- 16 So Joshua arose early in the morning and brought Israel near by tribes, F70 and the tribe of Judah was taken. 17 He brought the family of Judah near, and he took the family of the Zerahites; and he brought the family of the Zerahites near man by man, and Zabdi was taken. 18 He brought his household near man by man; and Achan, R117 son of Carmi, son of Zabdi, son of Zerah, from the tribe of Judah, was taken. 19 Then Joshua said to Achan, "My son, I implore you, give R118 glory to the LORD, the God of Israel, and give praise to Him; and tell me now what you have done. Do not hide it from me." 20 So Achan answered Joshua and said, "Truly, I have sinned against the LORD, the God of Israel, and this F71 is what I did: 21 when I saw among the spoil a beautiful mantle from Shinar and two hundred shekels of silver and a bar of gold fifty shekels in weight, then I coveted R119 them and took them; and behold, they are concealed in the earth inside my tent with the silver underneath it." 22 So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran to the tent; and behold, it was concealed in his tent with the silver underneath it. 23 They took them from inside the tent and brought them to Joshua and to all the sons of Israel, and they poured them out before the LORD. 24 Then Joshua and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, the silver, the mantle, the bar of gold, his sons, his daughters, his oxen, F72 his donkeys, his sheep, his tent and all that belonged to him; and they brought them up to the R120 valley of Achor. F73 25 Joshua said, "Why have you troubled R121 us? The LORD will trouble you this day." And all Israel stoned them F74 with stones; and they burned them with fire after F75 they had stoned them with stones. 26 They raised over him a great heap of stones that stands to this day, and the LORD turned from the fierceness of His anger. Therefore the name of that place has been called the R122 valley of Achor F76 to this day.
