For all the Amorite kings living in the hill country are attacking us.” 3 10:7 So Joshua and his whole army, including the bravest warriors, marched up from Gilgal. 4 10:8 The Lord told Joshua, “Don’t be afraid of them, for I am handing them over to you. 5 Not one of them can resist you.” 6 10:9 Joshua attacked them by surprise after marching all night from Gilgal. 7
