Chapter 9

  1. 1. And it came to pass, when all the kings
    H4428
    which were on this side
    H5676
    Jordan,
    H3383
    in the hills,
    H2022
    and in the valleys,
    H8219
    and in all the coasts
    H2348
    of the great
    H1419
    sea
    H3220
    over against
    H4136
    Lebanon,
    H3844
    the Hittite,
    H2850
    and the Amorite,
    H567
    the Canaanite,
    H3669
    the Perizzite,
    H6522
    the Hivite,
    H2340
    and the Jebusite,
    H2983
    heard
    H8085
    thereof;
  2. 2. That they gathered
    H6908
    themselves together,
    H3162
    to fight
    H3898
    with Joshua
    H3091
    and with Israel,
    H3478
    with one
    H259
    accord.
    H6310
  3. 3. And when the inhabitants
    H3427
    of Gibeon
    H1391
    heard
    H8085
    what Joshua
    H3091
    had done
    H6213
    unto Jericho
    H3405
    and to Ai,
    H5857
  4. 4. They did work
    H6213
    wilily,
    H6195
    and went
    H3212
    and made as if they had been ambassadors,
    H6737
    and took
    H3947
    old
    H1087
    sacks
    H8242
    upon their asses,
    H2543
    and wine
    H3196
    bottles,
    H4997
    old,
    H1087
    and rent,
    H1234
    and bound up;
    H6887
  5. 5. And old
    H1087
    shoes
    H5275
    and clouted
    H2921
    upon their feet,
    H7272
    and old
    H1087
    garments
    H8008
    upon them; and all the bread
    H3899
    of their provision
    H6718
    was dry
    H3001
    and mouldy.
    H5350
  6. 6. And they went
    H3212
    to Joshua
    H3091
    unto the camp
    H4264
    at Gilgal,
    H1537
    and said
    H559
    unto him, and to the men
    H376
    of Israel,
    H3478
    We be come
    H935
    from a far
    H7350
    country:
    H776
    now therefore make
    H3772
    ye a league
    H1285
    with us.
  7. 7. And the men
    H376
    of Israel
    H3478
    said
    H559
    unto the Hivites,
    H2340
    Peradventure
    H194
    ye dwell
    H3427
    among
    H7130
    us; and how shall we make
    H3772
    a league
    H1285
    with you?
  8. 8. And they said
    H559
    unto Joshua,
    H3091
    We are thy servants.
    H5650
    And Joshua
    H3091
    said
    H559
    unto them, Who are ye? and from whence
    H370
    come
    H935
    ye?
  9. 9. And they said
    H559
    unto him, From a very
    H3966
    far
    H7350
    country
    H776
    thy servants
    H5650
    are come
    H935
    because of the name
    H8034
    of the LORD
    H3068
    thy God:
    H430
    for we have heard
    H8085
    the fame
    H8089
    of him, and all that he did
    H6213
    in Egypt,
    H4714
  10. 10. And all that he did
    H6213
    to the two
    H8147
    kings
    H4428
    of the Amorites,
    H567
    that were beyond
    H5676
    Jordan,
    H3383
    to Sihon
    H5511
    king
    H4428
    of Heshbon,
    H2809
    and to Og
    H5747
    king
    H4428
    of Bashan,
    H1316
    which was at Ashtaroth.
    H6252
  11. 11. Wherefore our elders
    H2205
    and all the inhabitants
    H3427
    of our country
    H776
    spake
    H559
    to us, saying,
    H559
    Take
    H3947
    victuals
    H6720
    with you
    H3027
    for the journey,
    H1870
    and go
    H3212
    to meet
    H7125
    them, and say
    H559
    unto them, We are your servants:
    H5650
    therefore now make
    H3772
    ye a league
    H1285
    with us.
  12. 12. This our bread
    H3899
    we took hot
    H2525
    for our provision
    H6679
    out of our houses
    H1004
    on the day
    H3117
    we came forth
    H3318
    to go
    H3212
    unto you; but now, behold, it is dry,
    H3001
    and it is mouldy:
    H5350
  13. 13. And these bottles
    H4997
    of wine,
    H3196
    which we filled,
    H4390
    were new;
    H2319
    and, behold, they be rent:
    H1234
    and these our garments
    H8008
    and our shoes
    H5275
    are become old
    H1086
    by reason of the very
    H3966
    long
    H7230
    journey.
    H1870
  14. 14. And the men
    H582
    took
    H3947
    of their victuals,
    H6718
    and asked
    H7592
    not counsel at the mouth
    H6310
    of the LORD.
    H3068
  15. 15. And Joshua
    H3091
    made
    H6213
    peace
    H7965
    with them, and made
    H3772
    a league
    H1285
    with them, to let them live:
    H2421
    and the princes
    H5387
    of the congregation
    H5712
    sware
    H7650
    unto them.
  16. 16. And it came to pass at the end
    H7097
    of three
    H7969
    days
    H3117
    after
    H310
    they had made
    H3772
    a league
    H1285
    with them, that they heard
    H8085
    that they were their neighbours,
    H7138
    and that they dwelt
    H3427
    among
    H7130
    them.
  17. 17. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    journeyed,
    H5265
    and came
    H935
    unto their cities
    H5892
    on the third
    H7992
    day.
    H3117
    Now their cities
    H5892
    were Gibeon,
    H1391
    and Chephirah,
    H3716
    and Beeroth,
    H881
    and Kirjathjearim.
    H7157
  18. 18. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    smote
    H5221
    them not, because the princes
    H5387
    of the congregation
    H5712
    had sworn
    H7650
    unto them by the LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel.
    H3478
    And all the congregation
    H5712
    murmured
    H3885
    against the princes.
    H5387
  19. 19. But all the princes
    H5387
    said
    H559
    unto all the congregation,
    H5712
    We have sworn
    H7650
    unto them by the LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel:
    H3478
    now therefore we may
    H3201
    not touch
    H5060
    them.
  20. 20. This we will do
    H6213
    to them; we will even let them live,
    H2421
    lest wrath
    H7110
    be upon us, because of the oath
    H7621
    which we sware
    H7650
    unto them.
  21. 21. And the princes
    H5387
    said
    H559
    unto them, Let them live;
    H2421
    but let them be hewers
    H2404
    of wood
    H6086
    and drawers
    H7579
    of water
    H4325
    unto all the congregation;
    H5712
    as the princes
    H5387
    had promised
    H1696
    them.
  22. 22. And Joshua
    H3091
    called
    H7121
    for them, and he spake
    H1696
    unto them, saying,
    H559
    Wherefore have ye beguiled
    H7411
    us, saying,
    H559
    We are very
    H3966
    far
    H7350
    from you; when ye dwell
    H3427
    among
    H7130
    us?
  23. 23. Now therefore ye are cursed,
    H779
    and there shall none of you be freed
    H3772
    from being bondmen,
    H5650
    and hewers
    H2404
    of wood
    H6086
    and drawers
    H7579
    of water
    H4325
    for the house
    H1004
    of my God.
    H430
  24. 24. And they answered
    H6030
    Joshua,
    H3091
    and said,
    H559
    Because it was certainly
    H5046
    told
    H5046
    thy servants,
    H5650
    how that the LORD
    H3068
    thy God
    H430
    commanded
    H6680
    his servant
    H5650
    Moses
    H4872
    to give
    H5414
    you all the land,
    H776
    and to destroy
    H8045
    all the inhabitants
    H3427
    of the land
    H776
    from before
    H6440
    you, therefore we were sore
    H3966
    afraid
    H3372
    of our lives
    H5315
    because
    H6440
    of you, and have done
    H6213
    this thing.
    H1697
  25. 25. And now, behold, we
    H2009
    are in thine hand:
    H3027
    as it seemeth
    H5869
    good
    H2896
    and right
    H3477
    unto thee to do
    H6213
    unto us, do.
    H6213
  26. 26. And so did
    H6213
    he unto them, and delivered
    H5337
    them out of the hand
    H3027
    of the children
    H1121
    of Israel,
    H3478
    that they slew
    H2026
    them not.
  27. 27. And Joshua
    H3091
    made
    H5414
    them that day
    H3117
    hewers
    H2404
    of wood
    H6086
    and drawers
    H7579
    of water
    H4325
    for the congregation,
    H5712
    and for the altar
    H4196
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    even unto this day,
    H3117
    in the place
    H4725
    which he should choose.
