Achan takes of the accursed and devoted thing: God is angry with Israel, 1. Joshua sends three thousand men against Ai; they flee, and thirty-six are slain, 2-5. Joshua complains to God; who discovers the cause, and enjoins a lot, 6-15. Achan is found guilty: Joshua’s advice, and his confession, 16-21. He and his are stoned and burnt: the place named The valley of Achor, 22-26.
