1 H3091 And Joshua H622 [H8799] gathered H7626 all the tribes H3478 of Israel H7927 to Shechem H7121 [H8799] , and called H2205 for the elders H3478 of Israel H7218 , and for their heads H8199 [H8802] , and for their judges H7860 [H8802] , and for their officers H3320 [H8691] ; and they presented H6440 themselves before H430 God.
2 H3091 And Joshua H559 [H8799] said H5971 to all the people H559 [H8804] , Thus saith H3068 the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H1 , Your fathers H3427 [H8804] dwelt H5676 on the other side H5104 of the river H5769 of old H8646 , even Terah H1 , the father H85 of Abraham H1 , and the father H5152 of Nahor H5647 [H8799] : and they served H312 other H430 gods.
3 H3947 [H8799] And I took H1 your father H85 Abraham H5676 from the other side H5104 of the river H3212 [H8686] , and led H776 him throughout all the land H3667 of Canaan H7235 [H8686] , and multiplied H2233 his seed H5414 [H8799] , and gave H3327 him Isaac.
4 H5414 [H8799] And I gave H3327 to Isaac H3290 Jacob H6215 and Esau H5414 [H8799] : and I gave H6215 to Esau H2022 mount H8165 Seir H3423 [H8800] , to possess H3290 it; but Jacob H1121 and his children H3381 [H8804] went down H4714 into Egypt.
5 H7971 [H8799] I sent H4872 Moses H175 also and Aaron H5062 [H8799] , and I plagued H4714 Egypt H834 , according to that which H6213 [H8804] I did H7130 among H310 them: and afterward H3318 [H8689] I brought you out.
6 H3318 [H8686] And I brought H1 your fathers H4714 out of Egypt H935 [H8799] : and ye came H3220 to the sea H4714 ; and the Egyptians H7291 [H8799] pursued H310 after H1 your fathers H7393 with chariots H6571 and horsemen H5488 to the Red H3220 sea.
7 H6817 [H8799] And when they cried H3068 to the LORD H7760 [H8799] , he put H3990 darkness H4713 between you and the Egyptians H935 [H8686] , and brought H3220 the sea H3680 [H8762] upon them, and covered H5869 them; and your eyes H7200 [H8799] have seen H6213 [H8804] what I have done H4714 in Egypt H3427 [H8799] : and ye dwelt H4057 in the wilderness H7227 a long H3117 season.
8 H935 [H8686] And I brought H776 you into the land H567 of the Amorites H3427 [H8802] , who dwelt H5676 on the other side H3383 of Jordan H3898 [H8735] ; and they fought H5414 [H8799] with you: and I gave H3027 them into your hand H3423 [H8799] , that ye might possess H776 their land H8045 [H8686] ; and I destroyed H6440 them from before you.
9 H1111 Then Balak H1121 the son H6834 of Zippor H4428 , king H4124 of Moab H6965 [H8799] , arose H3898 [H8735] and warred H3478 against Israel H7971 [H8799] , and sent H7121 [H8799] and called H1109 Balaam H1121 the son H1160 of Beor H7043 [H8763] to curse you:
10 H14 [H8804] But I would H8085 [H8800] not hearken H1109 to Balaam H1288 [H8762] ; therefore he blessed H1288 [H8800] you still H5337 [H8686] : so I delivered H3027 you out of his hand.
11 H5674 [H8799] And ye went over H3383 Jordan H935 [H8799] , and came H3405 to Jericho H1167 : and the men H3405 of Jericho H3898 [H8735] 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 [H8799] ; and I delivered H3027 them into your hand.
12 H7971 [H8799] And I sent H6880 the hornet H6440 before H1644 [H8762] you, which drove them out H6440 from before H8147 you, even the two H4428 kings H567 of the Amorites H2719 ; but not with thy sword H7198 , nor with thy bow.
13 H5414 [H8799] And I have given H776 you a land H3021 [H8804] for which ye did not labour H5892 , and cities H1129 [H8804] which ye built H3427 [H8799] not, and ye dwell H3754 in them; of the vineyards H2132 and oliveyards H5193 [H8804] which ye planted H398 [H8802] not do ye eat.
14 H3372 [H8798] Now therefore fear H3068 the LORD H5647 [H8798] , and serve H8549 him in sincerity H571 and in truth H5493 [H8685] : and put away H430 the gods H1 which your fathers H5647 [H8804] served H5676 on the other side H5104 of the river H4714 , and in Egypt H5647 [H8798] ; and serve H3068 ye the LORD.
15 H7489 [H8804] And if it seemeth evil H4310 to you H5647 [H8800] to serve H3068 the LORD H977 [H8798] , choose H3117 for yourselves this day H5869 whom H5647 [H8799] ye will serve H430 ; whether the gods H1 which your fathers H5647 [H8804] 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 [H8802] ye dwell H1004 : but as for me and my house H5647 [H8799] , we will serve H3068 the LORD.
16 H5971 And the people H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8799] and said H2486 , Be it far from us H5800 [H8800] that we should forsake H3068 the LORD H5647 [H8800] , to serve H312 other H430 gods;
17 H3068 For the LORD H430 our God H5927 [H8688] , he it is that brought us H1 and our fathers H776 out of the land H4714 of Egypt H1004 , from the house H5650 of bondage H6213 [H8804] , and who did H1419 those great H226 signs H5869 in our sight H8104 [H8799] , and preserved H1870 us in all the way H1980 [H8804] in which we went H5971 , and among all the people H7130 through H5674 [H8804] whom we passed:
18 H3068 And the LORD H1644 [H8762] drove out H6440 from before H5971 us all the people H567 , even the Amorites H3427 [H8802] who dwelt H776 in the land H5647 [H8799] : therefore will we also serve H3068 the LORD H430 ; for he is our God.
19 H3091 And Joshua H559 [H8799] said H5971 to the people H3201 [H8799] , Ye cannot H5647 [H8800] serve H3068 the LORD H6918 : for he is an holy H430 God H7072 ; he is a jealous H410 God H5375 [H8799] ; he will not forgive H6588 your transgressions H2403 nor your sins.
20 H5800 [H8799] If ye forsake H3068 the LORD H5647 [H8804] , and serve H5236 foreign H430 gods H7725 [H8804] , then he will turn H7489 [H8689] and do you harm H3615 [H8765] , and consume H310 you, after H3190 [H8689] that he hath done you good.
21 H5971 And the people H559 [H8799] said H3091 to Joshua H5647 [H8799] , Nay; but we will serve H3068 the LORD.
22 H3091 And Joshua H559 [H8799] said H5971 to the people H5707 , Ye are witnesses H977 [H8804] against yourselves that ye have chosen H3068 you the LORD H5647 [H8800] , to serve H559 [H8799] him. And they said H5707 , We are witnesses.
23 H5493 [H8685] Now therefore put away H5236 , said he, the foreign H430 gods H7130 which are among H5186 [H8685] you, and incline H3824 your heart H3068 to the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel.
24 H5971 And the people H559 [H8799] said H3091 to Joshua H3068 , The LORD H430 our God H5647 [H8799] will we serve H6963 , and his voice H8085 [H8799] will we obey.
25 H3091 So Joshua H3772 [H8799] made H1285 a covenant H5971 with the people H3117 that day H7760 [H8799] , and set H2706 them a statute H4941 and an ordinance H7927 in Shechem.
26 H3091 And Joshua H3789 [H8799] wrote H1697 these words H5612 in the book H8451 of the law H430 of God H3947 [H8799] , and took H1419 a great H68 stone H6965 [H8686] , and set it up H427 there under an oak H4720 , that was by the sanctuary H3068 of the LORD.
27 H3091 And Joshua H559 [H8799] said H5971 to all the people H68 , Behold, this stone H5713 shall be a witness H8085 [H8804] to us; for it hath heard H561 all the words H3068 of the LORD H1696 [H8765] which he spoke H5713 to us: it shall be therefore a witness H3584 [H8762] to you, lest ye deny H430 your God.
28 H3091 So Joshua H5971 let the people H7971 [H8762] depart H376 , every man H5159 to his inheritance.
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 [H8799] , died H3967 , being an hundred H6235 and ten H8141 years H1121 old.
30 H6912 [H8799] And they buried H1366 him in the border H5159 of his inheritance H8556 in Timnathserah H2022 , which is in mount H669 Ephraim H6828 , on the north side H2022 of the hill H1608 of Gaash.
31 H3478 And Israel H5647 [H8799] served H3068 the LORD H3117 all the days H3091 of Joshua H3117 , and all the days H2205 of the elders H748 H3117 H310 [H8689] that outlived H3091 Joshua H3045 [H8804] , and who had known H4639 all the works H3068 of the LORD H6213 [H8804] , that he had done H3478 for Israel.
32 H6106 And the bones H3130 of Joseph H1121 , which the children H3478 of Israel H5927 [H8689] brought H4714 out of Egypt H6912 [H8804] , they buried H7927 in Shechem H2513 , in a parcel H7704 of ground H3290 which Jacob H7069 [H8804] bought H1121 of the sons H2544 of Hamor H1 the father H7927 of Shechem H3967 for an hundred H7192 pieces of silver H5159 : and it became the inheritance H1121 of the children H3130 of Joseph.
