Joshua 24:14-15

Context

24:14 Now 1  obey 2  the Lord and worship 3  him with integrity and loyalty. Put aside the gods your ancestors 4  worshiped 5  beyond the Euphrates 6  and in Egypt and worship 7  the Lord. 24:15 If you have no desire 8  to worship 9  the Lord, choose today whom you will worship, 10  whether it be the gods whom your ancestors 11  worshiped 12  beyond the Euphrates, 13  or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living. But I and my family 14  will worship 15  the Lord!”
