The Holy Bible - The Book of Joshua, Chapter 10 (Latin)
1Now it came to pass, when Adonizedec king of Jerusalem had heard how Joshua had taken Ai, and had utterly destroyed it; as he had done to Jericho and her king, so he had done to Ai and her king; and how the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel, and were among them;
2That they feared greatly, because Gibeon was a great city, as one of the royal cities, and because it was greater than Ai, and all the men thereof were mighty.
3Wherefore Adonizedec king of Jerusalem, sent unto Hoham king of Hebron, and unto Piram king of Jarmuth, and unto Japhia king of Lachish, and unto Debir king of Eglon, saying,
4Come up unto me, and help me, that we may smite Gibeon: for it hath made peace with Joshua and with the children of Israel.
5Therefore the five kings of the Amorites, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, the king of Eglon, gathered themselves together, and went up, they and all their hosts, and encamped before Gibeon, and made war against it.
6And the men of Gibeon sent unto Joshua to the camp to Gilgal, saying, Slack not thy hand from thy servants; come up to us quickly, and save us, and help us: for all the kings of the Amorites that dwell in the mountains are gathered together against us.
7So Joshua ascended from Gilgal, he, and all the people of war with him, and all the mighty men of valour.
8And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee.
9Joshua therefore came unto them suddenly, and went up from Gilgal all night.
10And the LORD discomfited them before Israel, and slew them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, and chased them along the way that goeth up to Bethhoron, and smote them to Azekah, and unto Makkedah.
11And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.
12Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.
13And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.
14And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel.
15And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, unto the camp to Gilgal.
16But these five kings fled, and hid themselves in a cave at Makkedah.
17And it was told Joshua, saying, The five kings are found hid in a cave at Makkedah.
18And Joshua said, Roll great stones upon the mouth of the cave, and set men by it for to keep them:
19And stay ye not, but pursue after your enemies, and smite the hindmost of them; suffer them not to enter into their cities: for the LORD your God hath delivered them into your hand.
20And it came to pass, when Joshua and the children of Israel had made an end of slaying them with a very great slaughter, till they were consumed, that the rest which remained of them entered into fenced cities.
21And all the people returned to the camp to Joshua at Makkedah in peace: none moved his tongue against any of the children of Israel.
22Then said Joshua, Open the mouth of the cave, and bring out those five kings unto me out of the cave.
23And they did so, and brought forth those five kings unto him out of the cave, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon.
24And it came to pass, when they brought out those kings unto Joshua, that Joshua called for all the men of Israel, and said unto the captains of the men of war which went with him, Come near, put your feet upon the necks of these kings. And they came near, and put their feet upon the necks of them.
25And Joshua said unto them, Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage: for thus shall the LORD do to all your enemies against whom ye fight.
26And afterward Joshua smote them, and slew them, and hanged them on five trees: and they were hanging upon the trees until the evening.
27And it came to pass at the time of the going down of the sun, that Joshua commanded, and they took them down off the trees, and cast them into the cave wherein they had been hid, and laid great stones in the cave's mouth, which remain until this very day.
28And that day Joshua took Makkedah, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof he utterly destroyed, them, and all the souls that were therein; he let none remain: and he did to the king of Makkedah as he did unto the king of Jericho.
29Then Joshua passed from Makkedah, and all Israel with him, unto Libnah, and fought against Libnah:
30And the LORD delivered it also, and the king thereof, into the hand of Israel; and he smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that were therein; he let none remain in it; but did unto the king thereof as he did unto the king of Jericho.
31And Joshua passed from Libnah, and all Israel with him, unto Lachish, and encamped against it, and fought against it:
32And the LORD delivered Lachish into the hand of Israel, which took it on the second day, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that were therein, according to all that he had done to Libnah.
33Then Horam king of Gezer came up to help Lachish; and Joshua smote him and his people, until he had left him none remaining.
34And from Lachish Joshua passed unto Eglon, and all Israel with him; and they encamped against it, and fought against it:
35And they took it on that day, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that were therein he utterly destroyed that day, according to all that he had done to Lachish.
36And Joshua went up from Eglon, and all Israel with him, unto Hebron; and they fought against it:
37And they took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof, and all the souls that were therein; he left none remaining, according to all that he had done to Eglon; but destroyed it utterly, and all the souls that were therein.
38And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to Debir;
39(10:40)And he took it, and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof; and they smote them with the edge of the sword, and utterly destroyed all the souls that were therein; he left none remaining: as he had done to Hebron, so he did to Debir, and to the king thereof; as he had done also to Libnah, and to her king.
40(10:41)So Joshua smote all the country of the hills, and of the south, and of the vale, and of the springs, and all their kings: he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the LORD God of Israel commanded.
41(10:42)And Joshua smote them from Kadeshbarnea even unto Gaza, and all the country of Goshen, even unto Gibeon.
42(10:43)And all these kings and their land did Joshua take at one time, because the LORD God of Israel fought for Israel.
43(10:44)And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, unto the camp to Gilgal.
1quae cum audisset Adonisedec rex Hierusalem quod scilicet cepisset Iosue Ahi et subvertisset eam sicut enim fecerat Hiericho et regi eius sic fecit Ahi et regi illius et quod transfugissent Gabaonitae ad Israhel et essent foederati eorum
2timuit valde urbs enim magna erat Gabaon et una regalium civitatum et maior oppido Ahi omnesque bellatores eius fortissimi
3misit ergo Adonisedec rex Hierusalem ad Oham regem Hebron et ad Pharam regem Hieremoth ad Iaphie quoque regem Lachis et ad Dabir regem Eglon dicens
4ascendite ad me et ferte praesidium ut expugnemus Gabaon quare transfugerit ad Iosue et filios Israhel
5congregati igitur ascenderunt quinque reges Amorreorum rex Hierusalem rex Hebron rex Hieremoth rex Lachis rex Eglon simul cum exercitibus suis et castrametati sunt circa Gabaon obpugnantes eam
6habitatores autem Gabaon urbis obsessae miserunt ad Iosue qui tunc morabatur in castris apud Galgalam et dixerunt ei ne retrahas manus tuas ab auxilio servorum tuorum ascende cito et libera nos ferque praesidium convenerunt enim adversum nos omnes reges Amorreorum qui habitant in montanis
7ascenditque Iosue de Galgalis et omnis exercitus bellatorum cum eo viri fortissimi
8dixitque Dominus ad Iosue ne timeas eos in manus enim tuas tradidi illos nullus tibi ex eis resistere poterit
9inruit itaque Iosue super eos repente tota ascendens nocte de Galgalis
10et conturbavit eos Dominus a facie Israhel contrivitque plaga magna in Gabaon ac persecutus est per viam ascensus Bethoron et percussit usque Azeca et Maceda
11cumque fugerent filios Israhel et essent in descensu Bethoron Dominus misit super eos lapides magnos de caelo usque Azeca et mortui sunt multo plures lapidibus grandinis quam quos gladio percusserant filii Israhel
12tunc locutus est Iosue Domino in die qua tradidit Amorreum in conspectu filiorum Israhel dixitque coram eis sol contra Gabaon ne movearis et luna contra vallem Ahialon
13steteruntque sol et luna donec ulcisceretur se gens de inimicis suis nonne scriptum est hoc in libro Iustorum stetit itaque sol in medio caeli et non festinavit occumbere spatio unius diei
14non fuit ante et postea tam longa dies oboediente Domino voci hominis et pugnante pro Israhel
15reversusque est Iosue cum omni Israhel in castra Galgalae
16fugerant enim quinque reges et se absconderant in spelunca urbis Maceda
17nuntiatumque est Iosue quod inventi essent quinque reges latentes in spelunca Maceda
18qui praecepit sociis et ait volvite saxa ingentia ad os speluncae et ponite viros industrios qui clausos custodiant
19vos autem nolite stare sed persequimini hostes et extremos quosque fugientium caedite ne dimittatis eos urbium suarum intrare praesidia quos tradidit Dominus Deus in manus vestras
20caesis igitur adversariis plaga magna et usque ad internicionem paene consumptis hii qui Israhel effugere potuerunt ingressi sunt civitates munitas
21reversusque est omnis exercitus ad Iosue in Maceda ubi tunc erant castra sani et integro numero nullusque contra filios Israhel muttire ausus est
22praecepitque Iosue dicens aperite os speluncae et producite ad me quinque reges qui in ea latitant
23fecerunt ministri ut sibi fuerat imperatum et eduxerunt ad eum quinque reges de spelunca regem Hierusalem regem Hebron regem Hieremoth regem Lachis regem Eglon
24cumque educti essent ad eum vocavit omnes viros Israhel et ait ad principes exercitus qui secum erant ite et ponite pedes super colla regum istorum qui cum perrexissent et subiectorum pedibus colla calcarent
25rursum ait ad eos nolite timere nec paveatis confortamini et estote robusti sic enim faciet Dominus cunctis hostibus vestris adversum quos dimicatis
26percussitque Iosue et interfecit eos atque suspendit super quinque stipites fueruntque suspensi usque ad vesperum
27cumque occumberet sol praecepit sociis ut deponerent eos de patibulis qui depositos proiecerunt in speluncam in qua latuerant et posuerunt super os eius saxa ingentia quae permanent usque in praesens
28eodem die Macedam quoque cepit Iosue et percussit in ore gladii regemque illius interfecit et omnes habitatores eius non dimisit in ea saltim parvas reliquias fecitque regi Maceda sicut fecerat regi Hiericho
29transivit cum omni Israhel de Maceda in Lebna et pugnabat contra eam
30quam tradidit Dominus cum rege suo in manu Israhel percusseruntque urbem in ore gladii et omnes habitatores eius non dimiserunt in ea ullas reliquias feceruntque regi Lebna sicut fecerant regi Hiericho
31de Lebna transivit in Lachis et exercitu per gyrum disposito obpugnabat eam
32tradiditque Dominus Lachis in manu Israhel et cepit eam die altero atque percussit in ore gladii omnemque animam quae fuerat in ea sicut fecerat Lebna
33eo tempore ascendit Hiram rex Gazer ut auxiliaretur Lachis quem percussit Iosue cum omni populo eius usque ad internicionem
34transivitque de Lachis in Eglon et circumdedit
35atque expugnavit eam eadem die percussitque in ore gladii omnes animas quae erant in ea iuxta omnia quae fecerat Lachis
36ascendit quoque cum omni Israhele de Eglon in Hebron et pugnavit contra eam
37cepitque et percussit in ore gladii regem quoque eius et omnia oppida regionis illius universasque animas quae in ea fuerant commoratae non reliquit in ea ullas reliquias sicut fecerat Eglon sic fecit et Hebron cuncta quae in ea repperit consumens gladio
38inde reversus in Dabir
39cepit eam atque vastavit
40regem quoque eius et omnia per circuitum oppida percussit in ore gladii non dimisit in ea ullas reliquias sicut fecerat Hebron et Lebna et regibus earum sic fecit Dabir et regi illius
41percussit itaque Iosue omnem terram montanam et meridianam atque campestrem et Asedoth cum regibus suis non dimisit in ea ullas reliquias sed omne quod spirare poterat interfecit sicut praeceperat ei Dominus Deus Israhel
42a Cadesbarne usque Gazam omnem terram Gosen usque Gabaon
43universos reges et regiones eorum uno cepit impetu atque vastavit Dominus enim Deus Israhel pugnabat pro eo
44reversusque est cum omni Israhele ad locum castrorum in Galgala
