and encamped in Gilgal, on the eastern extremity of Jericho.
20. And those twelve stones which they had taken out of the Jordan did Joshua set up in Gilgal.
21. And he spoke to the children of Israel, saying, When your children hereafter ask their fathers, saying, What [mean] these stones?
22. then ye shall let your children know, saying, On dry land did Israel come over this Jordan;
23. because Jehovah your God dried up the waters of the Jordan from before you, until ye had passed over, as Jehovah your God did to the Red sea, which he dried up from before us, until we had passed over;
24. that all peoples of the earth might know the hand of Jehovah, that it is mighty; that ye might fear Jehovah your God continually.

Psalms 42:1-5
1. {To the chief Musician. An instruction; of the sons of Korah.} As the hart panteth after the water-brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
2. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
3. My tears have been my bread day and night, while they say unto me all the day, Where is thy God?
4. These things I remember and have poured out my soul within me: how I passed along with the multitude, how I went on with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, a festive multitude.
5. Why art thou cast down, my soul, and art disquieted in me? hope in God; for I shall yet praise him, [for] the health of his countenance.

Proverbs 13:17-18
17. A wicked messenger falleth into evil; but a faithful ambassador is health.
18. Poverty and shame shall be [to] him that refuseth instruction; but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.

Luke 9:1-17
1. And having called together the twelve, he gave them power and authority over all demons, and to heal diseases,
2. and sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
3. And he said to them, Take nothing for the way, neither staff, nor scrip, nor bread, nor money; nor to have two body-coats apiece.
4. And into whatsoever house ye enter, there abide and thence go forth.
5. And as many as may not receive you, going forth from that city, shake off even the dust from your feet for a witness against them.
6. And going forth they passed through the villages, announcing the glad tidings and healing everywhere.
7. And Herod the tetrarch heard of all the things which were done [by him], and was in perplexity, because it was said by some that John was risen from among [the] dead,
8. and by some that Elias had appeared, and by others that one of the old prophets had risen again.
9. And Herod said, John *I* have beheaded, but who is this of whom I hear such things? and he sought to see him.
10. And the apostles having returned related to him whatever they had done. And he took them and withdrew apart into [a desert place of] a city called Bethsaida.
11. But the crowds knowing [it] followed him; and he received them and spake to them of the kingdom of God, and cured those that had need of healing.
12. But the day began to decline, and the twelve came and said to him, Send away the crowd that they may go into the villages around, and [into] the fields, and lodge and find victuals, for here we are in a desert place.
13. And he said to them, Give *ye them to eat. And they said, We have not more than five loaves and two fishes, unless *we* should go and buy food for all this people;
14. for they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down in companies by fifties.
15. And they did so, and made them all sit down.
16. And taking the five loaves and the two fishes, looking up to heaven he blessed them, and broke and gave to the disciples to set before the crowd.
17. And they all ate and were filled; and there was taken up of what had remained over and above to them in fragments twelve hand-baskets.
