: Book Of Josue 7:21-26

21 For I saw among the spoils a scarlet garment exceeding good, and two hundred sides of silver, and a golden rule of fifty sides: and I coveted them, and I took them away, and hid them in the ground is the midst of my tent, and the silver I covered with the earth that I dug up. 22 Josue therefore sent ministers: who running to his tent, found all hidden in the same place, together with the silver. 23 And taking them away out of the tent, they brought them to Josue, and to all the children of Israel, and threw them down before the Lord. 24 Then Josue and all Israel with him took Achan the son of Zare, and the silver and the garments, and the golden rule, his sons also and his daughters, his oxen and asses and sheep, the tent also, and all the goods: and brought them to the valley of Achor: 25 Where Josue said: Because thou hast troubled us, the Lord trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him: and all things that were his, were consumed with fire.

24 "His sons"... Probably conscious to, or accomplices of, the crime of their father.

26 And they gathered together upon him a great heap of stones, which remaineth until this present day. And the wrath of the Lord was turned away from them. And the name of that place was called the Valley of Achor, until this day.

26 "Achor"... That is, trouble.
