|1 And when Adoni-bezec king of Jerusalem heard that Joshua had taken Gai, and had destroyed it, as he did to Jericho and its king, even so they did to Gai and its king, and that the inhabitants of Gabaon had gone over to Joshua and Israel; 2 then they were greatly terrified by them, for [the king] knew that Gabaon [was] a great city, as one of the chief cities, and all its men [were] mighty. 3 So Adoni-bezec king of Jerusalem sent to Elam king of Hebron, and to Phidon king of Jerimuth, and to Jephtha king of Lachis, and to Dabin king of Odollam, saying, 4 Come up hither to me, and help me, and let us take Gabaon; for the Gabaonites have gone over to Joshua and to the children of Israel. 5 And the five kings of the Jebusites went up, the king of Jerusalem, and the king of Chebron, and the king of Jerimuth, and the king of Lachis, and the king of Odollam, they and all their people; and encamped around Gabaon, and besieged it. 6 And the inhabitants of Gabaon sent to Joshua into the camp to Galgala, saying, Slack not thy hands from thy servants: come up quickly to us, and help us, and rescue us; for all the kings of the Amorites who dwell in the hill country are gathered together against us. 7 And Joshua went up from Galgala, he and all the people of war with him, every one mighty in strength. 8 And the Lord said to Joshua, Fear them not, for I have delivered them into thy hands; there shall not one of them be left before you. 9 And when Joshua came suddenly upon them, he [had] advanced all the night out of Galgala. 10 And the Lord struck them with terror before the children of Israel; and the Lord destroyed them with a great slaughter at Gabaon; and they pursued them by the way of the going up of Oronin, and they smote them to Azeca and to Makeda. 11 And when they fled from the face of the children of Israel at the descent of Oronin, then the Lord cast upon them hailstones from heaven to Azeca; and they were more that died by the hailstones, than those whom the children of Israel slew with the sword in the battle. 12 Then Joshua spoke to the Lord, in the day in which the Lord delivered the Amorite into the power of Israel, when he destroyed them in Gabaon, and they were destroyed from before the children of Israel: and Joshua said, Let the sun stand over against Gabaon, and the moon over against the valley of Aelon. 13 And the sun and the moon stood still, until God executed vengeance on their enemies; and the sun stood still in the midst of heaven; it did not proceed to set till the end of one day. 14 And there was not such a day either before or after, so that God should hearken to a man, because the Lord fought on the side of Israel. 15 16 And these five kings fled, and hid themselves in a cave that is in Makeda. 17 And it was told Joshua, saying, The five kings have been found hid in the cave that is in Makeda. 18 And Joshua said, Roll stones to the mouth of the cave, and set men to watch over them. 19 But do not ye stand, but pursue after your enemies, and attack the rear of them, and do not suffer them to enter into their cities; for the Lord our God has delivered them into our hands. 20 And it came to pass when Joshua and all Israel ceased destroying them utterly with a very great slaughter, that they that escaped took refuge in the strong cities. 21 And all the people returned safe to Joshua to Makeda; and no one of the children of Israel murmured with his tongue. 22 And Joshua said, Open the cave, and bring out these five kings out of the cave. 23 And they brought out the five kings out of the cave, the king of Jerusalem, and the king of Chebron, and the king of Jerimuth, and the king of Lachis, and the king of Odollam. 24 And when they brought them out to Joshua, then Joshua called together all Israel, and the chiefs of the army that went with him, saying to them, Come forward and set your feet on their necks; and they came and set their feet on their necks. 25 And Joshua said to them, Do not fear them, neither be cowardly; be courageous and strong, for thus the Lord will do to all your enemies, against whom ye fight. 26 And Joshua slew them, and hanged them on five trees; and they hung upon the trees until the evening. 27 And it came to pass toward the setting of the sun, Joshua commanded, and they took them down from the trees, and cast them into the cave into which they [had] fled for refuge, and rolled stones to the cave, [which remain] till this day. 28 And they took Makeda on that day, and slew the inhabitants with the edge of the sword, and they utterly destroyed every living thing that was in it; and there was none left in it that was preserved and had escaped; and they did to the king of Makeda, as they did to the king of Jericho. 29 And Joshua and all Israel with him departed out of Makeda to Lebna, and besieged Lebna. 30 And the Lord delivered it into the hands of Israel: and they took it, and its king, and slew the inhabitants with the edge of the sword, and every thing breathing in it; and there was not left in it any that survived and escaped; and they did to its king, as they did to the king of Jericho. 31 And Joshua and all Israel with him departed from Lebna to Lachis, and he encamped about it, and besieged it. 32 And the Lord delivered Lachis into the hands of Israel; and they took it on the second day, and they put the inhabitants to death with the edge of the sword, and utterly destroyed it, as they had done to Lebna. 33 Then Elam the king of Gazer went up to help Lachis; and Joshua smote him and his people with the edge of the sword, until there was not left to him one that was preserved and escaped. 34 And Joshua and all Israel with him departed from Lachis to Odollam, and he besieged it and took it. 35 And the Lord delivered it into the hand of Israel; and he took it on that day, and slew the inhabitants with the edge of the sword, and slew every thing breathing in it, as they did to Lachis. 36 And Joshua and all Israel with him departed to Chebron, and encamped about it. 37 And he smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the living creatures that were in it; there was no one preserved: they destroyed it and all things in it, as they did to Odollam. 38 And Joshua and all Israel returned to Dabir; and they encamped about it; 39 and they took it, and its king, and its villages: and he smote it with the edge of the sword, and they destroyed it, and every thing breathing in it; and they did not leave in it any one that was preserved: as they did to Chebron and her king, so they did to Dabir and her king. 40 And Joshua smote all the land of the hill country, and Nageb and the plain country, and Asedoth, and her kings, they did not leave of them one that was saved: and they utterly destroyed every thing that had the breath of life, as the Lord God of Israel commanded, 41 from Cades Barne to Gaza, all Gosom, as far as Gabaon. 42 And Joshua smote, once for all, all their kings, and their land, because the Lord God of Israel fought on the side of Israel.||
ΩΣ δὲ ἤκουσεν ᾿Αδωνιβεζὲκ βασιλεὺς ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ὅτι ἔλαβεν ᾿Ιησοῦς τὴν Γαὶ καὶ ἐξωλόθρευσεν αὐτήν, ὃν τρόπον ἐποίησαν τὴν ῾Ιεριχὼ καὶ τὸν βασιλέα αὐτῆς, οὕτως ἐποίησαν καὶ τὴν Γαὶ καὶ τὸν βασιλέα αὐτῆς, καὶ ὅτι ηὐτομόλησαν οἱ κατοικοῦντες Γαβαὼν πρὸς ᾿Ιησοῦν καὶ πρὸς ᾿Ισραήλ, 2 καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν ἀπ’ αὐτῶν σφόδρα· ἤδει γὰρ ὅτι πόλις μεγάλη Γαβαών, ὡσεὶ μία τῶν μητροπόλεων, καὶ πάντες οἱ ἄνδρες αὐτῆς ἰσχυροί· 3 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ᾿Αδωνιβεζὲκ βασιλεὺς ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ πρὸς ᾿Ελὰμ βασιλέα Χεβρὼν καὶ πρὸς Φιδὼν βασιλέα ῾Ιεριμοὺθ καὶ πρὸς ᾿Ιεφθὰ βασιλέα Λαχὶς καὶ πρὸς Δαβὶν βασιλέα ᾿Οδολλὰμ λέγων· 4 δεῦτε, ἀνάβητε πρός με καὶ βοηθήσατέ μοι, καὶ ἐκπολεμήσωμεν Γαβαών· ηὐτομόλησαν γὰρ πρὸς ᾿Ιησοῦν καὶ πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς ᾿Ισραήλ. 5 καὶ ἀνέβησαν οἱ πέντε βασιλεῖς τῶν ᾿Ιεβουσαίων, βασιλεὺς ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ βασιλεὺς Χεβρὼν καὶ βασιλεὺς ῾Ιεριμοὺθ καὶ βασιλεὺς Λαχὶς καὶ βασιλεὺς ᾿Οδολλάμ, αὐτοὶ καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς αὐτῶν καὶ περιεκάθισαν τὴν Γαβαὼν καὶ ἐξεπολιόρκουν αὐτήν. 6 καὶ ἀπέστειλαν οἱ κατοικοῦντες Γαβαὼν πρὸς ᾿Ιησοῦν εἰς τὴν παρεμβολὴν ᾿Ισραὴλ εἰς Γάλγαλα λέγοντες· μὴ ἐκλύσῃς τὰς χεῖράς σου ἀπὸ τῶν παίδων σου· ἀνάβηθι πρὸς ἡμᾶς τὸ τάχος καὶ βοήθησον ἡμῖν καὶ ἐξελοῦ ἡμᾶς· ὅτι συνηγμένοι εἰσὶν ἐφ’ ἡμᾶς πάντες οἱ βασιλεῖς τῶν ᾿Αμορραίων, οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὴν ὀρεινήν. 7 καὶ ἀνέβη ᾿Ιησοῦς ἐκ Γαλγάλων, αὐτὸς καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ὁ πολεμιστὴς μετ’ αὐτοῦ, πᾶς δυνατὸς ἐν ἰσχύϊ. 8 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρὸς ᾿Ιησοῦν· μὴ φοβηθῇς αὐτούς, εἰς γὰρ τὰς χεῖράς σου παραδέδωκα αὐτούς, οὐχ ὑπολειφθήσεται ἐξ αὐτῶν οὐδεὶς ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν. 9 καὶ ἐπεὶ παρεγένετο ᾿Ιησοῦς ἐπ’ αὐτοὺςἄφνω, ὅλην τὴν νύκτα εἰσεπορεύθη ἐκ Γαλγάλων. 10 καὶ ἐξέστησεν αὐτοὺς Κύριος ἀπὸ προσώπου τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ συνέτριψεν αὐτοὺς Κύριος συντρίψει μεγάλῃ ἐν Γαβαών, καὶ κατεδίωξαν αὐτοὺς ὁδὸν ἀναβάσεως ᾿Ωρωνὶν καὶ κατέκοπτον αὐτοὺς ἕως ᾿Αζηκὰ καὶ ἕως Μακηδά. 11 ἐν δὲ τῷ φεύγειν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ προσώπου τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐπὶ τῆς καταβάσεως ᾿Ωρωνὶν καὶ Κύριος ἐπέρριψεν αὐτοῖς λίθους χαλάζης ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἕως ᾿Αζηκά, καὶ ἐγένοντο πλείους οἱ ἀποθανόντες διὰ τοὺς λίθους τῆς χαλάζης ἢ οὓς ἀπέκτειναν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ μαχαίρᾳ ἐν τῷ πολέμῳ.
12 Τότε ἐλάλησεν ᾿Ιησοῦς πρὸς Κύριον, ᾗ ἡμέρᾳ παρέδωκεν ὁ Θεὸς τὸν ᾿Αμορραῖον ὑποχείριον ᾿Ισραήλ, ἡνίκα συνέτριψεν αὐτοὺς ἐν Γαβαὼν καὶ συνετρίβησαν ἀπὸ προσώπου υἱῶν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιησοῦς· στήτω ὁ ἥλιος κατὰ Γαβαὼν καὶ ἡ σελήνη κατὰ φάραγγα Αἰλών. 13 καὶ ἔστη ὁ ἥλιος καὶ ἡ σελήνη ἐν στάσει, ἕως ἠμύνατο ὁ Θεὸς τοὺς ἐχθροὺς αὐτῶν. καὶ ἔστη ὁ ἥλιος κατὰ μέσον τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, οὐ προεπορεύετο εἰς δυσμὰς εἰς τέλος ἡμέρας μιᾶς. 14 καὶ οὐκ ἐγένετο ἡμέρα τοιαύτη οὐδὲ τὸ πρότερον οὐδὲ τὸ ἔσχατον, ὥστε ἐπακοῦσαι Θεὸν ἀνθρώπου, ὅτι Κύριος συνεξεπολέμησε τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ.
16 Καὶ ἔφυγον οἱ πέντε βασιλεῖς οὗτοι καὶ κατεκρύβησαν εἰς τὸ σπήλαιον τὸ ἐν Μακηδά. 17 καὶ ἀπηγγέλη τῷ ᾿Ιησοῦ λέγοντες· εὕρηνται οἱ πέντε βασιλεῖς κεκρυμμένοι ἐν τῷ σπηλαίῳ τῷ ἐν Μακηδά. 18 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιησοῦς· κυλίσατε λίθους ἐπὶ τὸ στόμα τοῦ σπηλαίου καὶ καταστήσατε ἄνδρας φυλάσσειν ἐπ’ αὐτούς, 19 ὑμεῖς δὲ μὴ ἑστήκατε καταδιώκοντες ὀπίσω τῶν ἐχθρῶν ὑμῶν καὶ καταλάβετε τὴν οὐραγίαν αὐτῶν καὶ μὴ ἀφῆτε εἰσελθεῖν εἰς τὰς πόλεις αὐτῶν· παρέδωκε γὰρ αὐτοὺς Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν εἰς τὰς χεῖρας ἡμῶν. 20 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς κατέπαυσεν ᾿Ιησοῦς καὶ πᾶς υἱὸς ᾿Ισραὴλ κόπτοντες αὐτοὺς κοπὴν μεγάλην σφόδρα ἕως εἰς τέλος, καὶ οἱ διασῳζόμενοι διεσώθησαν εἰς τὰς πόλεις τὰς ὀχυράς, 21 καὶ ἀπεστράφη πᾶς ὁ λαὸς πρὸς ᾿Ιησοῦν εἰς Μακηδὰ ὑγιεῖς, καὶ οὐκ ἔγρυξεν οὐδεὶς τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραὴλ τῇ γλώσσῃ αὐτοῦ. 22 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιησοῦς· ἀνοίξατε τὸ σπήλαιον καὶ ἐξαγάγετε τοὺς πέντε βασιλεῖς τούτους ἐκ τοῦ σπηλαίου. 23 καὶ ἐξηγάγοσαν τοὺς πέντε βασιλεῖς ἐκ τοῦ σπηλαίου, τὸν βασιλέα ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ τὸν βασιλέα Χεβρὼν καὶ τὸν βασιλέα ῾Ιεριμοὺθ καὶ τὸν βασιλέα Λαχὶς καὶ τὸν βασιλέα ᾿Οδολλάμ. 24 καὶ ἐπεὶ ἐξήγαγον αὐτοὺς πρὸς ᾿Ιησοῦν, καὶ συνεκάλεσεν ᾿Ιησοῦς πάντα ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ τοὺς ἐναρχομένους τοῦ πολέμου τοὺς συμπορευομένους αὐτῷ, λέγων αὐτοῖς· προπορεύεσθε καὶ ἐπίθετε τοὺς πόδας ὑμῶν ἐπὶ τοὺς τραχήλους αὐτῶν. καὶ προσελθόντες ἐπέθηκαν τοὺς πόδας αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τοὺς τραχήλους αὐτῶν. 25 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιησοῦς πρὸς αὐτούς· μὴ φοβηθῆτε αὐτοὺς μηδὲ δειλιάσητε· ἀνδρίζεσθε καὶ ἰσχύετε, ὅτι οὕτω ποιήσει Κύριος πᾶσι τοῖς ἐχθροῖς ὑμῶν, οὓς ὑμεῖς καταπολεμεῖτε αὐτούς. 26 καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν αὐτοὺς ᾿Ιησοῦς καὶ ἐκρέμασεν αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ πέντε ξύλων, καὶ ἦσαν κρεμάμενοι ἐπὶ τῶν ξύλων ἕως ἑσπέρας. 27 καὶ ἐγενήθη πρὸς ἡλίου δυσμὰς ἐνετείλατο ᾿Ιησοῦς καὶ καθεῖλον αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ τῶν ξύλων καὶ ἔρριψαν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὸ σπήλαιον, εἰς ὃ κατεφύγοσαν ἐκεῖ, καὶ ἐπεκύλισαν λίθους ἐπὶ τὸ σπήλαιον ἕως τῆς σήμερον ἡμέρας.
28 Καὶ τὴν Μακηδὰ ἐλάβοσαν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ ἐφόνευσαν αὐτὴν ἐν στόματι ξίφους καὶ ἐξωλόθρευσαν πᾶν ἐμπνέον, ὃ ἦν ἐν αὐτῇ, καὶ οὐ κατελείφθη οὐδεὶς ἐν αὐτῇ διασεσωσμένος καὶ διαπεφευγώς· καὶ ἐποίησαν τῷ βασιλεῖ Μακηδὰ ὃν τρόπον ἐποίησαν τῷ βασιλεῖ ῾Ιεριχώ. 29 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ᾿Ιησοῦς καὶ πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ μετ’ αὐτοῦ ἐκ Μακηδὰ εἰς Λεβνὰ καὶ ἐπολιόρκει Λεβνά. 30 καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτὴν Κύριος εἰς χεῖρας ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἔλαβον αὐτὴν καὶ τὸν βασιλέα αὐτῆς καὶ ἐφόνευσαν αὐτὴν ἐν στόματι ξίφους καὶ πᾶν ἐμπνέον ἐν αὐτῇ, καὶ οὐ κατελείφθη ἐν αὐτῇ διασεσωσμένος καὶ διαπεφευγώς· καὶ ἐποίησαν τῷ βασιλεῖ αὐτῆς ὃν τρόπον ἐποίησαν τῷ βασιλεῖ ῾Ιεριχώ.
31 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ᾿Ιησοῦς καὶ πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ μετ’ αὐτοῦ ἐκ Λεβνὰ εἰς Λαχὶς καὶ περιεκάθισεν αὐτὴν καὶ ἐπολιόρκει αὐτήν. 32 καὶ παρέδωκε Κύριος τὴν Λαχὶς εἰς τὰς χεῖρας ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἔλαβεν αὐτὴν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ δευτέρᾳ καὶ ἐφόνευσαν αὐτὴν ἐν στόματι ξίφους καὶ ἐξωλόθρευσαν αὐτήν, ὃν τρόπον ἐποίησαν τὴν Λεβνά. 33 τότε ἀνέβη ᾿Ελὰμ βασιλεὺς Γαζὲρ βοηθήσων τῇ Λαχίς, καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν ᾿Ιησοῦς ἐν στόματι ξίφους καὶ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ἕως τοῦ μὴ καταλειφθῆναι αὐτῶν σεσωσμένον καὶ διαπεφευγότα. 34 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ᾿Ιησοῦς καὶ πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ μετ’ αὐτοῦ ἐκ Λαχὶς εἰς ᾿Οδολλὰμ καὶ περιεκάθισεν αὐτὴν καὶ ἐξεπολιόρκησεν αὐτήν. 35 καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτὴν Κύριος ἐν χειρὶ ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἔλαβεν αὐτὴν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ ἐφόνευσεν αὐτὴν ἐν στόματι ξίφους, καὶ πᾶν ἐμπνέον ἐν αὐτῇ ἐφόνευσαν, ὃν τρόπον ἐποίησαν τῇ Λαχίς. 36 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ᾿Ιησοῦς καὶ πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ μετ’ αὐτοῦ εἰς Χεβρὼν καὶ περιεκάθισεν αὐτήν. 37 καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὴν ἐν στόματι ξίφους καὶ πᾶν τὸ ἐμπνέον, ὅσα ἦν ἐν αὐτῇ, οὐκ ἦν διασεσωσμένος· ὃν τρόπον ἐποίησαν τὴν ᾿Οδολλάμ, ἐξωλόθρευσαν αὐτὴν καὶ ὅσα ἦν ἐν αὐτῇ. 38 καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν ᾿Ιησοῦς καὶ πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ εἰς Δαβὶρ καὶ περικαθίσαντες αὐτὴν 39 ἔλαβον αὐτὴν καὶ τὸν βασιλέα αὐτῆς καὶ τὰς κώμας αὐτῆς καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὴν ἐν στόματι ξίφους καὶ ἐξωλόθρευσαν αὐτὴν καὶ πᾶν ἐμπνέον ἐν αὐτῇ καὶ οὐ κατέλιπον αὐτῇ οὐδένα διασεσωσμένον· ὃν τρόπον ἐποίησαν τῇ Χεβρὼν καὶ τῷ βασιλεῖ αὐτῆς, οὕτως ἐποίησαν τῇ Δαβὶρ καὶ τῷ βασιλεῖ αὐτῆς. 40 καὶ ἐπάταξεν ᾿Ιησοῦς πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν τῆς ὀρεινῆς καὶ τὴν Ναγὲβ καὶ τὴν πεδινὴν καὶ τὴν ᾿Ασηδὼθ καὶ τοὺς βασιλεῖς αὐτῆς, οὐ κατέλιπον αὐτῶν σεσωσμένον· καὶ πᾶν ἐμπνέον ζωῆς ἐξωλόθρευσεν, ὃν τρόπον ἐνετείλατο Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραήλ, 41ἀπὸ Κάδης Βαρνῆ ἕως Γάζης, πᾶσαν τὴν Γοσὸμ ἕως τῆς Γαβαών, 42 καὶ πάντας τοὺς βασιλεῖς αὐτῶν καὶ τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν ἐπάταξεν ᾿Ιησοῦς εἰσάπαξ, ὅτι Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραὴλ συνεπολέμει τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ.
