Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem and called for the elders of Israel, for their heads, for their judges and for their officers; and they presented themselves before God. Bible see other translations

“and they presented themselves before God.” They seem not to be in front of the Tabernacle, because it was at Shiloh (Josh. 18:1). So they were before God in the sense that they were before the representatives of God, Joshua, and likely the priests.
