Joshua 24

  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.
  33 H499 And Eleazar H1121 the son H175 of Aaron H4191 [H8804] died; H6912 [H8799] and they buried H1389 him in a hill H6372 that pertained to Phinehas H1121 his son, H5414 [H8738] which was given H2022 him in mount H669 Ephraim.
