Judges 1:20-30 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
20 As Moses had promised, Hebron1 was given to Caleb, who drove from it the three sons of Anak.2 21 The Benjamites, however, failed3 to dislodge the Jebusites, who were living in Jerusalem;4 to this day the Jebusites live there with the Benjamites. 22 Now the house of Joseph5 attacked Bethel,6 and the LORD was with them. 23 When they sent men to spy out Bethel (formerly called Luz),7 24 the spies saw a man coming out of the city and they said to him, "Show us how to get into the city and we will see that you are treated well.8" 25 So he showed them, and they put the city to the sword but spared9 the man and his whole family. 26 He then went to the land of the Hittites,10 where he built a city and called it Luz,11 which is its name to this day. 27 But Manasseh did not12 drive out the people of Beth Shan or Taanach or Dor13 or Ibleam14 or Megiddo15 and their surrounding settlements, for the Canaanites16 were determined to live in that land. 28 When Israel became strong, they pressed the Canaanites into forced labor but never drove them out completely.17 29 Nor did Ephraim18 drive out the Canaanites living in Gezer,19 but the Canaanites continued to live there among them.20 30 Neither did Zebulun drive out the Canaanites living in Kitron or Nahalol, who remained among them; but they did subject them to forced labor.
