1:1 And after the death of Moses, ຜູ້ຮັບໃຊ້ຂອງພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, it happened that the Lord spoke to Joshua, the son of Nun, the minister of Moses, ແລະ​ພຣະ​ອົງ​ໄດ້​ກ່າວ​ກັບ​ເຂົາ:
1:2 “Moses, ລັດຖະກອນຂອງຂ້າພະເຈົ້າ, has died. ລຸກ​ຂື້ນ, and cross this Jordan, you and all the people with you, into the land which I will give to the sons of Israel.
1:3 I will deliver to you every place that the step of your foot will tread upon, just as I said to Moses.
1:4 From the desert and from Lebanon, even to the great river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, as far as the great sea opposite the setting of the sun, shall be your border.
1:5 No one will be able to resist you during all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so will I be with you. I will not leave you, nor will I forsake you.
1:6 Be strengthened and be steadfast. For you shall divide by lot, to this people, the land about which I swore to their fathers that I would deliver it to them.
1:7 ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, be strengthened and be very steadfast, so that you may observe and accomplish the entire law, which Moses, ລັດຖະກອນຂອງຂ້າພະເຈົ້າ, instructed to you. You may not turn aside from it to the right, nor to the left. So may you understand all that you should do.
1:8 The book of this law shall not depart from your mouth. ແທນ​ທີ່​ຈະ​ເປັນ, you shall meditate upon it, ວັນ​ແລະ​ໃນ​ຕອນ​ກາງ​ຄືນ, so that you may observe and do all the things that are written in it. Then you shall direct your way and understand it.
1:9 ຈົ່ງ​ເບິ່ງ, I am instructing you. Be strengthened, and be steadfast. Do not dread, and do not fear. For the Lord your God is with you in all things, wherever you may go.”
1:10 And Joshua instructed the leaders of the people, ເວົ້າ: “Cross through the midst of the camp, and command the people, ແລະ​ເວົ້າ​ວ່າ:
1:11 ‘Prepare your food supplies. For after the third day, you shall cross the Jordan, and you shall enter so as to possess the land, which the Lord your God will give to you.’ ”
1:12 ເຊັ່ນ​ດຽວ​ກັນ​ນັ້ນ, he said to the Reubenites and to the Gadites, and to the one half tribe of Manasseh:
1:13 “Remember the words, which Moses, ຜູ້ຮັບໃຊ້ຂອງພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, instructed to you, ເວົ້າ: ‘The Lord your God has given you rest, and has given you all the land.’
1:14 Your wives and sons, as well as the cattle, shall remain in the land which Moses delivered to you beyond the Jordan. ແຕ່​ສໍາ​ລັບ​ທ່ານ, pass over with weapons, before your brothers, all you who are strong of hand, and fight on their behalf,
1:15 until the Lord gives rest to your brothers, just as he has given to you, and until they also possess the land, which the Lord your God will give to them. And so shall you be returned to the land of your possession. And you shall live in the land, which Moses, ຜູ້ຮັບໃຊ້ຂອງພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, gave to you beyond the Jordan, opposite the rising of the sun.”
1:16 And they responded to Joshua, ແລະ​ພວກ​ເຂົາ​ເຈົ້າ​ເວົ້າ​ວ່າ: “All that you have instructed to us, we shall do. And wherever you will send us, we shall go.
1:17 Just as we obeyed Moses in all things, so shall we obey you also. But may the Lord your God be with you, just as he was with Moses.
1:18 Whoever will contradict your mouth, and whoever will not obey all of your words, which you will instruct to him, let him die. But may you be strengthened, and may you act manfully.”

2:1 And so Joshua, the son of Nun, sent two men from Shittim to explore in secret. ແລະ​ພຣະ​ອົງ​ໄດ້​ກ່າວ​ກັບ​ພວກ​ເຂົາ, “Go and consider the land and the city of Jericho.” And while traveling, they entered into the house of a harlot woman named Rahab, and they rested with her.
2:2 And it was reported to the king of Jericho, and it was said: "ຈົ່ງ​ເບິ່ງ, men have entered to this place in the night, from the sons of Israel, so that they might explore the land.”
2:3 And the king of Jericho sent to Rahab, ເວົ້າ: “Bring out the men who came to you, and who entered into your house. For certainly they are spies, and they have arrived to consider the entire land.”
2:4 And the woman, taking the men, hid them. And she said: “I admit that they came to me, but I did not know where they were from.
2:5 And when the gate was closed, they went out together in the darkness. I do not know where they have gone. Pursue them quickly, and you will overtake them.”
2:6 But she caused the men to ascend to the roof of her house, and she covered them with the stalks of flax that were there.
2:7 But those who had been sent pursued after them along the way that leads to the ford of the Jordan. And as soon as they went out, the gate was closed.
2:8 Those who were hiding had not yet fallen asleep, ແລະ​ຈົ່ງ​ເບິ່ງ, the woman went up to them, ແລະ​ນາງ​ໄດ້​ກ່າວ​ວ່າ:
2:9 “I know that the Lord has given this land to you. For the terror of you has fallen upon us, and all the inhabitants of the land have languished.
2:10 We have heard that the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea upon your arrival, when you were departing from Egypt, and we heard of the things that you did to the two kings of the Amorites, who were beyond the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you put to death.
2:11 And upon hearing these things, we were very afraid, and our heart languished. Neither did there remain in us any spirit at your arrival. For the Lord your God is the very God in heaven above and on earth below.
2:12 ໃນ​ປັດ​ຈຸ​ບັນ, ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ​ຈຶ່ງ, swear to me by the Lord that in the same way that I have acted with mercy toward you, so also shall you act toward the house of my father. And may you give me a true sign
2:13 that you will save my father and mother, my brothers and sisters, and all that is theirs, and that you may rescue our souls from death.”
2:14 They responded to her: “May our lives be yours unto death, if only you do not betray us. And when the Lord will have delivered the land to us, we will act toward you with mercy and truth.”
2:15 ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, she sent them down from a window with a rope. For her house was joined to the wall.
2:16 And she said to them: “Climb up to the mountains; otherwise, they may meet you as they are returning. And lay hidden there for three days, until they return. And then you will go on your way.”
2:17 ແລະພວກເຂົາໄດ້ກ່າວກັບນາງ: “We shall be innocent of this oath, to which you have sworn us,
2:18 ຖ້າ​ຫາກ​ວ່າ, when we enter into the land, this scarlet cord has been placed as a sign, and you have tied it at the window by which you let us down. ແລະ​ດັ່ງ​ນັ້ນ, gather your father, ແລະ​ແມ່, ແລະ​ອ້າຍ​ນ້ອງ, and all your family into your house.
2:19 Whoever will have exited from the door of your house, his blood will be on his own head, and we will be uninvolved. But the blood of all who will be with you in the house shall fall back upon our own head, if anyone touches them.
2:20 But if you will have betrayed us, so that you spread this word in their midst, we will be free from this oath, to which you have sworn us.”
2:21 ແລະ​ນາງ​ໄດ້​ຕອບ​ສະ​ຫນອງ, “Just as you have spoken, so let it be done.” And sending them to travel on, she hung the scarlet cord at the window.
2:22 ແລະ​ຢ່າງ​ແທ້​ຈິງ, walking on, they arrived at the mountains, and they stayed there for three days, until those who had been pursuing them returned. For having sought them along the entire way, they did not find them.
2:23 And when they returned and entered the city, the explorers descended from the mountain. And crossing the Jordan, they went to Joshua, the son of Nun, and they reported to him all that had happened to them.
2:24 ແລະ​ພວກ​ເຂົາ​ເຈົ້າ​ເວົ້າ​ວ່າ, “The Lord has delivered this entire land into our hands, and all its inhabitants have been struck down by fear.”

3:1 ແລະ​ດັ່ງ​ນັ້ນ, Joshua arose in the night, and he moved the camp. And they departed from Shittim, and they went to the Jordan: ລາວ, and all the sons of Israel, and they remained there for three days.
3:2 After these things unfolded, announcers passed through the midst of the camp,
3:3 and they began to proclaim: “When you will see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the priests of the stock of Levi carrying it, you also shall rise up and follow those who are going before you.
3:4 And let there be, between you and the ark, the space of two thousand cubits, so that you may be able to see it from far away, and to know along which way you should advance. For you have not walked this way before. And be careful that you do not approach the ark.”
3:5 And Joshua said to the people: “Be sanctified. For tomorrow the Lord will accomplish miracles among you.”
3:6 And he said to the priests: “Take up the ark of the covenant, and go before the people.” And they fulfilled the orders, and they took it and walked before them.
3:7 ແລະພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າກ່າວກັບໂຢຊວຍ: “Today I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, so that they may know that, just as I was with Moses, so also am I with you.
3:8 Now instruct the priests, who are carrying the ark of the covenant, and say to them, ‘When you will have entered into a part of the water of the Jordan, stand still in it.’ ”
3:9 And Joshua said to the sons of Israel, “Approach to here, and listen to the word of the Lord your God.”
3:10 ແລະ​ອີກ​ເທື່ອ​ຫນຶ່ງ, ເຂົາ​ເວົ້າ​ວ່າ: “By this shall you know that the Lord, the living God, ແມ່ນ​ຢູ່​ໃນ​ທ່າມ​ກາງ​ຂອງ​ທ່ານ, and that he shall scatter in your sight, the Canaanite and the Hittite, the Hivite and the Perizzite, likewise the Girgashite, ແລະເສດສັດທາໄດ້, and the Amorite.
3:11 ຈົ່ງ​ເບິ່ງ, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth shall go before you through the Jordan.
3:12 Prepare twelve men from the tribes of Israel, one from each tribe.
3:13 And when the priests who are carrying the ark of the Lord, the God of the entire earth, will have placed the steps of their feet in the waters of the Jordan, the waters that are lower will run down and pass away, and those that are approaching above will stand together in a mass.”
3:14 And the people departed from their tents, so that they might cross the Jordan. And the priests who were carrying the ark of the covenant were advancing before them.
3:15 And as soon as they entered into the Jordan, and their feet were dipped in a portion of the water, (now the Jordan, since it was the time of the harvest, had filled the banks of its channel,)
3:16 the descending waters stood still in one place, ແລະ, swelling up like a mountain, they were seen from far away, from the city that is called Adam, even as far as the place of Zarethan. But those that were lower ran down into the Sea of the Wilderness, (which is now called the Dead Sea,) until they entirely passed away.
3:17 Then the people advanced opposite Jericho. And the priests who were carrying the ark of the covenant of the Lord were standing, fully-dressed, upon dry soil in the midst of the Jordan, and all the people passed over, through the channel that was dried up.

4:1 ແລະໃນເວລາທີ່ພວກເຂົາເຈົ້າໄດ້ຂ້າມ, the Lord said to Joshua:
4:2 “Choose twelve men, one from each tribe,
4:3 and instruct them so that they may take from the midst of the channel of the Jordan, where the feet of the priests stood still, twelve very hard stones, which you shall station in the place of the camp, where you will pitch your tents this night.”
4:4 And Joshua called twelve men, whom he had chosen from the sons of Israel, one from each tribe,
4:5 ແລະ​ພຣະ​ອົງ​ໄດ້​ກ່າວ​ກັບ​ພວກ​ເຂົາ: “Go before the ark of the Lord your God into the middle of the Jordan, and let each one carry from there one stone on your shoulders, according to the number of the sons of Israel,
4:6 so that it may be a sign among you. And when your sons will ask you, tomorrow, ເວົ້າ, ‘What do these stones mean to you?'
4:7 you shall respond to them: ‘The waters of the Jordan failed before the ark of the covenant of the Lord, when the ark crossed over it. ສໍາ​ລັບ​ເຫດ​ຜົນ​ນີ້, these stones were placed as a monument for the sons of Israel, even forever.’ ”
4:8 ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, the sons of Israel did as Joshua instructed them, carrying twelve stones from the midst of the channel of the Jordan, just as the Lord had ordered him, according to the number of the sons of Israel, as far as the place where they made camp, and there they stationed them.
4:9 ເຊັ່ນ​ດຽວ​ກັນ, Joshua positioned another twelve stones in the middle of the channel of the Jordan, where the priests stood who were carrying the ark of the covenant; and they are there, ເຖິງແມ່ນວ່າເຖິງປັດຈຸບັນ.
4:10 Now the priests who were carrying the ark stood in the midst of the Jordan, until everything was accomplished which the Lord had instructed Joshua to speak to the people and which Moses had said to him. And the people hurried, and they passed over.
4:11 And when they had all crossed, the ark of the Lord also crossed, and the priests advanced before the people.
4:12 ເຊັ່ນ​ດຽວ​ກັນ​ນັ້ນ, the sons of Reuben, and of Gad, and of the one half tribe of Manasseh advanced with weapons before the sons of Israel, just as Moses had instructed them.
4:13 And forty thousand fighters, by companies and divisions, advanced through the plains and fields of the city of Jericho.
4:14 ໃນ​ວັນ​ນັ້ນ, the Lord magnified Joshua in the sight of all Israel, so that they would fear him, just as they had feared Moses while he lived.
4:15 ແລະ​ພຣະ​ອົງ​ໄດ້​ກ່າວ​ກັບ​ພຣະ​ອົງ,
4:16 “Command the priests who are carrying the ark of the covenant to ascend from the Jordan.”
4:17 And he commanded them, ເວົ້າ, “Ascend from the Jordan.”
4:18 And when those who were carrying the ark of the covenant of the Lord had ascended, and they began to step on dry soil, the waters returned to their channel, and they flowed as they usually did before.
4:19 Now the people ascended from the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month, and they encamped at Gilgal, opposite the eastern portion of the city of Jericho.
4:20 ເຊັ່ນ​ດຽວ​ກັນ​ນັ້ນ, the twelve stones that they had taken up from the channel of the Jordan, Joshua stationed at Gilgal.
4:21 And he said to the sons of Israel: “When your sons will question their fathers, tomorrow, and they will say to them, ‘What do these stones mean to you?'
4:22 you shall teach them, and you shall say: ‘Israel passed over this Jordan, through the dry channel.’
4:23 For the Lord your God dried up its waters in your sight, until you crossed over,
4:24 just as he had done before, at the Red Sea, which he dried up until we crossed over.
4:25 So may all the peoples of the earth learn of the very powerful hand of the Lord. So may you also fear the Lord your God for all time.”

5:1 ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, after all the kings of the Amorites, who were living across the Jordan toward the western region, and all the kings of Canaan, who possessed the places beside the great sea, had heard that the Lord had dried up the waters of the Jordan before the sons of Israel, until they crossed over it, their heart was broken, and there remained in them no spirit, out of fear at the entrance of the sons of Israel.
5:2 So at that time, the Lord said to Joshua: “Make for yourself knives of stone, and circumcise the sons of Israel a second time.”
5:3 He did what the Lord had commanded, and he circumcised the sons of Israel at the hill of the foreskins.
5:4 Now this is the reason for the second circumcision: All the people who departed from Egypt of the male gender, all the men fit for war, died in the desert during the very long wandering way;
5:5 all these had been circumcised. But the people who were born in the desert,
5:6 throughout the forty years of the journey in the very broad wilderness, were uncircumcised, until the ones who had not listened to the voice of the Lord were consumed. For he had sworn to them before, that he would not reveal to them the land flowing with milk and honey.
5:7 The sons of these ones succeeded to the place of their fathers, and they were circumcised by Joshua. For they were uncircumcised, just as they had been born, and no one had circumcised them along the way.
5:8 ຫຼັງ​ຈາກ​ນັ້ນ​,, after they were all circumcised, they remained in the same place of the camp until they were healed.

5:13 And when Joshua was in the field of the city of Jericho, he lifted up his eyes, and he saw a man standing opposite him, holding a drawn sword. And he went to him and said, “Are you one of ours, or one of our adversaries?"
5:14 And he responded: “Not at all. ແທນ​ທີ່​ຈະ​ເປັນ, I am a prince of the host of the Lord, and now I have arrived.”
5:15 Joshua fell prone on the ground. And reverencing, ເຂົາ​ເວົ້າ​ວ່າ, “What does my lord say to his servant?"
5:16 ລາວ​ເວົ້າ​ວ່າ: “Remove your shoes from your feet. For the place on which you stand is holy.” And Joshua did just as he had been commanded.

6:1 Now Jericho was closed as well as fortified, out of fear of the sons of Israel, and no one dared to depart or to enter.
6:2 ແລະພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າກ່າວກັບໂຢຊວຍ: "ຈົ່ງ​ເບິ່ງ, I have given Jericho into your hand, with its king and all the strong men.
6:3 Have all the warriors circle the city once each day; you shall do so for six days.
6:4 ຫຼັງ​ຈາກ​ນັ້ນ​,, on the seventh day, the priests shall take the seven trumpets, which are used on the jubilee, and they shall precede the ark of the covenant. And you shall circle the city seven times, and the priests shall sound the trumpets.
6:5 And when the voice of the trumpet sounds longer and with interruptions, and it increases in your ears, then all the people shall cry out together with a very great shout, and the walls of the city shall fall to the foundation, and they shall enter it, each from a place opposite where they are standing.”
6:6 Then Joshua, the son of Nun, called the priests, ແລະ​ພຣະ​ອົງ​ໄດ້​ກ່າວ​ກັບ​ພວກ​ເຂົາ, “Take the ark of the covenant, and let seven other priests take the seven trumpets of the jubilee, and advance before the ark of the Lord.”
6:7 He also said to the people, "ໄປ, and circle the city, armed, preceding the ark of the Lord.”
6:8 And when Joshua had finished his words, and the seven priests sounded the seven trumpets before the ark of the covenant of the Lord,
6:9 and all the armed soldiers went ahead, the remainder of the common people followed the ark, and the sound of the trumpets grew louder everywhere.
6:10 But Joshua had instructed the people, ເວົ້າ, “You shall not cry out, nor shall your voice be heard, and no word at all shall proceed from your mouth, until the day arrives on which I will say to you, ‘Cry out, and shout.’ ”
6:11 ດັ່ງ​ນັ້ນ, the ark of the Lord circled the city once each day, and returning to the camp, it remained there.
6:12 ແລະ​ດັ່ງ​ນັ້ນ, with Joshua, arising in the night, the priests took the ark of the Lord,
6:13 and seven of them took the seven trumpets, which are used in the jubilee, and they preceded the ark of the Lord, walking and sounding the trumpets. And the armed men went before them, and the remainder of the common people followed the ark, and they were blaring the trumpets.
6:14 And they circled the city on the second day, ເມື່ອ, and they returned to the camp. They did so for six days.
6:15 ຫຼັງ​ຈາກ​ນັ້ນ​,, on the seventh day, rising at first light, they circled the city, just as had been ordered, seven times.
6:16 And at the seventh circling, when the priests sounded the trumpets, Joshua said to all of Israel: “Shout! For the Lord has delivered the city to you.
6:17 And let this city be anathema, with all the things that are within it, before the Lord. May only Rahab the harlot live, with all who are with her in the house. For she hid the messengers whom we sent.
6:18 But you must be careful that you do not touch any of those things, as you have been instructed, for then you would be guilty of transgression, and all the camp of Israel would be under sin and would be troubled.
6:19 But whatever gold and silver there will be, and vessels of brass or of iron, let these be consecrated to the Lord and be stored in his treasuries.”
6:20 ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, with all the people shouting, and the trumpets blaring, after the voice and the sound increased in the ears of the multitude, the walls promptly fell to ruin. And each one climbed up at the place which was opposite where he was. And they seized the city.
6:21 And they put to death all who were in it, from man even to woman, from infant even to elder. ເຊັ່ນ​ດຽວ​ກັນ​ນັ້ນ, the oxen and sheep and donkeys, they struck down with the edge of the sword.
6:22 But Joshua said to the two men who had been sent to explore, “Enter the house of the harlot woman, and bring her out, and all the things that are hers, just as you assured her by oath.”
6:23 And the youths entered, and they led out Rahab, and her parents, also her brothers, and all her goods and kindred, and they caused them to dwell outside the camp.
6:24 Then they set fire to the city and all the things that were within it, except the gold and silver, and the vessels of brass or of iron, which they consecrated into the treasury of the Lord.
6:25 ແຕ່​ຢ່າງ​ແທ້​ຈິງ, Joshua caused Rahab the harlot, and her father’s household, and all she had, to survive. And they lived in the midst of Israel, ເຖິງແມ່ນວ່າເຖິງປັດຈຸບັນ. For she hid the messengers, whom he had sent to explore Jericho. ໃນເວລາທີ່, Joshua made an invocation, ເວົ້າ:
6:26 “Cursed before the Lord is the man who will raise up and rebuild the city of Jericho! With his firstborn, may he lay its foundation, and with the last of his children, may he set up its gates.”
6:27 And so the Lord was with Joshua, and his name was made known throughout all the land.

7:1 But the sons of Israel transgressed the commandment, and they usurped what was anathema. For Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, from the tribe of Judah, took something from what was anathema. And the Lord became angry against the sons of Israel.

7:5 and were struck down by the men of the city of Ai. And thirty-six men of them fell. And the adversaries pursued them from the gate, even as far as Shebarim. And they felled them as they were fleeing downward. And the heart of the people was struck with fear, and it melted like water.

And you shall say to them: ‘Be sanctified tomorrow. ສໍາ​ລັບ​ການ​ດັ່ງ​ນັ້ນ​ຈຶ່ງ​ເວົ້າ​ວ່າ​ພຣະ​ຜູ້​ເປັນ​ເຈົ້າ, ພຣະ​ເຈົ້າ​ຂອງ​ອິດ​ສະ​ຣາ​ເອນ: That which is anathema is in your midst, ອິດ​ສະ​ຣາ​ເອນ! You are not able to stand before your enemies, until he who has been contaminated by this wickedness is taken away from you.’
7:14 And you shall draw near in the morning, each one by your tribes. And whichever tribe will be found by lot shall come forward by its families, and the families by houses, and the house by the men.
7:15 And whoever he may be that will be found guilty of this deed, he shall be burnt with fire with all his substance. For he transgressed the covenant of the Lord, and he committed a wicked act in Israel.”
7:16 And so Joshua, rising in the morning, brought forth Israel by their tribes, and the tribe of Judah was found.
7:17 And when its families had been presented, the family of Zerah was found. ເຊັ່ນ​ດຽວ​ກັນ​ນັ້ນ, bringing that one forward by the houses, he discovered Zabdi.
7:18 And dividing his house by each man, he found Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, from the tribe of Judah.
7:19 And Joshua said to Achan: "ລູກ​ຊາຍ​ຂອງ​ຂ້ອຍ, give glory to the Lord, ພຣະ​ເຈົ້າ​ຂອງ​ອິດ​ສະ​ຣາ​ເອນ, and confess, and reveal to me what you have done. You may not conceal it.”
7:20 And Achan responded to Joshua, ແລະ​ພຣະ​ອົງ​ໄດ້​ກ່າວ​ກັບ​ເຂົາ: "ແທ້​ຈິງ, I have sinned against the Lord, ພຣະ​ເຈົ້າ​ຂອງ​ອິດ​ສະ​ຣາ​ເອນ, and I have done one thing and another.
7:21 For I saw among the spoils a very fine scarlet cloak, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a gold bar of fifty shekels. And coveting these, I took and hid them in the ground near the middle of my tent, and I covered the silver with the soil that I had dug.”
7:22 ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, Joshua sent ministers, ຜູ້​ທີ່, running to his tent, discovered everything hidden in the same place, together with the silver.
7:23 And taking these from the tent, they brought them to Joshua, and to all the sons of Israel, and they cast them down before the Lord.
7:24 And so Joshua took Achan, the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the cloak, and the gold bar, also his sons and daughters, the oxen and donkeys and sheep, and even the tent and all his goods, (and all of Israel went with him,) and he brought these to the valley of Achor.
7:25 ມີ, Joshua said: “Because you have troubled us, the Lord troubles you, on this day.” And all of Israel stoned him. And all the things that were his were consumed by fire.
7:26 And they gathered upon him a great pile of stones, which remains even to the present day. And the fury of the Lord was averted from them. And the name of that place was called the Valley of Achor, ເຖິງ​ແມ່ນ​ວ່າ​ມື້​ນີ້.

8:1 Then the Lord said to Joshua: “You should not fear, and you should not dread. Take with you the entire multitude of fighters, ແລະລຸກຂຶ້ນສູ້, ascend to the town of Ai. ຈົ່ງ​ເບິ່ງ, I have delivered into your hand its king and people, and the city and the land.
8:2 And you shall do to the city of Ai, and to its king, just as you did to Jericho, and to its king. ແຕ່​ຢ່າງ​ແທ້​ຈິງ, the spoils, and all the living things, you shall plunder for yourselves. Set an ambush against the city behind it.”
8:3 And Joshua rose up, and the entire army of warriors with him, so that they might ascend against Ai. And he sent thirty thousand elect strong men in the night.
8:4 ແລະທ່ານໄດ້ແນະນໍາໃຫ້ເຂົາເຈົ້າ, ເວົ້າ: “Set an ambush behind the city. You shall withdraw not far away, and let everyone be prepared.
8:5 But I and the remainder of the multitude that is with me will approach from the opposite side of the city. And when they come out against us, we will flee and turn our backs, just as we did before,
8:6 until, pursuing us, they are drawn away from the city. For they will think that we are fleeing as before.
8:7 ຫຼັງ​ຈາກ​ນັ້ນ​,, while we are fleeing and they are pursuing, you shall rise up from the ambush, and you shall lay waste to the city. And the Lord your God will deliver it into your hands.
8:8 And when you have seized it, set it on fire. And you shall do all that I have ordered.”
8:9 And he sent them away, and they traveled to the place of the ambush, and they settled between Bethel and Ai, toward the western region of the city of Ai. But Joshua remained for that night in the midst of the people.
8:10 And rising at first light, he reviewed his troops, and he went up, with the elders at the front of the army, surrounded by an auxiliary of fighters.
8:11 And when they had arrived, and had ascended from the opposite side of the city, they stood toward the northern region of the city. And there was a valley in the middle, between them and the city.
8:12 Now he had chosen five thousand men, and he had positioned them in ambush between Bethel and Ai, at the western part of the same city.
8:13 ແຕ່​ຢ່າງ​ແທ້​ຈິງ, all the remainder of the army was arranged in a line to the north, so that the very end of that multitude reached to the western region of the city. Then Joshua went out that night, and he stood in the middle of the valley.
8:14 And when the king of Ai had seen this, he hurried in the morning, and he went out with the entire army of the city. And he arranged them in a line opposite the desert, not knowing that an ambush lay hidden behind his back.
8:15 ແຕ່​ຢ່າງ​ແທ້​ຈິງ, ໂຢ​ຊວຍ, and all of Israel, withdrew from the place, pretending to be afraid, and fleeing along the way of the wilderness.
8:16 And they pursued them, shouting together and encouraging one another. And when they had withdrawn from the city,
8:17 and indeed not one remained in the city of Ai and of Bethel who did not pursue after Israel, (leaving the towns open after they had rushed out,)
8:18 the Lord said to Joshua: “Lift up the shield that is in your hand, toward the city of Ai. For I will deliver it to you.”
8:19 And when he had lifted up the shield toward the city, the ambush, which lay hidden, rose up quickly. And advancing to the city, they seized it, and set it on fire.
8:20 Now the men of the city who were pursuing Joshua, looking back and seeing the smoke of the city rising up even to heaven, were no longer able to flee in one direction or another, especially since those who had pretended to flee, and who were heading toward the wilderness, had turned back very strongly against those who were pursuing them.
8:21 And Joshua, and all of Israel, seeing that the city had been captured, and that the smoke of the city was ascending, returned and struck down the men of Ai.
8:22 ແລະຫຼັງຈາກນັ້ນ, those who had seized and set the city on fire, departing from the city toward their own men, began to strike the enemies in the middle. ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, since the adversaries were cut off from both sides, none of so great a multitude was saved.
8:23 ນອກຈາກນີ້, they apprehended the king of the city of Ai, alive, and they brought him before Joshua.
8:24 ແລະ​ດັ່ງ​ນັ້ນ, after all were slain who had pursued Israel fleeing toward the wilderness, and after they fell by the sword in the same place, the sons of Israel returned and struck the city.
8:25 Now there were twelve thousand persons who had fallen on the same day, from man even to woman, the entire city of Ai.
8:26 Truly Joshua did not draw back his hand, which he had stretched out on high, keeping hold of the shield until all the inhabitants of Ai were put to death.
8:27 Then the sons of Israel divided among themselves the cattle and the plunder of the city, just as the Lord had instructed Joshua.
8:28 And he set fire to the city, and he caused it to be a perpetual tomb.
8:29 ນອກຈາກນີ້, he suspended the king on a gallows, until evening and the setting of the sun. And Joshua instructed, and they took down his dead body from the hanging tree. And they cast it at the very entrance of the city, gathering a great pile of stones upon it, which remains even to the present day.
8:30 Then Joshua built an altar to the Lord, ພຣະ​ເຈົ້າ​ຂອງ​ອິດ​ສະ​ຣາ​ເອນ, on Mount Ebal,
8:31 just as Moses, ຜູ້ຮັບໃຊ້ຂອງພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, had instructed to the sons of Israel, and this was written in the book of the law of Moses: ຢ່າງແທ້ຈິງ, an altar of uncut stones, which iron has not touched. And he offered holocausts upon it to the Lord, and he immolated victims as peace-offerings.
8:32 And he wrote on the stones, the Deuteronomy of the law of Moses, which he had set in order before the sons of Israel.
8:33 Then all the people, and those greater by birth, and the commanders and judges were standing on both sides of the ark, in the sight of the priests who were carrying the ark of the covenant of the Lord, with both the new arrival and the native born, one half part of them beside Mount Gerizim, and one half beside Mount Ebal, just as Moses, ຜູ້ຮັບໃຊ້ຂອງພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, had instructed. ແລະຄັ້ງທໍາອິດ, ແນ່​ນອນ​ວ່າ, he blessed the people of Israel.
8:34 ຫຼັງ​ຈາກ​ທີ່​ນີ້, he read all the words of the blessing and the cursing, and all the things that were written in the book of the law.
8:35 He left nothing untouched out of those things that Moses had ordered, and he repeated everything before the entire multitude of Israel, with the women and the little ones, and the new arrivals who were staying among them.

9:1 And when these things were heard, all the kings across the Jordan, who lived among the mountains and plains, along the coastline and shores of the great sea, also those who were living near Lebanon, the Hittite, and the Amorite, the Canaanite, the Perizzite, ແລະຄົນຮີໄວ, ແລະເສດສັດທາໄດ້,
9:2 gathered themselves together, so that they might fight against Joshua and Israel, with one mind and with the same resolve.
9:3 But those who were living in Gibeon, hearing all that Joshua had done to Jericho and Ai,
9:4 planning cleverly, took for themselves provisions, placing old sacks upon their donkeys, and wineskins that had torn and been sewed up,
9:5 and having very old shoes, which had been sewn with patches indicating their age, and being clothed in old garments, having also loaves, which they carried as food for the journey, which were hard and broken into pieces.
9:6 And they traveled to Joshua, who at that time was staying in the camp at Gilgal. ແລະພວກເຂົາໄດ້ກ່າວກັບເຂົາ, and to all of Israel with him, “We have come from a far away land, desiring to make peace with you.” And the sons of Israel responded to them, ແລະເວົ້າວ່າ,
9:7 “Perhaps instead, you live in the land which ought to be ours by lot, and we would be unable to form a pact with you.”
9:8 But they said to Joshua, “We are your servants.” And Joshua said to them: “But who are you? And where are you from?"
9:9 They responded: “Your servants have arrived, from a very far away land, ໃນພຣະນາມຂອງພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, ພຣະ​ເຈົ້າ​ຂອງ​ທ່ານ. For we have heard about the fame of his power, all the things that he has done in Egypt,
9:10 and to the two kings of the Amorites, who were beyond the Jordan: ສິໂຫນະ, the king of Heshbon, ແລະ, the king of Bashan, who was at Ashtaroth.
9:11 And our elders, and all the inhabitants of our land, have said to us: ‘Take in hand provisions for the very long journey, and meet with them, ແລະ​ເວົ້າ​ວ່າ: We are your servants; form a pact with us.’
9:12 Lo, the loaves were taken up warm when we departed from our houses, so that we might come to you. Now they have become dry and broken, due to age.
9:13 These wineskins were new when we filled them, now they are torn and broken. The garments we are wearing, and the shoes we have on our feet, due to the great length of the distance, have become worn and are nearly consumed.”
9:14 And so they accepted this, because of their provisions, and they did not consult the mouth of the Lord.
9:15 And Joshua made peace with them, and entering into a pact, he promised that they would not be put to death. The leaders of the multitude also swore to them.
9:16 ຫຼັງ​ຈາກ​ນັ້ນ​,, three days after the pact was formed, they heard that they lived in the vicinity, and that they would soon be among them.
9:17 And so the sons of Israel moved the camp, and they arrived at their cities on the third day, those which are called: Gibeon, and Chephirah, and Beeroth, and Kiriath-jearim.
9:18 And they did not strike them, because the leaders of the multitude had sworn to them in the name of the Lord, ພຣະ​ເຈົ້າ​ຂອງ​ອິດ​ສະ​ຣາ​ເອນ. And so all of the common people murmured against the leaders.
9:19 And they responded to them: “We have sworn to them in the name of the Lord, ພຣະ​ເຈົ້າ​ຂອງ​ອິດ​ສະ​ຣາ​ເອນ, ແລະສໍາລັບເຫດຜົນວ່າ, we are not able to touch them.
9:20 But we shall do this to them: ແນ່ນອນວ່າ, let them be preserved so that they may live, lest the wrath of the Lord be stirred up against us, since we would have sworn falsely.
9:21 But though they live, let them serve the entire multitude by cutting wood and carrying water.” And while they were discussing these things,
9:22 Joshua called the Gibeonites, ແລະ​ພຣະ​ອົງ​ໄດ້​ກ່າວ​ກັບ​ພວກ​ເຂົາ: “Why would you be willing to deceive us by fraud, ເວົ້າ, ‘We live very far away from you,’ when you are in our midst?
9:23 ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, you shall be under a curse, and your stock shall not cease to be cutters of wood and carriers of water, into the house of my God.”
9:24 And they responded: “It was reported to us, ຜູ້​ຮັບ​ໃຊ້​ຂອງ​ທ່ານ, that the Lord your God had promised his servant Moses that he would give you the entire land, and that he would destroy all its inhabitants. ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, we were very afraid, and we made a provision for our lives, compelled by the dread of you, and we undertook this counsel.
9:25 And now we are in your hand. Act toward us as it seems good and right to you.”
9:26 ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, Joshua did just as he had said, and he freed them from the hand of the sons of Israel, so that they would not be killed.
9:27 And he decreed on that day, that they would be in the ministry of all the people and of the altar of the Lord, cutting wood and carrying water, even until this present time, in the place which the Lord had chosen.

10:1 When Adonizedek, ຄົນ​ຂອງ​ເຢ​ຣູ​ຊາ​ເລັມ, had heard these things, ໂດຍ​ສະ​ເພາະ, that Joshua had seized Ai, and had overthrown it, (for just as he had done to Jericho and its king, so did he do to Ai and its king,) and that the Gibeonites had fled over to Israel, and were now their confederates,
10:2 ວ່ານີ້ແມ່ນຢ້ານທີ່ສຸດ. For Gibeon was a great city, and was one of the royal cities, and was greater than the town of Ai, and all its warriors were very strong.
10:3 ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, Adonizedek, ຄົນ​ຂອງ​ເຢ​ຣູ​ຊາ​ເລັມ, sent to Hoham, the king of Hebron, and to Piram, the king of Jarmuth, and also to Japhia, the king of Lachish, and to Debir, the king of Eglon, ເວົ້າ:
10:4 “Ascend to me, and bring troops, so that we may fight against Gibeon. For it has fled over to Joshua and the sons of Israel.”
10:5 ແລະ​ດັ່ງ​ນັ້ນ, having assembled, the five kings of the Amorites, ຄົນ​ຂອງ​ເຢ​ຣູ​ຊາ​ເລັມ, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, the king of Eglon, together with their armies, went up and encamped around Gibeon, laying siege to it.
10:6 But the inhabitants of the city of Gibeon, when it was besieged, sent to Joshua, who was then staying in the camp at Gilgal. ແລະພວກເຂົາໄດ້ກ່າວກັບເຂົາ: “May you not draw back your hands from helping your servants. Come quickly, and free us, and bring troops. For all the kings of the Amorites, who live in the mountains, have gathered together against us.”
10:7 And Joshua ascended from Gilgal, and the entire army of warriors with him, very strong men.
10:8 ແລະພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າກ່າວກັບໂຢຊວຍ: “You should not fear them. For I have delivered them into your hands. None of them will be able to withstand you.”
10:9 And so Joshua, ascending from Gilgal throughout the night, rushed upon them suddenly.
10:10 And the Lord set them in disarray before the face of Israel. And he crushed them in a great defeat at Gibeon, and he pursued them along the way of the ascent to Beth-horon, ແລະພຣະອົງເຂົາເຈົ້າ struck ລົງ, even as far as Azekah and Makkedah.
10:11 And while they were fleeing from the sons of Israel, and were on the descent of Beth-horon, the Lord cast great stones from heaven upon them, as far as Azekah. And many more were killed by the hailstones, than were struck down by the swords of the sons of Israel.
10:12 Then Joshua spoke to the Lord, on the day that he handed over the Amorite in the sight of the sons of Israel, and he said before them: “O sun, you shall not move toward Gibeon! O moon, you shall not move toward the valley of Aijalon!"
10:13 And the sun and the moon stood still, until the people had avenged themselves of their enemies. Has this not been written in the book of the just? And so the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and it did not hurry to its rest for the space of one day.
10:14 Never before and never after was there so long a day, as when the Lord obeyed the voice of a man, and fought for Israel.
10:15 And Joshua returned, with all of Israel, into the camp of Gilgal.
10:16 For the five kings had fled, and had hidden themselves in a cave, near the city of Makkedah.
10:17 And it was reported to Joshua that the five kings had been found hidden in a cave, near the city of Makkedah.
10:18 And he instructed his companions and said: “Roll vast stones to the mouth of the cave, and station attentive men who will keep them closed.
10:19 ແຕ່​ສໍາ​ລັບ​ທ່ານ, do not stay here; ແທນທີ່ຈະເປັນ, pursue the enemies, and cut down the lattermost of those who are fleeing. You shall not permit those whom the Lord God has delivered into your hands to enter into the protection of their cities.”
10:20 ດັ່ງ​ນັ້ນ, the adversaries were struck down in a great defeat, and having been nearly consumed, even to utter annihilation, those who were able to escape from Israel entered into fortified cities.
10:21 And the entire army returned to Joshua at Makkedah, where they were then encamped, in good health and in their full numbers. And no one dared to move his tongue against the sons of Israel.
10:22 And Joshua instructed, ເວົ້າ, “Open the mouth of the cave, and bring forward to me the five kings, who are hidden within it.”
10:23 And the ministers did just as they had been ordered. And they led out to him the five kings from the cave: ຄົນ​ຂອງ​ເຢ​ຣູ​ຊາ​ເລັມ, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, the king of Eglon.
10:24 And when they had been led out to him, he called all the men of Israel, and he said to the leaders of the army who were with him, "ໄປ, and place your feet upon the necks of these kings.” And when they had gone and had tread their feet upon the necks of those who were thrown down,
10:25 he spoke to them again: "ບໍ່​ຕ້ອງ​ຢ້ານ, and do not dread. Be strengthened and be steadfast. For so will the Lord do to all your enemies, against whom you fight.”
10:26 And Joshua struck them down and killed them, and he suspended them on five gallows. And they hung there until evening.
10:27 ແລະໃນເວລາທີ່ແສງຕາເວັນໄດ້ກໍານົດໄວ້, he instructed his assistants that they should take them down from the gallows. And having been taken down, they cast them into the cave, where they had lain hidden, and they set vast stones at its mouth, which remain, even to the present.
10:28 Also on the same day, Joshua seized Makkedah, and he struck it with the edge of the sword, and he put to death its king and all its inhabitants. He did not leave in it even the smallest remains. And he did to the king of Makkedah, just as he had done to the king of Jericho.
10:29 Then he went on, with all of Israel, from Makkedah to Libnah, and he fought against it.
10:30 And the Lord delivered it, with its king, into the hands of Israel. And they struck the city with the edge of the sword, and all its inhabitants. They did not leave in it any remains. And they did to the king of Libnah, just as they had done to the king of Jericho.
10:31 From Libnah, with all of Israel, he went on to Lachish. And taking positions around it with his army, he besieged it.
10:32 And the Lord delivered Lachish into the hands of Israel, and he seized it on the following day, and he struck it with the edge of the sword, and every soul that was in it, just as he had done to Libnah.
10:33 ໃນເວລາທີ່, Horam, the king of Gezer, went up so that he might assist Lachish. And Joshua struck him with all his people, even unto utter annihilation.
10:34 And he went on from Lachish to Eglon, and he surrounded it.
10:35 And he also defeated it on the same day. And he struck all the souls that were in it with the edge of the sword, in accord with all that he had done to Lachish.
10:36 He also ascended, with all of Israel, from Eglon into Hebron, and he fought against it.
10:37 He seized it and struck it with the edge of the sword, likewise with its king, and all the towns of that region, and all the souls that were staying in it. He did not leave any remains in it. Just as he had done to Eglon, so also did he do to Hebron, consuming with the sword all that he found within it.
10:38 Returning from there to Debir,
10:39 he seized it and laid waste to it, likewise with its king. And all the surrounding towns, he struck with the edge of the sword. He did not leave in it any remains. Just as he had done to Hebron and Libnah, and to their kings, so did he do to Debir and to its king.
10:40 And so Joshua struck the entire land, the mountains, and the south, and the plains, and the descending slopes, with their kings. He did not leave in it any remains, but he put to death all that was able to breathe, just as the Lord, ພຣະ​ເຈົ້າ​ຂອງ​ອິດ​ສະ​ຣາ​ເອນ, had instructed him,
10:41 from Kadesh-barnea, as far as Gaza, with all the land of Goshen, as far as Gibeon.
10:42 And all their kings and their regions, he seized and destroyed with a single attack. ສໍາລັບພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, ພຣະ​ເຈົ້າ​ຂອງ​ອິດ​ສະ​ຣາ​ເອນ, fought on his behalf.

11:4 And they all went forth with their troops, a people exceedingly numerous, like the sand that is on the shore of the sea. And their horses and chariots were an immense multitude.
11:5 And all these kings assembled at the waters of Merom, so that they might fight against Israel.
11:6 ແລະພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າກ່າວກັບໂຢຊວຍ: “You should not fear them. For tomorrow, at this same hour, I will deliver all these to be wounded in the sight of Israel. You will hamstring their horses, and you will burn their chariots with fire.”
11:7 And Joshua, and the entire army with him, came against them suddenly, at the waters of Merom, and they rushed upon them.
11:8 And the Lord delivered them into the hands of Israel. And they struck them, and they pursued them as far as the great Sidon, and the waters of Misrephoth, and the field of Mizpeh, which is toward the eastern region. He struck them all, so that nothing was left of them to remain.
11:9 And he did just as the Lord had instructed him. He hamstrung their horses, and he burned their chariots with fire.
11:10 And turning back, he immediately seized Hazor. And he struck down its king with the sword. For Hazor, from antiquity, held the first position among all these kingdoms.
11:11 And he struck down all the souls that were staying there. He did not leave in it any remains, but he destroyed everything unto utter annihilation, and he destroyed the city itself with fire.
11:12 And he seized, struck, and destroyed all the surrounding cities and their kings, just as Moses, the servant of God, had instructed him.
11:13 And except for the cities that were on hills and in elevated places, the rest Israel burned. One only, highly-fortified Hazor, was consumed with fire.
11:14 And the sons of Israel divided among themselves all the plunder of these cities, ແລະການລ້ຽງສັດໄດ້, putting to death all persons.
11:15 Just as the Lord had instructed his servant Moses, so did Moses instruct Joshua, and he fulfilled everything. He did not omit even one word out of all the commandments, which the Lord had commanded Moses.
11:16 And so Joshua seized the entire land of the mountains, and of the south, and the land of Goshen, and the plains, and the western region, and the mountain of Israel, and its plains.
11:17 As for the part of the mountain that ascends to Seir, as far as Baalgad, along the plain of Lebanon under mount Hermon, all their kings he seized, struck down, and killed.
11:18 For a long time, Joshua fought against these kings.
11:19 There was not a city that delivered itself to the sons of Israel, except the Hivites who were living at Gibeon. For he seized it all in warfare.
11:20 For it was the sentence of the Lord that their hearts would be hardened, and that they would fight against Israel and fall, and that they did not deserve any clemency, and that they should perish, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
11:21 In that time, Joshua went and put to death the Anakim from the mountains, from Hebron and Debir and Anab, and from all the mountains of Judah and Israel. And he destroyed their cities.
11:22 He did not leave any from the stock of the Anakim in the land of the sons of Israel, except the cities of Gaza, and Gath, and Ashdod, which alone were left behind.
11:23 ດັ່ງ​ນັ້ນ, Joshua seized all the land, just as the Lord spoke to Moses, and he delivered it as a possession to the sons of Israel, according to their divisions and tribes. And the land rested from battles.

12:4 to the border of Og, the king of Bashan; from the remnant of the Rephaim, who lived in Ashtaroth, and at Edrei, and who had dominion on mount Hermon, and at Salecah, and into all of Bashan, even to its limits;
12:5 with Geshur and Maacati, and one half of Gilead, these were the borders of Sihon, the king of Heshbon.
12:6 ໂມເຊ, ຜູ້ຮັບໃຊ້ຂອງພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, and the sons of Israel struck them down. And Moses delivered their land into the possession of the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the one half tribe of Manasseh.
12:7 These are the kings of the land, whom Joshua and the sons of Israel struck down across the Jordan, toward the western region, from Baalgad in the field of Lebanon, as far as the mountain, part of which ascends to Seir. And Joshua delivered it as a possession to the tribes of Israel, to each one in their divisions,
12:8 both in the mountains and in the plains and fields. In the descending slopes, and in the wilderness, and in the south, there too was the Hittite and the Amorite, the Canaanite and the Perizzite, the Hivite and the Jebusite.

13:1 Joshua was old and advanced in age, and the Lord said to him: “You have grown old, and are aged, and a very wide land remains, which has not yet been divided by lot,
13:2 ໂດຍ​ສະ​ເພາະ, all of Galilee, Philistia, and all of Geshur;
13:3 from the muddy river, which irrigates Egypt, as far as the border of Ekron toward the north, the land of Canaan, which is divided among the rulers of Philistia: the Gazites, and the Ashdodites, the Ashkelonites, the Gathites, and the Ekronites;

13:6 all who live in the mountains from Lebanon, as far as the waters of Misrephoth, and all the Sidonians. I am the One who will wipe them out, before the face of the sons of Israel. ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, let their land become a part of the inheritance of Israel, just as I have instructed you.
13:7 ແລະ​ປັດ​ຈຸ​ບັນ, divide the land as a possession to the nine tribes, and to the one half tribe of Manasseh.”
13:8 With them, Reuben and Gad have possessed the land, which Moses, ຜູ້ຮັບໃຊ້ຂອງພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, delivered to them beyond the river Jordan, on the eastern side:
13:9 from Aroer, which is situated on the bank of the torrent Arnon and in the midst of the valley, and all the plains of Medeba, as far as Dibon;
13:10 and all the cities of Sihon, the king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon, even to the borders of the sons of Ammon;
13:11 and Gilead, as well as the borders of Geshur and Maacati, and all of mount Hermon, and all of Bashan, as far as Salecah;
13:12 the entire kingdom of Og in Bashan, who reigned at Ashtaroth and Edrei, (he was among the last of the Rephaim). And Moses struck and destroyed them.
13:13 And the sons of Israel were not willing to destroy Geshur and Maacati, and so they have lived in the midst of Israel, ເຖິງແມ່ນວ່າເຖິງປັດຈຸບັນ.
13:14 But to the tribe of Levi, he did not give a possession. ແທນ​ທີ່​ຈະ​ເປັນ, the sacrifices and victims of the Lord, ພຣະ​ເຈົ້າ​ຂອງ​ອິດ​ສະ​ຣາ​ເອນ, these are his inheritance, just as he spoke to him.
13:15 ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, Moses gave a possession to the tribe of the sons of Reuben, according to their families.
13:16 And their border was from Aroer, which is situated on the bank of the torrent Arnon, and in the midst of the valley of the same torrent, with all the flatlands that lead to Medeba;
13:17 and Heshbon, and all their villages, which are in the plains; also Dibon, and Bamothbaal, and the town of Baalmeon,
13:18 and Jahaz, and Kedemoth, and Mephaath,

13:22 And the sons of Israel killed Balaam, ລູກ​ຊາຍ​ຂອງ​ເບ​ໂອ, the seer, with the sword, along with the others who were slain.
13:23 And the river Jordan was made the border of the sons of Reuben; this is the possession of the Reubenites, by their families, in cities and villages.
13:24 And Moses gave to the tribe of Gad and his sons, by their families, a possession, of which this is the division:
13:25 the border of Jazer, and all the cities of Gilead, and one half part of the land of the sons of Ammon, as far as Aroer, which is opposite Rabbah;
13:26 and from Heshbon as far as Ramath, Mizpeh, and Betonim; and from Mahanaim as far as the borders of Debir;
13:27 also, in the valley Beth-haram and Beth-nimrah, and Succoth, and Zaphon, the remaining part of the kingdom of Sihon, the king of Heshbon; the limit of this also is the Jordan, as far as the furthest part of the sea of Chinnereth, beyond the Jordan on the eastern side.
13:28 This is the possession of the sons of Gad, by their families, in their cities and villages.
13:29 He also gave, to the one half tribe of Manasseh and to his sons, a possession according to their families,
13:30 the beginning of which is this: from Mahanaim, all of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Og, the king of Bashan, and all the villages of Jair, which are in Bashan, sixty towns;
13:31 and one half part of Gilead, and Ashtaroth, and Edrei, the cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan, to the sons of Machir, the son of Manasseh, to one half part of the sons of Machir, according to their families.
13:32 Moses divided this possession, in the plains of Moab, beyond the Jordan, opposite Jericho on the eastern side.
13:33 But to the tribe of Levi he did not give a possession. ສໍາລັບພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, ພຣະ​ເຈົ້າ​ຂອງ​ອິດ​ສະ​ຣາ​ເອນ, is himself their possession, just as he spoke to him.

14:1 This is what the sons of Israel possessed in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar, ປະໂລຫິດໄດ້, and Joshua, the son of Nun, and the leaders of the families, by the tribes of Israel, gave to them,
14:2 dividing all by lot, just as the Lord had instructed by the hand of Moses, to the nine tribes and to the one half tribe.
14:3 For to the two and one half tribes, Moses had given a possession beyond the Jordan, aside from the Levites, who received no land among their brothers.
14:4 For by succession, the sons of Joseph, in their place, were divided into two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim. But the Levites did not receive another portion of land, except cities in which to live, and their suburbs, so as to feed their beasts of burden and cattle.
14:5 Just as the Lord had commanded Moses, so the sons of Israel did, and they divided the land.
14:6 ແລະ​ດັ່ງ​ນັ້ນ, the sons of Judah approached Joshua at Gilgal. And Caleb, the son of Jephone, the Kenizzite, spoke to him: “You know what the Lord said to Moses, ຄົນຂອງພະເຈົ້າ, at Kadesh-barnea, about me and you.
14:7 I was forty years old when Moses, ຜູ້ຮັບໃຊ້ຂອງພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, sent me from Kadesh-barnea, so that I might consider the land. And I reported to him what seemed to me to be true.
14:8 But my brothers, who had ascended with me, broke the heart of the people. And I nevertheless followed the Lord my God.
14:9 And Moses swore, ໃນວັນນັ້ນ, ເວົ້າ: ‘The land that your foot has tread upon shall be your possession, and that of your sons, ພຣະນິລັນດອນ. For you have followed the Lord my God.’
14:10 ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, the Lord has granted life to me, just as he promised, ເຖິງແມ່ນວ່າເຖິງປັດຈຸບັນ. It has been forty-five years since the Lord spoke this word to Moses, when Israel was wandering through the wilderness. ໃນມື້ນີ້, I am eighty-five years old,
14:11 being just as strong as I was at that time, when I was sent to explore the land. The fortitude in me at that time continues even until today, as much to fight as to march.
14:12 ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, grant to me this mountain, which the Lord has promised in your hearing also, on which are the Anakim, and cities, great and fortified. Perhaps it may be that the Lord will be with me, and I will be able to destroy them, just as he promised to me.”
14:13 And Joshua blessed him, and he delivered Hebron to him as a possession.
14:14 ແລະຕັ້ງແ​​ຕ່ນັ້ນມາ, Hebron was for Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, the Kenizzite, ເຖິງແມ່ນວ່າເຖິງປັດຈຸບັນ. For he followed the Lord, ພຣະ​ເຈົ້າ​ຂອງ​ອິດ​ສະ​ຣາ​ເອນ.

15:1 ແລະ​ດັ່ງ​ນັ້ນ, the lot of the sons of Judah, by their families, was this: from the border of Edom, to the desert of Sin toward the south, and even to the furthest part of the southern region.
15:2 Its beginning was from the summit of the very salty sea, and from its bay, which looks toward the south.
15:3 And it extends toward the ascent of the Scorpion, and it passes on to Sinai. And it ascends into Kadesh-barnea, and it passes through to Hezron, ascending to Addar, and encompassing Karka.
15:4 And from there, it passes on to Azmon, and reaches to the torrent of Egypt. And its boundary shall be the great sea; this shall be the limit of the southern region.
15:5 ແຕ່​ຢ່າງ​ແທ້​ຈິງ, ໄປ​ສູ່​ພາກ​ຕາ​ເວັນ​ອອກ, the beginning shall be the very salty sea, even to the limit of the Jordan, and that which looks toward the north, from the bay of the sea, even to the same river Jordan.
15:6 And the border ascends into Beth-hoglah, and it crosses from the north into Beth-Arabah, ascending to the stone of Bohan, the son of Reuben.
15:7 And it reaches as far as the borders of Debara, from the Valley of Achor, to the north, looking toward Gilgal, which is opposite the Ascent of Adummim, on the southern part of the torrent. And it crosses the waters that are called the Fountain of the Sun. And its exit shall be at the Fountain of Rogel.
15:8 And it ascends by the steep valley of the son of Hinnom, from the side of the Jebusite, toward the south; this is Jerusalem. And from there, it raises itself to the top of the mountain, which is opposite Geennom to the west, at the top of the Valley of the Rephaim, to the north.
15:9 And it passes through, from the top of the mountain, even to the fountain of the Water of Nephtoah. And it continues on, as far as the villages of mount Ephron. And it inclines toward Baalah, which is Kiriath-jearim, ທີ່​ຢູ່, the City of Forests.
15:10 And it circles from Baalah, to the west, as far as mount Seir. And it passes by the side of mount Jearim, to the north, into Chesalon. And it descends into Beth-shemesh, and it passes through to Timnah.
15:11 And it continues on, toward the north, to a region beside Ekron. And it inclines toward Shikkeron, and it crosses to mount Baalah. And it extends into Jabneel, and the last part closes at the west with the great sea.
15:12 These are the borders of the sons of Judah, in their families, on all sides.
15:13 ແຕ່​ຢ່າງ​ແທ້​ຈິງ, to Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, he gave a portion in the midst of the sons of Judah, just as the Lord had instructed him: the City of Arba, the father of Anak, which is Hebron.
15:14 And Caleb destroyed from it the three sons of Anak, Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai, of the stock of Anak.
15:15 And ascending further from there, he came to the inhabitants of Debir, which before was called Kiriath-Sepher, ທີ່​ຢູ່, the City of Letters.
15:16 And Caleb said, “Whoever will have struck down Kiriath-Sepher, and will have seized it, I will give to him Achsah, my daughter, as wife.”
15:17 And Othniel, the son of Kenaz, the younger brother of Caleb, seized it. And he gave him Achsah, ລູກສາວຂອງລາວ, as wife.
15:18 And as they were traveling together, she was urged by her husband that she ask her father for a field. And she sighed, as she was sitting on her donkey. And Caleb said to her, “What is it?"
15:19 But she answered: “Give a blessing to me. You have given to me a southern and dry land; join to it also a watered land.” And so Caleb gave to her the watered land above and below it.
15:20 This is the possession of the tribe of the sons of Judah, by their families.
15:21 And the cities, from the furthest parts of the sons of Judah, beside the borders of Edom to the south, were: Kabzeel and Eder and Jagur,
15:22 and Kinah and Dimonah and Adadah,
15:23 and Kadesh and Hazor and Ithnan,

15:47 Ashdod, with its towns and villages. Gaza, with its towns and villages, as far as the torrent of Egypt, with the great sea as its border.
15:48 And on the mountain, Shamir and Jattir and Socoh,

16:1 ເຊັ່ນ​ດຽວ​ກັນ, the lot of the sons of Joseph fell from the Jordan, opposite Jericho and its waters, to the east, to the wilderness that ascends from Jericho to the mountain of Bethel.
16:2 And it goes out from Bethel to Luz. And it crosses the border of Archi to Ataroth.
16:3 And it descends to the west, beside the border of Japhleti, as far as the borders of lower Beth-horon, and to Gezer. And the last parts of its regions are by the great sea.
16:4 And Manasseh and Ephraim, the sons of Joseph, possessed it.
16:5 And the border of the sons of Ephraim was made by their families. And their possession toward the east was from Ataroth-addar, as far as upper Beth-horon,
16:6 and the confines extend to the sea. ແຕ່​ຢ່າງ​ແທ້​ຈິງ, Michmethath looks toward the north, and it circles around the borders, ໄປ​ສູ່​ພາກ​ຕາ​ເວັນ​ອອກ, into Taanath-shiloh. And it continues on, from the east, to Janoah.
16:7 And it descends from Janoah to Ataroth and Naarah. and it continues to Jericho, and it extends to the Jordan.
16:8 From Tappuah, it passes on, opposite the sea, into the Valley of Reeds. And its exit is at the very salty sea. This is the possession of the tribe of the sons of Ephraim, by their families.
16:9 And there were cities, with their villages, which were set aside for the sons of Ephraim, in the midst of the possession of the sons of Manasseh.
16:10 And the sons of Ephraim did not put to death the Canaanite that was living at Gezer. And the Canaanite lived in the midst of Ephraim, ເຖິງ​ແມ່ນ​ວ່າ​ມື້​ນີ້, paying tribute.

17:1 Now this lot fell to the tribe of Manasseh, since he is the firstborn of Joseph: to Machir, the firstborn of Manasseh, the father of Gilead, who was a fighting man, and he had as a possession Gilead and Bashan;
17:2 and to the rest of the sons of Manasseh, according to their families: to the sons of Abiezer, and to the sons of Helek, and to the sons of Asriel, and to the sons of Shechem, and to the sons of Hepher, and to the sons of Shemida. These are the sons of Manasseh, ລູກ​ຊາຍ​ຂອງ​ໂຢ​ເຊັບ, the males, by their families.
17:3 ແຕ່​ຢ່າງ​ແທ້​ຈິງ, Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, had no sons, but only daughters, whose names are these: Mahlah and Noah and Hoglah and Milcah and Tirzah.
17:4 And they went before the sight of Eleazar, ປະໂລຫິດໄດ້, and Joshua, the son of Nun, and the leaders, ເວົ້າ: “The Lord instructed by the hand of Moses that a possession ought to be given to us, in the midst of our brothers.” And so, he gave to them, in accord with the order of the Lord, a possession in the midst of the brothers of their father.
17:5 And by lot, there fell ten portions to Manasseh, aside from the land of Gilead and Bashan beyond the Jordan.
17:6 And so the daughters of Manasseh possessed an inheritance in the midst of his sons. But the land of Gilead fell by lot to the sons of Manasseh that were left.
17:7 And the border of Manasseh was from Asher to Michmethath, which looks out toward Shechem. And it goes out, to the right, beside the inhabitants of the Fountain of Tappuah.
17:8 For by lot, there also fell to Manasseh the land of Tappuah, which is beside the borders of Manasseh, and which belongs to the sons of Ephraim.
17:9 And the border descends to the Valley of Reeds, to the south of the torrent of the cities of Ephraim, which are in the midst of the cities of Manasseh. The border of Manasseh is to the north of the torrent, and its exit extends to the sea.
17:10 So it is that the possession of Ephraim is in the south, and that of Manasseh is in the north, and both are enclosed by the sea, and they are joined together by the tribe of Asher to the north, and by the tribe of Issachar to the east.
17:11 And the inheritance of Manasseh, in Issachar and in Asher, was Bethshean and its villages, and Ibleam with its villages, and the inhabitants of Dor, with their towns, likewise the inhabitants of Endor with their villages, and similarly the inhabitants of Taanach with their villages, and the inhabitants of Megiddo with their villages, and one third part of the city of Naphath.
17:12 The sons of Manasseh were not able to overthrow these cities, and so the Canaanite began to dwell in their land.
17:13 But after the sons of Israel had grown strong, they subdued the Canaanites, and made them their tributaries, but they did not kill them.
17:14 And the sons of Joseph spoke to Joshua, ແລະ​ພວກ​ເຂົາ​ເຈົ້າ​ເວົ້າ​ວ່າ, “Why have you given to me as a possession one lot and one portion, while I am of such a great multitude, and the Lord has blessed me?"
17:15 And Joshua said to them, “If you are a numerous people, go up into the forest, and cut out space for yourself in the land of the Perizzites and the Rephaim, since the possession of mount Ephraim is too narrow for you.”
17:16 And the sons of Joseph responded to him: “We are not able to ascend to the mountains, since the Canaanites, who live in the plains, in which are situated Bethshean, with its villages, and Jezreel, possessing the middle of the valley, use chariots of iron.”
17:17 And Joshua said to the house of Joseph, to Ephraim and Manasseh: “You are a numerous people, and you have great strength. You shall not have only one lot.
17:18 ແທນ​ທີ່​ຈະ​ເປັນ, you shall cross to the mountain, and you shall cut down and clear out for yourselves space in which to live. And you shall be able to advance further, when you will have destroyed the Canaanite, ຜູ້​ທີ່, as you say, has iron chariots and is very strong.”

18:1 And all the sons of Israel gathered together at Shiloh, and there they stationed the Tabernacle of the Testimony. And the land was subjected to them.
18:2 But there remained seven tribes of the sons of Israel which had not yet received their possessions.
18:3 And Joshua said to them: “For how long will you draw back in idleness, and not enter to possess the land, ທີ່ພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, ພຣະເຈົ້າຂອງບັນພະບຸລຸດຂອງທ່ານ, has given to you?
18:4 Select three men from each tribe, so that I may send them, and they may go forth and circle through the land, and may describe it according to the number of each multitude, and may bring back to me what they have written down.
18:5 Divide the land for yourselves into seven parts. Let Judah be its bounds on the southern side, and the house of Joseph to the north.
18:6 The land that is in the middle, between these, write it down in seven parts. And you shall come to me, so that I may cast lots for you about this, before the Lord your God.
18:7 But there is no portion among you for the Levites. ແທນ​ທີ່​ຈະ​ເປັນ, the priesthood of the Lord is their inheritance. And Gad and Reuben, and the one half tribe of Manasseh, have already received their possessions beyond the Jordan in the eastern region, which Moses, ຜູ້ຮັບໃຊ້ຂອງພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, gave to them.”
18:8 And when the men had risen up, so that they might go out to describe the land, Joshua instructed them, ເວົ້າ, “Circle through the land, and describe it, and return to me, so that I may cast lots for you about this, before the Lord, in Shiloh.”
18:9 And so they went out. And surveying it, they divided it into seven parts, writing it in a book. And they returned to Joshua, to the camp at Shiloh.
18:10 And he cast lots before the Lord, at Shiloh, and he divided the land to the sons of Israel, in seven parts.

18:16 And it descends to that part of the mountain which looks out toward the Valley of the sons of Hinnom. And it is opposite the northern region, in the furthest part of the Valley of the Rephaim. And it descends into Geennom, (ທີ່​ຢູ່, the Valley of Hinnom,) near the side of the Jebusite toward the south. And it extends to the Fountain of Rogel,

18:19 And it advances before Beth-hoglah, to the north. And its exits are to the north, opposite the bay of the very salty sea, in the southern region at the end of the Jordan,
18:20 which is its border to the east. This is the possession of the sons of Benjamin, with their borders all around, and by their families.

20:2 Separate the cities of refuge, about which I spoke to you by the hand of Moses,
20:3 so that anyone who will have struck down a life unintentionally may flee to them. ແລະ​ດັ່ງ​ນັ້ນ, he may be able to escape from the wrath of a close relative, who is an avenger of blood.
20:4 And when he will have fled to one of these cities, he shall stand before the gate of the city, and he shall speak to the ancients of that city, the things that prove him innocent. And so shall they receive him, and give him a place in which to live.
20:5 And if the avenger of blood will have pursued him, they shall not deliver him into his hands. For he struck down his neighbor unknowingly, one who was not proven to have been his enemy two or three days before.
20:6 And he shall live in that city, until he stands before judgment in order to render the facts of his case, and until the death of the high priest, whoever it will be in that time. Then the one who killed a man may return, and he may enter his own city and house, from which he had fled.”
20:7 And they decreed Kedesh in Galilee, at mount Naphtali, and Shechem, at mount Ephraim, and Kiriath-Arba, which is Hebron, at mount Judah.
20:8 And beyond the Jordan, opposite the eastern side of Jericho, they appointed Bezer, which is situated on the plain of the wilderness of the tribe of Reuben, and Ramoth in Gilead of the tribe of Gad, and Golan in Bashan of the tribe of Manasseh.
20:9 These cities were established for all the sons of Israel, and for the new arrivals who were living among them, so that whoever had struck down a life unintentionally might flee to these, and not die at the hand of a close relative who desires to vindicate the blood that was shed, until he should stand before the people, in order to present his case.

22:3 Neither have you forsaken your brothers during this long time, ເຖິງແມ່ນວ່າເຖິງປັດຈຸບັນ, keeping the orders of the Lord your God.

22:5 And may you continue to observe attentively, and to work to fulfill, the commandment and the law that Moses, ຜູ້ຮັບໃຊ້ຂອງພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, instructed to you, so that you may love the Lord your God, and walk in all his ways, and keep all his commandments, and cling to him, and serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.”
22:6 And Joshua blessed them, and he sent them away. And they returned to their tents.
22:7 Now to the one half tribe of Manasseh, Moses had given a possession in Bashan. ແລະເພາະສະນັ້ນຈຶ່ງ, to the one half that was left over, Joshua gave a lot among the remainder of their brothers across the Jordan, in the western region.

22:9 And the sons of Reuben, and the sons of Gad, and the one half tribe of Manasseh returned, and they went away from the sons of Israel at Shiloh, which is situated in Canaan, so that they might enter into Gilead, the land of their possession, which they had obtained according to the order of the Lord, by the hand of Moses.
22:10 And when they had arrived at the hills of the Jordan in the land of Canaan, they built an altar of immense magnitude beside the Jordan.
22:11 And when the sons of Israel had heard of it, and certain messengers had reported to them that the sons of Reuben, and of Gad, and of the one half tribe of Manasseh had built an altar in the land of Canaan, upon the hills of the Jordan, facing the sons of Israel,
22:12 they all assembled at Shiloh, so that they might go up and battle against them.
22:13 And in the interim, they sent to them, in the land of Gilead, Phinehas, ລູກຊາຍຂອງເອເລອາຊາ, ປະໂລຫິດໄດ້,
22:14 and ten leaders with him, one from each tribe.
22:15 And they went to the sons of Reuben, and of Gad, and of the one half tribe of Manasseh, in the land of Gilead, and they said to them:
22:16 “All the people of the Lord declare this: What is this transgression? Why have you forsaken the Lord, ພຣະ​ເຈົ້າ​ຂອງ​ອິດ​ສະ​ຣາ​ເອນ, by building a sacrilegious altar, and by withdrawing from the worship of him?
22:17 Is it a small thing to you that you have sinned with Baal of Peor, and that the stain of that crime continues among us, ເຖິງແມ່ນວ່າເຖິງປັດຈຸບັນ? And many of the people have fallen.
22:18 And yet you have forsaken the Lord today, and tomorrow his wrath will rage against all of Israel.
22:19 But if you consider the land of your possession to be unclean, cross over to the land in which is the tabernacle of the Lord, and live among us. But do not withdraw from the Lord, and from our fellowship, by building an altar contrary to the altar of the Lord our God.
22:20 Did not Achan, the son of Zerah, go against the commandment of the Lord, and so his wrath was laid over all the people of Israel? And he was only one man. If only he had perished in his wickedness alone!"
22:21 And the sons of Reuben, and of Gad, and of the one half tribe of Manasseh responded to the leaders of the delegation from Israel:
22:22 “The Lord, the almighty God, ພຣະ​ຜູ້​ເປັນ​ເຈົ້າ, the almighty God, he knows, and also Israel will understand: If we have constructed this altar with intent of transgression, let him not preserve us, but instead punish us immediately.
22:23 And if we have acted with a mind so that we might present upon it holocausts, and sacrifice, and victims of peace offerings, let him inquire and judge.
22:24 ແທນ​ທີ່​ຈະ​ເປັນ, we have acted with this greater thought and design, that we would say: Tomorrow your sons will say to our sons: ‘What is there between you and the Lord, ພຣະ​ເຈົ້າ​ຂອງ​ອິດ​ສະ​ຣາ​ເອນ?
22:25 The Lord has stationed the river Jordan as the border between us and you, O sons of Reuben, O sons of Gad. ແລະເພາະສະນັ້ນຈຶ່ງ, you have no part in the Lord.’ And by this occasion, your sons would turn away our sons from the fear of the Lord. And so we sought something better,
22:26 and we said: Let us build us an altar, not for holocausts, and not to offer victims,
22:27 but as a testimony between us and you, and between our descendents and your progeny, so that we may serve the Lord, and so that it may be our right to offer holocausts, and victims, and peace offerings, and so that tomorrow your sons may not say to our sons: ‘You have no part in the Lord.’
22:28 And if they decide to say this, they shall respond to them: "ຈົ່ງ​ເບິ່ງ, the altar of the Lord, which our fathers made, not for holocausts, and not for sacrifice, but instead as a testimony between us and you.’
22:29 May this wickedness be far from us, such that we would withdraw from the Lord, and would forsake his paths, by constructing an altar to offer holocausts, and sacrifices, and victims, contrary to the altar of the Lord our God, which was built before his tabernacle.”
22:30 And when Phinehas, ປະໂລຫິດໄດ້, and the leaders of the delegation who were with him, had heard this, they were pleased. And they accepted very willingly the words of the sons of Reuben, and of Gad, and of the one half tribe of Manasseh.
22:31 And Phinehas, ປະໂລຫິດໄດ້, ລູກຊາຍຂອງເອເລອາຊາ, ກ່າວ​ກັບ​ພວກ​ເຂົາ: “Now we know that the Lord is with us. For you are a stranger to this transgression. And so you have freed the sons of Israel from the hand of the Lord.”
22:32 And he returned with the leaders, from the sons of Reuben and of Gad, out of the land of Gilead, into the parts of Canaan, ກັບພວກລູກຊາຍຂອງອິດສະຣາເອນ. And he reported to them.
22:33 And the word pleased all who heard it. And the sons of Israel praised God, and they no longer said that they would go up against them, and fight, and destroy the land of their possession.
22:34 And the sons of Reuben and the sons of Gad called the altar that they had built: Our testimony that the Lord himself is God.

24:4 and I gave to him Isaac. And to him, I gave again Jacob and Esau. And I gave mount Seir to Esau as a possession. ແຕ່​ຢ່າງ​ແທ້​ຈິງ, Jacob and his sons descended into Egypt.
24:5 And I sent Moses and Aaron, and I struck Egypt with many signs and portents.
24:6 And I led you and your fathers away from Egypt, and you arrived at the sea. And the Egyptians pursued your fathers with chariots and horsemen, as far as the Red Sea.
24:7 Then the sons of Israel cried out to the Lord. And he stationed a darkness between you and the Egyptians, and he led the sea over them, and he covered them. Your eyes saw all that I did in Egypt, and you lived in the wilderness for a long time.
24:8 And I led you into the land of the Amorite, who was living beyond the Jordan. And when they fought against you, I delivered them into your hands, and you possessed their land, and you put them to death.
24:9 Then Balak, the son of Zippor, the king of Moab, rose up and fought against Israel. And he sent and called for Balaam, ລູກ​ຊາຍ​ຂອງ​ເບ​ໂອ, so that he might curse you.
24:10 And I was not willing to listen to him, but on the contrary, I blessed you through him, and I freed you from his hand.
24:11 And you crossed over the Jordan, and you arrived at Jericho. And the men of that city fought against you: the Amorite, ແລະຄົນເປລິສະຊີ, ແລະຊາວການາອານ, ແລະ Hittite, and the Girgashite, ແລະຄົນຮີໄວ, ແລະເສດສັດທາໄດ້. And I delivered them into your hands.
24:12 And I sent wasps before you. And I drove them from their places, the two kings of the Amorites, but not by your sword, and not by your bow.
24:13 And I gave you a land, in which you did not labor, and cities, which you did not build, so that you might live in them, and vineyards and olive groves, which you did not plant.’
24:14 ໃນປັດຈຸບັນເພາະສະນັ້ນຈຶ່ງ, fear the Lord, and serve him with a perfect and very sincere heart. And take away the gods that your fathers served in Mesopotamia and in Egypt, and serve the Lord.
24:15 But if it seems evil to you that you would serve the Lord, a choice is given to you. Choose today what pleases you, and whom you ought to serve above all else, either the gods that your fathers served in Mesopotamia, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you live: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
24:16 And the people responded, ແລະ​ພວກ​ເຂົາ​ເຈົ້າ​ເວົ້າ​ວ່າ: “Far be it from us that we would forsake the Lord, and serve foreign gods.
24:17 The Lord our God himself led us and our fathers away from the land of Egypt, from the house of servitude. And he accomplished immense signs in our sight, and he preserved us along the entire way by which we journeyed, and among all the people through whom we passed.
24:18 And he cast out all the nations, the Amorite, the inhabitant of the land that we entered. ແລະ​ດັ່ງ​ນັ້ນ, we will serve the Lord, for he is our God.”
24:19 And Joshua said to the people: “You will not be able to serve the Lord. For he is a holy and powerful God, and he is jealous, and he will not ignore your wickedness and sins.
24:20 If you leave behind the Lord, and you serve foreign gods, he will turn himself, and he will afflict you, and he will overthrow you, after all the good that he has offered to you.”
24:21 And the people said to Joshua, “By no means will it be as you are saying, but we will serve the Lord.”
24:22 And Joshua said to the people, “You yourselves are witnesses, that you have chosen the Lord so that you may serve him.” And they answered, “We are witnesses.”
24:23 “Now therefore," ລາວ​ເວົ້າ​ວ່າ, “take away strange gods from among yourselves, and incline your hearts to the Lord, the God of Israel.”
24:24 And the people said to Joshua, “We will serve the Lord our God, and we will be obedient to his precepts.”
24:25 ເພາະ​ສະ​ນັ້ນ, ໃນວັນນັ້ນ, Joshua struck a covenant, and he set before the people at Shechem the precepts and the judgments.
24:26 He also wrote all these things in the volume of the law of the Lord. And he took a very great stone, and he stationed it under the oak that was in the Sanctuary of the Lord.
24:27 And he said to all the people, “Lo, this stone shall be to you as a testimony, which has heard all the words of the Lord that he has spoken to you, lest perhaps, afterward, you might choose to deny it, and to lie to the Lord your God.”
24:28 And he dismissed the people, each one to their own possession.
24:29 ພາຍຫລັງເຫດການເຫລົ່ານີ້, ໂຢ​ຊວຍ, the son of Nun, ຜູ້ຮັບໃຊ້ຂອງພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ, ເສຍຊີວິດ, being one hundred and ten years old.
24:30 And they buried him within the borders of his possession at Timnath-Serah, which is situated on mount Ephraim, before the northern side of mount Gaash.
24:31 And Israel served the Lord during all the days of Joshua, and of the elders who lived for a long time after Joshua, and who had known all the works of the Lord that he had accomplished in Israel.
24:32 And the bones of Joseph, which the sons of Israel had brought from Egypt, they buried at Shechem, in a portion of the field that Jacob had purchased from the sons of Hamor, the father of Shechem, for one hundred young female sheep, and so it was in the possession of the sons of Joseph.
24:33 ເຊັ່ນ​ດຽວ​ກັນ​ນັ້ນ, ເອ​ເລ​ອາ​ຊາ, the son of Aaron, ເສຍຊີວິດ. And they buried him at Gibeah, which belongs to Phinehas, ລູກຊາຍຂອງລາວ, and which was given to him on mount Ephraim.
