Joshua 24
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And Yeshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shekeem and he called the Elders of Israel and their Leaders and their Judges and their Scribes and he stood before the Tabernacle of Time before God 2And Yeshua said to all the people, “Thus says LORD JEHOVAH, the God of Israel: ‘Your fathers were dwelling at the crossing of the river from antiquity,Terah the father of Abraham and the father of Nakhor, and they were serving other gods there 3And I brought Abraham your father from the other side of the river and I walked him in all the land of Canaan, and I increased his seed and I gave him Isaaq 4And I gave to Isaaq Yaqob and Eisu, and I gave to Eisu the inheritance, the Mountain of Seir, and Yaqob and his children went down to Egypt 5And I sent Moshe and Aaron and I afflicted the Egyptians and I did wonders among them, and afterward I brought you out 6And I brought your fathers out from Egypt and I brought them to the sea and the Egyptians pursued after your fathers in chariots and with horsemen to the Sea of Reeds 7And your fathers cried out to LORD JEHOVAH and he made darkness among the Egyptians, and LORD JEHOVAH divided the Sea of Reeds and he made your fathers cross over inside it, and he brought the sea over the Egyptians and it covered them, and your eyes have seen the thing that I did to the Egyptians, and I brought you to the wilderness and you dwelt in the wilderness for many days 8And I brought you to the land of the Amorites who dwelt at the crossing of the Jordan, and they fought with you and I delivered them into your hands, and I destroyed them from before you and you inherited their land 9And Balaq, son of Tsephur, King of the Moabites arose and fought with Israel, and he sent and he called Belaam son of Beor to curse you 10And I was not willing to listen to Belaam, and blessing I blessed you, and I saved you from his hands 11And you crossed the Jordan and you came to Yerikho, and the men of Yerikho and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perezites and the Khethites and the Gergusites and the Khevites and the Yebusites fought with you, and I delivered them into your hands 12And I sent hornets before you and I destroyed their two Kings of the Amorites from before you, not with your swords, neither with your bows 13And I gave you the land in which you had not labored and the towns that you had not built and you dwelt in them, and the vineyards and the olive trees that you had not planted now you eat, and the vineyards and the olive trees that you had not planted, behold, you eat

14From now on, be in awe of LORD JEHOVAH and serve him in perfection and in truth, and remove from your heart foreign gods that your fathers served at the crossing of the river and in Egypt, and you serve LORD JEHOVAH 15And if it is evil in your eyes to serve LORD JEHOVAH, choose for yourselves today whom you serve, if the gods that your fathers served at the crossing of the river, or the gods of the Amorites where you dwell in their land, but I and the children of my household, we serve LORD JEHOVAH; he is God!”

16And all of the people answered and they said: “God forbid us that we would forsake LORD JEHOVAH and we would serve other gods 17Because LORD JEHOVAH, he is our God who brought us up from the land of Egypt, from the house of slavery, and he performed in front of us these great signs and he kept us all of the way in which we walked and among all of the nations in whose midst we passed 18And LORD JEHOVAH our God destroyed all of these nations and the Amorites where we dwell in their land. LORD JEHOVAH destroyed them in front of us, because of this, LORD JEHOVAH is he whom we serve, because he is God, he alone, and he is our God!”

19And Yeshua said to the people: “See, but how, when you are unable to serve LORD JEHOVAH, because God is holy and God is zealous, but he does not forgive your debts and your sins? 20Will you forsake LORD JEHOVAH and will you serve other foreign gods of the land, and will LORD JEHOVAH turn to do evil to you and will he consume you after he did good to you?” 21And the people said to Yeshua: “For us there is no worship of another, but LORD JEHOVAH, he is the God we serve!” 22And Yeshua said to the people: “You are witnesses in your souls that you have chosen for yourselves to serve LORD JEHOVAH.” And they said to him: “We are witnesses!” 23Yeshua said to them: “From now on, put away foreign gods that are in your midst and prepare your heart in the presence of LORD JEHOVAH, the God of Israel” 24And the people said to Yeshua: “We serve LORD JEHOVAH our God, and to his voice we will listen” 25And Yeshua covenanted a covenant with the people in that day, and he taught them the commandments and the judgments in Shekim 26And Yeshua wrote these words in a scroll of the Law of God, and he took a great stone and he stood it under an oak of the house of the sanctuary of LORD JEHOVAH 27And Yeshua said to all the people: “Behold, this stone shall be to us a witness, because this has heard all of the words of LORD JEHOVAH that he spoke with us, and it shall be for yourselves a witness that you will not be false to LORD JEHOVAH your God” 28After Yeshua commanded the people, he sent them, each man, to his inheritance

29And after these words, Yeshua, son of Nun, the Servant of LORD JEHOVAH died, son of a hundred and ten years 30And they buried him at the border of his inheritance in Tamnathserakh, that is in the Mount of Aphrim, from the north to the Mountain of Gaash

31And Israel served LORD JEHOVAH all of the days of Yeshua and all of the days of the Elders who lived long after Yeshua, and they had known the works of LORD JEHOVAH that he did for Israel

32And the bones of Yoseph that the sons of Israel brought up from Egypt, they buried in Shekim in the section of the field that Yaqub bought with one hundred ewes from Khamur, father of Shekim, and it was an inheritance for the children of Yoseph 33And Eliazar the Priest, son of Aaron the Priest, died, and they buried him in Gebatha of Phinkhas, his son, which was given to him in the Mount of Aphrim ?
