Numbers 21:33And the Lord heeded the voice of Israel and gave over the Canaanites, and they devoted them and their cities to destruction. So the name of the place was called a Hormah. ▼
▼ Hormah means destruction
King Sihon Defeated21Then c Israel sent messengers to Sihon king of the Amorites, saying, 22 d “Let me pass through your land. We will not turn aside into field or vineyard. We will not drink the water of a well. We will go by the King’s Highway until we have passed through your territory.” 23 e But Sihon would not allow Israel to pass through his territory. He gathered all his people together and went out against Israel to the wilderness and f came to Jahaz and fought against Israel. 24 g And Israel defeated him with the edge of the sword and took possession of his land from the Arnon to the h Jabbok, as far as to the Ammonites, for the border of the Ammonites was strong. 25And Israel took all these cities, and Israel settled in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all its villages. 26For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab and taken all his land out of his hand, as far as the Arnon. 27Therefore the i ballad singers say, “Come to j Heshbon, let it be built;
let the city of Sihon be established.
28For k fire came out from l Heshbon,
flame from the city of Sihon.
It devoured m Ar of Moab,
and swallowed ▼
▼Septuagint; Hebrew the lords ofthe heights of the Arnon.
29 o Woe to you, O Moab!
You are undone, O people of p Chemosh!
He has made his sons fugitives,
and his daughters captives,
to an Amorite king, Sihon.
30So we overthrew them;
Heshbon, as far as q Dibon, perished;
and we laid waste as far as Nophah;
fire spread as far as r Medeba.” ▼
▼Compare Samaritan and Septuagint; Hebrew and we laid waste as far as Nophah, which is as far as Medeba
King Og Defeated31Thus Israel lived in the land of the Amorites. 32And Moses sent to spy out t Jazer, and they captured its villages and dispossessed the Amorites who were there. 33Then they turned and went up by the way to Bashan. And Og the king of Bashan came out against them, he and all his people, to battle u at Edrei. 34 v But the Lord said to Moses, “Do not fear him, for I have given him into your hand, and all his people, and his land. And w you shall do to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who lived at Heshbon.” 35So they defeated him and his sons and all his people, until he had no survivor left. And they possessed his land.
Joshua 10:10-4310 x And the Lord threw them into a panic before Israel, who ▼
▼Or and hestruck them with a great blow at Gibeon and chased them by the way of z the ascent of Beth-horon and struck them as far as Azekah and Makkedah. 11And as they fled before Israel, while they were aa going down the ascent of Beth-horon, ab the Lord threw down large stones from heaven on them as far as Azekah, and they died. There were more who died because of the hailstones than the sons of Israel killed with the sword. 12At that time Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord gave the Amorites over to the sons of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, ac “Sun, stand still at Gibeon,
and moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.”
13And the sun stood still, and the moon stopped,
until the nation took vengeance on their enemies.
Is this not written in the Book of Jashar? The sun stopped in the midst of heaven and did not hurry to set for about a whole day. 14 ad There has been no day like it before or since, when the Lord heeded the voice of a man, for ae the Lord fought for Israel. 15So af Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to the camp at Gilgal.
Five Amorite Kings Executed16These five kings fled and hid themselves in the cave at ag Makkedah. 17And it was told to Joshua, “The five kings have been found, hidden in the cave at Makkedah.” 18And Joshua said, “Roll large stones against the mouth of the cave and set men by it to guard them, 19but do not stay there yourselves. Pursue your enemies; ah attack their rear guard. Do not let them enter their cities, for the Lord your God has given them into your hand.” 20When Joshua and the sons of Israel had finished striking them with a great blow ai until they were wiped out, and when the remnant that remained of them had entered into the fortified cities, 21then all the people returned safe to Joshua in the camp at Makkedah. aj Not a man moved his tongue against any of the people of Israel. 22Then Joshua said, “Open the mouth of the cave and bring those five kings out to me from the cave.” 23And they did so, and brought those five kings out to him from the cave, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon. 24And when they brought those kings out to Joshua, Joshua summoned all the men of Israel and said to the chiefs of the men of war who had gone with him, “Come near; put your feet on the necks of these kings.” Then they came near and put their feet on their necks. 25And Joshua said to them, ak “Do not be afraid or dismayed; be strong and courageous. al For thus the Lord will do to all your enemies against whom you fight.” 26And afterward Joshua struck them and put them to death, and he hanged them on five trees. And am they hung on the trees until evening. 27But at the time of the going down of the sun, Joshua commanded, and an they took them down from the trees and threw them into the cave where they had hidden themselves, and they set large stones against the mouth of the cave, which remain to this very day. 28As for ao Makkedah, Joshua captured it on that day and struck it, and its king, with the edge of the sword. He devoted to destruction every person in it; he left none remaining. And he did to the king of Makkedah ap just as he had done to the king of Jericho.
Conquest of Southern Canaan29Then Joshua and all Israel with him passed on from Makkedah to aq Libnah and fought against Libnah. 30And the Lord gave it also and its king into the hand of Israel. And he struck it with the edge of the sword, and every person in it; he left none remaining in it. And he did to its king ar as he had done to the king of Jericho. 31Then Joshua and all Israel with him passed on from Libnah to as Lachish and laid siege to it and fought against it. 32And the Lord gave Lachish into the hand of Israel, and he captured it on the second day and struck it with the edge of the sword, and every person in it, as he had done to Libnah. 33Then Horam king of at Gezer came up to help Lachish. And Joshua struck him and his people, until he left none remaining. 34Then Joshua and all Israel with him passed on from Lachish to au Eglon. And they laid siege to it and fought against it. 35And they captured it on that day, and struck it with the edge of the sword. And he devoted every person in it to destruction that day, as he had done to Lachish. 36Then Joshua and all Israel with him went up from Eglon to av Hebron. And they fought against it 37and captured it and struck it with the edge of the sword, and its king and its towns, and every person in it. He left none remaining, as he had done to Eglon, and devoted it to destruction and every person in it. 38Then Joshua and all Israel with him turned back to aw Debir and fought against it 39and he captured it with its king and all its towns. And they struck them with the edge of the sword and devoted to destruction every person in it; he left none remaining. Just as he had done to Hebron and to Libnah and its king, so he did to Debir and to its king. 40So Joshua struck the whole land, the hill country and the Negeb and the lowland ax and the slopes, and all their kings. He left none remaining, ay but devoted to destruction all that breathed, just as the Lord God of Israel commanded. 41And Joshua struck them from az Kadesh-barnea as far as Gaza, and all the country of ba Goshen, as far as Gibeon. 42And Joshua captured all these kings and their land at one time, bb because the Lord God of Israel fought for Israel. 43 bc Then Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to the camp at Gilgal.
