Joshua 24 (WEBP)
 Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and called for the elders of Israel, for their heads, for their judges, and for their officers; and they presented themselves before God.
 Joshua said to all the people, “Yahweh, the God of Israel, says, ‘Your fathers lived of old time beyond the River, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nahor. They served other gods.
 I took your father Abraham from beyond the River, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his offspring,§ and gave him Isaac.
 I gave to Isaac Jacob and Esau: and I gave to Esau Mount Seir, to possess it. Jacob and his children went down into Egypt.
 “ ‘I sent Moses and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt, according to that which I did among them: and afterward I brought you out.
 I brought your fathers out of Egypt: and you came to the sea. The Egyptians pursued your fathers with chariots and with horsemen to the Red Sea.
 When they cried out to Yahweh, he put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea on them, and covered them; and your eyes saw what I did in Egypt. You lived in the wilderness many days.
 “ ‘I brought you into the land of the Amorites, that lived beyond the Jordan. They fought with you, and I gave them into your hand. You possessed their land, and I destroyed them from before you.
 Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and fought against Israel. He sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you,
 but I would not listen to Balaam; therefore he blessed you still. So I delivered you out of his hand.
 “ ‘You went over the Jordan, and came to Jericho. The men of Jericho fought against you, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Girgashite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite; and I delivered them into your hand.
 I sent the hornet before you, which drove them out from before you, even the two kings of the Amorites; not with your sword, nor with your bow.
 I gave you a land on which you had not labored, and cities which you didn’t build, and you live in them. You eat of vineyards and olive groves which you didn’t plant.’
 “Now therefore fear Yahweh, and serve him in sincerity and in truth. Put away the gods which your fathers served beyond the River, in Egypt; and serve Yahweh.
 If it seems evil to you to serve Yahweh, choose today whom you will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve Yahweh.”
 The people answered, “Far be it from us that we should forsake Yahweh, to serve other gods;
 for it is Yahweh our God who brought us and our fathers up out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and who did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way in which we went, and among all the peoples through the middle of whom we passed.
 Yahweh drove out from before us all the peoples, even the Amorites who lived in the land. Therefore we also will serve Yahweh; for he is our God.”
 Joshua said to the people, “You can’t serve Yahweh, for he is a holy God. He is a jealous God. He will not forgive your disobedience nor your sins.
 If you forsake Yahweh, and serve foreign gods, then he will turn and do you evil, and consume you, after he has done you good.”
 The people said to Joshua, “No, but we will serve Yahweh.”
 Joshua said to the people, “You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen Yahweh yourselves, to serve him.” They said, “We are witnesses.”
 “Now therefore put away the foreign gods which are among you, and incline your heart to Yahweh, the God of Israel.”
 The people said to Joshua, “We will serve Yahweh our God, and we will listen to his voice.”
 So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and made for them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem.
 Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God; and he took a great stone, and set it up there under the oak that was by the sanctuary of Yahweh.
 Joshua said to all the people, “Behold, this stone shall be a witness against us, for it has heard all Yahweh’s words which he spoke to us. It shall be therefore a witness against you, lest you deny your God.”
 So Joshua sent the people away, each to his own inheritance.
 After these things, Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Yahweh, died, being one hundred ten years old.
 They buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnathserah, which is in the hill country of Ephraim, on the north of the mountain of Gaash.
 Israel served Yahweh all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua, and had known all the work of Yahweh, that he had worked for Israel.
 They buried the bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel brought up out of Egypt, in Shechem, in the parcel of ground which Jacob bought from the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for a hundred pieces of silver.° They became the inheritance of the children of Joseph.
 Eleazar the son of Aaron died. They buried him in the hill of Phinehas his son, which was given him in the hill country of Ephraim.

Joshua 24 (KJVS)
 And Joshua H3091 gathered H622 (8799) all the tribes H7626 of Israel H3478 to Shechem H7927, and called H7121 (8799) for the elders H2205 of Israel H3478, and for their heads H7218, and for their judges H8199 (8802), and for their officers H7860 (8802); and they presented H3320 (8691) themselves before H6440 God H430.
 And Joshua H3091 said H559 (8799) unto all the people H5971, Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068 God H430 of Israel H3478, Your fathers H1 dwelt H3427 (8804) on the other side H5676 of the flood H5104 in old time H5769, [even] Terah H8646, the father H1 of Abraham H85, and the father H1 of Nachor H5152: and they served H5647 (8799) other H312 gods H430.
 And I took H3947 (8799) your father H1 Abraham H85 from the other side H5676 of the flood H5104, and led H3212 (8686) him throughout all the land H776 of Canaan H3667, and multiplied H7235 (8686) his seed H2233, and gave H5414 (8799) him Isaac H3327.
 And I gave H5414 (8799) unto Isaac H3327 Jacob H3290 and Esau H6215: and I gave H5414 (8799) unto Esau H6215 mount H2022 Seir H8165, to possess H3423 (8800) it; but Jacob H3290 and his children H1121 went down H3381 (8804) into Egypt H4714.
 I sent H7971 (8799) Moses H4872 also and Aaron H175, and I plagued H5062 (8799) Egypt H4714, according to that which H834 I did H6213 (8804) among H7130 them: and afterward H310 I brought you out H3318 (8689).
 And I brought H3318 (8686) your fathers H1 out of Egypt H4714: and ye came H935 (8799) unto the sea H3220; and the Egyptians H4714 pursued H7291 (8799) after H310 your fathers H1 with chariots H7393 and horsemen H6571 unto the Red H5488 sea H3220.
 And when they cried H6817 (8799) unto the LORD H3068, he put H7760 (8799) darkness H3990 between you and the Egyptians H4713, and brought H935 (8686) the sea H3220 upon them, and covered H3680 (8762) them; and your eyes H5869 have seen H7200 (8799) what I have done H6213 (8804) in Egypt H4714: and ye dwelt H3427 (8799) in the wilderness H4057 a long H7227 season H3117.
 And I brought H935 (8686) you into the land H776 of the Amorites H567, which dwelt H3427 (8802) on the other side H5676 Jordan H3383; and they fought H3898 (8735) with you: and I gave H5414 (8799) them into your hand H3027, that ye might possess H3423 (8799) their land H776; and I destroyed H8045 (8686) them from before H6440 you.
 Then Balak H1111 the son H1121 of Zippor H6834, king H4428 of Moab H4124, arose H6965 (8799) and warred H3898 (8735) against Israel H3478, and sent H7971 (8799) and called H7121 (8799) Balaam H1109 the son H1121 of Beor H1160 to curse H7043 (8763) you:
 But I would H14 (8804) not hearken H8085 (8800) unto Balaam H1109; therefore he blessed H1288 (8762) you still H1288 (8800): so I delivered H5337 (8686) you out of his hand H3027.
 And ye went over H5674 (8799) Jordan H3383, and came H935 (8799) unto Jericho H3405: and the men H1167 of Jericho H3405 fought H3898 (8735) against you, the Amorites H567, and the Perizzites H6522, and the Canaanites H3669, and the Hittites H2850, and the Girgashites H1622, the Hivites H2340, and the Jebusites H2983; and I delivered H5414 (8799) them into your hand H3027.
 And I sent H7971 (8799) the hornet H6880 before H6440 you, which drave them out H1644 (8762) from before H6440 you, [even] the two H8147 kings H4428 of the Amorites H567; [but] not with thy sword H2719, nor with thy bow H7198.
 And I have given H5414 (8799) you a land H776 for which ye did not labour H3021 (8804), and cities H5892 which ye built H1129 (8804) not, and ye dwell H3427 (8799) in them; of the vineyards H3754 and oliveyards H2132 which ye planted H5193 (8804) not do ye eat H398 (8802).
 Now therefore fear H3372 (8798) the LORD H3068, and serve H5647 (8798) him in sincerity H8549 and in truth H571: and put away H5493 (8685) the gods H430 which your fathers H1 served H5647 (8804) on the other side H5676 of the flood H5104, and in Egypt H4714; and serve H5647 (8798) ye the LORD H3068.
 And if it seem evil H7489 (8804) unto you H4310 to serve H5647 (8800) the LORD H3068, choose H977 (8798) you this day H3117 whom H5869 ye will serve H5647 (8799); whether the gods H430 which your fathers H1 served H5647 (8804) that [were] on the other side H5676 of the flood H5104, or the gods H430 of the Amorites H567, in whose land H776 ye dwell H3427 (8802): but as for me and my house H1004, we will serve H5647 (8799) the LORD H3068.
 And the people H5971 answered H6030 (8799) and said H559 (8799), God forbid H2486 that we should forsake H5800 (8800) the LORD H3068, to serve H5647 (8800) other H312 gods H430;
 For the LORD H3068 our God H430, he [it is] that brought us up H5927 (8688) and our fathers H1 out of the land H776 of Egypt H4714, from the house H1004 of bondage H5650, and which did H6213 (8804) those great H1419 signs H226 in our sight H5869, and preserved H8104 (8799) us in all the way H1870 wherein we went H1980 (8804), and among all the people H5971 through H7130 whom we passed H5674 (8804):
 And the LORD H3068 drave out H1644 (8762) from before H6440 us all the people H5971, even the Amorites H567 which dwelt H3427 (8802) in the land H776: [therefore] will we also serve H5647 (8799) the LORD H3068; for he [is] our God H430.
 And Joshua H3091 said H559 (8799) unto the people H5971, Ye cannot H3201 (8799) serve H5647 (8800) the LORD H3068: for he [is] an holy H6918 God H430; he [is] a jealous H7072 God H410; he will not forgive H5375 (8799) your transgressions H6588 nor your sins H2403.
 If ye forsake H5800 (8799) the LORD H3068, and serve H5647 (8804) strange H5236 gods H430, then he will turn H7725 (8804) and do you hurt H7489 (8689), and consume H3615 (8765) you, after H310 that he hath done you good H3190 (8689).
 And the people H5971 said H559 (8799) unto Joshua H3091, Nay; but we will serve H5647 (8799) the LORD H3068.
 And Joshua H3091 said H559 (8799) unto the people H5971, Ye [are] witnesses H5707 against yourselves that ye have chosen H977 (8804) you the LORD H3068, to serve H5647 (8800) him. And they said H559 (8799), [We are] witnesses H5707.
 Now therefore put away H5493 (8685), [said he], the strange H5236 gods H430 which [are] among H7130 you, and incline H5186 (8685) your heart H3824 unto the LORD H3068 God H430 of Israel H3478.
 And the people H5971 said H559 (8799) unto Joshua H3091, The LORD H3068 our God H430 will we serve H5647 (8799), and his voice H6963 will we obey H8085 (8799).
 So Joshua H3091 made H3772 (8799) a covenant H1285 with the people H5971 that day H3117, and set H7760 (8799) them a statute H2706 and an ordinance H4941 in Shechem H7927.
 And Joshua H3091 wrote H3789 (8799) these words H1697 in the book H5612 of the law H8451 of God H430, and took H3947 (8799) a great H1419 stone H68, and set it up H6965 (8686) there under an oak H427, that [was] by the sanctuary H4720 of the LORD H3068.
 And Joshua H3091 said H559 (8799) unto all the people H5971, Behold, this stone H68 shall be a witness H5713 unto us; for it hath heard H8085 (8804) all the words H561 of the LORD H3068 which he spake H1696 (8765) unto us: it shall be therefore a witness H5713 unto you, lest ye deny H3584 (8762) your God H430.
 So Joshua H3091 let the people H5971 depart H7971 (8762), every man H376 unto his inheritance H5159.
 And it came to pass after H310 these things H1697, that Joshua H3091 the son H1121 of Nun H5126, the servant H5650 of the LORD H3068, died H4191 (8799), [being] an hundred H3967 and ten H6235 years H8141 old H1121.
 And they buried H6912 (8799) him in the border H1366 of his inheritance H5159 in Timnathserah H8556, which [is] in mount H2022 Ephraim H669, on the north side H6828 of the hill H2022 of Gaash H1608.
 And Israel H3478 served H5647 (8799) the LORD H3068 all the days H3117 of Joshua H3091, and all the days H3117 of the elders H2205 that overlived H748 (8689) H3117 H310 Joshua H3091, and which had known H3045 (8804) all the works H4639 of the LORD H3068, that he had done H6213 (8804) for Israel H3478.
 And the bones H6106 of Joseph H3130, which the children H1121 of Israel H3478 brought up H5927 (8689) out of Egypt H4714, buried H6912 (8804) they in Shechem H7927, in a parcel H2513 of ground H7704 which Jacob H3290 bought H7069 (8804) of the sons H1121 of Hamor H2544 the father H1 of Shechem H7927 for an hundred H3967 pieces of silver H7192: and it became the inheritance H5159 of the children H1121 of Joseph H3130.
 And Eleazar H499 the son H1121 of Aaron H175 died H4191 (8804); and they buried H6912 (8799) him in a hill H1389 [that pertained to] Phinehas H6372 his son H1121, which was given H5414 (8738) him in mount H2022 Ephraim H669.

 And Joshua saith unto all the people, ‘Thus said Jehovah, God of Israel, Beyond the River have your fathers dwelt of old-Terah father of Abraham and father of Nachor-and they serve other gods;
 and I take your father Abraham from beyond the River, and cause him to go through all the land of Canaan, and multiply his seed, and give to him Isaac.

 ‘And now, fear ye Jehovah, and serve Him, in perfection and in truth, and turn aside the gods which your fathers served beyond the River, and in Egypt, and serve ye Jehovah;
 and if wrong in your eyes to serve Jehovah-choose for you to-day whom ye do serve;-whether the gods whom your fathers served, which are beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorite in whose land ye are dwelling; and I and my house-we serve Jehovah.’
 And the people answer and say, ‘Far be it from us to forsake Jehovah, to serve other gods;
 for Jehovah our God is He who is bringing us and our fathers up out of the land of Egypt, out of a house of servants, and who hath done before our eyes these great signs, and doth keep us in all the way in which we have gone, and among all the peoples through whose midst we passed;
 and Jehovah casteth out the whole of the peoples, even the Amorite inhabiting the land, from our presence; we also do serve Jehovah, for He is our God.’
