V. 1-11 One monument which the people could see was on the dry land, and one they could not see was under the water of the Jordan River; one for their remembrance and one for the Lord's.
V. 19-24 Gilgal was the place of this monument, to always remind the Israelites of Jehovah's power which was for them. They had no power in themselves. The Lord's hand was mighty. It was not through any confidence in themselves that they got to Gilgal. Phil. 3:33For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. (Philippians 3:3) would be the Christian's Gilgal, (which means "death to the flesh").
