Joshua 8:1–35 (ESV)

1 And the LORD said to Joshua, “Do not fear and do not be dismayed. Take all the fighting men with you, and arise, go up to Ai. See, I have given into your hand the king of Ai, and his people, his city, and his land.

Joshua 8 can be divided into two parts:

  1. The battle and defeat of Ai (Joshua 8:1–29)

  2. The covenant renewal ceremony (Joshua 8:30–35)
