Joshua 10:16-26

NAS 16 Now these five kings had fled and hidden themselves in the cave at Makkedah. NIV 16 Now the five kings had fled and hidden in the cave at Makkedah. NAS 17 It was told Joshua, saying, "The five kings have been found hidden in the cave at Makkedah." NIV 17 When Joshua was told that the five kings had been found hiding in the cave at Makkedah, NAS 18 Joshua said, "Roll large stones against the mouth of the cave, and assign men by it to guard them, NIV 18 he said, "Roll large rocks up to the mouth of the cave, and post some men there to guard it. NAS 19 but do not stay there yourselves; pursue your enemies and attack them in the rear. Do not allow them to enter their cities, for the LORD your God has delivered them into your hand." NIV 19 But don't stop! Pursue your enemies, attack them from the rear and don't let them reach their cities, for the LORD your God has given them into your hand." NAS 20 It came about when Joshua and the sons of Israel had finished slaying them with a very great slaughter, until they were destroyed, and the survivors who remained of them had entered the fortified cities, NIV 20 So Joshua and the Israelites destroyed them completely--almost to a man--but the few who were left reached their fortified cities. NAS 21 that all the people returned to the camp to Joshua at Makkedah in peace. No one uttered a word against any of the sons of Israel. NIV 21 The whole army then returned safely to Joshua in the camp at Makkedah, and no one uttered a word against the Israelites. NAS 22 Then Joshua said, "Open the mouth of the cave and bring these five kings out to me from the cave." NIV 22 Joshua said, "Open the mouth of the cave and bring those five kings out to me." NAS 23 They did so, and brought these five kings out to him from the cave: the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon. NIV 23 So they brought the five kings out of the cave--the kings of Jerusalem, Hebron, Jarmuth, Lachish and Eglon. NAS 24 When they brought these kings out to Joshua, Joshua called for all the men of Israel, and said to the chiefs of the men of war who had gone with him, "Come near, put your feet on the necks of these kings." So they came near and put their feet on their necks. NIV 24 When they had brought these kings to Joshua, he summoned all the men of Israel and said to the army commanders who had come with him, "Come here and put your feet on the necks of these kings." So they came forward and placed their feet on their necks. NAS 25 Joshua then said to them, "Do not fear or be dismayed! Be strong and courageous, for thus the LORD will do to all your enemies with whom you fight." NIV 25 Joshua said to them, "Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous. This is what the LORD will do to all the enemies you are going to fight." NAS 26 So afterward Joshua struck them and put them to death, and he hanged them on five trees; and they hung on the trees until evening. NIV 26 Then Joshua struck and killed the kings and hung them on five trees, and they were left hanging on the trees until evening.
