Joshua 9:15-20

YLT(i) 15 and Joshua maketh with them peace, and maketh with them a covenant, to keep them alive; and swear to them do the princes of the company. 16 And it cometh to pass, at the end of three days after that they have made with them a covenant, that they hear that they are their neighbours—that in their midst they are dwelling. 17 And the sons of Israel journey and come in unto their cities on the third day—and their cities are Gibeon, and Chephirah, and Beeroth, and Kirjath-Jearim— 18 and the sons of Israel have not smitten them, for sworn to them have the princes of the company by Jehovah God of Israel, and all the company murmur against the princes. 19 And all the princes say unto all the company, `We—we have sworn to them by Jehovah, God of Israel; and now, we are not able to come against them; 20 this we do to them, and have kept them alive, and wrath is not upon us, because of the oath which we have sworn to them.'
