You must choose just whom you'll serve,
Whom you'll follow and adore.
Will you choose the gods who've failed?
Those that made you dreaded slaves?
Or the LORD who sets you free?
You must choose, and choose today.
Once you've chosen, you will serve,
So choose your master well.
Choose today--now!--whom you'll serve.
As for me? I'll serve the LORD.
If you are not willing to serve him, decide today whom you will serve, the gods your ancestors worshiped in Mesopotamia or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are now living. As for my family and me, we will serve the LORD.
--Joshua 24:15, Good News Bible
