Joshua 23

23:1 And it came to pass, a long time after that the LORD had
 given rest to Israel from all their enemies on all sides, that
 Joshua became old [and] advanced in age.
23:2 And Joshua called for all Israel, [and] for their elders,
 and for their heads, and for their judges, and for their
 officers, and said to them, I am old [and] advanced in age:
23:3 And ye have seen all that the LORD your God hath done to
 all these nations because of you; for the LORD your God [is] he
 that hath fought for you.
23:4 Behold, I have divided to you by lot these nations that
 remain, to be an inheritance for your tribes, from Jordan, with
 all the nations that I have cut off, even to the great sea
23:5 And the LORD your God, he shall expel them from before you,
 and drive them from your sight; and ye shall possess their
 land, as the LORD your God hath promised to you.
23:6 Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that
 is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not
 aside from it [to] the right hand or [to] the left;
23:7 That ye come not among these nations, these that remain
 among you; neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor
 cause to swear [by them], neither serve them, nor bow
 yourselves to them:
23:8 But cleave to the LORD your God, as ye have done to this
23:9 For the LORD hath driven out from before you great nations
 and strong: but [as for] you, no man hath been able to stand
 before you to this day.
23:10 One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your
 God, he [it is] that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you.
23:11 Take good heed therefore to yourselves, that ye love the
 LORD your God.
23:12 Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave to the
 remnant of these nations, [even] these that remain among you,
 and shall make marriages with them, and associate with them,
 and they with you:
23:13 Know for a certainty that the LORD your God will no more
 drive out [any of] these nations from before you; but they
 shall be snares and traps to you, and scourges in your sides,
 and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good
 land which the LORD your God hath given you.
23:14 And behold, this day I [am] going the way of all the
 earth; and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls,
 that not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the
 LORD your God spoke concerning you: all are come to pass to
 you, [and] not one thing hath failed of it.
23:15 Therefore it shall come to pass, [that] as all good things
 are come upon you, which the LORD your God promised you; so
 shall the LORD bring upon you all evil things, until he hath
 destroyed you from off this good land which the LORD your God
 hath given you.
23:16 When ye have transgressed the covenant of the LORD your
 God, which he commanded you, and have gone and served other
 gods, and bowed yourselves to them; then shall the anger of the
 LORD be kindled against you, and ye shall perish quickly from
 off the good land which he hath given to you.
