Joshua 6:26

26 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, “Cursed be the man before the Lord who riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho. He shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 And Joshua charged them with an oath at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before Jehovah, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: with the loss of his first-born shall he lay the foundation thereof, and with the loss of his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.

Joshua 6:26X

26 Then Joshua laid this oath on them, Cursed is the man before the Lord who rises up and rebuilds this city, Jericho. With the loss of his firstborn shall he lay its foundation, and with the loss of his youngest son shall he set up its gates.

Joshua 6:26X

26 At that time Joshua made this decree:

“Anyone who starts to rebuild this city of Jericho will be cursed before the Lord.

Laying its foundations will cost them their oldest child.

Setting up its gates will cost them their youngest child.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 Y’hoshua then made the people take this oath: “A curse before Adonai on anyone who rises up and rebuilds this city of Yericho: he will lay its foundation with the loss of his firstborn son and set up its gates with the loss of his youngest son.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 After Jericho was destroyed, Joshua warned the people, “Someday a man will rebuild Jericho, but the Lord will put a curse on him, and the man’s oldest son will die when he starts to build the town wall. And by the time he finishes the wall and puts gates in it, all his children will be dead.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 And Joshua swore at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before Jehovah who shall rise up and build this city Jericho! In his first-born shall he lay its foundation, and in his youngest son shall he set up its gates.

Joshua 6:26X

26 Cursed be the man before the Lord, that shall raise up and build the city of Jericho. In his firstborn may he lay the foundation thereof, and in the last of his children set up its gates.

Joshua 6:26X

26 At that time Joshua made this important promise. He said,

“Whoever rebuilds Jericho
    will be in danger from the Lord.
When he lays the foundation,
    he will lose his oldest son.
When he sets up the gates,
    he will lose his youngest son.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 Joshua laid an oath on them at that time, saying, “Cursed before the Lord be the man who rises up and rebuilds this city, Jericho.

“At the cost of his firstborn shall he
    lay its foundation,
and at the cost of his youngest son
    shall he set up its gates.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 Joshua laid an oath on them at that time, saying, “Cursed before the Lord be the man who rises up and rebuilds this city, Jericho.

“At the cost of his firstborn shall he
    lay its foundation,
and at the cost of his youngest son
    shall he set up its gates.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 Then Joshua ·made [or caused them to take] this oath:

“Anyone who tries to rebuild this city of Jericho
    will be cursed ·by [or before] the Lord.
The one who lays the foundation of this city
    will lose his ·oldest [firstborn] son,
and the one who sets up the gates
    will lose his youngest son [1 Kin. 16:34].”

Joshua 6:26X

26 ¶ And Joshua swore at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the Lord, that riseth up, and buildeth the city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his eldest son, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.

Joshua 6:26X

26 At that time Joshua pronounced this curse:

“The Lord will curse
    whoever comes to rebuild the city of Jericho.
        It will cost him his firstborn son
            to lay the foundation.
        It will cost him his youngest son
            to set up the city doors.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 At this time Joshua issued a solemn warning: “Anyone who tries to rebuild the city of Jericho will be under the Lord's curse.

Whoever lays the foundation will lose his oldest son;
Whoever builds the gates will lose his youngest.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 At that time Joshua imposed this curse:

The man who undertakes
the rebuilding of this city, Jericho,
is cursed before the Lord.
He will lay its foundation
at the cost of his firstborn;
he will set up its gates
at the cost of his youngest.

Joshua 6:26X

26 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the LORD that rises up and builds this city Jericho. He shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.

Joshua 6:26X

26 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the Lord, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.

Joshua 6:26X

26 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the Lord, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.

Joshua 6:26X

26 And Joshua swore at that time, saying, “Cursed is anyone before Yahweh who gets up and builds Jericho, this city. At the cost of his firstborn he will lay its foundation, and at the cost of his youngest he will set up its gates.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 Then Joshua declared a terrible curse upon anyone who might rebuild Jericho, warning that when the foundation was laid, the builder’s oldest son would die, and when the gates were set up, his youngest son would die.

Joshua 6:26X

26 Joshua swore a solemn oath at that time:

Cursed before God is the man
    who sets out to rebuild this city Jericho.
He’ll pay for the foundation with his firstborn son,
    he’ll pay for the gates with his youngest son.

Joshua 6:26X

26 At that time Joshua pronounced this curse:

Yahweh will curse
    whoever comes to rebuild the city of Jericho.
        It will cost him his firstborn son
            to lay the foundation.
        It will cost him his youngest son
            to set up the city doors.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 Then Joshua made them take an oath at that time, saying, “Cursed before the Lord is the man who rises up and builds this city Jericho; with the loss of his firstborn he shall lay its foundation, and with the loss of his youngest son he shall set up its gates.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 Then Joshua made this oath:

“Anyone who tries to rebuild this city of Jericho
    will be cursed by the Lord.
The one who lays the foundation of this city
    will lose his oldest son,
and the one who sets up the gates
    will lose his youngest son.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 At that time Joshua made this solemn declaration: “The man who attempts to rebuild this city of Jericho will stand condemned before the Lord. He will lose his firstborn son when he lays its foundations and his youngest son when he erects its gates!”

Joshua 6:26X

26 At that time Joshua took an oath and called down a curse. He said, “May the man who tries to rebuild this city of Jericho be under the Lord’s curse.

“If he lays its foundations,
    it will cost the life of his oldest son.
If he sets up its gates,
    it will cost the life of his youngest son.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 At that time Joshua pronounced this solemn oath: “Cursed before the Lord is the one who undertakes to rebuild this city, Jericho:

“At the cost of his firstborn son
    he will lay its foundations;
at the cost of his youngest
    he will set up its gates.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 At that time Joshua pronounced this solemn oath: ‘Cursed before the Lord is the one who undertakes to rebuild this city, Jericho:

‘At the cost of his firstborn son
    he will lay its foundations;
at the cost of his youngest
    he will set up its gates.’

Joshua 6:26X

26 Then Joshua charged them at that time, saying, “Cursed be the man before the Lord who rises up and builds this city Jericho; he shall lay its foundation with his firstborn, and with his youngest he shall set up its gates.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 Then Joshua made them promise at that time, saying, “May the Lord destroy the man who gets up and builds this city of Jericho. With the loss of his first-born he will begin to build it. With the loss of his youngest son he will set up its gates.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 At that time Joshua invoked this curse:

“May the curse of the Lord fall on anyone
    who tries to rebuild the town of Jericho.
At the cost of his firstborn son,
    he will lay its foundation.
At the cost of his youngest son,
    he will set up its gates.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 Joshua then pronounced this oath, saying,

“Cursed before the Lord be anyone who tries
    to build this city—this Jericho!
At the cost of his firstborn he shall lay its foundation,
    and at the cost of his youngest he shall set up its gates!”

Joshua 6:26X

26 Joshua then pronounced this oath, saying,

‘Cursed before the Lord be anyone who tries
    to build this city—this Jericho!
At the cost of his firstborn he shall lay its foundation,
    and at the cost of his youngest he shall set up its gates!’

Joshua 6:26X

26 Joshua then pronounced this oath, saying,

‘Cursed before the Lord be anyone who tries
    to build this city—this Jericho!
At the cost of his firstborn he shall lay its foundation,
    and at the cost of his youngest he shall set up its gates!’

Joshua 6:26X

26 Joshua then pronounced this oath, saying,

“Cursed before the Lord be anyone who tries
    to build this city—this Jericho!
At the cost of his firstborn he shall lay its foundation,
    and at the cost of his youngest he shall set up its gates!”

Joshua 6:26X

26 And Yehoshua made them take this shevu’ah, saying, Arur (cursed) be the ish before Hashem, that riseth up and rebuildeth this Ir Yericho; he shall lay the foundation thereof with his bechor, and with his tza’ir (youngest son) shall he set up the delatot (gates) thereof [See fulfillment 1Kgs 16:34].

Yehoshua 6:26X

26 Joshua laid an oath upon them at that time, saying, “Cursed before the Lord be the man that rises up and rebuilds this city, Jericho.

At the cost of his first-born shall he
    lay its foundation,
and at the cost of his youngest son
    shall he set up its gates.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 Joshua laid an oath upon them at that time, saying, “Cursed before the Lord be the man that rises up and rebuilds this city, Jericho.

At the cost of his first-born shall he
    lay its foundation,
and at the cost of his youngest son
    shall he set up its gates.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 When the city lay in smoke and ashes, Joshua pronounced a curse.

Joshua: May the Eternal curse anyone who ever rebuilds this city, this Jericho! If he lays new foundations, it will be over the grave of his firstborn; if he raises new gates, it will be to contain the corpse of his youngest!

Joshua 6:26X

26 Joshua commanded them with an oath at that time, saying, “Cursed is the man before Yahweh, who rises up and builds this city Jericho. With the loss of his firstborn he will lay its foundation, and with the loss of his youngest son he will set up its gates.”

Joshua 6:26X

26 In that time Joshua prayed heartily, and said, Cursed before the Lord be the man, that raiseth up and buildeth (again) the city of Jericho! Lay he the foundaments thereof in his first engendered son, and put he the gates thereof in the last of his free children. (And at that time Joshua heartily prayed, and said, Cursed be the man before the Lord, who raiseth up and buildeth again this city of Jericho! May he lay its foundations at the cost of the life of his first-born son, and may he put up its gates at the cost of the life of his last child.)

Joshua 6:26X

26 And Joshua adjureth [them] at that time, saying, `Cursed [is] the man before Jehovah who raiseth up and hath built this city, [even] Jericho; in his first-born he doth lay its foundation, and in his youngest he doth set up its doors;'
