and, putting in at Caesarea, going up and saluting the assembly, went down unto Antioch;

They, however, passing through from Perga, arrived at Antioch of Pisidia; and, going into the synagogue on the sabbath-day, sat down. And, after the reading of the law and the prophets, the synagogue-rulers sent unto them, saying - Brethren! if there is in you a word of exhortation unto the people, say on. And Paul, standing up, and making a sign with his hand, said - Ye men of Israel! and such as revere God! hearken: - read more.
The God of this people Israel, chose our fathers, and, the people, he exalted, by their sojourn in the land of Egypt, - and, with a high arm, brought he them out of it; And, for the time of about forty years, bare with their manners in the desert; And, overthrowing seven nations in the land of Canaan, gave them their land as an inheritance - about four hundred and fifty years. And, after these things, he gave them judges, until Samuel the prophet. And, from that time, they asked for themselves a king, and God gave them Saul, son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, during forty years; And, setting him aside, raised up, David, unto them for king, - of whom he also said, bearing witness - I have found David, the son of Jesse, - a manaccording to my heart, who will do all my will. From this man's seed, hath God, according to promise, brought unto Israel, a saviour - Jesus: John, beforehand proclaiming, before the face of his coming in, an immersion of repentance, unto all the people of Israel. And, as John was fulfilling his course, he was saying - Whom are ye supposing that I am? I, am not he! But lo! there cometh, after me, one of whom I am not worthy, the sandals of his feet, to loosen. Brethren! sons of the race of Abraham, and those who among you revere God, - unto you, hath this word of salvation been sent forth. For, they who were dwelling in Jerusalem, and their rulers, not recognising him, have, by judging him, fulfilled, the very voices of the prophets which every sabbath are being read; And, though no single cause of death they found, yet claimed they of Pilate that he should be slain. And, when they had finished all those things which, concerning him, had been written, taking him down from the tree, they put him in a tomb. But, God, raised him from among the dead: Who appeared, during many days, unto them who had come up with him from Galilee unto Jerusalem; who, indeed, noware his witnesses unto the people. We, therefore, unto you, bring the good news, as to the promise which, unto our fathers, was made, - That God hath fulfilled, the same, for our children, by raising up Jesus: as also, in the second psalm, it is written - My son, art, thou: I, this day, have begotten thee. And, in that he raised him from among the dead, no more destined to return unto corruption, on this wise hath he spoken - I will give unto you the faithful lovingkindnesses of David. Wherefore also, in a different place , he saith - Thou wilt not give thy man of lovingkindness to see corruption. For, David, indeed, unto his own generation having done service, by the counsel of God, fell asleep, and was added unto fathers, and saw corruption; But, he whom God hath raised, did not see corruption. Be it known unto you, therefore, brethren, - that, through this man, unto you, remission of sins is declared; And, from all things from which ye could not, by the law of Moses, be justified, by this man, everyone that believeth, is justified. Be taking heed, therefore, lest that come upon you which hath been spoken in the prophets - See, ye despisers, and marvel, and disappear: in that, a work, am, I, working in your days, - a work, which in nowise will ye believe, though one relate it in full unto you. And, as they were going out, they kept on beseeching that, on the ensuing sabbath, might be spoken unto them these things. And, when the congregation was broken up, there followed many of the Jews, and of the devout proselytes, with Paul and Barnabas; who, indeed, in speaking unto them, went on persuading them to abide in the favour of God. And, on the coming sabbath, almost all the city, was gathered together, to hear the word of God. But, the Jews, seeing, the multitudes, were filled with jealousy, - and began speaking against the things which, by Paul, were being spoken, defaming them. And Paul and Barnabas, speaking boldly, said - Unto you, was it necessary, that the word of God should first be spoken: seeing ye are thrusting it from you, and, unworthy, are judging yourselves of the age-abiding life, lo! we turn unto the nations; For so hath the Lord commanded us - I have set thee for a light of nations, that thou mayest be for salvation unto the end of the earth. And they of the nations, hearing this , began to rejoice, and to be glorifying God, and they believed - as many as had become disposed for life age-abiding. And the word of the Lord went on to be carried through the whole country. But, the Jews, urged on the devout women of the higher class, and the chief men of the city, and roused up a persecution against Paul and Barnabas, - and thrust them out from their bounds. But they, shaking off the dust of their feet against them, came into Iconium. And, the disciples, were filled with joy, and with Holy Spirit.

persecutions, sufferings, what manner of things, befell me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra, what manner of persecutions, I endured, - and, out of all, the Lord, rescued me; -

But there came thither, from Antioch and Iconium, Jews, and, persuading the multitudes, and stoning Paul, they dragged him outside the city, supposing him to be dead. Howbeit, the disciples surrounding him, he rose up, and entered into the city. And, on the morrow, he went forth, with Barnabas, unto Derbe. Delivering the good news unto that city also, and making a good number of disciples, they returned unto Lystra, and unto Iconium, and unto Antioch, - read more.
confirming the souls of the disciples, beseeching them to abide in the faith, and declaring that, through many tribulations, must we enter into the kingdom of God.


Then, seemed it good unto the Apostles and the Elders with the whole Assembly to send chosen men from among them unto Antioch, with Paul and Barnabas, - even Judas who is called Barsabbas, and Silas, men taking a lead among the brethren:

And, certain persons, coming down from Judea, began to teach the brethren - Except ye be circumcised according to the custom of Moses, ye cannot be saved. And, when Paul and Barnabas had had no little dissension and discussion with them, it was arranged that Paul and Barnabas and certain others from among them should go up unto the Apostles and Elders in Jerusalem concerning this question, They, therefore, being set forward by the Assembly, began passing through Phoenicia and Samaria, fully relating the conversion of them of the nations, and were causing great joy unto all the brethren. read more.
And, having arrived in Jerusalem, they were welcomed by the Assembly and the Apostles and the Elders; and they recounted all things God had done with them. But there had stood forth some of those who, from the sect of Pharisees, had believed, saying - It is needful to be circumcising them, also to charge them to be keeping the law of Moses. And the Apostles and Elders were gathered together to see about this matter. And, when much discussion had arisen, Peter standing up, said unto them - Brethren! Ye yourselves, well know that, in days long past, amongst you, God chose that, through my mouth, the nations should hear the word of the glad tidings, and believe. And, the heart-observing God, bare witness, - unto them, giving the Holy Spirit, just as, even unto us; and made no distinction at all betwixt us and them, by their faith, purifying their hearts. Now, therefore, why are ye proving God, that ye should put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which, neither our fathers, nor we, have been able to bear. But, through the favour of the Lord Jesus, we believe we shall be saved, in like manner as, even they. And all the throng held their peace, and began to hearken unto Barnabas and Paul relating how many signs and wonders God had done among the nations, through them. And, after they held their peace, James answered, saying - Brethren! hearken unto me. Symeon, hath fully told how God, first visited, to take out of the nations, a people for his name. And, with this, agree the words of the prophets, according as it is written - After these things, will I return, and will rebuild the tent of David that hath fallen, and, the ruins thereof, will I rebuild, and will set it up again: That the residues of men may seek out the Lord, and all the nations upon whom my name hath been called, saith the Lord that doeth these things, Known from age-past times. Wherefore, I, judge, not to be troubling them who, from the nations, are turning unto God; but to write unto them, to abstain from the pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from what is strangled, and from blood. For, Moses, out of ancient generation, hath, in every city, them who proclaim him; seeing, that in the synagogues, every sabbath, he is read. Then, seemed it good unto the Apostles and the Elders with the whole Assembly to send chosen men from among them unto Antioch, with Paul and Barnabas, - even Judas who is called Barsabbas, and Silas, men taking a lead among the brethren: writing through their hand - The Apostles and the Elder Brethren, unto the brethren throughout Antioch and Syria and Cilicia, who are from among the nations, wish joy! Inasmuch as we had heard that, certain from among us, had troubled you with words, dismantling your souls, - unto whom we had given no instructions, It seemed good unto us, coming to be of one accord, that we should choose men and send them unto you, with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, - men who have given up their lives in behalf of the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have sent, therefore, Judas and Silas, who also, themselves, by word of mouth, can tell you the same things. For it hath seemed good unto the Holy Spirit and unto us, no greater burden, to be laying upon you, than these necessary things: - To be abstaining from idol sacrifices, and from blood, and from what is strangled, and from fornication, - From which, if ye keep yourselves, ye shall prosper. Fare ye well. They, therefore, being let go, came down unto Antioch; and, having gathered together the throng, delivered the letter, and, when they read it, they rejoiced for the consolation. And, both Judas and Silas, being themselves also prophets, with much discourse, consoled and confirmed the brethren. And, when they had spent a time, they were let go, in peace, from the brethren, unto them who had sent them. But, Paul and Barnabas, tarried in Antioch, teaching and telling the joyful tidings, - along with many others also, - of the word of the Lord.


Now there were in Antioch, distributed through the existing assembly, - prophets and teachers: both Barnabas and Symeon who was called Niger, and Lucius the Cyrenian, Manaen also, Herod the tetrarch's foster-brother, and Saul.

and, from thence, they set sail for Antioch, whence they had been given up unto the favour of God for the work which they had fulfilled. And, when they had arrived and gathered together the assembly, they began recounting how many things God had done with them, and that he had opened, unto the nations, a door of faith.


They, therefore, who had been scattered abroad by reason of the tribulation that took place on account of Stephen, passed through as far as Phoenice and Cyprus and Antioch, unto no one speaking the word, save alone unto Jews. And there were some from among them, Cyprians and Cyrenians, who, indeed, coming unto Antioch, began speaking, even unto the Grecian Jews, announcing the glad tidings as to the Lord Jesus; And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number - they who believed - turned unto the Lord. read more.
And the matter was reported in the hearing of the assembly that was in Jerusalem, concerning them; and they sent forth Barnabas, as far as Antioch; Who, arriving, and seeing the favour which was of God, rejoiced, and went on to beseech all, with the purpose of their heart, to abide inthe Lord; Because he was a good man, and full of Holy Spirit and faith; and a considerable multitude were added unto the Lord. He went away, however, unto Tarsus, to seek up Saul; And, finding him, he brought him unto Antioch. And so it was with them, that, for a whole year, they were brought together in the assembly, and taught a considerable multitude; also that the disciples, first in Antioch, were called, Christians. Now, in these days, there came down from Jerusalem, prophets, unto Antioch. And one from among them, by name Agabus, rising up, gave a sign, through means of the Spirit, that, a great famine, was coming over all the inhabited earth; which, indeed, came to pass under Claudius. And, according as any one of the disciples was being prospered, they each one of them set apart something for ministering, to send unto the brethren, who dwelt in Jerusalem; - Which thing they also did, sending it unto the Elders, through the hand of Barnabas and Saul.


and, from thence, they set sail for Antioch, whence they had been given up unto the favour of God for the work which they had fulfilled. And, when they had arrived and gathered together the assembly, they began recounting how many things God had done with them, and that he had opened, unto the nations, a door of faith. And they spent no little time with the disciples.


But, when Cephas came unto Antioch, to the face, even , him, I resisted, because he stood condemned; For, before that certain came from James, with them of the nations, used he to eat; whereas, when they came, he used to withdraw, and keep himself separate, fearing them of the circumcision; And the rest of the Jews alsoused hypocrisy with him, so that, even Barnabas, was carried away by their hypocrisy. read more.
But, when I saw that they were not walking with straightforwardness as regardeth the truth of the glad-message, I said unto Cephas, before all: If, thou, although, a Jew, like them of the nations, and not like the Jews, dost live, how dost thou compel, them of the nations, to live like Jews? We, by nature Jews, and not sinners from among the nations,


So the soldiers, according to their orders, taking up Paul, brought him by night unto Antipatris;


And so it was, when the word of Samuel had reached all Israel, that Israel went forth to meet the Philistines in battle, and they encamped near Eben-ezer, while, the Philistines, encamped in Aphek. And the Philistines set themselves in array to meet Israel, and, when the battle spread, then was Israel smitten before the Philistines, - and there were slain of the army in the field about four thousand men. And, when the people came into the camp, the elders of Israel said, Wherefore hath Yahweh smitten us to-day, before the Philistines? Let us fetch unto us, out of Shiloh, the ark of the covenant of Yahweh, that, when it cometh into our midst, it may save us out of the hand of our enemies. read more.
So the people sent to Shiloh, and bare from thence the ark of the covenant of Yahweh of hosts, who inhabiteth the cherubim, - and, there, were the two sons of Eli, with the ark of the covenant of God, namely, Hophni and Phinehas. And so it was, when the ark of the covenant of Yahweh came into the camp, that all Israel brake out into a loud shout of joy, - so that the earth rang again. And, when the Philistines heard the noise of the shout, they said - What meaneth the noise of this loud shout of joy in the camp of the Hebrews? And they learned that, the ark of Yahweh, had come into the camp. And the Philistines were afraid, for they said - God hath come into the camp. And they said - Woe to us! for there hath not happened the like of this, heretofore. Woe to us! Who shall rescue us out of the hand of these majestic gods? These, are the gods, who smote the Egyptians with all manner of smiting in the desert! Take courage, and quit yourselves like men, ye Philistines, lest ye come into bondage to the Hebrews, as they have been in bondage unto you, - therefore must ye quit yourselves like men, and fight. So the Philistines fought, and Israel was smitten, and they fled every man to his home; and the slaughter became exceeding great, - and there fell of Israel - thirty thousand footmen. And, the ark of God, was taken, - and, the two sons of Eli, were slain, Hophni and Phinehas.


The king of Aphek, one, the king of Lassharon, one,


Ummah also and Aphek, and Rehob, - twenty-two cities, with their villages,


Now the Philistines gathered together all their hosts, towards Aphek, - and, the Israelites, were encamping by the fountain, that is in Jezreel.


Asher, dispossessed not the inhabitants of Acco, nor the inhabitants of Zidon, - nor of Ahlab, nor of Achzib, nor of Helbah, nor of Aphik, nor of Rehob;


and Janim and Beth-tappuah and Aphekah,


In Gath, do not tell, in Accho, do not weep, - in Beth-l'aphrah, roll yourselves in dust.


And, travelling through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews;


And the bottom of the ravines, that extendeth toward the dwelling of Ar, - And adjoineth to the boundary of Moab,

And Yahweh said unto me - Do not lay siege to Moab, nor engage in strife with them in battle, - for I will not give unto thee of his and as a possession, for unto the sons of Lot, have I given Ar, as a possession.

Thou, art passing, to-day, the boundary of Moab even Ar;

Arise ye, set forward and cross over the ravine of Arnon, see! I have given into thy hand - Sihon king of Heshbon, the Amorite and his land, begin - take possession, - and engage in strife with him in battle.

as the sons of Esau, who are dwelling in Seir, did to me, and the Moabites who are dwelling in Ar, - until that I pass over the Jordan, into the land which, Yahweh our God, is giving unto us.


Arab and Rumah and Eshan,


And the Canaanite, the king of Arad who dwelt in the South, heard that Israel had entered by the way of Atharim, - so he made war with Israel, and took some of them captive.

And a Canaanite king of Arad, who was dwelling in the South, in the land of Canaan, heard of the coming in of the sons of Israel.


The king of Hormah, one, the king of Arad, one,


and it goeth out from Bethel towards Luz, - and passeth over unto the boundary of the Archites at Ataroth;


From Aroer, which is on the edge of the ravine of Arnon and the city that is in the ravine even as far as Gilead, there was not a fortress that proved too high for us, - the whole, did Yahweh our God deliver up before us.

And this land, took we in possession at that time, - from Aroer which is by the ravine of Arnon, and half the hill-country of Gilead and the cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites and unto the Gadites;

all the time that Israel hath been dwelling in Heshbon and in her towns, and in Aroer and in her towns, and in all the cities that are on the banks of Arnon, - for three hundred years? Wherefore, then, have ye not made a rescue within that time?


Uzzia, the Ashterathite, - Shama, and Jeiel, sons of Hotham, the Aroerite;

from Aroer which is on the edge of the ravine of Arnon, even unto Mount Sion, the same, is Hermon;


from the Shihor which faceth Egypt, even as far as the boundary of Ekron, northward, to the Canaanites, is it counted, - five princes of Philistines, the Gazites, and the Ashdodites, the Ashkalonites, the Gittites, and the Ekronites, also the Avvim

Now, these, are the golden boils which, the Philistines returned as a guilt-offering unto Yahweh, - For Ashdod, one, for Gaza, one, for Ashkelon, one, for Gath, one, for Ekron, one;

Announce it over the palaces in Ashdod, and over the palaces in the land of Egypt, - and say ye - Gather yourselves together upon the mountains of Samaria, and behold ye - the great disorders in the midst thereof, and the oppressed within her.


So then the boundary of Manasseh was from Asher, Michmethath, which faceth Shechem, - and the boundary goeth along unto the right hand, unto the inhabitants of En-tappuah.

and the boundary passeth over from thence towards Luz, to the side of Luz, southwards, the same, is Bethel, - and the boundary goeth down to Ataroth-addah, by the mountain that is on the south of Beth-horon the nether;

But, they who were conducting Paul, brought him as far as Athens, and, receiving a commandment unto Silas and Timothy, that with, all possible speed, they would come unto him, they departed. But, while, in Athens, Paul was expecting them, his spirit within him was being urged on, seeing how the city was given to idols. So then, he began reasoning in the synagogue with the Jews, and with them who worshipped; and, in the market-place, every day, with them who happened to be at hand. read more.
But, certain both of the Epicurean and of the Stoic philosophers, were encountering him; and some were saying - What might this picker-up-of-scraps wish to be saying? And, others - Of foreign demons, he seemeth to be a declarer: because, of Jesus and the Resurrection, he was announcing the joyful tidings. And so, laying hold of him, they brought him up, to the Hill of Mars, saying - Can we get to know what this new teaching is, which, by thee, is being spoken. For, certain foreign things, art thou bringing into our hearing: We are minded to get to know, therefore, what these things please to be! Now, all Athenians and the sojourning foreigners, unto nothing else, were devoting their leisure, than to be telling or hearing, something newer. And Paul taking his stand in the midst of the Hill of Mars, said - Ye men of Athens! In every way, how unusually reverent of the demons ye are, I perceive. For, passing through, and carefully observing your objects of devotion, I found an altar also, in which was inscribed - Unto an Unknown God. What, therefore, not knowing, ye reverence, the same, do, I, declare unto you. The God that made the world and all things that are therein, the same, being, Lord, of heaven and earth, not in hand-made shrines, doth dwell, nor, by human hands, is waited upon, as though in want of anything, himself, giving unto all life and breath and all things; he made also, of one, every nation of men to dwell upon all the face of the earth, - marking out fitting opportunities, and the bounds of their dwelling place, that they might be seeking God - if, after all, indeed, they might feel after him and find him, - although, in truth, he is already not far from any one of us. For, in him, we live and move and are: as, even some of your own poets, have said - For, his offspring also, we are. Being, then, offspring, of God, we ought not to be supposing that, unto gold or silver or stone, graven by art and device of man, the Divine, is like. The times of ignorance, therefore, overlooking, God, as things now are, is charging all men everywhere to repent, inasmuch as he hath appointed a day, in which he is about to be judging the habitable earth in righteousness, by a man whom he hath pointed out, - offering faith unto all, by raising him from among the dead? Now, when they heard of raising the dead, some, indeed, began to mock, while, others, said - We will hear thee, concerning this, even again. Thus, Paul, came forth out of their midst. But, certain persons, joining themselves unto him, believed; among whom were even Dionysius the Mars-hill judge, and a woman by name Damaris, and others with them.

Wherefore, no longer concealing our anxiety, we were well-pleased to be left in Athens, alone,

And Solomon came from the high place that was in Gibeon unto Jerusalem, from before the tent of meeting, - and reigned over Israel.


The king therefore called the Gibeonites, and said unto them (now, the Gibeonites, were, not of the sons of Israel, but of the remnant of the Amorites, with whom, the sons of Israel, had entered into an oath, and Saul had sought to smite them, in his jealousy for the sons of Israel and Judah) -

So the sons of Israel brake up, and came in unto their cities on the third day, - their cities, being Gibeon, and Chephirah, and Beeroth, and Kiriath-jearim.

Now, the inhabitants of Gibeon, heard that which Joshua had done unto Jericho and unto Ai;

But, Ishmael son of Nethaniah, escaped with eight men, from the face of Johanan, - and departed unto the sons of Ammon. Then did Johanan son of Kareah and all the captains of the forces who were with him take all the remnant of the people whom he had recovered from Ishmael son of Nethaniah out of Mizpah, after he had smitten Gedaliah son of Ahikam, - mighty men, men of war, and women and children and eunuchs, whom he had recovered out of Gibeon;


Then, spake Joshua unto Yahweh, on the day when Yahweh delivered up the Amorites before the sons of Israel, - yea he said, in the presence of Israel - Thou Sun! in Gibeon, be still, and thou Moon! in the vale of Aijalon. So the sun, was still, and, the moon, stayed, until a nation should be avenged on its fees. Is not, that, written in the Book of the Upright? So then the sun stayed in the middle of the heavens, and hastened not to go in, about a whole day. And there was no day like that - before it or after it, when Yahweh hearkened unto the voice of a man, - in that, Yahweh, himself fought for Israel.


And there came to be a famine, in the days of David, for three years, year after year, so then David sought the face of Yahweh, - and Yahweh said - It respecteth Saul and his house, as to bloodshed, in that he put to death the Gibeonites. The king therefore called the Gibeonites, and said unto them (now, the Gibeonites, were, not of the sons of Israel, but of the remnant of the Amorites, with whom, the sons of Israel, had entered into an oath, and Saul had sought to smite them, in his jealousy for the sons of Israel and Judah) - wherefore David said unto the Gibeonites - What shall I do for you, and wherewith shall I make propitiation, so that ye may bless the inheritance of Yahweh? read more.
And the Gibeonites said unto him - It is not a matter with us of silver or gold, with Saul or with his house, neither would we have a man put to death in Israel. And he said, - What do ye say I should do for you? Then said they unto the king, The man who consumed us, and who thought to have destroyed us from taking a place within any of the bounds of Israel, let there be delivered up to us - seven men of his sons, and we will crucify them unto Yahweh in Gibeah of Saul, the chosen of Yahweh. And the king said, I, will deliver them up. But the king had pity upon Mephibosheth, son of Jonathan, Saul's son, - because of the oath of Yahweh that was between them, between David and Jonathan, Saul's son. So the king took the two sons of Rizpah daughter of Aiah, whom she had borne to Saul, even Armoni and Mephibosheth, - and the five sons of Michal daughter of Saul, whom she had borne to Adriel son of Barzillai, the Meholathite; and delivered them up into the hand of the Gibeonites, and they crucified them in the mountain, before Yahweh, so they seven fell together, - they being put to death in the first days of harvest, in the beginning of the barley harvest.

And Joshua appointed them that day to be hewers of wood and drawers of water unto the assembly, - and unto the altar of Yahweh, as they are until this day, in the place which he should choose.


So then the king went to Gibeon, to sacrifice there, for, that, was the great high place, - a thousand ascending-sacrifices, did Solomon offer up on that altar.



Gilead, is a city of workers of iniquity, - tracked with blood.

If, Gilead, is in sorrow, surely false, have they been, In Gilgal, have they sacrificed, bullocks, - their very altars, shall become as heaps upon the furrows of the field.


and, the Philistines, had spread themselves out against the cities of the lowland and of the south, pertaining to Judah, and had captured Beth-shemesh and Aijalon and Gederoth, and Soco with its villages, and Timnah with its villages, and Gimzo, with its villages, - and dwelt there.

and the land of the Gebalites, and all the Lebanon, to the rising of the sun, from Baal-gad, under Mount Hermon, - as far as the entering in of Hamath:

Hamath Berothah, Sibraim, which is between the boundary of Damascus and the boundary of Hamath, - Hazer-hatticon, which is by the boundary of Hauran.

And Solomon made, at that time, a festival - and all Israel with him - a great convocation, from the entering in of Hamath unto the ravine of Egypt, before Yahweh our God, seven days, and seven days, - fourteen days.

So they went up, and spied out the land, - from the wilderness of Zin unto Rehob at the entering in of Hamath.

From Mount Hor, ye shall draw a line to the entering in of Hamath, - and the extension of the boundary shall be towards Zedad:


and Ebron and Rehob, and Hammon and Kanah, - as far as Zidon the populous;


And, out of the tribe of Naphtali, a city of refuge for the manslayer - even Kedesh in Galilee, with her pasture land, and Hammoth-dor, with her pasture land, and Kartan, with her pasture land, - three cities.

and Hazor-hadattah and Kerioth-hezron, the same, is Hazor;


So they gave unto Caleb Hebron, as spake Moses, - and he drave out from thence the three sons of Anak.

Then came near the sons of Judah unto Joshua in Gilgal, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, the Kenizzite, said unto him, - Thou, knowest the word which Yahweh spake unto Moses the man of God in my behalf and in thine in Kadesh-barnea. Forty years old, was I when Moses the servant of Yahweh sent me from Kadesh-barnea to spy out the land, - so I brought him back word, as was in my heart. But, my brethren who had been up with me, made the heart of the people melt, - whereas, I, wholly followed Yahweh my God. read more.
So then Moses sware on that day saying, Surely, the land on which thy foot hath trodden, unto thee, shall belong, for an inheritance, and unto thy sons, unto times age-abiding, - because thou hast wholly followed Yahweh my God. Now, therefore lo! Yahweh hath kept me alive as he spake these forty and five years from the time Yahweh spake this word unto Moses, while Israel journeyed in the desert. Now, therefore lo! I - to-day, am eighty and five years old: I remain, to-day, as courageous as on the day when Moses sent me, as my strength was then, so also my strength is now, - for war, both to go out and to come in. Now, therefore, give me this mountain, whereof Yahweh spake, on that day, - for, thou thyself, didst hear, on that day, that, Anakim, were there, and great cities fortified, if so be Yahweh be with me, then shall I dispossess them, as spake Yahweh. So Joshua blessed him, and gave Hebron unto Caleb son of Jephunneh, for an inheritance. For this cause, hath Hebron belonged unto Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenezzite, for an inheritance, unto this day, - because he wholly followed Yahweh, God of Israel. Now, the name of Hebron, was formerly, City of Arba, the greatest man among the Anakim, was he. And, the land, had rest from war.

And Judah went against the Canaanites who were dwelling in Hebron, now, the name of Hebron, formerly, was Kiriath-arba, - and they smote Sheshai and Ahiman, and Talmai.


Then came Jacob unto Isaac his father, to Mature, the city of Arba, - the same, is Hebron, where had sojourned Abraham and Isaac.

And, to Caleb, son of Jephunneh, gave he a portion, in the midst of the sons of Judah, at the bidding of Yahweh, by Joshua, - even the City of Arba, father of Anak, the same, is Hebron.


Yea they went up in the South and entered as far as Hebron, and there, were Ahiman Sheshai and Talmai descendants of the Anak. Now, Hebron, was built seven years, before Zoan of Egypt.

And Joshua came in, at that time, and cut off 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, - with their cities, did Joshua devote them to destruction.


yea there was given unto them, the city of Arba, the father of Anak, the same, is Hebron, in the hill country of Judah, - with the pasture land thereof, round about it;

So then they set apart Kadesh in Galilee, in the hill country of Naphtali, and Shechem, in the hill country of Ephraim, and Kiriath-arba, the same, is Hebron, in the hill country of Judah.

But, unto the sons of Aaron the priest, gave they the city of refuge for the manslayer, even Hebron, with the pasture lands thereof, - Libnah also, with her pasture lands;


And it came to pass, after this, that David enquired of Yahweh, saying - Shall I go up into one of the cities of Judah? And Yahweh said unto him, Go up. And David said - Whither shall I go up? And he said - Unto Hebron. So David went up thither, and his two wives also, - Ahinoam, the Jezreelitess, and Abigail, wife of Nabal the Carmelite. His men also who were with him, did David bring up, every man with his household, - and they dwelt in the cities of Hebron. read more.
Then came the men of Judah, and anointed David there, to be king over the house of Judah. And they told David, saying, Men of Jabesh-gilead, were they who buried Saul. So David sent messengers unto the men of Jabesh-gilead, - and said unto them - Blessed, be ye of Yahweh, that ye did this lovingkindness unto your lord, unto Saul, and buried him. Now, therefore, Yahweh requite you with lovingkindness and truth, - moreover also, I, will requite you, for this noble deed, in that ye did this thing. Now, therefore, let your hands be made firm, and become ye sons of valour, for your lord Saul is dead, - and, me, moreover have the house of Judah anointed, to be king over them. But, Abner son of Ner, prince of the host that pertained unto Saul, took Ish-bosheth, son of Saul, and brought him over to Mahanaim; and made him king for Gilead, and for the Ashurites, and for Jezreel, - and over Ephraim, and over Benjamin, and over, all Israel. Forty years old, was Ish-bosheth son of Saul, when he began to reign over Israel, and, two years, reigned he, - but, the house of Judah, followed David. And it came to pass, that, the number of the days that David was king in Hebron, over the house of Judah, was seven years and six months.


And the king said unto him - Go and prosper! So he arose and went to Hebron. And Absolom sent spies throughout all the tribes of Israel, saying, - When ye hear the sound of the horn, then shall ye say, Absolom hath become king in Hebron!


therefore sent Adonizedec, king of Jerusalem, unto Hoham, king of Hebron, and unto Piram, king of Jarmuth, and unto Japhia, king of Lachish, and unto Debir, king of Eglon, saying: Come up unto me and help me, that we may smite Gibeon, - for it hath made peace with Joshua, and with the sons of Israel. So they gathered themselves together and came up, even 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, - they, and all their hosts, - and encamped near Gibeon, and made war against it. read more.
So the men of Gibeon sent unto Joshua, unto the camp at Gilgal, saying, Do not withhold thy hand from thy servants, - Come up unto us quickly, and save us, and help us, for all the kings of the Amorites that dwell in the hill-country, are gathered together against us. So Joshua went up from Gilgal, he and all the people of war with him, even all the mighty men of valour. And Yahweh said unto Joshua: Do not fear because of them, for, into thy hand, have I delivered them, - not a man of them shall stand before thee. So then Joshua came in unto them, suddenly, - all the night, came he up, from Gilgal. And Yahweh confused them before Israel, and smote them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, - and chased them along the way that goeth up Beth-horon, and smote them as far as Azekah and as far as Makkedah. And it came to pass, when they fled from before Israel, they, being on the slope of Beth-horon, that, Yahweh, cast down upon them great stones out of the heavens, as far as Azekah, and they died, - more, were they who died by the hailstones, than they whom the sons of Israel slew with the sword. Then, spake Joshua unto Yahweh, on the day when Yahweh delivered up the Amorites before the sons of Israel, - yea he said, in the presence of Israel - Thou Sun! in Gibeon, be still, and thou Moon! in the vale of Aijalon. So the sun, was still, and, the moon, stayed, until a nation should be avenged on its fees. Is not, that, written in the Book of the Upright? So then the sun stayed in the middle of the heavens, and hastened not to go in, about a whole day. And there was no day like that - before it or after it, when Yahweh hearkened unto the voice of a man, - in that, Yahweh, himself fought for Israel. So Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, unto the camp at Gilgal. So these five kings fled, - and hid themselves in a cave, at Makkedah. And it was told Joshua, saying, - The five kings are found, hid in a cave at Makkedah. And Joshua said, Roll ye great stones against the mouth of the cave, - and set over it men, to watch them; but do not, ye, stay, chase after your enemies, so shall ye attack them in the rear, - do not suffer them to enter into their cities, for Yahweh your God hath delivered them into your hand. And it came to pass, when Joshua and the sons of Israel had made an end of smiting them with a very great slaughter, until they were spent, then did, the remainder that were left of them, enter into the fortified cities.

And he heard it reported concerning Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, saying, He hath come forth to fight with thee, - so when he heard it, he sent messengers unto Hezekiah, saying: Thus, shall ye surely speak unto Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God, in whom, thou, art trusting, beguile thee, saying, - Jerusalem, shall not be given over, into the hand of the king of Assyria. read more.
Lo! thou, thyself, hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all the lands in devoting them to destruction, - and shalt, thou, be delivered? Did the gods of the nations, deliver them, whom my fathers destroyed, - Gozan, and Haran, - and Rezeph, and the sons of Eden, who were in Telassar? And, when Hezekiah had received the letter at the hand of the messengers, and had read it, then went he up to the house of Yahweh, and Hezekiah spread it out, before Yahweh. And Hezekiah prayed unto Yahweh saying: O Yahweh of hosts, God of Israel - inhabiting the cherubim, Thou thyself, art GOD, even thou alone, for all the kingdoms of the earth: Thou, didst make the heavens and the earth. Bow down, O Yahweh, thine ear - and hear, Open, O Yahweh, thine eyes - and see, - Yea hear thou all the words of Sennacherib, who hath sent - to reproach a Living God. Of a truth, O Yahweh, - the kings of Assyria have devoted to destruction all the countries, and their land; and have put their gods in the fire, - for, no-gods, were they, but the work of the hands of men wood and stone and so they destroyed them. Now, therefore, O Yahweh our God, save us, out of his hand, - That all the kingdoms of the earth, may know, That, thou, art Yahweh, thou alone. Then Isaiah son of Amoz sent unto Hezekiah saying, - Thus, saith Yahweh, God of Israel, In that thou hast prayed unto me concerning Sennacherib king of Assyria, this, is the word which Yahweh hath spoken concerning him, - The virgin daughter of Zion, laugheth thee to scorn - mocketh thee, The daughter of Jerusalem after thee doth wag her head, Whom, hast thou reproached and insulted? And, against whom, hast thou lifted high thy voice? Yea thou hast proudly raised thine eyes, against the Holy One of Israel. Through thy servants, thou hast reproached My Lord and hast said, - With my multitude of chariots, have I ascended The height of the mountains The recesses of Lebanon, That I may cut down Its tallest cedars Its choicest firs, That I may enter Its highest summit, Its thick garden forest: I, have digged, and drunk waters, - That I may dry up, with the soles of my feet, all the Nile-streams of Egypt. Hast thou not heard - That, long ago, that, is what I appointed, And from days of old, devised? Now, have I brought it to pass, That thou mightest Serve to lay waste, in desolate ruins, fortified cities; And their inhabitants, being powerless, were overthrown and put to shame - They became - Grass of the field and Young herbage, Grass on housetops, and Seed parched before it came up. Howbeit, thine abode and thy coming out and thy going in, I know, - and thy raging against me. Because, thy raging against me, and thy contempt, have come up into mine ears, Therefore will I put My ring in thy nose, and My bit in thy lips, And will turn thee back, by the way by which thou earnest. And, this unto thee, is the sign, Eating this year, the growth of scattered seeds, And in the second year, that which shooteth up of itself, - Then in the third year, Sow ye - and reap, and Plant ye vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof. Then shall the escaped of the house of Judah that remain, again, Take root downward, - And bear fruit upward. For, out of Jerusalem, shall come forth a remnant, And that which hath escaped, out of Mount Zion, - the jealousy of Yahweh of hosts, will perform, this. Therefore, thus, saith Yahweh, concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not enter this city, Nor shoot there, an arrow, - Nor attack it with shield, Nor cast up against it a mound: By the way that he Came in, By the Same, shall he return, - And into this city, shall he not enter, Declareth Yahweh. Thus will I throw a covering over this city to save it, - For mine own sake, And for the sake of David my servant. Then went forth the messenger of Yahweh, and smote - in the camp of the Assyrians - a hundred and eighty-five thousand, - and when men arose early in the morning, lo! they were all, dead bodies!
