Amplified Bible
1AFTER THE death of Joshua, the Israelites asked the Lord, Who shall go up first for us against the Canaanites to fight against them?H310H4194H3091H1121H3478H7592H3068H559H5927H3669H8462H3898 2And the Lord said, Judah shall go up; behold, I have delivered the land into his hand.H3068H559H3063H5927H5414H776H3027 3And Judah [the tribe] said to [the tribe of] Simeon his brother, Come up with me into my allotted territory, so that we may fight against the Canaanites; and I likewise will go with you into your territory. So Simeon went with him.H3063H559H8095H251H5927H1486H3898H3669H1980H1486H8095H3212 4Then Judah went up and the Lord delivered the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hand, and they smote 10,000 of them in Bezek.H3063H5927H3068H5414H3669H6522H3027H5221H966H6235H505H376 5And they found Adoni-bezek in Bezek and fought against him, and they smote the Canaanites and the Perizzites.H4672H137H966H3898H5221H3669H6522 6Adoni-bezek fled, but they pursued him and caught him and cut off his thumbs and his big toes.H137H5127H7291H310H270H7112H931H3027H7272 7Adoni-bezek said, Seventy kings with their thumbs and big toes cut off had to gather their food under my table. As I have done, so God has repaid me. And they brought him to Jerusalem, and there he died.H137H559H7657H4428H931H3027H7272H7112H3950H7979H6213H430H7999H935H3389H4191 8And the men of Judah fought against [Jebusite] Jerusalem and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword and set the city on fire.H1121H3063H3898H3389H3920H5221H6310H2719H7971H5892H784 9Afterward the men of Judah went down to fight against the Canaanites who dwelt in the hill country, in the South (the Negeb), and in the lowland.H310H1121H3063H3381H3898H3669H3427H2022H5045H8219 10And Judah went against the Canaanites who dwelt in Hebron. The name of Hebron before was Kiriath-arba. And they defeated Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai.H3063H3212H3669H3427H2275H8034H2275H6440H7153H5221H8344H289H8526 11From there [Judah] went against the inhabitants of Debir. The name of Debir before was Kiriath-sepher [city of books and scribes].H3212H3427H1688H8034H1688H6440H7158 12And Caleb said, Whoever attacks Kiriath-sepher and takes it, to him will I give Achsah, my daughter, as wife.H3612H559H5221H7158H3920H5414H5915H1323H802 13And Othniel son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother, took it; and he gave him Achsah, his daughter, as wife.H6274H1121H7073H3612H6996H251H3920H5414H5915H1323H802 14And when she came to [Othniel], she got his consent to ask her father for a [sloping] field. And she alighted off her donkey, and Caleb said to her, What do you want?H935H5496H7592H1H7704H6795H2543H3612H559 15And she said to him, Give me a present; since you have set me in the land of the South (the Negeb), give me also springs of water. And Caleb gave her the upper and lower springs.H559H3051H1293H5414H5045H776H5414H1543H4325H3612H5414H5942H1543H8482H1543 16And the descendants of the Kenite, Moses' father-in-law, went up with the Judahites from the City of Palms (Jericho) into the Wilderness of Judah, which lies in the South (the Negeb) near Arad; and they went and dwelt with the people.H1121H7017H4872H2859H5927H5892H8558H5899H1121H3063H4057H3063H5045H6166H3212H3427H854H5971 17And [the tribe of] Judah went with Simeon his brother, and they slew the Canaanites who inhabited Zephath and utterly destroyed it. So the city was called Hormah [destruction].H3063H3212H8095H251H5221H3669H3427H6857H2763H8034H5892H7121H2767 18Also Judah took Gaza, Askelon, and Ekron--each with its territory.H3063H3920H5804H1366H831H1366H6138H1366 19The Lord was with Judah, and [Judah] drove out the inhabitants of the hill country, but he could not drive out those inhabiting the [difficult] valley basin because they had chariots of iron.H3068H3063H3423H2022H3808H3423H3427H6010H7393H1270 20Hebron was given to Caleb as Moses said, and he expelled from there the three sons of Anak.H5414H2275H3612H4872H1696H3423H7969H1121H6061 21But the Benjamites did not drive out the Jebusites who inhabited Jerusalem; the Jebusites dwell with the Benjamites in Jerusalem to this day.H1121H1144H3423H2983H3427H3389H2983H3427H1121H1144H3389H3117 22The house of Joseph also went up against Bethel, and the Lord was with them.H1004H3130H5927H1008H3068 23And the house of Joseph was sent to spy out Bethel. The name of the city formerly had been Luz.H1004H3130H8446H1008H8034H5892H6440H3870 24And the spies saw a man coming out of the city and they said to him, Show us, we pray you, the way into the city and we will show you mercy.H8104H7200H376H3318H5892H559H7200H3996H5892H6213H2617 25When he showed them the entrance to the city, they smote the city with the sword, but they let the man and all his family go.H7200H3996H5892H5221H5892H6310H2719H7971H376H4940 26And the man went into the land of the Hittites and built a city and called it Luz, which is its name to this day.H376H3212H776H2850H1129H5892H7121H8034H3870H8034H3117 27Neither did Manasseh drive out the inhabitants of Beth-shean and its villages, or of Taanach or Dor or Ibleam or Megiddo and their villages, but the Canaanites remained in that land.H4519H3423H1052H1323H8590H1323H3427H1756H1323H3427H2991H1323H3427H4023H1323H3669H2974H3427H776 28When Israel became strong, they put the Canaanites to forced labor but did not utterly drive them out.H3478H2388H7760H3669H4522H3423H3423 29Neither did Ephraim drive out the Canaanites who dwelt in Gezer, but the Canaanites dwelt in Gezer among them.H669H3423H3669H3427H1507H3669H3427H1507H7130 30Neither did Zebulun drive out the inhabitants of Kitron or of Nahalol, but the Canaanites dwelt among them and were put to forced labor.H2074H3423H3427H7003H3427H5096H3669H3427H7130H4522 31Neither did Asher drive out the inhabitants of Acco or of Sidon or of Ahlab or of Achzib or of Helbah or of Aphik or of Rehob;H836H3423H3427H5910H3427H6721H303H392H2462H663H7340 32But the Asherites dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land, for they did not drive them out.H843H3427H7130H3669H3427H776H3423 33Neither did Naphtali drive out the inhabitants of Beth-shemesh or of Beth-anath, but dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land; but the inhabitants of Beth-shemesh and of Beth-anath became subject to forced labor for them.H5321H3423H3427H1053H3427H1043H3427H7130H3669H3427H776H3427H1053H1043H4522 34The Amorites forced the Danites back into the hill country, for they would not allow them to come down into the plain;H567H3905H1121H1835H2022H5414H3381H6010 35The Amorites remained fixed in Mount Heres [mountain of the sun], in Aijalon, and in Shaalbim; yet the hand of the house of Joseph prevailed, so that they became subject to forced labor.H567H2974H3427H2022H2776H357H8169H3027H1004H3130H3513H4522 36And the border of the Amorites was from the ascent of Akrabbim, from the rock Sela and onward.H1366H567H4608H4610H5553H4605
