8 Act agreeably to these orders; behold I have commanded you.
1 Again Joshua assembled all the tribes of Israel at Se lo, and having convened their elders, and their under officers, and their judges, and placed them before God, 2 Joshua said to all the people, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, your fathers dwelt in old time Beyond the river, namely, Thara, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor. And they served other gods. 3 And I took your father Abraham from Beyond the river, and led him through all this land, and multiplied his seed, and gave him Isaak; 4 and to Isaak, Jacob and Esau; and to Esau I gave mount Seir for a possession; but Jacob and his sons went down into Egypt, and became there a nation, great, numerous and powerful. And when the Egyptians afflicted them, 5 I smote Egypt with signal miracles, which I did among them. 6 Now after this he brought our fathers out of Egypt, and you marched into the Red sea; and when the Egyptians pursued our fathers, with horses and chariots, into the Red sea, 7 and we cried to the Lord, he put a cloud and darkness between us and the Egyptians; and brought the sea upon them, and it overwhelmed them. Your eyes have seen all that the Lord did in the land of Egypt. And when you had been many years in the wilderness, 8 he brought us to the land of the Amorites, who dwelt on the border of the Jordan; and the Lord delivered them into our hands, and you took possession of their land, and extirpated them from before you. 9 And when Balak, son of Sepphor, king of Moab, arose and drew up in array against Israel, and sent for Balaam to curse us, 10 the Lord thy God would not destroy thee, nay he caused him to bless us with blessings, and rescued us out of their hands, and delivered them up. 11 And when you crossed the Jordan, and came to Jericho, and the Amorites who inhabited Jericho, and the Chananites, and the Pherezites, and the Evites, and the Jebusites, and the Chettites, and the Gergasites, fought against us, the Lord delivered them into our hands. 12 Indeed he sent before you the hornet, and drove them out from before us, even the twelve kings of the Amorites, not with thy sword, nor with thy bow, 13 and hath given you a land, on which you did not bestow labour, and cities which you did not build, and you are settled therein, and are eating of vineyards, and olive yards, which you did not plant. 14 Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve him with sincerity and truth, and put away the strange gods which our fathers worshipped in beyond the river, and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. 15 But if it seemeth not good to you to serve the Lord, chuse for yourselves this day whom you will serve, either the gods of your fathers which were in 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; for he is holy. 16 Upon this the people answered, and said, God forbid that we should forsake the Lord to serve other gods. 17 The Lord is our God. He is God. He hath brought up us and our fathers out of Egypt, and preserved us all the way we went, and among all the nations through which we passed, 18 and the Lord hath driven out from before us the Amorites, and all the nations who dwelt in this land; therefore we will serve none but the Lord; for he is our God. 19 And Joshua said to the people, You may not be able to serve the Lord, because he is the Holy God, and will be zealous. He will not bear with your sins and your iniquities. 20 When you forsake the Lord, and serve other gods, he will come and afflict you; and consume you, proportionally to the good he hath done you. 21 And the people said to Joshua, Nay, we will serve none but the Lord. 22 Then Joshua said to the people, You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen the Lord to serve him. 23 Now therefore put away the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart to the Lord God of Israel. 24 And the people said to Joshua, We will serve the Lord, and hearken to his voice. 25 So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and gave it to them as a law, and a solemn decision at Selo, before the tabernacle of the Lord God of Israel. 26 And when he had written these words in the book of the laws of God, he took a great stone, and set it up under a fir tree which was over against the Lord, 27 and Joshua said to the people, Behold this stone shall be among you for a witness, that it hath heard all that were said by the Lord, for he hath this day spoken to you; and this shall be among you for a witness in the latter days, whenever you prove false to the Lord my God. 28 Then Joshua dismissed the people, and they departed every one to his place; 29 And after those things, Joshua the son of Nave, the servant of the Lord died at the age of a hundred and ten years; 30 and they buried him in the boundaries of his inheritance, at Thamnasachar, on mount Ephraim, north of mount Gaas. There they deposited with him, in the grave in which they buried him, the stone knives with which he had circumcised the children of Israel at Galgala, as the Lord commanded them, when he had brought them out of Egypt. And there they are at this day. 31 and Israel served the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who out lived Joshua, and who had seen all the works of the Lord which he had done for Israel. 32 Now the children of Israel had brought up out of Egypt, the bones of Joseph, and they buried them at Sikimoi, in that portion of the field which Jacob purchased of the Amorites who dwelt at Sikimoi, for a hundred lambs, and which he gave to Joseph for an inheritance. 33 And after these things, Eleazar son of Aaron, the chief priest, died, and was buried in Gabaar, which belonged to Phineas his son, which he had given him on mount Ephraim. At that time the children of Israel took up the ark of God, and carried it about among them. And Phineas officiated as priest in the room of his father Eleazar. And when he died, he was buried in Gabaar, which belonged to him. As for the children of Israel, they had gone to their several homes, and to their respective: cities. And when the children of Israel fell to worshipping Astarte, and Astaroth, and the gods of the nations around them, the Lord delivered them into the hands of Eglon king of Moab, and he exercised dominion over them eighteen years.
1 Now when the kings of the Amorites, who were on the border of the Jordan, and the kings of Phoenicia, who were on the sea coast, heard that the Lord God had dried up the river Jordan before the Israelites, when they crossed, their hearts were melted, and they were struck with consternation, and there was no spirit in them because of the Israelites. 2 And at that time the Lord said to Joshua, Make thee stone knives of the hardest flint, and having again a fixed abode, circumcise the children of Israel. 3 So Joshua made sharp knives of stone, and circumcised the children of Israel at the place called Hill of foreskins. 4 And in this manner Joshua purified the children of Israel; All who had been born on the way, and all who had formerly been uncircumcised, when they came out of Egypt, 5 all these Joshua circumcised; for Israel had been led about forty two years in the wilderness of Mabdaritis, therefore the most of them were uncircumcised, 6 being the children of those warriors who came out of the land of Egypt, who disobeyed the commands of God, and to whom he denounced, that they should not see the land which the Lord solemnly promised their fathers that he would give; a land flowing with milk and honey; 7 and instead of them he raised up these their children, whom Joshua circumcised, because, being born on the way, they were uncircumcised. 8 And being now circumcised, they were to continue there at rest, in the camp, until they were healed. 9 And the Lord said to Joshua son of Nave, This day I have taken away from you the reproach of Egypt. So he called the name of that place Galgala. 10 And on the fourteenth of the same month, towards evening, the children of Israel pre 11 pared the passover, on the confines of Jericho, in the plain of Jordan, 11 and ate of the corn of the land, unleavened cakes and parched corn. On that very day, 12 after they had eaten the corn of the land, the manna ceased, and there was no more a supply of manna for the children of Israel. So they foraged the country of the Phoenicians that year. 13 Now when Joshua was by Jericho, he raised his eyes, and saw a man standing before him, with a drawn sword in his hand, upon which Joshua, advancing, said to him, Art thou one of us or of our enemies? 14 And he said to him, I am the captain general of the host of the Lord, just arrived. At this Joshua prostrated himself, with his face to the ground, and said to him, My lord, what dost thou command thy servant? 15 And the Lord's captain general said to Joshua, Loose the sandals from thy feet, for the place on which thou didst stand is holy ground.
1 Now when Adonibezek, the king of Jerusalem heard that Joshua had taken Gai, and utterly destroyed it; [As they had done to Jericho, and the king thereof, so had they done to Gai, and its king] and that the inhabitants of Gabaon had gone over to Joshua and Israel; 2 [Now there was a great dread on account of them, for he knew that Gabaon was a great city, like one of the chief cities, and that all the inhabitants thereof were men of valour;] 3 Adonibezek, the king of Jerusalem sent to Elam, king of Chebron, and to Phedon, king of Jerimuth, and to Jephtha, king of Lachis, and to Dabin, king of Odollam, saying, 4 Haste, come up to me, and help me, and let us smite Gabaon, for they have revolted to Joshua and the Israelites. 5 So the five kings of the Jebusites, the king of Jerusalem, and the king of Chebron, and the king of Jerimuth, and the king of Lachis, and the king of Odollam, went up, they and their people, and encamped about Gabaon, and besieged it. 6 Thereupon the inhabitants of Gabaon sent to Joshua, to the camp of Israel, at Galgala, saying, Slack not thy hands from thy servants. Come up to us with all speed, and help us, and deliver us; for all the kings of the Amorites who inhabit the hilly country are assembled against us. 7 So Joshua went up from Galgala, he and all the people of war with him, every man of valour. 8 And the Lord said to Joshua, Be not afraid of them, for I have delivered them into thy hands. There shall not one of them be left before you. 9 And when Joshua came upon them suddenly, having marched all night from Galgala, 10 the Lord struck them with a panic, on account of the children of Israel, and the Lord routed them, with a great slaughter, at Gabaon. And they pursued them by the way of the ascent of Oronin, and smote them even to Azeka, and to Makeda. 11 And as they were fleeing from before Israel, at the descent of Oronin, the Lord poured a storm of hail stones from heaven upon them, all the way to Azeka; so that there were more who died by the hail stones, than the children of Israel slew with the sword in battle. 12 Then Joshua spoke to the Lord, on the day God delivered up the Amorite into the hand of Israel. When he had discomfited them at Gabaon, and they were routed before the children of Israel, Joshua said, Let the sun stand over against Gabaon, and the moon over against the valley of Ailon. 13 So the sun stood still, and the moon in its station; until God executed vengeance on their enemies, the sun stood in the midst of heaven; it advanced not to the setting, to the end of a day. 14 So that there never was such a day before, nor after it such an instance of God's hearkening to man. 15 Because the Lord fought conjointly with Israel, 16 therefore the five kings fled, and hid themselves in the cave at Makeda. 17 And when it was told Joshua, saying, The five kings are found hidden in the cave at Makeda, 18 Joshua said, Roll stones on the mouth of the cave, and set men to keep watch over them; 19 but as for you, halt not; pursue your enemies, and attack their rear, and suffer them not to enter their cities; for the Lord our God hath delivered them into our hands. 20 And when Joshua, and all Israel, had made an end of slaughtering them till they were utterly routed, and those who had escaped had got into fortified cities, 21 all the people returned safe to Joshua to Makeda, and there was not a murmur on the tongue of any one among the children of Israel. 22 Then Joshua said, Open the cave, and bring out the five kings out of the cave. 23 So they brought the five kings out of the cave; the king of Jerusalem, and the king of Chebron, and the king of Jerimuth, and the king of Lachis, and the king of Odollam. 24 And when they had brought them out to Joshua, he called together ail Israel, namely the chief commanders of the army who went out with him, and said to them, Go near, and put your feet on the necks of those men. And when they had gone near, and put their feet on their necks, 25 Joshua said to them, Fear them not, nor be dismayed. Be strong and of good courage; for thus will the Lord do to all your enemies, against whom you fight. 26 So Joshua slew them, and hanged them on five gibbets, and they hung on the gibbets till evening. 27 And at the setting of the sun Joshua gave orders, and they took them down from the gibbets, and threw them into the cave, and rolled stones on the cave, which still remain. 28 Now on that day they took Makeda, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and utterly destroyed every thing therein which breathed. There was not one left who escaped or fled. And when they had done to the king of Makeda as they did to the king of Jericho, 29 Joshua, and all Israel with him, marched from Makeda to Lebna and besieged it; 30 and the Lord delivered it into the hands of Israel, and they took it and the king thereof, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and every thing in it which had breath. There was not one left in it who escaped, or fled. And when they had done to the king thereof as they did to the king of Jericho, 31 Joshua, and all Israel with him, marched from Lebna to Lachis, and encamped about it, and besieged it. 32 And the Lord delivered Lachis into the hands of Israel; and they took it on the second day, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and utterly destroyed it as they had done Lebna. 33 At that time Elam, king of Gazer, having come up to assist Lachis, Joshua smote him with the edge of the sword, till there was none of them left who escaped, or fled. 34 Then Joshua, and all Israel with him, went from Lachis to Odollam, and encamped about it, and besieged it. 35 And the Lord delivered it into the hand of Israel, and they took it that day, and smote it with the edge of the sword. 36 And when they had slain every living soul therein, as they had done at Lachis, 37 Joshua, and all Israel with him, went to Chebron, and encamped about it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and every living soul therein. Not one escaped. As they had done to Odollam, they utterly destroyed it, and all that were in it. 38 Then Joshua, and all Israel, wheeled round to Dabir, and encamped about it, and took it, and the king thereof, and the villages thereof. And he smote it with the edge of the sword. 39 And they utterly destroyed it, and every soul in it. They did not leave one alive. As they had done to Chebron, and its king, so they did to Dabir, and its king. 40 Thus did Joshua smite all the hilly country, and Nageb, and the plain, and Asedoth, and the kings thereof. They did not leave one of them alive. They utterly destroyed every one who breathed the breath of life, as the Lord God of Israel had commanded. 41 From Kades-barne to Gaza, Joshua smote at one time all the land of Gosom, quite to Gabaon, all their kings, and their land, for the Lord the God of Israel fought for Israel.
15 But if it seemeth not good to you to serve the Lord, chuse for yourselves this day whom you will serve, either the gods of your fathers which were in 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; for he is holy.
1 Thereupon Joshua arose early next morning, and removed from Sattin; and having come to the Jordan, they halted there some time before they crossed. 2 And after three days the officers went through the camp, 3 and gave a charge to the people, saying, When you see the Ark of the covenant of the Lord our God, and our priests, and the Levites carrying it, you shall remove from your places, and march after it. 4 But let there be a considerable distance between you and it. You shall keep at the distance of about two thousand cubits. You must not come near it, that you may know the way you are to march; for you have never heretofore gone this way. 5 Then Joshua said to the people, Purify yourselves against to-morrow; for to-morrow the Lord will do wonders among you. 6 And when Joshua said to the priests, Take up the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and march before the people; and the priests had taken up the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and were marching before the people, 7 the Lord said to Joshua, This day I begin to exalt thee in the sight of all the children of Israel, that they may know that as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee. 8 Now therefore command the priests who are carrying the ark of the covenant, and say, Soon as you are come to a part of the water of the Jordan, you shall halt at the Jordan. 9 Then Joshua said to the sons of Israel, Draw near, and hear the word of the Lord our God. 10 By this you will know that the living God is among you, and that he will surely root out from before you the Chananite, and the Chettite, and the Pherezite, and the Evite, and the Amorite, and Gergasite, and the Jebusite. 11 Behold the ark of the covenant of the Lord of the whole earth is about to cross the Jordan; 12 [Omitted] 13 and it shall come to pass, that when the feet of the priests who are carrying the ark of the covenant of the Lord of the whole earth shall rest in the water of the Jordan, the water of the Jordan shall fail, and the water which is coming down shall be stopped. 14 So the people removed from their tents to cross the Jordan, and the priests carried the Ark of the covenant of the Lord before the people. 15 And soon as the priests who were carrying the ark of the covenant came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests, who were carrying the ark of the covenant of the Lord, were dipped into a part of the water of the Jordan, though the Jordan overflowed all its banks, as in the days of wheat harvest, 16 yet the waters coming down from above stopped. They stopped like one solid mass, reaching a great way back, even to a part of Kariathiarim; and the water below flowed down into the sea of Araba, the salt sea, until it was entirely gone, and the people stood over against Jericho. 17 Then the priests who carried the Ark of the covenant of the Lord, stood on dry ground, and all the children of Israel crossed over on dry ground, until all the people had finished crossing the Jordan.
9 Behold I have commanded thee; be strong and courageous: fear not, nor be dismayed; for the Lord thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest.
1 Happy the man, who hath not walked by the counsel of the wicked; nor stood in the way of sinners; nor sat in the seat of the scornful. 2 His delight will be in the law of the Lord only. And on his law he will meditate day and night. 3 And he will be like the tree planted by the streams of water, which will yield its fruit in due season, and its fruit shall not fall untimely. In all that he doth he shall be prospered. 4 Not so the wicked; not so. They are like the chaff, which the wind driveth from the face of the earth. 5 Therefore the wicked shall not stand in judgment, nor sinners in the counsel of the righteous. 6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: and the way of the ungodly shall perish.
18 There is no fear in this love. This perfect love excludeth fear. Because fear is accompanied with torment, therefore he who feareth is not perfect in love.
6 and Joshua the son of Nave, and Chaleb the son of Jephonne, two of them who had viewed the land, rent their clothes, 7 and spoke to all the congregation of the Israelites, saying, The land which we viewed is indeed a most excellent land. 8 If the Lord delighteth in us, he will lead us to that land, and give it to us. It is a land flowing with milk and honey. 9 Only rebel not against the Lord, and you need not be afraid of the people of the land, for they are food for us. For their time is over, and the Lord is with us. Fear them not. 10 And when all the congregation ordered to stone them with stones, the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud, over the tabernacle of the testimony, to all the children of Israel.
1 When all the congregation of Israel assembled at Selo, and fixed there the tabernacle of the testimony, and the land was subdued under them, 2 but there still remained among the children of Israel seven tribes who had not received their portions, 3 Joshua said to the children of Israel, How long will you be devoid of courage, to take possession of the land which the Lord our God hath given? 4 Appoint from among you three men of a tribe, and let them arise, and go through the land, and lay before me a draught of it, as it ought to be divided. And when they came to him 5 he distinguished for them seven portions, saying, Let Juda stand. Their boundary is south of this. And let the children of Joseph stand. Their boundary is north of this. 6 Divide ye therefore the land into seven parcels, and bring them to me, and I will cast the lot for you before the 7 Lord our God; for the children of Levi are to have no lot among you; for the priesthood of the Lord is their portion; and Gad and Reuben, and the half of the tribe of Manasses, have received their possession on the eastern bank of the Jordan; that which Moses the servant of the Lord gave them. 8 So the men prepared to set out, and when they were going to traverse the land, Joshua gave them a charge, saying, Go and traverse the land, and come to me, and I will here cast the lots for you before the Lord, at Selo. 9 So they went, and traversed the land, and when they had viewed it, and written it by cities in seven parcels in books, they brought them to Joshua, 10 and Joshua cast lots for them at Selo, before the Lord, 11 and the lot of the tribe of Benjamin came out first, according to their communities, and the bounds of their lot came out between the children of Juda, 12 and the children of Joseph; and these were their borders. On the north their boundary was to go up from the Jordan, back of Jericho, on the north side, and to run westward to the mountain, and come out at Mabdaritis-Baithon; 13 thence the boundary was to run to the border of Louza, back of Louza on the south side of it, this is Baithel; thence the boundary was to run down to Maatarob-Orech, by the high land which is south of the lower Baithoron; 14 thence the boundary was to wind, and proceed to that part on the south which overlooketh the sea, from the mountain before Baithoron southward, and to terminate at Kariathbaal, that is Kariathiarim, a city of the children of Juda. This was the western part. 15 And with regard to the southern part; from a part of Kariathbaal, the boundary was to run to Gasin, by the fountain of water 16 Naphtho; thence the boundary was to run down part of the way, that is, in front of the forest Sonnam, which is the northern part of Emek-raphain; thence down to Gehenna, back of Jebusi, south of it, down to the fountain Rogel; 17 then to turn off to the fountain Baithsamys, and pass on to Galiloth, which is over against the steep of Aithamin; then down to the stone of Baion, one of the sons of Reuben; 18 then to run back of Baithabara, north of it, down to the border at the north end of the sea; 19 and the termination of this boundary was to be at the north bay of the salt sea, and at the south end of the Jordan. This was the southern boundary. 20 And the Jordan was to be the eastern boundary. This was the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, and these their borders round about, according to their communities. 21 And the cities of the Benjaminites according to their communities were Jericho, and Bethegaio, and Amekasis, 22 and Baithabara, and Sara, and Besana, 23 and Aiein, and Phara, and Ephratha, 24 and Karapha, and Kephira, and Moni, and Gabaa, twelve cities with their villages: 25 Gabaon, and Rama, and Beerotha, 26 and Massema, and Miron, and Amoke, 27 and Phira, and Kaphan, and Nakan, and Selekan, and Thareela, 28 and Jebus, this is Jerusalem, and Gabaoth-Jarim, thirteen cities with their villages. This was the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, according to their communities.
1 After the death of Moses, the Lord spoke to Joshua, son of Nave, the lieutenant of Moses, saying, 2 My servant Moses is dead, now therefore arise, and cross the Jordan, thou and all the people, into the land which I give them. 3 Every place, on which you tread with the sole of your feet, I will give you, as I said to Moses. 4 The wilderness, and yonder Antilibanus, to the river, the great river Euphrates, and to the farthest sea, at the setting of the sun, shall be your boundaries. 5 Not a man shall withstand you all the clays of thy life. As I was with Moses, so will I be with thee. I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of good courage; for thou shalt parcel out to this people the land, which I solemnly promised their fathers to give to them. 7 Therefore be strong, and courageous, to watch, and to do as my servant Moses commanded. Thou must not deviate from them, to the right or to the left. That thou mayst clearly understand all that thou art to do: 8 the book of the Law must never be out of thy mouth. Thou must study it day and night, that thou mayst know how to do all that are written. Then shalt thou be prospered; and thou wilt make thy ways prosperous; and then thou shalt have a good understanding. 9 Behold I have commanded thee; be strong and courageous: fear not, nor be dismayed; for the Lord thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest. 10 Upon this Joshua gave orders to the officers of the people, saying; 11 Go through the camp of the people, and give them orders, saying, Prepare all necessary provisions; for in three days you are to cross the Jordan, to go in and take possession of the land which the Lord the God of your fathers giveth you. 12 Then Joshua said to Reuben, and Gad, and to the half of the tribe of Manasses, 13 Remember what Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you saying; The Lord your God hath given you rest, and hath given you this land. 14 Let your wives, and your children, and your cattle abide in the land which he hath given you; but you, all your able bodied men, well equipt, shall cross over before your brethren, and assist them; 15 until the Lord our God shall give your brethren rest, as well as you; and until they possess the land which the Lord our God giveth them. Then you shall return, every one to his possession, which Moses gave you on the east side of the Jordan. 16 Thereupon they answered and said to Joshua, All that thou commandest we will do. And wherever thou sendest us we will go. 17 As we have hearkened to Moses in all things, so will we hearken to thee. Let but the Lord our God be with thee, as he was with Moses, 18 and whosoever shall disobey thee, and not hearken to all thy commands which thou shalt give him let him be put to death. But be thou strong and courageous.
