Israel Conquers Ai

8:1 The Lord told Joshua, “Don’t be afraid and don’t panic! 1  Take the whole army with you and march against Ai! 2  See, I am handing over to you 3  the king of Ai, along with his people, city, and land. 8:2 Do to Ai and its king what you did to Jericho 4  and its king, except you may plunder its goods and cattle. Set an ambush behind the city!”

8:3 Joshua and the whole army marched against Ai. 5  Joshua selected thirty thousand brave warriors and sent them out at night.
