joshua 10 1 2

Joshua 10:1-2

Now it came about when Adoni-zedek king of Jerusalem heard that Joshua had captured Ai, and had utterly destroyed it (just as he had done to Jericho and its king, so he had done to Ai and its king), and that the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel and were within their land, that he feared greatly, because Gibeon was a great city, like one of the royal cities, and because it was greater than Ai, and all its men were mighty.

joshua 10 11

Joshua 10:11

And it came about as they fled from before Israel, while they were at the descend of Beth-horon, that the Lord threw large stones from heaven on them, as far as Azekah, and they died; there were more who died from the hailstones than those whom the sons of Israel killed with the sword.

joshua 10 12

Joshua 10:12

Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the sons of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel,

“O sun, stand still at Gibeon,

And O moon in the valley of Aijalon.”

joshua 10 13

Joshua 10:13

So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped,

Until the nation avenged themselves of their enemies.

Is it not written in the book of Jashar? And the sun stopped in the middle of the sky, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.

joshua 10 14

Joshua 10:14

And there was no day like that before it or after it, when the Lord listened to the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel.

Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,

And to heed than the fat of rams.”

1 samuel 28 18 19

1 Samuel 28:18-19

“As you did not obey the Lord and did not execute His fierce wrath of Amalek, so the Lord has done this thing to you this day.
