(20) Moses said to them, “If you do this, if you go to battle as shock-troops, at the instance of the LORD, (21) and every shock-fighter among you crosses the Jordan, at the instance of the LORD, until He has dispossessed His enemies before Him, (22) and the land has been subdued, at the instance of the LORD, and then you return—you shall be clear before the LORD and before Israel; and this land shall be your holding under the LORD. (23) But if you do not do so, you will have sinned against the LORD; and know that your sin will overtake you. (24) Build towns for your children and sheepfolds for your flocks, but do what you have promised.” (25) The Gadites and the Reubenites answered Moses, “Your servants will do as my lord commands. (26) Our children, our wives, our flocks, and all our other livestock will stay behind in the towns of Gilead; (27) while your servants, all those recruited for war, cross over, at the instance of the LORD, to engage in battle—as my lord orders.” (28) Then Moses gave instructions concerning them to Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun, and the family heads of the Israelite tribes. (29) Moses said to them, “If every shock-fighter among the Gadites and the Reubenites crosses the Jordan with you to do battle, at the instance of the LORD, and the land is subdued before you, you shall give them the land of Gilead as a holding. (30) But if they do not cross over with you as shock-troops, they shall receive holdings among you in the land of Canaan.” (31) The Gadites and the Reubenites said in reply, “Whatever the LORD has spoken concerning your servants, that we will do. (32) We ourselves will cross over as shock-troops, at the instance of the LORD, into the land of Canaan; and we shall keep our hereditary holding across the Jordan.” (33) So Moses assigned to them—to the Gadites, the Reubenites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh son of Joseph—the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites and the kingdom of King Og of Bashan, the land with its various cities and the territories of their surrounding towns. (34) The Gadites rebuilt Dibon, Ataroth, Aroer, (35) Atroth-shophan, Jazer, Jogbehah, (36) Beth-nimrah, and Beth-haran as fortified towns or as enclosures for flocks. (37) The Reubenites rebuilt Heshbon, Elealeh, Kiriathaim, (38) Nebo, Baal-meon—some names being changed—and Sibmah; they gave [their own] names to towns that they rebuilt. (39) The descendants of Machir son of Manasseh went to Gilead and captured it, dispossessing the Amorites who were there; (40) so Moses gave Gilead to Machir son of Manasseh, and he settled there. (41) Jair son of Manasseh went and captured their villages, which he renamed Havvoth-jair. (42) And Nobah went and captured Kenath and its dependencies, renaming it Nobah after himself. (1) These were the marches of the Israelites who started out from the land of Egypt, troop by troop, in the charge of Moses and Aaron. (2) Moses recorded the starting points of their various marches as directed by the LORD. Their marches, by starting points, were as follows: (3) They set out from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month. It was on the morrow of the passover offering that the Israelites started out defiantly, in plain view of all the Egyptians. (4) The Egyptians meanwhile were burying those among them whom the LORD had struck down, every first-born—whereby the LORD executed judgment on their gods. (5) The Israelites set out from Rameses and encamped at Succoth. (6) They set out from Succoth and encamped at Etham, which is on the edge of the wilderness. (7) They set out from Etham and turned about toward Pi-hahiroth, which faces Baal-zephon, and they encamped before Migdol. (8) They set out from Pene-hahiroth and passed through the sea into the wilderness; and they made a three-days’ journey in the wilderness of Etham and encamped at Marah. (9) They set out from Marah and came to Elim. There were twelve springs in Elim and seventy palm trees, so they encamped there. (10) They set out from Elim and encamped by the Sea of Reeds. (11) They set out from the Sea of Reeds and encamped in the wilderness of Sin. (12) They set out from the wilderness of Sin and encamped at Dophkah. (13) They set out from Dophkah and encamped at Alush. (14) They set out from Alush and encamped at Rephidim; it was there that the people had no water to drink. (15) They set out from Rephidim and encamped in the wilderness of Sinai. (16) They set out from the wilderness of Sinai and encamped at Kibroth-hattaavah. (17) They set out from Kibroth-hattaavah and encamped at Hazeroth. (18) They set out from Hazeroth and encamped at Rithmah. (19) They set out from Rithmah and encamped at Rimmon-perez. (20) They set out from Rimmon-perez and encamped at Libnah. (21) They set out from Libnah and encamped at Rissah. (22) They set out from Rissah and encamped at Kehelath. (23) They set out from Kehelath and encamped at Mount Shepher. (24) They set out from Mount Shepher and encamped at Haradah. (25) They set out from Haradah and encamped at Makheloth. (26) They set out from Makheloth and encamped at Tahath. (27) They set out from Tahath and encamped at Terah. (28) They set out from Terah and encamped at Mithkah. (29) They set out from Mithkah and encamped at Hashmonah. (30) They set out from Hashmonah and encamped at Moseroth. (31) They set out from Moseroth and encamped at Bene-jaakan. (32) They set out from Bene-jaakan and encamped at Hor-haggidgad. (33) They set out from Hor-haggidgad and encamped at Jotbath. (34) They set out from Jotbath and encamped at Abronah. (35) They set out from Abronah and encamped at Ezion-geber. (36) They set out from Ezion-geber and encamped in the wilderness of Zin, that is, Kadesh. (37) They set out from Kadesh and encamped at Mount Hor, on the edge of the land of Edom. (38) Aaron the priest ascended Mount Hor at the command of the LORD and died there, in the fortieth year after the Israelites had left the land of Egypt, on the first day of the fifth month. (39) Aaron was a hundred and twenty-three years old when he died on Mount Hor. (40) And the Canaanite, king of Arad, who dwelt in the Negeb, in the land of Canaan, learned of the coming of the Israelites. (41) They set out from Mount Hor and encamped at Zalmonah. (42) They set out from Zalmonah and encamped at Punon. (43) They set out from Punon and encamped at Oboth. (44) They set out from Oboth and encamped at Iye-abarim, in the territory of Moab. (45) They set out from Iyim and encamped at Dibon-gad. (46) They set out from Dibon-gad and encamped at Almon-diblathaim. (47) They set out from Almon-diblathaim and encamped in the hills of Abarim, before Nebo. (48) They set out from the hills of Abarim and encamped in the steppes of Moab, at the Jordan near Jericho; (49) they encamped by the Jordan from Beth-jeshimoth as far as Abel-shittim, in the steppes of Moab.

(1) When King Adoni-zedek of Jerusalem learned that Joshua had captured Ai and proscribed it, treating Ai and its king as he had treated Jericho and its king, and that, moreover, the people of Gibeon had come to terms with Israel and remained among them, (2) he was very frightened. For Gibeon was a large city, like one of the royal cities—in fact, larger than Ai—and all its men were warriors. (3) So King Adoni-zedek of Jerusalem sent this message to King Hoham of Hebron, King Piram of Jarmuth, King Japhia of Lachish, and King Debir of Eglon: (4) “Come up and help me defeat Gibeon; for it has come to terms with Joshua and the Israelites.” (5) The five Amorite kings—the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon, with all their armies—joined forces and marched on Gibeon, and encamped against it and attacked it. (6) The people of Gibeon thereupon sent this message to Joshua in the camp at Gilgal: “Do not fail your servants; come up quickly and aid us and deliver us, for all the Amorite kings of the hill country have gathered against us.” (7) So Joshua marched up from Gilgal with his whole fighting force, all the trained warriors. (8) The LORD said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid of them, for I will deliver them into your hands; not one of them shall withstand you.” (9) Joshua took them by surprise, marching all night from Gilgal. (10) The LORD threw them into a panic before Israel: [Joshua] inflicted a crushing defeat on them at Gibeon, pursued them in the direction of the Beth-horon ascent, and harried them all the way to Azekah and Makkedah. (11) While they were fleeing before Israel down the descent from Beth-horon, the LORD hurled huge stones on them from the sky, all the way to Azekah, and they perished; more perished from the hailstones than were killed by the Israelite weapons. (12) On that occasion, when the LORD routed the Amorites before the Israelites, Joshua addressed the LORD; he said in the presence of the Israelites: “Stand still, O sun, at Gibeon, O moon, in the Valley of Aijalon!” (13) And the sun stood still And the moon halted, While a nation wreaked judgment on its foes —as is written in the Book of Jashar. Thus the sun halted in midheaven, and did not press on to set, for a whole day; (14) for the LORD fought for Israel. Neither before nor since has there ever been such a day, when the LORD acted on words spoken by a man. (15) Then Joshua together with all Israel returned to the camp at Gilgal. (16) Meanwhile, those five kings fled and hid in a cave at Makkedah. (17) When it was reported to Joshua that the five kings had been found hiding in a cave at Makkedah, (18) Joshua ordered, “Roll large stones up against the mouth of the cave, and post men over it to keep guard over them. (19) But as for the rest of you, don’t stop, but press on the heels of your enemies and harass them from the rear. Don’t let them reach their towns, for the LORD your God has delivered them into your hands.” (20) When Joshua and the Israelites had finished dealing them a deadly blow, they were wiped out, except for some fugitives who escaped into the fortified towns. (21) The whole army returned in safety to Joshua in the camp at Makkedah; no one so much as snarled at the Israelites. (22) And now Joshua ordered, “Open the mouth of the cave, and bring those five kings out of the cave to me.” (23) This was done. Those five kings—the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon—were brought out to him from the cave. (24) And when the kings were brought out to Joshua, Joshua summoned all the men of Israel and ordered the army officers who had accompanied him, “Come forward and place your feet on the necks of these kings.” They came forward and placed their feet on their necks. (25) Joshua said to them, “Do not be frightened or dismayed; be firm and resolute. For this is what the LORD is going to do to all the enemies with whom you are at war.” (26) After that, Joshua had them put to death and impaled on five stakes, and they remained impaled on the stakes until evening. (27) At sunset Joshua ordered them taken down from the poles and thrown into the cave in which they had hidden. Large stones were placed over the mouth of the cave, [and there they are] to this very day. (28) At that time Joshua captured Makkedah and put it and its king to the sword, proscribing it and every person in it and leaving none that escaped. And he treated the king of Makkedah as he had treated the king of Jericho. (29) From Makkedah, Joshua proceeded with all Israel to Libnah, and he attacked it. (30) The LORD delivered it and its king into the hands of Israel; they put it and all the people in it to the sword, letting none escape. And he treated its king as he had treated the king of Jericho. (31) From Libnah, Joshua proceeded with all Israel to Lachish; he encamped against it and attacked it. (32) The LORD delivered Lachish into the hands of Israel. They captured it on the second day and put it and all the people in it to the sword, just as they had done to Libnah. (33) At that time King Horam of Gezer marched to the help of Lachish; but Joshua defeated him and his army, letting none of them escape. (34) From Lachish, Joshua proceeded with all Israel to Eglon; they encamped against it and attacked it. (35) They captured it on the same day and put it to the sword, proscribing all the people that were in it, as they had done to Lachish. (36) From Eglon, Joshua marched with all Israel to Hebron and attacked it. (37) They captured it and put it, its king, and all its towns, and all the people that were in it, to the sword. He let none escape, proscribing it and all the people in it, just as he had done in the case of Eglon. (38) Joshua and all Israel with him then turned back to Debir and attacked it. (39) He captured it and its king and all its towns. They put them to the sword and proscribed all the people in it. They let none escape; just as they had done to Hebron, and as they had done to Libnah and its king, so they did to Debir and its king. (40) Thus Joshua conquered the whole country: the hill country, the Negeb, the Shephelah, and the slopes, with all their kings; he let none escape, but proscribed everything that breathed—as the LORD, the God of Israel, had commanded. (41) Joshua conquered them from Kadesh-barnea to Gaza, all the land of Goshen, and up to Gibeon. (42) All those kings and their lands were conquered by Joshua at a single stroke, for the LORD, the God of Israel, fought for Israel. (43) Then Joshua, with all Israel, returned to the camp at Gilgal.

(1) Shiggaion of David, which he sang to the LORD, concerning Cush, a Benjaminite. (2) O LORD, my God, in You I seek refuge; deliver me from all my pursuers and save me, (3) lest, like a lion, they tear me apart, rending in pieces, and no one save me. (4) O LORD, my God, if I have done such things, if my hands bear the guilt of wrongdoing, (5) if I have dealt evil to my ally— I who rescued my foe without reward— (6) then let the enemy pursue and overtake me; let him trample my life to the ground, and lay my body in the dust. Selah. (7) Rise, O LORD, in Your anger; assert Yourself against the fury of my foes; bestir Yourself on my behalf; You have ordained judgment. (8) Let the assembly of peoples gather about You, with You enthroned above, on high. (9) The LORD judges the peoples; vindicate me, O LORD, for the righteousness and blamelessness that are mine. (10) Let the evil of the wicked come to an end, but establish the righteous; he who probes the mind and conscience is God the righteous. (11) I look to God to shield me; the deliverer of the upright. (12) God vindicates the righteous; God pronounces doom each day. (13) If one does not turn back, but whets his sword, bends his bow and aims it, (14) then against himself he readies deadly weapons, and makes his arrows sharp. (15) See, he hatches evil, conceives mischief, and gives birth to fraud. (16) He has dug a pit and deepened it, and will fall into the trap he made. (17) His mischief will recoil upon his own head; his lawlessness will come down upon his skull. (18) I will praise the LORD for His righteousness, and sing a hymn to the name of the LORD Most High.
