And it was, when Adoni-zedek king of Jerusalem heard that Joshua had captured Ai, and had doomed it, as◦ he had done to Jericho and her king, so he had done to Ai and her king; and that they who dwelt··in Gibeon had made··peace with◦ Israel, and were among them;
And the five kings of the Amorite, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, the king of Eglon, gathered· themselves ·together and went up, they◦ and all their camps, and encamped against Gibeon, and fought against it.
And the men◦ of Gibeon sent unto▵ Joshua, to▵ the camp to Gilgal, saying, Slack not thy hands from upon thy servants; come··up to▵ us in haste and save us and help us; for all the kings of the Amorite that dwell in the mountain are come··together against▵ us.
And it was, when they fled from before Israel, they were in the descent of Beth-choron, and Jehovah cast upon them great stones from the heavens until Azekah, and they died; there were many more who died with the stones of the hail, than they whom the sons of Israel killed with the sword.
Then spoke Joshua to Jehovah, in the day Jehovah put◦ the Amorite before the sons of Israel, and he said before the eyes of the sons of Israel, Sun, be··still in Gibeon; and moon in the valley of Ajalon!
And the sun kept··still and the moon stood, until the nation had avenged itself of its enemies. Is it◦ not written in the Book of Jashar? And the sun stood halfway in the heavens, neither did it hurry to go down as it were an entire day.*
And it was, as Joshua and the sons of Israel had completed smiting them with a very great smiting until they were entirely consumed, that the survivors who survived of them◦ came into▵ their fortified cities.
And it was, when they brought··out those kings unto▵ Joshua, that Joshua called unto▵ every man◦ of Israel, and said unto▵ the captains of the men◦ of war that went◦ with him, Come··near, set your feet on the necks of these kings; and they came··near and set their feet on their necks.
And it was, at the time of the setting* of the sun, that Joshua commanded, and they took· them ·down from the trees, and cast them down into▵ the cave in which◦ they had hidden··themselves, and they set great stones upon the mouth of the cave, unto this same day.
And Joshua captured Makkedah on that◦ day, and smote it with the mouth of the sword, and her king; and he doomed them and every soul that was therein; he left no◦ survivor: and he did to the king of Makkedah as◦ he had done to the king of Jericho.
And Jehovah gave it also and the king thereof into the hand of Israel; and he smote it with the mouth of the sword, and every soul who was therein; he left in it no◦ survivor; and he did unto the king thereof as◦ he had done unto the king of Jericho.
And Jehovah gave Lachish into the hand of Israel, and he captured it on the second day, and smote it with the mouth of the sword and every soul that was therein; according to all that he had done to Libnah.
and he captured it, and smote it with the mouth of the sword, and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof, and every soul that was therein; he left no◦ survivor; according to all that he had done to Eglon; and he doomed it and every soul that was therein.
And he captured it and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof; and he smote them with the mouth of the sword; and he doomed every soul who was therein; he left no◦ survivor; as◦ he had done to Hebron, so he did to Debir, and to the king thereof; and as◦ he had done to Libnah and her king.
And Joshua smote all the land, the mountain, and the south, and the lowland, and the watercourses, and all their kings; he left not a survivor, and all who had breath he doomed, as◦ Jehovah the God of Israel commanded.
