Israel has sinned, and also they have transgressed my covenant that I commanded them. And also they have taken of the devoted things. And also they have stolen. And also they have lied. And also they have put it among their possessions. Bible see other translations

“and also they have...and also they have...and also they have.” This is the figure of speech anaphora (the same beginnings), and the force of the figure is to emphasize each individual point. Every part of Achan’s transgression was important to God.

[See figure of speech “anaphora.”]
