Joshua 22:24-25

22:24 We swear we have done this because we were worried that 1  in the future your descendants would say to our descendants, ‘What relationship do you have with the Lord God of Israel? 2  22:25 The Lord made the Jordan a boundary between us and you Reubenites and Gadites. You have no right to worship the Lord.’ 3  In this way your descendants might cause our descendants to stop obeying 4  the Lord.

1 tn Heb “Surely, from worry concerning a matter we have done this, saying.”

2 tn Heb “What is there to you and to the Lord God of Israel?” The rhetorical question is sarcastic in tone and anticipates a response, “Absolutely none!”

3 tn Heb “You have no portion in the Lord.”

4 tn Heb “fearing.”
