1 And Joshua gathered all the tribe of Israel to Selo, and convoked their elders, and their officers, and their judges, and set them before God. 2 And Joshua said to all the people, Thus says the Lord God of Israel, Your fathers at first sojourned beyond the river, [even] Thara, the father of Abraam and the father of Nachor; and they served other gods. 3 And I took your father Abraam from the other side of the river, and I guided him through all the land, and I multiplied his seed; 4 and I gave to him Isaac, and to Isaac Jacob and Esau: and I gave to Esau mount Seir for him to inherit: and Jacob and his sons went down to Egypt, and became there a great and populous and mighty nation: and the Egyptians afflicted them. 5 And I smote Egypt with the wonders that I wrought among them. 6 And afterwards [God] brought out our fathers from Egypt, and ye entered into the Red Sea; and the Egyptians pursued after our fathers with chariots and horses into the Red Sea. 7 And we cried aloud to the Lord; and he put a cloud and darkness between us and the Egyptians, and he brought the sea upon them, and covered them; and your eyes have seen all that the Lord did in the land of Egypt; and ye were in the wilderness many days. 8 And he brought us into the land of the Amorites that dwelt beyond Jordan, and the Lord delivered them into our hands; and ye inherited their land, and utterly destroyed them from before you. 9 And Balac, king of Moab, son of Sepphor, rose up, and made war against Israel, and sent and called Balaam to curse us. 10 But the Lord thy God would not destroy thee; and he greatly blessed us, and rescued us out of their hands, and delivered them [to us]. 11 And ye crossed over Jordan, and came to Jericho; and the inhabitants of Jericho fought against us, the Amorite, and the Chananite, and the Pherezite, and the Evite, and the Jebusite, and the Chettite, and the Gergesite, and the Lord delivered them into our hands. 12 And he sent forth the hornet before you; and he drove them out from before you, [even] twelve kings of the Amorites, not with thy sword, nor with thy bow. 13 And he gave you a land on which ye did not labour, and cities which ye did not build, and ye were settled in them; and ye eat [of] vineyards and oliveyards which ye did not plant. 14 And now fear the Lord, and serve him in righteousness and justice; and remove the strange gods, which our fathers served beyond the river, and in Egypt; and serve the Lord. 15 But if it seem not good to you to serve the Lord, choose to yourselves this day whom ye will serve, whether the gods of your fathers that were on the other side of the river, or the gods of the Amorites, among whom ye dwell upon their land: but I and my house will serve the Lord, for he is holy. 16 And the people answered and said, Far be it from us to forsake the Lord, so as to serve other gods. 17 The Lord our God, he is God; he brought up us and our fathers from Egypt, and kept us in all the way wherein we walked, and among all the nations through whom we passed. 18 And the Lord cast out the Amorite, and all the nations that inhabited the land from before us: yea, we will serve the Lord, for he is our God. 19 And Joshua said to the people, Indeed ye will not be able to serve the Lord, for God is holy; and he being jealous will not forgive your sins and your transgressions. 20 Whensoever ye shall forsake the Lord and serve other gods, then he shall come upon you and afflict you, and consume you, because he has done you good. 21 And the people said to Joshua, Nay, but we will serve the Lord. 22 And Joshua said to the people, Ye [are] witnesses against yourselves, that ye have chosen the Lord to serve him. 23 And now take away the strange gods that are among you, and set your heart right toward the Lord God of Israel. 24 And the people said to Joshua, We will serve the Lord, and we will hearken to his voice. 25 So Joshua made a covenant with the people on that day, and gave them a law and an ordinance in Selo before the tabernacle of the God of Israel. 26 And he wrote these words in the book of the laws of God: and Joshua took a great stone, and set it up under the oak before the Lord. 27 And Joshua said to the people, Behold, this stone shall be among you for a witness, for it has heard all the words that have been spoken to it by the Lord; for he has spoken to you this day; and this [stone] shall be among you for a witness in the last days, whenever ye shall deal falsely with the Lord my God. 28 And Joshua dismissed the people, and they went every man to his place. 29 And Israel served the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that lived as long as Joshua, and all that knew all the works of the Lord which he wrought for Israel. 30 And it came to pass after these things that Joshua the son of Naue the servant of the Lord died, [at the age] of a hundred and ten years. 31 And they buried him by the borders of his inheritance in Thamnasarach in the mount of Ephraim, northward of the mount of Gaas: there they put with him into the tomb in which they buried him, the knives of stone with which he circumcised the children of Israel in Galgala, when he brought them out of Egypt, as the Lord appointed them; and there they are to this day. 32 And the children of Israel brought up the bones of Joseph out of Egypt, and buried [them] in Sicima, in the portion of the land which Jacob bought of the Amorites who dwelt in Sicima for a hundred ewe-lambs; and he gave it to Joseph for a portion. 33 And it came to pass afterwards that Eleazar the high-priest the son of Aaron died, and was buried in Gabaar of Phinees his son, which he gave him in mount Ephraim. In that day the children of Israel took the ark of God, and carried it about among them; and Phinees exercised the priest’s office in the room of Eleazar his father till he died, and he was buried in his own place Gabaar: but the children of Israel departed every one to their place, and to their own city: and the children of Israel worshipped Astarte, and Astaroth, and the gods of the nations round about them; and the Lord delivered them into the hands of Eglom king of Moab and he ruled over them eighteen years. ΚΑΙ συνήγαγεν ᾿Ιησοῦς πάσας φυλὰς ᾿Ισραὴλ εἰς Σηλὼ καὶ συνεκάλεσε τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς γραμματεῖς αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς δικαστὰς αὐτῶν καὶ ἔστησεν αὐτοὺς ἀπέναντι τοῦ Θεοῦ. 2 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιησοῦς πρὸς πάντα τὸν λαόν· τάδε λέγει Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραήλ· πέραν τοῦ ποταμοῦ παρῴκησαν οἱ πατέρες ὑμῶν τὸ ἀπ’ ἀρχῆς, Θάρα ὁ πατὴρ ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ ὁ πατὴρ Ναχώρ, καὶ ἐλάτρευσαν θεοῖς ἑτέροις. 3 καὶ ἔλαβον τὸν πατέρα ὑμῶν τὸν ῾Αβραὰμ ἐκ τοῦ πέραν τοῦ ποταμοῦ καὶ ὡδήγησα αὐτὸν ἐν πάσῃ τῇ γῇ καὶ ἐπλήθυνα αὐτοῦ σπέρμα 4 καὶ ἔδωκα αὐτῷ τὸν ᾿Ισαάκ, καὶ τῷ ᾿Ισαὰκ τὸν ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ τὸν ῾Ησαῦ· καὶ ἔδωκα τῷ ῾Ησαῦ τὸ ὄρος τὸ Σηεὶρ κληρονομῆσαι αὐτῷ, καὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ κατέβησαν εἰς Αἴγυπτον καὶ ἐγένοντο ἐκεῖ εἰς ἔθνος μέγα καὶ πολὺ καὶ κραταιόν. καὶ ἐκάκωσαν αὐτοὺς οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι, 5 καὶ ἐπάταξε Κύριος τὴν Αἴγυπτον ἐν σημείοις, οἷς ἐποίησεν ἐν αὐτοῖς. 6 καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα ἐξήγαγε τοὺς πατέρας ἡμῶν ἐξ Αἰγύπτου, καὶ εἰσήλθατε εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν τὴν ἐρυθράν. καὶ κατεδίωξαν οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι ὀπίσω τῶν πατέρων ἡμῶν ἐν ἅρμασι καὶ ἐν ἵπποις εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν τὴν ἐρυθράν, 7 καὶ ἀνεβοήσαμεν πρὸς Κύριον, καὶ ἔδωκε νεφέλην καὶ γνόφον ἀναμέσον ἡμῶν καὶ ἀναμέσον τῶν Αἰγυπτίων καὶ ἐπήγαγεν ἐπ’ αὐτοὺς τὴν θάλασσαν, καὶ ἐκάλυψεν αὐτούς, καὶ εἴδοσαν οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ ὑμῶν ὅσα ἐποίησε Κύριος ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ, καὶ ἦτε ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ἡμέρας πλείους. 8 καὶ ἤγαγεν ἡμᾶς εἰς γῆν ᾿Αμορραίων τῶν κατοικούντων πέραν τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου, καὶ παρετάξαντο ὑμῖν καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτοὺς Κύριος εἰς τὰς χεῖρας ὑμῶν, καὶ κατεκληρονομήσατε τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν καὶ ἐξωλοθρεύσατε αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ προσώπου ὑμῶν. 9 καὶ ἀνέστη Βαλὰκ ὁ τοῦ Σεπφὼρ βασιλεὺς Μωὰβ καὶ παρετάξατο τῷ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ἀποστείλας ἐκάλεσε τὸν Βαλαὰμ ἀράσασθαι ἡμῖν· 10 καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησε Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου ἀπολέσαι σε, καὶ εὐλογίαις εὐλόγησεν ὑμᾶς, καὶ ἐξείλατο ὑμᾶς ἐκ χειρῶν αὐτῶν, καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτούς. 11 καὶ διέβητε τὸν ᾿Ιορδάνην καὶ παρεγενήθητε εἰς ῾Ιεριχώ· καὶ ἐπολέμησαν πρὸς ἡμᾶς οἱ κατοικοῦντες ῾Ιεριχώ, ὁ ᾿Αμορραῖος καὶ ὁ Χαναναῖος καὶ ὁ Φερεζαῖος καὶ ὁ Εὐαῖος καὶ ὁ ᾿Ιεβουσαῖος καὶ ὁ Χετταῖος καὶ ὁ Γεργεσαῖος, καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτοὺς Κύριος εἰς τὰς χεῖρας ὑμῶν. 12 καὶ ἐξαπέστειλε προτέραν ὑμῶν τὴν σφηκιάν, καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ προσώπου ὑμῶν, δώδεκα βασιλεῖς τῶν ᾿Αμορραίων, οὐκ ἐν τῇ ῥομφαίᾳ σου οὐδὲ ἐν τῷ τόξῳ σου. 13 καὶ ἔδωκεν ὑμῖν γῆν, ἐφ’ ἣν οὐκ ἐκοπιάσατε ἐπ᾿ αὐτῆς, καὶ πόλεις, ἃς οὐκ ᾠκοδομήκατε, καὶ κατῳκίσθητε ἐν αὐταῖς· καὶ ἀμπελῶνας καὶ ἐλαιῶνας, οὓς οὐκ ἐφυτεύσατε ὑμεῖς, ἔδεσθε. 14 καὶ νῦν φοβήθητε Κύριον, καὶ λατρεύσατε αὐτῷ ἐν εὐθύτητι καὶ ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ καὶ περιέλεσθε τοὺς θεοὺς τοὺς ἀλλοτρίους, οἷς ἐλάτρευσαν οἱ πατέρες ἡμῶν ἐν τῷ πέραν τοῦ ποταμοῦ καὶ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ, καὶ λατρεύσατε Κυρίῳ. 15 εἰ δὲ μὴ ἀρέσκει ὑμῖν λατρεύειν Κυρίῳ, ἐκλέξασθε ὑμῖν αὐτοῖς σήμερον, τίνι λατρεύσητε, εἴτε τοῖς θεοῖς τῶν πατέρων ὑμῶν, τοῖς ἐν τῷ πέραν τοῦ ποταμοῦ, εἴτε τοῖς θεοῖς τῶν ᾿Αμορραίων, ἐν οἷς ὑμεῖς κατοικεῖτε ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς αὐτῶν· ἐγὼ δὲ καὶ ἡ οἰκία μου λατρεύσομεν Κυρίῳ, ὅτι ἅγιός ἐστι. 16 Καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ λαὸς εἶπε· μὴ γένοιτο ἡμῖν καταλιπεῖν Κύριον, ὥστε λατρεύειν θεοῖς ἑτέροις. 17 Κύριος ὁ Θεός ἡμῶν, αὐτὸς Θεός ἐστιν· αὐτὸς ἀνήγαγεν ἡμᾶς καὶ τοὺς πατέρας ἡμῶν ἐξ Αἰγύπτου καὶ διεφύλαξεν ἡμᾶς ἐν πάσῃ τῇ ὁδῷ, ᾗ ἐπορεύθημεν ἐν αὐτῇ, καί ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς ἔθνεσιν, οὓς παρήλθομεν δι’ αὐτῶν. 18 καὶ ἐξέβαλε Κύριος τὸν ᾿Αμορραῖον καὶ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη τὰ κατοικοῦντα τὴν γῆν ἀπὸ προσώπου ἡμῶν. ἀλλὰ καὶ ἡμεῖς λατρεύσομεν Κυρίῳ· οὗτος γὰρ Θεὸς ἡμῶν ἐστι. 19 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιησοῦς πρὸς τὸν λαόν· οὐ μὴ δύνησθε λατρεύειν Κυρίῳ, ὅτι ὁ Θεὸς ἅγιός ἐστι, καὶ ζηλώσας οὗτος οὐκ ἀνήσει τὰ ἁμαρτήματα ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ ἀνομήματα ὑμῶν· 20 ἡνίκα ἂν ἐγκαταλίπητε Κύριον καὶ λατρεύσητε θεοῖς ἑτέροις, καὶ ἐπελθὼν κακώσει ὑμᾶς καὶ ἐξαναλώσει ὑμᾶς ἀνθ’ ὧν εὖ ἐποίησεν ὑμᾶς. 21 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ λαὸς πρὸς ᾿Ιησοῦν· οὐχί, ἀλλὰ Κυρίῳ λατρεύσομεν. 22 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιησοῦς πρὸς τὸν λαόν· μάρτυρες ὑμεῖς καθ’ ὑμῶν, ὅτι ὑμεῖς ἐξελέξασθε Κυρίῳ λατρεύειν αὐτῷ. 23 καὶ νῦν περιέλεσθε τοὺς θεοὺς τοὺς ἀλλοτρίους τοὺς ἐν ὑμῖν καὶ εὐθύνατε τὴν καρδίαν ὑμῶν πρὸς Κύριον Θεὸν ᾿Ισραήλ. 24 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ λαὸς πρὸς ᾿Ιησοῦν· Κυρίῳ λατρεύσομεν καὶ τῆς φωνῆς αὐτοῦ ἀκουσόμεθα. 25 καὶ διέθετο ᾿Ιησοῦς διαθήκην πρὸς τὸν λαὸν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ νόμον καὶ κρίσιν ἐν Σηλὼ ἐνώπιον τῆς σκηνῆς τοῦ Θεοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ. 26 καὶ ἔγραψε τὰ ρήματα ταῦτα εἰς βιβλίον νόμων τοῦ Θεοῦ· καὶ ἔλαβε λίθον μέγαν καὶ ἔστησεν αὐτὸν ᾿Ιησοῦς ὑπὸ τὴν τερέμινθον ἀπέναντι Κυρίου. 27 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιησοῦς πρὸς τὸν λαόν· ἰδοὺ ὁ λίθος οὗτος ἔσται ἐν ὑμῖν εἰς μαρτύριον, ὅτι αὐτὸς ἀκήκοε πάντα τὰ λεχθέντα αὐτῷ ὑπὸ Κυρίου, ὅ,τι ἐλάλησε πρὸς ὑμᾶς σήμερον· καὶ οὗτος ἔσται ἐν ὑμῖν εἰς μαρτύριον ἐπ’ ἐσχάτων τῶν ἡμερῶν, ἡνίκα ἂν ψεύσησθε Κυρίῳ τῷ Θεῷ μου. 28 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ᾿Ιησοῦς τὸν λαόν, καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν ἕκαστος εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτοῦ. 29 καὶ ἐλάτρευσεν ᾿Ισραὴλ τῷ Κυρίῳ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ᾿Ιησοῦ καὶ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τῶν πρεσβυτέρων, ὅσοι ἐφείλκυσαν τὸν χρόνον μετὰ ᾿Ιησοῦ καὶ ὅσοι εἴδοσαν πάντα τὰ ἔργα Κυρίου, ὅσα ἐποίησε τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ. 30 Καὶ ἐγένετο μετ’ ἐκεῖνα καὶ ἀπέθανεν ᾿Ιησοῦς υἱὸς Ναυὴ δοῦλος Κυρίου ἑκατὸν δέκα ἐτῶν. 31 καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν πρὸς τοῖς ὁρίοις τοῦ κλήρου αὐτοῦ ἐν Θαμνασαρὰχ ἐν τῷ ὄρει τῷ ᾿Εφραὶμ ἀπὸ βορρᾶ τοῦ ὄρους Γαάς· ἐκεῖ ἔθηκαν μετ’ αὐτοῦ εἰς τό μνῆμα, εἰς ὃ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ, τὰς μαχαίρας τὰς πετρίνας, ἐν αἷς περιέτεμε τοὺς υἱοὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν Γαλγάλοις, ὅτε ἐξήγαγεν αὐτοὺς ἐξ Αἰγύπτου, καθὰ συνέταξεν αὐτοῖς Κύριος, καὶ ἐκεῖ εἰσιν ἕως τῆς σήμερον ἡμέρας. 32 καὶ τὰ ὀστᾶ ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἀνήγαγον οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐξ Αἰγύπτου καὶ κατώρυξαν ἐν Σικίμοις, ἐν τῇ μερίδι τοῦ ἀγροῦ, οὗ ἐκτήσατο ᾿Ιακὼβ παρὰ τῶν ᾿Αμορραίων τῶν κατοικούντων ἐν Σικίμοις ἀμνάδων ἑκατὸν καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὴν ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἐν μερίδι. 33 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ ταῦτα καὶ ᾿Ελεάζαρ υἱὸς ᾿Ααρὼν ὁ ἀρχιερεὺς ἐτελεύτησε καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν Γαβαὰρ Φινεὲς τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ, ἣν ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ ἐν τῷ ὄρει ᾿Εφραίμ. ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ λαβόντες οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ Θεοῦ περιεφέροσαν ἐν ἑαυτοῖς, καὶ Φινεὲς ἱεράτευσεν ἀντὶ ᾿Ελεάζαρ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ, ἕως ἀπέθανε καὶ κατωρύγη ἐν Γαβαὰρ τῇ ἑαυτοῦ. οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀπήλθοσαν ἕκαστος εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτῶν καὶ εἰς τὴν ἑαυτῶν πόλιν. καὶ ἐσέβοντο οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ τὴν ᾿Αστάρτην καὶ ᾿Ασταρὼθ καὶ τοὺς θεοὺς τῶν ἐθνῶν τῶν κύκλῳ αὐτῶν· καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτοὺς Κύριος εἰς χεῖρας ᾿Εγλὼμ τῷ βασιλεῖ Μωάβ, καὶ ἐκυρίευσεν αὐτῶν ἔτη δεκαοκτώ.
