International Children’s Bible
24 So their children went into the land and took over.
The Canaanites lived there.
But you defeated them for our ancestors.
You handed over to them the Canaanites, their kings and the people of the land.
Our ancestors could do what they wanted with them.
25 Our ancestors captured strong, walled cities and fertile land.
They took over houses full of good things.
They took over wells that were already dug.
They took vineyards, olive trees and many fruit trees.
They ate until they were full and became fat.
They enjoyed your great goodness.
26 “But they were disobedient and turned against you.
They ignored your teachings.
Your prophets warned them to come back to you.
But they killed those prophets.
And they spoke against you.
