21 Joshua left some nations in the land when he died. I will no longer drive out those nations to make room for Israel. 22 I will use those nations to test Israel. I will see whether Israel will live the way I, the Lord, want them to. I will see whether they will be like their people of long ago. I will see whether they will follow my path.” 23 The Lord had let those nations remain in the land. He didn’t drive them out right away. He didn’t hand them over to Joshua.
