John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And the people said unto Joshua,.... A third time, that as by the mouth of two or three witnesses everything is confirmed, so by three testimonies of the same persons:

the Lord our God will we serve; as they had before declared, and to which they add:

and his voice will we obey; or his word, as the Targum, not only his word of command, but his essential Word, the Son of God.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Joshua 24:24 And the people said unto Joshua, The LORD our God will we serve, and his voice will we obey.

Ver. 24. The Lord our God will we serve.] They bind themselves again to keep touch with God by an unalterable resolution. Vows rightly made and renewed are of singular use to keep the heart within the bounds of obedience, and to make men constant, firm, and peremptory in well doing.

Peter Pett's Commentary on the Bible

‘And the people said to Joshua, “YHWH our God we will serve and his voice we will obey.” ’

This was their third response, making the response complete. All would recognise that three specifically signifies completeness. (This threeness was not accidental, it was deliberate). They thereby acknowledged YHWH as God alone, and their responsibility to obey Him fully.
