1 H3091 And Joshua H622 gathered H7626 all the tribes H3478 of Israel H7927 to Shechem, H7121 and called H2205 for the elders H3478 of Israel, H7218 and for their heads, H8199 and for their judges, H7860 and for their officers; H3320 and they presented H6440 themselves before H430 God.
2 H3091 And Joshua H559 said H5971 unto all the people, H559 Thus says H3068 the Lord H430 God H3478 of Israel, H1 Your fathers H3427 lived H5676 on the other side H5104 of the River H5769 in old time, H8646 even Terah, H1 the father H85 of Abraham, H1 and the father H5152 of Nachor: H5647 and they served H312 other H430 gods.
3 H3947 And I took H1 your father H85 Abraham H5676 from the other side H5104 of the flood, H3212 and led H776 him throughout all the land H3667 of Canaan, H7235 and multiplied H2233 his seed, H5414 and gave H3327 him Isaac.
4 H5414 And I gave H3327 unto Isaac H3290 Jacob H6215 and Esau: H5414 and I gave H6215 unto Esau H2022 mountain H8165 Seir, H3423 to possess H3290 it; but Jacob H1121 and his sons H3381 went down H4714 into Egypt.
5 H7971 I sent H4872 Moses H175 also and Aaron, H5062 and I plagued H4714 Egypt, H834 according to that which H6213 I did H7130 among H310 them: and afterward H3318 I brought you out.
6 H3318 And I brought H1 your fathers H4714 out of Egypt: H935 and you came H3220 unto the sea; H4714 and the Egyptians H7291 pursued H310 after H1 your fathers H7393 with chariots H6571 and horsemen H5488 unto the Red H3220 sea.
7 H6817 And when they cried H3068 unto the Lord, H7760 he put H3990 darkness H4713 between you and the Egyptians, H935 and brought H3220 the sea H3680 upon them, and covered H5869 them; and your eyes H7200 have seen H6213 what I have done H4714 in Egypt: H3427 and you lived H4057 in the wilderness H7227 a long H3117 season.
8 H935 And I brought H776 you into the land H567 of the Amorites, H3427 which lived H5676 on the other side H3383 Jordan; H3898 and they fought H5414 with you: and I gave H3027 them into your hand, H3423 that you might possess H776 their land; H8045 and I destroyed H6440 them from before you.
9 H1111 Then Balak H1121 the son H6834 of Zippor, H4428 king H4124 of Moab, H6965 arose H3898 and warred H3478 against Israel, H7971 and sent H7121 and called H1109 Balaam H1121 the son H1160 of Beor H7043 to curse you:
10 H14 But I would H8085 not listen H1109 unto Balaam; H1288 therefore he blessed H1288 you still: H5337 so I delivered H3027 you out of his hand.
11 H5674 And you went over H3383 Jordan, H935 and came H3405 unto Jericho: H1167 and the men H3405 of Jericho H3898 fought H567 against you, the Amorites, H6522 and the Perizzites, H3669 and the Canaanites, H2850 and the Hittites, H1622 and the Girgashites, H2340 the Hivites, H2983 and the Jebusites; H5414 and I delivered H3027 them into your hand.
12 H7971 And I sent H6880 the hornet H6440 before H1644 you, which drove them out H6440 from before H8147 you, even the two H4428 kings H567 of the Amorites; H2719 but not with your sword, H7198 nor with your bow.
13 H5414 And I have given H776 you a land H3021 for which you did not labor, H5892 and cities H1129 which you built H3427 not, and you live H3754 in them; of the vineyards H2132 and olive groves H5193 which you planted H398 not do you eat.
14 H3372 Now therefore fear H3068 the Lord, H5647 and serve H8549 him in sincerity H571 and in truth: H5493 and put away H430 the gods H1 which your fathers H5647 served H5676 on the other side H5104 of the River, H4714 and in Egypt; H5647 and serve H3068 you the Lord.
15 H7489 And if it seem evil H4310 unto you H5647 to serve H3068 the Lord, H977 choose H3117 you this day H5869 whom H5647 you will serve; H430 whether the gods H1 which your fathers H5647 served H5676 that were on the other side H5104 of the River, H430 or the gods H567 of the Amorites, H776 in whose land H3427 you live: H1004 but as for me and my house, H5647 we will serve H3068 the Lord.
16 H5971 And the people H6030 answered H559 and said, H2486 God forbid H5800 that we should forsake H3068 the Lord, H5647 to serve H312 other H430 gods;
17 H3068 For the Lord H430 our God, H5927 he it is that brought us up H1 and our fathers H776 out of the land H4714 of Egypt, H1004 from the house H5650 of bondage, H6213 and which did H1419 those great H226 signs H5869 in our sight, H8104 and preserved H1870 us in all the way H1980 where we went, H5971 and among all the people H7130 through H5674 whom we passed:
18 H3068 And the Lord H1644 drove out H6440 from before H5971 us all the people, H567 even the Amorites H3427 which lived H776 in the land: H5647 therefore will we also serve H3068 the Lord; H430 for he is our God.
19 H3091 And Joshua H559 said H5971 unto the people, H3201 You cannot H5647 serve H3068 the Lord: H6918 for he is an holy H430 God; H7072 he is a jealous H410 God; H5375 he will not forgive H6588 your transgressions H2403 nor your sins.
20 H5800 If you forsake H3068 the Lord, H5647 and serve H5236 strange H430 gods, H7725 then he will turn H7489 and do you hurt, H3615 and consume H310 you, after H3190 that he has done you good.
22 H3091 And Joshua H559 said H5971 unto the people, H5707 You are witnesses H977 against yourselves that you have chosen H3068 you the Lord, H5647 to serve H559 him. And they said, H5707 We are witnesses.
23 H5493 Now therefore put away, H5236 said he, the strange H430 gods H7130 which are among H5186 you, and incline H3824 your heart H3068 unto the Lord H430 God H3478 of Israel.
24 H5971 And the people H559 said H3091 unto Joshua, H3068 The Lord H430 our God H5647 will we serve, H6963 and his voice H8085 will we obey.
25 H3091 So Joshua H3772 made H1285 a covenant H5971 with the people H3117 that day, H7760 and set H2706 them a statute H4941 and an ordinance H7927 in Shechem.
26 H3091 And Joshua H3789 wrote H1697 these words H5612 in the book H8451 of the law H430 of God, H3947 and took H1419 a great H68 stone, H6965 and set it up H427 there under an oak, H4720 that was by the sanctuary H3068 of the Lord.
27 H3091 And Joshua H559 said H5971 unto all the people, H68 Behold, this stone H5713 shall be a witness H8085 unto us; for it has heard H561 all the words H3068 of the Lord H1696 which he spoke H5713 unto us: it shall be therefore a witness H3584 unto you, lest you deny H430 your God.
29 H310 And it came to pass after H1697 these things, H3091 that Joshua H1121 the son H5126 of Nun, H5650 the servant H3068 of the Lord, H4191 died, H3967 being a hundred H6235 and ten H8141 years H1121 old.
30 H6912 And they buried H1366 him in the border H5159 of his inheritance H8556 in Timnath–serah, H2022 which is in mountain H669 Ephraim, H6828 on the north side H2022 of the hill H1608 of Gaash.
31 H3478 And Israel H5647 served H3068 the Lord H3117 all the days H3091 of Joshua, H3117 and all the days H2205 of the elders H3117 that outlived H3091 Joshua, H3045 and which had known H4639 all the works H3068 of the Lord, H6213 that he had done H3478 for Israel.
32 H6106 And the bones H3130 of Joseph, H1121 which the sons H3478 of Israel H5927 brought up H4714 out of Egypt, H6912 buried H7927 they in Shechem, H2513 in a parcel H7704 of ground H3290 which Jacob H7069 bought H1121 of the sons H2544 of Hamor H1 the father H7927 of Shechem H3967 for a hundred H7192 pieces of silver: H5159 and it became the inheritance H1121 of the sons H3130 of Joseph.
