Joshua 24
New American Standard Bible
24Then Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and called for the elders of Israel and for their heads and their judges and their officers; and they presented themselves before God.H3091H622H7626H3478H7927H7121H2205H3478H7218H8199H7860H3320H6440H430 2And Joshua said to all the people, "Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, 'From ancient times your fathers lived beyond the River, [namely,] Terah, the father of Abraham and the father of Nahor, and they served other gods.H3091H559H5971H559H3068H430H3478H1H3427H5676H5104H5769H8646H1H85H1H5152H5647H312H430 3'Then I took your father Abraham from beyond the River, and led him through all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his descendants and gave him Isaac.H3947H1H85H5676H5104H3212H776H3667H7235H2233H5414H3327 4'And to Isaac I gave Jacob and Esau, and to Esau I gave Mount Seir, to possess it; but Jacob and his sons went down to Egypt.H5414H3327H3290H6215H5414H6215H2022H8165H3423H3290H1121H3381H4714 5'Then I sent Moses and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt by what I did in its midst; and afterward I brought you out.H7971H4872H175H5062H4714H834H6213H7130H310H3318 6'And I brought your fathers out of Egypt, and you came to the sea; and Egypt pursued your fathers with chariots and horsemen to the Red Sea.H3318H1H4714H935H3220H4714H7291H310H1H7393H6571H5488H3220 7'But when they cried out to the LORD, He put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them and covered them; and your own eyes saw what I did in Egypt. And you lived in the wilderness for a long time.H6817H3068H7760H3990H4713H935H3220H3680H5869H7200H6213H4714H3427H4057H7227H3117 8'Then I brought you into the land of the Amorites who lived beyond the Jordan, and they fought with you; and I gave them into your hand, and you took possession of their land when I destroyed them before you.H935H776H567H3427H5676H3383H3898H5414H3027H3423H776H8045H6440 9'Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and fought against Israel, and he sent and summoned Balaam the son of Beor to curse you.H1111H1121H6834H4428H4124H6965H3898H3478H7971H7121H1109H1121H1160H7043 10'But I was not willing to listen to Balaam. So he had to bless you, and I delivered you from his hand.H14H8085H1109H1288H1288H5337H3027 11'And you crossed the Jordan and came to Jericho; and the citizens of Jericho fought against you, [and] the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Girgashite, the Hivite and the Jebusite. Thus I gave them into your hand.H5674H3383H935H3405H1167H3405H3898H567H6522H3669H2850H1622H2340H2983H5414H3027 12'Then I sent the hornet before you and it drove out the two kings of the Amorites from before you, [but] not by your sword or your bow.H7971H6880H6440H1644H6440H8147H4428H567H2719H7198 13'And I gave you a land on which you had not labored, and cities which you had not built, and you have lived in them; you are eating of vineyards and olive groves which you did not plant.'H5414H776H3021H5892H1129H3427H3754H2132H5193H398 14"Now, therefore, fear the LORD and serve Him in sincerity and truth; and put away the gods which your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD.H3372H3068H5647H8549H571H5493H430H1H5647H5676H5104H4714H5647H3068 15"And if it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."H7489H4310H5647H3068H977H3117H5869H5647H430H1H5647H5676H5104H430H567H776H3427H1004H5647H3068 16And the people answered and said, "Far be it from us that we should forsake the LORD to serve other gods;H5971H6030H559H2486H5800H3068H5647H312H430 17for the LORD our God is He who brought us and our fathers up out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and who did these great signs in our sight and preserved us through all the way in which we went and among all the peoples through whose midst we passed.H3068H430H5927H1H776H4714H1004H5650H6213H1419H226H5869H8104H1870H1980H5971H7130H5674 18"And the LORD drove out from before us all the peoples, even the Amorites who lived in the land. We also will serve the LORD, for He is our God."H3068H1644H6440H5971H567H3427H776H5647H3068H430 19Then Joshua said to the people, "You will not be able to serve the LORD, for He is a holy God. He is a jealous God; He will not forgive your transgression or your sins.H3091H559H5971H3201H5647H3068H6918H430H7072H410H5375H6588H2403 20"If you forsake the LORD and serve foreign gods, then He will turn and do you harm and consume you after He has done good to you."H5800H3068H5647H5236H430H7725H7489H3615H310H3190 21And the people said to Joshua, "No, but we will serve the LORD."H5971H559H3091H5647H3068 22And Joshua said to the people, "You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen for yourselves the LORD, to serve Him." And they said, "We are witnesses."H3091H559H5971H5707H977H3068H5647H559H5707 23"Now therefore, put away the foreign gods which are in your midst, and incline your hearts to the LORD, the God of Israel."H5493H5236H430H7130H5186H3824H3068H430H3478 24And the people said to Joshua, "We will serve the LORD our God and we will obey His voice."H5971H559H3091H3068H430H5647H6963H8085 25So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and made for them a statute and an ordinance in 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 oak that was by the sanctuary of the LORD.H3091H3789H1697H5612H8451H430H3947H1419H68H6965H427H4720H3068 27And Joshua said to all the people, "Behold, this stone shall be for a witness against us, for it has heard all the words of the LORD which He spoke to us; thus it shall be for a witness against you, lest you deny your God."H3091H559H5971H68H5713H8085H561H3068H1696H5713H3584H430 28Then Joshua dismissed the people, each to his inheritance.H3091H5971H7971H376H5159 29And it came about after these things that Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being one hundred and ten years old.H310H1697H3091H1121H5126H5650H3068H4191H3967H6235H8141H1121 30And they buried him in the territory of his inheritance in Timnath-serah, which is in the hill country of Ephraim, on the north of Mount Gaash.H6912H1366H5159H8556H2022H669H6828H2022H1608 31And Israel served the LORD all the days of Joshua and all the days of the elders who survived Joshua, and had known all the deeds of the LORD which He had done for Israel.H3478H5647H3068H3117H3091H3117H2205H748H3117H310H3091H3045H4639H3068H6213H3478 32Now they buried the bones of Joseph, which the sons of Israel brought up from Egypt, at Shechem, in the piece of ground which Jacob had bought from the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for one hundred pieces of money; and they became the inheritance of Joseph's sons.H6106H3130H1121H3478H5927H4714H6912H7927H2513H7704H3290H7069H1121H2544H1H7927H3967H7192H5159H1121H3130 33And Eleazar the son of Aaron died; and they buried him at Gibeah of Phinehas his son, which was given him in the hill country of Ephraim.H499H1121H175H4191H6912H1389H6372H1121H5414H2022H669
