Conquering the land

Canaanite Period
(Joshua 12 10)

It happened when Adoni-zedek king of Jerusalem heard that Joshua had conquered Ai and had destroyed it, as he had done to Jericho and its king had he done to Ai and its king, and that the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel and were in their midst: They feared greatly, because Gibeon was a great city, like one of the royal cities, and because it was greater than Ai and all its men were mighty, So Adoni-zedek king of Jerusalem sent to Hoham king of Hebron, and to Piram king of Jarmuth, and to Japhia king of Lachish, and to Debir king of Eglon, saying, “Come up to me and help me, and let us smite Gibeon, for it has made peace with Joshua and with the Children if Israel.”  The five Amorite kings joined together and ascended – the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, the king of Eglon – they and all their camps, They encamped at Gibeon and waged was against it.
