Chapter 91


At that time, after the death of
Joshua, the children of the Canaanites were still in the land, and the
Israelites resolved to drive them out.

And the children of Israel asked of the
Lord, saying, Who shall first go up for us to the Canaanites to fight against
them? and the Lord said,
Judah shall go up.

And the children of Judah said to
Simeon, Go up with us into our lot, and we will fight against the Canaanites
and we likewise will go up with you, in your lot, so the children of Simeon
went with the children of

And the children of Judah went up and
fought against the Canaanites, so the Lord delivered the Canaanites into the
hands of the children of
Judah, and they
smote them in Bezek, ten thousand men.

And they fought with Adonibezek in Bezek, and he fled
from before them, and they pursued him and caught him, and they took hold of
him and cut off his thumbs and great toes.

And Adonibezek
and ten
kings having their thumbs and great toes cut off, gathered their meat under my
table, as I have done, so God has requited me, and they brought him to
Jerusalem and he died

And the children of Simeon went with
the children of
Judah, and they
smote the Canaanites with the edge of the sword.

And the Lord was with the children of
Judah, and they
possessed the mountain, and the children of Joseph went up to
Bethel, the same is
Luz, and the Lord was with them.

And the children of Joseph spied out Bethel, and the
watchmen saw a man going forth from the city, and they caught him and said unto
him, Show us now the entrance of the city and we will show kindness to thee.

And that man showed them the entrance
of the city, and the children of Joseph came and smote the City with the edge
of the sword.

And the man with his family they sent
away, and he went to the Hittites and he built a city, and he called the name
thereof Luz, so all the Israelites dwelt in their cities, and the children at
Israel dwelt in their cities, and the children of Israel served the Lord all
the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders, who had lengthened their
days after Joshua, and saw the great work of the Lord, which he had performed
for Israel.

And the elders judged Israel after the
death of Joshua for seventeen years.

And all the elders also fought the
battles of
Israel against the
Canaanites and the Lord drove the Canaanites from before the children of
Israel, in order to
place the Israelites in their land.

And he accomplished all the words
which he had spoken to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and the oath which he had
sworn, to give to them and to their children, the land of the Canaanites.

And the Lord gave to the children of Israel the whole land of Canaan, as he had
sworn to their ancestors, and the Lord gave them rest from those around them,
and the children of
Israel dwelt
securely in their cities.

Blessed be the Lord for ever, amen,
and amen.

Strengthen yourselves, and let the
hearts of all you that trust in the Lord be of good courage.
