Joshua 23:1-16, NLT
Joshua’s Final Words to Israel
1The years passed, and the Lord had given the people of Israel rest from all their enemies. Joshua, who was now very old,
6“So be very careful to follow everything Moses wrote in the Book of Instruction. Do not deviate from it, turning either to the right or to the left.
9“For the Lord has driven out great and powerful nations for you, and no one has yet been able to defeat you.
12“But if you turn away from him and cling to the customs of the survivors of these nations remaining among you, and if you intermarry with them,
14“Soon I will die, going the way of everything on earth. Deep in your hearts you know that every promise of the Lord your God has come true. Not a single one has failed!
