16 So Joshua rose early in the morning and brought Israel near tribe by tribe, and the tribe of Judah was taken. 17 And he brought near the clans of Judah, and the clan of the (A)Zerahites was taken. And he brought near the clan of the Zerahites man by man, and Zabdi was taken. 18 And he brought near his household man by man, and Achan the son of Carmi, son of Zabdi, son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, was taken. 19 Then Joshua said to Achan, “My son, (B)give glory to the Lord God of Israel and (C)give praise[a] to him. And (D)tell me now what you have done; do not hide it from me.” 20 And Achan answered Joshua, “Truly (E)I have sinned against the Lord God of Israel, and this is what I did: 21 when I saw among the spoil a beautiful cloak from Shinar, and 200 shekels of silver, and a bar of gold weighing 50 shekels,[b] then I coveted them and took them. And see, they are hidden in the earth inside my tent, with the silver underneath.”
