The Book of Joshua

Chapter 23

1

And it came to pass a long time after that the LORD had given rest52 unto Israel from all their enemies6 round about, that Joshua waxed old1 [and] stricken1 in age.

2

And Joshua called4 for all Israel, [and] for their elders, and for their heads, and for their judges,6 and for their officers,6 and said4 unto them, I am old1 [and] stricken1 in age:

3

And ye have seen1 all that the LORD your God hath done1 unto all these nations because of you; for the LORD your God [is] he that hath fought12 for you.

4

Behold,3 I have divided52 unto you by lot these nations that remain,12 to be an inheritance for your tribes, from Jordan, with all the nations that I have cut off,52 even unto the great sea westward. 8121

5

And the LORD your God, he shall expel4 them from before you, and drive52 them from out of your sight; and ye shall possess1 their land, as the LORD your God hath promised14 unto you.

6

Be ye therefore very courageous1 to keep2 and to do2 all that is written7 in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside2 therefrom [to] the right hand or [to] the left;

7

That ye come2 not among these nations, these that remain12 among you; neither make mention55 of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear55 [by them], neither serve4 them, nor bow101 yourselves unto them:

8

But cleave4 unto the LORD your God, as ye have done1 unto this day.

9

For the LORD hath driven out55 from before you great nations and strong: but [as for] you, no man hath been able to stand1 before you unto this day.

10

One man of you shall chase4 a thousand: for the LORD your God, he [it is] that fighteth12 for you, as he hath promised14 you.

11

Take good heed8 therefore unto yourselves, that ye love2 the LORD your God.

12

Else if ye do in any wise2 go back,4 and cleave1 unto the remnant of these nations, [even] these that remain12 among you, and shall make marriages98 with them, and go in1 unto them, and they to you:

13

Know4 for a certainty2 that the LORD your God will no more55 drive out53 [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 perish2 from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given1 you.

14

And, behold, this day I [am] going6 the way of all the earth: and ye know1 in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing hath failed1 of all the good things which the LORD your God spake14 concerning you; all are come to pass1 unto you, [and] not one thing hath failed1 thereof.

15

Therefore it shall come to pass, [that] as all good things are come1 upon you, which the LORD your God promised14 you; so shall the LORD bring55 upon you all evil things, until he have destroyed53 you from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given1 you.

16

When ye have transgressed2 the covenant of the LORD your God, which he commanded14 you, and have gone1 and served1 other gods, and bowed98 yourselves to them; then shall the anger of the LORD be kindled1 against you, and ye shall perish1 quickly from off the good land which he hath given1 unto you.
