Joshua 4

God had also told Joshua to have the representatives of each tribe dig up a large stone from the river bed and carry it across the river with them.

After everyone crossed over, the priests walked out and then the water started flowing again.

The Hebrews camped at Gilgal and and erected the twelve standing stones as monuments as a monument to the crossing of the Jordan. (There’s no explanation as to how this is different from the pillars that Moses said God forbade).
