Joshua chapter 11

1
When Jabin king of Hazor heard of this, he sent to Jobab king of Madon, and to the king of Shimron, and to the king of Ach'shaph,
2
and to the kings who were in the northern hill country, and in the Arabah south of Chin'neroth, and in the lowland, and in Naphoth-dor on the west,
3
to the Canaanites in the east and the west, the Amorites, the Hittites, the Per'izzites, and the Jeb'usites in the hill country, and the Hivites under Hermon in the land of Mizpah.
4
And they came out, with all their troops, a great host, in number like the sand that is upon the seashore, with very many horses and chariots.
5
And all these kings joined their forces, and came and encamped together at the waters of Merom, to fight with Israel.
6
And the LORD said to Joshua, "Do not be afraid of them, for tomorrow at this time I will give over all of them, slain, to Israel; you shall hamstring their horses, and burn their chariots with fire."
7
So Joshua came suddenly upon them with all his people of war, by the waters of Merom, and fell upon them.
8
And the LORD gave them into the hand of Israel, who smote them and chased them as far as Great Sidon and Mis'rephoth-ma'im, and eastward as far as the valley of Mizpeh; and they smote them, until they left none remaining.
9
And Joshua did to them as the LORD bade him; he hamstrung their horses, and burned their chariots with fire.
10
And Joshua turned back at that time, and took Hazor, and smote its king with the sword; for Hazor formerly was the head of all those kingdoms.
11
And they put to the sword all who were in it, utterly destroying them; there was none left that breathed, and he burned Hazor with fire.
12
And all the cities of those kings, and all their kings, Joshua took, and smote them with the edge of the sword, utterly destroying them, as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded.
13
But none of the cities that stood on mounds did Israel burn, except Hazor only; that Joshua burned.
14
And all the spoil of these cities and the cattle, the people of Israel took for their booty; but every man they smote with the edge of the sword, until they had destroyed them, and they did not leave any that breathed.
15
As the LORD had commanded Moses his servant, so Moses commanded Joshua, and so Joshua did; he left nothing undone of all that the LORD had commanded Moses.
16
So Joshua took all that land, the hill country and all the Negeb and all the land of Goshen and the lowland and the Arabah and the hill country of Israel and its lowland
17
from Mount Halak, that rises toward Se'ir, as far as Ba'al-gad in the valley of Lebanon below Mount Hermon. And he took all their kings, and smote them, and put them to death.
18
Joshua made war a long time with all those kings.
19
There was not a city that made peace with the people of Israel, except the Hivites, the inhabitants of Gibeon; they took all in battle.
20
For it was the LORD's doing to harden their hearts that they should come against Israel in battle, in order that they should be utterly destroyed, and should receive no mercy but be exterminated, as the LORD commanded Moses.
21
And Joshua came at that time, and wiped out the Anakim from the hill country, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, and from all the hill country of Judah, and from all the hill country of Israel; Joshua utterly destroyed them with their cities.
22
There was none of the Anakim left in the land of the people of Israel; only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod, did some remain.
23
So Joshua took the whole land, according to all that the LORD had spoken to Moses; and Joshua gave it for an inheritance to Israel according to their tribal allotments. And the land had rest from war.

Joshua chapter 12

1
Now these are the kings of the land, whom the people of Israel defeated, and took possession of their land beyond the Jordan toward the sunrising, from the valley of the Arnon to Mount Hermon, with all the Arabah eastward:
2
Sihon king of the Amorites who dwelt at Heshbon, and ruled from Aro'er, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, and from the middle of the valley as far as the river Jabbok, the boundary of the Ammonites, that is, half of Gilead,
3
and the Arabah to the Sea of Chin'neroth eastward, and in the direction of Beth-jesh'imoth, to the sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, southward to the foot of the slopes of Pisgah;
4
and Og king of Bashan, one of the remnant of the Reph'aim, who dwelt at Ash'taroth and at Ed're-i
5
and ruled over Mount Hermon and Sal'ecah and all Bashan to the boundary of the Gesh'urites and the Ma-ac'athites, and over half of Gilead to the boundary of Sihon king of Heshbon.
6
Moses, the servant of the LORD, and the people of Israel defeated them; and Moses the servant of the LORD gave their land for a possession to the Reubenites and the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manas'seh.
7
And these are the kings of the land whom Joshua and the people of Israel defeated on the west side of the Jordan, from Ba'al-gad in the valley of Lebanon to Mount Halak, that rises toward Se'ir (and Joshua gave their land to the tribes of Israel as a possession according to their allotments,
8
in the hill country, in the lowland, in the Arabah, in the slopes, in the wilderness, and in the Negeb, the land of the Hittites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Per'izzites, the Hivites, and the Jeb'usites):
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 Makke'dah, one; the king of Bethel, one;
17
the king of Tap'puah, one; the king of Hepher, one;
18
the king of Aphek, one; the king of Lashar'on, one;
19
the king of Madon, one; the king of Hazor, one;
20
the king of Shim'ron-me'ron, one; the king of Ach'shaph, one;
21
the king of Ta'anach, one; the king of Megid'do, one;
22
the king of Kedesh, one; the king of Jok'ne-am in Carmel, one;
23
the king of Dor in Naphath-dor, one; the king of Goi'im in Galilee, one;
24
the king of Tirzah, one: in all, thirty-one kings.

Joshua chapter 13

1
Now Joshua was old and advanced in years; and the LORD said to him, "You are old and advanced in years, and there remains yet very much land to be possessed.
2
This is the land that yet remains: all the regions of the Philistines, and all those of the Gesh'urites
3
(from the Shihor, which is east of Egypt, northward to the boundary of Ekron, it is reckoned as Canaanite; there are five rulers of the Philistines, those of Gaza, Ashdod, Ash'kelon, Gath, and Ekron), and those of the Avvim,
4
in the south, all the land of the Canaanites, and Mear'ah which belongs to the Sido'nians, to Aphek, to the boundary of the Amorites,
5
and the land of the Geb'alites, and all Lebanon, toward the sunrising, from Ba'al-gad below Mount Hermon to the entrance of Hamath,
6
all the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon to Mis'rephoth-ma'im, even all the Sido'nians. I will myself drive them out from before the people of Israel; only allot the land to Israel for an inheritance, as I have commanded you.
7
Now therefore divide this land for an inheritance to the nine tribes and half the tribe of Manas'seh."
8
With the other half of the tribe of Manas'seh the Reubenites and the Gadites received their inheritance, which Moses gave them, beyond the Jordan eastward, as Moses the servant of the LORD gave them:
9
from Aro'er, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, and the city that is in the middle of the valley, and all the tableland of Med'eba as far as Dibon;
10
and all the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon, as far as the boundary of the Ammonites;
11
and Gilead, and the region of the Gesh'urites and Ma-ac'athites, and all Mount Hermon, and all Bashan to Sal'ecah;
12
all the kingdom of Og in Bashan, who reigned in Ash'taroth and in Ed're-i (he alone was left of the remnant of the Reph'aim); these Moses had defeated and driven out.
13
Yet the people of Israel did not drive out the Gesh'urites or the Ma-ac'athites; but Geshur and Ma'acath dwell in the midst of Israel to this day.
14
To the tribe of Levi alone Moses gave no inheritance; the offerings by fire to the LORD God of Israel are their inheritance, as he said to him.
15
And Moses gave an inheritance to the tribe of the Reubenites according to their families.
16
So their territory was from Aro'er, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, and the city that is in the middle of the valley, and all the tableland by Med'eba;
17
with Heshbon, and all its cities that are in the tableland; Dibon, and Ba'moth-ba'al, and Beth-ba'al-me'on,
18
and Jahaz, and Ked'emoth, and Meph'aath,
19
and Kir'iatha'im, and Sibmah, and Zer'eth-sha'har on the hill of the valley,
20
and Beth-pe'or, and the slopes of Pisgah, and Beth-jesh'imoth,
21
that is, all the cities of the tableland, and all the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon, whom Moses defeated with the leaders of Mid'ian, Evi and Rekem and Zur and Hur and Reba, the princes of Sihon, who dwelt in the land.
22
Balaam also, the son of Be'or, the soothsayer, the people of Israel killed with the sword among the rest of their slain.
23
And the border of the people of Reuben was the Jordan as a boundary. This was the inheritance of the Reubenites, according to their families with their cities and villages.
24
And Moses gave an inheritance also to the tribe of the Gadites, according to their families.
25
Their territory was Jazer, and all the cities of Gilead, and half the land of the Ammonites, to Aro'er, which is east of Rabbah,
26
and from Heshbon to Ra'math-miz'peh and Bet'onim, and from Mahana'im to the territory of Debir,
27
and in the valley Beth-ha'ram, Beth-nim'rah, Succoth, and Zaphon, the rest of the kingdom of Sihon king of Heshbon, having the Jordan as a boundary, to the lower end of the Sea of Chin'nereth, eastward beyond the Jordan.
28
This is the inheritance of the Gadites according to their families, with their cities and villages.
29
And Moses gave an inheritance to the half-tribe of Manas'seh; it was allotted to the half-tribe of the Manas'sites according to their families.
30
Their region extended from Mahana'im, through all Bashan, the whole kingdom of Og king of Bashan, and all the towns of Ja'ir, which are in Bashan, sixty cities,
31
and half Gilead, and Ash'taroth, and Ed're-i, the cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan; these were allotted to the people of Machir the son of Manas'seh for the half of the Machirites according to their families.
32
These are the inheritances which Moses distributed in the plains of Moab, beyond the Jordan east of Jericho.
33
But to the tribe of Levi Moses gave no inheritance; the LORD God of Israel is their inheritance, as he said to them.

Acts chapter 9

1
But Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest
2
and asked him for letters to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.
3
Now as he journeyed he approached Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed about him.
4
And he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?"
5
And he said, "Who are you, Lord?" And he said, "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting;
6
but rise and enter the city, and you will be told what you are to do."
7
The men who were traveling with him stood speechless, hearing the voice but seeing no one.
8
Saul arose from the ground; and when his eyes were opened, he could see nothing; so they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus.
9
And for three days he was without sight, and neither ate nor drank.
10
Now there was a disciple at Damascus named Anani'as. The Lord said to him in a vision, "Anani'as." And he said, "Here I am, Lord."
11
And the Lord said to him, "Rise and go to the street called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for a man of Tarsus named Saul; for behold, he is praying,
12
and he has seen a man named Anani'as come in and lay his hands on him so that he might regain his sight."
13
But Anani'as answered, "Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how much evil he has done to thy saints at Jerusalem;
14
and here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all who call upon thy name."
15
But the Lord said to him, "Go, for he is a chosen instrument of mine to carry my name before the Gentiles and kings and the sons of Israel;
16
for I will show him how much he must suffer for the sake of my name."
17
So Anani'as departed and entered the house. And laying his hands on him he said, "Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus who appeared to you on the road by which you came, has sent me that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit."
18
And immediately something like scales fell from his eyes and he regained his sight. Then he rose and was baptized,
19
and took food and was strengthened. For several days he was with the disciples at Damascus.
20
And in the synagogues immediately he proclaimed Jesus, saying, "He is the Son of God."
21
And all who heard him were amazed, and said, "Is not this the man who made havoc in Jerusalem of those who called on this name? And he has come here for this purpose, to bring them bound before the chief priests."
22
But Saul increased all the more in strength, and confounded the Jews who lived in Damascus by proving that Jesus was the Christ.
23
When many days had passed, the Jews plotted to kill him,
24
but their plot became known to Saul. They were watching the gates day and night, to kill him;
25
but his disciples took him by night and let him down over the wall, lowering him in a basket.
26
And when he had come to Jerusalem he attempted to join the disciples; and they were all afraid of him, for they did not believe that he was a disciple.
27
But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared to them how on the road he had seen the Lord, who spoke to him, and how at Damascus he had preached boldly in the name of Jesus.
28
So he went in and out among them at Jerusalem,
29
preaching boldly in the name of the Lord. And he spoke and disputed against the Hellenists; but they were seeking to kill him.
30
And when the brethren knew it, they brought him down to Caesare'a, and sent him off to Tarsus.
31
So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Sama'ria had peace and was built up; and walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit it was multiplied.
32
Now as Peter went here and there among them all, he came down also to the saints that lived at Lydda.
33
There he found a man named Aene'as, who had been bedridden for eight years and was paralyzed.
34
And Peter said to him, "Aene'as, Jesus Christ heals you; rise and make your bed." And immediately he rose.
35
And all the residents of Lydda and Sharon saw him, and they turned to the Lord.
36
Now there was at Joppa a disciple named Tabitha, which means Dorcas. She was full of good works and acts of charity.
37
In those days she fell sick and died; and when they had washed her, they laid her in an upper room.
38
Since Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples, hearing that Peter was there, sent two men to him entreating him, "Please come to us without delay."
39
So Peter rose and went with them. And when he had come, they took him to the upper room. All the widows stood beside him weeping, and showing tunics and other garments which Dorcas made while she was with them.
40
But Peter put them all outside and knelt down and prayed; then turning to the body he said, "Tabitha, rise." And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up.
41
And he gave her his hand and lifted her up. Then calling the saints and widows he presented her alive.
42
And it became known throughout all Joppa, and many believed in the Lord.
43
And he stayed in Joppa for many days with one Simon, a tanner.
