Joshua’s epitaph

Joshua 24:29-33 (JDV)

Joshua 24:29 After these things, Yahveh’s servant, Joshua son of Nun, died at the age of 110.
Joshua 24:30 They buried him in his allotted territory at Timnath-Serah, in the hill country of Ephraim north of Mount Gaash.
Joshua 24:31 Israel worshiped Yahveh throughout Joshua’s lifetime and during the lifetimes of the elders who outlived Joshua and who had experienced all the works Yahveh had done for Israel.
Joshua 24:32 Joseph’s bones, which the Israelites had brought up from Egypt, were buried at Shechem in the parcel of land Jacob had purchased from the sons of Hamor, Shechem’s father, for a hundred pieces of silver. It was an inheritance for Joseph’s descendants.
Joshua 24:33 And Eleazar son of Aaron died, and they buried him at Gibeah, which had been given to his son Phinehas in the hill country of Ephraim.

Joshua’s epitaph

The book of Joshua ends with his death and a statement that those under his leadership continued to serve Yahveh during the lifetimes of the elders who survived him.

May our Lord give us such an epitaph.
