The Continuing Conquest of Canaan

1Now afterH310 the deathH4194 of JoshuaH3091 it came to pass, that the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 askedH7592 the LORDH3068, sayingH559, Who shall go upH5927 for us against the CanaanitesH3669 firstH8462, to fightH3898 against them? 2And the LORDH3068 saidH559, JudahH3063 shall go upH5927: behold, I have deliveredH5414 the landH776 into his handH3027. 3And JudahH3063 saidH559 unto SimeonH8095 his brotherH251, Come upH5927 with me into my lotH1486, that we may fightH3898 against the CanaanitesH3669; and I likewise will goH1980 with thee into thy lotH1486. So SimeonH8095 wentH3212 with him. 4And JudahH3063 went upH5927; and the LORDH3068 deliveredH5414 the CanaanitesH3669 and the PerizzitesH6522 into their handH3027: and they slewH5221 of them in BezekH966 tenH6235 thousandH505 menH376. 5And they foundH4672 AdonibezekH137 in BezekH966: and they foughtH3898 against him, and they slewH5221 the CanaanitesH3669 and the PerizzitesH6522. 6But AdonibezekH137 fledH5127; and they pursuedH7291 afterH310 him, and caughtH270 him, and cut offH7112 his thumbsH931H3027 and his great toesH7272. 7And AdonibezekH137 saidH559, Threescore and tenH7657 kingsH4428, having their thumbsH931H3027 and their great toesH7272 cut offH7112, gatheredH3950 their meat under my tableH7979: as I have doneH6213, so GodH430 hath requitedH7999 me. And they broughtH935 him to JerusalemH3389, and there he diedH4191. / their thumbs…: Heb. the thumbs of their hands and of their feet / gathered: or, gleaned 8Now the childrenH1121 of JudahH3063 had foughtH3898 against JerusalemH3389, and had takenH3920 it, and smittenH5221 it with the edgeH6310 of the swordH2719, and setH7971 the cityH5892 on fireH784. 9And afterwardH310 the childrenH1121 of JudahH3063 went downH3381 to fightH3898 against the CanaanitesH3669, that dweltH3427 in the mountainH2022, and in the southH5045, and in the valleyH8219. / valley: or, low country 10And JudahH3063 wentH3212 against the CanaanitesH3669 that dweltH3427 in HebronH2275: (now the nameH8034 of HebronH2275 beforeH6440 was KirjatharbaH7153:) and they slewH5221 SheshaiH8344, and AhimanH289, and TalmaiH8526. 11And from thence he wentH3212 against the inhabitantsH3427 of DebirH1688: and the nameH8034 of DebirH1688 beforeH6440 was KirjathsepherH7158: 12And CalebH3612 saidH559, He that smitethH5221 KirjathsepherH7158, and takethH3920 it, to him will I giveH5414 AchsahH5915 my daughterH1323 to wifeH802. 13And OthnielH6274 the sonH1121 of KenazH7073, Caleb'sH3612 youngerH6996 brotherH251, tookH3920 it: and he gaveH5414 him AchsahH5915 his daughterH1323 to wifeH802. 14And it came to pass, when she cameH935 to him, that she movedH5496 him to askH7592 of her fatherH1 a fieldH7704: and she lightedH6795 from off her assH2543; and CalebH3612 saidH559 unto her, What wilt thou? 15And she saidH559 unto him, GiveH3051 me a blessingH1293: for thou hast givenH5414 me a southH5045 landH776; giveH5414 me also springsH1543 of waterH4325. And CalebH3612 gaveH5414 her the upperH5942 springsH1543 and the netherH8482 springsH1543. 16And the childrenH1121 of the KeniteH7017, Moses'H4872 father in lawH2859, went upH5927 out of the cityH5892 of palm treesH8558H5899 with the childrenH1121 of JudahH3063 into the wildernessH4057 of JudahH3063, which lieth in the southH5045 of AradH6166; and they wentH3212 and dweltH3427 amongH854 the peopleH5971. 17And JudahH3063 wentH3212 with SimeonH8095 his brotherH251, and they slewH5221 the CanaanitesH3669 that inhabitedH3427 ZephathH6857, and utterly destroyedH2763 it. And the nameH8034 of the cityH5892 was calledH7121 HormahH2767. 18Also JudahH3063 tookH3920 GazaH5804 with the coastH1366 thereof, and AskelonH831 with the coastH1366 thereof, and EkronH6138 with the coastH1366 thereof. 19And the LORDH3068 was with JudahH3063; and he drave outH3423 the inhabitants of the mountainH2022; but could notH3808 drive outH3423 the inhabitantsH3427 of the valleyH6010, because they had chariotsH7393 of ironH1270. / drave…: or, possessed the mountain 20And they gaveH5414 HebronH2275 unto CalebH3612, as MosesH4872 saidH1696: and he expelledH3423 thence the threeH7969 sonsH1121 of AnakH6061. 21And the childrenH1121 of BenjaminH1144 did not drive outH3423 the JebusitesH2983 that inhabitedH3427 JerusalemH3389; but the JebusitesH2983 dwellH3427 with the childrenH1121 of BenjaminH1144 in JerusalemH3389 unto this dayH3117. 22And the houseH1004 of JosephH3130, they also went upH5927 against BethelH1008: and the LORDH3068 was with them. 23And the houseH1004 of JosephH3130 sent to descryH8446 BethelH1008. (Now the nameH8034 of the cityH5892 beforeH6440 was LuzH3870.) 24And the spiesH8104 sawH7200 a manH376 come forthH3318 out of the cityH5892, and they saidH559 unto him, ShewH7200 us, we pray thee, the entranceH3996 into the cityH5892, and we will shewH6213 thee mercyH2617. 25And when he shewedH7200 them the entranceH3996 into the cityH5892, they smoteH5221 the cityH5892 with the edgeH6310 of the swordH2719; but they let goH7971 the manH376 and all his familyH4940. 26And the manH376 wentH3212 into the landH776 of the HittitesH2850, and builtH1129 a cityH5892, and calledH7121 the nameH8034 thereof LuzH3870: which is the nameH8034 thereof unto this dayH3117.

Incomplete Conquest of the Land

27Neither did ManassehH4519 drive outH3423 the inhabitants of BethsheanH1052 and her townsH1323, nor TaanachH8590 and her townsH1323, nor the inhabitantsH3427 of DorH1756 and her townsH1323, nor the inhabitantsH3427 of IbleamH2991 and her townsH1323, nor the inhabitantsH3427 of MegiddoH4023 and her townsH1323: but the CanaanitesH3669 wouldH2974 dwellH3427 in that landH776. 28And it came to pass, when IsraelH3478 was strongH2388, that they putH7760 the CanaanitesH3669 to tributeH4522, and did not utterlyH3423 drive them outH3423. 29Neither did EphraimH669 drive outH3423 the CanaanitesH3669 that dweltH3427 in GezerH1507; but the CanaanitesH3669 dweltH3427 in GezerH1507 amongH7130 them. 30Neither did ZebulunH2074 drive outH3423 the inhabitantsH3427 of KitronH7003, nor the inhabitantsH3427 of NahalolH5096; but the CanaanitesH3669 dweltH3427 amongH7130 them, and became tributariesH4522. 31Neither did AsherH836 drive outH3423 the inhabitantsH3427 of AcchoH5910, nor the inhabitantsH3427 of ZidonH6721, nor of AhlabH303, nor of AchzibH392, nor of HelbahH2462, nor of AphikH663, nor of RehobH7340: 32But the AsheritesH843 dweltH3427 amongH7130 the CanaanitesH3669, the inhabitantsH3427 of the landH776: for they did not drive them outH3423. 33Neither did NaphtaliH5321 drive outH3423 the inhabitantsH3427 of BethshemeshH1053, nor the inhabitantsH3427 of BethanathH1043; but he dweltH3427 amongH7130 the CanaanitesH3669, the inhabitantsH3427 of the landH776: nevertheless the inhabitantsH3427 of BethshemeshH1053 and of BethanathH1043 became tributariesH4522 unto them. 34And the AmoritesH567 forcedH3905 the childrenH1121 of DanH1835 into the mountainH2022: for they would not sufferH5414 them to come downH3381 to the valleyH6010: 35But the AmoritesH567 wouldH2974 dwellH3427 in mountH2022 HeresH2776 in AijalonH357, and in ShaalbimH8169: yet the handH3027 of the houseH1004 of JosephH3130 prevailedH3513, so that they became tributariesH4522. / prevailed: Heb. was heavy 36And the coastH1366 of the AmoritesH567 was from the going upH4608 to AkrabbimH4610, from the rockH5553, and upwardH4605. / the going…: or, Maalehakrabbim
