Joshua 22:25 (KJV)
For the LORD hath made Jordan a border between us and you, ye children of Reuben and children of Gad; ye have no part in the LORD: so shall your children make our children cease from fearing the LORD.
Yahshua/Joshua 22:27 "but to be a witness between you and us and our generations after us, to do the service of יהוה/YHWH before Him with our burnt offerings, with our sacrifices, and with our peace offerings, that your sons should not say to our sons in time to come, “You have no portion with יהוה/YHWH.”
“And we said, ‘If they ever say this to us, or to our descendants, we will answer: Look at the replica of the LORD’s altar, which our ancestors built, not for burnt offerings and sacrifices, but as a witness between us and you.’
Yahshua/Joshua 22:29 “Far be it from us to rebel against יהוה, and to turn from following יהוה this day, to build an altar for burnt offerings, for grain offerings, or for sacrifices, besides the altar of יהוה our Strength which is before His Dwelling Place.”
Joshua 22:30 (NASB) [SUP]30 [/SUP] So when Phinehas the priest and the leaders of the congregation, even the heads of the families of Israel who were with him, heard the words which the sons of Reuben and the sons of Gad and the sons of Manasseh spoke, it pleased them.
Yahshua/Joshua 22:31, "And Pineḥas son of El‛azar the priest said to the children of Re’uḇĕn, and to the children of Gaḏ, and to the children of Menashsheh, “Today we know that יהוה is in our midst, because you have not committed against יהוה this trespass. Now you have delivered the children of Yisra’ĕl out of the hand of יהוה.”
Joshua 22:32 (NASB) [SUP]32 [/SUP] Then Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest and the leaders returned from the sons of Reuben and from the sons of Gad, from the land of Gilead to the land of Canaan, to the sons of Israel, and brought back word to them.
Yahshua/Joshua 22:33 So the matter was good in the eyes of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and the children of Yisra’ĕl blessed Ylohim. And they spoke no more of going against to fight, to destroy the land where the children of Re’uḇĕn and Gaḏ dwelt.
[FONT="]And the Reubenites and the Gadites gave the altar this name: A Witness[FONT="][/FONT] Between Us—that the [/FONT][FONT="]Lord[/FONT][FONT="] is God. [/FONT][FONT="]Joshua 22:34[/FONT]
Yahshua/Joshua 23:2 "And Yehoshua (ben nun) called for all Yisra’ĕl, and for their elders, and for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers, and said to them, “I am old, advanced in years."
Yahshua ben nun/Joshua 23:4 “See, I have divided to you by lot these nations that remain, to be an inheritance for your tribes, from the Yardĕn, with all the nations that I have cut off, as far as the Great Sea toward the setting of the sun.
Joshua 23:7 (NASB) [SUP]7 [/SUP] so that you will not associate with these nations, these which remain among you, or mention the name of their gods, or make anyone swear by them, or serve them, or bow down to them.
