{Joshua 4:18} And it came to pass, x1961 when the priests 3548 that bare 5375 z8802 the ark 727 of the covenant 1285 of the LORD 3068 were come up 5927 z8800 out of the midst 8432 x4480 of Jordan, 3383 [and] the soles 3709 of the priests' 3548 feet 7272 were lifted up 5423 z8738 unto x413 the dry land, 2724 that the waters 4325 of Jordan 3383 returned 7725 z8799 unto their place, 4725 and flowed y3212 z8799 x1980 over x5921 all x3605 his banks, 1415 as 8543 [they did] before. 8032
the soles:
"And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, [that] the waters of Jordan shall be cut off [from] the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon an heap." {Jsh 3:13} + "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 banks all the time of harvest,)" {Jsh 3:15}
lifted up:
Heb. plucked up
that the waters:
As soon as the priests and the ark were come up out of Jordan, the waters of the river, which had stood on a heap, flowed down according to their natural and usual course, and again soon filled the channel. This make it abundantly evident, that the miraculous change which had been given to the river was not from any secret natural cause, but solely by the power of God, and for the sake of his chosen people; for when Israel's host had passed through, and the token of his presence was removed, immediately the waters went forward again, so that if it be asked, "What aileth thee, O Jordan, that thou wast driven back?" it must be answered, it was in obedience to the God of Israel, and in kindness to the Israel of God. "And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. ... And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, [and] all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them." {Exd 14:26-28}
and flowed:
Heb. went, "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 banks all the time of harvest,)" {Jsh 3:15} + "These [are] they that went over Jordan in the first month, when it had overflown all his banks; and they put to flight all [them] of the valleys, [both] toward the east, and toward the west." {1Ch 12:15} + "And he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow and go over, he shall reach [even] to the neck; and the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of thy land, O Immanuel." {Isa 8:8}
