Joshua writing (God speaking via scripture...The Word) and directly
quoting what the Lord,
the God of Israel says.
Wycliffe Bible of 1384: But if it
semeth yuel to you, `that ye serue the Lord, chesyng is youun to you; chese ye to you to dai
that, that plesith, whom ye owen most to serue; whether to goddis, whiche youre fadris
serueden in Mesopotanye, whether to the goddis of Ammorreis, in whose lond ye dwellen;
forsothe Y, and myn hows schulen serue the Lord.
King James Bible of 1611:
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.
NAS Bible of 1960: 15 "If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for
yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were
beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and
my house, we will serve the LORD."
1973-78:15 But if serving the LORD seems undesirable
to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers
served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me
and my household, we will serve the LORD ."
