Joshua 3:4-6 New Life Version (NLV)
4 Then you may know the way to go, for you have not passed this way before. But stay about 1,000 long steps away from it. Do not come near it.”
5 Then Joshua said to the people, “Make yourselves holy. For tomorrow the Lord will do powerful works among you.” 6 Joshua said to the religious leaders, “Take up the special box of the agreement and cross over in front of the people.” So they took up the special box of the agreement and went in front of the people.
