9:1 And it came to pass, when all the kings [H4428] which [were] on this side [H5676] Jordan [H3383] , in the hills [H2022] , and in the valleys [H8219] , and in all the coasts [H2348] of the great [H1419] sea [H3220] over against [H4136] Lebanon [H3844] , the Hittite [H2850] , and the Amorite [H567] , the Canaanite [H3669] , the Perizzite [H6522] , the Hivite [H2340] , and the Jebusite [H2983] , heard [H8085] [thereof];

9:2 That they gathered [H6908] themselves together [H3162] , to fight [H3898] with Joshua [H3091] and with Israel [H3478] , with one [H259] accord [H6310] .(accord: Heb. mouth)

9:3 And when the inhabitants [H3427] of Gibeon [H1391] heard [H8085] what Joshua [H3091] had done [H6213] unto Jericho [H3405] and to Ai [H5857] ,

9:4 They did work [H6213] wilily [H6195] , and went [H3212] and made as if they had been ambassadors [H6737] , and took [H3947] old [H1087] sacks [H8242] upon their asses [H2543] , and wine [H3196] bottles [H4997] , old [H1087] , and rent [H1234] , and bound up [H6887] ;

9:5 And old [H1087] shoes [H5275] and clouted [H2921] upon their feet [H7272] , and old [H1087] garments [H8008] upon them; and all the bread [H3899] of their provision [H6718] was dry [H3001] [and] mouldy [H5350] .

9:6 And they went [H3212] to Joshua [H3091] unto the camp [H4264] at Gilgal [H1537] , and said [H559] unto him, and to the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] , We be come [H935] from a far [H7350] country [H776] : now therefore make [H3772] ye a league [H1285] with us.

9:7 And the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] said [H559] unto the Hivites [H2340] , Peradventure [H194] ye dwell [H3427] among [H7130] us; and how shall we make [H3772] a league [H1285] with you?

9:8 And they said [H559] unto Joshua [H3091] , We [are] thy servants [H5650] . And Joshua [H3091] said [H559] unto them, Who [are] ye? and from whence [H370] come [H935] ye?

9:9 And they said [H559] unto him, From a very [H3966] far [H7350] country [H776] thy servants [H5650] are come [H935] because of the name [H8034] of the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] : for we have heard [H8085] the fame [H8089] of him, and all that he did [H6213] in Egypt [H4714] ,

9:10 And all that he did [H6213] to the two [H8147] kings [H4428] of the Amorites [H567] , that [were] beyond [H5676] Jordan [H3383] , to Sihon [H5511] king [H4428] of Heshbon [H2809] , and to Og [H5747] king [H4428] of Bashan [H1316] , which [was] at Ashtaroth [H6252] .

9:11 Wherefore our elders [H2205] and all the inhabitants [H3427] of our country [H776] spake [H559] to us, saying [H559] , Take [H3947] victuals [H6720] with you [H3027] for the journey [H1870] , and go [H3212] to meet [H7125] them, and say [H559] unto them, We [are] your servants [H5650] : therefore now make [H3772] ye a league [H1285] with us.(with you: Heb. in your hand)

9:12 This our bread [H3899] we took hot [H2525] [for] our provision [H6679] out of our houses [H1004] on the day [H3117] we came forth [H3318] to go [H3212] unto you; but now, behold, it is dry [H3001] , and it is mouldy [H5350] :

9:13 And these bottles [H4997] of wine [H3196] , which we filled [H4390] , [were] new [H2319] ; and, behold, they be rent [H1234] : and these our garments [H8008] and our shoes [H5275] are become old [H1086] by reason of the very [H3966] long [H7230] journey [H1870] .

9:14 And the men [H582] took [H3947] of their victuals [H6718] , and asked [H7592] not [counsel] at the mouth [H6310] of the LORD [H3068] .(the men: or, they received the men by reason of their victuals)

9:15 And Joshua [H3091] made [H6213] peace [H7965] with them, and made [H3772] a league [H1285] with them, to let them live [H2421] : and the princes [H5387] of the congregation [H5712] sware [H7650] unto them.

9:16 And it came to pass at the end [H7097] of three [H7969] days [H3117] after [H310] they had made [H3772] a league [H1285] with them, that they heard [H8085] that they [were] their neighbours [H7138] , and [that] they dwelt [H3427] among [H7130] them.

9:17 And the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] journeyed [H5265] , and came [H935] unto their cities [H5892] on the third [H7992] day [H3117] . Now their cities [H5892] [were] Gibeon [H1391] , and Chephirah [H3716] , and Beeroth [H881] , and Kirjathjearim [H7157] .

9:18 And the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] smote [H5221] them not, because the princes [H5387] of the congregation [H5712] had sworn [H7650] unto them by the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] . And all the congregation [H5712] murmured [H3885] against the princes [H5387] .

9:19 But all the princes [H5387] said [H559] unto all the congregation [H5712] , We have sworn [H7650] unto them by the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] : now therefore we may [H3201] not touch [H5060] them.

9:20 This we will do [H6213] to them; we will even let them live [H2421] , lest wrath [H7110] be upon us, because of the oath [H7621] which we sware [H7650] unto them.

9:21 And the princes [H5387] said [H559] unto them, Let them live [H2421] ; but let them be hewers [H2404] of wood [H6086] and drawers [H7579] of water [H4325] unto all the congregation [H5712] ; as the princes [H5387] had promised [H1696] them.

9:22 And Joshua [H3091] called [H7121] for them, and he spake [H1696] unto them, saying [H559] , Wherefore have ye beguiled [H7411] us, saying [H559] , We [are] very [H3966] far [H7350] from you; when ye dwell [H3427] among [H7130] us?

9:23 Now therefore ye [are] cursed [H779] , and there shall none of you be freed [H3772] from being bondmen [H5650] , and hewers [H2404] of wood [H6086] and drawers [H7579] of water [H4325] for the house [H1004] of my God [H430] .(none: Heb. not be cut off from you)

9:24 And they answered [H6030] Joshua [H3091] , and said [H559] , Because it was certainly [H5046] told [H5046] thy servants [H5650] , how that the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] commanded [H6680] his servant [H5650] Moses [H4872] to give [H5414] you all the land [H776] , and to destroy [H8045] all the inhabitants [H3427] of the land [H776] from before [H6440] you, therefore we were sore [H3966] afraid [H3372] of our lives [H5315] because [H6440] of you, and have done [H6213] this thing [H1697] .

9:25 And now, behold, we [H2009] [are] in thine hand [H3027] : as it seemeth [H5869] good [H2896] and right [H3477] unto thee to do [H6213] unto us, do [H6213] .

9:26 And so did [H6213] he unto them, and delivered [H5337] them out of the hand [H3027] of the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] , that they slew [H2026] them not.

9:27 And Joshua [H3091] made [H5414] them that day [H3117] hewers [H2404] of wood [H6086] and drawers [H7579] of water [H4325] for the congregation [H5712] , and for the altar [H4196] of the LORD [H3068] , even unto this day [H3117] , in the place [H4725] which he should choose [H977] .(made: Heb. gave, or, delivered to be)
