Joshua

Chapter 8

  1. 1. And the LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    unto Joshua,
    H3091
    Fear
    H3372
    not, neither be thou dismayed:
    H2865
    take
    H3947
    all the people
    H5971
    of war
    H4421
    with thee, and arise,
    H6965
    go up
    H5927
    to Ai:
    H5857
    see,
    H7200
    I have given
    H5414
    into thy hand
    H3027
    the king
    H4428
    of Ai,
    H5857
    and his people,
    H5971
    and his city,
    H5892
    and his land:
    H776
  2. 2. And thou shalt do
    H6213
    to Ai
    H5857
    and her king
    H4428
    as thou didst
    H6213
    unto Jericho
    H3405
    and her king:
    H4428
    only the spoil
    H7998
    thereof, and the cattle
    H929
    thereof, shall ye take for a prey
    H962
    unto yourselves: lay
    H7760
    thee an ambush
    H693
    for the city
    H5892
    behind
    H310
    it.
  3. 3. So Joshua
    H3091
    arose,
    H6965
    and all the people
    H5971
    of war,
    H4421
    to go up
    H5927
    against Ai:
    H5857
    and Joshua
    H3091
    chose out
    H977
    thirty
    H7970
    thousand
    H505
    mighty
    H1368
    men
    H376
    of valour,
    H2428
    and sent them away
    H7971
    by night.
    H3915
  4. 4. And he commanded
    H6680
    them, saying,
    H559
    Behold,
    H7200
    ye shall lie in wait
    H693
    against the city,
    H5892
    even behind
    H310
    the city:
    H5892
    go
    H7368
    not very
    H3966
    far
    H7368
    from the city,
    H5892
    but be ye all ready:
    H3559
  5. 5. And I, and all the people
    H5971
    that are with me, will approach
    H7126
    unto the city:
    H5892
    and it shall come to pass, when they come out
    H3318
    against
    H7125
    us, as at the first,
    H7223
    that we will flee
    H5127
    before
    H6440
    them,
  6. 6. (For they will come out
    H3318
    after
    H310
    us) till we have drawn
    H5423
    them from the city;
    H5892
    for they will say,
    H559
    They flee
    H5127
    before
    H6440
    us, as at the first:
    H7223
    therefore we will flee
    H5127
    before
    H6440
    them.
  7. 7. Then ye shall rise up
    H6965
    from the ambush,
    H693
    and seize
    H3423
    upon the city:
    H5892
    for the LORD
    H3068
    your God
    H430
    will deliver
    H5414
    it into your hand.
    H3027
  8. 8. And it shall be, when ye have taken
    H8610
    the city,
    H5892
    that ye shall set
    H3341
    the city
    H5892
    on fire:
    H784
    according to the commandment
    H1697
    of the LORD
    H3068
    shall ye do.
    H6213
    See,
    H7200
    I have commanded
    H6680
    you.
  9. 9. Joshua
    H3091
    therefore sent them forth:
    H7971
    and they went
    H3212
    to lie in ambush,
    H3993
    and abode
    H3427
    between Bethel
    H1008
    and Ai,
    H5857
    on the west side
    H3220
    of Ai:
    H5857
    but Joshua
    H3091
    lodged
    H3885
    that night
    H3915
    among
    H8432
    the people.
    H5971
  10. 10. And Joshua
    H3091
    rose up early
    H7925
    in the morning,
    H1242
    and numbered
    H6485
    the people,
    H5971
    and went up,
    H5927
    he and the elders
    H2205
    of Israel,
    H3478
    before
    H6440
    the people
    H5971
    to Ai.
    H5857
  11. 11. And all the people,
    H5971
    even the people of war
    H4421
    that were with him, went up,
    H5927
    and drew nigh,
    H5066
    and came
    H935
    before the city,
    H5892
    and pitched
    H2583
    on the north side
    H6828
    of Ai:
    H5857
    now there was a valley
    H1516
    between them and Ai.
    H5857
  12. 12. And he took
    H3947
    about five
    H2568
    thousand
    H505
    men,
    H376
    and set
    H7760
    them to lie in ambush
    H693
    between Bethel
    H1008
    and Ai,
    H5857
    on the west side
    H3220
    of the city.
    H5857
    H5892
  13. 13. And when they had set
    H7760
    the people,
    H5971
    even all the host
    H4264
    that was on the north
    H6828
    of the city,
    H5892
    and their liers in wait
    H6119
    on the west
    H3220
    of the city,
    H5892
    Joshua
    H3091
    went
    H3212
    that night
    H3915
    into the midst
    H8432
    of the valley.
    H6010
  14. 14. And it came to pass, when the king
    H4428
    of Ai
    H5857
    saw
    H7200
    it, that they hasted
    H4116
    and rose up early,
    H7925
    and the men
    H582
    of the city
    H5892
    went out
    H3318
    against
    H7125
    Israel
    H3478
    to battle,
    H4421
    he and all his people,
    H5971
    at a time appointed,
    H4150
    before
    H6440
    the plain;
    H6160
    but he wist
    H3045
    not that there were liers in ambush
    H693
    against him behind
    H310
    the city.
    H5892
  15. 15. And Joshua
    H3091
    and all Israel
    H3478
    made as if they were beaten
    H5060
    before
    H6440
    them, and fled
    H5127
    by the way
    H1870
    of the wilderness.
    H4057
  16. 16. And all the people
    H5971
    that were in Ai
    H5857
    H5892
    were called
    H2199
    together to pursue
    H7291
    after
    H310
    them: and they pursued
    H7291
    after
    H310
    Joshua,
    H3091
    and were drawn away
    H5423
    from the city.
    H5892
  17. 17. And there was not a man
    H376
    left
    H7604
    in Ai
    H5857
    or Bethel,
    H1008
    that went not out
    H3318
    after
    H310
    Israel:
    H3478
    and they left
    H5800
    the city
    H5892
    open,
    H6605
    and pursued
    H7291
    after Israel.
    H3478
  18. 18. And the LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    unto Joshua,
    H3091
    Stretch out
    H5186
    the spear
    H3591
    that is in thy hand
    H3027
    toward Ai;
    H5857
    for I will give
    H5414
    it into thine hand.
    H3027
    And Joshua
    H3091
    stretched out
    H5186
    the spear
    H3591
    that he had in his hand
    H3027
    toward the city.
    H5892
  19. 19. And the ambush
    H693
    arose
    H6965
    quickly
    H4120
    out of their place,
    H4725
    and they ran
    H7323
    as soon as he had stretched out
    H5186
    his hand:
    H3027
    and they entered
    H935
    into the city,
    H5892
    and took
    H3920
    it, and hasted
    H4116
    and set
    H3341
    the city
    H5892
    on fire.
    H784
  20. 20. And when the men
    H582
    of Ai
    H5857
    looked
    H6437
    behind
    H310
    them, they saw,
    H7200
    and, behold, the smoke
    H6227
    of the city
    H5892
    ascended up
    H5927
    to heaven,
    H8064
    and they had no power
    H3027
    to flee
    H5127
    this way or that way:
    H2008
    and the people
    H5971
    that fled
    H5127
    to the wilderness
    H4057
    turned back
    H2015
    upon the pursuers.
    H7291
  21. 21. And when Joshua
    H3091
    and all Israel
    H3478
    saw
    H7200
    that the ambush
    H693
    had taken
    H3920
    the city,
    H5892
    and that the smoke
    H6227
    of the city
    H5892
    ascended,
    H5927
    then they turned again,
    H7725
    and slew
    H5221
    the men
    H582
    of Ai.
    H5857
  22. 22. And the other
    H428
    issued out
    H3318
    of the city
    H5892
    against
    H7125
    them; so they were in the midst
    H8432
    of Israel,
    H3478
    some on this side, and some on that side: and they smote
    H5221
    them, so that
    H5704
    they let
    H7604
    none of them remain
    H8300
    or escape.
    H6412
  23. 23. And the king
    H4428
    of Ai
    H5857
    they took
    H8610
    alive,
    H2416
    and brought
    H7126
    him to Joshua.
    H3091
  24. 24. And it came to pass, when Israel
    H3478
    had made an end
    H3615
    of slaying
    H2026
    all the inhabitants
    H3427
    of Ai
    H5857
    in the field,
    H7704
    in the wilderness
    H4057
    wherein they chased
    H7291
    them, and when they were all fallen
    H5307
    on the edge
    H6310
    of the sword,
    H2719
    until they were consumed,
    H8552
    that all the Israelites
    H3478
    returned
    H7725
    unto Ai,
    H5857
    and smote
    H5221
    it with the edge
    H6310
    of the sword.
    H2719
  25. 25. And so it was, that all that fell
    H5307
    that day,
    H3117
    both of men
    H376
    and women,
    H802
    were twelve
    H6240
    H8147
    thousand,
    H505
    even all the men
    H582
    of Ai.
    H5857
  26. 26. For Joshua
    H3091
    drew
    H7725
    not his hand
    H3027
    back,
    H7725
    wherewith he stretched out
    H5186
    the spear,
    H3591
    until he had utterly destroyed
    H2763
    all the inhabitants
    H3427
    of Ai.
    H5857
  27. 27. Only the cattle
    H929
    and the spoil
    H7998
    of that city
    H5892
    Israel
    H3478
    took for a prey
    H962
    unto themselves, according unto the word
    H1697
    of the LORD
    H3068
    which he commanded
    H6680
    Joshua.
    H3091
  28. 28. And Joshua
    H3091
    burnt
    H8313
    Ai,
    H5857
    and made
    H7760
    it an heap
    H8510
    for ever,
    H5769
    even a desolation
    H8077
    unto this day.
    H3117
  29. 29. And the king
    H4428
    of Ai
    H5857
    he hanged
    H8518
    on a tree
    H6086
    until eventide:
    H6153
    H6256
    and as soon as the sun
    H8121
    was down,
    H935
    Joshua
    H3091
    commanded
    H6680
    that they should take
    H3381
    his carcase
    H5038
    down
    H3381
    from the tree,
    H6086
    and cast
    H7993
    it at the entering
    H6607
    of the gate
    H8179
    of the city,
    H5892
    and raise
    H6965
    thereon a great
    H1419
    heap
    H1530
    of stones,
    H68
    that remaineth unto this day.
    H3117
  30. 30. Then Joshua
    H3091
    built
    H1129
    an altar
    H4196
    unto the LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel
    H3478
    in mount
    H2022
    Ebal,
    H5858
  31. 31. As Moses
    H4872
    the servant
    H5650
    of the LORD
    H3068
    commanded
    H6680
    the children
    H1121
    of Israel,
    H3478
    as it is written
    H3789
    in the book
    H5612
    of the law
    H8451
    of Moses,
    H4872
    an altar
    H4196
    of whole
    H8003
    stones,
    H68
    over which no man hath lift up
    H5130
    any iron:
    H1270
    and they offered
    H5927
    thereon burnt offerings
    H5930
    unto the LORD,
    H3068
    and sacrificed
    H2076
    peace offerings.
    H8002
  32. 32. And he wrote
    H3789
    there upon the stones
    H68
    a copy
    H4932
    of the law
    H8451
    of Moses,
    H4872
    which he wrote
    H3789
    in the presence
    H6440
    of the children
    H1121
    of Israel.
    H3478
  33. 33. And all Israel,
    H3478
    and their elders,
    H2205
    and officers,
    H7860
    and their judges,
    H8199
    stood
    H5975
    on this side the ark
    H727
    and on that side before the priests
    H3548
    the Levites,
    H3881
    which bare
    H5375
    the ark
    H727
    of the covenant
    H1285
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    as well the stranger,
    H1616
    as he that was born
    H249
    among them; half
    H2677
    of them over
    H413
    against
    H4136
    mount
    H2022
    Gerizim,
    H1630
    and half
    H2677
    of them over against
    H4136
    mount
    H2022
    Ebal;
    H5858
    as Moses
    H4872
    the servant
    H5650
    of the LORD
    H3068
    had commanded
    H6680
    before,
    H7223
    that they should bless
    H1288
    the people
    H5971
    of Israel.
    H3478
  34. 34. And afterward
    H310
    he read
    H7121
    all the words
    H1697
    of the law,
    H8451
    the blessings
    H1293
    and cursings,
    H7045
    according to all that is written
    H3789
    in the book
    H5612
    of the law.
    H8451
  35. 35. There was not a word
    H1697
    of all that Moses
    H4872
    commanded,
    H6680
    which Joshua
    H3091
    read
    H7121
    not before all the congregation
    H6951
    of Israel,
    H3478
    with the women,
    H802
    and the little ones,
