Joshua 7:24-25

Context
7:24 Then Joshua and all Israel took Achan, son of Zerah, along with the silver, the robe, the bar of gold, his sons, daughters, ox, donkey, sheep, tent, and all that belonged to him and brought them up to the Valley of Disaster. 1  7:25 Joshua said, “Why have you brought disaster 2  on us? The Lord will bring disaster on you today!” All Israel stoned him to death. (They also stoned and burned the others.) 3 

1 tn Or “Trouble” The name is “Achor” in Hebrew, which means “disaster” or “trouble” (also in v. 26).

2 tn Or “trouble.” The word is “achor” in Hebrew (also in the following clause).

3 tc Heb “and they burned them with fire and they stoned them with stones.” These words are somewhat parenthetical in nature and are omitted in the LXX; they may represent a later scribal addition.
