Joshua Reviews Israel’s History

24THEN JOSHUA gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and summoned the elders of Israel and their heads, their judges, and their officers; they presented themselves before God.H3091H622H7626H3478H7927H7121H2205H3478H7218H8199H7860H3320H6440H430 2Joshua said to all the people, Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt in olden times beyond the Euphrates River, including Terah the father of Abraham and Nahor, and they served other gods.H3091H559H5971H559H3068H430H3478H1H3427H5676H5104H5769H8646H1H85H1H5152H5647H312H430 3And I took your father Abraham from beyond the Euphrates River and led him through all the land of Canaan and multiplied his offspring. I gave him Isaac,H3947H1H85H5676H5104H3212H776H3667H7235H2233H5414H3327 4And I gave to Isaac Jacob and Esau. And I gave to Esau the hill country of Seir to possess, but Jacob and his children went down to Egypt.H5414H3327H3290H6215H5414H6215H2022H8165H3423H3290H1121H3381H4714 5I sent Moses and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt with what I did in the midst of it; and afterward I brought you out.H7971H4872H175H5062H4714H834H6213H7130H310H3318 6I brought your fathers out of Egypt, and you came to the sea; and the Egyptians pursued your fathers with chariots and horsemen to the Red Sea.H3318H1H4714H935H3220H4714H7291H310H1H7393H6571H5488H3220 7When they cried to the Lord, He put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them and covered them; and your eyes saw what I did in Egypt. And you lived in the wilderness a long time [forty years].H6817H3068H7760H3990H4713H935H3220H3680H5869H7200H6213H4714H3427H4057H7227H3117 8I brought you into the land of the Amorites who lived on the other side of the Jordan; they fought with you, and I gave them into your hand, and you possessed their land, and I destroyed them before you.H935H776H567H3427H5676H3383H3898H5414H3027H3423H776H8045H6440 9Then Balak son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred against Israel, and sent and called Balaam son of Beor to curse you.H1111H1121H6834H4428H4124H6965H3898H3478H7971H7121H1109H1121H1160H7043 10But I would not listen to Balaam; therefore he blessed you; so I delivered you out of Balak's hand.H14H8085H1109H1288H1288H5337H3027 11You went over the Jordan and came to Jericho; and the men of Jericho fought against you, as did the Amorites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hittites, Girgashites, Hivites, and Jebusites, and I gave them into your hands.H5674H3383H935H3405H1167H3405H3898H567H6522H3669H2850H1622H2340H2983H5414H3027 12I sent the hornet [that is, the terror of you] before you, which drove the two kings of the Amorites out before you; but it was not by your sword or by your bow.H7971H6880H6440H1644H6440H8147H4428H567H2719H7198 13I have given you a land for which you did not labor and cities you did not build, and you dwell in them; you eat from vineyards and olive yards you did not plant.H5414H776H3021H5892H1129H3427H3754H2132H5193H398 14Now therefore, [reverently] fear the Lord and serve Him in sincerity and in truth; put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the [Euphrates] River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord.H3372H3068H5647H8549H571H5493H430H1H5647H5676H5104H4714H5647H3068 15And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.H7489H4310H5647H3068H977H3117H5869H5647H430H1H5647H5676H5104H430H567H776H3427H1004H5647H3068 16The people answered, Far be it from us to forsake the Lord to serve other gods;H5971H6030H559H2486H5800H3068H5647H312H430 17For it is the Lord our God Who brought us and our fathers up out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, Who did those great signs in our sight and preserved us in all the way that we went and among all the peoples through whom we passed.H3068H430H5927H1H776H4714H1004H5650H6213H1419H226H5869H8104H1870H1980H5971H7130H5674 18And the Lord drove out before us all the people, the Amorites who dwelt in the land. Therefore we also will serve the Lord, for He is our God.H3068H1644H6440H5971H567H3427H776H5647H3068H430 19And Joshua said to the people, You cannot serve the Lord, for He is a holy God; He is a jealous God. He will not forgive your transgressions or your sins.H3091H559H5971H3201H5647H3068H6918H430H7072H410H5375H6588H2403 20If you forsake the Lord and serve strange gods, then He will turn and do you harm and consume you, after having done you good.H5800H3068H5647H5236H430H7725H7489H3615H310H3190 21And the people said to Joshua, No; but we will serve the Lord.H5971H559H3091H5647H3068 22Then Joshua said to the people, You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen the Lord, to serve Him. And they said, We are witnesses.H3091H559H5971H5707H977H3068H5647H559H5707 23Then put away, said he, the foreign gods that are among you and incline your hearts to the Lord, the God of Israel.H5493H5236H430H7130H5186H3824H3068H430H3478 24The people said to Joshua, The Lord our God we will serve; His voice we will obey.H5971H559H3091H3068H430H5647H6963H8085 25So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and made statutes and ordinances for them at Shechem.H3091H3772H1285H5971H3117H7760H2706H4941H7927 26And Joshua wrote these words in the Book of the Law of God; and he took a great stone and set it up there under an oak that was in [the court of] the sanctuary of the Lord.H3091H3789H1697H5612H8451H430H3947H1419H68H6965H427H4720H3068 27And Joshua said to all the people, See, this stone shall be a witness against us, for it has heard all the words the Lord spoke to us; so it shall be a witness against you, lest [afterward] you lie (pretend) {and} deny your God.H3091H559H5971H68H5713H8085H561H3068H1696H5713H3584H430 28So Joshua sent the people away, every man to his inheritance.H3091H5971H7971H376H5159

Joshua’s Death and Burial

29After this, Joshua son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, died, being 110 years old.H310H1697H3091H1121H5126H5650H3068H4191H3967H6235H8141H1121 30They buried him at the edge of his inheritance in Timnath-serah in the hill country of Ephraim, on the north side of the hill of Gaash.H6912H1366H5159H8556H2022H669H6828H2022H1608 31Israel served the Lord all the days of Joshua and of the elders who outlived Joshua and had known all the works the Lord had done for Israel.H3478H5647H3068H3117H3091H3117H2205H748H3117H310H3091H3045H4639H3068H6213H3478 32And the bones of Joseph, which the Israelites brought up out of Egypt, they buried in Shechem in the portion of ground Jacob bought from the sons of Hamor, the father of Shechem, for 100 pieces of money; and it became the inheritance of the Josephites.H6106H3130H1121H3478H5927H4714H6912H7927H2513H7704H3290H7069H1121H2544H1H7927H3967H7192H5159H1121H3130 33And Eleazar son of Aaron died; and they buried him at Gibeah [on the hill] of Phinehas his son, which was given him in the hill country of Ephraim.H499H1121H175H4191H6912H1389H6372H1121H5414H2022H669
