1 H139 Now it happened when Adoni-Zedek H4428 king H3389 of Jerusalem H8085 heard H3588 how H3091 Joshua H3920 had taken H5857 Ai, H2763 and had utterly destroyed H6213 it; as he had done H3405 to Jericho H4428 and her king, H6213 so he had done H5857 to Ai H4428 and her king; H3427 and how the inhabitants H1391 of Gibeon H7999 had made peace H3478 with Israel, H7130 and were among them;
2 H3966 that they were very H3372 afraid, H1391 because Gibeon H1419 was a great H5892 city, H259 as one H4467 of the royal H5892 cities, H1419 and because it was greater H5857 than Ai, H582 and all its men H1368 were mighty.
3 H139 Therefore Adoni-Zedek H4428 king H3389 of Jerusalem H7971 sent H1944 to Hoham H4428 king H2275 of Hebron, H6502 to Piram H4428 king H3412 of Jarmuth, H3309 to Japhia H4428 king H3923 of Lachish, H1688 and to Debir H4428 king H5700 of Eglon, H559 saying,
4 H5927 "Come up H5826 to me, and help H5221 me, and let us strike H1391 Gibeon; H7999 for it has made peace H3091 with Joshua H1121 and with the children H3478 of Israel."
5 H2568 Therefore the five H4428 kings H567 of the Amorites, H4428 the king H3389 of Jerusalem, H4428 the king H2275 of Hebron, H4428 the king H3412 of Jarmuth, H4428 the king H3923 of Lachish, H4428 the king H5700 of Eglon, H622 gathered themselves together, H5927 and went up, H4264 they and all their armies, H2583 and encamped H1391 against Gibeon, H3898 and made war against it.
6 H582 The men H1391 of Gibeon H7971 sent H3091 to Joshua H4264 to the camp H1537 to Gilgal, H559 saying, H3027 "Don't H7503 abandon H5650 your servants! H5927 Come up H4120 to us quickly, H3467 and save H5826 us, and help H4428 us; for all the kings H567 of the Amorites H3427 that dwell H2022 in the hill country H6908 have gathered together against us."
7 H3091 So Joshua H5927 went up H1537 from Gilgal, H5971 he, and all the people H4421 of war H1368 with him, and all the mighty H2428 men of valor.
8 H3068 Yahweh H559 said H3091 to Joshua, H3372 "Don't fear H5414 them, for I have delivered H3027 them into your hands. H376 Not a man H5975 of them will stand H6440 before you."
9 H3091 Joshua H935 therefore came H6597 on them suddenly. H5927 He went up H1537 from Gilgal H3915 all night.
10 H3068 Yahweh H2000 confused H6440 them before H3478 Israel, H5221 and he killed H1419 them with a great H4347 slaughter H1391 at Gibeon, H7291 and chased H1870 them by the way H4608 of the ascent H1032 of Beth Horon, H5221 and struck H5825 them to Azekah H4719 and to Makkedah.
11 H5127 It happened, as they fled H6440 from before H3478 Israel, H4174 while they were at the descent H1032 of Beth Horon, H3068 that Yahweh H4174 cast down H1419 great H68 stones H8064 from the sky H5825 on them to Azekah, H4191 and they died. H7227 There were more H4191 who died H1259 from the hailstones H834 than who H1121 the children H3478 of Israel H2026 killed H2719 with the sword.
12 H3091 Then Joshua H1696 spoke H3068 to Yahweh H3117 in the day H3068 when Yahweh H5414 delivered up H567 the Amorites H6440 before H1121 the children H3478 of Israel; H559 and he said H5869 in the sight H3478 of Israel, H8121 "Sun, H1826 stand still H1391 on Gibeon! H3394 You, moon, H6010 stop in the valley H357 of Aijalon!"
13 H8121 The sun H1826 stood still, H3394 and the moon H5975 stayed, H1471 until the nation H5358 had avenged H341 themselves of their enemies. H1931 Isn't this H3789 written H5612 in the book H3477 of Jashar? H8121 The sun H5975 stayed H2677 in the midst H8064 of the sky, H213 and didn't hurry H935 to go down H8549 about a whole H3117 day.
14 H3117 There was no day H6440 like that before H310 it or after H3068 it, that Yahweh H8085 listened H6963 to the voice H376 of a man; H3068 for Yahweh H3898 fought H3478 for Israel.
16 H2568 These five H4428 kings H5127 fled, H2244 and hid H4631 themselves in the cave H4719 at Makkedah.
17 H3091 Joshua H5046 was told, H559 saying, H2568 "The five H4428 kings H4672 are found, H2244 hidden H4631 in the cave H4719 at Makkedah."
18 H3091 Joshua H559 said, H1556 "Roll H1419 large H68 stones H6310 to the mouth H4631 of the cave, H6485 and set H582 men H8104 by it to guard them;
19 H5975 but don't stay. H7291 Pursue H310 your H341 enemies, H2179 and strike them from the rear. H5414 Don't allow H935 them to enter H5892 into their cities; H3068 for Yahweh H430 your God H5414 has delivered H3027 them into your hand."
20 H3091 It happened, when Joshua H1121 and the children H3478 of Israel H3615 had finished H5221 killing H3966 them with a very H1419 great H4347 slaughter H8552 until they were consumed, H8300 and the remnant H8277 which remained H935 of them had entered H4013 into the fortified H5892 cities,
21 H5971 that all the people H7725 returned H4264 to the camp H3091 to Joshua H4719 at Makkedah H7965 in peace. H2782 None moved H3956 his tongue H376 against any H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel.
22 H3091 Then Joshua H559 said, H6605 "Open H6310 the mouth H4631 of the cave, H2568 and bring those five H4428 kings H3318 out H4631 of the cave to me."
23 H6213 They did H2568 so, and brought those five H4428 kings H3318 out H4631 of the cave H4428 to him: the king H3389 of Jerusalem, H4428 the king H2275 of Hebron, H4428 the king H3412 of Jarmuth, H4428 the king H3923 of Lachish, H4428 and the king H5700 of Eglon.
24 H4428 It happened, when they brought those kings H3318 out H3091 to Joshua, H3091 that Joshua H7121 called H376 for all the men H3478 of Israel, H559 and said H7101 to the chiefs H582 of the men H4421 of war H1980 who went H7126 with him, "Come near, H7760 put H7272 your feet H6677 on the necks H4428 of these kings." H7126 They came near, H7760 and put H7272 their feet H6677 on their necks.
25 H3091 Joshua H559 said H3372 to them, "Don't be afraid, H2865 nor be dismayed. H2388 Be strong H553 and courageous, H3068 for Yahweh H6213 will do H341 this to all your enemies H3898 against whom you fight."
26 H310 Afterward H3091 Joshua H5221 struck H4191 them, put them to death, H8518 and hanged H2568 them on five H6086 trees. H8518 They were hanging H6086 on the trees H6153 until the evening.
27 H6256 It happened at the time H935 of the going down H8121 of the sun, H3091 that Joshua H6680 commanded, H3381 and they took them down H6086 off the trees, H7993 and cast H4631 them into the cave H2244 in which they had hidden H7760 themselves, and laid H1419 great H68 stones H6310 on the mouth H4631 of the cave, H6106 which remain to this very H3117 day.
28 H3091 Joshua H3920 took H4719 Makkedah H3117 on that day, H5221 and struck H6310 it with the edge H2719 of the sword, H4428 with its king. H2763 He utterly destroyed H5315 them and all the souls H7604 who were in it. He left H8300 none remaining. H6213 He did H4428 to the king H4719 of Makkedah H6213 as he had done H4428 to the king H3405 of Jericho.
29 H3091 Joshua H5674 passed H4719 from Makkedah, H3478 and all Israel H3841 with him, to Libnah, H3898 and fought H3841 against Libnah.
30 H3068 Yahweh H5414 delivered H4428 it also, with its king, H3027 into the hand H3478 of Israel. H5221 He struck H6310 it with the edge H2719 of the sword, H5315 and all the souls H7604 who were in it. He left H8300 none remaining H6213 in it. He did H4428 to its king H6213 as he had done H4428 to the king H3405 of Jericho.
31 H3091 Joshua H5674 passed H3841 from Libnah, H3478 and all Israel H3923 with him, to Lachish, H2583 and encamped H3898 against it, and fought against it.
32 H3068 Yahweh H5414 delivered H3923 Lachish H3027 into the hand H3478 of Israel. H3920 He took H8145 it on the second H3117 day, H5221 and struck H6310 it with the edge H2719 of the sword, H5315 with all the souls H6213 who were in it, according to all that he had done H3841 to Libnah.
33 H2036 Then Horam H4428 king H1507 of Gezer H5927 came up H5826 to help H3923 Lachish; H3091 and Joshua H5221 struck H5971 him and his people, H7604 until he had left H8300 him none remaining.
34 H3091 Joshua H5674 passed H3923 from Lachish, H3478 and all Israel H5700 with him, to Eglon; H2583 and they encamped H3898 against it fought against it.
35 H3920 They took H3117 it on that day, H5221 and struck H6310 it with the edge H2719 of the sword. H2763 He utterly destroyed H5315 all the souls H3117 who were in it that day, H6213 according to all that he had done H3923 to Lachish.
36 H3091 Joshua H5927 went up H5700 from Eglon, H3478 and all Israel H2275 with him, to Hebron; H3898 and they fought against it.
37 H3920 They took H5221 it, and struck H6310 it with the edge H2719 of the sword, H4428 with its king H5892 and all its cities, H5315 and all the souls H7604 who were in it. He left H8300 none remaining, H6213 according to all that he had done H5700 to Eglon; H2763 but he utterly destroyed H5315 it, and all the souls who were in it.
38 H3091 Joshua H7725 returned, H3478 and all Israel H1688 with him, to Debir, H3898 and fought against it.
39 H3920 He took H4428 it, with its king H5892 and all its cities. H5221 They struck H6310 them with the edge H2719 of the sword, H2763 and utterly destroyed H5315 all the souls H7604 who were in it. He left H8300 none remaining. H6213 As he had done H2275 to Hebron, H6213 so he did H1688 to Debir, H4428 and to its king; H6213 as he had done H3841 also to Libnah, H4428 and to its king.
40 H3091 So Joshua H5221 struck H776 all the land, H776 the hill country, H5045 and the South, H8219 and the lowland, H794 and the slopes, H4428 and all their kings. H7604 He left H8300 none remaining, H2763 but he utterly destroyed H5397 all that breathed, H3068 as Yahweh, H430 the God H3478 of Israel, H6680 commanded.
41 H3091 Joshua H5221 struck H6947 them from Kadesh Barnea H5804 even to Gaza, H776 and all the country H1657 of Goshen, H1391 even to Gibeon.
42 H3091 Joshua H3920 took H4428 all these kings H776 and their land H259 at one H6471 time, H3068 because Yahweh, H430 the God H3478 of Israel, H3898 fought H3478 for Israel.
