Teks -- Joshua 7:1-26 (NET)
Achan Sins and is Punished7:1 But the Israelites disobeyed the command about the city’s riches . Achan son of Carmi , son of Zabdi , son of Zerah , from the tribe of Judah , stole some of the riches . The Lord was furious with the Israelites . 7:2 Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai (which is located near Beth Aven , east of Bethel ) and instructed them, “Go up and spy on the land .” So the men went up and spied on Ai . 7:3 They returned and reported to Joshua , “Don’t send the whole army . About two or three thousand men are adequate to defeat Ai . Don’t tire out the whole army , for Ai is small .” 7:4 So about three thousand men went up , but they fled from the men of Ai . 7:5 The men of Ai killed about thirty-six of them and chased them from in front of the city gate all the way to the fissures and defeated them on the steep slope . The people’s courage melted away like water . 7:6 Joshua tore his clothes ; he and the leaders of Israel lay face down on the ground before the ark of the Lord until evening and threw dirt on their heads . 7:7 Joshua prayed , “O , Master , Lord ! Why did you bring these people across the Jordan to hand us over to the Amorites so they could destroy us? 7:8 If only we had been satisfied to live on the other side of the Jordan! O Lord , what can I say now that Israel has retreated before its enemies ? 7:9 When the Canaanites and all who live in the land hear about this, they will turn against us and destroy the very memory of us from the earth . What will you do to protect your great reputation ?” 7:10 The Lord responded to Joshua , “Get up ! Why are you lying there face down ? 7:11 Israel has sinned ; they have violated my covenantal commandment ! They have taken some of the riches ; they have stolen them and deceitfully put them among their own possessions . 7:12 The Israelites are unable to stand before their enemies ; they retreat because they have become subject to annihilation . I will no longer be with you, unless you destroy what has contaminated you. 7:13 Get up ! Ritually consecrate the people and tell them this: ‘Ritually consecrate yourselves for tomorrow , because the Lord God of Israel says, “You are contaminated , O Israel ! You will not be able to stand before your enemies until you remove what is contaminating you.” 7:14 In the morning you must approach in tribal order. The tribe the Lord selects must approach by clans . The clan the Lord selects must approach by families . The family the Lord selects must approach man by man . 7:15 The one caught with the riches must be burned up along with all who belong to him, because he violated the Lord’s covenant and did such a disgraceful thing in Israel .’” 7:16 Bright and early the next morning Joshua made Israel approach in tribal order and the tribe of Judah was selected . 7:17 He then made the clans of Judah approach and the clan of the Zerahites was selected . He made the clan of the Zerahites approach and Zabdi was selected . 7:18 He then made Zabdi’s family approach man by man and Achan son of Carmi , son of Zabdi , son of Zerah , from the tribe of Judah , was selected . 7:19 So Joshua said to Achan , “My son , honor the Lord God of Israel and give him praise ! Tell me what you did ; don’t hide anything from me!” 7:20 Achan told Joshua , “It is true . I have sinned against the Lord God of Israel in this way: 7:21 I saw among the goods we seized a nice robe from Babylon , two hundred silver pieces , and a bar of gold weighing fifty shekels . I wanted them, so I took them. They are hidden in the ground right in the middle of my tent with the silver underneath .” 7:22 Joshua sent messengers who ran to the tent . The things were hidden right in his tent , with the silver underneath . 7:23 They took it all from the middle of the tent , brought it to Joshua and all the Israelites , and placed it before the Lord . 7:24 Then Joshua and all Israel took Achan , son of Zerah , along with the silver , the robe , the bar of gold , his sons , daughters , ox , donkey , sheep , tent , and all that belonged to him and brought them up to the Valley of Disaster . 7:25 Joshua said , “Why have you brought disaster on us? The Lord will bring disaster on you today !” All Israel stoned him to death. (They also stoned and burned the others.) 7:26 Then they erected over him a large pile of stones (it remains to this very day ) and the Lord’s anger subsided . So that place is called the Valley of Disaster to this very day .
