Joshua 10:1-2

Context
Israel Defeats an Amorite Coalition

10:1 Adoni-Zedek, king of Jerusalem, 1  heard how Joshua captured Ai and annihilated it and its king as he did Jericho 2  and its king. 3  He also heard how 4  the people of Gibeon made peace with Israel and lived among them. 10:2 All Jerusalem was terrified 5  because Gibeon was a large city, like one of the royal cities. It was larger than Ai and all its men were warriors.

3 tn Heb “as he had done to Jericho and to its king, so he did to Ai and to its king.”

4 tn Heb “and how.”

5 tn This statement is subordinated to v. 1 in the Hebrew text, which reads literally, “When Adoni-Zedek…they feared greatly.” The subject of the plural verb at the beginning of v. 2 is probably the residents of Jerusalem.
