4.1–5.1 : Twelve memorial stones.

There are traces of two traditions: one speaks of twelve stones to be set up at Gilgal ( 4.1–8 ), the other of twelve stones set up in the Jordan ( 9–13 ).

12 :

The Transjordanian tribes crossed first.

19 :

The first month was Abib (March–April), later called Nisan (Exod. 12.2 n. ). Gilgal was somewhere near Jericho; later it became an important sanctuary in the tribe of Benjamin (see 1 Sam. 11.15; 2 Sam. 19.15, 40 ). Amos ( 4.4; 5.5 ) and Hosea ( 4.15; 9.15; 12.11 ) spoke against the worship there.
