But the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 committedH4603 a trespassH4604 in the accursedH2764 thing: for Achan,H5912 the sonH1121 of Carmi,H3756 the sonH1121 of Zabdi,H2067 the sonH1121 of Zerah,H2226 of the tribeH4294 of Judah,H3063 tookH3947 of the accursedH2764 thing: and the angerH639 of the LORDH3068 was kindledH2734 against the childrenH1121 of Israel.H3478
And JoshuaH3091 sentH7971 menH582 from JerichoH3405 to Ai,H5857 whichH834 is besideH5973 Bethaven,H1007 on the eastH6924 of Bethel,H1008 and spokeH559 to them, saying,H559 GoH5927 up and viewH7270 the country.H776 And the menH582 wentH5927 up and viewedH7270 Ai.H5857
And they returnedH7725 to Joshua,H3091 and saidH559 to him, Let not allH3605 the peopleH5971 goH5927 up; but let about two orH176 threeH7969 thousandH505 menH376 goH5927 up and smiteH5217 Ai;H5857 and make not allH3605 the peopleH5971 to laborH3021 thither;H8033 for they are but few.H4592
So there wentH5927 up thitherH8033 of the peopleH5971 about threeH7969 thousandH505 men:H376 and they fledH5127 beforeH6440 the menH582 of Ai.H5857
And the menH582 of AiH5857 smoteH5221 of them about thirtyH7970 and sixH8337 men:H376 for they chasedH7291 them from beforeH6440 the gateH8179 even to Shebarim,H7671 and smoteH5221 them in the goingH4174 down:H4174 why the heartsH3824 of the peopleH5971 melted,H4549 and becameH1961 as water.H4325
And JoshuaH3091 rentH7167 his clothes,H8071 and fellH5307 to the earthH776 on his faceH6440 beforeH6440 the arkH727 of the LORDH3068 untilH5704 the eventide,H6153 he and the eldersH2205 of Israel,H3478 and putH5927 dustH6083 on their heads.H7218
And JoshuaH3091 said,H559 Alas,H162 O LORDH136 God,H3069 whyH4100 have you at all broughtH5674 thisH2088 peopleH5971 overH5674 Jordan,H3383 to deliverH5414 us into the handH3027 of the Amorites,H567 to destroyH6 us? wouldH3863 to God we had been content,H2974 and dwelledH3427 on the otherH5676 sideH5676 Jordan!H3383
O LORD,H136 whatH4100 shall I say,H559 whenH6310 IsraelH3478 turnsH2015 their backsH6203 beforeH6440 their enemies!H341
For the CanaanitesH3669 and allH3605 the inhabitantsH3427 of the landH776 shall hearH8085 of it, and shall environH5437 us round,H5921 and cutH3772 off our nameH8034 from the earth:H776 and whatH4100 will you doH6213 to your greatH1419 name?H8034
And the LORDH3068 saidH559 to Joshua,H3091 GetH6965 you up; whyH4100 lieH5307 you thusH2088 on your face?H6440
IsraelH3478 has sinned,H2398 and they have alsoH1571 transgressedH5674 my covenantH1285 whichH834 I commandedH6680 them: for they have evenH1571 takenH3947 of the accursedH2764 thing, and have alsoH1571 stolen,H1589 and dissembledH3584 also,H1571 and they have putH7760 it evenH1571 among their own stuff.H3627
Therefore the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 couldH3201 not standH6965 beforeH6440 their enemies,H341 but turnedH6437 their backsH6203 beforeH6440 their enemies,H341 becauseH3588 they were accursed:H2764 neitherH3808 will I be with you any more,H3254 exceptH518 H3808 you destroyH8045 the accursedH2764 from amongH7130 you.
Up, sanctifyH6942 the people,H5971 and say,H559 SanctifyH6942 yourselves against to morrow:H4279 for thusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 GodH430 of Israel,H3478 There is an accursedH2764 thing in the middleH7130 of you, O Israel:H3478 you canH3201 not standH6965 beforeH6440 your enemies,H341 untilH5704 you takeH5493 away the accursedH2764 thing from amongH7130 you.
In the morningH1242 therefore you shall be broughtH7126 according to your tribes:H7626 and it shall be, that the tribeH7626 whichH834 the LORDH3068 takesH3920 shall comeH7126 according to the familiesH4940 thereof; and the familyH4940 whichH834 the LORDH3068 shall takeH3920 shall comeH7126 by households;H1004 and the householdH1004 whichH834 the LORDH3068 shall takeH3920 shall comeH7126 manH1397 by man.H1397
And it shall be, that he that is takenH3920 with the accursedH2764 thing shall be burntH8313 with fire,H784 he and allH3605 that he has: becauseH3588 he has transgressedH5674 the covenantH1285 of the LORD,H3068 and becauseH3588 he has workedH6213 follyH5039 in Israel.H3478
So JoshuaH3091 roseH7925 up earlyH7925 in the morning,H1242 and broughtH7126 IsraelH3478 by their tribes;H7626 and the tribeH7626 of JudahH3063 was taken:H3920
And he broughtH7126 the familyH4940 of Judah;H3063 and he tookH3920 the familyH4940 of the Zarhites:H2227 and he broughtH7126 the familyH4940 of the ZarhitesH2227 manH1397 by man;H1397 and ZabdiH2067 was taken:H3920
And he broughtH7126 his householdH1004 manH1397 by man;H1397 and Achan,H5912 the sonH1121 of Carmi,H3756 the sonH1121 of Zabdi,H2067 the sonH1121 of Zerah,H2226 of the tribeH4294 of Judah,H3063 was taken.H3920
And JoshuaH3091 saidH559 to Achan,H5912 My son,H1121 give,H7760 I prayH4994 you, gloryH3519 to the LORDH3068 GodH430 of Israel,H3478 and makeH5414 confessionH8426 to him; and tellH5046 me nowH4994 whatH4100 you have done;H6213 hideH3582 it not from me.
And AchanH5912 answeredH6030 Joshua,H3091 and said,H559 IndeedH546 I have sinnedH2398 against the LORDH3068 GodH430 of Israel,H3478 and thusH2063 and thusH2063 have I done:H6213
When I sawH7200 among the spoilsH7998 a goodlyH2896 BabylonishH8152 garment,H155 and two hundredH3967 shekelsH8255 of silver,H3701 and a wedgeH3956 of goldH2091 of fiftyH2572 shekelsH8255 weight,H4948 then I covetedH2530 them, and tookH3947 them; and, behold,H2009 they are hidH2934 in the earthH776 in the middleH8432 of my tent,H168 and the silverH3701 underH8478 it.
So JoshuaH3091 sentH7971 messengers,H4397 and they ranH7323 to the tent;H168 and, behold,H2009 it was hidH2934 in his tent,H168 and the silverH3701 underH8478 it.
And they tookH3947 them out of the middleH8432 of the tent,H168 and broughtH935 them to Joshua,H3091 and to allH3605 the childrenH1121 of Israel,H3478 and laidH3332 them out beforeH6440 the LORD.H3068
And Joshua,H3091 and allH3605 IsraelH3478 with him, tookH3947 AchanH5912 the sonH1121 of Zerah,H2226 and the silver,H3701 and the garment,H155 and the wedgeH3956 of gold,H2091 and his sons,H1121 and his daughters,H1323 and his oxen,H7794 and his asses,H2543 and his sheep,H6629 and his tent,H168 and allH3605 that he had: and they broughtH5927 them to the valleyH6010 of Achor.H5911
And JoshuaH3091 said,H559 WhyH4100 have you troubledH5916 us? the LORDH3068 shall troubleH5916 you thisH2088 day.H3117 And allH3605 IsraelH3478 stonedH5619 him with stones,H68 and burnedH8313 them with fire,H784 after they had stonedH7275 them with stones.H68
And they raisedH6965 overH5921 him a greatH1419 heapH1530 of stonesH68 to thisH2088 day.H3117 So the LORDH3068 turnedH7725 from the fiercenessH2740 of his anger.H639 WhyH5921 H3651 the nameH8034 of that placeH4725 was called,H7121 The valleyH6010 of Achor,H5911 to thisH2088 day.H3117
