Now it came to pass, when Adonizedek king of Jerusalem had heard2 how Joshua had taken1 Ai, and had utterly destroyed55 it; as he had done1 to Jericho and her king, so he had done1 to Ai and her king; and how the inhabitants6 of Gibeon had made peace52 with Israel, and were among them;
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, gathered11 themselves together, and went up,4 they and all their hosts, and encamped4 before Gibeon, and made war11 against it.
And the men of Gibeon sent4 unto Joshua to the camp to Gilgal, saying,2 Slack55 not thy hand from thy servants; come up3 to us quickly, and save54 us, and help3 us: for all the kings of the Amorites that dwell6 in the mountains are gathered together8 against us.
And the LORD discomfited4 them before Israel, and slew55 them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, and chased4 them along the way that goeth up to Bethhoron, and smote55 them to Azekah, and unto Makkedah.
And it came to pass, as they fled2 from before Israel, [and] were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD cast down52 great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died:4 [they were] more which died1 with hailstones 68 than [they] whom the children of Israel slew1 with the sword.
Then spake17 Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up2 the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said4 in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still3 upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.
And the sun stood still,4 and the moon stayed,1 until the people had avenged4 themselves upon their enemies.6 [Is] not this written7 in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still4 in the midst of heaven, and hasted1 not to go down2 about a whole day.
And it came to pass, when Joshua and the children of Israel had made an end15 of slaying53 them with a very great slaughter, till they were consumed,2 that the rest [which] remained1 of them entered4 into fenced cities.
And it came to pass, when they brought out53 those kings unto Joshua, that Joshua called4 for all the men of Israel, and said4 unto the captains of the men of war which went1 with him, Come near,3 put3 your feet upon the necks of these kings. And they came near,4 and put4 their feet upon the necks of them.
And it came to pass at the time of the going down2 of the sun, [that] Joshua commanded,14 and they took them down55 off the trees, and cast55 them into the cave wherein they had been hid,8 and laid4 great stones in the cave's mouth, [which remain] until this very day.
And that day Joshua took1 Makkedah, and smote55 it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof he utterly destroyed,52 them, and all the souls that [were] therein; he let52 none remain: and he did4 to the king of Makkedah as he did1 unto the king of Jericho.
And the LORD delivered4 it also, and the king thereof, into the hand of Israel; and he smote55 it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that [were] therein; he let52 none remain in it; but did4 unto the king thereof as he did1 unto the king of Jericho.
And the LORD delivered4 Lachish into the hand of Israel, which took4 it on the second day, and smote55 it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that [were] therein, according to all that he had done1 to Libnah.
And they took4 it, and smote55 it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof, and all the souls that [were] therein; he left52 none remaining, according to all that he had done1 to Eglon; but destroyed it utterly,55 and all the souls that [were] therein.
And he took4 it, and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof; and they smote55 them with the edge of the sword, and utterly destroyed55 all the souls that [were] therein; he left52 none remaining: as he had done1 to Hebron, so he did1 to Debir, and to the king thereof; as he had done1 also to Libnah, and to her king.
So Joshua smote55 all the country of the hills, and of the south, and of the vale, and of the springs, and all their kings: he left52 none remaining, but utterly destroyed52 all that breathed, as the LORD God of Israel commanded.14
