Joshua 4: 1-7

"When the whole nation had finished crossing
the Jordan, the LORD said to Joshua, "Choose
twelve men from among the people, one from
each tribe, and tell them to take up twelve
stones from the middle of the Jordan from right
where the priests stood and to carry them over
with you and put them down at the place where
you stay tonight."
So Joshua called together the twelve men he
had appointed from the Israelites, one from
each tribe, and said to them, "Go over before
the ark of the LORD your God into the middle of
the Jordan.  
                
Each of you is to take up a stone on his shoulder,
according to the number of the tribes of the Israelites, to
serve as a sign among you. In the future, when your
children ask you, 'What do these stones mean?' tell them
that the flow of the Jordan was cut off before the ark of the
covenant of the LORD. When it crossed the Jordan, the
waters of the Jordan were cut off. These stones are to be a
memorial to the people of Israel forever."  (NIV)
