Joshua 24:1-13

Joshua Reviews Israel's History

1 Then 1Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and called for the elders of Israel and for their heads and their judges and their officers; and they presented themselves before God.
2 Joshua said to all the people, "Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, 'From ancient times your fathers lived beyond the River, namely, 2Terah, the father of Abraham and the father of Nahor, and they served other gods.
3 'Then 3I took your father Abraham from beyond * the River, and led him through all the land of Canaan, and 4multiplied his descendants and gave him 5Isaac.
4 'To Isaac I gave 6Jacob and Esau, and 7to Esau I gave Mount Seir to possess it; but 8Jacob and his sons went down to Egypt.
5 'Then 9I sent Moses and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt by what I did in its midst; and afterward I brought you out.
6 'I brought your fathers out of Egypt, and 10you came to the sea; and Egypt pursued your fathers with chariots and horsemen to the Red * Sea.
7 'But when they cried out to the LORD, He put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them and covered them; and your own eyes saw what I did in Egypt. And 11you lived in the wilderness for a long time.
8 'Then 12I brought you into the land of the Amorites who lived beyond the Jordan, and they fought with you; and I gave them into your hand, and you took possession of their land when I destroyed them before you.
9 'Then 13Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and fought against Israel, and he sent and summoned Balaam the son of Beor to curse you.
10 'But I 14was not willing to listen to Balaam. So he had to bless you, and I delivered you from his hand.
11 '15You crossed the Jordan and came to Jericho; and the citizens of Jericho fought against you, and 16the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Girgashite, the Hivite and the Jebusite. Thus 17I gave them into your hand.
12 'Then I 18sent the hornet before you and it drove out the two kings of the Amorites from before * you, but 19not by your sword or your bow.
13 '20I gave you a land on which you had not labored, and cities which you had not built, and you have lived in them; you are eating of vineyards and olive groves which you did not plant.'
