Please note:   I am offering 3 translations:  King James Version (KJV), Contemporary English Version (CEV) and New International Version (NIV) because it is very difficult to identify with certainty the specific identity of the stones.  You will see repetitions, differences and overlapping in the lists;  but remember, each stone was precious to the Israelites and signified the value God placed upon his people.
