Joshua 24:21 – Judges 1:7

24:25 So Joshua made a covenant for the people that day, and he made a statute and an ordinance for them in Shechem.
24:26 And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and he took a great stone and erected it there under the terebinth that was at the sanctuary of Jehovah.
24:27 And Joshua said to all the people, This stone here shall be as a witness against us; for it has heard all the words of Jehovah, which He has spoken to us; and it shall be as a witness against you, lest you act deceptively against your God.
24:28 Then Joshua sent the people away, each to his own inheritance.
24:29 And after these things Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Jehovah, died at the age of one hundred and ten years.
24:30 And they buried him in the territory of his inheritance, in Timnath-serah, which is in the hill country of Ephraim, north of Mount Gaash.
24:31 And Israel served Jehovah throughout all the days of Joshua and throughout all the days of the elders whose days extended after Joshua’s and who knew all the work of Jehovah that He had done for Israel.
24:32 And Joseph’s bones, which the children of Israel had brought up from Egypt, were buried in Shechem, in the portion of the field that Jacob had bought from the children of Hamor the father of Shechem for a hundred pieces of money; and it became the inheritance of the children of Joseph.
24:33 And Eleazar the son of Aaron died; and they buried him in the hill of Phinehas his son, which had been given to him in the hill country of Ephraim.

1:1 And after the death of Joshua, the children of Israel inquired of Jehovah, saying, Who will go up for us first against the Canaanites, in order to fight against them?
1:2 And Jehovah said, Judah shall go up. I have now given the land into his hand.
1:3 And Judah said to Simeon his brother, Come up with me into my lot, and we will fight against the Canaanites; and I will go also with you into your lot. And Simeon went with him.
1:4 So Judah went up, and Jehovah gave the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hand; and they struck ten thousand of their men in Bezek.
1:5 And they found Adoni-bezek in Bezek and fought with him; and they struck the Canaanites and the Perizzites.
1:6 And Adoni-bezek fled; and they pursued after him and caught him, and they cut off his thumbs and his big toes.
1:7 And Adoni-bezek said, Seventy kings with their thumbs and their big toes cut off gleaned scraps under my table. As I have done, so God has repaid me. And they brought him to Jerusalem, and he died there.
