Parallel Verses
New International Version
We are now in your hands. Do to us whatever seems good and right to you."

King James Bible

Darby Bible Translation
And now behold, we are in thy hand: as it is good and right in thine eyes to do to us, do.

World English Bible
Now, behold, we are in your hand. Do to us as it seems good and right to you to do."

Young's Literal Translation
and now, lo, we are in thy hand, as it is good, and as it is right in thine eyes to do to us -- do.'

Joshua 9:25 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

We are in thine hand - Entirely in thy power.

As it seemeth good and right unto thee - do - Whatever justice and mercy dictate to thee to do to us, that perform. They expect justice, because they deceived the Israelites; but they expect mercy also, because they were driven to use this expedient for fear of losing their lives. The appeal to Joshua is full of delicacy and cogent argument.

"My Son, for this thou must diligently make thy endeavour, that in every place and outward action or occupation thou mayest be free within, and have power over thyself; and that all things be under thee, not thou under them; that thou be master and ruler of thy actions, not a slave or hireling, but rather a free and true Hebrew, entering into the lot and the liberty of the children of God, who stand above the present and look upon the eternal, who with the left eye behold things transitory, and with
