第十七章

 1 玛拿西是约瑟的长子,他的支派拈阄所得之地记在下面。至于玛拿西的长子基列之父(父或作主)玛吉,因为是勇士就得了基列和巴珊。 
 2 玛拿西其余的子孙,按着宗族拈阄分地,就是亚比以谢子孙,希勒子孙,亚斯列子孙,示剑子孙,希弗子孙,示米大子孙。这些按着宗族,都是约瑟儿子玛拿西子孙的男丁。 
 3 玛拿西的玄孙,玛吉的曾孙,基列的孙子,希弗的儿子西罗非哈没有儿子,只有女儿。他的女儿名叫玛拉,挪阿,曷拉,密迦,得撒。 
 4 她们来到祭司以利亚撒和嫩的儿子约书亚并众首领面前,说,耶和华曾吩咐摩西在我们弟兄中分给我们产业。于是约书亚照耶和华所吩咐的,在她们伯叔中,把产业分给她们。 
 5 除了约旦河东的基列和巴珊地之外,还有十分地归玛拿西, 
 6 因为玛拿西的孙女们在玛拿西的孙子中得了产业。基列地是属玛拿西其余的子孙。 
 7 玛拿西的境界,从亚设起,到示剑前的密米他,往北到隐他普亚居民之地。 
 8 他普亚地归玛拿西,只是玛拿西境界上的他普亚城归以法莲子孙。 
 9 其界下到加拿河的南边。在玛拿西城邑中的这些城邑都归以法莲。玛拿西的地界是在河北直通到海为止。 
 10 南归以法莲,北归玛拿西,以海为界。北边到亚设,东边到以萨迦。 
 11 玛拿西在以萨迦和亚设境内,有伯善和属伯善的镇市,以伯莲和属以伯莲的镇市,多珥的居民和属多珥的镇市。又有三处山冈,就是隐多珥和属隐多珥的镇市。他纳的居民和属他纳的镇市,米吉多的居民和属米吉多的镇市。 
 12 只是玛拿西子孙不能赶出这些城的居民,迦南人偏要住在那地。 
 13 及至以色列人强盛了,就使迦南人作苦工,没有把他们全然赶出。 
 14 约瑟的子孙对约书亚说,耶和华到如今既然赐福与我们,我们也族大人多,你为什么仅将一阄一段之地分给我们为业呢? 
 15 约书亚说,你们如果族大人多,嫌以法莲山地窄小,就可以上比利洗人,利乏音人之地,在树林中砍伐树木。 
 16 约瑟的子孙说,那山地容不下我们,并且住平原的迦南人,就是住伯善和属伯善的镇市,并住耶斯列平原的人,都有铁车。 
 17 约书亚对约瑟家,就是以法莲和玛拿西人,说,你是族大人多,并且强盛,不可仅有一阄之地, 
 18 山地也要归你,虽是树林,你也可以砍伐。靠近之地必归你。迦南人虽有铁车,虽是强盛,你也能把他们赶出去。

Chapter 17

1 There was also a lot for the tribe of Manasseh; for he was the firstborn of Joseph; to wit, for Machir the firstborn of Manasseh, the father of Gilead: because he was a man of war, therefore he had Gilead and Bashan.
2 There was also a lot for the rest of the children of Manasseh by their families; for the children of Abiezer, and for the children of Helek, and for the children of Asriel, and for the children of Shechem, and for the children of Hepher, and for the children of Shemida: these were the male children of Manasseh the son of Joseph by their families.
3 But Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, had no sons, but daughters: and these are the names of his daughters, Mahlah, and Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.
4 And they came near before Eleazar the priest, and before Joshua the son of Nun, and before the princes, saying, The LORD commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our brethren. Therefore according to the commandment of the LORD he gave them an inheritance among the brethren of their father.
5 And there fell ten portions to Manasseh, beside the land of Gilead and Bashan, which were on the other side Jordan;
6 Because the daughters of Manasseh had an inheritance among his sons: and the rest of Manasseh's sons had the land of Gilead.
7 And the coast of Manasseh was from Asher to Michmethah, that lieth before Shechem; and the border went along on the right hand unto the inhabitants of Entappuah.
8 Now Manasseh had the land of Tappuah: but Tappuah on the border of Manasseh belonged to the children of Ephraim;
9 And the coast descended unto the river Kanah, southward of the river: these cities of Ephraim are among the cities of Manasseh: the coast of Manasseh also was on the north side of the river, and the outgoings of it were at the sea:
10 Southward it was Ephraim's, and northward it was Manasseh's, and the sea is his border; and they met together in Asher on the north, and in Issachar on the east.
11 And Manasseh had in Issachar and in Asher Bethshean and her towns, and Ibleam and her towns, and the inhabitants of Dor and her towns, and the inhabitants of Endor and her towns, and the inhabitants of Taanach and her towns, and the inhabitants of Megiddo and her towns, even three countries.
12 Yet the children of Manasseh could not drive out the inhabitants of those cities; but the Canaanites would dwell in that land.
13 Yet it came to pass, when the children of Israel were waxen strong, that they put the Canaanites to tribute; but did not utterly drive them out.
14 And the children of Joseph spake unto Joshua, saying, Why hast thou given me but one lot and one portion to inherit, seeing I am a great people, forasmuch as the LORD hath blessed me hitherto?
15 And Joshua answered them, If thou be a great people, then get thee up to the wood country, and cut down for thyself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim be too narrow for thee.
16 And the children of Joseph said, The hill is not enough for us: and all the Canaanites that dwell in the land of the valley have chariots of iron, both they who are of Bethshean and her towns, and they who are of the valley of Jezreel.
17 And Joshua spake unto the house of Joseph, even to Ephraim and to Manasseh, saying, Thou art a great people, and hast great power: thou shalt not have one lot only:
18 But the mountain shall be thine; for it is a wood, and thou shalt cut it down: and the outgoings of it shall be thine: for thou shalt drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots, and though they be strong.

第十八章

 1 以色列的全会众都聚集在示罗,把会幕设立在那里,那地已经被他们制伏了。 
 2 以色列人中其余的七个支派还没有分给他们地业。 
 3 约书亚对以色列人说,耶和华你们列祖的神所赐给你们的地,你们耽延不去得,要到几时呢? 
 4 你们每支派当选举三个人,我要打发他们去,他们就要起身走遍那地,按着各支派应得的地业写明(或作画图),就回到我这里来。 
 5 他们要将地分作七分。犹大仍在南方,住在他的境内。约瑟家仍在北方,住在他的境内。 
 6 你们要将地分作七分,写明了拿到我这里来。我要在耶和华我们神面前,为你们拈阄。 
 7 利未人在你们中间没有分,因为供耶和华祭司的职任就是他们的产业。迦得支派,流便支派,和玛拿西半支派已经在约旦河东得了地业,就是耶和华仆人摩西所给他们的。 
 8 划地势的人起身去的时候,约书亚嘱咐他们说,你们去走遍那地,划明地势,就回到我这里来。我要在示罗这里,耶和华面前,为你们拈阄。 
 9 他们就去了,走遍那地,按着城邑分作七分,写在册子上,回到示罗营中见约书亚。 
 10 约书亚就在示罗,耶和华面前,为他们拈阄。约书亚在那里,按着以色列人的支派,将地分给他们。 
 11 便雅悯支派,按着宗族拈阄所得之地,是在犹大,约瑟子孙中间。 
 12 他们的北界是从约旦河起,往上贴近耶利哥的北边。又往西通过山地,直到伯亚文的旷野。 
 13 从那里往南接连到路斯,贴近路斯(路斯就是伯特利),又下到亚他绿亚达,靠近下伯和仑南边的山。 
 14 从那里往西,又转向南,从伯和仑南对面的山,直达到犹大人的城基列巴力(基列巴力就是基列耶琳)。这是西界。 
 15 南界是从基列耶琳的尽边起,往西达到尼弗多亚的水源。 
 16 又下到欣嫩子谷对面山的尽边,就是利乏音谷北边的山。又下到欣嫩谷,贴近耶布斯的南边。又下到隐罗结。 
 17 又往北通到隐示麦,达到亚都冥坡对面的基利绿。又下到流便之子波罕的磐石。 
 18 又接连到亚拉巴对面,往北下到亚拉巴。 
 19 又接连到伯曷拉的北边,直通到盐海的北汊,就是约旦河的南头。这是南界。 
 20 东界是约旦河。这是便雅悯人按着宗族,照他们四围的交界所得的地业。 
 21 便雅悯支派按着宗族所得的城邑就是,耶利哥,伯曷拉,伊麦基悉, 
 22 伯亚拉巴,洗玛脸,伯特利, 
 23 亚文,巴拉,俄弗拉, 
 24 基法阿摩尼,俄弗尼,迦巴,共十二座城,还有属城的村庄。 
 25 又有基遍,拉玛,比录, 
 26 米斯巴,基非拉,摩撒, 
 27 利坚,伊利毗勒,他拉拉, 
 28 洗拉,以利弗,耶布斯(耶布斯就是耶路撒冷),基比亚,基列,共十四座城,还有属城的村庄。这是便雅悯人按着宗族所得的地业。

Chapter 18

1 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled together at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the congregation there. And the land was subdued before them.
2 And there remained among the children of Israel seven tribes, which had not yet received their inheritance.
3 And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long are ye slack to go to possess the land, which the LORD God of your fathers hath given you?
4 Give out from among you three men for each tribe: and I will send them, and they shall rise, and go through the land, and describe it according to the inheritance of them; and they shall come again to me.
5 And they shall divide it into seven parts: Judah shall abide in their coast on the south, and the house of Joseph shall abide in their coasts on the north.
6 Ye shall therefore describe the land into seven parts, and bring the description hither to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD our God.
7 But the Levites have no part among you; for the priesthood of the LORD is their inheritance: and Gad, and Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh, have received their inheritance beyond Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them.
8 And the men arose, and went away: and Joshua charged them that went to describe the land, saying, Go and walk through the land, and describe it, and come again to me, that I may here cast lots for you before the LORD in Shiloh.
9 And the men went and passed through the land, and described it by cities into seven parts in a book, and came again to Joshua to the host at Shiloh.
10 And Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD: and there Joshua divided the land unto the children of Israel according to their divisions.
11 And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up according to their families: and the coast of their lot came forth between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph.
12 And their border on the north side was from Jordan; and the border went up to the side of Jericho on the north side, and went up through the mountains westward; and the goings out thereof were at the wilderness of Bethaven.
13 And the border went over from thence toward Luz, to the side of Luz, which is Bethel, southward; and the border descended to Atarothadar, near the hill that lieth on the south side of the nether Bethhoron.
14 And the border was drawn thence, and compassed the corner of the sea southward, from the hill that lieth before Bethhoron southward; and the goings out thereof were at Kirjathbaal, which is Kirjathjearim, a city of the children of Judah: this was the west quarter.
15 And the south quarter was from the end of Kirjathjearim, and the border went out on the west, and went out to the well of waters of Nephtoah:
16 And the border came down to the end of the mountain that lieth before the valley of the son of Hinnom, and which is in the valley of the giants on the north, and descended to the valley of Hinnom, to the side of Jebusi on the south, and descended to Enrogel,
17 And was drawn from the north, and went forth to Enshemesh, and went forth toward Geliloth, which is over against the going up of Adummim, and descended to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben,
18 And passed along toward the side over against Arabah northward, and went down unto Arabah:
19 And the border passed along to the side of Bethhoglah northward: and the outgoings of the border were at the north bay of the salt sea at the south end of Jordan: this was the south coast.
20 And Jordan was the border of it on the east side. This was the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the coasts thereof round about, according to their families.
21 Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin according to their families were Jericho, and Bethhoglah, and the valley of Keziz.
22 And Betharabah, and Zemaraim, and Bethel,
23 And Avim, and Parah, and Ophrah,
24 And Chepharhaammonai, and Ophni, and Gaba; twelve cities with their villages:
25 Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth,
26 And Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah,
27 And Rekem, and Irpeel, and Taralah,
28 And Zelah, Eleph, and Jebusi, which is Jerusalem, Gibeath, and Kirjath; fourteen cities with their villages. This is the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families.

Chapter 19

1 And the second lot came forth to Simeon, even for the tribe of the children of Simeon according to their families: and their inheritance was within the inheritance of the children of Judah.
2 And they had in their inheritance Beersheba, and Sheba, and Moladah,
3 And Hazarshual, and Balah, and Azem,
4 And Eltolad, and Bethul, and Hormah,
5 And Ziklag, and Bethmarcaboth, and Hazarsusah,
6 And Bethlebaoth, and Sharuhen; thirteen cities and their villages:
7 Ain, Remmon, and Ether, and Ashan; four cities and their villages:
8 And all the villages that were round about these cities to Baalathbeer, Ramath of the south. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Simeon according to their families.
9 Out of the portion of the children of Judah was the inheritance of the children of Simeon: for the part of the children of Judah was too much for them: therefore the children of Simeon had their inheritance within the inheritance of them.
10 And the third lot came up for the children of Zebulun according to their families: and the border of their inheritance was unto Sarid:
11 And their border went up toward the sea, and Maralah, and reached to Dabbasheth, and reached to the river that is before Jokneam;
12 And turned from Sarid eastward toward the sunrising unto the border of Chislothtabor, and then goeth out to Daberath, and goeth up to Japhia.
13 And from thence passeth on along on the east to Gittahhepher, to Ittahkazin, and goeth out to Remmonmethoar to Neah;
14 And the border compasseth it on the north side to Hannathon: and the outgoings thereof are in the valley of Jiphthahel:
15 And Kattath, and Nahallal, and Shimron, and Idalah, and Bethlehem: twelve cities with their villages.
16 This is the inheritance of the children of Zebulun according to their families, these cities with their villages.
17 And the fourth lot came out to Issachar, for the children of Issachar according to their families.
18 And their border was toward Jezreel, and Chesulloth, and Shunem,
19 And Haphraim, and Shihon, and Anaharath,
20 And Rabbith, and Kishion, and Abez,
21 And Remeth, and Engannim, and Enhaddah, and Bethpazzez;
22 And the coast reacheth to Tabor, and Shahazimah, and Bethshemesh; and the outgoings of their border were at Jordan: sixteen cities with their villages.
23 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Issachar according to their families, the cities and their villages.
24 And the fifth lot came out for the tribe of the children of Asher according to their families.
25 And their border was Helkath, and Hali, and Beten, and Achshaph,
26 And Alammelech, and Amad, and Misheal; and reacheth to Carmel westward, and to Shihorlibnath;
27 And turneth toward the sunrising to Bethdagon, and reacheth to Zebulun, and to the valley of Jiphthahel toward the north side of Bethemek, and Neiel, and goeth out to Cabul on the left hand,
28 And Hebron, and Rehob, and Hammon, and Kanah, even unto great Zidon;
29 And then the coast turneth to Ramah, and to the strong city Tyre; and the coast turneth to Hosah; and the outgoings thereof are at the sea from the coast to Achzib:
30 Ummah also, and Aphek, and Rehob: twenty and two cities with their villages.
31 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Asher according to their families, these cities with their villages.
32 The sixth lot came out to the children of Naphtali, even for the children of Naphtali according to their families.
33 And their coast was from Heleph, from Allon to Zaanannim, and Adami, Nekeb, and Jabneel, unto Lakum; and the outgoings thereof were at Jordan:
34 And then the coast turneth westward to Aznothtabor, and goeth out from thence to Hukkok, and reacheth to Zebulun on the south side, and reacheth to Asher on the west side, and to Judah upon Jordan toward the sunrising.
35 And the fenced cities are Ziddim, Zer, and Hammath, Rakkath, and Chinnereth,
36 And Adamah, and Ramah, and Hazor,
37 And Kedesh, and Edrei, and Enhazor,
38 And Iron, and Migdalel, Horem, and Bethanath, and Bethshemesh; nineteen cities with their villages.
39 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Naphtali according to their families, the cities and their villages.
40 And the seventh lot came out for the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families.
41 And the coast of their inheritance was Zorah, and Eshtaol, and Irshemesh,
42 And Shaalabbin, and Ajalon, and Jethlah,
43 And Elon, and Thimnathah, and Ekron,
44 And Eltekeh, and Gibbethon, and Baalath,
45 And Jehud, and Beneberak, and Gathrimmon,
46 And Mejarkon, and Rakkon, with the border before Japho.
47 And the coast of the children of Dan went out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their father.
48 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families, these cities with their villages.
49 When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them:
50 According to the word of the LORD they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.
51 These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the LORD, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. So they made an end of dividing the country.

第二十章

 1 耶和华晓谕约书亚说, 
 2 你吩咐以色列人说,你们要照着我借摩西所晓谕你们的,为自己设立逃城, 
 3 使那无心而误杀人的,可以逃到那里。这些城可以作你们逃避报血仇人的地方。 
 4 那杀人的要逃到这些城中的一座城,站在城门口,将他的事情说给城内的长老们听。他们就把他收进城里,给他地方,使他住在他们中间。 
 5 若是报血仇的追了他来,长老不可将他交在报血仇的手里。因为他是素无仇恨,无心杀了人的。 
 6 他要住在那城里,站在会众面前听审判,等到那时的大祭司死了,杀人的才可以回到本城本家,就是他所逃出来的那城。 
 7 于是,以色列人在拿弗他利山地分定加利利的基低斯。在以法莲山地分定示剑。在犹大山地分定基列亚巴(基列亚巴就是希伯仑)。 
 8 又在约旦河外耶利哥东,从流便支派中,在旷野的平原,设立比悉。从迦得支派中设立基列的拉末。从玛拿西支派中设立巴珊的哥兰。 
 9 这都是为以色列众人和在他们中间寄居的外人所分定的地邑,使误杀人的都可以逃到那里,不死在报血仇人的手中,等他站在会众面前听审判。

Chapter 20

1 The LORD also spake unto Joshua, saying,
2 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, Appoint out for you cities of refuge, whereof I spake unto you by the hand of Moses:
3 That the slayer that killeth any person unawares and unwittingly may flee thither: and they shall be your refuge from the avenger of blood.
4 And when he that doth flee unto one of those cities shall stand at the entering of the gate of the city, and shall declare his cause in the ears of the elders of that city, they shall take him into the city unto them, and give him a place, that he may dwell among them.
5 And if the avenger of blood pursue after him, then they shall not deliver the slayer up into his hand; because he smote his neighbour unwittingly, and hated him not beforetime.
6 And he shall dwell in that city, until he stand before the congregation for judgment, and until the death of the high priest that shall be in those days: then shall the slayer return, and come unto his own city, and unto his own house, unto the city from whence he fled.
7 And they appointed Kedesh in Galilee in mount Naphtali, and Shechem in mount Ephraim, and Kirjatharba, which is Hebron, in the mountain of Judah.
8 And on the other side Jordan by Jericho eastward, they assigned Bezer in the wilderness upon the plain out of the tribe of Reuben, and Ramoth in Gilead out of the tribe of Gad, and Golan in Bashan out of the tribe of Manasseh.
9 These were the cities appointed for all the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them, that whosoever killeth any person at unawares might flee thither, and not die by the hand of the avenger of blood, until he stood before the congregation.

第二十一章
(图)约书亚记 Book of Joshua (17-24)

 1 那时,利未人的众族长来到祭司以利亚撒和嫩的儿子约书亚,并以色列各支派的族长面前, 
 2 在迦南地的示罗对他们说,从前耶和华借着摩西吩咐给我们城邑居住,并城邑的郊野可以牧养我们的牲畜。 
 3 于是以色列人照耶和华所吩咐的,从自己的地业中,将以下所记的城邑和城邑的郊野给了利未人。

 45 耶和华应许赐福给以色列家的话一句也没有落空,都应验了。

Chapter 21

1 Then came near the heads of the fathers of the Levites unto Eleazar the priest, and unto Joshua the son of Nun, and unto the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel;
2 And they spake unto them at Shiloh in the land of Canaan, saying, The LORD commanded by the hand of Moses to give us cities to dwell in, with the suburbs thereof for our cattle.
3 And the children of Israel gave unto the Levites out of their inheritance, at the commandment of the LORD, these cities and their suburbs.
4 And the lot came out for the families of the Kohathites: and the children of Aaron the priest, which were of the Levites, had by lot out of the tribe of Judah, and out of the tribe of Simeon, and out of the tribe of Benjamin, thirteen cities.
5 And the rest of the children of Kohath had by lot out of the families of the tribe of Ephraim, and out of the tribe of Dan, and out of the half tribe of Manasseh, ten cities.
6 And the children of Gershon had by lot out of the families of the tribe of Issachar, and out of the tribe of Asher, and out of the tribe of Naphtali, and out of the half tribe of Manasseh in Bashan, thirteen cities.
7 The children of Merari by their families had out of the tribe of Reuben, and out of the tribe of Gad, and out of the tribe of Zebulun, twelve cities.
8 And the children of Israel gave by lot unto the Levites these cities with their suburbs, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.
9 And they gave out of the tribe of the children of Judah, and out of the tribe of the children of Simeon, these cities which are here mentioned by name,
10 Which the children of Aaron, being of the families of the Kohathites, who were of the children of Levi, had: for theirs was the first lot.
11 And they gave them the city of Arba the father of Anak, which city is Hebron, in the hill country of Judah, with the suburbs thereof round about it.
12 But the fields of the city, and the villages thereof, gave they to Caleb the son of Jephunneh for his possession.
13 Thus they gave to the children of Aaron the priest Hebron with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Libnah with her suburbs,
14 And Jattir with her suburbs, and Eshtemoa with her suburbs,
15 And Holon with her suburbs, and Debir with her suburbs,
16 And Ain with her suburbs, and Juttah with her suburbs, and Bethshemesh with her suburbs; nine cities out of those two tribes.
17 And out of the tribe of Benjamin, Gibeon with her suburbs, Geba with her suburbs,
18 Anathoth with her suburbs, and Almon with her suburbs; four cities.
19 All the cities of the children of Aaron, the priests, were thirteen cities with their suburbs.
20 And the families of the children of Kohath, the Levites which remained of the children of Kohath, even they had the cities of their lot out of the tribe of Ephraim.
21 For they gave them Shechem with her suburbs in mount Ephraim, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Gezer with her suburbs,
22 And Kibzaim with her suburbs, and Bethhoron with her suburbs; four cities.
23 And out of the tribe of Dan, Eltekeh with her suburbs, Gibbethon with her suburbs,
24 Aijalon with her suburbs, Gathrimmon with her suburbs; four cities.
25 And out of the half tribe of Manasseh, Tanach with her suburbs, and Gathrimmon with her suburbs; two cities.
26 All the cities were ten with their suburbs for the families of the children of Kohath that remained.
27 And unto the children of Gershon, of the families of the Levites, out of the other half tribe of Manasseh they gave Golan in Bashan with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Beeshterah with her suburbs; two cities.
28 And out of the tribe of Issachar, Kishon with her suburbs, Dabareh with her suburbs,
29 Jarmuth with her suburbs, Engannim with her suburbs; four cities.
30 And out of the tribe of Asher, Mishal with her suburbs, Abdon with her suburbs,
31 Helkath with her suburbs, and Rehob with her suburbs; four cities.
32 And out of the tribe of Naphtali, Kedesh in Galilee with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Hammothdor with her suburbs, and Kartan with her suburbs; three cities.
33 All the cities of the Gershonites according to their families were thirteen cities with their suburbs.
34 And unto the families of the children of Merari, the rest of the Levites, out of the tribe of Zebulun, Jokneam with her suburbs, and Kartah with her suburbs,
35 Dimnah with her suburbs, Nahalal with her suburbs; four cities.
36 And out of the tribe of Reuben, Bezer with her suburbs, and Jahazah with her suburbs,
37 Kedemoth with her suburbs, and Mephaath with her suburbs; four cities.
38 And out of the tribe of Gad, Ramoth in Gilead with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Mahanaim with her suburbs,
39 Heshbon with her suburbs, Jazer with her suburbs; four cities in all.
40 So all the cities for the children of Merari by their families, which were remaining of the families of the Levites, were by their lot twelve cities.
41 All the cities of the Levites within the possession of the children of Israel were forty and eight cities with their suburbs.
42 These cities were every one with their suburbs round about them: thus were all these cities.
43 And the LORD gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein.
44 And the LORD gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand.
45 There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.

第二十二章

 1 当时,约书亚召了流便人,迦得人,和玛拿西半支派的人来, 
 2 对他们说,耶和华仆人摩西所吩咐你们的,你们都遵守了。我所吩咐你们的,你们也都听从了。 
 3 你们这许多日子,总没有撇离你们的弟兄,直到今日,并守了耶和华你们神所吩咐你们当守的。 
 4 如今耶和华你们神照着他所应许的,使你们弟兄得享平安,现在可以转回你们的帐棚,到耶和华的仆人摩西在约旦河东所赐你们为业之地。 
 5 只要切切地谨慎遵行耶和华仆人摩西所吩咐你们的诫命律法,爱耶和华你们的神,行他一切的道,守他的诫命,专靠他,尽心尽性事奉他。 
 6 于是约书亚为他们祝福,打发他们去,他们就回自己的帐棚去了。 
 7 玛拿西那半支派,摩西早已在巴珊分给他们地业。这半支派,约书亚在约旦河西,在他们弟兄中,分给他们地业。约书亚打发他们回帐棚的时候为他们祝福, 
 8 对他们说,你们带许多财物,许多牲畜和金,银,铜,铁,并许多衣服,回你们的帐棚去,要将你们从仇敌夺来的物,与你们众弟兄同分。 
 9 于是流便人,迦得人,玛拿西半支派的人从迦南地的示罗起行,离开以色列人,回往他们得为业的基列地,就是照耶和华借摩西所吩咐的得了为业之地。 
 10 流便人,迦得人,和玛拿西半支派的人到了靠近约旦河的一带迦南地,就在约旦河那里筑了一座坛。那坛看着高大。 
 11 以色列人听说流便人,迦得人,玛拿西半支派的人靠近约旦河边,在迦南地属以色列人的那边筑了一座坛。 
 12 全会众一听见,就聚集在示罗,要上去攻打他们。 
 13 以色列人打发祭司以利亚撒的儿子非尼哈,往基列地去见流便人,迦得人,玛拿西半支派的人。 
 14 又打发十个首领与非尼哈同去,就是以色列每支派的一个首领,都是以色列军中的统领。 
 15 他们到了基列地,见流便人,迦得人,和玛拿西半支派的人,对他们说, 
 16 耶和华全会众这样说,你们今日转去不跟从耶和华,干犯以色列的神,为自己筑一座坛,悖逆了耶和华,这犯的是什么罪呢? 
 17 从前拜毗珥的罪孽还算小吗?虽然瘟疫临到耶和华的会众,到今日我们还没有洗净这罪。 
 18 你们今日竟转去不跟从耶和华吗?你们今日既悖逆耶和华,明日他必向以色列全会众发怒。 
 19 你们所得为业之地,若嫌不洁净,就可以过到耶和华之地,就是耶和华的帐幕所住之地,在我们中间得地业。只是不可悖逆耶和华,也不可得罪我们,在耶和华我们神的坛以外为自己筑坛。 
 20 从前谢拉的曾孙亚干岂不是在那当灭的物上犯了罪,就有忿怒临到以色列全会众吗?那人在所犯的罪中不独一人死亡。 
 21 于是流便人,迦得人,玛拿西半支派的人回答以色列军中的统领说, 
 22 大能者神耶和华。大能者神耶和华。他是知道的。以色列人也必知道。我们若有悖逆的意思,或是干犯耶和华(愿你今日不保佑我们), 
 23 为自己筑坛,要转去不跟从耶和华,或是要将燔祭,素祭,平安祭献在坛上,愿耶和华亲自讨我们的罪。 
 24 我们行这事并非无故,是特意作的,说,恐怕日后你们的子孙对我们的子孙说,你们与耶和华以色列的神有何关涉呢? 
 25 因为耶和华把约旦河定为我们和你们这流便人,迦得人的交界,你们与耶和华无分了。这样,你们的子孙就使我们的子孙不再敬畏耶和华了。 
 26 因此我们说,不如为自己筑一座坛,不是为献燔祭,也不是为献别的祭, 
 27 乃是为你我中间和你我后人中间作证据,好叫我们也在耶和华面前献燔祭,平安祭,和别的祭事奉他,免得你们的子孙日后对我们的子孙说,你们与耶和华无分了。 
 28 所以我们说,日后你们对我们,或对我们的后人这样说,我们就可以回答说,你们看我们列祖所筑的坛是耶和华坛的样式。这并不是为献燔祭,也不是为献别的祭,乃是为作你我中间的证据。 
 29 我们在耶和华我们神帐幕前的坛以外,另筑一座坛,为献燔祭,素祭,和别的祭,悖逆耶和华,今日转去不跟从他,我们断没有这个意思。 
 30 祭司非尼哈与会中的首领,就是与他同来以色列军中的统领,听见流便人,迦得人,玛拿西人所说的话,就都以为美。 
 31 祭司以利亚撒的儿子非尼哈对流便人,迦得人,玛拿西人说,今日我们知道耶和华在我们中间,因为你们没有向他犯了这罪。现在你们救以色列人脱离耶和华的手了。 
 32 祭司以利亚撒的儿子非尼哈与众首领离了流便人,迦得人,从基列地回往迦南地,到了以色列人那里,便将这事回报他们。 
 33 以色列人以这事为美,就称颂神,不再提上去攻打流便人,迦得人,毁坏他们所住的地了。 
 34 流便人,迦得人给坛起名叫证坛,意思说,这坛在我们中间证明耶和华是神。

Chapter 22

1 Then Joshua called the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh,
2 And said unto them, Ye have kept all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, and have obeyed my voice in all that I commanded you:
3 Ye have not left your brethren these many days unto this day, but have kept the charge of the commandment of the LORD your God.
4 And now the LORD your God hath given rest unto your brethren, as he promised them: therefore now return ye, and get you unto your tents, and unto the land of your possession, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you on the other side Jordan.
5 But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law, which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to cleave unto him, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.
6 So Joshua blessed them, and sent them away: and they went unto their tents.
7 Now to the one half of the tribe of Manasseh Moses had given possession in Bashan: but unto the other half thereof gave Joshua among their brethren on this side Jordan westward. And when Joshua sent them away also unto their tents, then he blessed them,
8 And he spake unto them, saying, Return with much riches unto your tents, and with very much cattle, with silver, and with gold, and with brass, and with iron, and with very much raiment: divide the spoil of your enemies with your brethren.
9 And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh returned, and departed from the children of Israel out of Shiloh, which is in the land of Canaan, to go unto the country of Gilead, to the land of their possession, whereof they were possessed, according to the word of the LORD by the hand of Moses.
10 And when they came unto the borders of Jordan, that are in the land of Canaan, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh built there an altar by Jordan, a great altar to see to.
11 And the children of Israel heard say, Behold, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh have built an altar over against the land of Canaan, in the borders of Jordan, at the passage of the children of Israel.
12 And when the children of Israel heard of it, the whole congregation of the children of Israel gathered themselves together at Shiloh, to go up to war against them.
13 And the children of Israel sent unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, into the land of Gilead, Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest,
14 And with him ten princes, of each chief house a prince throughout all the tribes of Israel; and each one was an head of the house of their fathers among the thousands of Israel.
15 And they came unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, unto the land of Gilead, and they spake with them, saying,
16 Thus saith the whole congregation of the LORD, What trespass is this that ye have committed against the God of Israel, to turn away this day from following the LORD, in that ye have builded you an altar, that ye might rebel this day against the LORD?
17 Is the iniquity of Peor too little for us, from which we are not cleansed until this day, although there was a plague in the congregation of the LORD,
18 But that ye must turn away this day from following the LORD? and it will be, seeing ye rebel to day against the LORD, that to morrow he will be wroth with the whole congregation of Israel.
19 Notwithstanding, if the land of your possession be unclean, then pass ye over unto the land of the possession of the LORD, wherein the LORD'S tabernacle dwelleth, and take possession among us: but rebel not against the LORD, nor rebel against us, in building you an altar beside the altar of the LORD our God.
20 Did not Achan the son of Zerah commit a trespass in the accursed thing, and wrath fell on all the congregation of Israel? and that man perished not alone in his iniquity.
21 Then the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh answered, and said unto the heads of the thousands of Israel,
22 The LORD God of gods, the LORD God of gods, he knoweth, and Israel he shall know; if it be in rebellion, or if in transgression against the LORD, (save us not this day,)
23 That we have built us an altar to turn from following the LORD, or if to offer thereon burnt offering or meat offering, or if to offer peace offerings thereon, let the LORD himself require it;
24 And if we have not rather done it for fear of this thing, saying, In time to come your children might speak unto our children, saying, What have ye to do with the LORD God of Israel?
25 For the LORD hath made Jordan a border between us and you, ye children of Reuben and children of Gad; ye have no part in the LORD: so shall your children make our children cease from fearing the LORD.
26 Therefore we said, Let us now prepare to build us an altar, not for burnt offering, nor for sacrifice:
27 But that it may be a witness between us, and you, and our generations after us, that we might do the service of the LORD before him with our burnt offerings, and with our sacrifices, and with our peace offerings; that your children may not say to our children in time to come, Ye have no part in the LORD.
28 Therefore said we, that it shall be, when they should so say to us or to our generations in time to come, that we may say again, Behold the pattern of the altar of the LORD, which our fathers made, not for burnt offerings, nor for sacrifices; but it is a witness between us and you.
29 God forbid that we should rebel against the LORD, and turn this day from following the LORD, to build an altar for burnt offerings, for meat offerings, or for sacrifices, beside the altar of the LORD our God that is before his tabernacle.
30 And when Phinehas the priest, and the princes of the congregation and heads of the thousands of Israel which were with him, heard the words that the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the children of Manasseh spake, it pleased them.
31 And Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest said unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the children of Manasseh, This day we perceive that the LORD is among us, because ye have not committed this trespass against the LORD: now ye have delivered the children of Israel out of the hand of the LORD.
32 And Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, and the princes, returned from the children of Reuben, and from the children of Gad, out of the land of Gilead, unto the land of Canaan, to the children of Israel, and brought them word again.
33 And the thing pleased the children of Israel; and the children of Israel blessed God, and did not intend to go up against them in battle, to destroy the land wherein the children of Reuben and Gad dwelt.
34 And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad called the altar Ed: for it shall be a witness between us that the LORD is God.

第二十三章

 1 耶和华使以色列人安静,不与四围的一切仇敌争战,已经多日。约书亚年纪老迈, 
 2 就把以色列众人的长老,族长,审判官,并官长都召了来,对他们说,我年纪已经老迈。 
 3 耶和华你们的神因你们的缘故向那些国所行的一切事,你们亲眼看见了,因那为你们争战的是耶和华你们的神。 
 4 我所剪除和所剩下的各国,从约旦河起到日落之处的大海,我已经拈阄分给你们各支派为业。 
 5 耶和华你们的神必将他们从你们面前赶出去,使他们离开你们,你们就必得他们的地为业,正如耶和华你们的神所应许的。 
 6 所以,你们要大大壮胆,谨守遵行写在摩西律法书上的一切话,不可偏离左右。 
 7 不可与你们中间所剩下的这些国民搀杂。他们的神,你们不可提他的名,不可指着他起誓,也不可事奉,叩拜。 
 8 只要照着你们到今日所行的,专靠耶和华你们的神。 
 9 因为耶和华已经把又大又强的国民从你们面前赶出。直到今日,没有一人在你们面前站立得住。 
 10 你们一人必追赶千人,因耶和华你们的神照他所应许的,为你们争战。 
 11 你们要分外谨慎,爱耶和华你们的神。 
 12 你们若稍微转去,与你们中间所剩下的这些国民联络,彼此结亲,互相往来, 
 13 你们要确实知道,耶和华你们的神必不再将他们从你们眼前赶出。他们却要成为你们的网罗,机槛,肋上的鞭,眼中的刺,直到你们在耶和华你们神所赐的这美地上灭亡。 
 14 我现在要走世人必走的路。你们是一心一意地知道,耶和华你们神所应许赐福与你们的话没有一句落空,都应验在你们身上了。 
 15 耶和华你们神所应许的一切福气怎样临到你们身上,耶和华也必照样使各样祸患临到你们身上,直到把你们从耶和华你们神所赐的这美地上除灭。 
 16 你们若违背耶和华你们神吩咐你们所守的约,去事奉别神,叩拜他,耶和华的怒气必向你们发作,使你们在他所赐的美地上速速灭亡。

Chapter 23

1 And it came to pass a long time after that the LORD had given rest unto Israel from all their enemies round about, that Joshua waxed old and stricken in age.
2 And Joshua called for all Israel, and for their elders, and for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers, and said unto them, I am old and stricken in age:
3 And ye have seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto all these nations because of you; for the LORD your God is he that hath fought for you.
4 Behold, I have divided unto you by lot these nations that remain, to be an inheritance for your tribes, from Jordan, with all the nations that I have cut off, even unto the great sea westward.
5 And the LORD your God, he shall expel them from before you, and drive them from out of your sight; and ye shall possess their land, as the LORD your God hath promised unto you.
6 Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left;
7 That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them:
8 But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this day.
9 For the LORD hath driven out from before you great nations and strong: but as for you, no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day.
10 One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God, he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you.
11 Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the LORD your God.
12 Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you:
13 Know for a certainty that the LORD your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you.
14 And, behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth: and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the LORD your God spake concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath failed thereof.
15 Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which the LORD your God promised you; so shall the LORD bring upon you all evil things, until he have destroyed you from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you.
16 When ye have transgressed the covenant of the LORD your God, which he commanded you, and have gone and served other gods, and bowed yourselves to them; then shall the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and ye shall perish quickly from off the good land which he hath given unto you.

第二十四章

 1 约书亚将以色列的众支派聚集在示剑,召了以色列的长老,族长,审判官,并官长来,他们就站在神面前。 
 2 约书亚对众民说,耶和华以色列的神如此说,古时你们的列祖,就是亚伯拉罕和拿鹤的父亲他拉,住在大河那边事奉别神, 
 3 我将你们的祖宗亚伯拉罕从大河那边带来,领他走遍迦南全地,又使他的子孙众多,把以撒赐给他。 
 4 又把雅各和以扫赐给以撒,将西珥山赐给以扫为业。后来雅各和他的子孙下到埃及去了。 
 5 我差遣摩西,亚伦,并照我在埃及中所行的降灾与埃及,然后把你们领出来。 
 6 我领你们列祖出埃及,他们就到了红海。埃及人带领车辆马兵追赶你们列祖到红海。 
 7 你们列祖哀求耶和华,他就使你们和埃及人中间黑暗了,又使海水淹没埃及人。我在埃及所行的事,你们亲眼见过。你们在旷野也住了许多年日。 
 8 我领你们到约旦河东亚摩利人所住之地。他们与你们争战,我将他们交在你们手中,你们便得了他们的地为业。我也在你们面前将他们灭绝。 
 9 那时,摩押王西拨的儿子巴勒起来攻击以色列人,打发人召了比珥的儿子巴兰来咒诅你们。 
 10 我不肯听巴兰的话,所以他倒为你们连连祝福。这样,我便救你们脱离巴勒的手。 
 11 你们过了约旦河,到了耶利哥。耶利哥人,亚摩利人,比利洗人,迦南人,赫人,革迦撒人,希未人,耶布斯人都与你们争战。我把他们交在你们手里。 
 12 我打发黄蜂飞在你们前面,将亚摩利人的二王从你们面前撵出,并不是用你的刀,也不是用你的弓。 
 13 我赐给你们地土,非你们所修治的。我赐给你们城邑,非你们所建造的。你们就住在其中,又得吃非你们所栽种的葡萄园,橄榄园的果子。 
 14 现在你们要敬畏耶和华,诚心实意地事奉他,将你们列祖在大河那边和在埃及所事奉的神除掉,去事奉耶和华。 
 15 若是你们以事奉耶和华为不好,今日就可以选择所要事奉的,是你们列祖在大河那边所事奉的神呢?是你们所住这地的亚摩利人的神呢?至于我和我家,我们必定事奉耶和华。 
 16 百姓回答说,我们断不敢离弃耶和华去事奉别神。 
 17 因耶和华我们的神曾将我们和我们列祖从埃及地的为奴之家领出来,在我们眼前行了那些大神迹,在我们所行的道上,所经过的诸国,都保护了我们。 
 18 耶和华又把住此地的亚摩利人都从我们面前赶出去。所以,我们必事奉耶和华,因为他是我们的神。 
 19 约书亚对百姓说,你们不能事奉耶和华。因为他是圣洁的神,是忌邪的神,必不赦免你们的过犯罪恶。 
 20 你们若离弃耶和华去事奉外邦神,耶和华在降福之后,必转而降祸与你们,把你们灭绝。 
 21 百姓回答约书亚说,不然,我们定要事奉耶和华。 
 22 约书亚对百姓说,你们选定耶和华,要事奉他,你们自己作见证吧。他们说,我们愿意作见证。 
 23 约书亚说,你们现在要除掉你们中间的外邦神,专心归向耶和华以色列的神。 
 24 百姓回答约书亚说,我们必事奉耶和华我们的神,听从他的话。 
 25 当日,约书亚就与百姓立约,在示剑为他们立定律例典章。 
 26 约书亚将这些话都写在神的律法书上,又将一块大石头立在橡树下耶和华的圣所旁边。 
 27 约书亚对百姓说,看哪,这石头可以向我们作见证。因为是听见了耶和华所吩咐我们的一切话,倘或你们背弃你们的神,这石头就可以向你们作见证(倘或云云或作所以要向你们作见证,免得你们背弃耶和华你们的神)。 
 28 于是约书亚打发百姓各归自己的地业去了。 
 29 这些事以后,耶和华的仆人嫩的儿子约书亚,正一百一十岁,就死了。 
 30 以色列人将他葬在他地业的境内,就是在以法莲山地的亭拿西拉,在迦实山的北边。 
 31 约书亚在世和约书亚死后,那些知道耶和华为以色列人所行诸事的长老还在的时候,以色列人事奉耶和华。 
 32 以色列人从埃及所带来约瑟的骸骨,葬埋在示剑,就是在雅各从前用一百块银子向示剑的父亲,哈抹的子孙所买的那块地里。这就作了约瑟子孙的产业。 
 33 亚伦的儿子以利亚撒也死了,就把他葬在他儿子非尼哈,以法莲山地所得的小山上。

Chapter 24

1 And Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and called for the elders of Israel, and for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers; and they presented themselves before God.
2 And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods.
3 And I 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 gave him Isaac.
4 And I gave unto Isaac Jacob and Esau: and I gave unto Esau mount Seir, to possess it; but Jacob and his children went down into Egypt.
5 I sent Moses also and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt, according to that which I did among them: and afterward I brought you out.
6 And I brought your fathers out of Egypt: and ye came unto the sea; and 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; and 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 Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred against Israel, and sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you:
10 But I would not hearken unto Balaam; therefore 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 I sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from before you, even the two kings of the Amorites; but not with thy sword, nor with thy bow.
13 And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat.
14 Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in 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 the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but 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, Ye cannot serve the LORD: for he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins.
20 If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then 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 ye have chosen you the LORD, to serve him. And they said, We are witnesses.
23 Now therefore put 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 made a covenant with the people that day, and set them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem.
26 And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set 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 a witness unto us; for it 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 Timnathserah, which is in mount Ephraim, on the north side of the hill of Gaash.
31 And Israel 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 the bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel brought up out of Egypt, buried they in Shechem, in a parcel of ground which 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 Phinehas his son, which was given him in mount Ephraim.
