Joshua 23:1 - Joshua 24:33

I'm old, my work's accomplished. Remember all God's law.
Stay close to God. Remember Him. His word is without flaw.

He it is that blesses you. A thousand, one shall chase.
For God is He who fights for you. He's given you this place.

Love God. Don't turn and walk away. Consider what He's done.
Of all the promises He made, none failed, no not one.

Your father's lived before the flood and some served other God's.
I called your father Abraham. His faith defied all odds.

I gave this land to Isaac, and then Jacob his son.
I sent you down to Egypt, then delivered every one.

I brought you out, and when your fathers thought that all was lost,
I swallowed Pharaoh in the sea, but brought you safe across.

I brought you to this land of the Amoritish king.
I fought for you, protected you, and gave you songs to sing.

The Perizzites, the Canaanites, Hittites and Girgashites,
The Hivites and the Jebusites and all the other ites.

I delivered all into your hand. Sent the hornet. Drove them out.
I gave you all their farms and land, their cities with a shout.

Do not forget what God has done. Don't follow idol fraud.
The people answered with one voice. We'll always follow God.

He brought us out of Egypt. He preserved us on the way.
Drove the enemy out before us. He's why we're here today.

Then Joshua wrote this in a book. Set a stone for all to see.
This stone shall be a witness, for you have promised me.

Will you stay true and worship God? Unto Him we will hold.
So Joshua God's servant died, one hundred, ten years old.
