Joshua 11
1)And it came to pass, when Jabin king of Hazor had heard those things, that he sent to Jobab king of Madon, and to the king of Shimron, and to the king of Achshaph,
2)And to the kings that were on the north of the mountains, and of the plains south of Chinneroth, and in the valley, and in the borders of Dor on the west,
3)And to the Canaanite on the east and on the west, and to the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Jebusite in the mountains, and to the Hivite under Hermon in the land of Mizpeh.
4)And they went out, they and all their hosts with them, much people, even as the sand that is upon the sea shore in multitude, with horses and chariots very many.
5)And when all these kings were met together, they came and pitched together at the waters of Merom, to fight against Israel.
6)And the LORD said unto Joshua, Be not afraid because of them: for to morrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain before Israel: thou shalt hock their horses, and burn their chariots with fire.
7)So Joshua came, and all the people of war with him, against them by the waters of Merom suddenly; and they fell upon them.
8)And the LORD delivered them into the hand of Israel, who smote them, and chased them unto great Zidon, and unto Misrephothmaim, and unto the valley of Mizpeh eastward; and they smote them, until they left them none remaining.
9)And Joshua did unto them as the LORD bade him: he hocked their horses, and burnt their chariots with fire.
10)And Joshua at that time turned back, and took Hazor, and smote the king thereof with the sword: for Hazor beforetime was the head of all those kingdoms.
11)And they smote all the souls that were therein with the edge of the sword, utterly destroying them: there was not any left to breathe: and he burnt Hazor with fire.
12)And all the cities of those kings, and all the kings of them, did Joshua take, and smote them with the edge of the sword, and he utterly destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the LORD commanded.
13)But as for the cities that stood still in their strength, Israel burned none of them, save Hazor only; that did Joshua burn.
14)And all the spoil of these cities, and the cattle, the children of Israel took for a prey unto themselves; but every man they smote with the edge of the sword, until they had destroyed them, neither left they any to breathe.
15)As the LORD commanded Moses his servant, so did Moses command Joshua, and so did Joshua; he left nothing undone of all that the LORD commanded Moses.
16)So Joshua took all that land, the hills, and all the south country, and all the land of Goshen, and the valley, and the plain, and the mountain of Israel, and the valley of the same;
17)Even from the mount Halak, that goeth up to Seir, even unto Baalgad in the valley of Lebanon under mount Hermon: and all their kings he took, and smote them, and slew them.
18)Joshua made war a long time with all those kings.
19)There was not a city that made peace with the children of Israel, save the Hivites the inhabitants of Gibeon: all other they took in battle.
20)For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy them utterly, and that they might have no favour, but that he might destroy them, as the LORD commanded Moses.
21)And at that time came Joshua, and cut off the Anakims from the mountains, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, and from all the mountains of Judah, and from all the mountains of Israel: Joshua destroyed them utterly with their cities.
22)There was none of the Anakims left in the land of the children of Israel: only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod, there remained.
23)So Joshua took the whole land, according to all that the LORD said unto Moses; and Joshua gave it for an inheritance unto Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. And the land rested from war.
Joshua 12
1)Now these are the kings of the land, which the children of Israel smote, and possessed their land on the other side Jordan toward the rising of the sun, from the river Arnon unto mount Hermon, and all the plain on the east:
2)Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon, and ruled from Aroer, which is upon the bank of the river Arnon, and from the middle of the river, and from half Gilead, even unto the river Jabbok, which is the border of the children of Ammon;
3)And from the plain to the sea of Chinneroth on the east, and unto the sea of the plain, even the salt sea on the east, the way to Bethjeshimoth; and from the south, under Ashdothpisgah:
4)And the coast of Og king of Bashan, which was of the remnant of the giants, that dwelt at Ashtaroth and at Edrei,
5)And reigned in mount Hermon, and in Salcah, and in all Bashan, unto the border of the Geshurites and the Maachathites, and half Gilead, the border of Sihon king of Heshbon.
6)Them did Moses the servant of the LORD and the children of Israel smite: and Moses the servant of the LORD gave it for a possession unto the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh.
7)And these are the kings of the country which Joshua and the children of Israel smote on this side Jordan on the west, from Baalgad in the valley of Lebanon even unto the mount Halak, that goeth up to Seir; which Joshua gave unto the tribes of Israel for a possession according to their divisions;
8)In the mountains, and in the valleys, and in the plains, and in the springs, and in the wilderness, and in the south country; the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites:
9)The king of Jericho, one; the king of Ai, which is beside Bethel, one;
10)The king of Jerusalem, one; the king of Hebron, one;
11)The king of Jarmuth, one; the king of Lachish, one;
12)The king of Eglon, one; the king of Gezer, one;
13)The king of Debir, one; the king of Geder, one;
14)The king of Hormah, one; the king of Arad, one;
15)The king of Libnah, one; the king of Adullam, one;
16)The king of Makkedah, one; the king of Bethel, one;
17)The king of Tappuah, one; the king of Hepher, one;
18)The king of Aphek, one; the king of Lasharon, one;
19)The king of Madon, one; the king of Hazor, one;
20)The king of Shimronmeron, one; the king of Achshaph, one;
21)The king of Taanach, one; the king of Megiddo, one;
22)The king of Kedesh, one; the king of Jokneam of Carmel, one;
23)The king of Dor in the coast of Dor, one; the king of the nations of Gilgal, one;
24)The king of Tirzah, one: all the kings thirty and one.
Psalms 149
1)Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
2)Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
3)Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
4)For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
5)Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
6)Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;
7)To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
8)To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
9)To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
Proverbs 23
1)When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee:
2)And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.
3)Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.
4)Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.
5)Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.
6)Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:
7)For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
8)The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.
9)Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.
10)Remove not the old landmark; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless:
11)For their redeemer is mighty; he shall plead their cause with thee.
12)Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.
13)Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.
14)Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.
15)My son, if thine heart be wise, my heart shall rejoice, even mine.
16)Yea, my reins shall rejoice, when thy lips speak right things.
17)Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long.
18)For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.
19)Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.
20)Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:
21)For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.
22)Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.
23)Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
24)The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.
25)Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice.
26)My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.
27)For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.
28)She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.
29)Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes?
30)They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.
31)Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.
32)At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.
33)Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.
34)Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.
35)They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.
