Book 07 Judges 001:001 It happened after the death of Joshua, the children of Israel asked of Yahweh, saying, Who shall go up for us first against the Canaanites, to fight against them? 001:002 Yahweh said, Judah shall go up: behold, I have delivered the land into his hand. 001:003 Judah said to Simeon his brother, Come up with me into my lot, that we may fight against the Canaanites; and I likewise will go with you into your lot. So Simeon went with him. 001:004 Judah went up; and Yahweh delivered the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hand: and they struck of them in Bezek ten thousand men. 001:005 They found Adoni Bezek in Bezek; and they fought against him, and they struck the Canaanites and the Perizzites. 001:006 But Adoni Bezek fled; and they pursued after him, and caught him, and cut off his thumbs and his great toes. 001:007 Adoni Bezek said, "Seventy kings, having their thumbs and their great toes cut off, gathered [their food] under my table: as I have done, so God has requited me." They brought him to Jerusalem, and he died there. 001:008 The children of Judah fought against Jerusalem, and took it, and struck it with the edge of the sword, and set the city on fire. 001:009 Afterward the children of Judah went down to fight against the Canaanites who lived in the hill country, and in the South, and in the lowland. 001:010 Judah went against the Canaanites who lived in Hebron (now the name of Hebron before was Kiriath Arba); and they struck Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai. 001:011 From there he went against the inhabitants of Debir. (Now the name of Debir before was Kiriath Sepher.) 001:012 Caleb said, He who strikes Kiriath Sepher, and takes it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter as wife. 001:013 Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter as wife. 001:014 It happened, when she came [to him], that she moved him to ask of her father a field: and she alighted from off her donkey; and Caleb said to her, What would you? 001:015 She said to him, Give me a blessing; for that you have set me in the land of the South, give me also springs of water. Caleb gave her the upper springs and the lower springs. 001:016 The children of the Kenite, Moses' brother in law, went up out of the city of palm trees with the children of Judah into the wilderness of Judah, which is in the south of Arad; and they went and lived with the people. 001:017 Judah went with Simeon his brother, and they struck the Canaanites who inhabited Zephath, and utterly destroyed it. The name of the city was called Hormah. 001:018 Also Judah took Gaza with the border of it, and Ashkelon with the border of it, and Ekron with the border of it. 001:019 Yahweh was with Judah; and drove out [the inhabitants of] the hill country; for he could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron. 001:020 They gave Hebron to Caleb, as Moses had spoken: and he drove out there the three sons of Anak. 001:021 The children of Benjamin did not drive out the Jebusites who inhabited Jerusalem; but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Benjamin in Jerusalem to this day. 001:022 The house of Joseph, they also went up against Bethel; and Yahweh was with them. 001:023 The house of Joseph sent to spy out Bethel. (Now the name of the city before was Luz.) 001:024 The watchers saw a man come forth out of the city, and they said to him, Show us, we pray you, the entrance into the city, and we will deal kindly with you. 001:025 He shown them the entrance into the city; and they struck the city with the edge of the sword; but they let the man go and all his family...
