Joshua 10

BBE 1 Now when it came to the ears of Adoni-zedek, king of Jerusalem, that Joshua had taken Ai, and had given it up to the curse (for as he had done to Jericho and its king, so he had done to Ai and its king); and that the people of Gibeon had made peace with Israel and were living among them; NIV 1 Now Adoni-Zedek king of Jerusalem heard that Joshua had taken Ai and totally destroyed it, doing to Ai and its king as he had done to Jericho and its king, and that the people of Gibeon had made a treaty of peace with Israel and had become their allies. BBE 2 He was in great fear, because Gibeon was a great town, like one of the king's towns, greater than Ai, and all the men in it were men of war. NIV 2 He and his people were very much alarmed at this, because Gibeon was an important city, like one of the royal cities; it was larger than Ai, and all its men were good fighters. BBE 3 So Adoni-zedek, king of Jerusalem, sent to Hoham, king of Hebron, and to Piram, king of Jarmuth, and to Japhia, king of Lachish, and to Debir, king of Eglon, saying, NIV 3 So Adoni-Zedek king of Jerusalem appealed to Hoham king of Hebron, Piram king of Jarmuth, Japhia king of Lachish and Debir king of Eglon. BBE 4 Come up to me and give me help, and let us make an attack on Gibeon: for they have made peace with Joshua and the children of Israel. NIV 4 “Come up and help me attack Gibeon,” he said, “because it has made peace with Joshua and the Israelites.” BBE 5 So the five kings of the Amorites, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon, were banded together, and went up with all their armies and took up their position before Gibeon and made war against it. NIV 5 Then the five kings of the Amorites—the kings of Jerusalem, Hebron, Jarmuth, Lachish and Eglon—joined forces. They moved up with all their troops and took up positions against Gibeon and attacked it. BBE 6 And the men of Gibeon sent to Joshua to the tent-circle at Gilgal, saying, Be not slow to send help to your servants; come up quickly to our support and keep us safe: for all the kings of the Amorites from the hill-country have come together against us. NIV 6 The Gibeonites then sent word to Joshua in the camp at Gilgal: “Do not abandon your servants. Come up to us quickly and save us! Help us, because all the Amorite kings from the hill country have joined forces against us.” BBE 7 So Joshua went up from Gilgal with all his army and all his men of war. NIV 7 So Joshua marched up from Gilgal with his entire army, including all the best fighting men. BBE 8 And the Lord said to Joshua, Have no fear of them, for I have given them into your hands; they will all give way before you. NIV 8 The LORD said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid of them; I have given them into your hand. Not one of them will be able to withstand you.” BBE 9 So Joshua, having come up from Gilgal all night, made a sudden attack on them. NIV 9 After an all-night march from Gilgal, Joshua took them by surprise. BBE 10 And the Lord made them full of fear before Israel, and they put great numbers of them to death at Gibeon, and went after them by the way going up to Beth-horon, driving them back to Azekah and Makkedah NIV 10 The LORD threw them into confusion before Israel, so Joshua and the Israelites defeated them completely at Gibeon. Israel pursued them along the road going up to Beth Horon and cut them down all the way to Azekah and Makkedah. BBE 11 And in their flight before Israel, on the way down from Beth-horon, the Lord sent down great stones from heaven on them all the way to Azekah, causing their death: those whose death was caused by the stones were more than those whom the children of Israel put to death with the sword. NIV 11 As they fled before Israel on the road down from Beth Horon to Azekah, the LORD hurled large hailstones down on them, and more of them died from the hail than were killed by the swords of the Israelites. BBE 12 It was on the day when the Lord gave up the Amorites into the hands of the children of Israel that Joshua said to the Lord, before the eyes of Israel, Sun, be at rest over Gibeon; and you, O moon, in the valley of Aijalon. NIV 12 On the day the LORD gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the LORD in the presence of Israel: “Sun, stand still over Gibeon, and you, moon, over the Valley of Aijalon.” BBE 13 And the sun was at rest and the moon kept its place till the nation had given punishment to their attackers. (Is it not recorded in the book of Jashar?) So the sun kept its place in the middle of the heavens, and was waiting, and did not go down, for the space of a day. NIV 13 So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. BBE 14 And there was no day like that, before it or after it, when the Lord gave ear to the voice of a man; for the Lord was fighting for Israel. NIV 14 There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the LORD listened to a human being. Surely the LORD was fighting for Israel! BBE 15 And Joshua, with all Israel, went back to the tent-circle at Gilgal. NIV 15 Then Joshua returned with all Israel to the camp at Gilgal. BBE 16 But these five kings went in flight secretly to a hole in the rock at Makkedah. NIV 16 Now the five kings had fled and hidden in the cave at Makkedah. BBE 17 And word was given to Joshua that the five kings had been taken in a hole in the rock at Makkedah. NIV 17 When Joshua was told that the five kings had been found hiding in the cave at Makkedah, BBE 18 And Joshua said, Let great stones be rolled against the mouth of the hole, and let men keep watch by it: NIV 18 he said, “Roll large rocks up to the mouth of the cave, and post some men there to guard it. BBE 19 But do you, without waiting, go after their army, attacking them from the back; do not let them get into their towns, for the Lord your God has given them into your hands. 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.” BBE 20 Now when Joshua and the children of Israel had come to the end of their war of complete destruction, and had put to death all but a small band who had got safely into the walled towns, NIV 20 So Joshua and the Israelites defeated them completely, but a few survivors managed to reach their fortified cities. BBE 21 All the people went back to Joshua to the tent-circle at Makkedah in peace: and no one said a word against the children 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. BBE 22 Then Joshua said, Take away the stones from the mouth of the hole in the rock, and make those five kings come out to me. NIV 22 Joshua said, “Open the mouth of the cave and bring those five kings out to me.” BBE 23 And they did so, and made those five kings come out of the hole to him, 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. BBE 24 And when they had made those kings come out to Joshua, Joshua sent for all the men of Israel, and said to the chiefs of the men of war who had gone with him, Come near and 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. BBE 25 And Joshua said to them, Have no fear and do not be troubled; be strong and take heart: for so will the Lord do to all against whom you make war. 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.” BBE 26 Then Joshua had them put to death, hanging them on five trees, where they were till evening. NIV 26 Then Joshua put the kings to death and exposed their bodies on five poles, and they were left hanging on the poles until evening. BBE 27 And when the sun went down, they were taken down from the trees, by Joshua's orders, and put into the hole where they had gone to be safe; and great stones were placed at the mouth of the hole, where they are to this day. NIV 27 At sunset Joshua gave the order and they took them down from the poles and threw them into the cave where they had been hiding. At the mouth of the cave they placed large rocks, which are there to this day. BBE 28 That day Joshua took Makkedah, and put it and its king to the sword; every soul in it he gave up to the curse without mercy: and he did to the king of Makkedah as he had done to the king of Jericho. NIV 28 That day Joshua took Makkedah. He put the city and its king to the sword and totally destroyed everyone in it. He left no survivors. And he did to the king of Makkedah as he had done to the king of Jericho. BBE 29 Then Joshua and all Israel with him went on from Makkedah and came to Libnah, and made an attack on it; NIV 29 Then Joshua and all Israel with him moved on from Makkedah to Libnah and attacked it. BBE 30 And again the Lord gave it and its king into the hands of Israel; and he put it and every person in it to the sword, till their destruction was complete; and he did to its king as he had done to the king of Jericho. NIV 30 The LORD also gave that city and its king into Israel’s hand. The city and everyone in it Joshua put to the sword. He left no survivors there. And he did to its king as he had done to the king of Jericho. BBE 31 Then Joshua and all Israel with him went on from Libnah to Lachish, and took up their position against it and made an attack on it, NIV 31 Then Joshua and all Israel with him moved on from Libnah to Lachish; he took up positions against it and attacked it. BBE 32 And the Lord gave Lachish into the hands of Israel, and on the second day he took it, putting it and every person in it to the sword without mercy, as he had done to Libnah. NIV 32 The LORD gave Lachish into Israel’s hands, and Joshua took it on the second day. The city and everyone in it he put to the sword, just as he had done to Libnah. BBE 33 Then Horam, king of Gezer, came up to the help of Lachish; and Joshua overcame him and his people, putting all of them to death. NIV 33 Meanwhile, Horam king of Gezer had come up to help Lachish, but Joshua defeated him and his army—until no survivors were left. BBE 34 And Joshua and all Israel with him went on from Lachish to Eglon: and they took up their position against it and made an attack on it; NIV 34 Then Joshua and all Israel with him moved on from Lachish to Eglon; they took up positions against it and attacked it. BBE 35 And that day they took it, putting it and every person in it to the sword, as he had done to Lachish. NIV 35 They captured it that same day and put it to the sword and totally destroyed everyone in it, just as they had done to Lachish. BBE 36 And Joshua and all Israel with him went up from Eglon to Hebron, and made an attack on it; NIV 36 Then Joshua and all Israel with him went up from Eglon to Hebron and attacked it. BBE 37 And took it, overcoming it and putting it and its king and its towns and every person in it to the sword: as he had done to Eglon, he put them all to death, and gave it up to the curse with every person in it. NIV 37 They took the city and put it to the sword, together with its king, its villages and everyone in it. They left no survivors. Just as at Eglon, they totally destroyed it and everyone in it. BBE 38 And Joshua and all Israel with him went on to make an attack on Debir; NIV 38 Then Joshua and all Israel with him turned around and attacked Debir. BBE 39 And he took it, with its king and all its towns: and he put them to the sword, giving every person in it to the curse; all were put to death: as he had done to Hebron, so he did to Debir and its king. NIV 39 They took the city, its king and its villages, and put them to the sword. Everyone in it they totally destroyed. They left no survivors. They did to Debir and its king as they had done to Libnah and its king and to Hebron. BBE 40 So Joshua overcame all the land, the hill-country and the South and the lowland and the mountain slopes, and all their kings; all were put to death: and every living thing he gave up to the curse, as the Lord, the God of Israel, had given him orders. NIV 40 So Joshua subdued the whole region, including the hill country, the Negev, the western foothills and the mountain slopes, together with all their kings. He left no survivors. He totally destroyed all who breathed, just as the LORD, the God of Israel, had commanded. BBE 41 Joshua overcame them from Kadesh-barnea to Gaza, and all the land of Goshen as far as Gibeon. NIV 41 Joshua subdued them from Kadesh Barnea to Gaza and from the whole region of Goshen to Gibeon. BBE 42 And all these kings and their land Joshua took at the same time, because the Lord, the God of Israel, was fighting for Israel. NIV 42 All these kings and their lands Joshua conquered in one campaign, because the LORD, the God of Israel, fought for Israel. BBE 43 Then Joshua and all Israel with him went back to their tents at Gilgal. NIV 43 Then Joshua returned with all Israel to the camp at Gilgal.
