And ayou lived° in the wilderness° for a long° time°. 8 Then aI 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 aBalak° 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 awas not willing° to listen° to Balaam°. So he had° to bless° you, and I delivered° you from his hand°. 11 aYou crossed° the Jordan° and came° to Jericho°; and the citizens° of Jericho° fought° against you, [and] bthe Amorite° and the Perizzite° and the Canaanite° and the Hittite° and the Girgashite°, the Hivite° and the Jebusite°.

“We Will Serve the LORD”
14 ¶ “Now°, therefore, Iafear° the LORD° and serve° Him in sincerity° and IItruth°; and put° away° the gods° which° your fathers° served° beyond° the IIIRiver° and in Egypt°, and serve° the LORD°. 15 If° it is disagreeable° in your sight° to serve° the LORD°, choose° for yourselves today° whom° you will serve°: whether° the gods° which° your fathers° served° which° were beyond° the River°, or athe gods° of the Amorites° in whose° land° you are living°; but as for me and my house°, we will serve° the LORD°.”
16 ¶ The people° answered° and said°, “Far° be it from us that we should forsake° the LORD° to serve° other° gods°; 17 for the LORD° our God° is He who brought° us and our fathers° up out of the land° of Egypt°, from the house° of Ibondage°, and who° did° these° great° signs° in our sight° and preserved° us through all° the way° in which° we went° and among all° the peoples° through whose° midst° we passed°. 18 The LORD° drove° out from before° us all° the peoples°, even the Amorites° who lived° in the land°. We also° will serve° the LORD°, for He is our God°.”

A brief history of God's benefits from Terah.
2 And Joshuaº saidºª unto² all² the people,º Thus² saithºª the LORDº Godº of Israel,º Your fathersº dweltºª on the other sideº of the floodº in old time,º² [even] Terah,º the fatherº of Abraham,º and the fatherº of Nachor:º and they servedºª otherº gods.º 3 And I tookºª² your fatherº² Abrahamº from the other sideº² of the flood,º and led¹ª² him throughout all² the landº of Canaan,º and multipliedºª² his seed,º and gaveºª him² Isaac.º 4 And I gaveºª unto Isaacº² Jacobº and Esau:º and I gaveºª unto Esauº² mountº Seir,º to possessºª it; but Jacobº and his childrenº went downºª into Egypt.º 5 I sentºª² Mosesº also and Aaron,º and I plaguedºª² Egypt,º according to that whichº I didºª amongº them: and afterwardº I brought you out.ºª² 6 And I brought¹ª your fathers¹ out²²² of Egypt:º² and ye cameºª unto the sea;º and the Egyptiansº pursuedºª afterº your fathersº with chariotsº and horsemenº unto the Redº sea.º 7 And when they criedºª unto² the LORD,º he putºª darknessº between² you and the Egyptians,º and broughtºª² the seaº upon² them, and coveredºª them; and your eyesº have seenºª² what² I have doneºª in Egypt:º and ye dweltºª in the wildernessº a longº season.º 8 And I broughtºª you into² the landº of the Amorites,º which dweltºª on the other sideº Jordan;º and they foughtºª with² you: and I gaveºª them into your hand,º that ye might possessºª² their land;º and I destroyedºª them from beforeº² you. 9 Then Balakº the sonº of Zippor,º kingº of Moab,º aroseºª and warredºª against Israel,º and sentºª and calledºª Balaamº the sonº of Beorº to curseºª you: 10 But I wouldºª not² hearkenºª unto Balaam;º therefore he blessedºª you still:¹ª so I deliveredºª you out of his hand.º² 11 And ye went overºª² Jordan,º and cameºª unto² Jericho:º and the menº of Jerichoº foughtºª against you, the Amorites,º and the Perizzites,º and the Canaanites,º and the Hittites,º and the Girgashites,º the Hivites,º and the Jebusites;º and I deliveredºª them into your hand.º 12 And I sentºª² the hornetº beforeº you, which drave them outºª² from beforeº² you, [even] the twoº kingsº of the Amorites;º [but] not² with thy sword,º nor² with thy bow.º 13 And I have givenºª you a landº for which² ye did not² labour,ºª and citiesº which² ye builtºª not,² and ye dwellºª in them; of the vineyardsº and oliveyardsº which² ye plantedºª not² do ye² eat.ºª

He reneweth the Covenant between them and God.
14 ¶ Now therefore² fearºª² the LORD,º and serveºª him in sincerityº and in truth:º and put awayºª² the godsº which² your fathersº servedºª on the other sideº of the flood,º and in Egypt;º and serveºª ye² the LORD.º 15 And if² it seem evilºª unto you¹² to serveºª² the LORD,º chooseºª you this dayº² whom¹² ye will serve;ºª whether²² the godsº which² your fathersº servedºª that² [were] on the other sideº of the flood,º or²² the godsº of the Amorites,º in whose landº ye² dwell:ºª but as for me² and my house,º we will serveºª² the LORD.º 16 And the peopleº answeredºª and said,ºª God forbidº that we should forsakeºª²² the LORD,º to serveºª otherº gods;º 17 For² the LORDº our God,º he² [it is] that brought² us up¹ª and our fathersº out of the landº² of Egypt,º from the houseº² of bondage,º and which² didºª those² greatº² signsº in our sight,º and preservedºª us in all² the wayº wherein² we went,ºª and among all² the peopleº throughº whom we passed:ºª 18 And the LORDº drave outºª from beforeº² us² all² the people,º even the Amoritesº which dweltºª in the land:º [therefore] will we² also² serveºª² the LORD;º for² he² [is] our God.º 19 And Joshuaº saidºª unto² the people,º Ye cannotºª² serveºª² the LORD:º for² he² [is] an holyº God;º he² [is] a jealousº God;º he will not² forgiveºª your transgressionsº nor your sins.º 20 If² ye forsakeºª² the LORD,º and serveºª strangeº gods,º then he will turnºª and do you hurt,ºª and consumeºª you, afterº that² he hath done you good.ºª 21 And the peopleº saidºª unto² Joshua,º Nay;² but² we will serveºª² the LORD.º 22 And Joshuaº saidºª unto² the people,º Ye² [are] witnessesº against yourselves that² ye² have chosenºª you² the LORD,º to serveºª him. And they said,ºª [We are] witnesses.º 23 Now² therefore put away,ºª [said he], the² strangeº godsº which² [are] amongº you, and inclineºª² your heartº unto² the LORDº Godº of Israel.º 24 And the peopleº saidºª unto² Joshua,º² The LORDº our Godº will we serve,ºª and his voiceº will we obey.ºª 25 So Joshuaº madeºª a covenantº with the peopleº that² day,º and setºª them a statuteº and an ordinanceº in Shechem.º
