Joshua 24
English Standard Version
24Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem and summoned the elders, the heads, the judges, and the officers of Israel. And they presented themselves before God.H3091H622H7626H3478H7927H7121H2205H3478H7218H8199H7860H3320H6440H430 2And Joshua said to all the people, "Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, 'Long ago, your fathers lived beyond the Euphrates, Terah, the father of Abraham and of Nahor; and they served other gods.H3091H559H5971H559H3068H430H3478H1H3427H5676H5104H5769H8646H1H85H1H5152H5647H312H430 3Then I took your father Abraham from beyond the River and led him through all the land of Canaan, and made his offspring many. I gave him Isaac.H3947H1H85H5676H5104H3212H776H3667H7235H2233H5414H3327 4And to Isaac I gave Jacob and Esau. And I gave Esau the hill country of Seir to possess, but Jacob and his children went down to Egypt.H5414H3327H3290H6215H5414H6215H2022H8165H3423H3290H1121H3381H4714 5And I sent Moses and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt with what I did in the midst of it, and afterward I brought you out.H7971H4872H175H5062H4714H834H6213H7130H310H3318 6"'Then I 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 7And when they cried to the LORD, he put darkness between you and the Egyptians and made the sea come upon them and cover them; and your eyes saw what I did in Egypt. And you lived in the wilderness a long time.H6817H3068H7760H3990H4713H935H3220H3680H5869H7200H6213H4714H3427H4057H7227H3117 8Then I brought you to 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 took possession of their land, and I destroyed them before you.H935H776H567H3427H5676H3383H3898H5414H3027H3423H776H8045H6440 9Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and fought against Israel. And he sent and invited Balaam the son of Beor to curse you,H1111H1121H6834H4428H4124H6965H3898H3478H7971H7121H1109H1121H1160H7043 10but I would not listen to Balaam. Indeed, he blessed you. So I delivered you out of his hand.H14H8085H1109H1288H1288H5337H3027 11And you went over the Jordan and came to Jericho, and the leaders of Jericho fought against you, and also the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites. And I gave them into your hand.H5674H3383H935H3405H1167H3405H3898H567H6522H3669H2850H1622H2340H2983H5414H3027 12And I sent the hornet before you, which drove them out before you, the two kings of the Amorites; it was not by your sword or by your bow.H7971H6880H6440H1644H6440H8147H4428H567H2719H7198 13I gave you a land on which you had not labored and cities that you had not built, and you dwell in them. You eat the fruit of vineyards and olive orchards that you did not plant.'H5414H776H3021H5892H1129H3427H3754H2132H5193H398 14"Now therefore fear the LORD and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness. Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD.H3372H3068H5647H8549H571H5493H430H1H5647H5676H5104H4714H5647H3068 15And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond 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 16Then the people answered, "Far be it from us that we should forsake the LORD to serve other gods,H5971H6030H559H2486H5800H3068H5647H312H430 17for it is the LORD our God who brought us and our fathers up from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery, and 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 peoples, the Amorites who lived in the land. Therefore we also will serve the LORD, for he is our God."H3068H1644H6440H5971H567H3427H776H5647H3068H430 19But Joshua said to the people, "You are not able to 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 foreign 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 23He said, "Then put away the foreign gods that are among you, and incline your heart to the LORD, the God of Israel."H5493H5236H430H7130H5186H3824H3068H430H3478 24And the people said to Joshua, "The LORD our God we will serve, and his voice we will obey."H5971H559H3091H3068H430H5647H6963H8085 25So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and put in place statutes and rules for them at Shechem.H3091H3772H1285H5971H3117H7760H2706H4941H7927 26And Joshua wrote these words in the Book of the Law of God. And he took a large stone and set it up there under the terebinth that was by the sanctuary of the LORD.H3091H3789H1697H5612H8451H430H3947H1419H68H6965H427H4720H3068 27And Joshua said to all the people, "Behold, this stone shall be a witness against us, for it has heard all the words of the LORD that he spoke to us. Therefore it shall be a witness against you, lest you deal falsely with your God."H3091H559H5971H68H5713H8085H561H3068H1696H5713H3584H430 28So Joshua sent the people away, every man to his inheritance.H3091H5971H7971H376H5159 29After these things Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being 110 years old.H310H1697H3091H1121H5126H5650H3068H4191H3967H6235H8141H1121 30And they buried him in his own inheritance at Timnath-serah, which is in the hill country of Ephraim, north of the mountain of Gaash.H6912H1366H5159H8556H2022H669H6828H2022H1608 31Israel served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua and had known all the work that the LORD did for Israel.H3478H5647H3068H3117H3091H3117H2205H748H3117H310H3091H3045H4639H3068H6213H3478 32As for the bones of Joseph, which the people of Israel brought up from Egypt, they buried them at Shechem, in the piece of land that Jacob bought from the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for a hundred pieces of money. It became an inheritance of the descendants of Joseph.H6106H3130H1121H3478H5927H4714H6912H7927H2513H7704H3290H7069H1121H2544H1H7927H3967H7192H5159H1121H3130 33And Eleazar the son of Aaron died, and they buried him at Gibeah, the town of Phinehas his son, which had been given him in the hill country of Ephraim.H499H1121H175H4191H6912H1389H6372H1121H5414H2022H669
