\\INTRODUCTION TO JOSHUA 10\\

This chapter treats of the combination of five kings against the
Gibeonites, \\#Jos 10:1-5\\; and of the application of the Gibeonites
to Joshua, for assistance, in virtue of the league between them, which
was granted, \\#Jos 10:6-9\\; of the slaughter of the army by the kings
of Israel, and chiefly by hailstones from heaven, \\#Jos 10:10,11\\;
and of the standing still of the sun, and of the moon, while vengeance
was taken on them, \\#Jos 10:12-14\\; and of the five kings being hid
in a cave, and of the usage of them when taken, \\#Jos 10:15-27\\; and
of the taking of Makkedah, Libnah, Lachish, Eglon, Hebron, and Debir,
\\#Jos 10:28-39\\; which finished the conquest of the southern part of
the land, \\#Jos 10:40-43\\.
