Book 06    Joshua
001:001 Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came
        to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun,
        Moses' minister, saying,
001:002 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this
        Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do
        give to them, even to the children of Israel.
001:003 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that
        have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.
001:004 From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great
        river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and
        unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be
        your coast.
001:005 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the
        days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee:
        I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
001:006 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt
        thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto
        their fathers to give them.
001:007 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest
        observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant
        commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the
        left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.
001:008 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but
        thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest
        observe to do according to all that is written therein: for
        then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt
        have good success.
001:009 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be
        not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is
        with thee whithersoever thou goest.
001:010 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying,
001:011 Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare
        you victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this
        Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the LORD your God
        giveth you to possess it.
001:012 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the
        tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying,
001:013 Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD
        commanded you, saying, The LORD your God hath given you rest,
        and hath given you this land.
001:014 Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall remain in
        the land which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye
        shall pass before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of
        valour, and help them;
001:015 Until the LORD have given your brethren rest, as he hath given
        you, and they also have possessed the land which the LORD your
        God giveth them: then ye shall return unto the land of your
        possession, and enjoy it, which Moses the LORD's servant gave
        you on this side Jordan toward the sunrising.
001:016 And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us
        we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go.
001:017 According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we
        hearken unto thee: only the LORD thy God be with thee, as he
        was with Moses.
001:018 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and
        will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest
        him, he shall be put to death: only be strong and of a good
        courage.
002:001 And Joshua the son of Nun sent out of Shittim two men to spy
        secretly, saying, Go view the land, even Jericho. And they
        went, and came into an harlot's house, named Rahab, and lodged
        there.
002:002 And it was told the king of Jericho, saying, Behold, there
        came men in hither to night of the children of Israel to
        search out the country.
002:003 And the king of Jericho sent unto Rahab, saying, Bring forth
        the men that are come to thee, which are entered into thine
        house: for they be come to search out all the country.
002:004 And the woman took the two men, and hid them, and said thus,
        There came men unto me, but I wist not whence they were:
002:005 And it came to pass about the time of shutting of the gate,
        when it was dark, that the men went out: whither the men went
        I wot not: pursue after them quickly; for ye shall overtake
        them.
002:006 But she had brought them up to the roof of the house, and hid
        them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in order upon
        the roof.
002:007 And the men pursued after them the way to Jordan unto the
        fords: and as soon as they which pursued after them were gone
        out, they shut the gate.
002:008 And before they were laid down, she came up unto them upon the
        roof;
002:009 And she said unto the men, I know that the LORD hath given you
        the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all
        the inhabitants of the land faint because of you.
002:010 For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red
        sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto
        the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side
        Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed.
002:011 And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt,
        neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because
        of you: for the LORD your God, he is God in heaven above, and
        in earth beneath.
002:012 Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the LORD, since I
        have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shew kindness unto
        my father's house, and give me a true token:
002:013 And that ye will save alive my father, and my mother, and my
        brethren, and my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver
        our lives from death.
002:014 And the men answered her, Our life for yours, if ye utter not
        this our business. And it shall be, when the LORD hath given
        us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with thee.
002:015 Then she let them down by a cord through the window: for her
        house was upon the town wall, and she dwelt upon the wall.
002:016 And she said unto them, Get you to the mountain, lest the
        pursuers meet you; and hide yourselves there three days, until
        the pursuers be returned: and afterward may ye go your way.
002:017 And the men said unto her, We will be blameless of this thine
        oath which thou hast made us swear.
002:018 Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line
        of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down
        by: and thou shalt bring thy father, and thy mother, and thy
        brethren, and all thy father's household, home unto thee.
002:019 And it shall be, that whosoever shall go out of the doors of
        thy house into the street, his blood shall be upon his head,
        and we will be guiltless: and whosoever shall be with thee in
        the house, his blood shall be on our head, if any hand be upon
        him.
002:020 And if thou utter this our business, then we will be quit of
        thine oath which thou hast made us to swear.
002:021 And she said, According unto your words, so be it. And she
        sent them away, and they departed: and she bound the scarlet
        line in the window.
002:022 And they went, and came unto the mountain, and abode there
        three days, until the pursuers were returned: and the pursuers
        sought them throughout all the way, but found them not.
002:023 So the two men returned, and descended from the mountain, and
        passed over, and came to Joshua the son of Nun, and told him
        all things that befell them:
002:024 And they said unto Joshua, Truly the LORD hath delivered into
        our hands all the land; for even all the inhabitants of the
        country do faint because of us.
003:001 And Joshua rose early in the morning; and they removed from
        Shittim, and came to Jordan, he and all the children of
        Israel, and lodged there before they passed over.
003:002 And it came to pass after three days, that the officers went
        through the host;
003:003 And they commanded the people, saying, When ye see the ark of
        the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests the Levites
        bearing it, then ye shall remove from your place, and go after
        it.
003:004 Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two
        thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that ye may
        know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed this
        way heretofore.
003:005 And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for to
        morrow the LORD will do wonders among you.
003:006 And Joshua spake unto the priests, saying, Take up the ark of
        the covenant, and pass over before the people. And they took
        up the ark of the covenant, and went before the people.
003:007 And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to
        magnify thee in the sight of all Israel, that they may know
        that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee.
003:008 And thou shalt command the priests that bear the ark of the
        covenant, saying, When ye are come to the brink of the water
        of Jordan, ye shall stand still in Jordan.
003:009 And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, Come hither, and
        hear the words of the LORD your God.
003:010 And Joshua said, Hereby ye shall know that the living God is
        among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before
        you the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the
        Perizzites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the
        Jebusites.
003:011 Behold, the ark of the covenant of the LORD of all the earth
        passeth over before you into Jordan.
003:012 Now therefore take you twelve men out of the tribes of Israel,
        out of every tribe a man.
003:013 And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of
        the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the LORD of all the
        earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of
        Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come down from
        above; and they shall stand upon an heap.
003:014 And it came to pass, when the people removed from their tents,
        to pass over Jordan, and the priests bearing the ark of the
        covenant before the people;
003:015 And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the
        feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim
        of the water, (for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the
        time of harvest,)
003:016 That the waters which came down from above stood and rose up
        upon an heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside
        Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain,
        even the salt sea, failed, and were cut off: and the people
        passed over right against Jericho.
003:017 And the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD
        stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the
        Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people
        were passed clean over Jordan.
004:001 And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed
        over Jordan, that the LORD spake unto Joshua, saying,
004:002 Take you twelve men out of the people, out of every tribe a
        man,
004:003 And command ye them, saying, Take you hence out of the midst
        of Jordan, out of the place where the priests' feet stood
        firm, twelve stones, and ye shall carry them over with you,
        and leave them in the lodging place, where ye shall lodge this
        night.
004:004 Then Joshua called the twelve men, whom he had prepared of the
        children of Israel, out of every tribe a man:
004:005 And Joshua said unto them, Pass over before the ark of the
        LORD your God into the midst of Jordan, and take you up every
        man of you a stone upon his shoulder, according unto the
        number of the tribes of the children of Israel:
004:006 That this may be a sign among you, that when your children ask
        their fathers in time to come, saying, What mean ye by these
        stones?
004:007 Then ye shall answer them, That the waters of Jordan were cut
        off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it passed
        over Jordan, the waters of Jordan were cut off: and these
        stones shall be for a memorial unto the children of Israel for
        ever.
004:008 And the children of Israel did so as Joshua commanded, and
        took up twelve stones out of the midst of Jordan, as the LORD
        spake unto Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of
        the children of Israel, and carried them over with them unto
        the place where they lodged, and laid them down there.
004:009 And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of Jordan, in the
        place where the feet of the priests which bare the ark of the
        covenant stood: and they are there unto this day.
004:010 For the priests which bare the ark stood in the midst of
        Jordan, until everything was finished that the LORD commanded
        Joshua to speak unto the people, according to all that Moses
        commanded Joshua: and the people hasted and passed over.
004:011 And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed
        over, that the ark of the LORD passed over, and the priests,
        in the presence of the people.
004:012 And the children of Reuben, and the children of Gad, and half
        the tribe of Manasseh, passed over armed before the children
        of Israel, as Moses spake unto them:
004:013 About forty thousand prepared for war passed over before the
        LORD unto battle, to the plains of Jericho.
004:014 On that day the LORD magnified Joshua in the sight of all
        Israel; and they feared him, as they feared Moses, all the
        days of his life.
004:015 And the LORD spake unto Joshua, saying,
004:016 Command the priests that bear the ark of the testimony, that
        they come up out of Jordan.
004:017 Joshua therefore commanded the priests, saying, Come ye up out
        of Jordan.
004:018 And it came to pass, when the priests that bare the ark of the
        covenant of the LORD were come up out of the midst of Jordan,
        and the soles of the priests' feet were lifted up unto the dry
        land, that the waters of Jordan returned unto their place, and
        flowed over all his banks, as they did before.
004:019 And the people came up out of Jordan on the tenth day of the
        first month, and encamped in Gilgal, in the east border of
        Jericho.
004:020 And those twelve stones, which they took out of Jordan, did
        Joshua pitch in Gilgal.
004:021 And he spake unto the children of Israel, saying, When your
        children shall ask their fathers in time to come, saying, What
        mean these stones?
004:022 Then ye shall let your children know, saying, Israel came over
        this Jordan on dry land.
004:023 For the LORD your God dried up the waters of Jordan from
        before you, until ye were passed over, as the LORD your God
        did to the Red sea, which he dried up from before us, until we
        were gone over:
004:024 That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the
        LORD, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the LORD your God
        for ever.
005:001 And it came to pass, when all the kings of the Amorites, which
        were on the side of Jordan westward, and all the kings of the
        Canaanites, which were by the sea, heard that the LORD had
        dried up the waters of Jordan from before the children of
        Israel, until we were passed over, that their heart melted,
        neither was there spirit in them any more, because of the
        children of Israel.
005:002 At that time the LORD said unto Joshua, Make thee sharp
        knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second
        time.
005:003 And Joshua made him sharp knives, and circumcised the children
        of Israel at the hill of the foreskins.
005:004 And this is the cause why Joshua did circumcise: All the
        people that came out of Egypt, that were males, even all the
        men of war, died in the wilderness by the way, after they came
        out of Egypt.
005:005 Now all the people that came out were circumcised: but all the
        people that were born in the wilderness by the way as they
        came forth out of Egypt, them they had not circumcised.
005:006 For the children of Israel walked forty years in the
        wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which
        came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the
        voice of the LORD: unto whom the LORD sware that he would not
        shew them the land, which the LORD sware unto their fathers
        that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and
        honey.
005:007 And their children, whom he raised up in their stead, them
        Joshua circumcised: for they were uncircumcised, because they
        had not circumcised them by the way.
005:008 And it came to pass, when they had done circumcising all the
        people, that they abode in their places in the camp, till they
        were whole.
005:009 And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the
        reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the
        place is called Gilgal unto this day.
005:010 And the children of Israel encamped in Gilgal, and kept the
        passover on the fourteenth day of the month at even in the
        plains of Jericho.
005:011 And they did eat of the old corn of the land on the morrow
        after the passover, unleavened cakes, and parched corn in the
        selfsame day.
005:012 And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the
        old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna
        any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan
        that year.
005:013 And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he
        lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man
        over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua
        went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our
        adversaries?
005:014 And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I
        now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did
        worship, and said unto him, What saith my Lord unto his
        servant?
005:015 And the captain of the LORD's host said unto Joshua, Loose thy
        shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is
        holy. And Joshua did so.
006:001 Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of
        Israel: none went out, and none came in.
006:002 And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine
        hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of
        valour.
006:003 And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round
        about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days.
006:004 And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of
        rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city
        seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets.
006:005 And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast
        with the ram's horn, and when ye hear the sound of the
        trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and
        the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people
        shall ascend up every man straight before him.
006:006 And Joshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said unto
        them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests
        bear seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD.
006:007 And he said unto the people, Pass on, and compass the city,
        and let him that is armed pass on before the ark of the LORD.
006:008 And it came to pass, when Joshua had spoken unto the people,
        that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams'
        horns passed on before the LORD, and blew with the trumpets:
        and the ark of the covenant of the LORD followed them.
006:009 And the armed men went before the priests that blew with the
        trumpets, and the rereward came after the ark, the priests
        going on, and blowing with the trumpets.
006:010 And Joshua had commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not
        shout, nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall any
        word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout;
        then shall ye shout.
006:011 So the ark of the LORD compassed the city, going about it
        once: and they came into the camp, and lodged in the camp.
006:012 And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up
        the ark of the LORD.
006:013 And seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams' horns before
        the ark of the LORD went on continually, and blew with the
        trumpets: and the armed men went before them; but the rereward
        came after the ark of the LORD, the priests going on, and
        blowing with the trumpets.
006:014 And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned
        into the camp: so they did six days.
006:015 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early
        about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the
        same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the
        city seven times.
006:016 And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew
        with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the
        LORD hath given you the city.
006:017 And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are
        therein, to the LORD: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she
        and all that are with her in the house, because she hid the
        messengers that we sent.
006:018 And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing,
        lest ye make yourselves accursed, when ye take of the accursed
        thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it.
006:019 But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron,
        are consecrated unto the LORD: they shall come into the
        treasury of the LORD.
006:020 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets:
        and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the
        trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the
        wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city,
        every man straight before him, and they took the city.
006:021 And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man
        and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the
        edge of the sword.
006:022 But Joshua had said unto the two men that had spied out the
        country, Go into the harlot's house, and bring out thence the
        woman, and all that she hath, as ye sware unto her.
006:023 And the young men that were spies went in, and brought out
        Rahab, and her father, and her mother, and her brethren, and
        all that she had; and they brought out all her kindred, and
        left them without the camp of Israel.
006:024 And they burnt the city with fire, and all that was therein:
        only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of
        iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the LORD.
006:025 And Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father's
        household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel
        even unto this day; because she hid the messengers, which
        Joshua sent to spy out Jericho.
006:026 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the
        man before the LORD, that riseth up and buildeth this city
        Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn,
        and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.
006:027 So the LORD was with Joshua; and his fame was noised
        throughout all the country.
007:001 But the children of Israel committed a trespass in the
        accursed thing: for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi,
        the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed
        thing: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against the
        children of Israel.
007:002 And Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is beside
        Bethaven, on the east of Bethel, and spake unto them, saying,
        Go up and view the country. And the men went up and viewed Ai.
007:003 And they returned to Joshua, and said unto him, Let not all
        the people go up; but let about two or three thousand men go
        up and smite Ai; and make not all the people to labour
        thither; for they are but few.
007:004 So there went up thither of the people about three thousand
        men: and they fled before the men of Ai.
007:005 And the men of Ai smote of them about thirty and six men: for
        they chased them from before the gate even unto Shebarim, and
        smote them in the going down: wherefore the hearts of the
        people melted, and became as water.
007:006 And Joshua rent his clothes, and fell to the earth upon his
        face before the ark of the LORD until the eventide, he and the
        elders of Israel, and put dust upon their heads.
007:007 And Joshua said, Alas, O LORD God, wherefore hast thou at all
        brought this people over Jordan, to deliver us into the hand
        of the Amorites, to destroy us? would to God we had been
        content, and dwelt on the other side Jordan!
007:008 O LORD, what shall I say, when Israel turneth their backs
        before their enemies!
007:009 For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land shall
        hear of it, and shall environ us round, and cut off our name
        from the earth: and what wilt thou do unto thy great name?
007:010 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest
        thou thus upon thy face?
007:011 Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed my
        covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of
        the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also,
        and they have put it even among their own stuff.
007:012 Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their
        enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because
        they were accursed: neither will I be with you any more,
        except ye destroy the accursed from among you.
007:013 Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against
        to morrow: for thus saith the LORD God of Israel, There is an
        accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not
        stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed
        thing from among you.
007:014 In the morning therefore ye shall be brought according to your
        tribes: and it shall be, that the tribe which the LORD taketh
        shall come according to the families thereof; and the family
        which the LORD shall take shall come by households; and the
        household which the LORD shall take shall come man by man.
007:015 And it shall be, that he that is taken with the accursed thing
        shall be burnt with fire, he and all that he hath: because he
        hath transgressed the covenant of the LORD, and because he
        hath wrought folly in Israel.
007:016 So Joshua rose up early in the morning, and brought Israel by
        their tribes; and the tribe of Judah was taken:
007:017 And he brought the family of Judah; and he took the family of
        the Zarhites: and he brought the family of the Zarhites man by
        man; and Zabdi was taken:
007:018 And he brought his household man by man; and Achan, the son of
        Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of
        Judah, was taken.
007:019 And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory
        to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and
        tell me now what thou hast done; hide it not from me.
007:020 And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned
        against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done:
007:021 When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and
        two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty
        shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and,
        behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and
        the silver under it.
007:022 So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran unto the tent; and,
        behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it.
007:023 And they took them out of the midst of the tent, and brought
        them unto Joshua, and unto all the children of Israel, and
        laid them out before the LORD.
007:024 And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of
        Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold,
        and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses,
        and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they
        brought them unto the valley of Achor.
007:025 And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall
        trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones,
        and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with
        stones.
007:026 And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this day.
        So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger. Wherefore
        the name of that place was called, The valley of Achor, unto
        this day.
008:001 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou
        dismayed: take all the people of war with thee, and arise, go
        up to Ai: see, I have given into thy hand the king of Ai, and
        his people, and his city, and his land:
008:002 And thou shalt do to Ai and her king as thou didst unto
        Jericho and her king: only the spoil thereof, and the cattle
        thereof, shall ye take for a prey unto yourselves: lay thee an
        ambush for the city behind it.
008:003 So Joshua arose, and all the people of war, to go up against
        Ai: and Joshua chose out thirty thousand mighty men of valour,
        and sent them away by night.
008:004 And he commanded them, saying, Behold, ye shall lie in wait
        against the city, even behind the city: go not very far from
        the city, but be ye all ready:
008:005 And I, and all the people that are with me, will approach unto
        the city: and it shall come to pass, when they come out
        against us, as at the first, that we will flee before them,
008:006 (For they will come out after us) till we have drawn them from
        the city; for they will say, They flee before us, as at the
        first: therefore we will flee before them.
008:007 Then ye shall rise up from the ambush, and seize upon the
        city: for the LORD your God will deliver it into your hand.
008:008 And it shall be, when ye have taken the city, that ye shall
        set the city on fire: according to the commandment of the LORD
        shall ye do. See, I have commanded you.
008:009 Joshua therefore sent them forth: and they went to lie in
        ambush, and abode between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of
        Ai: but Joshua lodged that night among the people.
008:010 And Joshua rose up early in the morning, and numbered the
        people, and went up, he and the elders of Israel, before the
        people to Ai.
008:011 And all the people, even the people of war that were with him,
        went up, and drew nigh, and came before the city, and pitched
        on the north side of Ai: now there was a valley between them
        and Ai.
008:012 And he took about five thousand men, and set them to lie in
        ambush between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of the city.
008:013 And when they had set the people, even all the host that was
        on the north of the city, and their liers in wait on the west
        of the city, Joshua went that night into the midst of the
        valley.
008:014 And it came to pass, when the king of Ai saw it, that they
        hasted and rose up early, and the men of the city went out
        against Israel to battle, he and all his people, at a time
        appointed, before the plain; but he wist not that there were
        liers in ambush against him behind the city.
008:015 And Joshua and all Israel made as if they were beaten before
        them, and fled by the way of the wilderness.
008:016 And all the people that were in Ai were called together to
        pursue after them: and they pursued after Joshua, and were
        drawn away from the city.
008:017 And there was not a man left in Ai or Bethel, that went not
        out after Israel: and they left the city open, and pursued
        after Israel.
008:018 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Stretch out the spear that is
        in thy hand toward Ai; for I will give it into thine hand. And
        Joshua stretched out the spear that he had in his hand toward
        the city.
008:019 And the ambush arose quickly out of their place, and they ran
        as soon as he had stretched out his hand: and they entered
        into the city, and took it, and hasted and set the city on
        fire.
008:020 And when the men of Ai looked behind them, they saw, and,
        behold, the smoke of the city ascended up to heaven, and they
        had no power to flee this way or that way: and the people that
        fled to the wilderness turned back upon the pursuers.
008:021 And when Joshua and all Israel saw that the ambush had taken
        the city, and that the smoke of the city ascended, then they
        turned again, and slew the men of Ai.
008:022 And the other issued out of the city against them; so they
        were in the midst of Israel, some on this side, and some on
        that side: and they smote them, so that they let none of them
        remain or escape.
008:023 And the king of Ai they took alive, and brought him to Joshua.
008:024 And it came to pass, when Israel had made an end of slaying
        all the inhabitants of Ai in the field, in the wilderness
        wherein they chased them, and when they were all fallen on the
        edge of the sword, until they were consumed, that all the
        Israelites returned unto Ai, and smote it with the edge of the
        sword.
008:025 And so it was, that all that fell that day, both of men and
        women, were twelve thousand, even all the men of Ai.
008:026 For Joshua drew not his hand back, wherewith he stretched out
        the spear, until he had utterly destroyed all the inhabitants
        of Ai.
008:027 Only the cattle and the spoil of that city Israel took for a
        prey unto themselves, according unto the word of the LORD
        which he commanded Joshua.
008:028 And Joshua burnt Ai, and made it an heap for ever, even a
        desolation unto this day.
008:029 And the king of Ai he hanged on a tree until eventide: and as
        soon as the sun was down, Joshua commanded that they should
        take his carcase down from the tree, and cast it at the
        entering of the gate of the city, and raise thereon a great
        heap of stones, that remaineth unto this day.
008:030 Then Joshua built an altar unto the LORD God of Israel in
        mount Ebal,
008:031 As Moses the servant of the LORD commanded the children of
        Israel, as it is written in the book of the law of Moses, an
        altar of whole stones, over which no man hath lift up any
        iron: and they offered thereon burnt offerings unto the LORD,
        and sacrificed peace offerings.
008:032 And he wrote there upon the stones a copy of the law of Moses,
        which he wrote in the presence of the children of Israel.
008:033 And all Israel, and their elders, and officers, and their
        judges, stood on this side the ark and on that side before the
        priests the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the
        LORD, as well the stranger, as he that was born among them;
        half of them over against mount Gerizim, and half of them over
        against mount Ebal; as Moses the servant of the LORD had
        commanded before, that they should bless the people of Israel.
008:034 And afterward he read all the words of the law, the blessings
        and cursings, according to all that is written in the book of
        the law.
008:035 There was not a word of all that Moses commanded, which Joshua
        read not before all the congregation of Israel, with the
        women, and the little ones, and the strangers that were
        conversant among them.
009:001 And it came to pass, when all the kings which were on this
        side Jordan, in the hills, and in the valleys, and in all the
        coasts of the great sea over against Lebanon, the Hittite, and
        the Amorite, the Canaanite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the
        Jebusite, heard thereof;
009:002 That they gathered themselves together, to fight with Joshua
        and with Israel, with one accord.
009:003 And when the inhabitants of Gibeon heard what Joshua had done
        unto Jericho and to Ai,
009:004 They did work wilily, and went and made as if they had been
        ambassadors, and took old sacks upon their asses, and wine
        bottles, old, and rent, and bound up;
009:005 And old shoes and clouted upon their feet, and old garments
        upon them; and all the bread of their provision was dry and
        mouldy.
009:006 And they went to Joshua unto the camp at Gilgal, and said unto
        him, and to the men of Israel, We be come from a far country:
        now therefore make ye a league with us.
009:007 And the men of Israel said unto the Hivites, Peradventure ye
        dwell among us; and how shall we make a league with you?
009:008 And they said unto Joshua, We are thy servants. And Joshua
        said unto them, Who are ye? and from whence come ye?
009:009 And they said unto him, From a very far country thy servants
        are come because of the name of the LORD thy God: for we have
        heard the fame of him, and all that he did in Egypt,
009:010 And all that he did to the two kings of the Amorites, that
        were beyond Jordan, to Sihon king of Heshbon, and to Og king
        of Bashan, which was at Ashtaroth.
009:011 Wherefore our elders and all the inhabitants of our country
        spake to us, saying, Take victuals with you for the journey,
        and go to meet them, and say unto them, We are your servants:
        therefore now make ye a league with us.
009:012 This our bread we took hot for our provision out of our houses
        on the day we came forth to go unto you; but now, behold, it
        is dry, and it is mouldy:
009:013 And these bottles of wine, which we filled, were new; and,
        behold, they be rent: and these our garments and our shoes are
        become old by reason of the very long journey.
009:014 And the men took of their victuals, and asked not counsel at
        the mouth of the LORD.
009:015 And Joshua made peace with them, and made a league with them,
        to let them live: and the princes of the congregation sware
        unto them.
009:016 And it came to pass at the end of three days after they had
        made a league with them, that they heard that they were their
        neighbours, and that they dwelt among them.
009:017 And the children of Israel journeyed, and came unto their
        cities on the third day. Now their cities were Gibeon, and
        Chephirah, and Beeroth, and Kirjathjearim.
009:018 And the children of Israel smote them not, because the princes
        of the congregation had sworn unto them by the LORD God of
        Israel. And all the congregation murmured against the princes.
009:019 But all the princes said unto all the congregation, We have
        sworn unto them by the LORD God of Israel: now therefore we
        may not touch them.
009:020 This we will do to them; we will even let them live, lest
        wrath be upon us, because of the oath which we sware unto
        them.
009:021 And the princes said unto them, Let them live; but let them be
        hewers of wood and drawers of water unto all the congregation;
        as the princes had promised them.
009:022 And Joshua called for them, and he spake unto them, saying,
        Wherefore have ye beguiled us, saying, We are very far from
        you; when ye dwell among us?
009:023 Now therefore ye are cursed, and there shall none of you be
        freed from being bondmen, and hewers of wood and drawers of
        water for the house of my God.
009:024 And they answered Joshua, and said, Because it was certainly
        told thy servants, how that the LORD thy God commanded his
        servant Moses to give you all the land, and to destroy all the
        inhabitants of the land from before you, therefore we were
        sore afraid of our lives because of you, and have done this
        thing.
009:025 And now, behold, we are in thine hand: as it seemeth good and
        right unto thee to do unto us, do.
009:026 And so did he unto them, and delivered them out of the hand of
        the children of Israel, that they slew them not.
009:027 And Joshua made them that day hewers of wood and drawers of
        water for the congregation, and for the altar of the LORD,
        even unto this day, in the place which he should choose.
010:001 Now it came to pass, when Adonizedec 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;
010:002 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.
010:003 Wherefore Adonizedec 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,
010:004 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.
010:005 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.
010:006 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.
010:007 So Joshua ascended from Gilgal, he, and all the people of war
        with him, and all the mighty men of valour.
010:008 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.
010:009 Joshua therefore came unto them suddenly, and went up from
        Gilgal all night.
010:010 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 Bethhoron, and smote them to Azekah, and
        unto Makkedah.
010:011 And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were
        in the going down to Bethhoron, 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.
010:012 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.
010:013 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.
010:014 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.
010:015 And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, unto the camp to
        Gilgal.
010:016 But these five kings fled, and hid themselves in a cave at
        Makkedah.
010:017 And it was told Joshua, saying, The five kings are found hid
        in a cave at Makkedah.
010:018 And Joshua said, Roll great stones upon the mouth of the cave,
        and set men by it for to keep them:
010:019 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.
010:020 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.
010:021 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.
010:022 Then said Joshua, Open the mouth of the cave, and bring out
        those five kings unto me out of the cave.
010:023 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.
010:024 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.
010:025 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.
010:026 And afterward Joshua smote them, and slew them, and hanged
        them on five trees: and they were hanging upon the trees until
        the evening.
010:027 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.
010:028 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.
010:029 Then Joshua passed from Makkedah, and all Israel with him,
        unto Libnah, and fought against Libnah:
010:030 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.
010:031 And Joshua passed from Libnah, and all Israel with him, unto
        Lachish, and encamped against it, and fought against it:
010:032 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.
010:033 Then Horam king of Gezer came up to help Lachish; and Joshua
        smote him and his people, until he had left him none
        remaining.
010:034 And from Lachish Joshua passed unto Eglon, and all Israel with
        him; and they encamped against it, and fought against it:
010:035 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.
010:036 And Joshua went up from Eglon, and all Israel with him, unto
        Hebron; and they fought against it:
010:037 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.
010:038 And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to Debir; and
        fought against it:
010:039 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.
010:040 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.
010:041 And Joshua smote them from Kadeshbarnea even unto Gaza, and
        all the country of Goshen, even unto Gibeon.
010:042 And all these kings and their land did Joshua take at one
        time, because the LORD God of Israel fought for Israel.
010:043 And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, unto the camp to
        Gilgal.
011:001 And it came to pass, when Jabin king of Hazor had heard those
        things, that he sent to Jobab king of Madon, and to the king
        of Shimron, and to the king of Achshaph,
011:002 And to the kings that were on the north of the mountains, and
        of the plains south of Chinneroth, and in the valley, and in
        the borders of Dor on the west,
011:003 And to the Canaanite on the east and on the west, and to the
        Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Jebusite
        in the mountains, and to the Hivite under Hermon in the land
        of Mizpeh.
011:004 And they went out, they and all their hosts with them, much
        people, even as the sand that is upon the sea shore in
        multitude, with horses and chariots very many.
011:005 And when all these kings were met together, they came and
        pitched together at the waters of Merom, to fight against
        Israel.
011:006 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Be not afraid because of them:
        for to morrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain
        before Israel: thou shalt hough their horses, and burn their
        chariots with fire.
011:007 So Joshua came, and all the people of war with him, against
        them by the waters of Merom suddenly; and they fell upon them.
011:008 And the LORD delivered them into the hand of Israel, who smote
        them, and chased them unto great Zidon, and unto
        Misrephothmaim, and unto the valley of Mizpeh eastward; and
        they smote them, until they left them none remaining.
011:009 And Joshua did unto them as the LORD bade him: he houghed
        their horses, and burnt their chariots with fire.
011:010 And Joshua at that time turned back, and took Hazor, and smote
        the king thereof with the sword: for Hazor beforetime was the
        head of all those kingdoms.
011:011 And they smote all the souls that were therein with the edge
        of the sword, utterly destroying them: there was not any left
        to breathe: and he burnt Hazor with fire.
011:012 And all the cities of those kings, and all the kings of them,
        did Joshua take, and smote them with the edge of the sword,
        and he utterly destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the
        LORD commanded.
011:013 But as for the cities that stood still in their strength,
        Israel burned none of them, save Hazor only; that did Joshua
        burn.
011:014 And all the spoil of these cities, and the cattle, the
        children of Israel took for a prey unto themselves; but every
        man they smote with the edge of the sword, until they had
        destroyed them, neither left they any to breathe.
011:015 As the LORD commanded Moses his servant, so did Moses command
        Joshua, and so did Joshua; he left nothing undone of all that
        the LORD commanded Moses.
011:016 So Joshua took all that land, the hills, and all the south
        country, and all the land of Goshen, and the valley, and the
        plain, and the mountain of Israel, and the valley of the same;
011:017 Even from the mount Halak, that goeth up to Seir, even unto
        Baalgad in the valley of Lebanon under mount Hermon: and all
        their kings he took, and smote them, and slew them.
011:018 Joshua made war a long time with all those kings.
011:019 There was not a city that made peace with the children of
        Israel, save the Hivites the inhabitants of Gibeon: all other
        they took in battle.
011:020 For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they
        should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy
        them utterly, and that they might have no favour, but that he
        might destroy them, as the LORD commanded Moses.
011:021 And at that time came Joshua, and cut off the Anakims from the
        mountains, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, and from all
        the mountains of Judah, and from all the mountains of Israel:
        Joshua destroyed them utterly with their cities.
011:022 There was none of the Anakims left in the land of the children
        of Israel: only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod, there
        remained.
011:023 So Joshua took the whole land, according to all that the LORD
        said unto Moses; and Joshua gave it for an inheritance unto
        Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. And the
        land rested from war.
012:001 Now these are the kings of the land, which the children of
        Israel smote, and possessed their land on the other side
        Jordan toward the rising of the sun, from the river Arnon unto
        mount Hermon, and all the plain on the east:
012:002 Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon, and ruled
        from Aroer, which is upon the bank of the river Arnon, and
        from the middle of the river, and from half Gilead, even unto
        the river Jabbok, which is the border of the children of
        Ammon;
012:003 And from the plain to the sea of Chinneroth on the east, and
        unto the sea of the plain, even the salt sea on the east, the
        way to Bethjeshimoth; and from the south, under Ashdothpisgah:
012:004 And the coast of Og king of Bashan, which was of the remnant
        of the giants, that dwelt at Ashtaroth and at Edrei,
012:005 And reigned in mount Hermon, and in Salcah, and in all Bashan,
        unto the border of the Geshurites and the Maachathites, and
        half Gilead, the border of Sihon king of Heshbon.
012:006 Them did Moses the servant of the LORD and the children of
        Israel smite: and Moses the servant of the LORD gave it for a
        possession unto the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half
        tribe of Manasseh.
012:007 And these are the kings of the country which Joshua and the
        children of Israel smote on this side Jordan on the west, from
        Baalgad in the valley of Lebanon even unto the mount Halak,
        that goeth up to Seir; which Joshua gave unto the tribes of
        Israel for a possession according to their divisions;
012:008 In the mountains, and in the valleys, and in the plains, and
        in the springs, and in the wilderness, and in the south
        country; the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Canaanites, the
        Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites:
012:009 The king of Jericho, one; the king of Ai, which is beside
        Bethel, one;
012:010 The king of Jerusalem, one; the king of Hebron, one;
012:011 The king of Jarmuth, one; the king of Lachish, one;
012:012 The king of Eglon, one; the king of Gezer, one;
012:013 The king of Debir, one; the king of Geder, one;
012:014 The king of Hormah, one; the king of Arad, one;
012:015 The king of Libnah, one; the king of Adullam, one;
012:016 The king of Makkedah, one; the king of Bethel, one;
012:017 The king of Tappuah, one; the king of Hepher, one;
012:018 The king of Aphek, one; the king of Lasharon, one;
012:019 The king of Madon, one; the king of Hazor, one;
012:020 The king of Shimronmeron, one; the king of Achshaph, one;
012:021 The king of Taanach, one; the king of Megiddo, one;
012:022 The king of Kedesh, one; the king of Jokneam of Carmel, one;
012:023 The king of Dor in the coast of Dor, one; the king of the
        nations of Gilgal, one;
012:024 The king of Tirzah, one: all the kings thirty and one.
013:001 Now Joshua was old and stricken in years; and the LORD said
        unto him, Thou art old and stricken in years, and there
        remaineth yet very much land to be possessed.
013:002 This is the land that yet remaineth: all the borders of the
        Philistines, and all Geshuri,
013:003 From Sihor, which is before Egypt, even unto the borders of
        Ekron northward, which is counted to the Canaanite: five lords
        of the Philistines; the Gazathites, and the Ashdothites, the
        Eshkalonites, the Gittites, and the Ekronites; also the
        Avites:
013:004 From the south, all the land of the Canaanites, and Mearah
        that is beside the Sidonians unto Aphek, to the borders of the
        Amorites:
013:005 And the land of the Giblites, and all Lebanon, toward the
        sunrising, from Baalgad under mount Hermon unto the entering
        into Hamath.
013:006 All the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon unto
        Misrephothmaim, and all the Sidonians, them will I drive out
        from before the children of Israel: only divide thou it by lot
        unto the Israelites for an inheritance, as I have commanded
        thee.
013:007 Now therefore divide this land for an inheritance unto the
        nine tribes, and the half tribe of Manasseh,
013:008 With whom the Reubenites and the Gadites have received their
        inheritance, which Moses gave them, beyond Jordan eastward,
        even as Moses the servant of the LORD gave them;
013:009 From Aroer, that is upon the bank of the river Arnon, and the
        city that is in the midst of the river, and all the plain of
        Medeba unto Dibon;
013:010 And all the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, which
        reigned in Heshbon, unto the border of the children of Ammon;
013:011 And Gilead, and the border of the Geshurites and Maachathites,
        and all mount Hermon, and all Bashan unto Salcah;
013:012 All the kingdom of Og in Bashan, which reigned in Ashtaroth
        and in Edrei, who remained of the remnant of the giants: for
        these did Moses smite, and cast them out.
013:013 Nevertheless the children of Israel expelled not the
        Geshurites, nor the Maachathites: but the Geshurites and the
        Maachathites dwell among the Israelites until this day.
013:014 Only unto the tribes of Levi he gave none inheritance; the
        sacrifices of the LORD God of Israel made by fire are their
        inheritance, as he said unto them.
013:015 And Moses gave unto the tribe of the children of Reuben
        inheritance according to their families.
013:016 And their coast was from Aroer, that is on the bank of the
        river Arnon, and the city that is in the midst of the river,
        and all the plain by Medeba;
013:017 Heshbon, and all her cities that are in the plain; Dibon, and
        Bamothbaal, and Bethbaalmeon,
013:018 And Jahaza, and Kedemoth, and Mephaath,
013:019 And Kirjathaim, and Sibmah, and Zarethshahar in the mount of
        the valley,
013:020 And Bethpeor, and Ashdothpisgah, and Bethjeshimoth,
013:021 And all the cities of the plain, and all the kingdom of Sihon
        king of the Amorites, which reigned in Heshbon, whom Moses
        smote with the princes of Midian, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and
        Hur, and Reba, which were dukes of Sihon, dwelling in the
        country.
013:022 Balaam also the son of Beor, the soothsayer, did the children
        of Israel slay with the sword among them that were slain by
        them.
013:023 And the border of the children of Reuben was Jordan, and the
        border thereof. This was the inheritance of the children of
        Reuben after their families, the cities and the villages
        thereof.
013:024 And Moses gave inheritance unto the tribe of Gad, even unto
        the children of Gad according to their families.
013:025 And their coast was Jazer, and all the cities of Gilead, and
        half the land of the children of Ammon, unto Aroer that is
        before Rabbah;
013:026 And from Heshbon unto Ramathmizpeh, and Betonim; and from
        Mahanaim unto the border of Debir;
013:027 And in the valley, Betharam, and Bethnimrah, and Succoth, and
        Zaphon, the rest of the kingdom of Sihon king of Heshbon,
        Jordan and his border, even unto the edge of the sea of
        Chinnereth on the other side Jordan eastward.
013:028 This is the inheritance of the children of Gad after their
        families, the cities, and their villages.
013:029 And Moses gave inheritance unto the half tribe of Manasseh:
        and this was the possession of the half tribe of the children
        of Manasseh by their families.
013:030 And their coast was from Mahanaim, all Bashan, all the kingdom
        of Og king of Bashan, and all the towns of Jair, which are in
        Bashan, threescore cities:
013:031 And half Gilead, and Ashtaroth, and Edrei, cities of the
        kingdom of Og in Bashan, were pertaining unto the children of
        Machir the son of Manasseh, even to the one half of the
        children of Machir by their families.
013:032 These are the countries which Moses did distribute for
        inheritance in the plains of Moab, on the other side Jordan,
        by Jericho, eastward.
013:033 But unto the tribe of Levi Moses gave not any inheritance: the
        LORD God of Israel was their inheritance, as he said unto
        them.
014:001 And these are the countries which the children of Israel
        inherited in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar the priest, and
        Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the
        tribes of the children of Israel, distributed for inheritance
        to them.
014:002 By lot was their inheritance, as the LORD commanded by the
        hand of Moses, for the nine tribes, and for the half tribe.
014:003 For Moses had given the inheritance of two tribes and an half
        tribe on the other side Jordan: but unto the Levites he gave
        none inheritance among them.
014:004 For the children of Joseph were two tribes, Manasseh and
        Ephraim: therefore they gave no part unto the Levites in the
        land, save cities to dwell in, with their suburbs for their
        cattle and for their substance.
014:005 As the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did,
        and they divided the land.
014:006 Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: and
        Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said unto him, Thou
        knowest the thing that the LORD said unto Moses the man of God
        concerning me and thee in Kadeshbarnea.
014:007 Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent
        me from Kadeshbarnea to espy out the land; and I brought him
        word again as it was in mine heart.
014:008 Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart
        of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God.
014:009 And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon
        thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy
        children's for ever, because thou hast wholly followed the
        LORD my God.
014:010 And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said,
        these forty and five years, even since the LORD spake this
        word unto Moses, while the children of Israel wandered in the
        wilderness: and now, lo, I am this day fourscore and five
        years old.
014:011 As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses
        sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now,
        for war, both to go out, and to come in.
014:012 Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in
        that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were
        there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the
        LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out,
        as the LORD said.
014:013 And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto Caleb the son of
        Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance.
014:014 Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of
        Jephunneh the Kenezite unto this day, because that he wholly
        followed the LORD God of Israel.
014:015 And the name of Hebron before was Kirjatharba; which Arba was
        a great man among the Anakims. And the land had rest from war.
015:001 This then was the lot of the tribe of the children of Judah by
        their families; even to the border of Edom the wilderness of
        Zin southward was the uttermost part of the south coast.
015:002 And their south border was from the shore of the salt sea,
        from the bay that looketh southward:
015:003 And it went out to the south side to Maalehacrabbim, and
        passed along to Zin, and ascended up on the south side unto
        Kadeshbarnea, and passed along to Hezron, and went up to Adar,
        and fetched a compass to Karkaa:
015:004 From thence it passed toward Azmon, and went out unto the
        river of Egypt; and the goings out of that coast were at the
        sea: this shall be your south coast.
015:005 And the east border was the salt sea, even unto the end of
        Jordan. And their border in the north quarter was from the bay
        of the sea at the uttermost part of Jordan:
015:006 And the border went up to Bethhogla, and passed along by the
        north of Betharabah; and the border went up to the stone of
        Bohan the son of Reuben:
015:007 And the border went up toward Debir from the valley of Achor,
        and so northward, looking toward Gilgal, that is before the
        going up to Adummim, which is on the south side of the river:
        and the border passed toward the waters of Enshemesh, and the
        goings out thereof were at Enrogel:
015:008 And the border went up by the valley of the son of Hinnom unto
        the south side of the Jebusite; the same is Jerusalem: and the
        border went up to the top of the mountain that lieth before
        the valley of Hinnom westward, which is at the end of the
        valley of the giants northward:
015:009 And the border was drawn from the top of the hill unto the
        fountain of the water of Nephtoah, and went out to the cities
        of mount Ephron; and the border was drawn to Baalah, which is
        Kirjathjearim:
015:010 And the border compassed from Baalah westward unto mount Seir,
        and passed along unto the side of mount Jearim, which is
        Chesalon, on the north side, and went down to Bethshemesh, and
        passed on to Timnah:
015:011 And the border went out unto the side of Ekron northward: and
        the border was drawn to Shicron, and passed along to mount
        Baalah, and went out unto Jabneel; and the goings out of the
        border were at the sea.
015:012 And the west border was to the great sea, and the coast
        thereof. This is the coast of the children of Judah round
        about according to their families.
015:013 And unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh he gave a part among the
        children of Judah, according to the commandment of the LORD to
        Joshua, even the city of Arba the father of Anak, which city
        is Hebron.
015:014 And Caleb drove thence the three sons of Anak, Sheshai, and
        Ahiman, and Talmai, the children of Anak.
015:015 And he went up thence to the inhabitants of Debir: and the
        name of Debir before was Kirjathsepher.
015:016 And Caleb said, He that smiteth Kirjathsepher, and taketh it,
        to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife.
015:017 And Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it:
        and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife.
015:018 And it came to pass, as she came unto him, that she moved him
        to ask of her father a field: and she lighted off her ass; and
        Caleb said unto her, What wouldest thou?
015:019 Who answered, Give me a blessing; for thou hast given me a
        south land; give me also springs of water. And he gave her the
        upper springs, and the nether springs.
015:020 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah
        according to their families.
015:021 And the uttermost cities of the tribe of the children of Judah
        toward the coast of Edom southward were Kabzeel, and Eder, and
        Jagur,
015:022 And Kinah, and Dimonah, and Adadah,
015:023 And Kedesh, and Hazor, and Ithnan,
015:024 Ziph, and Telem, and Bealoth,
015:025 And Hazor, Hadattah, and Kerioth, and Hezron, which is Hazor,
015:026 Amam, and Shema, and Moladah,
015:027 And Hazargaddah, and Heshmon, and Bethpalet,
015:028 And Hazarshual, and Beersheba, and Bizjothjah,
015:029 Baalah, and Iim, and Azem,
015:030 And Eltolad, and Chesil, and Hormah,
015:031 And Ziklag, and Madmannah, and Sansannah,
015:032 And Lebaoth, and Shilhim, and Ain, and Rimmon: all the cities
        are twenty and nine, with their villages:
015:033 And in the valley, Eshtaol, and Zoreah, and Ashnah,
015:034 And Zanoah, and Engannim, Tappuah, and Enam,
015:035 Jarmuth, and Adullam, Socoh, and Azekah,
015:036 And Sharaim, and Adithaim, and Gederah, and Gederothaim;
        fourteen cities with their villages:
015:037 Zenan, and Hadashah, and Migdalgad,
015:038 And Dilean, and Mizpeh, and Joktheel,
015:039 Lachish, and Bozkath, and Eglon,
015:040 And Cabbon, and Lahmam, and Kithlish,
015:041 And Gederoth, Bethdagon, and Naamah, and Makkedah; sixteen
        cities with their villages:
015:042 Libnah, and Ether, and Ashan,
015:043 And Jiphtah, and Ashnah, and Nezib,
015:044 And Keilah, and Achzib, and Mareshah; nine cities with their
        villages:
015:045 Ekron, with her towns and her villages:
015:046 From Ekron even unto the sea, all that lay near Ashdod, with
        their villages:
015:047 Ashdod with her towns and her villages, Gaza with her towns
        and her villages, unto the river of Egypt, and the great sea,
        and the border thereof:
015:048 And in the mountains, Shamir, and Jattir, and Socoh,
015:049 And Dannah, and Kirjathsannah, which is Debir,
015:050 And Anab, and Eshtemoh, and Anim,
015:051 And Goshen, and Holon, and Giloh; eleven cities with their
        villages:
015:052 Arab, and Dumah, and Eshean,
015:053 And Janum, and Bethtappuah, and Aphekah,
015:054 And Humtah, and Kirjatharba, which is Hebron, and Zior; nine
        cities with their villages:
015:055 Maon, Carmel, and Ziph, and Juttah,
015:056 And Jezreel, and Jokdeam, and Zanoah,
015:057 Cain, Gibeah, and Timnah; ten cities with their villages:
015:058 Halhul, Bethzur, and Gedor,
015:059 And Maarath, and Bethanoth, and Eltekon; six cities with their
        villages:
015:060 Kirjathbaal, which is Kirjathjearim, and Rabbah; two cities
        with their villages:
015:061 In the wilderness, Betharabah, Middin, and Secacah,
015:062 And Nibshan, and the city of Salt, and Engedi; six cities with
        their villages.
015:063 As for the Jebusites the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the
        children of Judah could not drive them out; but the Jebusites
        dwell with the children of Judah at Jerusalem unto this day.
016:001 And the lot of the children of Joseph fell from Jordan by
        Jericho, unto the water of Jericho on the east, to the
        wilderness that goeth up from Jericho throughout mount Bethel,
016:002 And goeth out from Bethel to Luz, and passeth along unto the
        borders of Archi to Ataroth,
016:003 And goeth down westward to the coast of Japhleti, unto the
        coast of Bethhoron the nether, and to Gezer; and the goings
        out thereof are at the sea.
016:004 So the children of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, took their
        inheritance.
016:005 And the border of the children of Ephraim according to their
        families was thus: even the border of their inheritance on the
        east side was Atarothaddar, unto Bethhoron the upper;
016:006 And the border went out toward the sea to Michmethah on the
        north side; and the border went about eastward unto
        Taanathshiloh, and passed by it on the east to Janohah;
016:007 And it went down from Janohah to Ataroth, and to Naarath, and
        came to Jericho, and went out at Jordan.
016:008 The border went out from Tappuah westward unto the river
        Kanah; and the goings out thereof were at the sea. This is the
        inheritance of the tribe of the children of Ephraim by their
        families.
016:009 And the separate cities for the children of Ephraim were among
        the inheritance of the children of Manasseh, all the cities
        with their villages.
016:010 And they drave not out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer: but
        the Canaanites dwell among the Ephraimites unto this day, and
        serve under tribute.
017:001 There was also a lot for the tribe of Manasseh; for he was the
        firstborn of Joseph; to wit, for Machir the firstborn of
        Manasseh, the father of Gilead: because he was a man of war,
        therefore he had Gilead and Bashan.
017:002 There was also a lot for the rest of the children of Manasseh
        by their families; for the children of Abiezer, and for the
        children of Helek, and for the children of Asriel, and for the
        children of Shechem, and for the children of Hepher, and for
        the children of Shemida: these were the male children of
        Manasseh the son of Joseph by their families.
017:003 But Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son
        of Machir, the son of Manasseh, had no sons, but daughters:
        and these are the names of his daughters, Mahlah, and Noah,
        Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.
017:004 And they came near before Eleazar the priest, and before
        Joshua the son of Nun, and before the princes, saying, The
        LORD commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our
        brethren. Therefore according to the commandment of the LORD
        he gave them an inheritance among the brethren of their
        father.
017:005 And there fell ten portions to Manasseh, beside the land of
        Gilead and Bashan, which were on the other side Jordan;
017:006 Because the daughters of Manasseh had an inheritance among his
        sons: and the rest of Manasseh's sons had the land of Gilead.
017:007 And the coast of Manasseh was from Asher to Michmethah, that
        lieth before Shechem; and the border went along on the right
        hand unto the inhabitants of Entappuah.
017:008 Now Manasseh had the land of Tappuah: but Tappuah on the
        border of Manasseh belonged to the children of Ephraim;
017:009 And the coast descended unto the river Kanah, southward of the
        river: these cities of Ephraim are among the cities of
        Manasseh: the coast of Manasseh also was on the north side of
        the river, and the outgoings of it were at the sea:
017:010 Southward it was Ephraim's, and northward it was Manasseh's,
        and the sea is his border; and they met together in Asher on
        the north, and in Issachar on the east.
017:011 And Manasseh had in Issachar and in Asher Bethshean and her
        towns, and Ibleam and her towns, and the inhabitants of Dor
        and her towns, and the inhabitants of Endor and her towns, and
        the inhabitants of Taanach and her towns, and the inhabitants
        of Megiddo and her towns, even three countries.
017:012 Yet the children of Manasseh could not drive out the
        inhabitants of those cities; but the Canaanites would dwell in
        that land.
017:013 Yet it came to pass, when the children of Israel were waxen
        strong, that they put the Canaanites to tribute, but did not
        utterly drive them out.
017:014 And the children of Joseph spake unto Joshua, saying, Why hast
        thou given me but one lot and one portion to inherit, seeing I
        am a great people, forasmuch as the LORD hath blessed me
        hitherto?
017:015 And Joshua answered them, If thou be a great people, then get
        thee up to the wood country, and cut down for thyself there in
        the land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim
        be too narrow for thee.
017:016 And the children of Joseph said, The hill is not enough for
        us: and all the Canaanites that dwell in the land of the
        valley have chariots of iron, both they who are of Bethshean
        and her towns, and they who are of the valley of Jezreel.
017:017 And Joshua spake unto the house of Joseph, even to Ephraim and
        to Manasseh, saying, Thou art a great people, and hast great
        power: thou shalt not have one lot only:
017:018 But the mountain shall be thine; for it is a wood, and thou
        shalt cut it down: and the outgoings of it shall be thine: for
        thou shalt drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron
        chariots, and though they be strong.
018:001 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled
        together at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the
        congregation there. And the land was subdued before them.
018:002 And there remained among the children of Israel seven tribes,
        which had not yet received their inheritance.
018:003 And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long are ye
        slack to go to possess the land, which the LORD God of your
        fathers hath given you?
018:004 Give out from among you three men for each tribe: and I will
        send them, and they shall rise, and go through the land, and
        describe it according to the inheritance of them; and they
        shall come again to me.
018:005 And they shall divide it into seven parts: Judah shall abide
        in their coast on the south, and the house of Joseph shall
        abide in their coasts on the north.
018:006 Ye shall therefore describe the land into seven parts, and
        bring the description hither to me, that I may cast lots for
        you here before the LORD our God.
018:007 But the Levites have no part among you; for the priesthood of
        the LORD is their inheritance: and Gad, and Reuben, and half
        the tribe of Manasseh, have received their inheritance beyond
        Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave
        them.
018:008 And the men arose, and went away: and Joshua charged them that
        went to describe the land, saying, Go and walk through the
        land, and describe it, and come again to me, that I may here
        cast lots for you before the LORD in Shiloh.
018:009 And the men went and passed through the land, and described it
        by cities into seven parts in a book, and came again to Joshua
        to the host at Shiloh.
018:010 And Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD: and
        there Joshua divided the land unto the children of Israel
        according to their divisions.
018:011 And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up
        according to their families: and the coast of their lot came
        forth between the children of Judah and the children of
        Joseph.
018:012 And their border on the north side was from Jordan; and the
        border went up to the side of Jericho on the north side, and
        went up through the mountains westward; and the goings out
        thereof were at the wilderness of Bethaven.
018:013 And the border went over from thence toward Luz, to the side
        of Luz, which is Bethel, southward; and the border descended
        to Atarothadar, near the hill that lieth on the south side of
        the nether Bethhoron.
018:014 And the border was drawn thence, and compassed the corner of
        the sea southward, from the hill that lieth before Bethhoron
        southward; and the goings out thereof were at Kirjathbaal,
        which is Kirjathjearim, a city of the children of Judah: this
        was the west quarter.
018:015 And the south quarter was from the end of Kirjathjearim, and
        the border went out on the west, and went out to the well of
        waters of Nephtoah:
018:016 And the border came down to the end of the mountain that lieth
        before the valley of the son of Hinnom, and which is in the
        valley of the giants on the north, and descended to the valley
        of Hinnom, to the side of Jebusi on the south, and descended
        to Enrogel,
018:017 And was drawn from the north, and went forth to Enshemesh, and
        went forth toward Geliloth, which is over against the going up
        of Adummim, and descended to the stone of Bohan the son of
        Reuben,
018:018 And passed along toward the side over against Arabah
        northward, and went down unto Arabah:
018:019 And the border passed along to the side of Bethhoglah
        northward: and the outgoings of the border were at the north
        bay of the salt sea at the south end of Jordan: this was the
        south coast.
018:020 And Jordan was the border of it on the east side. This was the
        inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the coasts thereof
        round about, according to their families.
018:021 Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin
        according to their families were Jericho, and Bethhoglah, and
        the valley of Keziz,
018:022 And Betharabah, and Zemaraim, and Bethel,
018:023 And Avim, and Pharah, and Ophrah,
018:024 And Chepharhaammonai, and Ophni, and Gaba; twelve cities with
        their villages:
018:025 Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth,
018:026 And Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah,
018:027 And Rekem, and Irpeel, and Taralah,
018:028 And Zelah, Eleph, and Jebusi, which is Jerusalem, Gibeath, and
        Kirjath; fourteen cities with their villages. This is the
        inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their
        families.
019:001 And the second lot came forth to Simeon, even for the tribe of
        the children of Simeon according to their families: and their
        inheritance was within the inheritance of the children of
        Judah.
019:002 And they had in their inheritance Beersheba, and Sheba, and
        Moladah,
019:003 And Hazarshual, and Balah, and Azem,
019:004 And Eltolad, and Bethul, and Hormah,
019:005 And Ziklag, and Bethmarcaboth, and Hazarsusah,
019:006 And Bethlebaoth, and Sharuhen; thirteen cities and their
        villages:
019:007 Ain, Remmon, and Ether, and Ashan; four cities and their
        villages:
019:008 And all the villages that were round about these cities to
        Baalathbeer, Ramath of the south. This is the inheritance of
        the tribe of the children of Simeon according to their
        families.
019:009 Out of the portion of the children of Judah was the
        inheritance of the children of Simeon: for the part of the
        children of Judah was too much for them: therefore the
        children of Simeon had their inheritance within the
        inheritance of them.
019:010 And the third lot came up for the children of Zebulun
        according to their families: and the border of their
        inheritance was unto Sarid:
019:011 And their border went up toward the sea, and Maralah, and
        reached to Dabbasheth, and reached to the river that is before
        Jokneam;
019:012 And turned from Sarid eastward toward the sunrising unto the
        border of Chislothtabor, and then goeth out to Daberath, and
        goeth up to Japhia,
019:013 And from thence passeth on along on the east to Gittahhepher,
        to Ittahkazin, and goeth out to Remmonmethoar to Neah;
019:014 And the border compasseth it on the north side to Hannathon:
        and the outgoings thereof are in the valley of Jiphthahel:
019:015 And Kattath, and Nahallal, and Shimron, and Idalah, and
        Bethlehem: twelve cities with their villages.
019:016 This is the inheritance of the children of Zebulun according
        to their families, these cities with their villages.
019:017 And the fourth lot came out to Issachar, for the children of
        Issachar according to their families.
019:018 And their border was toward Jezreel, and Chesulloth, and
        Shunem,
019:019 And Haphraim, and Shihon, and Anaharath,
019:020 And Rabbith, and Kishion, and Abez,
019:021 And Remeth, and Engannim, and Enhaddah, and Bethpazzez;
019:022 And the coast reacheth to Tabor, and Shahazimah, and
        Bethshemesh; and the outgoings of their border were at Jordan:
        sixteen cities with their villages.
019:023 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of
        Issachar according to their families, the cities and their
        villages.
019:024 And the fifth lot came out for the tribe of the children of
        Asher according to their families.
019:025 And their border was Helkath, and Hali, and Beten, and
        Achshaph,
019:026 And Alammelech, and Amad, and Misheal; and reacheth to Carmel
        westward, and to Shihorlibnath;
019:027 And turneth toward the sunrising to Bethdagon, and reacheth to
        Zebulun, and to the valley of Jiphthahel toward the north side
        of Bethemek, and Neiel, and goeth out to Cabul on the left
        hand,
019:028 And Hebron, and Rehob, and Hammon, and Kanah, even unto great
        Zidon;
019:029 And then the coast turneth to Ramah, and to the strong city
        Tyre; and the coast turneth to Hosah; and the outgoings
        thereof are at the sea from the coast to Achzib:
019:030 Ummah also, and Aphek, and Rehob: twenty and two cities with
        their villages.
019:031 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Asher
        according to their families, these cities with their villages.
019:032 The sixth lot came out to the children of Naphtali, even for
        the children of Naphtali according to their families.
019:033 And their coast was from Heleph, from Allon to Zaanannim, and
        Adami, Nekeb, and Jabneel, unto Lakum; and the outgoings
        thereof were at Jordan:
019:034 And then the coast turneth westward to Aznothtabor, and goeth
        out from thence to Hukkok, and reacheth to Zebulun on the
        south side, and reacheth to Asher on the west side, and to
        Judah upon Jordan toward the sunrising.
019:035 And the fenced cities are Ziddim, Zer, and Hammath, Rakkath,
        and Chinnereth,
019:036 And Adamah, and Ramah, and Hazor,
019:037 And Kedesh, and Edrei, and Enhazor,
019:038 And Iron, and Migdalel, Horem, and Bethanath, and Bethshemesh;
        nineteen cities with their villages.
019:039 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of
        Naphtali according to their families, the cities and their
        villages.
019:040 And the seventh lot came out for the tribe of the children of
        Dan according to their families.
019:041 And the coast of their inheritance was Zorah, and Eshtaol, and
        Irshemesh,
019:042 And Shaalabbin, and Ajalon, and Jethlah,
019:043 And Elon, and Thimnathah, and Ekron,
019:044 And Eltekeh, and Gibbethon, and Baalath,
019:045 And Jehud, and Beneberak, and Gathrimmon,
019:046 And Mejarkon, and Rakkon, with the border before Japho.
019:047 And the coast of the children of Dan went out too little for
        them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against
        Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword,
        and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan,
        after the name of Dan their father.
019:048 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Dan
        according to their families, these cities with their villages.
019:049 When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance
        by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to
        Joshua the son of Nun among them:
019:050 According to the word of the LORD they gave him the city which
        he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the
        city, and dwelt therein.
019:051 These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and
        Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the
        tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance
        by lot in Shiloh before the LORD, at the door of the
        tabernacle of the congregation. So they made an end of
        dividing the country.
020:001 The LORD also spake unto Joshua, saying,
020:002 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, Appoint out for you
        cities of refuge, whereof I spake unto you by the hand of
        Moses:
020:003 That the slayer that killeth any person unawares and
        unwittingly may flee thither: and they shall be your refuge
        from the avenger of blood.
020:004 And when he that doth flee unto one of those cities shall
        stand at the entering of the gate of the city, and shall
        declare his cause in the ears of the elders of that city, they
        shall take him into the city unto them, and give him a place,
        that he may dwell among them.
020:005 And if the avenger of blood pursue after him, then they shall
        not deliver the slayer up into his hand; because he smote his
        neighbour unwittingly, and hated him not beforetime.
020:006 And he shall dwell in that city, until he stand before the
        congregation for judgment, and until the death of the high
        priest that shall be in those days: then shall the slayer
        return, and come unto his own city, and unto his own house,
        unto the city from whence he fled.
020:007 And they appointed Kedesh in Galilee in mount Naphtali, and
        Shechem in mount Ephraim, and Kirjatharba, which is Hebron, in
        the mountain of Judah.
020:008 And on the other side Jordan by Jericho eastward, they
        assigned Bezer in the wilderness upon the plain out of the
        tribe of Reuben, and Ramoth in Gilead out of the tribe of Gad,
        and Golan in Bashan out of the tribe of Manasseh.
020:009 These were the cities appointed for all the children of
        Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them, that
        whosoever killeth any person at unawares might flee thither,
        and not die by the hand of the avenger of blood, until he
        stood before the congregation.
021:001 Then came near the heads of the fathers of the Levites unto
        Eleazar the priest, and unto Joshua the son of Nun, and unto
        the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of
        Israel;
021:002 And they spake unto them at Shiloh in the land of Canaan,
        saying, The LORD commanded by the hand of Moses to give us
        cities to dwell in, with the suburbs thereof for our cattle.
021:003 And the children of Israel gave unto the Levites out of their
        inheritance, at the commandment of the LORD, these cities and
        their suburbs.
021:004 And the lot came out for the families of the Kohathites: and
        the children of Aaron the priest, which were of the Levites,
        had by lot out of the tribe of Judah, and out of the tribe of
        Simeon, and out of the tribe of Benjamin, thirteen cities.
021:005 And the rest of the children of Kohath had by lot out of the
        families of the tribe of Ephraim, and out of the tribe of Dan,
        and out of the half tribe of Manasseh, ten cities.
021:006 And the children of Gershon had by lot out of the families of
        the tribe of Issachar, and out of the tribe of Asher, and out
        of the tribe of Naphtali, and out of the half tribe of
        Manasseh in Bashan, thirteen cities.
021:007 The children of Merari by their families had out of the tribe
        of Reuben, and out of the tribe of Gad, and out of the tribe
        of Zebulun, twelve cities.
021:008 And the children of Israel gave by lot unto the Levites these
        cities with their suburbs, as the LORD commanded by the hand
        of Moses.
021:009 And they gave out of the tribe of the children of Judah, and
        out of the tribe of the children of Simeon, these cities which
        are here mentioned by name.
021:010 Which the children of Aaron, being of the families of the
        Kohathites, who were of the children of Levi, had: for theirs
        was the first lot.
021:011 And they gave them the city of Arba the father of Anak, which
        city is Hebron, in the hill country of Judah, with the suburbs
        thereof round about it.
021:012 But the fields of the city, and the villages thereof, gave
        they to Caleb the son of Jephunneh for his possession.
021:013 Thus they gave to the children of Aaron the priest Hebron with
        her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Libnah
        with her suburbs,
021:014 And Jattir with her suburbs, and Eshtemoa with her suburbs,
021:015 And Holon with her suburbs, and Debir with her suburbs,
021:016 And Ain with her suburbs, and Juttah with her suburbs, and
        Bethshemesh with her suburbs; nine cities out of those two
        tribes.
021:017 And out of the tribe of Benjamin, Gibeon with her suburbs,
        Geba with her suburbs,
021:018 Anathoth with her suburbs, and Almon with her suburbs; four
        cities.
021:019 All the cities of the children of Aaron, the priests, were
        thirteen cities with their suburbs.
021:020 And the families of the children of Kohath, the Levites which
        remained of the children of Kohath, even they had the cities
        of their lot out of the tribe of Ephraim.
021:021 For they gave them Shechem with her suburbs in mount Ephraim,
        to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Gezer with her
        suburbs,
021:022 And Kibzaim with her suburbs, and Bethhoron with her suburbs;
        four cities.
021:023 And out of the tribe of Dan, Eltekeh with her suburbs,
        Gibbethon with her suburbs,
021:024 Aijalon with her suburbs, Gathrimmon with her suburbs; four
        cities.
021:025 And out of the half tribe of Manasseh, Tanach with her
        suburbs, and Gathrimmon with her suburbs; two cities.
021:026 All the cities were ten with their suburbs for the families of
        the children of Kohath that remained.
021:027 And unto the children of Gershon, of the families of the
        Levites, out of the other half tribe of Manasseh they gave
        Golan in Bashan with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for
        the slayer; and Beeshterah with her suburbs; two cities.
021:028 And out of the tribe of Issachar, Kishon with her suburbs,
        Dabareh with her suburbs,
021:029 Jarmuth with her suburbs, Engannim with her suburbs; four
        cities.
021:030 And out of the tribe of Asher, Mishal with her suburbs, Abdon
        with her suburbs,
021:031 Helkath with her suburbs, and Rehob with her suburbs; four
        cities.
021:032 And out of the tribe of Naphtali, Kedesh in Galilee with her
        suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Hammothdor
        with her suburbs, and Kartan with her suburbs; three cities.
021:033 All the cities of the Gershonites according to their families
        were thirteen cities with their suburbs.
021:034 And unto the families of the children of Merari, the rest of
        the Levites, out of the tribe of Zebulun, Jokneam with her
        suburbs, and Kartah with her suburbs,
021:035 Dimnah with her suburbs, Nahalal with her suburbs; four
        cities.
021:036 And out of the tribe of Reuben, Bezer with her suburbs, and
        Jahazah with her suburbs,
021:037 Kedemoth with her suburbs, and Mephaath with her suburbs; four
        cities.
021:038 And out of the tribe of Gad, Ramoth in Gilead with her
        suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Mahanaim
        with her suburbs,
021:039 Heshbon with her suburbs, Jazer with her suburbs; four cities
        in all.
021:040 So all the cities for the children of Merari by their
        families, which were remaining of the families of the Levites,
        were by their lot twelve cities.
021:041 All the cities of the Levites within the possession of the
        children of Israel were forty and eight cities with their
        suburbs.
021:042 These cities were every one with their suburbs round about
        them: thus were all these cities.
021:043 And the LORD gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to
        give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt
        therein.
021:044 And the LORD gave them rest round about, according to all that
        he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all
        their enemies before them; the LORD delivered all their
        enemies into their hand.
021:045 There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had
        spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.
022:001 Then Joshua called the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the
        half tribe of Manasseh,
022:002 And said unto them, Ye have kept all that Moses the servant of
        the LORD commanded you, and have obeyed my voice in all that I
        commanded you:
022:003 Ye have not left your brethren these many days unto this day,
        but have kept the charge of the commandment of the LORD your
        God.
022:004 And now the LORD your God hath given rest unto your brethren,
        as he promised them: therefore now return ye, and get you unto
        your tents, and unto the land of your possession, which Moses
        the servant of the LORD gave you on the other side Jordan.
022:005 But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law,
        which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the
        LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his
        commandments, and to cleave unto him, and to serve him with
        all your heart and with all your soul.
022:006 So Joshua blessed them, and sent them away: and they went unto
        their tents.
022:007 Now to the one half of the tribe of Manasseh Moses had given
        possession in Bashan: but unto the other half thereof gave
        Joshua among their brethren on this side Jordan westward. And
        when Joshua sent them away also unto their tents, then he
        blessed them,
022:008 And he spake unto them, saying, Return with much riches unto
        your tents, and with very much cattle, with silver, and with
        gold, and with brass, and with iron, and with very much
        raiment: divide the spoil of your enemies with your brethren.
022:009 And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the
        half tribe of Manasseh returned, and departed from the
        children of Israel out of Shiloh, which is in the land of
        Canaan, to go unto the country of Gilead, to the land of their
        possession, whereof they were possessed, according to the word
        of the LORD by the hand of Moses.
022:010 And when they came unto the borders of Jordan, that are in the
        land of Canaan, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad
        and the half tribe of Manasseh built there an altar by Jordan,
        a great altar to see to.
022:011 And the children of Israel heard say, Behold, the children of
        Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh
        have built an altar over against the land of Canaan, in the
        borders of Jordan, at the passage of the children of Israel.
022:012 And when the children of Israel heard of it, the whole
        congregation of the children of Israel gathered themselves
        together at Shiloh, to go up to war against them.
022:013 And the children of Israel sent unto the children of Reuben,
        and to the children of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh,
        into the land of Gilead, Phinehas the son of Eleazar the
        priest,
022:014 And with him ten princes, of each chief house a prince
        throughout all the tribes of Israel; and each one was an head
        of the house of their fathers among the thousands of Israel.
022:015 And they came unto the children of Reuben, and to the children
        of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, unto the land of
        Gilead, and they spake with them, saying,
022:016 Thus saith the whole congregation of the LORD, What trespass
        is this that ye have committed against the God of Israel, to
        turn away this day from following the LORD, in that ye have
        builded you an altar, that ye might rebel this day against the
        LORD?
022:017 Is the iniquity of Peor too little for us, from which we are
        not cleansed until this day, although there was a plague in
        the congregation of the LORD,
022:018 But that ye must turn away this day from following the LORD?
        and it will be, seeing ye rebel to day against the LORD, that
        to morrow he will be wroth with the whole congregation of
        Israel.
022:019 Notwithstanding, if the land of your possession be unclean,
        then pass ye over unto the land of the possession of the LORD,
        wherein the LORD's tabernacle dwelleth, and take possession
        among us: but rebel not against the LORD, nor rebel against
        us, in building you an altar beside the altar of the LORD our
        God.
022:020 Did not Achan the son of Zerah commit a trespass in the
        accursed thing, and wrath fell on all the congregation of
        Israel? and that man perished not alone in his iniquity.
022:021 Then the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the
        half tribe of Manasseh answered, and said unto the heads of
        the thousands of Israel,
022:022 The LORD God of gods, the LORD God of gods, he knoweth, and
        Israel he shall know; if it be in rebellion, or if in
        transgression against the LORD, (save us not this day,)
022:023 That we have built us an altar to turn from following the
        LORD, or if to offer thereon burnt offering or meat offering,
        or if to offer peace offerings thereon, let the LORD himself
        require it;
022:024 And if we have not rather done it for fear of this thing,
        saying, In time to come your children might speak unto our
        children, saying, What have ye to do with the LORD God of
        Israel?
022:025 For the LORD hath made Jordan a border between us and you, ye
        children of Reuben and children of Gad; ye have no part in the
        LORD: so shall your children make our children cease from
        fearing the LORD.
022:026 Therefore we said, Let us now prepare to build us an altar,
        not for burnt offering, nor for sacrifice:
022:027 But that it may be a witness between us, and you, and our
        generations after us, that we might do the service of the LORD
        before him with our burnt offerings, and with our sacrifices,
        and with our peace offerings; that your children may not say
        to our children in time to come, Ye have no part in the LORD.
022:028 Therefore said we, that it shall be, when they should so say
        to us or to our generations in time to come, that we may say
        again, Behold the pattern of the altar of the LORD, which our
        fathers made, not for burnt offerings, nor for sacrifices; but
        it is a witness between us and you.
022:029 God forbid that we should rebel against the LORD, and turn
        this day from following the LORD, to build an altar for burnt
        offerings, for meat offerings, or for sacrifices, beside the
        altar of the LORD our God that is before his tabernacle.
022:030 And when Phinehas the priest, and the princes of the
        congregation and heads of the thousands of Israel which were
        with him, heard the words that the children of Reuben and the
        children of Gad and the children of Manasseh spake, it pleased
        them.
022:031 And Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest said unto the
        children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the
        children of Manasseh, This day we perceive that the LORD is
        among us, because ye have not committed this trespass against
        the LORD: now ye have delivered the children of Israel out of
        the hand of the LORD.
022:032 And Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, and the princes,
        returned from the children of Reuben, and from the children of
        Gad, out of the land of Gilead, unto the land of Canaan, to
        the children of Israel, and brought them word again.
022:033 And the thing pleased the children of Israel; and the children
        of Israel blessed God, and did not intend to go up against
        them in battle, to destroy the land wherein the children of
        Reuben and Gad dwelt.
022:034 And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad called the
        altar Ed: for it shall be a witness between us that the LORD
        is God.
023:001 And it came to pass a long time after that the LORD had given
        rest unto Israel from all their enemies round about, that
        Joshua waxed old and stricken in age.
023:002 And Joshua called for all Israel, and for their elders, and
        for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers,
        and said unto them, I am old and stricken in age:
023:003 And ye have seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto all
        these nations because of you; for the LORD your God is he that
        hath fought for you.
023:004 Behold, I have divided unto you by lot these nations that
        remain, to be an inheritance for your tribes, from Jordan,
        with all the nations that I have cut off, even unto the great
        sea westward.
023:005 And the LORD your God, he shall expel them from before you,
        and drive them from out of your sight; and ye shall possess
        their land, as the LORD your God hath promised unto you.
023:006 Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is
        written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not
        aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left;
023:007 That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among
        you; neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause
        to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto
        them:
023:008 But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this
        day.
023:009 For the LORD hath driven out from before you great nations and
        strong: but as for you, no man hath been able to stand before
        you unto this day.
023:010 One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God,
        he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you.
023:011 Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the
        LORD your God.
023:012 Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant
        of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall
        make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to
        you:
023:013 Know for a certainty that the LORD your God will no more drive
        out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be
        snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and
        thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land
        which the LORD your God hath given you.
023:014 And, behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth: and
        ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one
        thing hath failed of all the good things which the LORD your
        God spake concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, and
        not one thing hath failed thereof.
023:015 Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are
        come upon you, which the LORD your God promised you; so shall
        the LORD bring upon you all evil things, until he have
        destroyed you from off this good land which the LORD your God
        hath given you.
023:016 When ye have transgressed the covenant of the LORD your God,
        which he commanded you, and have gone and served other gods,
        and bowed yourselves to them; then shall the anger of the LORD
        be kindled against you, and ye shall perish quickly from off
        the good land which he hath given unto you.
024:001 And Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and
        called for the elders of Israel, and for their heads, and for
        their judges, and for their officers; and they presented
        themselves before God.
024:002 And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God
        of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood
        in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father
        of Nachor: and they served other gods.
024:003 And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the
        flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and
        multiplied his seed, and gave him Isaac.
024:004 And I gave unto Isaac Jacob and Esau: and I gave unto Esau
        mount Seir, to possess it; but Jacob and his children went
        down into Egypt.
024:005 I sent Moses also and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt, according to
        that which I did among them: and afterward I brought you out.
024:006 And I brought your fathers out of Egypt: and ye came unto the
        sea; and the Egyptians pursued after your fathers with
        chariots and horsemen unto the Red sea.
024:007 And when they cried unto the LORD, he put darkness between you
        and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them, and covered
        them; and your eyes have seen what I have done in Egypt: and
        ye dwelt in the wilderness a long season.
024:008 And I brought you into the land of the Amorites, which dwelt
        on the other side Jordan; and they fought with you: and I gave
        them into your hand, that ye might possess their land; and I
        destroyed them from before you.
024:009 Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred
        against Israel, and sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to
        curse you:
024:010 But I would not hearken unto Balaam; therefore he blessed you
        still: so I delivered you out of his hand.
024:011 And you went over Jordan, and came unto Jericho: and the men
        of Jericho fought against you, the Amorites, and the
        Perizzites, and the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the
        Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; and I delivered
        them into your hand.
024:012 And I sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from
        before you, even the two kings of the Amorites; but not with
        thy sword, nor with thy bow.
024:013 And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and
        cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the
        vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat.
024:014 Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in
        truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the
        other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.
024:015 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you
        this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your
        fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or
        the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for
        me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
024:016 And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should
        forsake the LORD, to serve other gods;
024:017 For the LORD our God, he it is that brought us up and our
        fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage,
        and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us
        in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people
        through whom we passed:
024:018 And the LORD drave out from before us all the people, even the
        Amorites which dwelt in the land: therefore will we also serve
        the LORD; for he is our God.
024:019 And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the LORD: for
        he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive
        your transgressions nor your sins.
024:020 If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will
        turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done
        you good.
024:021 And the people said unto Joshua, Nay; but we will serve the
        LORD.
024:022 And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against
        yourselves that ye have chosen you the LORD, to serve him. And
        they said, We are witnesses.
024:023 Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are
        among you, and incline your heart unto the LORD God of Israel.
024:024 And the people said unto Joshua, The LORD our God will we
        serve, and his voice will we obey.
024:025 So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and set
        them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem.
024:026 And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God,
        and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that
        was by the sanctuary of the LORD.
024:027 And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall
        be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the
        LORD which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness
        unto you, lest ye deny your God.
024:028 So Joshua let the people depart, every man unto his
        inheritance.
024:029 And it came to pass after these things, that Joshua the son of
        Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being an hundred and ten
        years old.
024:030 And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in
        Timnathserah, which is in mount Ephraim, on the north side of
        the hill of Gaash.
024:031 And Israel served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the
        days of the elders that overlived Joshua, and which had known
        all the works of the LORD, that he had done for Israel.
024:032 And the bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel brought
        up out of Egypt, buried they in Shechem, in a parcel of ground
        which Jacob bought of the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem
        for an hundred pieces of silver: and it became the inheritance
        of the children of Joseph.
024:033 And Eleazar the son of Aaron died; and they buried him in a
        hill that pertained to Phinehas his son, which was given him
        in mount Ephraim.
