Joshua 24:24 Meaning and Commentary

Joshua 24:24

And the people said unto Joshua
A third time, that as by the mouth of two or three witnesses everything is confirmed, so by three testimonies of the same persons:

the Lord our God will we serve;
as they had before declared, and to which they add:

and his voice will we obey;
or his word, as the Targum, not only his word of command, but his essential Word, the Son of God.

Joshua 24:24 In-Context

22 Then Joshua said to the people, "You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen the Lord, to serve him." And they said, "We are witnesses."
23 He said, "Then put away the foreign gods that are among you, and incline your hearts to the Lord, the God of Israel."
24 The people said to Joshua, "The Lord our God we will serve, and him we will obey."
25 So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and made statutes and ordinances for them at Shechem.
26 Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God; and he took a large stone, and set it up there under the oak in the sanctuary of the Lord.
