29  After these things, Joshua son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, died at the age of a hundred and ten. 30  And they buried him in the land of his inheritance, at Timnath Serah[1] in the hill country of Ephraim, north of Mount Gaash. 31  Israel served the Lord throughout the lifetime of Joshua and of the elders who outlived him and who had experienced everything the Lord had done for Israel.

Joseph's Bones Buried at Shechem
