50 n:

Only the inhabitants of Giv'on (1391) were greatly afraid of fighting against the Yis'ra'eli (3478) lest they should perish, so they acted cunningly, and they came to Y'hoshu'a (3091) and to all Yis'ra'el (3478), and said unto them, We have come from a distant land, now therefore make a covenant with us.

51 an:

And the inhabitants of Giv'on (1391) over-reached the sons of Yis'ra'el (3478), and the children of Yis'ra'el (3478) made a covenant with them, and they made peace with them, and the princes of the congregation swore unto them, but afterward the sons of Yis'ra'el (3478) knew that they were neighbors to them and were dwelling amongst them.

52 bn:

But the sons of Yis'ra'el (3478) slew them not; for they had sworn to them by Y'hovah (3068), and they became hewers of wood and drawers of water.

53 gn:

And Y'hoshu'a (3091) said to them, Why did you deceive me, to do this thing to us? and they answered him, saying, Because it was told to thy servants all that you had done to all the kings of the Emori (567), and we were greatly afraid of our lives, and we did this thing.

54 dn:

And Y'hoshu'a (3091) appointed them on that day to hew wood and to draw water, and he divided them for slaves to all the tribes of Yis'ra'el (3478).

56 wn:

Come up to me and help me, that we may smite the sons of Yis'ra'el (3478) and the inhabitants of Giv'on (1391) who have made peace with the sons of Yis'ra'el (3478).

57 zn:

And they gathered themselves together and the five kings of the Emori (567) went up with all their camps, a mighty people numerous as the sand of the sea shore.

58 xn:

And all these kings came and encamped before Giv'on (1391), and they began to fight against the inhabitants of Giv'on (1391), and all the men of Giv'on (1391) sent to Y'hoshu'a (3091), saying, Come up quickly to us and help us, for all the kings of the Emori (567) have gathered together to fight against us.

59 jn:

And Y'hoshu'a (3091) and all the fighting people went up from Gil'gal (1537), and Y'hoshu'a (3091) came suddenly to them, and smote these five kings with a great slaughter.

And Y'hovah (3068) confounded them before the children at Yis'ra'el (3478), who smote them with a terrible slaughter in Giv'on (1391), and pursued them along the way that goes up to Beth Horon unto Makkedah, and they fled from before the sons of Yis'ra'el (3478).

61 as:

And whilst they were fleeing, Y'hovah (3068) sent upon them hailstones from heaven, and more of them died by the hailstones, than by the slaughter of the sons of Yis'ra'el (3478).

62 bs:

And the sons of Yis'ra'el (3478) pursued them, and they still smote them in the road, going on and smiting them.

63 gs:

And when they were smiting, the day was declining toward evening, and Y'hoshu'a (3091) said in the sight of all the people, Sun, stand thou still upon Giv'on (1391), and thou moon in the valley of Ajalon, until the nation shall have revenged itself upon its enemies.

64 ds:

And Y'hovah (3068) hearkened to the voice of Y'hoshu'a (3091), and the sun stood still in the midst of the heavens, and it stood still six and thirty moments, and the moon also stood still and hastened not to go down a whole day.

65 hs:

And there was no day like that, before it or after it, that Y'hovah (3068) hearkened to the voice of a man, for Y'hovah (3068) fought for Yis'ra'el (3478).
