IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 1:6

CHAPTER ONE
1And it happened after the death of
Mouses the Lord said to Iesous the son of Naue
the attendant of Mouses saying:
2”Mouses the servant of Me
has died; now therefore having
stood up go through the Jordan,
thou and all this people, into the
land, which I Myself give to
them, 3every place, on which-
ever you go on with the foot-
step of the feet of you, I will give
it to you, which manner I have
said to Mouses, 4the wilderness
and Antilibanon until the great
river, the Euphrates River, and
until the last of the sea from the
setting of the sun shall be the
borders of you. 5A man shall
not stand against before you all
the days of the life of thee, and
just as I was with Mouses, thus
I will also be with thee and I
will not forsake thee nor shall I
overlook thee. 6Be strong and

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 1
Chapter 1:7 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

manly; for thou thyself shall


apportion the land to this
people, which I swore to the
fathers of you to give to them.
7Therefore be strong and manly

to guard and to do as Mouses


the servant of Me commanded
to thee, and thou shall not turn
away from them into the right
nor into the left, in order that
thou shall understand in all,
whichever thou shall do. 8And
the book of this law shall not
depart out of the mouth of thee,
and thou shall care in it day
and night, in order that thou
shall understand to do all the
things having been written;
then prospering thou shall pros-
per the ways of thee and then
thou shall understand. 9Behold
I have commanded to thee: Be
strong and manly, thou shall
not be coward nor shall thou
fear, because the Lord the God
of thee is with thee into all,
wherever thou go.”

2 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 1:13

10
And Iesous commanded to the scribes of the
people saying:
11 ”Enter throughout the
middle of the camp of the
people and command to the
people saying:
‘Prepare provision,
because still three days
and you yourselves
shall go through this
Jordan River entering to
possess the land, which
the Lord the God of the
fathers of you shall give
to you.’”
12
And Iesous said to Rhouben and to Gad and to
the half of the tribe of Manasses:
13”Remember the word of
the Lord, which Mouses the ser-
vant of the Lord commanded to
you saying:
‘The Lord the God
of you rested you and

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 3
Chapter 1:14 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

gave to you this land.


14Let the women of you

and the children of you


and the cattle of you
dwell in the land,
which He gave to you;
and you yourselves the
well-armed shall go
through before the
brothers of you, all the
strong, and you shall
fight with them, 15until
the Lord the God of you
shall rest the brothers
of you just as also you
and these shall also in-
herit the land, which
the Lord the God of us
shall give to them; and
you shall go away each
into the inheritance of
him, which Mouses has
given to you into the
other side of the Jordan
River from the rising of
the sun.’”

4 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 2:1

16
And having answered they said to Iesous:
“All, whatsoever thou
command to us, we shall do
also into every place, wherever
thou send us, we shall go; 17ac-
cording to all, whatsoever we
heard in Mouses, we shall fol-
low thee, however let the Lord
the God of us stand with thee,
which manner He was with
Mouses. 18And the man, who-
ever shall disobey thee and who
shall not hear the words of thee
as thou command to him, let
him die but be strong and
manly.”

CHAPTER TWO
1And
Iesous the son of Naue sent out of
Sattin two young men to spy saying:
“Go up and see the land
and Jericho.”
And having gone the two young men entered into
Jericho and they entered into the house of a

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 5
Chapter 2:2 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

woman a prostitute, to whom a name Rhahab,


and they loosened there. 2And it was reported to
the king of Jericho saying:
“Men of the sons of Israel
have gone into here to spy the
land.”
3
And the king of Jericho sent and said to Rhahab
saying:
“Lead out the men who
have gone into the house of thee
during the night; for they have
come to spy the land.”
4
And having taken the men the woman hid them
and she said to them saying:
“The men have entered to
me; 5but as the gate was being
closed in the darkness, the men
also went out; I understand not
where they have gone; pursue
down behind them, if you over-
take them.”
6
And she herself made them go up on the housetop
and she hid them in the linen-reed being

6 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 2:12

arranged on the housetop. 7And the men pursued


down behind them a way on the Jordan on the
passages, and the gate was closed. And it
happened as the men who pursue down behind
them went out 8and also they rather before them
to sleep, she herself also went up to them on the
housetop 9and she said to them:
“I understand that the Lord
has given to you the land, for
the fear of you has fallen on us;
10 for we heard that the Lord

God dried down the Red Sea


from the face of you, when you
went out of the land of Egypt,
and whatsoever He did to the
two kings of the Amorrites,
who were on the other side of
Jordan, Seon and Og, whom
you destroyed them; 11 and
hearing we ourselves stood out
in the heart of us, and a spirit
stood not still in no one of us
from the face of you, because the
Lord the God of you is the God
in heaven above and on the
earth below. 12And now swear

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 7
Chapter 2:13 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

to me the Lord God, because I


shall do to you mercy and you
yourselves shall also do mercy
in the house of the father of me
13and you shall make alive the

house of the father of me and


the mother of me and the broth-
ers of me and the whole house
of me and all, whatsoever is in
them, and you shall spare the
psyche of me out of death.”
14
And the men said to her:
“The psyche of us instead
of you into death.”
And she herself said:
“As the Lord shall deliver
to you the city, you shall do
mercy and truth into me.”
15
And she let them down through the window
16
and she said to them:
“Go away into the hill
country, the men who pursue
down shall not meet you, and

8 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 2:19

you shall hide there three days,


until the men who pursue
down behind you shall return,
and after these you shall go
away into the way of you.”
17
And the men said to her:
“We are innocent to this
oath of thee; 18behold we our-
selves shall go into a part of the
city, and thou shall place the
sign, thou shall bind this scar-
let cord into the window,
through which thou let us
down through it, and thou shall
assemble to thyself the father of
thee and the mother of thee and
the brothers of thee and the
whole house of the father of
thee into the house of thee.
19And it shall be any, whoever

shall come out of the door of the


house of thee outside, shall be
guilty to himself, and we our-
selves are innocent to this oath
of thee; and whosoever shall

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 9
Chapter 2:20 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

come with thee in the house of


thee, we ourselves shall be
guilty. 20And if someone shall
do us wrong or also reveal
these words of us, we shall be
innocent to this oath of thee.”
21
And she said to them:
“Let it be thus according to
the word of you.”
And she sent them out. 22And they went and
they came into the hill country and they
remained there three days and the men who
pursue down sought out all the ways and they
found not. 23And the two young men returned
and went down out of the mountain and they
went to Iesous the son of Naue and they narrated
to him all the things which have happened to
them. 24And they said to Iesous that:
“The Lord delivered all the
land in the hand of us, and ev-
ery man dwelling that land
melted from us.”

IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 3:5

CHAPTER THREE
1And
Iesous rose up early in the morn-
ing, and they took up out of Sattin and they
came until the Jordan River and they loosened
there before the time to go through. 2And it
happened after three days the scribes went
through the camp 3and they commanded to the
people saying:
“When you see the ark of
the covenant of the Lord the
God of us and the priests of us
and the Levites taking it, you
shall take up from the place of
you and you shall go behind it;
4 but let it stand far between

you and that as many as two


thousand cubits; you shall not
draw near it, in order that you
shall understand the way,
which you shall go on it; for you
have not gone the way from
yesterday and third day.”
5
And Iesous said to the people:

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 11
Chapter 3:6 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

“Purify into the morrow,


because tomorrow the Lord
shall do wonders in you.”
6
And Iesous said to the priests:
“Take the ark of the cov-
enant of the Lord and you shall
go before the people.”
And the priests took the ark of the covenant of the
Lord and they went in front of the people. 7And
the Lord said to Iesous:
“In this day I will begin to
exalt thee before all of the sons
of Israel, in order that they shall
know, as I was with Mouses,
thus I will be also with thee.
8 And now command to the

priests taking the ark of the


covenant saying:
‘As you enter on a
part of the water of the
Jordan River, you shall
also stand in the Jor-
dan.’”

12 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 3:13

9
And Iesous said to the sons of Israel:
“Lead forth here and hear
the word of the Lord the God of
us. 10In this you shall know
that God lives in you and de-
stroying He will destroy from
the face of us the Cananean and
the Chettite and the Pherezite
and the Hevite and the
Amorrite and the Gergesite and
the Jebusite; 11behold the ark of
the covenant of the Lord of all of
the earth goes through the Jor-
dan River. 12You shall appoint
for you twelve men from the
sons of Israel, one from each
tribe. 13And it shall be as the
feet of the priests who take the
ark of the covenant of the Lord
of all of the earth shall rest in
the water of the Jordan River,
the water of the Jordan River
shall fail, and the water going
down shall stand.”

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 13
Chapter 3:14 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

14
And the people took up out of the tents of them
to go through the Jordan River, and the priests
took the ark of the covenant of the Lord before the
people. 15And as the priests taking the ark of the
covenant were entering on the Jordan River and
the feet of the priests taking the ark of the
covenant of the Lord were dipped into a part of
the water of the Jordan River -- and the Jordan
River was filled throughout the whole banks of it
as days of wheat harvest--, 16and the waters going
down from above stood, one heap stood standing
away very exceedingly far until part of
Kariathiarim, and the water going down went
down into the sea of Araba, Salt Sea, it failed until
into the end; and the people was standing before
Jericho. 17And the priests taking the ark of the
covenant of the Lord stood on the dry in the middle
of the Jordan River; and all the sons of Israel went
through the dry, until all the people completed
going through the Jordan River.

CHAPTER FOUR
1And since all the people completed go-
ing through the Jordan River, also the Lord said
to Iesous saying:

14 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 4:5

2”Having taken along men


from the people, one from each
tribe, 3order to them saying:
‘Take up out of the
middle of the Jordan
River twelve ready
stones and having car-
ried these together with
you yourselves you
place them in the en-
campment of you,
wherever you shall
camp there during the
night.’”
4
And Iesous called up twelve glorious men from
the sons of Israel, one from each tribe, 5and he
said to them:
“Lead forth in front of me
before the face of the Lord into
the middle of the Jordan River,
and having taken up from there
let each man take a stone on the
shoulders of him according to
the number of the twelve tribes

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 15
Chapter 4:6 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

of Israel, 6in order that these


shall exist to you into a sign ly-
ing through all time, in order
that when the son of thee shall
ask thee tomorrow saying:
‘What are these
stones to you?’
7 ”And
thou thyself shall
make clear to the son of thee
saying:
‘Because the Jordan
River failed from the
face of the ark of the cov-
enant of the Lord of all
of the earth, as it went
through it; and these
stones shall be to you a
memorial for the sons
of Israel until the age.’”
8And the sons of Israel did thus, as the
Lord commanded to Iesous, and having taken
twelve stones out of the middle of the Jordan
River, just as the Lord ordered to Iesous in the
completion of the crossing of the sons of Israel,

16 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 4:15

and they carried them together with themselves


into the camp and they placed there. 9And
Iesous also set twelve other stones in it in the
Jordan River in the place which was under the
feet of the priests taking the ark of the covenant
of the Lord, and they are there until the day to-
day. 10And the priests taking the ark of the
covenant stood in the Jordan River, until which
Iesous completed all things, which the Lord
commanded to announce to the people, and the
people hastened and they went through. 11And
it happened as all the people completed to go
through, also the ark of the covenant of the Lord
went through, and the stones in front of them.
12 And the sons of Rhouben and the
sons of Gad and the men half of the tribe of
Manasses went through armed in front of the
sons of Israel, just as Mouses commanded to
them. 13Forty thousand myriads well-armed
into fight went through before the Lord into war
against Jericho city. 14In that day the Lord made
Iesous to grow before all the generations of Is-
rael and they were fearing him just as Mouses,
as long as the season he lived. 15And the Lord
said to Iesous saying:

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 17
Chapter 4:16 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

16”Command to the priests


taking the ark of the covenant
of the witness of the Lord to go
out of the Jordan River.”
17
And Iesous commanded to the priests saying:
“Go out of the Jordan
River.”
18And it happened as the priests taking

the ark of the covenant of the Lord went out of


the Jordan River and they placed the feet on the
land, the water of the Jordan River rushed
throughout the area and it was going as yester-
day and third day through the whole bank.
19And the people went up out of the Jordan

River on the tenth of the first month; and the


sons of Israel encamped in Galgal throughout a
part towards the rising of the sun from Jericho.
20And these twelve stones, which he took out

of the Jordan River, Iesous set in Galgal 21say-


ing:
“When the sons of you
shall ask you saying:

18 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 4:24

‘What are these


stones?’
22”Announce to the sons of
you that:
‘Israel went
through the Jordan River
on dry land 23of the Lord
the God of us drying
out the water of the
Jordan River out of the
place in front of them
until which time they
went through, just as
the Lord the God of us
did to the Red Sea,
which the Lord the God
of us dried up in front
of us until we passed
by,’
24in order that all the na-

tions of the earth shall know


that the power of the Lord is
strong, and in order that you
yourselves shall worship the

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 19
Chapter 5:1 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

Lord the God of you in all sea-


son.”

CHAPTER FIVE
1And it happened as the kings of the
Amorrites heard, who were on the other side of
the Jordan River, and the kings of Phoinicia along
the sea that the Lord God dried up the Jordan
River out of the front of the sons of Israel in the
time for them to go through, and the minds of
them melted and were plagued, and prudence
was not in them not even one from the face of
the sons of Israel. 2And by this time the Lord
said to Iesous:
“Make for thyself sword
made of stone out of sharp rock
and having sat circumcise the
sons of Israel.”
3And Iesous made a sharp sword made
of stone and he circumcised the sons of Israel
on the place being called “Hill of the
Uncircumcision.” 4And which manner Iesous
cleansed the sons of Israel, whosoever then was
born in the way and whosoever then were un-
circumcised of the ones going out of Egypt,

20 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 5:12

5Iesous circumcised all these; 6for forty and two


years Israel walked in the wilderness of Madbar,
wherefore the majority of them of the ones go-
ing out of the land of Egypt were uncircumcised
the men who disobey the commandments of
God, to whom He also determined for them not
to see the land, which the Lord swore to the
fathers of them to give to us, land flowing with
milk and honey. 7And instead of these He
raised up the sons of them, whom Iesous cir-
cumcised on account of them to have been
throughout the way uncircumcised. 8And hav-
ing been circumcised they had quietness con-
tinuously sitting in the camp, until they were
sound. 9And the Lord said to Iesous the son of
Naue:
“In the day today I remove
the reproach of Egypt from
you.”
And he called the name of that place “Galgal”.
10
And the sons of Israel did the Passover on the
fourteenth day of the month from evening on the
west of Jericho in the other side of the Jordan River
in the field 11and they ate from the wheat of the
land unleavened and new. In this day 12the manna

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 21
Chapter 5:13 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

failed after the time for them to have eaten out of


the wheat of the land, and manna existed no
longer to the sons of Israel; and they took the
fruits of the area of the Phoenicians in that year.
13And
it happened as Iesous was in Jeri-
cho, and having lifted up the eyes he saw a man
standing before him, and the sword being
drawn in the hand of him. And Iesous ap-
proaching said to him:
“Art thou our man or of the
adversaries?”
14
And the man said to him:
“I am the chief officer of the
power of the Lord now arriv-
ing.”
And Iesous fell on face on the ground and said to
him:
“Master, what shall thou
order to thy helper?”
15
And the chief officer of the Lord says to Iesous:

22 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 6:7

“Loose the sandals out of


the feet of thee; for the place, on
which thou thyself stood, is
holy.”

CHAPTER SIX
1And
Jericho was having been closed
and besieged, and no one was going out of it
nor going into. 2And the Lord said to Iesous:
“Behold I Myself deliver
Jericho underhand of thee and
the king of it in it being able in
strength; 3and thou thyself de-
ploy the fighters around it,
4(omitted) 5And it shall be as

you shall trumpet the trumpet,


let all the people cry out to-
gether, and of them crying out
the walls of the city shall fall
automatically, and all the people
shall enter having rushed each
according to face into the city.”
6
And Iesous the son of Naue entered to the priests
7
and he said to them saying:

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 23
Chapter 6:8 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

“Command to the people


to go around and to surround
the city, and let the fighters go
along armed before the Lord;
8and let seven priests having

seven trumpets of priests go


along similarly before the Lord
and let them signify vigorously,
and let the ark of the covenant
of the Lord follow; 9and let the
fighters go along in front and
the priests the men gathering
behind the ark of the covenant
of the Lord going and trumpet-
ing.”
10
And Iesous commanded the people saying:
“Shout not, nor let any one
hear the voice of you, until
which day he himself shall de-
clare to shout, and then you
shall shout.”
11And having gone around the city the

ark of the covenant of God immediately went


away into the camp and slept there. 12And on

24 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 6:18

the second day Iesous stood up early, and the


priests took the ark of the covenant of the Lord,
13and the seven priests bearing the seven trum-

pets were going before the Lord, and after these


the fighters were going into and the rest of the
crowd behind the ark of the covenant of the
Lord; and the priests trumpeted the trumpets,
and the rest of the whole crowd went around
the city from near 14and went again into the
camp. They were doing thus on six days.
15And on the seventh day they stood up early

and went around the city six times; 16and on


the seventh way around the priests trumpeted,
and Iesous said to the sons of Israel:
“Cry out; for the Lord de-
livered to you the city. 17And
the city shall be an anathema,
it and all, whatsoever is in it,
you shall acquire for the Lord of
Sabaoth except Rhahab the
prostitute, her and whatsoever
is in the house of her. 18But you
yourselves guard exceedingly
from the anathema, lest per-
chance thinking you yourselves
shall take from the anathema

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 25
Chapter 6:19 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

and you shall make the camp of


the sons of Israel anathema and
roil us; 19and any silver or gold
or copper or iron shall be holy
to the Lord, it shall be brought
into the treasure of the Lord.”
20And the priests trumpeted the trum-
pets; and as the people heard the sound of the
trumpets, all the people together roared a great
and strong roar. And the whole wall around
fell, and all the people went up into the city.
21 And Iesous devoted it to destruction and

whatsoever was in the city from man and un-


til woman, from young and until presbyter and
until calf and donkey, in the mouth of sword.
22And Iesous said to the two young spies:

“Enter into the house of the


woman and lead her out from
there and whatsoever is to her.”
23And the two young men who spied

the city entered into the house of the woman


and they led out Rhahab the prostitute and the
father of her and the mother of her and the
brothers of her and all, whatsoever was to her,

26 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 6:27

and all the relatives of her and they set her


outside the camp of Israel. 24And the city was
burned with fire with all the things in it, how-
ever they gave the silver and gold and copper
and iron to be brought into the treasure of the
Lord. 25And Iesous made Rhahab the prostitute
to live and all the house of the father of her, and
he made her to dwell in Israel until the day to-
day, because she hid the spies, whom Iesous
sent to spy Jericho. 26And Iesous adjured in that
day before the Lord saying:
“Cursed is the man, who
shall build that city; he shall
found it in the firstborn of him
and he shall set up the gates of
it in the least of him.”
And Ozan the man out of Baithel did thus; he
founded it in Abiron the firstborn and he set up
the gates of it in the least having been kept safe.
27And the Lord was with Iesous, and

the name of him was throughout the whole


land.

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 27
Chapter 7:1 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

CHAPTER SEVEN
1And the sons of Israel were guilty of a
great guilt and they purloined from the anath-
ema; and Achar son of Charmi son of Zambri
son of Zara out of the tribe of Ioudas took from
the anathema; and the Lord was angry with
wrath to the sons of Israel. 2And Iesous sent
men into Gai, which is throughout Baithel, say-
ing:
“Spy Gai.”
And the men went up and they spied Gai. 3And
they returned to Iesous and said to him:
“Let not all the people go
up, but let about two thousand
or three thousand men go up
and let them siege the city; thou
shall not lead up there all the
people, for they are few.”
4
And about three thousand men went up and Gai
fled from the face of the men. 5And they killed
from them men of Gai into thirty and six men
and they pursued them down from the gate and
they struck them on the descent; and the heart of
the people were terrified and became as water.

28 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 7:11

6And
Iesous ripped the garments of him
and Iesous fell on the ground on face before the
Lord until evening, he and the presbyters of Is-
rael, and they cast dust on the heads of them,
7and Iesous said:

“I petition, Lord, why is it


that the servant of thee made
this people go through the Jor-
dan River to deliver him to the
Amorrite to destroy us? And if
we remained and dwelt along
the Jordan River. 8And what
shall I say, since Israel turned
back before the enemies of him?
9 And having heard the
Cananean and all the men
dwelling the land shall sur-
round us and strike us from the
earth; and what shall the great
name of thee do?”
10
And the Lord said to Iesous:
“Stand up; why is this that
thou thyself have fallen on the
face of thee? 11 The people

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 29
Chapter 7:12 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

sinned and transgressed the


covenant, which I covenanted to
them, and stealing from the
anathema they cast into the
vessels of them. 12The sons of
Israel shall not at all be able to
stand throughout the face of the
enemies of them; they shall turn
back before the enemies of them,
because they became anathema;
I will not set forth still to be
with you, if you shall not take
out the anathema out of you
yourselves. 13Having stood up
make the people holy and say to
be holy into the morrow; the
Lord the God of Israel says
these things:
‘The anathema is
in you, you shall not be
able to stand against
the enemies of you, un-
til you take out the
anathema out of you.
14 And all shall be as-

30 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 7:17

sembled early accord-


ing to tribes, and it
shall be the tribe,
whichever the Lord
shall show, lead forth
according to publics;
and the public, which-
ever the Lord shall
show, you shall lead
forth according to
house; and the house,
whichever the Lord
shall show, you shall
lead forth according to
man; 15 and whoever
was shown, he shall be
burned in fire and all,
whatsoever is to him,
because he transgressed
the covenant of the Lord
and did lawlessness in
Israel.’”
16And Iesous rose early and he led forth
the people according to tribes, and the tribe of
Ioudas was shown; 17and it was led forth ac-
cording to publics, and the public of Zarai was

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 31
Chapter 7:18 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

shown; and it was led forth according to man,


18and Achar son of Zambri son of Zara was

shown. 19And Iesous said to Achar:


“Give glory today to the
Lord God of Israel and give the
confession and announce to me
what thou did, and thou shall
not hide from me.”
20
And Achar answered to Iesous and said:
“Truly I sinned before the
Lord God of Israel; I did thus
and thus; 21I saw in the spoil a
good multi-colored mantle and
two hundred didrachma of sil-
ver and one golden wedge of
fifty didrachma and having de-
sired I took them, and behold
them having been hidden in the
ground in the tent of me, and
the silver having been hidden
under them.”
22
And Iesous sent angels, and they ran into the
tent into the camp; and these were having been
hidden into the tent, and the silver under them.

32 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 8:1

23
And they brought them out of the tent and they
brought to Iesous and the presbyters of Israel,
and they placed them before the Lord. 24And
Iesous took Achar son of Zara and led him up
into the valley of Achor and the sons of him and
the daughters of him and the calves of him and
the donkeys of him and all the sheep of him and
the tent of him and all the things being of him,
and all the people with him; and he led them up
into Emekachor. 25And Iesous said to Achar:
“Why did thou destroy us?
The Lord shall destroy thee as
also today.”
And all Israel stoned him with stones. 26And they
fell to him a great heap of stones. And the Lord
rested the fury of the wrath. On account of this
he named it “Emekachor” until this day.

CHAPTER EIGHT
1And the Lord said to Iesous:
“Thou shall fear not nor
shall thou be coward; take with
thee all the men the warriors
and having gone up go up into

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 33
Chapter 8:2 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

Gai; behold I have given into the


hands of thee the king of Gai
and the land of him. 2And thou
shall do Gai which manner
thou did Jericho and the king of
it, and thou shall take the spoil
of the cattle to thyself. And set
to thyself an ambush for the
city into the things behind.”
3
And Iesous stood up and all the people the
warrior so as to go up into Gai. And Iesous chose
thirty thousand men able in strength and he sent
them at night. 4And he commanded to them
saying:
“You yourselves ambush
behind the city; you shall not be
far from the city and all shall be
ready. 5And I and all the men
with me shall lead forth to the
city, and it shall be as the men
who dwell Gai shall come out
into a meeting to us just as also
before, we shall also flee from
the face of them. 6And as they
shall come out behind us, we

34 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 8:14

shall draw them from the city;


and they shall say:
‘These flee from the
face of us which manner
also in front.’
7”And you yourselves shall
stand up out of the ambush and
you shall go into the city. 8You
shall do according to this word;
behold I command to you.”
9And Iesous sent them, and they went

into the ambush and they sat between Baithel


and between Gai from the sea of Gai. 10And
having rose early Iesous spied the people; and
they went up he and the presbyters through-
out the face of the people on Gai. 11And all the
people the warrior with him went up and go-
ing they came out of opposite the city from east,
12and the ambush of the city was from the sea.
13(omitted)

14And it happened as the king of Gai


saw, he hurried and came out into a meeting to
them on straight into the war, he and all the
people with him, and he himself has known not

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 35
Chapter 8:15 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

that there is an ambush to him behind the city.


15 And Iesous and Israel saw and withdrew

from the face of them. 16And they pursued


down behind the sons of Israel and they them-
selves stood away from the city; 17not no one
in Gai was left behind, who pursued down not
behind Israel; and they left the city being
opened and they pursued down behind Israel.
18And the Lord said to Iesous:

“Stretch out the hand of


thee in the spear in the hand of
thee on the city - for I have de-
livered it into the hands of thee
-, and the ambush shall stand
up out in haste out of the place
of them.”
And Iesous stretched out the hand of
him, the spear, on the city, 19and the ambush
stood up out in haste out of the place of them
and they came out, when he stretched out the
hand, and they came on the city and seized it
and having hurried they burned the city in fire.
20And the dwellers of Gai looked around into

the things behind them and they were seeing


smoke going up out of the city into the heaven;

36 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 8:28

and they had no longer where they shall flee


here or here. 21And Iesous and all Israel saw
that the ambush took the city and that the
smoke of the city went up into the heaven, and
turning they struck the men of Gai. 22 And
these came out of the city into a meeting and
they were between the camp, these from there
and these from there; and they struck until not
one of them to be left having been saved and
having fled.
23And they took the king of Gai living
and they led him to Iesous. 24And as the sons
of Israel stopped killing all the men in Gai in
the fields and in the mountain on the descent,
where they pursued them down from it into the
end, Iesous also returned into Gai and he struck
it in mouth of sword. 25And the men falling in
that day from man until woman were twelve
thousand, all the men dwelling Gai, 26(omitted)
27except the cattle and the spoils in the city, all

things which the sons of Israel took as spoils


according to the ordinance of the Lord, which
manner the Lord ordered to Iesous.
28AndIesous burned the city in fire; he
set it a mound uninhabited into the age until

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 37
Chapter 8:29 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

this day. 29And he hanged the king of Gai on


gallows wood, and he was on the wood until
evening; and of the setting of the sun Iesous or-
dered and they lowered the body of him from
the wood and they threw him into the pit and
they set to him a heap of stones until this day.
30Then Iesous built an altar to the Lord the God

of Israel in the mountain of Gaibal, 31as Mouses


the servant of the Lord commanded to the sons
of Israel, as having been written in the Law of
Mouses, an altar of whole stones, on which iron
was not cast on, and he brought up there burnt
offerings to the Lord and sacrifice of salvation.
32And Iesous wrote on the stones the
deuteronomy, law of Mouses, which he wrote
before the sons of Israel. 33And all Israel and
the presbyters of them and the judges and the
scribes of them were going from within and
within before the ark, and the priests and the
Levites took the ark of the covenant of the Lord,
and the proselyte and the native, who were half
near Mount Garizin, and who were half near
Mount Gaibal, as Mouses the servant of the
Lord commanded to eulogize the people in
firsts. 34And after these Iesous thus read all the
words of this law, the eulogies and the curses,

38 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 9:3

according to all the things having been written


in the law of Mouses; 35there was not a word
from all, which Mouses commanded to Iesous,
which Iesous read not into the ears of the whole
ekklesia of the sons of Israel, to the men and to
the women and to the servants and to the pros-
elytes going to Israel.

CHAPTER NINE
1And as the kings the Amorrites in the
other side of the Jordan River heard, the men in
the hill country and the men in the field and
the men in all the seaside of the great sea and
the men towards the Antilibanos, and the
Chettites and the Cananeans and the Pherezites
and the Hevites and the Amorrites and the
Gergesites and the Jebusites, 2all came together
on it to fight out Iesous and Israel. Then Iesous
built an altar to the Lord the God of Israel, as
having been written in the law of Mouses, an
altar of whole stones, on which iron was not
cast, and he brought up there burnt offerings
to the Lord and sacrifice of salvation.
3And the men who dwell Gabaon heard
all, whatsoever the Lord did to Jericho and to

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 39
Chapter 9:4 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

Gai. 4And they themselves also did indeed with


craftiness and having come they took provisions
and prepared and having taken old sackcloths
on the donkeys of them and old wineskin of
wine and having been bound up having ripped,
5and the clouts of the sandals of them and the

sandals of them old and having been worn out


in the feet of them, and the garments of them
having become old upon them, and the bread
of them of the dry provision and mouldy and
having rotten. 6And they came to Iesous into
the camp of Israel into Galgal and they said to
Iesous and Israel:
“We have come out of a
land from afar, and now you
shall covenant to us a cov-
enant.”
7
And the sons of Israel said to the Chorrite:
“See thou dwell not in me,
and how shall I covenant to
thee a covenant?”
8
And they said to Iesous:
“We are helpers of thee.”

40 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 9:11

And Iesous said to them:


“From where are you and
you arrived from where?”
9
And they said:
“The servants of thee have
come out of a land from afar
exceedingly in the name of the
Lord the God of thee; for we
have heard the name of Him
and whatsoever He did in
Egypt. 10And whatsoever He
did to the kings of the
Amorrites, who were on the
other side of the Jordan River, to
Seon king of Esebon and to Og
king of Basan, who dwells in
Astaroth and in Edrain. 11And
having heard the presbyters of
us and all the men dwelling the
land of us said to us saying:
‘Take for your-
selves provision into
the way and you shall
go into a meeting of

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 41
Chapter 9:12 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

them and you shall say


to them: “We are help-
ers of thee, and now
you shall covenant to
us a covenant.”’
12”These are the bread, we
took them hot in the day, which
we came out to arrive to you,
and now they are dried and
having become rotten; 13 and
these are the wineskins of the
wine, which we shall fill new,
and these are ripped; and the
garments of us and the sandals
of us having been made old
from the exceedingly long way.”
14
And the rulers took the provision of them and
they asked not the Lord. 15And Iesous did to them
peace and he was covenanting to them a
covenant to keep them safe, and the rulers of the
synagogue swore to them.
16And it happened after three days af-

ter the thing to covenant to them a covenant


they heard that they are from near them, and

42 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 9:22

that they dwell in them. 17And the sons of Is-


rael took up and came into the cities of them;
and the cities of them are Gabaon and Kephira
and Beroth and the city of Iarin. 18And the sons
of Israel fought them not, because all the rulers
swore to them the Lord the God of Israel; and
the whole synagogue murmured against the
rulers. 19And the rulers said to the whole syna-
gogue:
“We ourselves swore to
them the Lord the God of Israel
and now we are not able to
touch them; 20we shall do this,
to make them live, and we shall
possess them, and wrath shall
not be throughout us on ac-
count of the oath, which we
swore to them; 21they shall live
and they shall be woodworkers
and water carriers for the
whole synagogue, just as the
rulers said to them.”
22
And Iesous called them together and said to
them:

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 43
Chapter 9:23 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

“On account of what you


deceived me, saying: ‘We are
exceedingly far from thee?’ And
you yourselves are countrymen
of the men dwelling in us; 23and
now you are cursed, it shall not
at all fail out of you a slave nor
woodworker to me and to the
God of me.”
24
And they answered to Iesous saying:
“Announce to us whatso-
ever the Lord the God of thee
ordered to Mouses the servant
of Him, to give to you this land
and to destroy us and all the
men dwelling on it from the face
of you, and we feared exceed-
ingly concerning the psyche of
us from the face of you and we
did this matter. 25 And now
behold we ourselves are under-
hand to you; as it pleases you
and as it seems to you, do to
us.”

44 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 10:3

26
And they did to them thus; and Iesous
commanded them in that day out of the hands of
the sons of Israel, and they killed them not. 27And
Iesous appointed them in that day woodworkers
and water carriers for the whole synagogue and
for the altar of God; on account of this the men
dwelling Gabaon became woodworkers and
water carriers of the altar of God until the day
today and into the place, whichever the Lord
chooses.

CHAPTER TEN
1And as Adonibezek king of Jerusalem
heard that Iesous took Gai and destroyed it -
which manner they did to Jericho and to the
king of it, thus they did to Gai and to the king
of it - and that the men dwelling Gabaon joined
to Iesous and to Israel, 2and they feared in them
exceedingly; for he knows that Gabaon is a great
city as it is one of the metropolis and all the men
of it are strong. 3And Adonibezek king of
Jerusalem sent to Ailam king of Chebron and to
Phidon king of Ierimouth and to Iephtha king
of Lachis and to Dabir king of Odollam saying:

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 45
Chapter 10:4 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

4”Come here come up to me


and help me, and we shall fight
out Gabaon; for they joined to
Iesous and to the sons of Israel.”
5
And the five kings of the Jebusites went up, the
king of Jerusalem and the king of Chebron and the
king of Ierimouth and the king of Lachis and the
king of Odollam, these and all the people of them,
and they surrounded Gabaon and they were
fighting it out. 6And the men dwelling Gabaon
sent to Iesous into the camp of Israel into Galgal
saying:
“Thou shall not exhaust
the hands of thee from the ser-
vants of thee; come up to us
quickly and succor us and help
us; because all the kings of the
Amorrites dwelling the hill
country are gathered together
against us.”
7
And Iesous went up out of Galgal, he and all the
people the warrior with him, all able in strength.
8
And the Lord said to Iesous:

46 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 10:12

“Fear them not; for I have


delivered them into the hands
of thee, not one shall be left be-
hind out of them before you.”
9And Iesous arrived on them suddenly,
he went into out of Galgal the whole night.
10And the Lord stood out to them from the face

of the sons of Israel, and the Lord struck them


with a great strike in Gabaon, and they pursued
them down the way of the ascent of Oronin and
smashed them until Azeka and until Makeda.
11And in the time for them to flee from the face of

the sons of Israel on the descent of Oronin also


the Lord threw to them stones of hail out of
heaven until Azeka, and the men who died on
account of the stones of the hail were more than
whom the sons of Israel killed with sword in
the war. 12Then Iesous spoke to the Lord, on
which day God delivered the Amorrite under-
hand of Israel, when He struck them in Gabaon
and they were destroyed from the face of the
sons of Israel, and Iesous said:
“Let the sun stand
throughout Gabaon and the
moon throughout the valley of
Ailon.”

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 47
Chapter 10:13 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

13Andthe sun stood and the moon in


standstill, until God avenged the enemies of
them. And the sun stood throughout the middle
of the heaven, it was not going into the west into
the end of one day. 14And such a day happened
not nor the former nor the last so as for God to
hear man, because the Lord fought with Israel.
15(omitted) 16And these five kings fled and they

hid into the cave in Makeda. 17And it was re-


ported to Iesous saying:
“The five kings were found
having hidden in the cave in
Makeda.”
18
And Iesous said:
“Roll stones on the mouth
of the cave and appoint men to
guard on them, 19and you your-
selves stand not pursuing down
behind the enemies of you and
take the rear of them and you
shall not let to enter into the
cities of them; for the Lord the
God of us delivered them into
the hands of us.”

48 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 10:25

20And it happened as Iesous rested and


every son of Israel smashing them exceedingly
with a great smash until into the end and the
men being kept safe were kept safe into the
strong cities, 21and all the people returned to
Iesous into Makeda sound, and not one of the
sons of Israel murmured with the tongue of
him. 22And Iesous said:
“Open the cave and lead
out these five kings out of the
cave.”
23
And they led out the five kings out of the cave,
the king of Jerusalem and the king of Chebron
and the king of Ierimouth and the king of Lachis
and the king of Odollam. 24And since they led
them out to Iesous, also Iesous called together all
Israel and the rulers of the war going with him
saying to them:
“Go before and set the feet
of you on the necks of them.”
And having approached they set the feet of them
on the necks of them. 25And Iesous said to them:

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 49
Chapter 10:26 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

“Fear them not nor shall


you be coward; be manly and
strong, because the Lord will do
thus to all the enemies of you,
whom you yourselves fight
against them.”
26And Iesous killed them and he hanged
them on five woods, and they were hanging on
the woods until evening. 27And it happened to-
wards the setting of the sun Iesous commanded
and they lowered them from the woods and
they threw them into the cave, into which they
fled down there, and they rolled stones on the
cave until the day today. 28And they took
Makeda in that day and murdered it in the
mouth of sword and they destroyed every
breathing thing in it, and it remained not in it
no one having been saved and having fled; and
they did to the king of Makeda which manner
they did to the king of Jericho. 29And Iesous
went away and all Israel with him out of
Makeda into Lebna and fought Lebna. 30And
the Lord delivered it into the hands of Israel, and
they took it and the king of it and they mur-
dered it in the mouth of sword and every
breathing thing in it, and not not even one was

50 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 10:37

left having been saved and having fled; and


they did to the king of it which manner they
did to the king of Jericho. 31And Iesous went
away and all Israel with him out of Lebna into
Lachis and sieged it and fought it. 32And the
Lord delivered Lachis into the hands of Israel,
and took it in the second day and they mur-
dered it in the mouth of sword and they de-
stroyed it, which manner they did to Lebna.
33Then Ailam the king of Gazer went up
helping Lachis, and Iesous struck him in the
mouth of sword and the people of him until
them not to be left having been saved and hav-
ing fled. 34And Iesous went away and all Is-
rael with him out of Lachis into Odollam and
they sieged it and fought it. 35And the Lord
delivered it in the hand of Israel, and took it in
that day and murdered it in the mouth of
sword, and they murdered every thing breath-
ing in it, which manner they did to Lachis.
36And Iesous went away and all Israel with him

into Chebron and they sieged it. 37 And he


struck it in the mouth of sword and everything
breathing, whatsoever was in it, there was not
having been saved; which manner they did to

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 51
Chapter 10:38 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

Odollam, they destroyed it and whatsoever was


in it.
38And Iesous returned and all Israel into
Dabir and they sieged it. 39They took it and the
king of it and all the villages of it and they
struck it in the mouth of sword and they de-
stroyed it and everything breathing in it and
they left it not not even one having been saved;
which manner they did to Chebron and to the
king of it, thus they did to Dabir and to the king
of it.
40And Iesous struck all the land of the
hill country and Nageb and the plain and
Asedoth and the kings of it, they left not any of
them having been saved; and he destroyed ev-
ery thing breathing of life, which manner the
Lord the God of Israel commanded. 41From
Kades Barne until Gaza, all Gosom until
Gabaon, 42and Iesous struck into once all the
kings of them and the land of them, because the
Lord the God of Israel fights with Israel.
43(omitted)

52 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 11:6

CHAPTER ELEVEN
1And as Iabin the king of Asor heard, he
sent to Iobab the king of Marron and to the King
of Sumoon and to the king of Aziph 2and to the
kings throughout Sidon the great, into the hill
country and into Rhaba opposite Keneroth and
into the field and into Napheddor 3and into the
seashores of the Cananeans from east and into
the seashores of the Amorrites and Hevites and
Jebusites and Pherezites in the mountain and
the Chettites under Aermon into the land of
Massepha. 4And they themselves came and the
kings of them with them just as the sand of the
sea with the multitude and horses and exceed-
ingly many chariots. 5And all these kings came
together and arrived on the same and they en-
camped on the water of Marron to fight Israel.
6And the Lord said to Iesous:

“Fear not from the face of


them, because this hour tomor-
row I Myself am delivering
them slain before Israel; thou
shall hamstring the horses of
them and thou shall burn the
chariots of them in fire.”

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 53
Chapter 11:7 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

7And Iesous went and all the people the


warrior against them on the water of Marron
suddenly and they fell on them in the hill coun-
try. 8And the Lord delivered them underhand
of Israel, and smashing them they pursued
down until Sidon the great and until Maseron
and until the fields of Massoch throughout the
east and they smashed them until not any of
them to be left having been saved. 9And Iesous
did to them which manner the Lord commanded
to him; he hamstrung the horses of them and
he burned the chariots of them in fire.
10And Iesous returned in that time and
he took Asor and the king of it; and Asor was
the former ruler of all of these kings. 11And
they killed every breathing thing in it in sword
and they destroyed all, and not any was left in
it breathing; and they burned Asor in fire.
12And Iesous took all the cities of the kings and

the kings of them and he killed them in the


mouth of sword, and they destroyed them,
which manner Mouses the servant of the Lord
ordered.
13 ButIsrael burned not all the cities
having been established, however Iesous burned

54 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 11:20

Asor alone. 14And the sons of Israel plundered


for themselves all the spoils of it, and they de-
stroyed them all in mouth of sword, until he
destroyed them, not any was left out of them
nor one breathing. 15Which manner the Lord
ordered to Mouses the servant of him, and
Mouses similarly commanded to Iesous, and
Iesous did thus, nothing not one was trans-
gressed from all, which Mouses ordered to him.
16And Iesous took all the land the hill country

and all Nageb and all the land of Gosom and


the plain and the land towards the west and the
mountain of Israel and the low lands, 17the
things towards the mountain from the moun-
tain of Achel and which goes up into Seir and
until Baalgad and the fields of Libanos under
the mountain Aermon and he took all the kings
of them and he destroyed them and killed.
18 And Iesous did war against these
kings more days, 19and there was not a city,
which Israel took not, they took all in war. 20Be-
cause it happened to strengthen the heart of
them through the Lord to meet into war against
Israel, in order that they shall be destroyed, in
order that mercy was not given to them, but
in order that they shall be destroyed, which

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 55
Chapter 11:21 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

manner the Lord said to Mouses. 21And Iesous


came in that time and he destroyed the Enakims
out of the hill country, out of Chebron and out
of Dabir and out of Anaboth and out of all the
generations of Israel and out of all mountains
of Ioudas with the wars of them, and Iesous
destroyed them. 22And not one of the Enakims
was left from the sons of Israel, but except in
Gaza and in Geth and in Asedoth there was left.
23And Iesous took all the land, as the Lord com-

manded to Mouses, and Iesous gave to them in


inheritance of Israel in partition according to the
tribes of them. And the land stopped fighting.

CHAPTER TWELVE
1And these are the kings of the land,
whom the sons of Israel killed and they inher-
ited the land of them on the other side of the Jor-
dan River from the rising of the sun from the
valley of Arnon until the mountain of Aermon
and all the land of Araba from east: 2Seon the
king of the Amorrites, who dwells in Esebon
lording from Aroer, which is in the valley,
throughout the part of the valley and the half
of Galaad until Iabok, borders of the sons of
Ammon, 3and Araba until the sea of Chenereth

56 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 12:9

throughout east and until the sea of Araba, sea


of the salts from east, way throughout Asimoth,
from Thaimon under Asedoth Phasga; 4and Og
the king of Basan was left out of the giants
dwelling in Astaroth and in Edrain 5ruling from
the mountain of Aermon and from Selcha and
the whole Basan until the borders of Gesouri
and Machati and the half of Galaad, borders of
Seon the king of Esebon.
6Mouses the servant of the Lord and the
sons of Israel struck them, and Mouses gave it
in inheritance to Rhouben and Gad and to the
half of the tribe of Manasses.
7 And these are the kings of the
Amorrites, whom Iesous and the sons of Israel
killed in the other side of the Jordan River along
the sea of Baalgad in the field of Libanos and
until the mountain of Chelcha going up into
Seir, and Iesous gave it to the tribes of Israel to
inherit according to the inheritance of them, 8in
the mountain and in the field and in Araba and
in Asedoth and in the wilderness and in Nageb,

CHAPTER THIRTEEEN
1And Iesous was a presbyter having ad-
vanced in the days. And the Lord said to Iesous:
“Thou thyself have ad-
vanced in the days, and the
land left into inheritance is
much. 2And this is the land
having been left: borders of the
Philistines, the Gesirite and the
Cananean; 3from the wilderness
throughout the face of Egypt
until the borders of Akkaron

58 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 13:7

out of the left of the Cananeans


reckoned to the five principali-
ties of the Philistines, to the in-
habitant of Gaza and to the
inhabitant of Azotia and to the
Askalonite and to the inhabit-
ant of Geth and to the
Akkaronite; and to the Hevite
4out of Thaiman and all the land

Canaan before Gaza, and the


Sidonians until Aphek until the
borders of the Amorrites, 5and
the whole land Gabli of the Phi-
listines and the whole Libanos
from the rising of the sun from
Galgal under the mountain of
Aermon until the entrance of
Emath.
6”Every man dwelling the
hill country from Libanos until
Maserephothmain, all the
Sidonians, I Myself will destroy
them from the face of Israel; but
distribute it in inheritance to
Israel, which manner I com-
manded to thee. 7And now di-

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 59
Chapter 13:8 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

vide this land in inheritance to


the nine tribes and to the half
of the tribe of Manasses: thou
shall give it from the Jordan
River until the great sea
throughout the setting of the sun,
the great sea shall be the
boundary.”
8And to the two tribes and to the half
of the tribe of Manasses, to Rhouben and to Gad,
Mouses gave in the other side of the Jordan River
throughout the rising of the sun; Mouses the ser-
vant of the Lord has given it 9from Aroer, which
is on the lip of the brook of Arnon, and the city
in the middle of the valley and the whole Misor
from Maidaba until Daiban, 10all the cities of
Seon the king of the Amorrites, who reigned in
Esebon, until the borders of the sons of Am 11and
Galaad and the borders of Gesiri and Machati,
the whole mountain of Aermon and the whole
Basan until Selcha, 12the whole kingdom of Og
in Basan, who reigned in Astaroth and in
Edrain; this was left from the giants, and
Mouses struck him and destroyed. 13And the
sons of Israel destroyed not the Gesirite and the
Machatite and the Cananean, and the king the

60 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 13:21

Gesirite and the Machatite dwells in the sons


of Israel until the day today.
14 However the tribe of Leui was not
given inheritance; the Lord the God of Israel,
this is the inheritance of them, as the Lord said
to them. And this is the distribution, which
Mouses distributed to the sons of Israel in
Araboth Moab in the other side of the Jordan
River throughout Jericho.
15 And Mouses gave to the tribe of
Rhouben according to the publics of them.
16And the borders of them were from Aroer,

which is throughout the face of the valley of


Arnon, and the city in the valley of Arnon and
the whole Misor 17until Esebon and all the cit-
ies being in Misor and Daibon and Bamothbaal
and the house of Beelmon 18 and Iassa and
Kedemoth and Mephaat 19and Kariathaim and
Sebama and Serada and Sior in the mountain
of Emak 20and Baithphogor and Asedoth Phasga
and Baithasimoth 21and all the cities of Misor
and the whole kingdom of Seon the king of the
Amorrites, whom Mouses struck him and the
governors of Madiam and Eui and Rhokom and
Sour and Our and Rhobe rulers along Seon and

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 61
Chapter 13:22 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

the men dwelling the land. 22And they killed


Balaam the son of Beor the soothsayer in the
battle.
23 And the borders of Rhouben were:
Jordan River was the boundary. This is the in-
heritance of the sons of Rhouben according to
the publics of them, the cities of them and the
dwellings of them.
24And Mouses gave to the sons of Gad
according to the publics of them. 25And the
borders of them were Iazer, all the cities of
Galaad and the half of the land of the sons of
Ammon until Aroer, which is throughout the
face of Rhabba, 26 and from Esebon until
Rhamoth throughout Massepha and Botanin
and Maanain until the borders of Dabir 27and
in Emek Baitharam and Baithanabra and
Sokchotha and Saphan and the rest of the king-
dom of Seon the king of Esebon, and the Jordan
River is the border until part of the sea of
Chenereth on the other side of the Jordan River
from east. 28This is the inheritance of the sons
of Gad according to the publics of them, the cit-
ies of them and the dwellings of them.

62 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 14:2

29And Mouses gave to the half of the


tribe of Manasses according to the publics of
them. 30And the borders of them were from
Maanaim and the whole kingdom of Basan and
the whole kingdom of Og the king of Basan and
all the villages of Iair, which are in Basan, sixty
cities, 31and the half of Galaad and in Astaroth
and in Edrain, cities of the kingdom of Og in
Basan, and they were given to the sons of
Machir son of Manasses and to the half of the
sons of Machir son of Manasses according to the
publics of them.
32These were whom Mouses gave inher-
itance on the other side of the Jordan River in
Araboth Moab in the other side of the Jordan
River throughout Jericho from east. 33(omitted).

CHAPTER FOURTEEN
1And these are the men of the sons of
Israel inheriting in the land Canaan, to whom
Eleazar the priest and Iesous the son of Naue
and the rulers of the families of the tribes of the
sons of Israel gave to them to inherit. 2They
inherited according to the lots, which manner
the Lord commanded in the hand of Iesous to the

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 63
Chapter 14:3 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

nine tribes and to the half of the tribe, 3from the


other side of the Jordan River, and to the Levites
he gave not a lot in them; 4because the sons of
Ioseph were two tribes, Manasses and Ephraim,
and a part was not given in the land to the
Levites, but rather cities to dwell and the sub-
urbs of them for the livestock and the cattle of
them. 5Which manner the Lord commanded to
Mouses, thus the sons of Israel did and they
divided the land.
6And the sons of Ioudas approached to
Iesous in Galgal, and Chaleb the son of Iephonni
the Kenezite said to him:
“Thou thyself understand
the word, which the Lord spoke
to Mouses the man of God con-
cerning me and thee in Kades
Barne; 7for I was forty years,
when Mouses the servant of
God sent me out of Kades Barne
to spy the land, and I answered
to him a word according to the
mind of him, 8and the brothers
of me going up with me dis-
couraged the heart of the

64 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 14:12

people, and I myself was set to


follow the Lord the God of me,
9and Mouses swore in that day

saying:
‘The land, on
which thou went, shall
be to thee in inheritance
and to the children of
thee into the age, be-
cause thou art set to fol-
low behind the Lord the
God of us.’
“10And now the Lord nour-
ished me, which manner He
said, this forty and fifth year
from which the Lord spoke this
word to Mouses and Israel went
in the wilderness and now be-
hold I am eighty and five years
today; 11 I am still strong as
when Mouses sent me, similarly
strong now to go out and to
enter into the war. 12And now
I request thee this mountain, as
the Lord said on that day; be-

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 65
Chapter 14:13 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

cause thou thyself heard the


word on that day. And now the
Enakims are there, strong and
great cities; if therefore the Lord
be with me, I will destroy them,
which manner the Lord said to
me.”
13 And Iesous eulogized him and he
gave Chebron to Chaleb son of Iephonne son of
Kenez in inheritance. 14 On account of this
Chebron became to Chaleb the son of Iephonne
the Kenezite in inheritance until this day on
account of him to follow the ordinance of the
Lord the God of Israel. 15 And the name of
Chebron was formerly the city of Arbok; this is
a metropolis of the Enakims. And the land
stopped the war.

CHAPTER FIFTEEN
1And the borders of the tribe of Ioudas
according to the publics of them were from the
borders of Idoumia from the wilderness of Sin
until Kades towards south. 2And the borders
of them were from south until part of the salt
sea from the bay extending on south 3and goes

66 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 15:8

through before the ascent of Akrabin and goes


around out of Senna and goes up from south on
Kades Barne and goes out of Asoron and goes
forth up into Addara and goes around through-
out west of Kades 4and goes on Asemon and
goes through until the valley of Egypt, and the
exit of the borders of it shall be on the sea; this
is the borders of them from south.
5And the borders from east: the whole
salt sea until the Jordan River. And the borders
of them from north and from the bay of the sea
and from the part of the Jordan River: 6the bor-
ders goes on Baithagla and goes along from
north on Baitharaba, and the borders goes forth
on the stone of Baion son of Rhouben, 7and the
borders goes forth on the fourth of the valley
of Achor and goes down on Galgal, which is
before the approach of Addamin, which is
throughout south on the valley, and casts
through on the water of the spring of the sun,
and the exit of it shall be the spring of Rhogel,
8and the borders goes up into the valley of

Onom on back of Iebous from south (this is


Jerusalem), and the borders cast through on the
top of the mountain, which is throughout the face
of the valley of Onom towards the sea, which is

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 67
Chapter 15:9 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

out of the part of the land of Rhaphain on north,


9and the border casts through from the top of

the mountain on the spring of the water


Naphtho and casts through into the mountain
of Ephron, and the border leads out into Baal
(this is a city of Iarim), 10and a border shall go
around from Baal on the sea and it shall go
along into the mountain Assares on back, city
of Iarim from north (this is Chaslon) and it shall
go down on the City of Sun and it shall go along
on south, 11and the border shall cast through-
out the back of Akkaron on north, and the bor-
ders goes through into Sakcharon and it shall
go along the mountain of Bala and casts through
on Iabnel, and the exit of the borders shall be
on the sea.
12And the borders of them from the sea:
the great sea shall be the border. These are the
borders of the sons of Ioudas around according
to the publics of them.
13 And he gave to Chaleb son of
Iephonne a part in the middle of the sons of
Ioudas on account of the ordinance of God, and
Iesous gave to him the city of Arbok a metropo-
lis of Enak (this is Chebron). 14And from there

68 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 15:19

Chaleb son of Iephonne destroyed the three sons


of Enak, Sousi and Thalmi and Achim. 15And
Chaleb went up from there on the men dwell-
ing Dabir; and the name of Dabir was formerly
City of Letters. 16And Chaleb said:
“Whoever takes and de-
stroys the City of Letters and
lords it, I will give to him
Achsan the daughter of me into
a woman.”
17
And Gothoniel son of Kenez brother of Chaleb
the younger took her, and he gave to him Achsan
the daughter of him to him as a woman. 18And it
happened in the time for her to go and she
counselled to him saying:
“I will request the father of
me a field.”
And she shouted out of the donkey. And Chaleb
said to her:
“What is it to thee?”
19
And she said to him:

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 69
Chapter 15:20 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

“Give to me a eulogy, be-


cause thou have given me into
the land Nageb; give to me
Golathmain.”
And Chaleb gave to her Golathmain above and
Golathmain below.
20This is the inheritance of the tribe of
the sons of Ioudas. 21And the cities of them
were: First city of the tribe of the sons of Ioudas

1And the borders of the sons of Ioseph
were from the Jordan River throughout Jericho
from east and shall go up from Jericho into the
hill country the wilderness into Baithel Louza
2and shall go out into Baithel and shall go

along on the borders of Chataroth 3and shall go


through on the sea on the borders of Aptalim
until the borders of Baithoron below, and the
exit of them shall be on the sea.
4And the sons of Ioseph, Ephraim and

sea; this is the inheritance of the tribe of Ephraim


according to the publics of them.
9And the cities which are separate for
the sons of Ephraim were between the inherit-
ance of the sons of Manasses, all the cities and
the villages of them. 10And Ephraim destroyed
not the Cananean dwelling in Gazer, and the
Cananean dwells in Ephraim until this day,
until Pharaoh the king of Egypt went up and
took it and burned it in fire, and they destroyed
the Cananeans and the Pherezites and the men
dwelling in Gazer, and Pharaoh gave it in
dowry to the daughter of him.

CHAPTER SEVENTEEN
1And the borders of the tribe of the sons
of Manasses were, because this is the firstborn
to Ioseph; Machir firstborn to Manasses father
of Galaad (for he was a man a warrior) in
Galaad and in Basan. 2And it became to the
sons of Manasses to the rest according to the
publics of them, to the sons of Iezer and to the
sons of Kelez and to the sons of Ieziel and to
the sons of Suchem and to the sons of Sumarmi
and to the sons of Opher; these are the males
according to the publics of them.

74 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 17:8

3And to Salpaad son of Opher, there


were not to him sons but rather daughters, and
these are the names of the daughters of Salpaad:
Maala and Noua and Egla and Melcha and
Thersa 4and they stood before Eleazar the priest
and before Iesous and before the rulers saying:
“God commanded through
the hand of Mouses to give to us
inheritance in the middle of the
brothers of us.”
And an inheritance in the brothers of the father
of them was given to them through the ordinance
of the Lord. 5And the lot of them fell from Anassa
and the field of Labek out of Galaad, which is on
the other side of the Jordan River; 6because
daughters of the sons of Manasses inherited an
inheritance in the middle of the brothers of them;
and the land Galaad was for the remaining sons
of Manasses.
7And Delanath became the borders of the

sons of Manasses, which is throughout the face


of the sons of Anath, and goes on the borders
on Iamin and Iassib on the spring Thaphthoth;
8it shall be to Manasses, and Thapheth on the

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 75
Chapter 17:9 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

borders of Manasses to the sons of Ephraim.


9And the borders shall go down on the valley

of Karana on south throughout the valley of


Iariel, a turpentine (oak) tree to Ephraim be-
tween the city of Manasses; and the borders of
Manasses on the north into the brook, and the
exit of it shall be the sea. 10 From south to
Ephraim, and on north to Manasses, and the sea
shall be the borders to them; and on Aser they
shall join on north and to Issachar from east.
11And it shall be to Manasses in Issachar and

in Aser Baithsan and the villages of them and


the men dwelling Dor and the villages of it and
the men dwelling Mageddo and the villages of
it and the third of Napheta and the villages of
it.
12And the sons of Manasses were not
able to destroy these cities, and the Cananean
was coming to dwell in this land; 13and it hap-
pened also since the sons of Israel were strong,
and they did the Cananeans subjects, and to
destroy they destroyed them not. 14And the
sons of Ioseph answered to Iesous saying:
“On account of what thou
made us inherit one inheritance

76 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 17:17

and one lot? And I myself am


many people, and God eulo-
gized me.”
15
And Iesous said to them:
“If thou art many people,
go up into the forest and clean
out for thyself, if the mountain
of Ephraim restricts thee”
16
And they said:
“The mountain of Ephraim
is not sufficient for us, and a
chosen horse and iron to the
Cananean dwelling in it in
Baithsan and in the villages of
it, in the valley of Iezrael.”
17
And Iesous said to the sons of Ioseph:
“If thou art many people
thou have also great strength,
and one lot shall not be to thee;
18for the forest shall be to thee,

because there is a forest and


thou shall clean it out and it
shall be to thee; also when thou

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 77
Chapter 18:1 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

destroy the Cananean, because


chosen horse is to him, for thou
thyself art stronger than him.

CHAPTER EIGHTEEN
1And the whole synagogue of the sons
of Israel was assembled into Selo and there they
pegged the Tent of the Witness, and the land
was seized by them. 2And the sons of Israel
remained, who were not given inheritance,
seven tribes. 3And Iesous said to the sons of
Israel:
“Until when shall you be
exhausted to inherit the land,
which the Lord the God of us
gave? 4Give out of you three
men out of a tribe, and going
up let them go through the land
and let them write it before me,
as he petitions to divide it.
(And they came to him, 5and he
divided to them seven parts.)
Ioudas shall stand to them bor-
der from south, and the sons of
Ioseph shall stand to them from

78 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN
IESOUS aka JOSHUA Chapter 18:9

north. 6And you yourselves di-


vide the land seven parts and
bring to me here, and I will
bring out to you an inheritance
before the Lord the God of us.
7For there is not a part for the

sons of Leui in you, for priest-


hood of the Lord is the part of
him; and Gad and Rhouben and
the half of the tribe of Manasses
took the inheritance of them on
the other side of the Jordan River
on east, which Mouses the ser-
vant of the Lord gave to them.”
8
And going up the men went, and Iesous
commanded to the men going to explore the land
saying:
“Go and explore the land
and arrive to me, and I will
bring out to you here an inher-
itance before the Lord in Selo.”
9And they went and they explored the

land and they saw it and they wrote it accord-


ing to the cities of it seven parts into a book and

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 79
Chapter 18:10 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

they brought to Iesous. 10And Iesous cast in to


them a lot in Selo before the Lord. 11And the
lot of the tribe of Beniamin went out first ac-
cording to the publics of them, and the borders
of the lot of them went out between Ioudas and
between the sons of Ioseph. 12And the borders
of them was from north from the Jordan River,
the borders shall go up forth throughout back
of Jericho from north and shall go up on the
mountain on the sea, and the exit of it shall be
Madbari Baithon, 13and from there the borders
shall go through Louza on back of Louza from
south (this is Baithel), and the borders shall go
down Maatarothorech on the hill country,
which is towards south of Baithoron below,
14 and the borders shall go through and go

around on the part looking along the sea from


south from the mountain on face of Baithoron
south, and the exit of it shall be into Kariathbaal
(this is Kariathiarin a city of the sons of Ioudas);
this is the part towards the sea.
15And the part towards south from part
of Kariathbaal, and the borders shall go through
into Gasin on the spring of water of Naphtho,
16and the borders shall go down on a part of

the mountain, which is throughout the face of

the valley of Onnam, which is out of a part of


Emekraphain from north, and shall go down
Gaienna on back of Iebous from south and shall
go down on the spring of Rhogel 17and shall go
through on the spring of Baithsamus and shall
go along on Galiloth, which is opposite to the
ascent of Aithomin, and shall go down on the
stone of Baion of sons of Rhouben 18and shall
go through throughout back of Baitharaba from
north and shall go down 19on the borders on
back of Baithagla from north, and the exit of the
borders shall be on the bay of the salt sea on
north into part of the Jordan River from south;
these are the borders from south.
20 And the Jordan River is the border
from part of east. This is the inheritance of the
sons of Beniamin, the borders of it around ac-
cording to publics. 21And the cities of the sons
of Beniamin according to the publics of them
were Jericho and Baitheglio and Amekasis 22and
Baithabara and Sara and Besana 23and Aun and
Thara and Ephratha 24 and Karapha and
Kephira and Moni and Gabaa, twelve cities and
the villages of them; 25Gabaon and Rhama and

cities and the villages of them. This is the in-
heritance of the sons of Beniamin according to
the publics of them.

CHAPTER NINETEEN
1And the second lot came out of the sons
of Sumeon, and the inheritance of them was
between the lots of the sons of Ioudas. 2And the

herited in the middle of the lot of them.

troubled from them the border of the part of
them.
48 And the sons of Ioudas went and
fought Lachis and seized it and struck it in
mouth of sword and dwelt it and called the
name of it Lasendak. And the Amorrite re-
mained to dwell in Elom and in Salamin; and
the hand of Ephraim was made heavy on them,
and they became to them into tribute. 49And
they went to possess the land throughout the
border of them, and the sons of Israel gave a
lot to Iesous the son of Naue in them 50through
the ordinance of God; and they gave to him the
city, which he requested, Thamnasarach, which
is in the mountain of Ephraim; and he built the

he gave Bosor in the wilderness in the field from
the tribe of Rhouben and Aremoth in Galaad out
of the tribe of Gad and Gaulon in Basan out of the
tribe of Manasses. 9These are the chosen cities for
the sons of Israel and for the proselyte abiding in
them to flee there for anyone who strike a psyche
unwittingly, in order that he shall not die in the
hand of the one redeeming the blood, until he
stood before the synagogue into judgment.

CHAPTER TWENTY-ONE
1And the rulers of the families of the
sons of Leui approached to Eleazar the priest
and to Iesous the son of Naue and to the tribal

And Iesous completed dividing the land
in the borders of them. And the sons of Israel
gave a part to Iesous according to the ordinance
of the Lord; they gave to him the city, which he
requested; they gave to him Thamnasarach in
the mountain of Ephraim. And Iesous built the
city and dwelt in it. And Iesous took the
swords made of stone, in which he circumcised
the sons of Israel born in the way in the wil-
derness, and he placed them in Thamnasarach.
43 And the Lord gave to Israel all the
land, which He swore to the fathers of them to
give, and they inherited it and they dwelt in it.
44And the Lord rested them from around, as He

swore to the fathers of them; no one stood up


not before them from all of the enemies of them;
the Lord delivered all the enemies of them into
the hands of them. 43He fell not from all of the
good words, which the Lord spoke to the sons
of Israel; all arrived.

CHAPTER TWENTY-TWO
1Then Iesous called the sons of Rhouben
and the sons of Gad and the half of the tribe of
Manasses 2and he said to them:
“You yourselves have
heard all, whatsoever Mouses
the servant of the Lord com-
manded to you, and you heard
the voice of me according to all,
whatsoever I commanded to
you. 3 You have left not the
brothers of you these days and
more until the day today; you
guarded the commandment of
the Lord the God of you. 4And
now the Lord the God of us
rested the brothers of us, which
manner He said to them; now
therefore returning you go
away into the houses of you
and into the land of the posses-
sion of you, which Mouses gave
to you in the other side of the
Jordan River. 5But you shall

94 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN

guard to do exceedingly the


commandments and the law,
which Mouses the servant of the
Lord commanded to us to do,
love the Lord the God of you, to
go to all the ways of Him, to
guard the commandments of
Him and to cleave to Him and
to religiously serve to Him out
of the whole mind of you and
out of the whole psyche of you.”
6
And Iesous eulogized them and sent them out,
and they went into the houses of them.
7And to the half of the tribe of Manasses
Mouses gave in Basan, and to the half Iesous
gave with the brothers of him in the other side
of the Jordan River along the sea. And when
Iesous sent them out into the houses of them
and he eulogized them, 8and in many riches
they went away into the houses of them, and
exceedingly many cattle and silver and gold
and iron and many garments, and they divided
the spoils of the enemies with the brothers of
them.

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 95
Chapter 22:9 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

9And the sons of Rhouben went and the


sons of Gad and the half of the tribe of the sons
of Manasses from the sons of Israel out of Selo
in the land Canaan to go away into the land
Galaad into the land of the possession of them,
which they inherited it through the ordinance
of the Lord in the hand of Mouses.
10And they came into Galgal of Jordan,
which is in the land Canaan, and the sons of
Gad and the sons of Rhouben and the half of
the tribe of Manasses built there an altar on
Jordan, a great altar to see. 11And the sons of
Israel heard saying:
“Behold the sons of Gad
and the sons of Rhouben and
the half of the tribe of Manasses
built an altar on the borders of
the land Canaan on Galaad of
Jordan in the other side of the
sons of Israel.”
12 And all the sons of Israel gathered

together into Selo as going up to fight them.


13 And the sons of Israel sent to the sons of

Rhouben and to the sons of Gad and to the half

96 ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN

of the tribe of Manasses into the land Galaad


both Phinees son of Eleazar son of Aaron the
high priest 14and ten of the rulers with him, one
ruler from the house of a family from all tribes
of Israel; they are rulers of houses of families,
chiliarchs of Israel. 15And they arrived to the
sons of Gad and to the sons of Rhouben and to
the half of the tribe of Manasses into the land
Galaad and they spoke to them saying:
16“Thewhole synagogue of
the Lord says these things:
‘What is this guilt,
which you are guilty
before the God of Israel,
to turn away today
from the Lord building
to you for yourselves an
altar to make you apos-
tate from the Lord?
17Not the sin of Phogor

small to us? Because


we cleanse not from it
until this day, and
plague was in the syna-
gogue of the Lord.

ARSENIA R. JOAQUIN 97
Chapter 22:18 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

And you yourselves


shall turn away from

stand away today from

the wrath shall be on
all Israel. 19And now if
the land of the posses-
sion of you is small to
you, go through into the
land of the possession of
the Lord, where the tent
of the Lord is pegged
there, and you shall in-
herit in us; and you
shall not become apos-
tates from God and you
shall not stand away
from the Lord on ac-
count of you to build an
altar outside of the al-
tar of the Lord the God

from the anathema and


wrath was on the

21
And the sons of Rhouben and the sons of Gad
and the half of the tribe of Manasses answered
and spoke to the chiliarchs of Israel saying:
22“The God God is the Lord,
and the God God Lord He Him-
self knew, and Israel himself
shall know, if in apostasy we
shall be guilty before the Lord,
He shall not rescue us in this;
23and if we shall build for them

an altar so as to stand away

as to bring up on it sacrifice of
burnt offerings or so as to do on
it sacrifice of salvation, the Lord

we did this reverence of word

‘In order that to-


morrow the children of

“And the sons of you shall
alienate the sons of us, in order

this be a witness between us

And Phinees the priest and all the rulers of the

“Today we know that the
Lord is with us, wherefore you

the God of the sons of Israel and they said to them
no longer to go up into war to destroy the land of
the sons of Rhouben and of the sons of Gad and of

on it. 34And Iesous named the altar of Rhouben

on them the sea, and covered
them, and the eyes of you saw
whatsoever the Lord did in the
land Egypt. And we were in the
wilderness more days.

8”And He led you into the


land of the Amorrites dwelling
on the other side of the Jordan
River, and they fought you, and
the Lord delivered them into the
hands of you, and you inherited
the land of them and destroyed
them from the face of you.
9 ”And Balak the son of
Sepphor king of Moab stood up
and fought Israel and having
sent he called Balaam to curse
you; 10and the Lord the God of
thee willed not to destroy thee,
and he eulogized you a eulogy,
and rescued you out of the
hands of them and delivered
them. 11And you went through
the Jordan River and arrived into
Jericho; and the men dwelling
Jericho fought against you, the
Amorrite and the Cananean
and the Pherezite and the
Hevite and the Jebusite and the
Chettite and the Gergesite, and

the Lord delivered them into the


hands of you.
12 ”And He sent out the
hornet before you, and He cast
them out from the face of you,
twelve kings of the Amorrites,
not in the sword of thee nor in
the bow of thee. 13And He gave
to you the land, on which you
labored not on it, and cities,
which you built not, and you
dwell in them; and vineyards
and oliveyards, which you
planted not, you yourselves eat.
14”And now fear the Lord
and religiously serve to Him in
uprightness, and in righteous-
ness and you shall remove the
foreign gods, which the fathers
of you religiously served in the
other side of the river and in
Egypt, and religiously serve the
Lord. 15And if it pleases to you
not to religiously serve the Lord,
choose for you by yourselves to-

day, to whom you shall reli-


giously serve, either the gods of
the fathers of you in the other
side of the river, or the gods of
the Amorrites, in which you
yourselves dwell on the land of
them; and I and the house of me
shall serve the Lord, because He
is holy.”
16
And the people having answered said:
“May it be not to us to
leave the Lord so as to reli-
giously serve different gods.
17The Lord is the God of us, He

Himself is God; He Himself led


us up and the fathers of us out
of Egypt and He guarded us in
all the way, which we went in
it, and in all the nations, which
we passed through them; 18and
the Lord cast out the Amorrite
and all the nations dwelling the
land from the face of us. But
also we ourselves shall serve the
Lord; for this is the God of us.”

Chapter 24:19 IESOUS aka JOSHUA

19
And Iesous said to the people:
“You are not at all able to
religiously serve the Lord, be-
cause God is holy, and being
jealous this will not forgive the
sins of you and the lawlessness
of you; 20if when you shall leave
the Lord and you shall reli-
giously serve different gods,
and having come He shall do
you evil and He will consume
you for which He did you well.”
21
And the people said to Iesous:
“Not, but we will reli-
giously serve the Lord.”
22
And Iesous said to the people:
“You yourselves are wit-
nesses against you, because you
yourselves chose the Lord to re-
ligiously serve to Him; 23and
now remove the foreign gods in
you and you straighten the
heart of you towards the Lord
the God of Israel.”

24
And the people said to Iesous:
“We will religiously serve
the Lord and we will hear the
voice of Him.”
25 And
Iesous set the covenant to the
people in that day and gave to him the law and
judgment in Selo before the Tent of the God of
Israel. 26And he wrote these words into a book,
the law of God; and Iesous took a great stone
and set it under the oak before the Lord. 27And
Iesous said to the people:
“Behold this stone shall be
in you into a witness, because
this has heard all the things
having been spoken to it by the
Lord, which He spoke a certain
thing to us today; and this shall
be in you into a witness on the
last of the days, whenever you
lie to the Lord the God of me.”
28
And Iesous sent the people, and each went into
the place of him.

29And it happened thereafter and Iesous


son of Naue a slave of the Lord died hundred
ten years. 30And they buried him towards the
mountains of the inheritance of him in
Thamnathasachar in the mountain Ephraim
from north of the mountain Gaas; 31and Israel
religiously served to the Lord all the days of
Iesous and all the days of the presbyters, who-
soever lived the season with Iesous and who-
soever knew all the works of the Lord, whatso-
ever He did to Israel. They placed there with
him into the tomb, into which they buried him
there, the swords made of stone, in which he
circumcised the sons of Israel in Galgal, when
He led them out of Egypt, as the Lord ordered
to them, and they are there until the day to-
day.
32 And the sons of Israel led up the
bones of Ioseph out of Egypt and they buried
in Sikim in the part of the field, where Iakob
bought from the Amorrites dwelling in Sikim
hundred lambs and he gave it to Ioseph in part.
33 And it happened after these and
Eleazar son of Aaron the high priest died and
Phinees the son of him buried him in Gabaath,

which he gave to him in the mountain


Ephraim. In that day the sons of Israel having
taken the ark of God carried in themselves, and
Phinees served as priest instead of Eleazar the
father of him, until he died and was buried in
Gabaath the thing of himself. And the sons of
Israel went away each into the place of them
and into the city of themselves.
And the sons of Israel worshipped
Astarte and Astaroth and the gods of the na-
tions around them; and the Lord delivered them
into the hands of Eglom the king of Moab, and
he lorded over them eighteen years.
