Then they entered into a covenant to seek the LORD, the God of their ancestors, with all their heart and soul.
They agreed that anyone who refused to seek the LORD, the God of Israel, would be put to death -- whether young or old, man or woman.
They shouted out their oath of loyalty to the LORD with trumpets blaring and horns sounding.
