They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their ancestors, with all their heart and with all their soul.
Whoever would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, should be put to death, whether young or old, man or woman.
They took an oath to the Lord with a loud voice, and with shouting, and with trumpets, and with horns.
