1:22 When the men 1  of Joseph attacked 2  Bethel, 3  the Lord was with them. 1:23 When the men of Joseph spied out Bethel (it used to be called Luz), 1:24 the spies spotted 4  a man leaving the city. They said to him, “If you show us a secret entrance into the city, we will reward you.” 1:25 He showed them a secret entrance into the city, and they put the city to the sword. But they let the man and his extended family leave safely. 1:26 He 5  moved to Hittite country and built a city. He named it Luz, and it has kept that name to this very day.
