The people said to Joshua, “We will serve Yahweh our God and we will listen to his voice.” Bible see other translations

“We will serve Yahweh our God.” This is the third time that Israel said they would serve God (see commentary on Josh. 24:18).

“we will listen to his voice.” In this context, “listen” has what is sometimes called the pregnant sense, and means “obey.”
