@Joshua:1:1 @After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, it came to pass that the LORD spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' assistant, saying:
nkjv@Joshua:1:9 @Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."
nkjv@Joshua:1:11 @"Pass through the camp and command the people, saying, "Prepare provisions for yourselves, for within three days you will cross over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land which the LORD your God is giving you to possess."'
nkjv@Joshua:1:13 @"Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, saying, "The LORD your God is giving you rest and is giving you this land.'
nkjv@Joshua:1:15 @until the LORD has given your brethren rest, as He gave you, and they also have taken possession of the land which the LORD your God is giving them. Then you shall return to the land of your possession and enjoy it, which Moses the LORD's servant gave you on this side of the Jordan toward the sunrise."
nkjv@Joshua:1:17 @Just as we heeded Moses in all things, so we will heed you. Only the LORD your God be with you, as He was with Moses.
nkjv@Joshua:2:9 @and said to the men: "I know that the LORD has given you the land, that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of you.
nkjv@Joshua:2:10 @For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were on the other side of the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed.
nkjv@Joshua:2:11 @And as soon as we heard these things, our hearts melted; neither did there remain any more courage in anyone because of you, for the LORD your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath.
nkjv@Joshua:2:12 @Now therefore, I beg you, swear to me by the LORD, since I have shown you kindness, that you also will show kindness to my father's house, and give me a true token,
nkjv@Joshua:2:14 @So the men answered her, "Our lives for yours, if none of you tell this business of ours. And it shall be, when the LORD has given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with you."
nkjv@Joshua:2:24 @And they said to Joshua, "Truly the LORD has delivered all the land into our hands, for indeed all the inhabitants of the country are fainthearted because of us."
nkjv@Joshua:3:3 @and they commanded the people, saying, "When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests, the Levites, bearing it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it.
nkjv@Joshua:3:5 @And Joshua said to the people, "Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you."
nkjv@Joshua:3:7 @And the LORD said to Joshua, "This day I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with you.
nkjv@Joshua:3:9 @So Joshua said to the children of Israel, "Come here, and hear the words of the LORD your God."
nkjv@Joshua:3:11 @Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth is crossing over before you into the Jordan.
nkjv@Joshua:3:13 @And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the waters of the Jordan shall be cut off, the waters that come down from upstream, and they shall stand as a heap."
nkjv@Joshua:3:17 @Then the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan; and all Israel crossed over on dry ground, until all the people had crossed completely over the Jordan.
nkjv@Joshua:4:1 @And it came to pass, when all the people had completely crossed over the Jordan, that the LORD spoke to Joshua, saying:
nkjv@Joshua:4:5 @and Joshua said to them: "Cross over before the ark of the LORD your God into the midst of the Jordan, and each one of you take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel,
nkjv@Joshua:4:7 @Then you shall answer them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it crossed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. And these stones shall be for a memorial to the children of Israel forever."
nkjv@Joshua:4:8 @And the children of Israel did so, just as Joshua commanded, and took up twelve stones from the midst of the Jordan, as the LORD had spoken to Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, and carried them over with them to the place where they lodged, and laid them down there.
nkjv@Joshua:4:10 @So the priests who bore the ark stood in the midst of the Jordan until everything was finished that the LORD had commanded Joshua to speak to the people, according to all that Moses had commanded Joshua; and the people hurried and crossed over.
nkjv@Joshua:4:11 @Then it came to pass, when all the people had completely crossed over, that the ark of the LORD and the priests crossed over in the presence of the people.
nkjv@Joshua:4:13 @About forty thousand prepared for war crossed over before the LORD for battle, to the plains of Jericho.
nkjv@Joshua:4:14 @On that day the LORD exalted Joshua in the sight of all Israel; and they feared him, as they had feared Moses, all the days of his life.
nkjv@Joshua:4:15 @Then the LORD spoke to Joshua, saying,
nkjv@Joshua:4:18 @And it came to pass, when the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD had come from the midst of the Jordan, and the soles of the priests' feet touched the dry land, that the waters of the Jordan returned to their place and overflowed all its banks as before.
nkjv@Joshua:4:23 @for the LORD your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before you until you had crossed over, as the LORD your God did to the Red Sea, which He dried up before us until we had crossed over,
nkjv@Joshua:4:24 @that all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty, that you may fear the LORD your God forever."
nkjv@Joshua:5:1 @So it was, when all the kings of the Amorites who were on the west side of the Jordan, and all the kings of the Canaanites who were by the sea, heard that the LORD had dried up the waters of the Jordan from before the children of Israel until we had crossed over, that their heart melted; and there was no spirit in them any longer because of the children of Israel.
nkjv@Joshua:5:2 @At that time the LORD said to Joshua, "Make flint knives for yourself, and circumcise the sons of Israel again the second time."
nkjv@Joshua:5:6 @For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people who were men of war, who came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they did not obey the voice of the LORD--to whom the LORD swore that He would not show them the land which the LORD had sworn to their fathers that He would give us, "a land flowing with milk and honey."
nkjv@Joshua:5:9 @Then the LORD said to Joshua, "This day I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you." Therefore the name of the place is called Gilgal to this day.
nkjv@Joshua:5:14 @So He said, "No, but as Commander of the army of the LORD I have now come." And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, "What does my Lord say to His servant?"
nkjv@Joshua:5:15 @Then the Commander of the LORD's army said to Joshua, "Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is holy." And Joshua did so.
nkjv@Joshua:6:2 @And the LORD said to Joshua: "See! I have given Jericho into your hand, its king, and the mighty men of valor.
nkjv@Joshua:6:6 @Then Joshua the son of Nun called the priests and said to them, "Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD."
nkjv@Joshua:6:7 @And he said to the people, "Proceed, and march around the city, and let him who is armed advance before the ark of the LORD."
nkjv@Joshua:6:8 @So it was, when Joshua had spoken to the people, that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams' horns before the LORD advanced and blew the trumpets, and the ark of the covenant of the LORD followed them.
nkjv@Joshua:6:11 @So he had the ark of the LORD circle the city, going around it once. Then they came into the camp and lodged in the camp.
nkjv@Joshua:6:12 @And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the LORD.
nkjv@Joshua:6:13 @Then seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD went on continually and blew with the trumpets. And the armed men went before them. But the rear guard came after the ark of the LORD, while the priests continued blowing the trumpets.
nkjv@Joshua:6:16 @And the seventh time it happened, when the priests blew the trumpets, that Joshua said to the people: "Shout, for the LORD has given you the city!
nkjv@Joshua:6:17 @Now the city shall be doomed by the LORD to destruction, it and all who are in it. Only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all who are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.
nkjv@Joshua:6:19 @But all the silver and gold, and vessels of bronze and iron, are consecrated to the LORD; they shall come into the treasury of the LORD."
nkjv@Joshua:6:24 @But they burned the city and all that was in it with fire. Only the silver and gold, and the vessels of bronze and iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the LORD.
nkjv@Joshua:6:26 @Then Joshua charged them at that time, saying, "Cursed be the man before the LORD who rises up and builds this city Jericho; he shall lay its foundation with his firstborn, and with his youngest he shall set up its gates."
nkjv@Joshua:6:27 @So the LORD was with Joshua, and his fame spread throughout all the country.
nkjv@Joshua:7:1 @But the children of Israel committed a trespass regarding the accursed things, for Achan the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed things; so the anger of the LORD burned against the children of Israel.
nkjv@Joshua:7:6 @Then Joshua tore his clothes, and fell to the earth on his face before the ark of the LORD until evening, he and the elders of Israel; and they put dust on their heads.
nkjv@Joshua:7:7 @And Joshua said, "Alas, Lord GOD, why have You brought this people over the Jordan at all--to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us? Oh, that we had been content, and dwelt on the other side of the Jordan!
nkjv@Joshua:7:8 @O Lord, what shall I say when Israel turns its back before its enemies?
nkjv@Joshua:7:10 @So the LORD said to Joshua: "Get up! Why do you lie thus on your face?
nkjv@Joshua:7:13 @Get up, sanctify the people, and say, "Sanctify yourselves for tomorrow, because thus says the LORD God of Israel: "There is an accursed thing in your midst, O Israel; you cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the accursed thing from among you."
nkjv@Joshua:7:14 @In the morning therefore you shall be brought according to your tribes. And it shall be that the tribe which the LORD takes shall come according to families; and the family which the LORD takes shall come by households; and the household which the LORD takes shall come man by man.
nkjv@Joshua:7:15 @Then it shall be that he who is taken with the accursed thing shall be burned with fire, he and all that he has, because he has transgressed the covenant of the LORD, and because he has done a disgraceful thing in Israel."'
nkjv@Joshua:7:19 @Now Joshua said to Achan, "My son, I beg you, give glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession to Him, and tell me now what you have done; do not hide it from me."
nkjv@Joshua:7:20 @And Achan answered Joshua and said, "Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and this is what I have done:
nkjv@Joshua:7:23 @And they took them from the midst of the tent, brought them to Joshua and to all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the LORD.
nkjv@Joshua:7:25 @And Joshua said, "Why have you troubled us? The LORD will trouble you this day." So all Israel stoned him with stones; and they burned them with fire after they had stoned them with stones.
nkjv@Joshua:7:26 @Then they raised over him a great heap of stones, still there to this day. So the LORD turned from the fierceness of His anger. Therefore the name of that place has been called the Valley of Achor to this day.
nkjv@Joshua:8:1 @Now the LORD said to Joshua: "Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed; take all the people of war with you, and arise, go up to Ai. See, I have given into your hand the king of Ai, his people, his city, and his land.
nkjv@Joshua:8:7 @Then you shall rise from the ambush and seize the city, for the LORD your God will deliver it into your hand.
nkjv@Joshua:8:8 @And it will be, when you have taken the city, that you shall set the city on fire. According to the commandment of the LORD you shall do. See, I have commanded you."
nkjv@Joshua:8:18 @Then the LORD said to Joshua, "Stretch out the spear that is in your hand toward Ai, for I will give it into your hand." And Joshua stretched out the spear that was in his hand toward the city.
nkjv@Joshua:8:27 @Only the livestock and the spoil of that city Israel took as booty for themselves, according to the word of the LORD which He had commanded Joshua.
nkjv@Joshua:8:30 @Now Joshua built an altar to the LORD God of Israel in Mount Ebal,
nkjv@Joshua:8:31 @as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded the children of Israel, as it is written in the Book of the Law of Moses: "an altar of whole stones over which no man has wielded an iron tool." And they offered on it burnt offerings to the LORD, and sacrificed peace offerings.
nkjv@Joshua:8:33 @Then all Israel, with their elders and officers and judges, stood on either side of the ark before the priests, the Levites, who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD, the stranger as well as he who was born among them. Half of them were in front of Mount Gerizim and half of them in front of Mount Ebal, as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded before, that they should bless the people of Israel.
nkjv@Joshua:9:9 @So they said to him: "From a very far country your servants have come, because of the name of the LORD your God; for we have heard of His fame, and all that He did in Egypt,
nkjv@Joshua:9:14 @Then the men of Israel took some of their provisions; but they did not ask counsel of the LORD.
nkjv@Joshua:9:18 @But the children of Israel did not attack them, because the rulers of the congregation had sworn to them by the LORD God of Israel. And all the congregation complained against the rulers.
nkjv@Joshua:9:19 @Then all the rulers said to all the congregation, "We have sworn to them by the LORD God of Israel; now therefore, we may not touch them.
nkjv@Joshua:9:24 @So they answered Joshua and said, "Because your servants were clearly told that the LORD your God commanded His servant Moses to give you all the land, and to destroy all the inhabitants of the land from before you; therefore we were very much afraid for our lives because of you, and have done this thing.
nkjv@Joshua:9:27 @And that day Joshua made them woodcutters and water carriers for the congregation and for the altar of the LORD, in the place which He would choose, even to this day.
nkjv@Joshua:10:8 @And the LORD said to Joshua, "Do not fear them, for I have delivered them into your hand; not a man of them shall stand before you."
nkjv@Joshua:10:10 @So the LORD routed them before Israel, killed them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, chased them along the road that goes to Beth Horon, and struck them down as far as Azekah and Makkedah.
nkjv@Joshua:10:11 @And it happened, as they fled before Israel and were on the descent of Beth Horon, that the LORD cast down large hailstones from heaven on them as far as Azekah, and they died. There were more who died from the hailstones than the children of Israel killed with the sword.
nkjv@Joshua:10:12 @Then Joshua spoke to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel: "Sun, stand still over Gibeon; And Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon."
nkjv@Joshua:10:14 @And there has been no day like that, before it or after it, that the LORD heeded the voice of a man; for the LORD fought for Israel.
nkjv@Joshua:10:19 @And do not stay there yourselves, but pursue your enemies, and attack their rear guard. Do not allow them to enter their cities, for the LORD your God has delivered them into your hand."
nkjv@Joshua:10:25 @Then Joshua said to them, "Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed; be strong and of good courage, for thus the LORD will do to all your enemies against whom you fight."
nkjv@Joshua:10:30 @And the LORD also delivered it and its king into the hand of Israel; he struck it and all the people who were in it with the edge of the sword. He let none remain in it, but did to its king as he had done to the king of Jericho.
nkjv@Joshua:10:32 @And the LORD delivered Lachish into the hand of Israel, who took it on the second day, and struck it and all the people who were in it with the edge of the sword, according to all that he had done to Libnah.
nkjv@Joshua:10:40 @So Joshua conquered all the land: the mountain country and the South and the lowland and the wilderness slopes, and all their kings; he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the LORD God of Israel had commanded.
nkjv@Joshua:10:42 @All these kings and their land Joshua took at one time, because the LORD God of Israel fought for Israel.
nkjv@Joshua:11:6 @But the LORD said to Joshua, "Do not be afraid because of them, for tomorrow about this time I will deliver all of them slain before Israel. You shall hamstring their horses and burn their chariots with fire."
nkjv@Joshua:11:8 @And the LORD delivered them into the hand of Israel, who defeated them and chased them to Greater Sidon, to the Brook Misrephoth, and to the Valley of Mizpah eastward; they attacked them until they left none of them remaining.
nkjv@Joshua:11:9 @So Joshua did to them as the LORD had told him: he hamstrung their horses and burned their chariots with fire.
nkjv@Joshua:11:12 @So all the cities of those kings, and all their kings, Joshua took and struck with the edge of the sword. He utterly destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded.
nkjv@Joshua:11:15 @As the LORD had commanded Moses his servant, so Moses commanded Joshua, and so Joshua did. He left nothing undone of all that the LORD had commanded Moses.
nkjv@Joshua:11:20 @For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that He might utterly destroy them, and that they might receive no mercy, but that He might destroy them, as the LORD had commanded Moses.
nkjv@Joshua:11:23 @So Joshua took the whole land, according to all that the LORD had said to Moses; and Joshua gave it as an inheritance to Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. Then the land rested from war.
nkjv@Joshua:12:6 @These Moses the servant of the LORD and the children of Israel had conquered; and Moses the servant of the LORD had given it as a possession to the Reubenites, the Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh.
nkjv@Joshua:13:1 @Now Joshua was old, advanced in years. And the LORD said to him: "You are old, advanced in years, and there remains very much land yet to be possessed.
nkjv@Joshua:13:3 @from Sihor, which is east of Egypt, as far as the border of Ekron northward (which is counted as Canaanite); the five lords of the Philistines--the Gazites, the Ashdodites, the Ashkelonites, the Gittites, and the Ekronites; also the Avites;
nkjv@Joshua:13:8 @With the other half-tribe the Reubenites and the Gadites received their inheritance, which Moses had given them, beyond the Jordan eastward, as Moses the servant of the LORD had given them:
nkjv@Joshua:13:14 @Only to the tribe of Levi he had given no inheritance; the sacrifices of the LORD God of Israel made by fire are their inheritance, as He said to them.
nkjv@Joshua:13:33 @But to the tribe of Levi Moses had given no inheritance; the LORD God of Israel was their inheritance, as He had said to them.
nkjv@Joshua:14:2 @Their inheritance was by lot, as the LORD had commanded by the hand of Moses, for the nine tribes and the half-tribe.
nkjv@Joshua:14:5 @As the LORD had commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did; and they divided the land.
nkjv@Joshua:14:6 @Then the children of Judah came to Joshua in Gilgal. And Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite said to him: "You know the word which the LORD said to Moses the man of God concerning you and me in Kadesh Barnea.
nkjv@Joshua:14:7 @I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh Barnea to spy out the land, and I brought back word to him as it was in my heart.
nkjv@Joshua:14:8 @Nevertheless my brethren who went up with me made the heart of the people melt, but I wholly followed the LORD my God.
nkjv@Joshua:14:9 @So Moses swore on that day, saying, "Surely the land where your foot has trodden shall be your inheritance and your children's forever, because you have wholly followed the LORD my God.'
nkjv@Joshua:14:10 @And now, behold, the LORD has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years, ever since the LORD spoke this word to Moses while Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, here I am this day, eighty-five years old.
nkjv@Joshua:14:12 @Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the LORD spoke in that day; for you heard in that day how the Anakim were there, and that the cities were great and fortified. It may be that the LORD will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the LORD said."
nkjv@Joshua:14:14 @Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite to this day, because he wholly followed the LORD God of Israel.
nkjv@Joshua:15:13 @Now to Caleb the son of Jephunneh he gave a share among the children of Judah, according to the commandment of the LORD to Joshua, namely, Kirjath Arba, which is Hebron (Arba was the father of Anak).
nkjv@Joshua:17:4 @And they came near before Eleazar the priest, before Joshua the son of Nun, and before the rulers, saying, "The LORD commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our brothers." Therefore, according to the commandment of the LORD, he gave them an inheritance among their father's brothers.
nkjv@Joshua:17:14 @Then the children of Joseph spoke to Joshua, saying, "Why have you given us only one lot and one share to inherit, since we are a great people, inasmuch as the LORD has blessed us until now?"
nkjv@Joshua:18:3 @Then Joshua said to the children of Israel: "How long will you neglect to go and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers has given you?
nkjv@Joshua:18:6 @You shall therefore survey the land in seven parts and bring the survey here to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD our God.
nkjv@Joshua:18:7 @But the Levites have no part among you, for the priesthood of the LORD is their inheritance. And Gad, Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance beyond the Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them."
nkjv@Joshua:18:8 @Then the men arose to go away; and Joshua charged those who went to survey the land, saying, "Go, walk through the land, survey it, and come back to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD in Shiloh."
nkjv@Joshua:18:10 @Then Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD, and there Joshua divided the land to the children of Israel according to their divisions.
nkjv@Joshua:19:50 @According to the word of the LORD they gave him the city which he asked for, Timnath Serah in the mountains of Ephraim; and he built the city and dwelt in it.
nkjv@Joshua:19:51 @These were the inheritances which Eleazar the priest, Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel divided as an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the LORD, at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. So they made an end of dividing the country.
nkjv@Joshua:20:1 @The LORD also spoke to Joshua, saying,
nkjv@Joshua:21:2 @And they spoke to them at Shiloh in the land of Canaan, saying, "The LORD commanded through Moses to give us cities to dwell in, with their common-lands for our livestock."
nkjv@Joshua:21:3 @So the children of Israel gave to the Levites from their inheritance, at the commandment of the LORD, these cities and their common-lands:
nkjv@Joshua:21:8 @And the children of Israel gave these cities with their common-lands by lot to the Levites, as the LORD had commanded by the hand of Moses.
nkjv@Joshua:21:43 @So the LORD gave to Israel all the land of which He had sworn to give to their fathers, and they took possession of it and dwelt in it.
nkjv@Joshua:21:44 @The LORD gave them rest all around, according to all that He had sworn to their fathers. And not a man of all their enemies stood against them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand.
nkjv@Joshua:21:45 @Not a word failed of any good thing which the LORD had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass.
nkjv@Joshua:22:2 @and said to them: "You have kept all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, and have obeyed my voice in all that I commanded you.
nkjv@Joshua:22:3 @You have not left your brethren these many days, up to this day, but have kept the charge of the commandment of the LORD your God.
nkjv@Joshua:22:4 @And now the LORD your God has given rest to your brethren, as He promised them; now therefore, return and go to your tents and to the land of your possession, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you on the other side of the Jordan.
nkjv@Joshua:22:5 @But take careful heed to do the commandment and the law which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways, to keep His commandments, to hold fast to Him, and to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul."
nkjv@Joshua:22:9 @So the children of Reuben, the children of Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh returned, and departed from the children of Israel at Shiloh, which is in the land of Canaan, to go to the country of Gilead, to the land of their possession, which they had obtained according to the word of the LORD by the hand of Moses.
nkjv@Joshua:22:16 @"Thus says the whole congregation of the LORD: "What treachery is this that you have committed against the God of Israel, to turn away this day from following the LORD, in that you have built for yourselves an altar, that you might rebel this day against the LORD?
nkjv@Joshua:22:17 @Is the iniquity of Peor not enough for us, from which we are not cleansed till this day, although there was a plague in the congregation of the LORD,
nkjv@Joshua:22:18 @but that you must turn away this day from following the LORD? And it shall be, if you rebel today against the LORD, that tomorrow He will be angry with the whole congregation of Israel.
nkjv@Joshua:22:19 @Nevertheless, if the land of your possession is unclean, then cross over to the land of the possession of the LORD, where the LORD's tabernacle stands, and take possession among us; but do not rebel against the LORD, nor rebel against us, by building yourselves an altar besides the altar of the LORD our God.
nkjv@Joshua:22:22 @"The LORD God of gods, the LORD God of gods, He knows, and let Israel itself know--if it is in rebellion, or if in treachery against the LORD, do not save us this day.
nkjv@Joshua:22:23 @If we have built ourselves an altar to turn from following the LORD, or if to offer on it burnt offerings or grain offerings, or if to offer peace offerings on it, let the LORD Himself require an account.
nkjv@Joshua:22:24 @But in fact we have done it for fear, for a reason, saying, "In time to come your descendants may speak to our descendants, saying, "What have you to do with the LORD God of Israel?
nkjv@Joshua:22:25 @For the LORD has made the Jordan a border between you and us, you children of Reuben and children of Gad. You have no part in the LORD." So your descendants would make our descendants cease fearing the LORD.'
nkjv@Joshua:22:27 @but that it may be a witness between you and us and our generations after us, that we may perform the service of the LORD before Him with our burnt offerings, with our sacrifices, and with our peace offerings; that your descendants may not say to our descendants in time to come, "You have no part in the LORD."'
nkjv@Joshua:22:28 @Therefore we said that it will be, when they say this to us or to our generations in time to come, that we may say, "Here is the replica of the altar of the LORD which our fathers made, though not for burnt offerings nor for sacrifices; but it is a witness between you and us.'
nkjv@Joshua:22:29 @Far be it from us that we should rebel against the LORD, and turn from following the LORD this day, to build an altar for burnt offerings, for grain offerings, or for sacrifices, besides the altar of the LORD our God which is before His tabernacle."
nkjv@Joshua:22:31 @Then Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest said to the children of Reuben, the children of Gad, and the children of Manasseh, "This day we perceive that the LORD is among us, because you have not committed this treachery against the LORD. Now you have delivered the children of Israel out of the hand of the LORD."
nkjv@Joshua:22:34 @The children of Reuben and the children of Gad called the altar, Witness, "For it is a witness between us that the LORD is God."
nkjv@Joshua:23:1 @Now it came to pass, a long time after the LORD had given rest to Israel from all their enemies round about, that Joshua was old, advanced in age.
nkjv@Joshua:23:3 @You have seen all that the LORD your God has done to all these nations because of you, for the LORD your God is He who has fought for you.
nkjv@Joshua:23:5 @And the LORD your God will expel them from before you and drive them out of your sight. So you shall possess their land, as the LORD your God promised you.
nkjv@Joshua:23:8 @but you shall hold fast to the LORD your God, as you have done to this day.
nkjv@Joshua:23:9 @For the LORD has driven out from before you great and strong nations; but as for you, no one has been able to stand against you to this day.
nkjv@Joshua:23:10 @One man of you shall chase a thousand, for the LORD your God is He who fights for you, as He promised you.
nkjv@Joshua:23:11 @Therefore take careful heed to yourselves, that you love the LORD your God.
nkjv@Joshua:23:13 @know for certain that the LORD your God will no longer drive out these nations from before you. But they shall be snares and traps to you, and scourges on your sides and thorns in your eyes, until you perish from this good land which the LORD your God has given you.
nkjv@Joshua:23:14 @"Behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth. And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which the LORD your God spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one word of them has failed.
nkjv@Joshua:23:15 @Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all the good things have come upon you which the LORD your God promised you, so the LORD will bring upon you all harmful things, until He has destroyed you from this good land which the LORD your God has given you.
nkjv@Joshua:23:16 @When you have transgressed the covenant of the LORD your God, which He commanded you, and have gone and served other gods, and bowed down to them, then the anger of the LORD will burn against you, and you shall perish quickly from the good land which He has given you."
nkjv@Joshua:24:2 @And Joshua said to all the people, "Thus says the LORD God of Israel: "Your fathers, including Terah, the father of Abraham and the father of Nahor, dwelt on the other side of the River in old times; and they served other gods.
nkjv@Joshua:24:7 @So they cried out to the LORD; and He put darkness between you and the Egyptians, brought the sea upon them, and covered them. And your eyes saw what I did in Egypt. Then you dwelt in the wilderness a long time.
nkjv@Joshua:24:14 @"Now therefore, fear the LORD, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the LORD!
nkjv@Joshua:24:15 @And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."
nkjv@Joshua:24:16 @So the people answered and said: "Far be it from us that we should forsake the LORD to serve other gods;
nkjv@Joshua:24:17 @for the LORD our God is He who brought us and our fathers up out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, who did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way that we went and among all the people through whom we passed.
nkjv@Joshua:24:18 @And the LORD drove out from before us all the people, including the Amorites who dwelt in the land. We also will serve the LORD, for He is our God."
nkjv@Joshua:24:19 @But Joshua said to the people, "You cannot serve the LORD, for He is a holy God. He is a jealous God; He will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins.
nkjv@Joshua:24:20 @If you forsake the LORD and serve foreign gods, then He will turn and do you harm and consume you, after He has done you good."
nkjv@Joshua:24:21 @And the people said to Joshua, "No, but we will serve the LORD!"
nkjv@Joshua:24:22 @So Joshua said to the people, "You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen the LORD for yourselves, to serve Him." And they said, "We are witnesses!"
nkjv@Joshua:24:23 @"Now therefore," he said, "put away the foreign gods which are among you, and incline your heart to the LORD God of Israel."
nkjv@Joshua:24:24 @And the people said to Joshua, "The LORD our God we will serve, and His voice we will obey!"
nkjv@Joshua:24:26 @Then 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 that was by the sanctuary of the LORD.
nkjv@Joshua:24:27 @And Joshua said to all the people, "Behold, this stone shall be a witness to us, for it has heard all the words of the LORD which He spoke to us. It shall therefore be a witness to you, lest you deny your God."
nkjv@Joshua:24:29 @Now it came to pass after these things that Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being one hundred and ten years old.
nkjv@Joshua:24:31 @Israel served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua, who had known all the works of the LORD which He had done for Israel.
nkjv@Judges:1:1 @Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass that the children of Israel asked the LORD, saying, "Who shall be first to go up for us against the Canaanites to fight against them?"
nkjv@Judges:1:2 @And the LORD said, "Judah shall go up. Indeed I have delivered the land into his hand."
nkjv@Judges:1:4 @Then Judah went up, and the LORD delivered the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hand; and they killed ten thousand men at Bezek.
nkjv@Judges:1:19 @So the LORD was with Judah. And they drove out the mountaineers, but they could not drive out the inhabitants of the lowland, because they had chariots of iron.
nkjv@Judges:1:22 @And the house of Joseph also went up against Bethel, and the LORD was with them.
nkjv@Judges:2:1 @Then the Angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said: "I led you up from Egypt and brought you to the land of which I swore to your fathers; and I said, "I will never break My covenant with you.
nkjv@Judges:2:4 @So it was, when the Angel of the LORD spoke these words to all the children of Israel, that the people lifted up their voices and wept.
nkjv@Judges:2:5 @Then they called the name of that place Bochim; and they sacrificed there to the LORD.
nkjv@Judges:2:7 @So the people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great works of the LORD which He had done for Israel.
nkjv@Judges:2:8 @Now Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died when he was one hundred and ten years old.
nkjv@Judges:2:10 @When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the LORD nor the work which He had done for Israel.
nkjv@Judges:2:11 @Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served the Baals;
nkjv@Judges:2:12 @and they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, who had brought them out of the land of Egypt; and they followed other gods from among the gods of the people who were all around them, and they bowed down to them; and they provoked the LORD to anger.
nkjv@Judges:2:13 @They forsook the LORD and served Baal and the Ashtoreths.
nkjv@Judges:2:14 @And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel. So He delivered them into the hands of plunderers who despoiled them; and He sold them into the hands of their enemies all around, so that they could no longer stand before their enemies.
nkjv@Judges:2:15 @Wherever they went out, the hand of the LORD was against them for calamity, as the LORD had said, and as the LORD had sworn to them. And they were greatly distressed.
nkjv@Judges:2:16 @Nevertheless, the LORD raised up judges who delivered them out of the hand of those who plundered them.
nkjv@Judges:2:17 @Yet they would not listen to their judges, but they played the harlot with other gods, and bowed down to them. They turned quickly from the way in which their fathers walked, in obeying the commandments of the LORD; they did not do so.
nkjv@Judges:2:18 @And when the LORD raised up judges for them, the LORD was with the judge and delivered them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge; for the LORD was moved to pity by their groaning because of those who oppressed them and harassed them.
nkjv@Judges:2:20 @Then the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel; and He said, "Because this nation has transgressed My covenant which I commanded their fathers, and has not heeded My voice,
nkjv@Judges:2:22 @so that through them I may test Israel, whether they will keep the ways of the LORD, to walk in them as their fathers kept them, or not."
nkjv@Judges:2:23 @Therefore the LORD left those nations, without driving them out immediately; nor did He deliver them into the hand of Joshua.
nkjv@Judges:3:1 @Now these are the nations which the LORD left, that He might test Israel by them, that is, all who had not known any of the wars in Canaan
nkjv@Judges:3:3 @namely, five lords of the Philistines, all the Canaanites, the Sidonians, and the Hivites who dwelt in Mount Lebanon, from Mount Baal Hermon to the entrance of Hamath.
nkjv@Judges:3:4 @And they were left, that He might test Israel by them, to know whether they would obey the commandments of the LORD, which He had commanded their fathers by the hand of Moses.
nkjv@Judges:3:7 @So the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD. They forgot the LORD their God, and served the Baals and Asherahs.
nkjv@Judges:3:8 @Therefore the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and He sold them into the hand of Cushan-Rishathaim king of Mesopotamia; and the children of Israel served Cushan-Rishathaim eight years.
nkjv@Judges:3:9 @When the children of Israel cried out to the LORD, the LORD raised up a deliverer for the children of Israel, who delivered them: Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother.
nkjv@Judges:3:10 @The Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he judged Israel. He went out to war, and the LORD delivered Cushan-Rishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand; and his hand prevailed over Cushan-Rishathaim.
nkjv@Judges:3:12 @And the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the LORD. So the LORD strengthened Eglon king of Moab against Israel, because they had done evil in the sight of the LORD.
nkjv@Judges:3:15 @But when the children of Israel cried out to the LORD, the LORD raised up a deliverer for them: Ehud the son of Gera, the Benjamite, a left-handed man. By him the children of Israel sent tribute to Eglon king of Moab.
nkjv@Judges:3:28 @Then he said to them, "Follow me, for the LORD has delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand." So they went down after him, seized the fords of the Jordan leading to Moab, and did not allow anyone to cross over.
nkjv@Judges:4:1 @When Ehud was dead, the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the LORD.
nkjv@Judges:4:2 @So the LORD sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor. The commander of his army was Sisera, who dwelt in Harosheth Hagoyim.
nkjv@Judges:4:3 @And the children of Israel cried out to the LORD; for Jabin had nine hundred chariots of iron, and for twenty years he had harshly oppressed the children of Israel.
nkjv@Judges:4:6 @Then she sent and called for Barak the son of Abinoam from Kedesh in Naphtali, and said to him, "Has not the LORD God of Israel commanded, "Go and deploy troops at Mount Tabor; take with you ten thousand men of the sons of Naphtali and of the sons of Zebulun;
nkjv@Judges:4:9 @So she said, "I will surely go with you; nevertheless there will be no glory for you in the journey you are taking, for the LORD will sell Sisera into the hand of a woman." Then Deborah arose and went with Barak to Kedesh.
nkjv@Judges:4:14 @Then Deborah said to Barak, "Up! For this is the day in which the LORD has delivered Sisera into your hand. Has not the LORD gone out before you?" So Barak went down from Mount Tabor with ten thousand men following him.
nkjv@Judges:4:15 @And the LORD routed Sisera and all his chariots and all his army with the edge of the sword before Barak; and Sisera alighted from his chariot and fled away on foot.
nkjv@Judges:4:18 @And Jael went out to meet Sisera, and said to him, "Turn aside, my lord, turn aside to me; do not fear." And when he had turned aside with her into the tent, she covered him with a blanket.
nkjv@Judges:5:2 @"When leaders lead in Israel, When the people willingly offer themselves, Bless the LORD!
nkjv@Judges:5:3 @"Hear, O kings! Give ear, O princes! I, even I, will sing to the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel.
nkjv@Judges:5:4 @"LORD, when You went out from Seir, When You marched from the field of Edom, The earth trembled and the heavens poured, The clouds also poured water;
nkjv@Judges:5:5 @The mountains gushed before the LORD, This Sinai, before the LORD God of Israel.
nkjv@Judges:5:9 @My heart is with the rulers of Israel Who offered themselves willingly with the people. Bless the LORD!
nkjv@Judges:5:11 @Far from the noise of the archers, among the watering places, There they shall recount the righteous acts of the LORD, The righteous acts for His villagers in Israel; Then the people of the LORD shall go down to the gates.
nkjv@Judges:5:13 @"Then the survivors came down, the people against the nobles; The LORD came down for me against the mighty.
nkjv@Judges:5:23 @"Curse Meroz,' said the angel of the LORD, "Curse its inhabitants bitterly, Because they did not come to the help of the LORD, To the help of the LORD against the mighty.'
nkjv@Judges:5:25 @He asked for water, she gave milk; She brought out cream in a lordly bowl.
nkjv@Judges:5:31 @"Thus let all Your enemies perish, O LORD! But let those who love Him be like the sun When it comes out in full strength." So the land had rest for forty years.
nkjv@Judges:6:1 @Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD. So the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian for seven years,
nkjv@Judges:6:6 @So Israel was greatly impoverished because of the Midianites, and the children of Israel cried out to the LORD.
nkjv@Judges:6:7 @And it came to pass, when the children of Israel cried out to the LORD because of the Midianites,
nkjv@Judges:6:8 @that the LORD sent a prophet to the children of Israel, who said to them, "Thus says the LORD God of Israel: "I brought you up from Egypt and brought you out of the house of bondage;
nkjv@Judges:6:10 @Also I said to you, "I am the LORD your God; do not fear the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell." But you have not obeyed My voice."'
nkjv@Judges:6:11 @Now the Angel of the LORD came and sat under the terebinth tree which was in Ophrah, which belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, while his son Gideon threshed wheat in the winepress, in order to hide it from the Midianites.
nkjv@Judges:6:12 @And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him, and said to him, "The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valor!"
nkjv@Judges:6:13 @Gideon said to Him, "O my lord, if the LORD is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles which our fathers told us about, saying, "Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt?' But now the LORD has forsaken us and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites."
nkjv@Judges:6:14 @Then the LORD turned to him and said, "Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?"
nkjv@Judges:6:15 @So he said to Him, "O my Lord, how can I save Israel? Indeed my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house."
nkjv@Judges:6:16 @And the LORD said to him, "Surely I will be with you, and you shall defeat the Midianites as one man."
nkjv@Judges:6:21 @Then the Angel of the LORD put out the end of the staff that was in His hand, and touched the meat and the unleavened bread; and fire rose out of the rock and consumed the meat and the unleavened bread. And the Angel of the LORD departed out of his sight.
nkjv@Judges:6:22 @Now Gideon perceived that He was the Angel of the LORD. So Gideon said, "Alas, O Lord GOD! For I have seen the Angel of the LORD face to face."
nkjv@Judges:6:23 @Then the LORD said to him, "Peace be with you; do not fear, you shall not die."
nkjv@Judges:6:24 @So Gideon built an altar there to the LORD, and called it The-LORD-Is-Peace. To this day it is still in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.
nkjv@Judges:6:25 @Now it came to pass the same night that the LORD said to him, "Take your father's young bull, the second bull of seven years old, and tear down the altar of Baal that your father has, and cut down the wooden image that is beside it;
nkjv@Judges:6:26 @and build an altar to the LORD your God on top of this rock in the proper arrangement, and take the second bull and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the image which you shall cut down."
nkjv@Judges:6:27 @So Gideon took ten men from among his servants and did as the LORD had said to him. But because he feared his father's household and the men of the city too much to do it by day, he did it by night.
nkjv@Judges:6:34 @But the Spirit of the LORD came upon Gideon; then he blew the trumpet, and the Abiezrites gathered behind him.
nkjv@Judges:7:2 @And the LORD said to Gideon, "The people who are with you are too many for Me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel claim glory for itself against Me, saying, "My own hand has saved me.'
nkjv@Judges:7:4 @But the LORD said to Gideon, "The people are still too many; bring them down to the water, and I will test them for you there. Then it will be, that of whom I say to you, "This one shall go with you,' the same shall go with you; and of whomever I say to you, "This one shall not go with you,' the same shall not go."
nkjv@Judges:7:5 @So he brought the people down to the water. And the LORD said to Gideon, "Everyone who laps from the water with his tongue, as a dog laps, you shall set apart by himself; likewise everyone who gets down on his knees to drink."
nkjv@Judges:7:7 @Then the LORD said to Gideon, "By the three hundred men who lapped I will save you, and deliver the Midianites into your hand. Let all the other people go, every man to his place."
nkjv@Judges:7:9 @It happened on the same night that the LORD said to him, "Arise, go down against the camp, for I have delivered it into your hand.
nkjv@Judges:7:15 @And so it was, when Gideon heard the telling of the dream and its interpretation, that he worshiped. He returned to the camp of Israel, and said, "Arise, for the LORD has delivered the camp of Midian into your hand."
nkjv@Judges:7:18 @When I blow the trumpet, I and all who are with me, then you also blow the trumpets on every side of the whole camp, and say, "The sword of the LORD and of Gideon!"'
nkjv@Judges:7:20 @Then the three companies blew the trumpets and broke the pitchers--they held the torches in their left hands and the trumpets in their right hands for blowing--and they cried, "The sword of the LORD and of Gideon!"
nkjv@Judges:7:22 @When the three hundred blew the trumpets, the LORD set every man's sword against his companion throughout the whole camp; and the army fled to Beth Acacia, toward Zererah, as far as the border of Abel Meholah, by Tabbath.
nkjv@Judges:8:7 @So Gideon said, "For this cause, when the LORD has delivered Zebah and Zalmunna into my hand, then I will tear your flesh with the thorns of the wilderness and with briers!"
nkjv@Judges:8:19 @Then he said, "They were my brothers, the sons of my mother. As the LORD lives, if you had let them live, I would not kill you."
