Joshua 22:1-34

Then Joshua
<03091>
called
<07121> (8799)
the Reubenites
<07206>_,
and the Gadites
<01425>_,
and the half
<02677>
tribe
<04294>
of Manasseh
<04519>_,
And said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Ye have kept
<08104> (8804)
all that Moses
<04872>
the servant
<05650>
of the LORD
<03068>
commanded
<06680> (8765)
you, and have obeyed
<08085> (8799)
my voice
<06963>
in all that I commanded
<06680> (8765)
you:
Ye have not left
<05800> (8804)
your brethren
<0251>
these many
<07227>
days
<03117>
unto this day
<03117>_,
but have kept
<08104> (8804)
the charge
<04931>
of the commandment
<04687>
of the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_.
And now the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>
hath given rest
<05117> (8689)
unto your brethren
<0251>_,
as he promised
<01696> (8765)
them: therefore now return
<06437> (8798)
ye, and get
<03212> (8798)
you unto your tents
<0168>_,
[and] unto the land
<0776>
of your possession
<0272>_,
which Moses
<04872>
the servant
<05650>
of the LORD
<03068>
gave
<05414> (8804)
you on the other side
<05676>
Jordan
<03383>_.
But take diligent
<03966>
heed
<08104> (8798)
to do
<06213> (8800)
the commandment
<04687>
and the law
<08451>_,
which Moses
<04872>
the servant
<05650>
of the LORD
<03068>
charged
<06680> (8765)
you, to love
<0157> (8800)
the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_,
and to walk
<03212> (8800)
in all his ways
<01870>_,
and to keep
<08104> (8800)
his commandments
<04687>_,
and to cleave
<01692> (8800)
unto him, and to serve
<05647> (8800)
him with all your heart
<03824>
and with all your soul
<05315>_.
So Joshua
<03091>
blessed
<01288> (8762)
them, and sent them away
<07971> (8762)_:
and they went
<03212> (8799)
unto their tents
<0168>_.
Now to the [one] half
<02677>
of the tribe
<07626>
of Manasseh
<04519>
Moses
<04872>
had given
<05414> (8804)
[possession] in Bashan
<01316>_:
but unto the [other] half
<02677>
thereof gave
<05414> (8804)
Joshua
<03091>
among
<05973>
their brethren
<0251>
on this side
<05676>
Jordan
<03383>
westward
<03220>_.
And when Joshua
<03091>
sent them away
<07971> (8765)
also unto their tents
<0168>_,
then he blessed
<01288> (8762)
them,
And he spake
<0559> (8799)
unto them, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Return
<07725> (8798)
with much
<07227>
riches
<05233>
unto your tents
<0168>_,
and with very
<03966>
much
<07227>
cattle
<04735>_,
with silver
<03701>_,
and with gold
<02091>_,
and with brass
<05178>_,
and with iron
<01270>_,
and with very
<03966>
much
<07235> (8687)
raiment
<08008>_:
divide
<02505> (8798)
the spoil
<07998>
of your enemies
<0341> (8802)
with your brethren
<0251>_.
And the children
<01121>
of Reuben
<07205>
and the children
<01121>
of Gad
<01410>
and the half
<02677>
tribe
<07626>
of Manasseh
<04519>
returned
<07725> (8799)_,
and departed
<03212> (8799)
from the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
out of Shiloh
<07887>_,
which [is] in the land
<0776>
of Canaan
<03667>_,
to go
<03212> (8800)
unto the country
<0776>
of Gilead
<01568>_,
to the land
<0776>
of their possession
<0272>_,
whereof they were possessed
<0270> (8738)_,
according to the word
<06310>
of the LORD
<03068>
by the hand
<03027>
of Moses
<04872>_.
And when they came
<0935> (8799)
unto the borders
<01552>
of Jordan
<03383>_,
that [are] in the land
<0776>
of Canaan
<03667>_,
the children
<01121>
of Reuben
<07205>
and the children
<01121>
of Gad
<01410>
and the half
<02677>
tribe
<07626>
of Manasseh
<04519>
built
<01129> (8799)
there an altar
<04196>
by Jordan
<03383>_,
a great
<01419>
altar
<04196>
to see to
<04758>_.
And the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
heard
<08085> (8799)
say
<0559> (8800)_,
Behold, the children
<01121>
of Reuben
<07205>
and the children
<01121>
of Gad
<01410>
and the half
<02677>
tribe
<07626>
of Manasseh
<04519>
have built
<01129> (8804)
an altar
<04196>
over against
<04136>
the land
<0776>
of Canaan
<03667>_,
in the borders
<01552>
of Jordan
<03383>_,
at the passage
<05676>
of the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_.
And when the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
heard
<08085> (8799)
[of it], the whole congregation
<05712>
of the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
gathered themselves together
<06950> (8735)
at Shiloh
<07887>_,
to go up
<05927> (8800)
to war
<06635>
against them.
And the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
sent
<07971> (8799)
unto the children
<01121>
of Reuben
<07205>_,
and to the children
<01121>
of Gad
<01410>_,
and to the half
<02677>
tribe
<07626>
of Manasseh
<04519>_,
into the land
<0776>
of Gilead
<01568>_,
Phinehas
<06372>
the son
<01121>
of Eleazar
<0499>
the priest
<03548>_,
And with him ten
<06235>
princes
<05387>_,
of each
<0259> <0259>
chief
<05387> <05387>
house
<01004>
a prince
<01>
throughout all the tribes
<04294>
of Israel
<03478>_;
and each one
<0376>
[was] an head
<07218>
of the house
<01004>
of their fathers
<01>
among the thousands
<0505>
of Israel
<03478>_.
{chief...: Heb. house of the father}
And they came
<0935> (8799)
unto the children
<01121>
of Reuben
<07205>_,
and to the children
<01121>
of Gad
<01410>_,
and to the half
<02677>
tribe
<07626>
of Manasseh
<04519>_,
unto the land
<0776>
of Gilead
<01568>_,
and they spake
<01696> (8762)
with them, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the whole congregation
<05712>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
What trespass
<04604>
[is] this that ye have committed
<04603> (8804)
against the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
to turn away
<07725> (8800)
this day
<03117>
from following
<0310>
the LORD
<03068>_,
in that ye have builded
<01129> (8800)
you an altar
<04196>_,
that ye might rebel
<04775> (8800)
this day
<03117>
against the LORD
<03068>_?
[Is] the iniquity
<05771>
of Peor
<06465>
too little
<04592>
for us, from which we are not cleansed
<02891> (8694)
until this day
<03117>_,
although there was a plague
<05063>
in the congregation
<05712>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
But that ye must turn away
<07725> (8799)
this day
<03117>
from following
<0310>
the LORD
<03068>_?
and it will be, [seeing] ye rebel
<04775> (8799)
to day
<03117>
against the LORD
<03068>_,
that to morrow
<04279>
he will be wroth
<07107> (8799)
with the whole congregation
<05712>
of Israel
<03478>_.
Notwithstanding
<0389>_,
if the land
<0776>
of your possession
<0272>
[be] unclean
<02931>_,
[then] pass ye over
<05674> (8798)
unto the land
<0776>
of the possession
<0272>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
wherein the LORD'S
<03068>
tabernacle
<04908>
dwelleth
<07931> (8804)_,
and take possession
<0270> (8734)
among
<08432>
us: but rebel
<04775> (8799)
not against the LORD
<03068>_,
nor
<0408>
rebel
<04775> (8799)
against us, in building
<01129> (8800)
you an altar
<04196>
beside
<01107>
the altar
<04196>
of the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>_.
Did not Achan
<05912>
the son
<01121>
of Zerah
<02226>
commit
<04603> (8804)
a trespass
<04604>
in the accursed thing
<02764>_,
and wrath
<07110>
fell
<01961> (8804)
on all the congregation
<05712>
of Israel
<03478>_?
and that man
<0376>
perished
<01478> (8804)
not alone
<0259>
in his iniquity
<05771>_.
Then the children
<01121>
of Reuben
<07205>
and the children
<01121>
of Gad
<01410>
and the half
<02677>
tribe
<07626>
of Manasseh
<04519>
answered
<06030> (8799)_,
and said
<01696> (8762)
unto the heads
<07218>
of the thousands
<0505>
of Israel
<03478>_,
The LORD
<03068>
God
<0410>
of gods
<0430>_,
the LORD
<03068>
God
<0410>
of gods
<0430>_,
he knoweth
<03045> (8802)_,
and Israel
<03478>
he shall know
<03045> (8799)_;
if [it be] in rebellion
<04777>_,
or if in transgression
<04604>
against the LORD
<03068>_,
(save
<03467> (8686)
us not this day
<03117>,)
That we have built
<01129> (8800)
us an altar
<04196>
to turn
<07725> (8800)
from following
<0310>
the LORD
<03068>_,
or if to offer
<05927> (8687)
thereon burnt offering
<05930>
or meat offering
<04503>_,
or if to offer
<06213> (8800)
peace
<08002>
offerings
<02077>
thereon, let the LORD
<03068>
himself require
<01245> (8762)
[it];
And if we have not [rather] done
<06213> (8804)
it for fear
<01674>
of [this] thing
<01697>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
In time to come
<04279>
your children
<01121>
might speak
<0559> (8799)
unto our children
<01121>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
What have ye to do with the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_?
{In time...: Heb. To morrow}
For the LORD
<03068>
hath made
<05414> (8804)
Jordan
<03383>
a border
<01366>
between us and you, ye children
<01121>
of Reuben
<07205>
and children
<01121>
of Gad
<01410>_;
ye have no part
<02506>
in the LORD
<03068>_:
so shall your children
<01121>
make
<07673> (0)
our children
<01121>
cease
<07673> (8689)
from
<01115>
fearing
<03372> (8800)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Therefore we said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let us now prepare
<06213> (8799)
to build
<01129> (8800)
us an altar
<04196>_,
not for burnt offering
<05930>_,
nor for sacrifice
<02077>_:
But [that] it [may be] a witness
<05707>
between us, and you, and our generations
<01755>
after
<0310>
us, that we might do
<05647> (8800)
the service
<05656>
of the LORD
<03068>
before
<06440>
him with our burnt offerings
<05930>_,
and with our sacrifices
<02077>_,
and with our peace offerings
<08002>_;
that your children
<01121>
may not say
<0559> (8799)
to our children
<01121>
in time to come
<04279>_,
Ye have no part
<02506>
in the LORD
<03068>_.
Therefore said
<0559> (8799)
we, that it shall be, when they should [so] say
<0559> (8799)
to us or to our generations
<01755>
in time to come
<04279>_,
that we may say
<0559> (8804)
[again], Behold
<07200> (8798)
the pattern
<08403>
of the altar
<04196>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
which our fathers
<01>
made
<06213> (8804)_,
not for burnt offerings
<05930>_,
nor for sacrifices
<02077>_;
but it [is] a witness
<05707>
between us and you.
God forbid
<02486>
that we should rebel
<04775> (8800)
against the LORD
<03068>_,
and turn
<07725> (8800)
this day
<03117>
from following
<0310>
the LORD
<03068>_,
to build
<01129> (8800)
an altar
<04196>
for burnt offerings
<05930>_,
for meat offerings
<04503>_,
or for sacrifices
<02077>_,
beside the altar
<04196>
of the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>
that [is] before
<06440>
his tabernacle
<04908>_.
And when Phinehas
<06372>
the priest
<03548>_,
and the princes
<05387>
of the congregation
<05712>
and heads
<07218>
of the thousands
<0505>
of Israel
<03478>
which [were] with him, heard
<08085> (8799)
the words
<01697>
that the children
<01121>
of Reuben
<07205>
and the children
<01121>
of Gad
<01410>
and the children
<01121>
of Manasseh
<04519>
spake
<01696> (8765)_,
it pleased
<03190> (8799) <05869>
them. {pleased...: Heb. was good in their eyes}
And Phinehas
<06372>
the son
<01121>
of Eleazar
<0499>
the priest
<03548>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the children
<01121>
of Reuben
<07205>_,
and to the children
<01121>
of Gad
<01410>_,
and to the children
<01121>
of Manasseh
<04519>_,
This day
<03117>
we perceive
<03045> (8804)
that the LORD
<03068>
[is] among
<08432>
us, because ye have not committed
<04603> (8804)
this trespass
<04604>
against the LORD
<03068>_:
now
<0227>
ye have delivered
<05337> (8689)
the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
out of the hand
<03027>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{now: Heb. then}
And Phinehas
<06372>
the son
<01121>
of Eleazar
<0499>
the priest
<03548>_,
and the princes
<05387>_,
returned
<07725> (8799)
from the children
<01121>
of Reuben
<07205>_,
and from the children
<01121>
of Gad
<01410>_,
out of the land
<0776>
of Gilead
<01568>_,
unto the land
<0776>
of Canaan
<03667>_,
to the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and brought
<07725> (0)
them word
<01697>
again
<07725> (8686)_.
And the thing
<01697>
pleased
<03190> (8799) <05869>
the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_;
and the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
blessed
<01288> (8762)
God
<0430>_,
and did not intend
<0559> (8804)
to go up
<05927> (8800)
against them in battle
<06635>_,
to destroy
<07843> (8763)
the land
<0776>
wherein the children
<01121>
of Reuben
<07205>
and Gad
<01410>
dwelt
<03427> (8802)_.
And the children
<01121>
of Reuben
<07205>
and the children
<01121>
of Gad
<01410>
called
<07121> (8799)
the altar
<04196>
[Ed]: for it [shall be] a witness
<05707>
between us that the LORD
<03068>
[is] God
<0430>_.
{Ed: that is, A witness}
