14 Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in
sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side
of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.
15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD,
choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that
were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell:
but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
16 And the people answered and said, God forbid that we
should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods;
17 For the LORD our God, he it is that brought us up and
our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great
signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the
people through whom we passed:
18 And the LORD drave out from before us all the people,
even the Amorites which dwelt in the land: therefore will we also serve the LORD; for he
is our God. (KJV)
