Achan's Sin

Joshua 8:1 - Joshua 8:35

Israel was sore afraid. They'd run from Ai's men.
But God said Joshua, don't fear. Go fight Ai again.

Let Israel know, sin does not pay. When Achan sinned you lost.
Now Achan's dead. The sin is stopped. Consider what it cost.

When you go back to Ai, have some soldiers go at night.
Put them behind the city while the others charge to fight.

When Ai's soldiers come back out, all sure that they will win.
The men behind the city will slay the folks within.

This time God said I'll let you keep, the treasure of Ai.
The cities goods save for yourselves, and none of you will die.

So Joshua did as God had said, next day before the heat.
When Ai chased all Israel ran, pretending they were beat.

Well that's at least what Ai thought as the sun began to shine.
While these men ran, the big army was sneaking up behind.

They took the town and burned it down. When Ai saw the scene,
Their city was defeated and they were caught between.

That day all Israel learned, keep the law of the Lord.
Obey God and he fights for you, or perish by the sword.

Then Joshua built an altar, to offer sacrifice.
Upon the stones, he wrote the law to teach them what was right.

And to make sure they would not forget, all that Moses taught,
Joshua read the entire law, that Moses and God wrought.


Ahab Dies

2 Kings 1:1-1:18

Ahaziah was king of Samaria. He fell in a house that he had.
He sent messengers to ask if he would die. You see he got hurt really bad.

But he didn't ask of Israel's God. He asked of an idol instead.
So God told Elijah to tell the kings men, for sure, the king will be dead.

When the messengers returned with bad news to the king, the king asked, who told you this?
A hairy man in leather clothes. The king said, I know who that is.

It's Elijah the Tishbite, the prophet of God. He's mad because I don't believe.
Take fifty soldiers. Go fetch the old man. You heard what I said. Now leave.

So the captain with fifty soldiers, went out to search for one man.
They found old Elijah high on a hill. Come down here as fast as you can.

Come down. The king has commanded. You hairy old prophet on high.
If I be a prophet Elijah replied, let fire come down, and all fifty one shall die.

Well fire came down from heaven. It consumed all fifty one men.
Ahaziah was told the terrible news. He sent fifty one more again.

The same thing happened to this second battalion. You'd expect by now they would learn.
If the king sends more soldiers what make them think the third battalion won't burn?

But the king sent a third captain with fifty. This time he wasn't so brazen.
He and his men came up to the hill and bowed down like a shriveled up raisin.

Have mercy Elijah. Oh prophet of God. We believe and we beg you to come.
Of course if you feel as you sit on that hill, the odds are just fifty to one...

We know you are stronger. Your God's arm is longer. We haven't a chance against Him.
Have mercy we plea on our bended knee, our humble cup's filled to the brim.

God said to Elijah, go down with these men. They'll certainly do you no harm.
Tell Ahaziah he surely will die. You might say, he just "Bought The Farm."
