1 Now, it happened that Adoni-Zedek king of Jerusalem, learned that Joshua had conquered Ai and put the town under the curse of destruction, treating Ai and its king as he had already treated Jericho and its king; and also that the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel and were living with them.
Gen 14:18 Heb 7:1 Josh 6:21 Josh 8:2 Josh 8:22-29 Josh 9:15-27 Josh 11:19-20
2 There was consternation at this, since Gibeon was as important a town as any of the royal towns themselves (it was larger than Ai), while all its citizens were fighting men.
Deut 11:25 Exod 15:14-16 Josh 2:24 1Sam 27:5 2Sam 12:26 Deut 28:10 Heb 10:27
3 Consequently, Adoni-Zedek king of Jerusalem sent word to Hoham king of Hebron, Piram king of Jarmuth, Japhia king of Lachish, and Debir king of Eglon,
2Chr 11:9 Mic 1:13 2Kgs 18:14 2Kgs 18:17 2Sam 2:11 Gen 23:2 Gen 37:14
4 'Join me up here and help me to conquer Gibeon, since it has made peace with Joshua and the Israelites.'
Josh 9:15 Josh 10:1 1Pet 4:4 2Tim 3:12 Acts 9:23-27 Acts 21:28 Isa 8:9-10
5 The five Amorite kings joined forces and went up there, that is, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish and the king of Eglon, they and all their armies; laying siege to Gibeon, they attacked it.
Gen 15:16 Isa 8:9-10 Josh 9:1-2 Josh 10:6 Num 13:29
6 The men of Gibeon sent word to Joshua in the camp at Gilgal, 'Do not desert your servants; come up here quickly to save us and help us, since all the Amorite kings living in the highlands have allied themselves against us.'
Josh 5:10 Josh 9:6 2Kgs 4:24 Deut 1:15 Isa 33:22 Josh 9:15 Josh 9:24-25
7 Joshua came up from Gilgal, he, all the fighting men and all the bravest of his army.
Josh 8:1 Isa 8:12 Isa 8:14
8 Yahweh said to Joshua, 'Do not be afraid of these people; I have put them at your mercy; not one of them will put up any resistance.'
Deut 3:2 Josh 11:6 Rom 8:31 Isa 41:10-15 Josh 1:5-9 Josh 8:1 Judg 4:14-15
9 Having marched from Gilgal throughout the night, Joshua caught them unawares.
1Sam 11:9-11 2Tim 2:3 2Tim 4:2 Eccl 9:10 Prov 22:29 Prov 24:11-12
10 Yahweh threw them into disorder at the sight of Israel, defeating them completely at Gibeon; furthermore, he pursued them by way of the Descent of Beth-Horon and harassed them as far as Azekah (and as far as Makkedah).
Josh 16:3 Josh 16:5 Isa 28:21 Josh 15:35 Judg 4:15 Ps 18:14 1Sam 7:10-12
11 And as they fled from Israel down the Descent of Beth-Horon, Yahweh hurled huge hailstones from heaven on them all the way to Azekah, and they died. More of them died under the hailstones than under the swords of the Israelites.
Isa 28:2 Exod 9:22-26 Isa 30:30 Ps 18:12-14 Rev 16:21 Ezek 13:11 Gen 19:24
12 Joshua then spoke to Yahweh, the day Yahweh delivered the Amorites to the Israelites. In the presence of Israel, Joshua said: Sun, stand still over Gibeon, and, moon, you too, over the Vale of Aijalon!
Hab 3:11 Isa 38:8 Isa 60:20 Deut 4:19 Deut 17:3 Isa 28:21 Job 9:7
13 And the sun stood still, and the moon halted, until the people had taken vengeance on their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of the Just? The sun stood still in the middle of the sky and delayed its setting for almost a whole day.
Isa 38:8 Hab 3:11 2Sam 1:18 Rev 21:23 Acts 2:20 Esth 8:13 Isa 24:23
14 There was never a day like that before or since, when Yahweh obeyed the voice of a man -- for Yahweh was fighting for Israel.
Josh 10:42 Deut 1:30 Isa 38:8 Josh 23:3 2Kgs 20:10-11 Exod 14:14 Luke 17:6
15 Joshua, and all Israel with him, then went back to the camp at Gilgal.
Josh 10:43 Josh 10:6
16 As regards the five kings, these had fled and hidden in the cave of Makkedah,
1Sam 13:6 1Sam 24:3 1Sam 24:8 Amos 9:2 Isa 2:10-12 Isa 2:19-22 Isa 24:21-22
17 and news of this was brought to Joshua. 'The five kings have been found hiding in the cave at Makkedah.'
18 Joshua said, 'Roll great stones over the mouth of the cave and post men there to keep guard.
Amos 5:19 Amos 9:1 Job 21:30 Josh 10:22 Judg 9:46-49 Matt 27:66
19 You yourselves, do not stay there doing nothing; pursue the enemy, cut off their line of retreat and do not let them enter their towns, for Yahweh your God has put them at your mercy.'
2Sam 17:13 2Sam 20:6 Isa 9:14-15 Jer 8:14 Jer 48:10 Josh 10:20 Ps 18:37-41
20 When Joshua and the Israelites had finished inflicting a very great defeat on them, to the point of destroying them, those who had escaped alive took refuge in their fortresses.
Josh 8:24 2Chr 13:17 2Sam 20:6 Deut 20:16 Jer 8:14 Josh 10:10
21 The people came back to Joshua's camp at Makkedah; they were all safe and sound, and no one dared to attempt anything against the Israelites.
Exod 11:7 Isa 54:17 Isa 57:4
22 Joshua then said, 'Clear the mouth of the cave and bring the five kings out to me.'
23 They did so, and brought the five kings out of the cave to take them to him: the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish and the king of Eglon.
Josh 10:1 Josh 10:3 Josh 10:5
24 When these kings had been brought out, Joshua assembled all the men of Israel and said to the chiefs of the warriors who had fought with him, 'Come forward and put your feet on the necks of these kings!' They came forward and put their feet on their necks.
Mal 4:3 Ps 110:1 Deut 33:29 Isa 26:5-6 Isa 60:11-12 Judg 8:20 Ps 2:8-12
25 'Be fearless and undaunted,' Joshua went on, 'be strong and stand firm, for this is how Yahweh will deal with all the enemies you fight.'
Josh 1:9 Deut 7:19 Deut 31:6-8 Eph 6:10 1Sam 17:37 2Cor 1:10 2Tim 4:17-18
26 With this, Joshua struck and killed them and had them hanged on five trees; they hung there till evening.
Josh 8:29 1Sam 15:33 2Sam 21:6 2Sam 21:9 Deut 21:22-23 Esth 2:23 Esth 7:9-10
27 At the hour of sunset, on Joshua's orders, they were taken down from the trees and thrown into the cave where they had been hiding. Great stones were laid over the mouth of the cave, and these are still there to this very day.
Josh 8:29 2Sam 18:17 Deut 21:22-23 Josh 4:9 Josh 7:26
28 The same day Joshua captured Makkedah, putting it and its king to the sword; he delivered them over to the curse of destruction, with every living creature there, and let no one escape, and he treated the king of Makkedah as he had treated the king of Jericho.
Josh 6:21 1Cor 15:25 Deut 7:2 Deut 7:16 Deut 20:16-17 Josh 8:2 Josh 10:30
29 Joshua, and all Israel with him, went on from Makkedah to Libnah and attacked it
Josh 21:13 Josh 15:42 2Kgs 8:22 2Kgs 19:8 Jer 52:1 Josh 6:21 Josh 8:2
30 and Yahweh put this, too, and its king at Israel's mercy; and Israel put every living creature there to the sword, and left none alive, and treated its king like the king of Jericho.
31 Joshua, and all Israel with him, went on from Libnah to Lachish and besieged it and attacked it.
Josh 10:3 2Chr 11:9 2Kgs 19:8 Isa 37:8 Josh 10:5 Josh 12:11 Josh 15:39
32 Yahweh put Lachish at Israel's mercy, and Israel took it on the second day and put it and every living creature in it to the sword, as they had treated Libnah.
33 Horam king of Gezer then marched up to help Lachish, but Joshua beat him and his people until not one was left alive.
Josh 16:10 Judg 1:29 Josh 16:3 1Chr 6:67 1Chr 20:4 1Kgs 9:15-17 Josh 12:12
34 Joshua, and all Israel with him, went on from Lachish to Eglon. They besieged it and attacked it.
Josh 10:3 Josh 12:12 Josh 15:39
35 The same day they took it and put it to the sword. That day he delivered over to the curse of destruction every living creature there, treating it as he had treated Lachish.
Job 19:10 Josh 10:37 Lev 26:44
36 Joshua, and all Israel with him, went on up from Eglon to Hebron. They attacked it,
Judg 1:10 Josh 15:13 Josh 14:13-14 Num 13:22 1Chr 12:23 1Chr 12:28 2Sam 5:1-5
37 took it and put it to the sword, with its king, its dependencies and every living creature in it. As he had treated Eglon, so here, he left no one alive. He delivered it over to the curse of destruction, with every living creature in it.
38 Joshua, and all Israel with him, then turned back on Debir and attacked it.
Josh 15:15 Josh 12:13 Josh 15:49 Josh 21:15 Judg 1:11-15
39 He took it and its king and all the places belonging to it; they put them to the sword, and every living creature there they delivered over to the curse of destruction. He left no one alive. As he had treated Hebron, as he had treated Libnah and its king, so he treated Debir and its king.
2Kgs 10:11 Deut 3:3 Josh 10:33 Josh 10:37 Josh 10:40 Josh 11:8 Obad 1:18
40 Thus Joshua subjugated the whole country: the highlands, the Negeb, the lowlands and watered foothills, and all their kings. He left not one survivor and put every living thing under the curse of destruction, as Yahweh, God of Israel, had commanded.
Deut 7:2-16 1Kgs 15:29 2Thess 1:7-9 Deut 1:7 Deut 7:24 Deut 20:16-17 Deut 26:16-17
41 Joshua conquered them from Kadesh-Barnea to Gaza, and the whole region of Goshen as far as Gibeon.
Josh 11:16 Josh 15:51 Deut 9:23 Gen 10:19 1Kgs 3:5 1Sam 6:17 Acts 8:26
42 All these kings and their territory Joshua captured in a single campaign, because Yahweh, God of Israel, fought for Israel.
Josh 10:14 Ps 46:7 Deut 20:4 Exod 14:14 Exod 14:25 Isa 8:9-10 Isa 43:4
43 And then Joshua, and all Israel with him, went back to the camp at Gilgal.
Josh 10:15 1Sam 11:14 Josh 4:19
