Joshua 24 

And Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to aShechem, and bcalled for the elders of Israel, and for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers; and they cpresented themselves before God. 2 And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, dYour fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and ethey served other gods. 3 And gI took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his seed, and fgave him Isaac. 4 And I gave unto Isaac Jacob and Esau: and I gave unto hEsau mount Seir, to possess it; but Jacob and his children went down into Egypt.

5 iI sent Moses also and Aaron, and jI plagued Egypt, according to that which I did among them: and afterward I brought you out. 6 And I lbrought your fathers out of Egypt: and ye came unto the sea; kand the Egyptians pursued after your fathers with chariots and horsemen unto the Red sea. 7 And when they cried unto the LORD, he put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them, and covered them; and your eyes have seen what I have done in Egypt: and ye dwelt in the wilderness a long season. 8 And I brought you into the land of the Amorites, which dwelt on the other side Jordan; mand they fought with you: and I gave them into your hand, that ye might possess their land; and I destroyed them from before you.

9 Then nBalak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred against Israel, and osent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you: 10 pBut I would not hearken unto Balaam; qtherefore he blessed you still: so I delivered you out of his hand. 11 And ye went over Jordan, and came unto Jericho: and the men of Jericho fought against you, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; and I delivered them into your hand. 12 And sI sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from before you, even the two kings of the Amorites; but rnot with thy sword, nor with thy bow. 13 And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and tcities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat.

14 xNow therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in wsincerity and in truth: and vput away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and uin Egypt; and serve ye the LORD. 15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or ythe gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: zbut as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. 16 And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods; 17 For the LORD our God, he it is that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed: 18 And the LORD drave out from before us all the people, even the Amorites which dwelt in the land: therefore will we also serve the LORD; for he is our God.

19 And Joshua said unto the people, cYe cannot serve the LORD: for he is an bholy God; he is a jealous God; ahe will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins. 20 eIf ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, dthen he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good. 21 And the people said unto Joshua, Nay; but we will serve the LORD. 22 And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against yourselves that fye have chosen you the LORD, to serve him. And they said, We are witnesses. 23 Now therefore gput away, said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto the LORD God of Israel. 24 And the people said unto Joshua, The LORD our God will we serve, and his voice will we obey. 25 So Joshua hmade a covenant with the people that day, and set them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem.

26 And Joshua kwrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took ja great stone, and iset it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuary of the LORD. 27 And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be la witness unto us; for mit hath heard all the words of the LORD which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God. 28 So Joshua let the people depart, every man unto his inheritance.

29 And it came to pass after these things, that Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being an hundred and ten years old. 30 And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in nTimnath-serah, which is in mount Ephraim, on the north side of the hill of Gaash. 31 And oIsrael served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that overlived Joshua, and which had known all the works of the LORD, that he had done for Israel.

32 And pthe bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel brought up out of Egypt, buried they in Shechem, in a parcel of ground qwhich Jacob bought of the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for an hundred pieces of silver: and it became the inheritance of the children of Joseph. 33 And Eleazar the son of Aaron died; and they buried him in a hill that pertained to rPhinehas his son, which was given him in mount Ephraim.
