View In My Bible
25 So he showed them, and they put the city to the sword but spared1 the man and his whole family. 26 He then went to the land of the Hittites,2 where he built a city and called it Luz,3 which is its name to this day. 27 But Manasseh did not4 drive out the people of Beth Shan or Taanach or Dor5 or Ibleam6 or Megiddo7 and their surrounding settlements, for the Canaanites8 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.9 29 Nor did Ephraim10 drive out the Canaanites living in Gezer,11 but the Canaanites continued to live there among them.12 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. 31 Nor did Asher13 drive out those living in Acco or Sidon14 or Ahlab or Aczib15 or Helbah or Aphek16 or Rehob,17 32 and because of this the people of Asher lived among the Canaanite inhabitants of the land. 33 Neither did Naphtali drive out those living in Beth Shemesh18 or Beth Anath19; but the Naphtalites too lived among the Canaanite inhabitants of the land, and those living in Beth Shemesh and Beth Anath became forced laborers for them. 34 The Amorites20 confined the Danites21 to the hill country, not allowing them to come down into the plain.22 35 And the Amorites were determined also to hold out in Mount Heres,23 Aijalon24 and Shaalbim,25 but when the power of the house of Joseph increased, they too were pressed into forced labor.
