Joshua 10 - Versions
Joshua 10 Text (WEB)
  1. Now it happened when Adoni-Zedek king of Jerusalem heard how Joshua had taken Ai, and had utterly destroyed it; as he had done to Jericho and her king, so he had done to Ai and her king; and how the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel, and were among them;
  2. that they were very afraid, because Gibeon was a great city, as one of the royal cities, and because it was greater than Ai, and all its men were mighty.
  3. Therefore Adoni-Zedek king of Jerusalem sent to Hoham king of Hebron, to Piram king of Jarmuth, to Japhia king of Lachish, and to Debir king of Eglon, saying,
  4. "Come up to me, and help me, and let us strike Gibeon; for it has made peace with Joshua and with the children of Israel."
  5. Therefore the five kings of the Amorites, 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 armies, and encamped against Gibeon, and made war against it.
  6. The men of Gibeon sent to Joshua to the camp to Gilgal, saying, "Don't abandon your servants! Come up to us quickly, and save us, and help us; for all the kings of the Amorites that dwell in the hill country have gathered together against us."
  7. So Joshua went up from Gilgal, he, and all the people of war with him, and all the mighty men of valor.
  8. Yahweh said to Joshua, "Don't fear them, for I have delivered them into your hands. Not a man of them will stand before you."
  9. Joshua therefore came on them suddenly. He went up from Gilgal all night.
  10. Yahweh confused them before Israel, and he killed them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, and chased them by the way of the ascent of Beth Horon, and struck them to Azekah and to Makkedah.
  11. It happened, as they fled from before Israel, while they were at the descent of Beth Horon, that Yahweh cast down great stones from the sky on them to Azekah, and they died. There were more who died from the hailstones than who the children of Israel killed with the sword.
  12. Then Joshua spoke to Yahweh in the day when Yahweh delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel; and he said in the sight of Israel, "Sun, stand still on Gibeon! You, moon, stop in the valley of Aijalon!"
  13. The sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the nation had avenged themselves of their enemies. Isn't this written in the book of Jashar? The sun stayed in the midst of the sky, and didn't hurry to go down about a whole day.
  14. There was no day like that before it or after it, that Yahweh listened to the voice of a man; for Yahweh fought for Israel.
  15. Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to the camp to Gilgal.
  16. These five kings fled, and hid themselves in the cave at Makkedah.
  17. Joshua was told, saying, "The five kings are found, hidden in the cave at Makkedah."
  18. Joshua said, "Roll large stones to the mouth of the cave, and set men by it to guard them;
  19. but don't stay. Pursue your enemies, and them from the rear. Don't allow them to enter into their cities; for Yahweh your God has delivered them into your hand."
  20. It happened, when Joshua and the children of Israel had finished killing them with a very great slaughter until they were consumed, and the remnant which remained of them had entered into the fortified cities,
  21. that all the people returned to the camp to Joshua at Makkedah in peace. None moved his tongue against any of the children of Israel.
  22. Then Joshua said, "Open the mouth of the cave, and bring those five kings out of the cave to me."
  23. They did so, and brought those five kings out of the cave to him: the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon.
  24. It happened, when they brought those kings out to Joshua, that Joshua called for all the men of Israel, and said to the chiefs of the men of war who went with him, "Come near, put your feet on the necks of these kings." They came near, and put their feet on their necks.
  25. Joshua said to them, "Don't be afraid, nor be dismayed. Be strong and courageous, for Yahweh will do this to all your enemies against whom you fight."
  26. Afterward Joshua struck them, put them to death, and hanged them on five trees. They were hanging on the trees until the evening.
  27. It happened at the time of the going down of the sun, that Joshua commanded, and they took them down off the trees, and cast them into the cave in which they had hidden themselves, and laid great stones on the mouth of the cave, which remain to this very day.
  28. Joshua took Makkedah on that day, and struck it with the edge of the sword, with its king. He utterly destroyed them and all the souls who were in it. He left none remaining. He did to the king of Makkedah as he had done to the king of Jericho.
  29. Joshua passed from Makkedah, and all Israel with him, to Libnah, and fought against Libnah.
  30. Yahweh delivered it also, with its king, into the hand of Israel. He struck it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls who were in it. He left none remaining in it. He did to its king as he had done to the king of Jericho.
  31. Joshua passed from Libnah, and all Israel with him, to Lachish, and encamped against it, and fought against it.
  32. Yahweh delivered Lachish into the hand of Israel. He took it on the second day, and struck it with the edge of the sword, with all the souls who were in it, according to all that he had done to Libnah.
  33. Then Horam king of Gezer came up to help Lachish; and Joshua struck him and his people, until he had left him none remaining.
  34. Joshua passed from Lachish, and all Israel with him, to Eglon; and they encamped against it fought against it.
  35. They took it on that day, and struck it with the edge of the sword. He utterly destroyed all the souls who were in it that day, according to all that he had done to Lachish.
  36. Joshua went up from Eglon, and all Israel with him, to Hebron; and they fought against it.
  37. They took it, and struck it with the edge of the sword, with its king and all its cities, and all the souls who were in it. He left none remaining, according to all that he had done to Eglon; but he utterly destroyed it, and all the souls who were in it.
  38. Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to Debir, and fought against it.
  39. He took it, with its king and all its cities. They struck them with the edge of the sword, and utterly destroyed all the souls who were in it. He left none remaining. As he had done to Hebron, so he did to Debir, and to its king; as he had done also to Libnah, and to its king.
  40. So Joshua struck all the land, the hill country, and the South, and the lowland, and the slopes, and all their kings. He left none remaining, but he utterly destroyed all that breathed, as Yahweh, the God of Israel, commanded.
  41. Joshua struck them from Kadesh Barnea even to Gaza, and all the country of Goshen, even to Gibeon.
  42. Joshua took all these kings and their land at one time, because Yahweh, the God of Israel, fought for Israel.
  43. Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to the camp to Gilgal.
Joshua 10 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ויהי כשמע אדני־צדק מלך ירושלם כי־לכד יהושע את־העי ויחרימה כאשר עשה ליריחו ולמלכה כן־עשה לעי ולמלכה וכי השלימו ישבי גבעון את־ישראל ויהיו בקרבם׃
  2. וייראו מאד כי עיר גדולה גבעון כאחת ערי הממלכה וכי היא גדולה מן־העי וכל־אנשיה גברים׃
  3. וישלח אדני־צדק מלך ירושלם אל־הוהם מלך־חברון ואל־פראם מלך־ירמות ואל־יפיע מלך־לכיש ואל־דביר מלך־עגלון לאמר׃
  4. עלו־אלי ועזרני ונכה את־גבעון כי־השלימה את־יהושע ואת־בני ישראל׃
  5. ויאספו ויעלו חמשת מלכי האמרי מלך ירושלם מלך־חברון מלך־ירמות מלך־לכיש מלך־עגלון הם וכל־מחניהם ויחנו על־גבעון וילחמו עליה׃
  6. וישלחו אנשי גבעון אל־יהושע אל־המחנה הגלגלה לאמר אל־תרף ידיך מעבדיך עלה אלינו מהרה והושיעה לנו ועזרנו כי נקבצו אלינו כל־מלכי האמרי ישבי ההר׃
  7. ויעל יהושע מן־הגלגל הוא וכל־עם המלחמה עמו וכל גבורי החיל׃ ף
  8. ויאמר יהוה אל־יהושע אל־תירא מהם כי בידך נתתים לא־יעמד איש מהם בפניך׃
  9. ויבא אליהם יהושע פתאם כל־הלילה עלה מן־הגלגל׃
  10. ויהםם יהוה לפני ישראל ויכם מכה־גדולה בגבעון וירדפם דרך מעלה בית־חורן ויכם עד־עזקה ועד־מקדה׃
  11. ויהי בנסם מפני ישראל הם במורד בית־חורן ויהוה השליך עליהם אבנים גדלות מן־השמים עד־עזקה וימתו רבים אשר־מתו באבני הברד מאשר הרגו בני ישראל בחרב׃ ס
  12. אז ידבר יהושע ליהוה ביום תת יהוה את־האמרי לפני בני ישראל ויאמר לעיני ישראל שמש בגבעון דום וירח בעמק אילון׃
  13. וידם השמש וירח עמד עד־יקם גוי איביו הלא־היא כתובה על־ספר הישר ויעמד השמש בחצי השמים ולא־אץ לבוא כיום תמים׃
  14. ולא היה כיום ההוא לפניו ואחריו לשמע יהוה בקול איש כי יהוה נלחם לישראל׃ ף
  15. וישב יהושע וכל־ישראל עמו אל־המחנה הגלגלה׃
  16. וינסו חמשת המלכים האלה ויחבאו במערה במקדה׃
  17. ויגד ליהושע לאמר נמצאו חמשת המלכים נחבאים במערה במקדה׃
  18. ויאמר יהושע גלו אבנים גדלות אל־פי המערה והפקידו עליה אנשים לשמרם׃
  19. ואתם אל־תעמדו רדפו אחרי איביכם וזנבתם אותם אל־תתנום לבוא אל־עריהם כי נתנם יהוה אלהיכם בידכם׃
  20. ויהי ככלות יהושע ובני ישראל להכותם מכה גדולה־מאד עד־תםם והשרידים שרדו מהם ויבאו אל־ערי המבצר׃
  21. וישבו כל־העם אל־המחנה אל־יהושע מקדה בשלום לא־חרץ לבני ישראל לאיש את־לשנו׃
  22. ויאמר יהושע פתחו את־פי המערה והוציאו אלי את־חמשת המלכים האלה מן־המערה׃
  23. ויעשו כן ויציאו אליו את־חמשת המלכים האלה מן־המערה את מלך ירושלם את־מלך חברון את־מלך ירמות את־מלך לכיש את־מלך עגלון׃
  24. ויהי כהוציאם את־המלכים האלה אל־יהושע ויקרא יהושע אל־כל־איש ישראל ויאמר אל־קציני אנשי המלחמה ההלכוא אתו קרבו שימו את־רגליכם על־צוארי המלכים האלה ויקרבו וישימו את־רגליהם על־צואריהם׃
  25. ויאמר אליהם יהושע אל־תיראו ואל־תחתו חזקו ואמצו כי ככה יעשה יהוה לכל־איביכם אשר אתם נלחמים אותם׃
  26. ויכם יהושע אחרי־כן וימיתם ויתלם על חמשה עצים ויהיו תלוים על־העצים עד־הערב׃
  27. ויהי לעת בוא השמש צוה יהושע וירידום מעל העצים וישלכם אל־המערה אשר נחבאו־שם וישמו אבנים גדלות על־פי המערה עד־עצם היום הזה׃ ף
  28. ואת־מקדה לכד יהושע ביום ההוא ויכה לפי־חרב ואת־מלכה החרם אותם ואת־כל־הנפש אשר־בה לא השאיר שריד ויעש למלך מקדה כאשר עשה למלך יריחו׃
  29. ויעבר יהושע וכל־ישראל עמו ממקדה לבנה וילחם עם־לבנה׃
  30. ויתן יהוה גם־אותה ביד ישראל ואת־מלכה ויכה לפי־חרב ואת־כל־הנפש אשר־בה לא־השאיר בה שריד ויעש למלכה כאשר עשה למלך יריחו׃ ס
  31. ויעבר יהושע וכל־ישראל עמו מלבנה לכישה ויחן עליה וילחם בה׃
  32. ויתן יהוה את־לכיש ביד ישראל וילכדה ביום השני ויכה לפי־חרב ואת־כל־הנפש אשר־בה ככל אשר־עשה ללבנה׃ ף
  33. אז עלה הרם מלך גזר לעזר את־לכיש ויכהו יהושע ואת־עמו עד־בלתי השאיר־לו שריד׃
  34. ויעבר יהושע וכל־ישראל עמו מלכיש עגלנה ויחנו עליה וילחמו עליה׃
  35. וילכדוה ביום ההוא ויכוה לפי־חרב ואת כל־הנפש אשר־בה ביום ההוא החרים ככל אשר־עשה ללכיש׃ ף
  36. ויעל יהושע וכל־ישראל עמו מעגלונה חברונה וילחמו עליה׃
  37. וילכדוה ויכוה־לפי־חרב ואת־מלכה ואת־כל־עריה ואת־כל־הנפש אשר־בה לא־השאיר שריד ככל אשר־עשה לעגלון ויחרם אותה ואת־כל־הנפש אשר־בה׃ ס
  38. וישב יהושע וכל־ישראל עמו דברה וילחם עליה׃
  39. וילכדה ואת־מלכה ואת־כל־עריה ויכום לפי־חרב ויחרימו את־כל־נפש אשר־בה לא השאיר שריד כאשר עשה לחברון כן־עשה לדברה ולמלכה וכאשר עשה ללבנה ולמלכה׃
  40. ויכה יהושע את־כל־הארץ ההר והנגב והשפלה והאשדות ואת כל־מלכיהם לא השאיר שריד ואת כל־הנשמה החרים כאשר צוה יהוה אלהי ישראל׃
  41. ויכם יהושע מקדש ברנע ועד־עזה ואת כל־ארץ גשן ועד־גבעון׃
  42. ואת כל־המלכים האלה ואת־ארצם לכד יהושע פעם אחת כי יהוה אלהי ישראל נלחם לישראל׃
  43. וישב יהושע וכל־ישראל עמו אל־המחנה הגלגלה׃ ף
Joshua 10 Text (Greek)
  1. ως δε ηκουσεν αδωνιβεζεκ βασιλευς ιερουσαλημ οτι ελαβεν ιησους την γαι και εξωλεθρευσεν αυτην ον τροπον εποιησαν την ιεριχω και τον βασιλεα αυτης ουτως εποιησαν την γαι και τον βασιλεα αυτης και οτι αυτομολησαν οι κατοικουντες γαβαων προς ιησουν και προς
  2. και εφοβηθησαν εν αυτοις σφοδρα ηδει γαρ οτι μεγαλη πολις γαβαων ωσει μια των μητροπολεων και παντες οι ανδρες αυτης
  3. και απεστειλεν αδωνιβεζεκ βασιλευς ιερουσαλημ προς αιλαμ βασιλεα χεβρων και προς φιδων βασιλεα ιεριμουθ και προς ιεφθα βασιλεα λαχις και προς δαβιρ βασιλεα οδολλαμ
  4. δευτε αναβητε προς με και βοηθησατε μοι και εκπολεμησωμεν γαβαων αυτομολησαν γαρ προς ιησουν και προς τους υιους
  5. και ανεβησαν οι πεντε βασιλεις των ιεβουσαιων βασιλευς ιερουσαλημ και βασιλευς χεβρων και βασιλευς ιεριμουθ και βασιλευς λαχις και βασιλευς οδολλαμ αυτοι και πας ο λαος αυτων και περιεκαθισαν την γαβαων και εξεπολιορκουν
  6. και απεστειλαν οι κατοικουντες γαβαων προς ιησουν εις την παρεμβολην ισραηλ εις γαλγαλα λεγοντες μη εκλυσης τας χειρας σου απο των παιδων σου αναβηθι προς ημας το ταχος και εξελου ημας και βοηθησον ημιν οτι συνηγμενοι εισιν εφ' ημας παντες οι βασιλεις των αμορραιων οι κατοικουντες την
  7. και ανεβη ιησους εκ γαλγαλων αυτος και πας ο λαος ο πολεμιστης μετ' αυτου πας δυνατος εν
  8. και ειπεν κυριος προς ιησουν μη φοβηθης αυτους εις γαρ τας χειρας σου παραδεδωκα αυτους ουχ υπολειφθησεται εξ αυτων ουθεις ενωπιον
  9. και επιπαρεγενετο επ' αυτους ιησους αφνω ολην την νυκτα εισεπορευθη εκ
  10. και εξεστησεν αυτους κυριος απο προσωπου των υιων ισραηλ και συνετριψεν αυτους κυριος συντριψιν μεγαλην εν γαβαων και κατεδιωξαν αυτους οδον αναβασεως ωρωνιν και κατεκοπτον αυτους εως αζηκα και εως
  11. εν τω δε φευγειν αυτους απο προσωπου των υιων ισραηλ επι της καταβασεως ωρωνιν και κυριος επερριψεν αυτοις λιθους χαλαζης εκ του ουρανου εως αζηκα και εγενοντο πλειους οι αποθανοντες δια τους λιθους της χαλαζης η ους απεκτειναν οι υιοι ισραηλ μαχαιρα εν τω
  12. τοτε ελαλησεν ιησους προς κυριον η ημερα παρεδωκεν ο θεος τον αμορραιον υποχειριον ισραηλ ηνικα συνετριψεν αυτους εν γαβαων και συνετριβησαν απο προσωπου υιων ισραηλ και ειπεν ιησους στητω ο ηλιος κατα γαβαων και η σεληνη κατα φαραγγα
  13. και εστη ο ηλιος και η σεληνη εν στασει εως ημυνατο ο θεος τους εχθρους αυτων και εστη ο ηλιος κατα μεσον του ουρανου ου προεπορευετο εις δυσμας εις τελος ημερας
  14. και ουκ εγενετο ημερα τοιαυτη ουδε το προτερον ουδε το εσχατον ωστε επακουσαι θεον ανθρωπου οτι κυριος συνεπολεμησεν τω
  15. Greek:Joshua 10:15
  16. και εφυγον οι πεντε βασιλεις ουτοι και κατεκρυβησαν εις το σπηλαιον το εν
  17. και απηγγελη τω ιησου λεγοντες ευρηνται οι πεντε βασιλεις κεκρυμμενοι εν τω σπηλαιω τω εν
  18. και ειπεν ιησους κυλισατε λιθους επι το στομα του σπηλαιου και καταστησατε ανδρας φυλασσειν επ'
  19. υμεις δε μη εστηκατε καταδιωκοντες οπισω των εχθρων υμων και καταλαβετε την ουραγιαν αυτων και μη αφητε εισελθειν εις τας πολεις αυτων παρεδωκεν γαρ αυτους κυριος ο θεος ημων εις τας χειρας
  20. και εγενετο ως κατεπαυσεν ιησους και πας υιος ισραηλ κοπτοντες αυτους κοπην μεγαλην σφοδρα εως εις τελος και οι διασωζομενοι διεσωθησαν εις τας πολεις τας
  21. και απεστραφη πας ο λαος προς ιησουν εις μακηδα υγιεις και ουκ εγρυξεν ουθεις των υιων ισραηλ τη γλωσση
  22. και ειπεν ιησους ανοιξατε το σπηλαιον και εξαγαγετε τους πεντε βασιλεις τουτους εκ του
  23. και εξηγαγοσαν τους πεντε βασιλεις εκ του σπηλαιου τον βασιλεα ιερουσαλημ και τον βασιλεα χεβρων και τον βασιλεα ιεριμουθ και τον βασιλεα λαχις και τον βασιλεα
  24. και επει εξηγαγον αυτους προς ιησουν και συνεκαλεσεν ιησους παντα ισραηλ και τους εναρχομενους του πολεμου τους συμπορευομενους αυτω λεγων αυτοις προπορευεσθε και επιθετε τους ποδας υμων επι τους τραχηλους αυτων και προσελθοντες επεθηκαν τους ποδας αυτων επι τους τραχηλους
  25. και ειπεν προς αυτους ιησους μη φοβηθητε αυτους μηδε δειλιασητε ανδριζεσθε και ισχυετε οτι ουτως ποιησει κυριος πασι τοις εχθροις υμων ους υμεις καταπολεμειτε
  26. και απεκτεινεν αυτους ιησους και εκρεμασεν αυτους επι πεντε ξυλων και ησαν κρεμαμενοι επι των ξυλων εως
  27. και εγενηθη προς ηλιου δυσμας ενετειλατο ιησους και καθειλον αυτους απο των ξυλων και ερριψαν αυτους εις το σπηλαιον εις ο κατεφυγοσαν εκει και επεκυλισαν λιθους επι το σπηλαιον εως της σημερον
  28. και την μακηδα ελαβοσαν εν τη ημερα εκεινη και εφονευσαν αυτην εν στοματι ξιφους και εξωλεθρευσαν παν εμπνεον εν αυτη και ου κατελειφθη εν αυτη ουδεις διασεσωσμενος και διαπεφευγως και εποιησαν τω βασιλει μακηδα ον τροπον εποιησαν τω βασιλει
  29. και απηλθεν ιησους και πας ισραηλ μετ' αυτου εκ μακηδα εις λεβνα και επολιορκει
  30. και παρεδωκεν αυτην κυριος εις χειρας ισραηλ και ελαβον αυτην και τον βασιλεα αυτης και εφονευσαν αυτην εν στοματι ξιφους και παν εμπνεον εν αυτη και ου κατελειφθη εν αυτη ουδε εις διασεσωσμενος και διαπεφευγως και εποιησαν τω βασιλει αυτης ον τροπον εποιησαν τω βασιλει
  31. και απηλθεν ιησους και πας ισραηλ μετ' αυτου εκ λεβνα εις λαχις και περιεκαθισεν αυτην και επολιορκει
  32. και παρεδωκεν κυριος την λαχις εις τας χειρας ισραηλ και ελαβεν αυτην εν τη ημερα τη δευτερα και εφονευσαν αυτην εν στοματι ξιφους και εξωλεθρευσαν αυτην ον τροπον εποιησαν την
  33. τοτε ανεβη αιλαμ βασιλευς γαζερ βοηθησων τη λαχις και επαταξεν αυτον ιησους εν στοματι ξιφους και τον λαον αυτου εως του μη καταλειφθηναι αυτων σεσωσμενον και
  34. και απηλθεν ιησους και πας ισραηλ μετ' αυτου εκ λαχις εις οδολλαμ και περιεκαθισεν αυτην και επολιορκησεν
  35. και παρεδωκεν αυτην κυριος εν χειρι ισραηλ και ελαβεν αυτην εν τη ημερα εκεινη και εφονευσεν αυτην εν στοματι ξιφους και παν εμπνεον εν αυτη εφονευσαν ον τροπον εποιησαν τη
  36. και απηλθεν ιησους και πας ισραηλ μετ' αυτου εις χεβρων και περιεκαθισεν
  37. και επαταξεν αυτην εν στοματι ξιφους και παν εμπνεον οσα ην εν αυτη ουκ ην διασεσωσμενος ον τροπον εποιησαν την οδολλαμ εξωλεθρευσαν αυτην και οσα ην εν
  38. και απεστρεψεν ιησους και πας ισραηλ εις δαβιρ και περικαθισαντες
  39. ελαβον αυτην και τον βασιλεα αυτης και τας κωμας αυτης και επαταξαν αυτην εν στοματι ξιφους και εξωλεθρευσαν αυτην και παν εμπνεον εν αυτη και ου κατελιπον αυτη ουδενα διασεσωσμενον ον τροπον εποιησαν την χεβρων και τω βασιλει αυτης ουτως εποιησαν τη δαβιρ και τω βασιλει
  40. και επαταξεν ιησους πασαν την γην της ορεινης και την ναγεβ και την πεδινην και την ασηδωθ και τους βασιλεις αυτης ου κατελιπον αυτων σεσωσμενον και παν εμπνεον ζωης εξωλεθρευσεν ον τροπον ενετειλατο κυριος ο θεος
  41. απο καδης βαρνη εως γαζης πασαν την γοσομ εως της
  42. και παντας τους βασιλεις αυτων και την γην αυτων επαταξεν ιησους εις απαξ οτι κυριος ο θεος ισραηλ συνεπολεμει τω
  43. Greek:Joshua 10:43
Joshua 10 Text (Latin)
  1. Quæ cum audisset Adonisedec rex Jerusalem, quod scilicet cepisset Josue Hai, et subvertisset eam (sicut enim fecerat Jericho et regi ejus, sic fecit Hai, et regi illius), et quod transfugissent Gabaonitæ ad Israël, et essent fœderati eorum,
  2. timuit valde. Urbs enim magna erat Gabaon, et una civitatum regalium, et major oppido Hai, omnesque bellatores ejus fortissimi.
  3. Misit ergo Adonisedec rex Jerusalem ad Oham regem Hebron, et ad Pharam regem Jerimoth, ad Japhia quoque regem Lachis, et ad Dabir regem Eglon, dicens :
  4. Ad me ascendite, et ferte præsidium, ut expugnemus Gabaon, quare transfugerit ad Josue, et ad filios Israël.
  5. Congregati igitur ascenderunt quinque reges Amorrhæorum : rex Jerusalem, rex Hebron, rex Jerimoth, rex Lachis, rex Eglon, simul cum exercitibus suis, et castrametati sunt circa Gabaon, oppugnantes eam.
  6. Habitatores autem Gabaon urbis obsessæ miserunt ad Josue, qui tunc morabatur in castris apud Galgalam, et dixerunt ei : Ne retrahas manus tuas ab auxilio servorum tuorum : ascende cito, et libera nos, ferque præsidium : convenerunt enim adversum nos omnes reges Amorrhæorum, qui habitant in montanis.
  7. Ascenditque Josue de Galgalis, et omnis exercitus bellatorum cum eo, viri fortissimi.
  8. Dixitque Dominus ad Josue : Ne timeas eos : in manus enim tuas tradidi illos : nullus ex eis tibi resistere poterit.
  9. Irruit itaque Josue super eos repente, tota nocte ascendens de Galgalis.
  10. Et conturbavit eos Dominus a facie Israël : contrivitque plaga magna in Gabaon, ac persecutus est eos per viam ascensus Bethoron, et percussit usque Azeca et Maceda.
  11. Cumque fugerent filios Israël, et essent in descensu Bethoron, Dominus misit super eos lapides magnos de cælo usque ad Azeca : et mortui sunt multo plures lapidibus grandinis, quam quos gladio percusserant filii Israël.
  12. Tunc locutus est Josue Domino, in die qua tradidit Amorrhæum in conspectu filiorum Israël, dixitque coram eis : Sol, contra Gabaon ne movearis, et luna contra vallem Ajalon.
  13. Steteruntque sol et luna, donec ulcisceretur se gens de inimicis suis. Nonne scriptum est hoc in libro justorum ? Stetit itaque sol in medio cæli, et non festinavit occumbere spatio unius diei.
  14. Nam fuit antea nec postea tam longa dies, obediente Domino voci hominis, et pugnante pro Israël.
  15. Reversusque est Josue cum omni Israël in castra Galgalæ.
  16. Fugerant enim quinque reges et se absconderant in spelunca urbis Maceda.
  17. Nuntiatumque est Josue quod inventi essent quinque reges latentes in spelunca urbis Maceda.
  18. Qui præcepit sociis, et ait : Volvite saxa ingentia ad os speluncæ, et ponite viros industrios, qui clausos custodiant :
  19. vos autem nolite stare, sed persequimini hostes, et extremos quosque fugientium cædite : nec dimittatis eos urbium suarum intrare præsidia, quos tradidit Dominus Deus in manus vestras.
  20. Cæsis ergo adversariis plaga magna, et usque ad internecionem pene consumptis, hi qui Israël effugere potuerunt, ingressi sunt civitates munitas.
  21. Reversusque est omnis exercitus ad Josue in Maceda, ubi tunc erant castra, sani et integro numero : nullusque contra filios Israël mutire ausus est.
  22. Præcepitque Josue, dicens : Aperite os speluncæ, et producite ad me quinque reges, qui in ea latitant.
  23. Feceruntque ministri ut sibi fuerat imperatum : et eduxerunt ad eum quinque reges de spelunca, regem Jerusalem, regem Hebron, regem Jerimoth, regem Lachis, regem Eglon.
  24. Cumque educti essent ad eum, vocavit omnes viros Israël, et ait ad principes exercitus qui secum erant : Ite, et ponite pedes super colla regum istorum. Qui cum perrexissent, et subjectorum colla pedibus calcarent,
  25. rursum ait ad eos : Nolite timere, nec paveatis : confortamini, et estote robusti : sic enim faciet Dominus cunctis hostibus vestris, adversum quos dimicatis.
  26. Percussitque Josue, et interfecit eos, atque suspendit super quinque stipites : fueruntque suspensi usque ad vesperum.
  27. Cumque occumberet sol, præcepit sociis ut deponerent eos de patibulis. Qui depositos projecerunt in speluncam, in qua latuerant, et posuerunt super os ejus saxa ingentia, quæ permanent usque in præsens.
  28. Eodem quoque die, Macedam cepit Josue, et percussit eam in ore gladii, regemque illius interfecit, et omnes habitatores ejus : non dimisit in ea saltem parvas reliquias. Fecitque regi Maceda, sicut fecerat regi Jericho.
  29. Transivit autem cum omni Israël de Maceda in Lebna, et pugnabat contra eam :
  30. quam tradidit Dominus cum rege suo in manus Israël : percusseruntque urbem in ore gladii, et omnes habitatores ejus : non dimiserunt in ea ullas reliquias. Feceruntque regi Lebna, sicut fecerant regi Jericho.
  31. De Lebna transivit in Lachis cum omni Israël : et exercitu per gyrum disposito, oppugnabat eam.
  32. Tradiditque Dominus Lachis in manus Israël, et cepit eam die altero, atque percussit in ore gladii, omnemque animam quæ fuerat in ea, sicut fecerat Lebna.
  33. Eo tempore ascendit Horam rex Gazer, ut auxiliaretur Lachis : quem percussit Josue cum omni populo ejus usque ad internecionem.
  34. Transivitque de Lachis in Eglon, et circumdedit,
  35. atque expugnavit eam eadem die : percussitque in ore gladii omnes animas quæ erant in ea, juxta omnia quæ fecerat Lachis.
  36. Ascendit quoque cum omni Israël de Eglon in Hebron, et pugnavit contra eam :
  37. cepit eam, et percussit in ore gladii, regem quoque ejus, et omnia oppida regionis illius, universasque animas quæ in ea fuerant commoratæ : non reliquit in ea ullas reliquias : sicut fecerat Eglon, sic fecit et Hebron, cuncta quæ in ea reperit consumens gladio.
  38. Inde reversus in Dabir,
  39. cepit eam atque vastavit : regem quoque ejus atque omnia per circuitum oppida percussit in ore gladii : non dimisit in ea ullas reliquias : sicut fecerat Hebron et Lebna et regibus earum, sic fecit Dabir et regi illius.
  40. Percussit itaque Josue omnem terram montanam et meridianam atque campestrem, et Asedoth, cum regibus suis : non dimisit in ea ullas reliquias, sed omne quod spirare poterat interfecit, sicut præceperat ei Dominus Deus Israël,
  41. a Cadesbarne usque Gazam. Omnem terram Gosen usque Gabaon,
  42. universosque reges, et regiones eorum uno impetu cepit atque vastavit : Dominus enim Deus Israël pugnavit pro eo.
  43. Reversusque est cum omni Israël ad locum castrorum in Galgala.
Joshua 10 Text (KJV)
  1. Now it came to pass, when Adoni-zedek king of Jerusalem had heard how Joshua had taken Ai, and had utterly destroyed it; as he had done to Jericho and her king, so he had done to Ai and her king; and how the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel, and were among them;
  2. That they feared greatly, because Gibeon was a great city, as one of the royal cities, and because it was greater than Ai, and all the men thereof were mighty.
  3. Wherefore Adoni-zedek king of Jerusalem sent unto Hoham king of Hebron, and unto Piram king of Jarmuth, and unto Japhia king of Lachish, and unto Debir king of Eglon, saying,
  4. Come up unto me, and help me, that we may smite Gibeon: for it hath made peace with Joshua and with the children of Israel.
  5. Therefore the five kings of the Amorites, 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 hosts, and encamped before Gibeon, and made war against it.
  6. And the men of Gibeon sent unto Joshua to the camp to Gilgal, saying, Slack not thy hand from thy servants; come up to us quickly, and save us, and help us: for all the kings of the Amorites that dwell in the mountains are gathered together against us.
  7. So Joshua ascended from Gilgal, he, and all the people of war with him, and all the mighty men of valour.
  8. And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee.
  9. Joshua therefore came unto them suddenly, and went up from Gilgal all night.
  10. And the LORD discomfited them before Israel, and slew them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, and chased them along the way that goeth up to Beth-horon, and smote them to Azekah, and unto Makkedah.
  11. And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Beth-horon, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.
  12. Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.
  13. And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.
  14. And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel.
  15. And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, unto the camp to Gilgal.
  16. But these five kings fled, and hid themselves in a cave at Makkedah.
  17. And it was told Joshua, saying, The five kings are found hid in a cave at Makkedah.
  18. And Joshua said, Roll great stones upon the mouth of the cave, and set men by it for to keep them:
  19. And stay ye not, but pursue after your enemies, and smite the hindmost of them; suffer them not to enter into their cities: for the LORD your God hath delivered them into your hand.
  20. And it came to pass, when Joshua and the children of Israel had made an end of slaying them with a very great slaughter, till they were consumed, that the rest which remained of them entered into fenced cities.
  21. And all the people returned to the camp to Joshua at Makkedah in peace: none moved his tongue against any of the children of Israel.
  22. Then said Joshua, Open the mouth of the cave, and bring out those five kings unto me out of the cave.
  23. And they did so, and brought forth those five kings unto him out of the cave, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon.
  24. And it came to pass, when they brought out those kings unto Joshua, that Joshua called for all the men of Israel, and said unto the captains of the men of war which went with him, Come near, put your feet upon the necks of these kings. And they came near, and put their feet upon the necks of them.
  25. And Joshua said unto them, Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage: for thus shall the LORD do to all your enemies against whom ye fight.
  26. And afterward Joshua smote them, and slew them, and hanged them on five trees: and they were hanging upon the trees until the evening.
  27. And it came to pass at the time of the going down of the sun, that Joshua commanded, and they took them down off the trees, and cast them into the cave wherein they had been hid, and laid great stones in the cave's mouth, which remain until this very day.
  28. And that day Joshua took Makkedah, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof he utterly destroyed, them, and all the souls that were therein; he let none remain: and he did to the king of Makkedah as he did unto the king of Jericho.
  29. Then Joshua passed from Makkedah, and all Israel with him, unto Libnah, and fought against Libnah:
  30. And the LORD delivered it also, and the king thereof, into the hand of Israel; and he smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that were therein; he let none remain in it; but did unto the king thereof as he did unto the king of Jericho.
  31. And Joshua passed from Libnah, and all Israel with him, unto Lachish, and encamped against it, and fought against it:
  32. And the LORD delivered Lachish into the hand of Israel, which took it on the second day, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that were therein, according to all that he had done to Libnah.
  33. Then Horam king of Gezer came up to help Lachish; and Joshua smote him and his people, until he had left him none remaining.
  34. And from Lachish Joshua passed unto Eglon, and all Israel with him; and they encamped against it, and fought against it:
  35. And they took it on that day, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that were therein he utterly destroyed that day, according to all that he had done to Lachish.
  36. And Joshua went up from Eglon, and all Israel with him, unto Hebron; and they fought against it:
  37. And they took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof, and all the souls that were therein; he left none remaining, according to all that he had done to Eglon; but destroyed it utterly, and all the souls that were therein.
  38. And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to Debir; and fought against it:
  39. And he took it, and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof; and they smote them with the edge of the sword, and utterly destroyed all the souls that were therein; he left none remaining: as he had done to Hebron, so he did to Debir, and to the king thereof; as he had done also to Libnah, and to her king.
  40. So Joshua smote all the country of the hills, and of the south, and of the vale, and of the springs, and all their kings: he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the LORD God of Israel commanded.
  41. And Joshua smote them from Kadesh-barnea even unto Gaza, and all the country of Goshen, even unto Gibeon.
  42. And all these kings and their land did Joshua take at one time, because the LORD God of Israel fought for Israel.
  43. And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, unto the camp to Gilgal.
