Soon after this, Joshua son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died at the age of 110.
They buried him in the land he had inherited, at Timnath-serah in the hill country of Ephraim, north of Mount Gaash.
Israel served the LORD throughout the lifetime of Joshua and of the leaders who outlived him -- those who had personally experienced all that the LORD had done for Israel.
The bones of Joseph, which the Israelites had brought along with them when they left Egypt, were buried at Shechem, in the parcel of ground Jacob had bought from the sons of Hamor for one hundred pieces of silver. a This land was located in the territory allotted to the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh, the descendants of Joseph.
Eleazar son of Aaron also died. He was buried in the hill country of Ephraim, in the town of Gibeah, which had been given to his son Phinehas.
