Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass, that the children of Israel asked4 the LORD, saying,2 Who shall go up4 for us against the Canaanites first, to fight9 against them?
And the LORD said,4 Judah shall go up:4 behold, I have delivered1 the land into his hand.
And Judah said4 unto Simeon his brother, Come up3 with me into my lot, that we may fight11 against the Canaanites; and I likewise will go1 with thee into thy lot. So Simeon went4 with him.
And Judah went up;4 and the LORD delivered4 the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hand: and they slew55 of them in Bezek ten thousand men.
And they found4 Adonibezek in Bezek: and they fought11 against him, and they slew55 the Canaanites and the Perizzites.
But Adonibezek fled;4 and they pursued4 after him, and caught4 him, and cut off17 his thumbs 3027 and his great toes.
And Adonibezek said,4 Threescore and ten kings, having their thumbs 3027 and their great toes cut off,30 gathered18 [their meat] under my table: as I have done,1 so God hath requited14 me. And they brought55 him to Jerusalem, and there he died.4
Now the children of Judah had fought11 against Jerusalem, and had taken4 it, and smitten55 it with the edge of the sword, and set14 the city on fire.
And afterward the children of Judah went down1 to fight9 against the Canaanites, that dwelt6 in the mountain, and in the south, and in the valley.
And Judah went4 against the Canaanites that dwelt6 in Hebron: (now the name of Hebron before [was] Kirjatharba:) and they slew55 Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai.
And from thence he went4 against the inhabitants6 of Debir: and the name of Debir before [was] Kirjathsepher:
And Caleb said,4 He that smiteth55 Kirjathsepher, and taketh1 it, to him will I give1 Achsah my daughter to wife.
And Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother, took4 it: and he gave4 him Achsah his daughter to wife.
And it came to pass, when she came2 [to him], that she moved55 him to ask2 of her father a field: and she lighted4 from off [her] ass; and Caleb said4 unto her, What wilt thou?
And she said4 unto him, Give3 me a blessing: for thou hast given1 me a south land; give1 me also springs of water. And Caleb gave4 her the upper springs and the nether springs.
And the children of the Kenite, Moses' father in law,6 went up1 out of the city of palm trees 8558 5899 with the children of Judah into the wilderness of Judah, which [lieth] in the south of Arad; and they went4 and dwelt4 among the people.
And Judah went4 with Simeon his brother, and they slew55 the Canaanites that inhabited6 Zephath, and utterly destroyed55 it. And the name of the city was called4 Hormah.
Also Judah took4 Gaza with the coast thereof, and Askelon with the coast thereof, and Ekron with the coast thereof.
And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out55 [the inhabitants of] the mountain; but could not drive out53 the inhabitants6 of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.
And they gave4 Hebron unto Caleb, as Moses said:14 and he expelled55 thence the three sons of Anak.
And the children of Benjamin did not drive out52 the Jebusites that inhabited6 Jerusalem; but the Jebusites dwell4 with the children of Benjamin in Jerusalem unto this day.
And the house of Joseph, they also went up4 against Bethel: and the LORD [was] with them.
And the house of Joseph sent to descry55 Bethel. (Now the name of the city before [was] Luz.)
And the spies6 saw4 a man come forth6 out of the city, and they said4 unto him, Shew54 us, we pray thee, the entrance into the city, and we will shew1 thee mercy.
And when he shewed55 them the entrance into the city, they smote55 the city with the edge of the sword; but they let go14 the man and all his family.
And the man went4 into the land of the Hittites, and built4 a city, and called4 the name thereof Luz: which [is] the name thereof unto this day.
Neither did Manasseh drive out52 [the inhabitants of] Bethshean and her towns, nor Taanach and her towns, nor the inhabitants6 of Dor and her towns, nor the inhabitants6 of Ibleam and her towns, nor the inhabitants6 of Megiddo and her towns: but the Canaanites would55 dwell2 in that land.
And it came to pass, when Israel was strong,1 that they put4 the Canaanites to tribute, and did not utterly53 drive them out.52
Neither did Ephraim drive out52 the Canaanites that dwelt6 in Gezer; but the Canaanites dwelt4 in Gezer among them.
Neither did Zebulun drive out52 the inhabitants6 of Kitron, nor the inhabitants6 of Nahalol; but the Canaanites dwelt4 among them, and became tributaries.
Neither did Asher drive out52 the inhabitants6 of Accho, nor the inhabitants6 of Zidon, nor of Ahlab, nor of Achzib, nor of Helbah, nor of Aphik, nor of Rehob:
But the Asherites dwelt4 among the Canaanites, the inhabitants6 of the land: for they did not drive them out.52
Neither did Naphtali drive out52 the inhabitants6 of Bethshemesh, nor the inhabitants6 of Bethanath; but he dwelt4 among the Canaanites, the inhabitants6 of the land: nevertheless the inhabitants6 of Bethshemesh and of Bethanath became tributaries unto them.
And the Amorites forced4 the children of Dan into the mountain: for they would not suffer1 them to come down2 to the valley:
But the Amorites would55 dwell2 in mount Heres in Aijalon, and in Shaalbim: yet the hand of the house of Joseph prevailed,4 so that they became tributaries.
And the coast of the Amorites [was] from the going up to Akrabbim, 6137 4610 from the rock, and upward.
