After the death of Joshua, the Israelites inquired of the Lord, "Who will be the first to fight for us against the Canaanites?"
The Lord answered, "Judah is to go. I have handed the land over to him."
Judah said to his brother Simeon, "Come with me to my territory, and let us fight against the Canaanites. I will also go with you to your territory." So Simeon went with him.
When Judah attacked, the Lord handed the Canaanites and Perizzites over to them. They struck down 10,000 men in Bezek.
They found Adoni-bezek in Bezek, fought against him, and struck down the Canaanites and Perizzites.
